Awesome! I was just there two weeks ago for the first time ever as well. Every ride was a walk on so we covered the park in no time. We bought fast lane passes online weeks ahead of time and were bit bummed that we didn't need them but better safe than sorry.
I found Timberwolf to be absolutely painful—moreso than Prowler. It hurt sooooooooooo
much from beginning to end. Even the new section couldn't save it from being flat out unrideable. I did it a second time in the back and it was even worse.
I loved Prowler's speed. It was relentlessly fast from start to finish but incredibly rough as well. I didn't find it painfully rough or unrideable rough but it wasn't pleasant, that's for sure.
Mamba surprised me. I loved it! Or at least the first half. I felt the back seat had some decent ejector air over the two hills and the hang time in the front seat seemed to last forever. The bunny hills on the return were between uncomfortable and painful in the back with some mild floater air in the front and middle. We rode it at least a dozen times, mostly in the front.
Partriot was alright. I'm not a huge fan of these type of coasters because they all seem to ride the same in my opinion so waiting fr more than 15 minutes to ride it would be too long for me.
Spinning Dragons was a fun family coaster. It seemed to spin faster the heavier the riders are and there's a decent airtime hill at the end.
Overall, I thought WoF was a cute park with a decent collection of coasters and classic flat rides. I spent a lot of time on the Trioka (Mustang Runner) and Enterprise (Zulu) as well. I haven't seen or ridden either one of those rides since I was around 13.
