Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Woohoo I am heading to the park this Thursday, the 26th for the first time since bash! Pumped to finally ride lex! I'm taking a very good friend of mine that I believe has only been on x2 a few times, and we went on green lantern once when we were there last season (neither of us were feeling well that day so we didn't end up riding a whole lot).

So I am planning on going for a full day, open-close with a break in the middle for hurricane harbor. Now neither of us have been to HH before so I would appreciate some recommendations and tips on what slides to be sure to go on and which ones are skippable? Or should we be able to do most of them in say 3 hours on a Thursday afternoon?.

 

Also, a shout out to anyone who has tricks up their sleeve to make the most out of a Thursday at this time of the season (Pm's are welcome). I really want to start the day with LLDOD, but after that I dunno, and later in the day we'll probably re-ride LLDOD via the single rider line, but for our first ride on it we wanna do it together. Also maybe 2 rides on x2? Like I said any tips/ideas are welcome. I hate to be another guy asking this kind of thing in this thread, I know it can be annoying, but I'm just not sure what to expect for crowd disbursement sith LLDOD now and also throwing in hurricane harbor somehow in the day is a first as well (what hours would be best to do this?)

 

Thanks again.

^ Well, I don't know if you should do Lex first, because on Tuesday it opened an hour late and more people still go to X2. In my opinion, you should run to X2 as fast as you can and try to be one of the first people on. Then head up to Tatsu, keeping a quick pace and get a short line. After Tatsu, head to Superman and get on that. Then head down to Lex Luthor. Yesterday it had a 25-30 minute wait all day, which isn't a big deal (X2 was almost an hour all day). Then head over to Goliath. It should be about 1:30 or a little earlier then. Head over to Hurricane Harbor. I don't go to HH often so ask someone else about the best slides. Whenever you finish at HH, head back and hit up X2 again. After that, go in any order you like to ride anything else. That is how I usually go through the park.

I usually make X2 the first or last ride of the visit then just go around the park in either direction hitting rides as I come to them. Tatsu is awesome at night and sometimes if the line isn't too bad ill hit that then other times ill just check the line from time to time to see what the wait is. Flash passes do help though if you can justify the expense. On most of the rides I come across if the wait is too long I will just skip it and do something else then come back to it later.

^But he also wants to do HH. No matter what day I go, I can be done with all major coasters by 2:30 PM. If you go as fast as you can in this order:

X2

Tatsu

Superman

Apocalypse

Riddler's Revevnge

Green Lamtern

Batman

Lex Luthor

Colossus

Scream

Goliath

Don't go near the parks today, they are PACKED!!! Over flow parking is full, they are now parking cars across feedmill in the small dirt lots with still a line at the toll gate. Saw Bonnie out by the ticket booths, they looked flustered. I believe today was one of the free friend Sundays, so I believe that is what is driving in the crowds.

That's insane!!! I can't imagine the lines! But I wonder why a free ticket day would drive in so many people.. They don't usually. Mothers and Fathers Day usually aren't too bad. Hmm... Well I hope they have all the rides open and running at full capacity..

A free ticket day on a July summer weekend would result in a much, much larger crowd than a free ticket on Mother's or Father's Day.

This would be an excellent day for a FlashPass.

According to RideHopper (reported by people in the park):

30min: Revolution

45min: Colossus, Green Lantern, Viper

60min: Scream, Apoc, SEFK, Batman

120min+: Goliath, Lex Luthor, Ninja, Roaring Rapids, Riddler

Not Running: Tatsu, X2

(It only goes up to 120 so those lines could be longer)

60min for Scream!?.... WTF?

 

The park is packed and Tatsu and X2, probably the most popular rides in the park on one of the busiest days ever, are NOT running? Wow, that's a big fail on the park. Way to run the park there Bonnie!

I don't think it was scheduled downtime, they're probably just down unexpectedly. There's no way they'd do that on purpose on a hot and busy Summer day.

