Well Riddler's is at the back of the park. You can get to DeJaVu from there or from X/Viper area as well. You may want to start at the front of the park to hit those early OR maybe start at the back where the lines probably won't be too bad early in the day & maybe by the end of the day, the lines up front won't be too long??? I dunno, all I know is where the rides are & usually in the 'off' times like when school's in session during the week, there's hardly anyone in the park, you can get re-rides over & over. My advice probably isn't the best, I'm sure the experts who are more familiar w/the summertime crowds would be best to advise you. I'm just guessing. Have a great time.

X probably will have the slowest-moving line. I hear Tatsu's line moves pretty well as long as both stations work and with 3 trains running.

Just a sidenote, if there are 3 trains running on Tatsu, your train will arrive at the other station, so if you put items down on the center shelf thing, put them in the middle. But I'm only going off my experience during the first month it was open. Haven't been there since.

It depends on a few things: attendance that day, demographics, closed rides, etc; so a lot of it is "you'll see when you get there". I'd expect things to be pretty busy all this month, being July and all. When I was there at the end of last August (with crowds on the light side) I'm assuming it was after most school years had started. That particular demographic would probably have been making up the larger percentage of the riders on Riddlers, Scream, Batman, etc. These three had two trains running; Riddler was a walk-on (how many are really attracted to stand-ups to begin with?), Batman was <10 minutes, Scream <20 min. Coasters with one train will take longer obviously: I waited forever for Colossus which had only one train on one track. If a major ride is closed (X was), the others will have to absorb those riders and will lengthen lines a bit.

X first, no question.

In answer to the question about standups, those are my favorite so yes there ARE some of us who prefer them over any other style. Next wud be floorless as second fave type. But I agree, X should be first.
