I got to the park at 3:45 today so I had more time than last week. From the lot I saw Superman had around a 30 minute wait.

 

Like last week Nitro was first with the line just before the 30 minute sign and was around 10 minutes. I walked around for another ride this time having a station wait and walked around again for a 3rd ride. It was nice to see a security guard in the line even though the wait was short today.

 

Batman's line was almost to the 30 minute sign at the end of the tunnel. It took around 20 minutes which was longer than normal for a line to that spot.

 

Skull Mountain was a 2 train wait and I walked around for a 2nd ride.

 

Both sides of the Skyway were running with only a few people in line on each side. The Jason Derulo concert must have just let out since Frontier Adventures was very crowded. Runaway Mine Train had broken down and I went to Best of the West and walked out when I saw there was a very long line and instead went to Nathan's in the Boardwalk.

 

At Green Lantern, the greeter was stopping people from climbing through the switchbacks at the start of the queue which was nice to see. There was a 2 train wait for most rows except for the front. The single rider line was open and I used the regular line since I wanted the last row. There was a family of 4 in the single rider line and wanted to ride together so the ride op told them to go back down the stairs to the regular line and they could get right into the station. They didn't want to do that and started to climb through the railing into the main part of the station. The ride op told them they couldn't do that since it was line cutting and had to tell them 3 times not to. As soon as the ride op turned away, they quickly went through the railing. He noticed and notified I think the supervisor at the ride that they had cut the line. Unfortunately, they didn't get in trouble. Security did show up a few minutes after they left the ride and I don't know if it was because security was called or they just happened to be there to check on things as you see security in the station of the rides once in a while. I walked around for a 2nd ride again going for the last row.

 

Superman still had around a 25 minute wait so I skipped it again and went back to Frontier Adventures riding Runaway Mine Train with no wait and getting a re-ride. From Runaway Mine Train I saw Bizarro had around a 20 minute line and didn't feel like waiting so I skipped it today, took the Skyway back to the Dream Street station with no wait and rode Skull Mountain with no wait.

 

Blackbeard's also had no wait, same with Batman. Nitro had a line on the stairs and I finished the trip with another ride at Nitro this time with a station wait.

 

The concert didn't seem to bring large crowds to the park although it was slightly more crowded than the last time I went to the park on Easter.

Batman, 2x

Skull Mountain, 3x

I saw someone win a monkey later in the day. 4 people were carrying it to their car.

I feel slightly insulted that you didn't ride Bizarro tonight, but I can understand why. Once the concert let out the line went from 0-5 minutes to 50-60 minutes in a matter of seconds.
