It seems like Monday's special of half-off credits would be my best bet, assuming that they don't count Monday the 3rd of July as a "Holiday". Either that, or Thursday the 6th's Midnight Madness would give me tons of Hydrus rides, many at night, for potentially even less cost. That may actually be better than the Monday option!

Meh. Yeah, it was forceful enough, and smooth enough, but over FAR to quickly for $10 a ride. You go into the breaks with so much speed it just feels like there should be more coaster to it. "Underwhelmed" I guess is the best word to describe it. Oh well, rode it once, won't be again.

I rode Hydrus a few times yesterday and really liked it. The lapbars are amazing. From someone who rides a similar coaster (Untamed) with OSTRs pretty often, I was amazed how much better the ride was. The already great drop had even more pronounced air. And then it was nice not having to worry about my head hitting the restraint on the snappy transitions. I honestly liked it better than Gale Force.
I had the wristband (so I didn't focus on the per ride cost as much).

Got to ride Hydrus on Saturday night and it's pretty fun, was my first Eurofighter, I enjoyed it. Only ride I went on because it was after 9pm so they stopped selling the wristbands and I wasn't ever going to pay anymore money for rides I've already been on
Having been on its "big brother" Untamed at Canobie Lake Park, I can resolutely say the lap bars help elevate the ride substantially. Untamed was fun, but there's nothing like riding hands-up through a zero-G roll with just a lap bar holding you in. I've got a bunch of photos on my phone I've been meaning to upload, maybe I'll do it tonight.
