Today was my first trip to the park in over 2 months. I got there just after 5:00 and saw the lot didn't look too crowded for one of the last weeks of summer vacation for some school districts. The only ride listed on the closed rides board was Zumanjaro.
I went to Nitro first and the line was to the 60 minute sign. 3 trains were running and it took around 30 minutes, a little longer than normal. I got the B train and it was great to ride Nitro again.
Batman was next with no wait for row 7. It looks like they changed the braking where the train completely stops on the brakes outside before advancing to the holding brakes right before the station.
The Dark Knight had no wait and it was nice to see the Bat Signal working again. The horn on the clown subway car at the end of the ride was not working.
Skull Mountain was a station wait with 2 trains running. It was the same with Runaway Mine Train.
The Log Flume was only a 5 minute wait and the water level in the trough seemed to be at a higher level than usual.
Bizarro had 3 trains running with a station wait. This was the first time this season I saw the mist turned on from the Auger of Doom.
El Toro had almost the first set of switchbacks full and was just over 20 minutes for the 5th car.
While on the brake run on Bizarro I saw that no Kingda Ka trains were launching. When I walked over there after El Toro, I saw it was broken down. A few minutes later they launched a few empty trains and then opened the line. There was hardly anyone waiting from before the breakdown and not many people waiting for the ride to open and it was around 5 minutes for a middle row. This was my first Kingda Ka ride of the season and at the end of the ride I got a headache. Even though I really wanted to take advantage of the short line and go for multiple rides, I decided against it and went back to the other side of the park.
Skull Mountain had an almost empty station and I was able to get 5 rides in a row before going back to Nitro waiting around 10 minutes. A night ride on Nitro is one of my favorite things in the park. I finished the trip at Batman walking onto row 2.
Even though there was still around 25 minutes until the park closed, I had enough coaster rides for the day and decided to leave before closing which is rare for me.
The park is already selling Terror Trail access for Season Pass Holders
I like how the Golden Kingdom now has some great new viewing angles of El Toro
