9/3/09, Where is everyone?

Postby Yoshi » Fri Sep 04, 2009 5:17 pm

I got to the park a little after 12:00, and the 1st part of the main lot wasn't even close to being full. Maybe 400 - 500 cars at the most.

I saw Talon going out with only the front row filled. That's where I went first and Hydra was the same. Wild Mouse looked to be 15 - 20 minutes. White Water Landing had a boat stopped right before the drop.

WWK was empty, some slide towers had no one in line. I really wish I would have gone rather than just stayed on the ride side.

Dominator was a walk on, Possessed had half full trains going out. I got 3 rides and went to Steel Force which has around an 8 - 10 train wait for the front yet almost all other rows were empty. I waited 2 trains for the last row and went to Thunderhawk also a 2 train wait. I also saw Road Rally had a huge line.

I left and got back to the park at around 6:45 with my sister, Wild Mouse and Road Rally still had lines (even though they were running 7 cars at this point), everything else was empty. We went to Steel Force with a 1 train wait, Thunderhawk with a 2 train wait, Whip with 1 cycle wait, Krazy Kars with a 1 cycle wait and then saw the Wild Mouse had a wait just out of the station so a little under 10 minutes. I also saw White Water Landing was running.

It wasn't too hot out and it was sunny so I was very surprised to see the park so empty especially with it being one of the last days of summer vacation for a lot of kids.


Ride Count, I know it isn't a lot but I was only in the park a total of less than 3 hours:
Talon, 1
Hydra, 1
Wild Mouse, 1
Possessed, 3
Thunderhawk, 2
Steel Force, 2
Krazy Kars, 1
Dominator, 1
Whip, 1

Well all the PA kids pretty much started school this week so that is probably where a lot of them are.
