Published: April 22, 2008 at 6:15 PMExcellent plan...however people should be warned they will be soaked to the core by the time they finish the Barges, Ripsaw Falls, and Jurassic Park. However, those attractions are not to be missed....so people just need to bring their raincoats!
If folks do have time to tour Seuss land, they should go ahead and hit the Cat in the Hat dark ride. It is a well themed attraction and a great people mover.
And a stop at Mythos for lunch is mandatory!!!!
Published: April 22, 2008 at 7:08 PMOn a light crowd day, you really can do a good portion of what the park has to offer. My tendency when visiting this park is to turn right out of the gate instead of left...starting me at Seuss Land. My reasoning is that most people probably head left toward Hulk. There isn't a whole lot for me until you get closer to Dueling Dragons. My last trip went like this. I made a right and my order was
Cat in The Hat
Eighth Voyage of Sinbad
Enchanted Oak Tavern Restaurant...my pick over Mythos
Jurassic River Adventure
Dudley Do Right Ripsaw Falls
Popeye and Bluto
Dr Dooms Fearfall
Had it not been for the hour long downpour (again), and some ride delays, we probably would have been done in around 4 hours...at a fairly leisurely pace.

It's pretty much a straight shot straight to the alleyway where Doom is (and if it's first thing in the morning, it'll probably be your one and only chance to hit Doom with no wait)

It is pretty much the same space shot elevator ride as the one you have at your local amusment park.
