Got there right after opening. There where A LOT of school groups. Let me rephrase that: WAY too many school groups! But the great thing was they all left about 2:00, so the park was almost empty the rest of the afternoon.

HI!

First up was Steel Venom.

Twisty track...

Lines. Crap.

Wild Thing!

At least the park still has trees!

Down the midway there's...

Power Tower...

Riptide...

A closed Xtreme Swing!?!?

Explanation of closing it down... "We don't know."

Up next was Power Tower (blue!)

Corkscrew!

15.jpg.2815f52249ef0963b41a527d5749dc98.jpg

No more on-ride photos...

16.jpg.ea90b15b032358de2e9c9ef20ae66cbf.jpg

Then it was time for Wild Thing!

17.jpg.76559de436710062e2ff9babafa60135.jpg

I'll go with just the cold drink...

Up next was the ever entertaining Renegade. See, the line stopped moving for about 20 minutes. About 1/2 way through the started to run rider-less test runs, so about 70 people left the ride because they thought it was broken. They were actually adding the second train on! It only took me about 10 more minutes once they got the second train going. See, it pays to stay in line!

After lunch (corndog), a soaking ride on Thunder Canyon (VERY cold), and a shaking ride on Excalibur, it was time for Wild Thing again.

Today's worst artsy shot, lol.

Zoomage!

Xtreme Swing did open later.

This ride has the best photo ops (from the line that is).

Corkscrew was up next, where there was...

25.jpg.65a0e85d4726fce2efa6567856051372.jpg

NO LINE! That's a first for me! It was because they were running two trains (another first for me to see!) Plus, everybody in my group got head banged except for me! It pays to be six feet tall, lol!

26.jpg.d216e49d363f70dc89c60d3ab6519170.jpg

Went back to Renegade one last time after Corkscrew.

For my last ride, it was between Power Tower Red and Steel Venom, and I choose...

Steel Venom!

29.jpg.be06b8f26a2cc7a9c2e176782d5efcfe.jpg

And front row too!

Best shot of the day.

And before you know it, the day is over.

32.jpg.9499a4147b76978e1cc358e5ae106992.jpg

Bye!

Then it was time for me to go off and camp near the MN Zoo and sleep.

You did the typical first time PTR mistake. You previewed, thought the pics were backwards, and re did it.

 

Note to any who post PTR's. If you preview your post before submitting, it will show the pictures in reverse order. Not to worry, once you submit, they go up in the order you uploaded them.

 

Nice pics. And at least you had sun! Two trips to VF, and I've yet to see it.
