^Haven't been since 2012 and 2013, so I can't exactly speak on how they're running now, but one thing I would advise is stay in the " - 1" seats. From my experience, it makes a world of difference.

Obviously with 2 bench PTCs they're all wheel seats, but front wheel of any car tends to run much better than back-wheel.

(Also applies to some steelies - Kingda Ka comes to mind)

I would be a first time visitor, I had originally planned the last week of May to visit along with heading over to Kings Island though I forgot schools will all likely be letting out plus memorial day weekend is during this time, would this be a good time to visit or should I do it the week before or the week after to avoid the crowds? I was looking at doing Tues-Weds timeframe.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

From my experience, lines in the ride park aren't usually too bad. I went on a holiday weekend the past two years and the longest line I've seen for the coasters has been a half hour.

The water park can get bad crowds on a hot day though. Fortunately the two water coasters have single rider lines.

I would say the week before would be the safer bet* overall, but if you're planning on 2 days instead of 1 then you'd still easily do everything more than once, as long as you're not going on Memorial Day itself.

Lot of schools here in SE MO are getting out end of 3rd week but I don't personally feel that has a big impact on HW attendance; I cant speak much for IL but the towns I know of close by are getting out mid to end of last week so Tues-Wed might still be ok even with that.

*Should have checked the calendar first. They are open the week before but with lesser hours and that week is designated as a school week, IE field trips and such.

My advice is to stick to your original plan. Weekdays through May 24 are "School Days": https://www.holidayworld.com/group-discounts/school-groups/school-days/

Whichever you choose - have fun!

Who else will be at Holiwood Nights this weekend? I'm excited to try all those woodies (and Thunderbird) at night.

Was more of a last minute opened opportunity, but I am registered and plan to be there. Should be fun! Seriously can't wait to come back to the park.

We will! First time at the event, 3rd time at HW overall.
