Just got home from the park today!

Rides:

 

El Toro - Only running one train. In the morning they wouldn't dispatch until the train was mostly full...But because of the cold it wasn't running up to its usual craziness. The line got very long, very fast.

 

Kingda Ka (2) - Kingda Ka ran two trains. The third was sitting in the other side of the station. The ride ops were fantastic and pushed the trains out like crazy! The ride was also very smooth, both in the front and the back of the train.

 

Rolling Thunder Right - Only the right side was running, but with both trains. In the shed it looked like the other two trains were still not complete. The ride was running very well...Much better than last year.

 

Bizarro - Bizarro was running alll three trains...But double stacking every single time! That being said they only had about ten riders per train.

 

Runaway Mine Train - 2 trains...Fun as usual. The ride ops were also really good and didn't stack at all. But, the fort really could use some TLC.

 

Skull Mtn. (2) - 2 trains. The building was very dark today. But the new ads completely ruin the experience. The station was absolutely covered in them. Again the ride ops here were fantastic, dispatching the train far before the previous one came back.

 

Nitro (2) - 2 trains. Nitro was rattling a lot more than usual. The attendants were also very slow. There was no reason for stacking the trains every single ride.

 

Batman had a lot of downtime throughout the day, and the Cable Cars never opened (due to wind).

yes El Toro must be FULL until it starts to get really warm in the mornings. We thank you for your patience waiting. Trust me, we want you guys on El Toro right away, but due to the weather that we have been having every morning, the bull does not want to co-operate

It's interesting that the Skyway was closed, but Kingda Ka was open. Hmm...

How crowded was sunday? Going this Sunday first thing at 10am. Also does anyone know if we use a bring a friend coupon can they come in with us early or do they have to wait until 10:30 with everyone else?

The cooler weather should keep some people away (right now it is showing a high of 56) but that might not matter much since it's supposed to rain Saturday so you have the possibility of people who were going to go to the park on Saturday now going on Sunday. My guess is that someone using the coupon can't get in for early entry since I don't even think regular (non premium) season passholders can enter early.

Is Kingda Ka using both sides of the station this season or just sticking to the one side? I am not sure if anyone posted information about that on here...

It's the same setup as last year, just one loading area on one side of the station.
