Visit Two Of The Season!
Sunday we went to the park expecting really heavy crowds, and insane lines. . . Boy were we in for a surprise. The park was the complete opposite. Judging by the parking lots, you would think the park was going to be packed, not sure where all the people were but the lines for the rides were almost non-existent. We got to the park around 10:00am, and around 3:00pm (which is early for us.) Not sure if it was just a lack of sleep, or heat exhaustion (or both) but were were both feeling rather miserable by the 3:00, so we called it a day and left early!
First ride of the day (as always) was Wildfire. We finally figured out which train has the worst "rattle" and it's train two. The rattle is really distracting, and almost makes the ride feel rough. However a later ride on train one was just as glass smooth as expected!! From now on we will only ride in train one to make sure Wildfire is as amazing as it can be!!
After Wildfire we headed over to Powder Puff which shockingly had a full que, and kept a full que almost all day. However, thanks to our Season Pass Trailblazer pass we walked right on in about 3 minutes! They were running only two trains, which was a little annoying, but nothing major. Sadly as we were waiting for our second ride on the coaster two separate guest ended up getting sick. It didn't cause any delays, but it was just awkward. . . Am I the only one who finds it awkward when a guest gets sick at a park?? Its like the giant purple elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about.
Leaving Powder Puff we headed over to Outlaw Run which had a 0 minute wait. We didn't even bother using the trailblazer lane, we just walked straight through the main que and onto the coaster. Just as amazing as always. We then headed over to Fire In The Hole which ended up being a REALLY annoying ride because we were trapped near an over talkative enthusiast. . .
After Fire In The Hole we tried the new "Southwestern Chicken" skillet food, and we were both highly disappointed. It was not nearly as good as some of the parks other skillet food. Not sure what it was about it, but it really just didn't seem to "fit" in the park.
After the skillet food we rode Fire In The Hole again. Much better ride this time!! We left Fire In The Hole and we to Great American Plunge! First water ride of the season!! I had no idea how long the baby making tunnel was. But it was nice and relaxing. I also found a random part of the long flume that use to exist, but no longer does which I was going to take pictures of, but stopped caring because I was feeling like death. Great American Plunge provided a surprisingly large splash!! It was nice and refreshing, but not enough to make me feel any better. We did Grand Fathers Mansion, grabbed some Cinnamon Bread and then left!
All in all, a decent day at the park had it not been for both of us not feeling good, and a rather annoying ride on Fire In The Hole neither of which were the parks fault.
Thanks for reading, and I assure you the next update will have much more, and better photos!! As well as a look at the random old log flume!
