So I arrived at the park around 4:45, I went to go get my pass and then headed for the fountain for the 5pm meet-up. I waited about 20 minutes then decided to just go off on my own. So I first headed over to Chiller to see what was up. I did not see a Batman train behind the station and it was still closed. So I went into the station and there was almost no line. I waited 2 trains for the front row and off I went! I still love that launch, so heading up the spike I noticed that there were more LIMs on the spike and I went farther up it, nice. Batman's hump is alright to go past but it was more interesting with the gap. In the station I looked at Batman's side and it looks as if it's still missing LIMs in the station but oh well.

 

From there I traveled over to Nitro and decided to go throught the queue as it was empty. I walked right into the station and onto the back row. It was only running 2 trains still but the lines were non-existant at the time. I could've gotten a re-ride but somebody hurled. So from there I decided to go on the Big Wheel to get some nice pictures and relax. I got some nice shots and I had forgotten how high it really goes. I then saw that Batman had no lines either so I went over to it and walked on to the front row and that station was empty, and I have the picture to prove it. Batman is best in front row but it still packs a punch.

 

I decided then to go down to the Boardwalk and see what was up. I saw that Superman had a line but that coaster is so boring it's dead to me. I decided to get some rides on GASM as it was a walk on. I got on front row 3 times in a row. Only good part of the front row is the air you get coming into the MCBR.From GASM I thought that the 7pm meet-up was at Nitro so I headed over there. I waited in the test seat a good 10 minutes and decided to just go on it anyway. I went up the exit as I saw a line had begun to grow. I then heard my name ring out from across the way, it was JR. Since his group only had 3 I hopped on the back with them. We walked over to Skull Mountain and got a ride in. Then from there we hopped on the Skyride b/c he was going over to Medusa. I told him I was going to Ka and we split from there.

 

So I headed over to Ka and saw that both sides were open and it was running all 4 trains. So I was headed over to the ramp when I see Josh entering the queue with Gabe and Jay. So I called over to them and told them to come with me. So we went up the ramp into the station and decided to go to the left side with Schoolbus and Blueberry. So as we were waiting for Blueberry they launch Schoolbus and it comes back into the station. Then we see them back Schoolbus up into our line and bring Blueberry back into the station. For this I came up with the phrase "You just got Ka'd". So we waited, and we waited and we waited some more. Amanda soon joined us in the station and she went in another row. Finally it got up and running and we get in the front row. We started to chant Rollback and got the whole train going. We went up and we crested it with some speed, definately not a rollback. I got a nice ORP though. From there we decided to hit up Toro. We walked up the ramp into the station and waited for back row. El Toro is always fun in the dark. Let me tell you this, El Toro was a beast, probably my best ride ever, it was insane with the speed and airtime and it charged up the floater hill and through the course. That thing was not out of speed at the end either. Whew.

 

So we got off and waited for Amanda and asked her if she wanted to go to Chiller. So we went along with her mother over to it and when we got there we sent Gabe in to scout out the line. He told us it was clear. So I ran to where the lines split and jumped over the trash can into Batman's line and wanted to see if they would follow me, foolishly they did but I turned them back. We got into the station and Beethoven was op and we were talking to him. We saw Dan (kkrider09) and Amanda sat with him. Me and Josh waited for the front and it was awesome. I pointed out the new LIMs and we went right back in the station. Dave said Batman wouldn't be ready and that it's train was still not together yet.

 

From there we decided to hit up Nitro. We went up the exit to avoid the line and we got on 2nd to last row. We took one hilarious on ride photo and we decided to hit up Candy Mountain last. It was average as usual. When we got out we took pictures with some Staff and then we split from there. I headed over to Batman and waited 3 trains (cause they took one off the track) and got on 2nd row. After that I decided I was done and it was 10, so I hit up the High five line and left.

 

It was a great night altogether with everyone.

I really liked the shot of Chiller at sunset. That was a beautiful photo even though you said you didn't like it, well I DID. I have to get back up there. It has been about 5 years since I've been to GA. The last time I was there, I had an incident with an undesireable person there and they wanted to arrest me because she said I assaulted her in line when in turn the only thing I did was report her for line jumping. She was overdeveloped 14 year old girl if you know what I mean. Some people just ruin it for me. Maybe I'll go during the week and won't run into the undesireables who come to the park on the weekend. Anyway really nice photos Buddy!

I wonder if this park is nicer?

I actually haven't been to SFNE, all I know is that GAdv is much bigger and has more coasters. Its been getting nicer though under the new managment.

I'm trying to get another shot b/c i felt the sun ruined it but i didn't have my camera when i went tonight. And you should make another trip to GAdv, its been improving every year, its not as crappy as it used to be. Thanks for the compliment!

 

 

 

What about when they were getting pulled back in the station and the ride op said how was you ride??? that was great... so was the rock paper scissor too!!!
