I've never been but what I'd do is look up the rides on the website & here too, if no one responds w/a difinitive answer, you can pretty much judge for yourself which would have the longest lines. I also goto the park's website & look at their map if they have one posted & see where all the rides are I'm interested in & plot my course. I would imagine the newer, most popular ones like that new one that just opened up (i CANNOT remember the name, sorry lol) or Mil. Force, would be what ppl head to first. I'm no expert since I've never been but you can also, go to the less busy rides first & spend the remaining time in line (unless they offer something like fast pass) for the most popular rides. Or vice versa, goto the more popular ones so less likely to be a long line then goto the others. But this is how I plan my day, I'm not sure what days WOULDN'T be a good day to go, school out during the summer usually means more crowds, if that helps lol. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Have fun nonetheless!

you will get in an hour early. Ride Maverick first (would ride at least twice) then go to MF. Raptor is the other early entry ride so either that next, or if the hour is over I would go to TTD if it is open. (Piece of crap was closed on my trip last Friday (mechanical problems)). After that I'm not sure. If it were me I would start hitting haunted houses.

okay cool thanks I really apreciate it!
i'm not really sure about riding maverick twice though??? cuase to me it doesnt seem like its that great of a ride? im sure its good but I doubt its better than millennium, magnum, and top thrill!

anyone else have any sugestions?

the lines should be minimal, as kids are back to school and the park is only open on the weekends(for a reason). I cant remember if Halloweekends start this weekend or not. (The park will be decked out anyways) Prepare for windy cool weather, people forget that its on a Pennisula. As for rides, explore the park and find what you want to ride. There are 69 rides, so it hard to come up with an order. Defintely use the early ride times in the morning and check out Maverick. (Rode it for the first time last week and LOVED it) Plan on riding MF mulitple times, especially front seat at night,its the best. Raptor in the morning is PACKED, so unless avoid that til later in the day. My suggestion is to ride the smaller coasters first, because they wont seem so thrilling after riding Maverick, MF and TTD. Enjoy your trip!!!

oh by the way, Maverick is AWESOME!!! GREAT GREAT FUN!!! the launch and that first hill are crazy. one suggestion tho, dont try to go hands up, you end up with bruises on your arms. Its been awhile since a rollercoaster made me scream and Maverick definitely did. My favorite is still Millenium, but Maverick is very good!

I didnt think it would be packed either. but yea its gonna be cool for sue, the weather channel is saying 57 degrees and accuweather.com is saying 60 degrees no rain is forcasted for that day so as long as it doesnt rain I dont care if its that cold. im so ready for this trip!!!!!! you no idea lol
