I was also at the park yesterday, but unlike you guys I always seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Maverick, Gatekeeper, Raptor, Gemini were all closed when we got to them. Steel Vengeance opened at 9:30, Maverick didn't open until way later.
Besides that, lines were manageable when I showed up. TTD @ 15 min, Valravn @ 15 min, Rougarou walk-on, Magnum walk-on, Skyhawk walk-on, Millennium Force 5 min (!) that was the biggest surprise of the day. Fiancee wasn't feeling well so we didn't stay all day and I went solo for some rides.
On Steel Vengeance we rode in rows 2 and 3 on separate occasions, and the ride later in the afternoon was significantly better/wilder in both of our eyes. The bucking bronco at the end was definitely more forceful. I guess this is one of those rides that "warm up" though both rides were still awesome. Hopefully I'll get back near the back row sometime soon.
One thing I thought was interesting was row 3 the lapbar was not staying completely up when unlocked it kept "falling down" a little bit so when they locked it, it ran into some issues but they kept people in that row anyway. The op knew there was an issue with it because she kept trying to push it up and it wasn't staying, but she shrugged it off. Another row was closed off/disabled all day while we were there.
For food I ate at the new BBQ place and the chopped pork was pretty tasty (though I didn't care for the BBQ sauce they used), and I also tried Chickie's and Pete's but the cheesesteak was a huge letdown (bread was a weird texture and the meat was overcooked with little to no flavor) and the fries I don't think were the real thing (just regular cut fries with a little seasoning rather than the crinkle cut ones we got at Dorney one time). Luckily I have the Dining Plan, but I probably wouldn't eat there again unless I was at the bar to have some drinks. I thought Melt was the only location with a bar within the park for liquor but I guess that isn't true.
Great day and the weather held out the entire day, despite it literally raining our entire drive from Buffalo until we got to Sandusky.
