It's a great park. Waterpark included. Ravine Flyer is a top 5 woodie for me.
They are one great coaster (which should be coming in next few years) away from being can't miss.
-- Ravine Flyer II remains bonkers. It was wild, aggressive, and smooth. If you like butterflies in your stomach, nothing beats getting yanked down the first drop in the backseat. Very reasonable station waits allowed me to get in four laps in about 15 minutes or so. After that, I was a little bit fatigued from the Gravity Group wildness, but it's still an awesome coaster.
-- *I was on a log flume....I was on a log flume* Thunder River was great fun as always, with lots of mist in the bonus tunnel. I love flumes and hope that Waldameer keeps this one around for a long time to come.
-- The drop tower was great! I've done it before, but the quick drop is a real doozy and the restraint feels a little bit flimsy in a good way (if you like to be terrified).
^ As awesome as Ravine Flyer II was in the back, I actually preferred it up front. The second half was significantly better for airtime up there.

Yep, I had a great ride in the front, too. It's definitely worth experiencing both ends of the train for different thrills, and I'm glad RFII is a "not a bad seat in the house" coaster. Given the semi-violent edge that some GG woodies can develop, Waldameer has done a great job keeping this ride running very well.
You can pay for individual rides right? We plan on hitting the 3.5 coasters, the drop tower. Maybe the sky ride and maybe the log flume. Should we pay for the fun card or just pay per ride? Maybe multiple rides and Ravine Flyer2.
Thanks for the advice
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks
