Start at Dragster if it's open because it's going to break down 150 times throughout the day and it could screw up your plans if you save it for last. Get on the first available row. It's infinitely better in the front but just get on it once so you at least got one ride in. If you care you can come back later.

Alternately you could hit Iron Dragon first since it doesn't have Fastlane but even a full queue isn't that bad (especially not if you hit up the "Dive In" for a beer before popping in line).

Since you noted that you want to ride Sky Ride (excellent choice by the way :lol: ), my biggest tip is not to be spooked by a full queue. It moves really fast. That said, riding from the front of the park the last few hours of the night guarantees a walk-on and even with Fastlane I suggest hitting the main midway later since you won't even need to wait from the merge points on Raptor, Gatekeeper and Wicked Twister. You'll basically walk right on.

Ride the train from Frontiertown... it's much better than riding from the other station.


All good points. Another point to piggyback on your advice about TTD:

If you go in the morning, there's a chance that you might get a ride when its foggy/cloudy. So basically, when you go up the tophat, you're basically riding in the clouds. I had that experience the last time I went.

There's also a lot of game theory and strategy about how to best max your chance of getting a rollback. There's a YouTube video that goes into detail on this. But it basically has to do going in conditions that would make the train slower, but not so obvious that they plan to make the launch faster to get you over. So if this theory is true, an early AM ride might not max your chances of a rollback compared to other times of the day.

Quite a tough one, I’m almost wondering if it’s Happy Firar or Nick Knacks at Castaway Bay. Tricky indeed!
