Was at the part yesterday - beautiful day thanks to the weather, but it got pretty crowded! Cars were being parked and guests trammed over from overflow down the street, and Griffon maintained an hour wait all day, with Alpengeist and Apollo at around a half hour each during the busier portions of the day thanks to their crews. Later in the night Apollo was dispatching the second one train crested the lift, before the next had even made the final turn around the brake shed, and Alpengeist was doing just as well too!
Anyways, while we were in line yesterday afternoon for Apollo, they were (I'm assuming) shooting a commercial for Verbolten, or at least doing something to get people in line interested. Everyone had their cameras out and were talking about it, so whatever it was it worked, and if it's on TV I'm sure it'll work some more!
Oh, and while I'm here - do the seats on Mach Tower no longer shake? I remember it being advertised with the music playing that stops at the top and the shaking seats, and neither of those things were happening yesterday.
- These two were dressed up in suit and dress in front of the Verbolten car.
