Hey! Opening day was awesome, along with Diamondback.
Diamondback is undescribable, thats how amazing it was.
PARKING LOT ARRIVAL: Approximately 9:23 AM.
First ride: Diamondback
I got into the park at about 9:30, and cut through the crowds to get my ERT. I got in the line for Diamondback which what they estimated was 5 hours, and it was wrapped around near The Crypt (I finally gave in to call it that). I ended up waiting for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours to ride, let me tell you, it was worth it and a whole bunch more. The time went by fast by the nice people I waited with. I actually had fun waiting. :D I was amazed by the frist drop. I didn't staple myself, but I didn't have too much room, but the airtime was awe-inspiring. By the splashdown, I had a tear in my eye. Maybe it was the sheer speed or maybe it was how awesome the ride was. I couldn't tell.
Second ride: Reptar
My brother arrived with my mom, about the time I got off Diamondback. I decided to take him on Reptar, which was a 30 min wait. I didn't like it much, but he did, and I was happy for him.
Third ride: Advencha Express
I took my brother, who is 48" this summer, on AE, and he loved that too. It was all the way out of the entrance, and the entire queue was SWARMING with bees.
Fourth ride: Flight Deck
This ride, also packed, was pretty fun.
Fifth ride: The Crypt
I was very surprised with this ride. The new area around it looks very cool, and I love it. They used little torch lights in the queue that I think might have been used when it was TR:TR, instead of the ugly red floodlights. The ride broke down twice while in line, and twice not in queue. I got up to the original preshow room, and the big demon things on the other side of the room from the bat were illuminated. I got into the ride, and THEY PLAYED THE DRUMS AND FLUTES SCORE! I was so excited. It sorta felt like the ride system changed, but I'm not sure. It always feels like it changes.
Sixth ride: SDATHC
This line was supposedly 45 minutes, but it took about 20. My brother had tried to ride this 4 times over last summer, and was too scared. I FINALLY got him to ride this time. He loved it.
DEPARTURE TIME: Approximately 5:02 PM.
Here's my on-ride photo from DB. I was screaming "YEAH" with my hands up the whole time. At the crest of the hill, I just let go and enjoyed it.
I am on the outside row on your left. That's my brother screaming next to me. (Not the one who just became 48") In front of me on the left is my friend Danielle and my dad on the other side.
