Ok, well even though WOF is my "local" park, I usually only go about once per year, and since I had 2 days off after classes were over before I start working I had to get down the KC to ride Prowler.
As you might have expected, there were not many people there on a weekday in May, and a gigantic majority of the people who were there were middle-school field trips. (Their shirts said "class of 2009", but they def. weren't in high school, I guess you kind of "graduate" from junior high)
There were probably more people in line for Papa Johns @ SFOT during spring break than there were in the entire park. With low crowds come 1 train operations which kind of sucked (Patriot ran 2 trains), but didn't really make the lines too long.
Overall, it is a very good ride, as many others have said. The pacing is very good, and the ride is pretty smooth, which delivers a good mix and the intensity is very good but not over the top. My list of wooden coasters I have ridden is rather pathetic, and it seems like every time I visit a park, they build a very good Wooden coaster the year after (Great Adventure and El-Toro for example) so as a result this is probably my #1 wooden coaster.
I would rank it 2nd behind The Mamba as far as where it ranks in Worlds of Fun collection. Unfortunately, the ride broke down twice, and the 2nd time it remained down for at least 2 hours, and was still down when I left the park.

Say goodbye to WOF and Thunderhawk.
Dragon in a messy sea.
Log flume, something is wrong with that water. Swine-flu maybe?
Huge mess of supports.
Patriot from a distance. Pretty good, those high-g lovers will be dissapointed
Mamba. Tall. (well, kinda)
One of the better parts of the ride.
Prowler's line. Note: more trashcans than people.
Main reason I drove 2 hours to the park.
Front of the park, all of the park has a "calm" feeling
