Basically I decided it would be easier to post all my 2010 trip reports in one neat little thread instead of in a bunch of different little threads. Enjoy.

Yesterday I went to Six Flags Great America to meet up with Cameron, Griffin, Father Griffin, Jeremie, Jo, Nathan, Averi, Craig, and Craig's two sons Gage and Casey. It was a great day and I should have taken a lot more pictures but since I didn't I'll just do a lot of talking.
Got to the park around 9:30, went to the flags to find Cameron, Jo and Jeremie where we waited for everyone else to arrive. Went into the park around 10:20. Most of the day was pretty cloudy and it drizzled for about 10 minutes. For the most part waits weren't too bad. Anyway onto the ride reviews:
Rue Le Dodge - We had a few pretty good crashes within our group. While I think the seatbelt are weird, they don't hurt you when you slam into someone *cough*Little Amerricka *cough*
King Chaos - First time on King Chaos. I think it looks scarier then it really is, but it's still an awesome ride and is now my favorite flat in the park.
Batman - Rode in the sixth row. Intense as always but I did bang my head when leaving the second loop, which has never happened before.
East River Crawler - Always a fun ride, but no one was able to find a Schwarzkopf sticker on it
Whirligig - Ride failed to start while we were in line but after about 3-5 minutes it did. Nice little ride
V2 - Got on with Griffin, Cameron and Jeremie. After sitting there for a minute or two and no launch yet, the ride ops called maintenance and got us off the ride. They looked over the control panel, got a ladder, a new part, and put it on the train. Then we heard the "Lost" siren, the train launched and completed the test run fine. We got back on...only for the same thing to happen again. Two more test runs, got back on and got our ride. As usual it was awesome.
Loggers Run - Rode with Jeremie with Nathan and Griffin right behind us. I got pretty wet but dried off quickly.
American Eagle - Rode on red side only. A little rougher than last season but nothing too bad. Saw a glimpse of the Chang track from the exit ramp.
Demon - Rode in the rear. Great airtime down the first drop, no head banging on the loops and very little on the Corkscrews.
Iron Wolf - Rode in the last car. I didn't think it was too bad. Shaky throughout the whole ride, but only banged my head when leaving the loop and entering the corkscrew.
Raging Bull - Rode in the rear, kinda shaky at the bottom for the drops but nothing too bad.
Viper - Running much better than last season. Wasn't at its full airtime ability but still very good.
Chubasco - Rode with Griffin and Father Griffin and spun a lot. As Griffin said I would I felt my throat touching my spine
Triple Play - They really need to get all the restraints to open at the same time. That buzzing noise can get very annoying.
Revolution - Another very fun ride, I like the way the ride ops interact with the riders.
Whizzer - Got on the last train of the day. They really went insane with the Karate Kid ads. Hopefully they'll take them down on 6.11
Giant Drop - Great airtime. While we were in line for Demon it broke down with people at the top. They were up there for about 10 minutes before they were brought down elevator mode. Only one car got stuck.
Fiddlers Fling - I love this ride, good forces.
Orbit - I choose not to ride the painful way as Griffin and Nathan suggested. I'm happy I didn't as I could hear them through out the whole ride and it didn't sound good.
I think thats everything we rode. After the park closed Griffin, Father Griffin, Jo, and myself went to Jersey Mikes for subs. It was delicious. Wisconsin needs one! As I said before I didn't take a lot of pictures but here are the ones I did.
