Sorry for the delay of a couple of days. Here are the rest of the pictures from the trip.

I never get over the how fast this coaster seems to be going. This is the only coaster in the park where I tend to loose track of where we are on the ride.

I think the view of the lake adds a lot to this ride.

This is in line for MF the second day. This was about the average line for both days that we were there. Not too bad. It was roughly 15 minutes to the station to walk on to anything other than the front. For the front it was an extra 30 minute wait, but it was nice to be in the shade.

They should change the name to "The Stripper" She is so pretty to look at from a distance, but when you get up close she is really rough. Still, you just can't resist making the mistake every time.

Although I didn't get any pics, I did spot the cars from Double Loop in the storage area under Mean Streak. I did not, however see the cars for the Big Dipper. They did have some cars covered with tarps.

Magnum cue

The Witches Wheel from the Magnum cue. They were running a much different program this year than last year when we were in the park. I have to say that this years was much more enjoyable.

Corkscrew from the cue area. The crew running Corkscrew and Magnum were both really good. If I had to pick the best crew of the trip it would be Corkscrew. It takes a lot to be enthusiastic about a caster that has been around for so long and has so few people riding. The guy unlocking the cars for the train by hopping from the front down to the back on one leg was very amusing and coordinated.

Before leaving this guy told me there would be a Woodie on the beach for 2012. Shhh... he said no one is supposed to know.

Wow, things look pretty empty!
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.

It was very empty. That week really seems like the best week of the year when it comes to a mix of crowds and weather.
