Got there at 10:15, surprising number of cars there that early but it seemed to be for the Dance Fest- the park did not feel crowded at all until about 2:00 in the afternoon.
Started with back to back Nitro rides with out having to walk around, just change rows. Nice. They were running all three trains.
Then two Batman rides, walking around between, but both were walk-ons.
Time with the little guy. Skyway and Runaway Mine Train with no wait and no bees.
Bizarro as a walk-on (by this time it is 11:30). All the elements were going as far as I could tell- but since it was my first time on it ever, how would I know?
El Toro with a 15 minute wait. Crew seemed to be moving efficiently and they worked very hard to get some larger riders able to ride. One poor girl was beet red as it took two crew to get the restraint down on her.
Lunch. Sad vegetarian. Really, a frozen salad and fries is the best I could get?
Time with the little guy. Skyway, Jolly Roger, Swashbuckler (other-wise known as a barf-ride in my family).
Skull Mountain with the babysitter. 5 minute wait. They had some entry lanes blocked off, increasing the wait, and then they randomly let some people ride in those rows. Is that what they do when one train has a malfunction in a row and another doesn't?
Green Lantern at 2:30, almost an hour long wait. But since I'd never ridden it...we waited. Single rider line was closed. And I agree with earlier discussion about the silly placement of the line- we'd waited almost half the wait when we got to that point. Afterward my ear hurt. My glasses (with a coaster nerd strap) made it hurt when I banged a bit. Next time I take them off.
We did not ride Ka as it was going and not going throughout the day. Seemed to run pretty smoothly for the first three hours and then it was run for a bit and stop for a bit (more time stopped then running). We were told, 'technical problems' when we asked.
Time with the little guy. A few games and a final ride on Runaway Mine train. 10 minute wait.
As we left at 4:45 the park felt the most full it had all day. Still plenty of people arriving.
All in all great visit and good to get to ride with my husband instead of alone and feeling guilty.

It's too bad to hear that Green Lantern's single rider line is closed, it seems to have barely been open this season which makes getting more than 1 ride per trip difficult with the way the line fills up so fast.
