If you guys all hate this kind of behavior then why are you giving it clicks and views?

I didn't realize it worked that way. . thought it went off "likes" really.   Noted for the future tho.

for my part, once I realized they were pleased with how they were acting (fairly quickly in), I just closed the youtube video.

Finally got on Predator with the Titan Track and here are my thoughts -
The Good: The Titan Track feels great, it's incredibly smooth and maintains/builds speed better than pretty much all points on the ride
The Bad: Coming back out of the Titan Track you are immediately reminded how rough the rest of the coaster is, the speed that you build/maintain through the death turn (that you previously lost due to the track slowing you down) makes the next bit of track feel like getting in a bit of a car accident.

Final thoughts: The Titan Track is a huge success and improvement for that portion of the ride, I'd like to see a whole coaster done with Titan Track, but unfortunately with only a few hundred feet on the retracking done on Predator I don't really think it helps the whole experience (even thought it does massively help the one section of track).  If Six Flags wanted to keep Predator's profiling mainly the same, but transitioned the whole ride to Titan Track I would not be upset about that at all.

Hey folks,

Going to be camping in New York state between August 6th and 14th, planning on going to Darien Lake during that time.

 

Any recommendations on day of the week, time of day, and strategy for how best to navigate and enjoy them park?

 

Appreciate any insight.

I can tell you that the park is closed on Tuesdays and closes for the day at 7 except for Friday and Saturday when they close at 9.  

 

Usually as long as there is not a concert it's not so busy

Hit up Ride of Steel or Viper first, they are the only two that usually have a long line. Most head to RoS first so I usually go straight to Viper. It tends to be a slow line due to the ride being long and the manual restraints. Everything else should be short to no wait if any day but Saturday or a concert day

If you spend more than two days at Darien Lake, you are spending too much time at Darien Lake. I know your just said your were camping in the state, but hopefully you weren't planning on Darien Lake to occupy much of that. And if you're spending two days, some of that time should be occupied in the not-so-great waterpark.

You'll get bored, quick. Unless you camp here:

Thanks for the insight folks.

Yeah, we're just going to spend an afternoon there, nothing more. I don't expect it to be mind blowing or anything, just a little day trip.
