Yesterday afternoom pretty much everything was a station wait except for Renegade (and of course mad mouse). You won't have a problem getting on everything you want. I actually rode pretty much every ride at the park that isn't a kiddie coaster and it only took us about 6 hours - including eating, the dog show, and a reride on Steel Venom and Wild Thing.

You'll be fine. Ride Mad Mouse first if you care, then take the park at your leisure.

Is the flooding going down?
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

^From what I could tell, the park is not currently affected by flooding. The employee lot is back open, I couldn't see any of the main lot blocked off anymore on either of my rides on North Star.

Has anyone else noticed that the park has been a lot slower this year?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

There was a news article recently reporting that Cedar Fair’s overall attendance is slightly down so this might be a reflection of that. If anything, it seems like there have been a lot of Saturdays so far this year with less than ideal weather so that might have something to do with it.

valleyfair doesn’t attract many tourists. And the locals who visit valleyfair are tired of riding the same rides year after year with only a minor addition to look forward to.

There's been a seemingly above average number of weekdays, too.
Rain, rain; go away. Little Johnny wants to play.

This summer there's been a lot of 80-85 degree days; too cold to go swimming in the waterpark and too hot to feel like tramping around the dry park. And a lot of days where it's been raining.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

It's amazing how crowded the park gets when all the rides shut down. I was there Sunday to see the Harlem Globetrotters. I went to go ride some coasters after the show and almost every single ride had shut down. There were people everywhere! All the lines for food were so long. It was also interesting to notice all of the people that had brought a picnic to the park and were eating on the lawn outside. I've really enjoyed having Valleyfair as my home park this summer!

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

I just got home from Valleyfair today again the rides went down for two hours for lightning but it wasn’t even raining around Valleyfair the storms were south east today. But lightning was within 5 miles from the park. When the rides went down around 4:30 everybody went to the restaurants to eat with long lines but I’ve seen that many times this year.
