Trip #2 started out around two in the afternoon. I started out on the Magnum, which had a surprising short wait of only 15 minutes.
Then it was on to one of my favorite rides, Paddlewheel Excursions.
Trying a second time to get pictures of the back of Shoot the Rapids, failed because my new camera wasn’t made to point and shoot a million times in a minute.
Then, I took a quick ride on the Gemini and Cedar Creek Mine Ride to stall so I could make it early to the 4 o’clock Grand Ole Country.
After Grand Ole Country, which is a great show, I took the train around a few times to take a look at Shoot the Rapids.
Then, it was onto Tropical Heat, Island Beat, which is the best show in the park this year.
After the show I took a stroll down the Frontier Trail, visited Charlie Brown’s cabin, and took a peek at Shoot the Rapids. But, guess who I found sneaking a ride, Tony and Tyler. They are two very lucky people. Then a quick dinner break at the car, and then back to Shoot the Rapids for more pictures.
Yes, I really do love this ride, even though I can’t ride it yet! Then it was onto the Hot Summer Lights midway for a ride on the Iron Dragon and Wildcat. After that, I headed over to the Wicked Twister midway to ride Wicked Twister and Troika.
I waited in line for Disaster Transport up until the top of the stairs when the ride broke down from mechanical reasons.
With the park closing soon, I headed over to see the Starlight Experience for the first time this season. I personally think that adding rope light to some of the signs made it look unprofessional. Also, with the addition of Shoot the Rapids, it opened up a lot of the area, not as dark as last years.
That was it for my day, got plenty of rides in for it being a busy Memorial Day weekend.
