As for the eating spots, I would recommend Bubba Gump seafood. The food is delicious & they give you nice size portions.
For rides to avoid, I would not be too eager to get on Avalanche, Italian Job, Berzerker.
Hope this helps.
It's okay if you want to go on Italian Job, but it's really boring and the boost is way slower than you expect (40 mph.). The only "okay" part about it is the ending where you tear through the wall (a bit o' airtime).
Anaconda is a little rough, but the ending for an arrow is normal, 2 corkscrews, but these are better because they are over water and they are slower. I like to think of it as they make up for the whiplash. Don't over rate anything on the first drop even if it goes through the tunnel in the water, it's barely angled, about 50%.
Grizzly starts off slow, but seems to get better as it goes on. It goes through the woods, so there ya go. Hurler stands for it's name, it's a little rough. On Rebel Yell, go on the BACKWARDS. The front is just a simple out-and-back with decent airtime (not very fast going over the hills). But the BACK- hit the front or back, either way. Awesome no matter what. It feels like the first drop is 90% instead of 65 or something.
Definately hit Volcano, Dominator, and FoF, like Lawrence said. Volcano, well, it's just plain AWESOME, no matter how slow the lines are. If it's your first time riding it and you know you're going to ride it again, don't ride in the front. SAVE THE FRONT FOR YOUR LAST RIDE OR YOU HAVE TO DO IT EVERYTIME. Domintaor, I haven't been on yet, but I know it's going to be awesome. FoF startles you, and if you have a long line, try to pay attention. It seems to be closed alot, though.
Yes, hit the Crypt, maybe Ricocet if you like wild mouse coasters, Bobsleds aren't that fun, but it sorta feels like you're gonna fall off (too slow though). I only like the boost-up-down Drop rides, not the slowly-up--fast-down, or the suspence ones, so I can't give you anything on that.... Oh, I only ride Shockwave because it's the only standup I've ridden (not B&M, though), and it's only got 1 loop.
I'm just saying, the BEST WEATHER POSSIBLE is light rain; enough to keep others out, but not enough to close the rides. The only problem with rain, though, is that they slow IJ's boost EVEN MORE and they take off the fire for Volcano. Take Volcano for granted no matter what, because it's by Intamin AG and is the only launched full-circut inverted (impulse coasters don't count!).:)
