Not a full on report but I wanted to talk a little bit about my trip over the weekend.
We stayed at Express Hotel mainly because it was the same price as others with run and ride discount. We liked it clean and friendly the beds were comfortable.
We did 3 hours in the park on Friday when we arrived. Ended up waiting 2 hours for SV and it was worth the wait. We loved it. I was surprised my wife liked it as much as she did with how intense it is but it is both of our number 1 now. Valravn was a first time for us and our first Dive Machine we liked it especially the view. ended the night with Millie then the SkyRide.
The Run and Ride was great. We only did the 5k on this trip but we both finished easily and with a time that we have not run in a 5k before. It rained at the beginning which was fine by me. We are planning to do the half marathon next year.
We did Fast Lane saturday (thank you platinum discount). It mainly saved time on SV which held a 2 hour plus wait all day. the longest we waited with FLP was 15 minutes.
Iron Dragon Vr was our first experience with VR on a coaster and we both enjoyed it. Thought it was worth the half hour wait.
Brews and BBQ is absolutely worth it for platinum pass holders because you get a full beer on top of the 15 tickets. We ended up being stuffed and gave 3 tickets away. If you are on here and I gave you the tickets waiting for SV to open back up around 9 after weather I hope you made it in time and enjoyed your beer. highlights for me was Smoked Sausage, Carolina sliders with vinegar slaw, and nektar Zombie killer cider. We also hope to do this again next year.
We did front seat of SV at night and the bugs were insane. I rope with my shirt over my face which made things exciting as I couldn't see the track coming.
We did 5 hours in the park Sunday before heading home. If you want to ride SV in a timely manner go to magnum entrance and make it to SV no later than 9:15 so that you ride before FLP starts at 10. Sunday was more crowded than Saturday due to threats of weather Saturday.
ride count for the weekend. 5 SV rides saturday with FLP.
Steel Vengeance 7x
Iron Dragon vr 1x
Wicked Twister 4x ( holy S*** weight loss paid off and I fit again)
We also did a bunch of flats but Im not counting those.
