Not sure if you are aware of this, but Batwing is closed until further notice. Everything else should be up and running for you tomorrow. Have a great time and make sure to get lots of rides on Superman and Wild One!
I’d say go for it. IMO, it’s a fun spot to spend half a day or so at. Generally low crowds and good rides. Most of my visits have been positive. Operations are often slow (especially food) but I’ve rarely waited more than 15-20 min for anything in the dry park excluding Wonder Woman, Ragin Cajun, and Batwing, even on crowded days.
A few tips to consider: -Ride Superman in the very front, preferably the red train if possible -Batwing is fun and intense IMO, but too rough for some, though it will probably be down for your visit anyway. If it is open, ride it as early as you can, the line for that ride can easily reach 45 min if it’s down the steps and through a switchback or two and on one train, due to very long dispatch times. -I like Wild One best in 2nd to back. If you’re riding alone, ride in the left seat. If with a partner, the larger person should be in the left if possible. You’ll thank me on the helix. -RC is fun IMO, but if the queue is mostly full, you’re looking at a 45 min wait based on my experiences, which isn’t worth it. If not riding with a partner, push down against the slopes metal plate by your feet to avoid awkwardly sliding around in the car. -Ride Firebird in or at least near the back row, preferably an inner seat -JJ is good anywhere on the train, but I find it most intense in the front -The drop tower is short but has a good kick to it -The show near the Wild West section was cheesy/goofy fun that I personally enjoyed -The fries and onion ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings side at Jonny Rockets is a snack on the dining pass and is a generous portion (by Six Flags standards). -If it winds up being crowded and you park way in the back (doubt it since it’s a weekday in May), don’t take the tram, just walk. -I wouldn’t ride the penguin raft ride if I were you. -If you want shade, go to the looney toon kids area near RC and the kiddie coaster

No great loss for me, dispatch times on it are quite slow . . . . I'm assuming it's down because a part has to be ordered?
Wonder if we'll be hearing come August something along the lines of "Batwing will be closing and something else is going to be in it's place?"
From what I've read, wasn't Batwing the best of the 3 Flying Dutchman's?
I doubt Batwing will be removed after this season. It has a few more years left in it especially with the closing of Firehawk. Next year’s addition is most likely going where Dare Devil Dive used to be.
While that is true, I honestly don’t think it matters that much since the park has a lot of coasters for the size of the park. Plus, they added Superman, Joker’s Jinx, Batwing, and Roar all within a short period of time. What they have been doing lately is very smart since they are going around the park and trying to fix some of the worst parts of the park. First with Southwest Territory then with the waterpark. While most of the people here complained about the Wahoo River addition, it was such a great idea since it was one of the worst if not THE worst lazy river. The next focus for them I think is going to be a Gotham CIty makeover starting off with the addition of a Zamperla Frisbee.
