A theme park gift under $10? Theme Park Insider: 2016 Year in Review
After that I went on Joker's Jinx. This was my favorite ride in the park. After a few rides on that, I went over to Superman. I saw the long line and decided to use a Flash Pass so I could walk right on. The ride attendant out front asked that I first use the test seat. Wouldn't you know it, I didn't fit. So I moved on and then got in line for Batwing. It went down so I then decided to go on Joker's Jinx a few more times and then I went over to Roar. I rode once and then I went over to the crappy Vekoma SLC, Mind Eraser. I pulled the restraint down, with my ears just touching the side pads on the harness. I asked myself “Why do I have the feeling this is going to hurt?” We went up the lift and then the rest of the ride was extreme
After that, I ate lunch and took a Tylenol. I then went back over to Joker’s Jinx and rode for about an hour. I then went back to Roar and then tried the crappy SLC again. It was getting late and so I went over to Batwing, catching a few more rides on Joker’s Jinx along the way. Batwing was actually the first coaster I’ve ridden that almost made me sick. I would have gone again, but my stomach wasn’t up to it.
Only two hours left before the park closed and I decided to finish off the day with Joker’s Jinx. I used up the rest of my Flash Passes on this one. During the last hour I found a member of ACE and we talked about coasters and stuff like that. WHen I was waiting in line, a ride attendant pointed out that I had ridden a lot that day. Out of the quiet lady behind me there was a snobby voice that said, "Well Mind Eraser is better." (Mind Eraser is a rough, painful Vekoma SLC)Everyone in the station, even the ride operators, stopped what they were doing and gave her a stupid look. After riding the last train of the night, everyone asked for one more ride and the ride operator was nice enough to let us stay on. This time we went through the course MUCH faster than before. As the ride ended we stopped on the brake before the station waiting for the next train to dispatch. The other train launched and then after it was through the cobra roll, a big red light lit up on the control panels. It was an E-Stop. The other people in our train started to freak out because the vibrations in the track from the other train got stronger and stronger. Then the other train stopped right behind us. After about 20 minutes, maintenance came out, did a reset, and our train moved into the station. We then got off and left the park.
Good things about the park:
-The attitudes of the staff members were much better than my last visit. Everybody seemed to be in a good mood for once.
-The Wild One seemed smoother than before.
-The food was okay, but not the best.
-Maintenance got to Joker’s Jinx faster then I expected. It took about 20 minutes.
Bad things about the park:
-The ride ops still take a little too long to load, but this has improved since my last visit.
-Some of the restrooms were closed before everybody left the park.
Overall I enjoyed my visit. I never thought I would have a good time at my home park. I look forward to using the season passes a lot. Oh, sorry for not having photos, the camera started to go stupid again and didn’t want to work.
