I had a good 3 days at the park starting with Thursday as some read in my earlier report. I decided to go back Friday but just to take my son to Planet Snoopy. I just failed at planning on this day. I did not anticipate the hour long wait just to get off the highway and park and did not anticipate the obscene crowds in Planet Snoopy. I should have known better. I did get to take him on his first ride on Woodstock Express ( formally known as Beastie) which made the fact that we were only able to ride a few things better. Every food place had long lines but I noticed that they were moving much better than on opening day last year. I should have known better with it being 80 and sunny to stay away from the park for that first day.

He was pumped about the ride when we hit the brakes.


Now as for yesterday (Sunday) i had a hunch there would be small crowds and took the family up to the park. we were there a little over four hours. Had two meals on our meal plan and rode everything in Planet snoopy multiple times and took a ride on the train. it was a perfect day. Thank you zombie jesus day and thank you impending doom rainstorms that never hit.

In other news, Kings Island's GM Mike Koontz (no... that's actually his name, I couldn't believe it either) confirmed in a recent interview with CoasterRadio.com that Mystic Timbers is scheduled to be open for Winterfest. No big surprise, but it's still awesome news.

Awesome! That pretty much confirms a trip down there for me. Hopefully that's also a good omen for DB to be open as well