EDIT: Tatsu already reportedly back up, and with a 2 hr line. Also, remember..the reports can only come from inside the park as the app uses GPS verification, but anyone in the park can report whatever they want. It's more useful to look at the overall trends rather than precise numbers.

Yeah I suppose but.....can you believe an hour wait for Scream!? I have never experienced more than a 10 minute wait for that ride, this is insane! SO glad I'm not in the park today, it's hot, very crowded, long waits on everything, must be total hell.

Thanks for the tips LaMapa, and others. Maybe we will take your advice and head to x2 first, Immediately followed by Tatsu. Is there a shortcut from Tatsu's station to Samurai Summit [superman]?

 

Again, any help or tips for Hurricane Harbor are greatly appreciated. Should we try and do just a few coasters in the morning and head to HH before 12 noon? Or should we wait till closer to dinner time?

^When I visited Hurricane Harbor, the park cleared out for the last hour or so of operation. If you aren't going for the full day, you're probably best going there in mid/late afternoon and staying until they close. The top slides in the park are Tornado (funnel slide), Black Snake Summit (three speed slides and two innertube slides), Taboo Tower (three speed slides), and Bamboo Racer (mat slide). None of these are must-ride slides, but they are probably the ones you'll want to focus on. The other slides are standard innertube and body slides, and a family raft slide. Lines of 45-60 minutes can sometimes happen at this park (especially for Tornado and the raft slide), although they are usually in the 15-30 minute range on most days. Honestly, if you only have one day I'd recommend skipping Hurricane Harbor since it is a separate admission and isn't really worth it unless you're going to the waterpark for a full day.

 

I would advise against doing X2 first, as it often doesn't open on time and usually has a shorter line in the late afternoon. You're best off either starting at Tatsu and going clockwise, or starting at Goliath/Lex Luthor/Green Lantern and going counter-clockwise. If you do X2 first and it doesn't open on time, Tatsu's line will likely be 30-45 minutes by the time you get there. Yes, there is a path next to Tatsu to get up to Superman and Ninja.

 

You should be able to do everything, although if you take time to do Hurricane Harbor that may not be the case. However, having time for re-rides is unlikely unless you purchase a Flash Pass. The park can get 2-3 hour waits in the summer, especially for X2 and Tatsu.

The park is just ridiculously busy today. Those are long wait times relative to the normal wait times for those rides, but they're short wait times relative to the other rides right now cause it's just so busy. At the moment, LL, Batman, Goliath, Ninja, RR, Tatsu, Riddler, and X2 all are reported to have lines over 2 hours.

 

I've been periodically watching the wait times on everything at the park since I'm planning a weekend visit in October during Fright Fest..trying to decide which day would be the least busy..most likely going Sat 10/13 or Sun 10/14. I've never been during FF before, are there certain days that aren't as busy? The park is only open weekends in October (except one Monday in which FF activities won't be operating) so I'm not sure what days would be better than others.

^ During FF you are much better off on a Friday/Sunday than Saturday.
Appreciate it. My off days are Sunday/Monday and I live 6 hrs away from the park so Sunday is the most convenient but if it's a significant difference I can do Saturday instead.

I usually leave by 2 or 3, so it is usually more worth it to me to start at X2 and wait until it opens.

 

But since you are spending the whole day there, I would play it by ear, and if X2 opens on time, ride it, but if it doesn't, go to Tatsu.

I hope the ridiculous crowds today will mean a slower day next Thursday [i know, not likely to affect it, but one can hope]. Those wait times are just insane... so glad I'm not at the park today.

I apologize I should have stated that I have HH on my season pass, and I'm using the friend free coupon for HH for my friend, as well as the 50% off friend's MM admission. I feel like we shouldn't have much of a problem getting on all the major rides as well as Hurricane Harbor in a FULL Thursday. Anyone else with HH input? Thanks alot!
