1 train running on Talon - :evil:
1 train running on Steel Force - :evil:
Possessed running on and off - :evil:

Total rides :

Talon - 1
Possessed - 2
Dominator - 1

My basketball game also doesn't seem to have jerseys as a reward this year. Won't be playing that until they get jersies.

Worse than they should have been given the low number of people in the park. I go by the parking lot. Those of us who go often know the amount of cars/buses in the lot that makes for short lines, and it seemed to me that the lines were long across the board given the number of cars. There were almost no buses and people were leaving the park, but still it was 2-3 trains to get onto Talon and same for SF and Possessed. I wasn't too happy, but I figured it's early in the year and I've got tons of visits left. I normally NEVER go when I have to wait anymore than 1 train.

I just hope this isn't a new trend of running 1 train on slow days, I mentioned in another thread and it was said 1 train runs only for weather or mechanical reasons but it seems like 1 trains has been running on those coaster a lot more than in the past

I was a bit worried about that too, but I figured it was early and the weather wasn't that great. I love extreme weather because it chases away idiots. I love going at the end of a blazing hot 95 degree day because everyone who got there at 10 is dead tired by 6 and begging their kids to leave by 8. Same thing with a dreary rainy day.

1 train is run on all the coasters during weather.

2 trains should be running on all coasters except Thunderhawk which will only put the second train on in case of excessive lines.
