I gotta say, I absolutely HATE parks when there is an empty station and ops will make you walk all the way around to ride again... and not even exaduratingly empty, but literally empty...
Six Flags this morning did not disappoint. At Nitro we didn't even ask and the guy was even announcing over the speaker that if you want to stay on the ride and you are in an empty row you may do so. We rode the back row 5 times in a row without getting up. So good!!
One little thing like this made our day so much more enjoyable. I get so frustrated at other parks when it's an 8 minute walk around every single time. They don't take mobility issues into consideration, either.
Anyway, we had an awesome day.
Ka in the front row seemed extra crazy today for some reason, I've never felt a launch so intense and smooth from that ride. For the first time ever I'd say I even prefer it to Dragster.
Safari ride to ourselves (just me and my wife, we got a private tour!) no line at all the rides for the first few hours... unfortunately wind and mechanical breakdowns were a common theme but we got on everything we wanted minus Joker before 4pm.
And yes, that was several hours after opening. The park was a scary ghostown DEAD until 2 or so?
Toro only had one train so when I wanted to re-ride around 4p the line was crawling so I only got one ride in unfortunately. Had I known I would have gotten my skip the lines for that ride. Oh well.
The Lions on the "new" walkway were amazing and played with us through the glass (they were probably just hungry and wanted to eat us)
The baby bear they hand held was also adorable AF though I didn't get a photo as they were taking him away right when we arrived.
Only actual minor complaint was it literally took about 8 minutes for them to give me a bottle of water as a snack on the dining plan at the BBQ place. We were the only ones there and it took 3 people to come over to the register and about 8 scans to my membership card for them to get it right. Such a minor inconvenience but that's all I can really think of operational wise.
Tip: for those that don't like free water (I don't get the bottled water thing, but my wife on the other hand....) they cost an outrageous 5.49 (5.79?) ea or 2 for 10 at all the stands, but the vending machines still have them for 4.50. lol what a deal. Memberships would bring down the cost but thought I'd mention this huge money saving tip.
