What's your first ride upon arrival at your home park?

Postby larrygator » Thu Dec 29, 2016 10:35 am

Do you head to a ride near the entrance? Your favorite ride? A lower capacity ride? Or do you vary your choice?

Since I usually arrive around opening, I ride El Toro at SFGAdv until it is no longer a walk-on.

Dare Devil Dive at Six Flags Over Georgia due to VR operations. I like the ride despite it get a bad rep here for being forceless.

Justice League at Six Flags St. Louis or American Thunder if Justice League hasn't opened yet.

Have to do Fahrenheit first or I won't want to wait in the never ending, sun scorching line.

Usually my first ride is Goliath. This will change to Joker though when it's open.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

At Valleyfair, I usually go straight to Renegade, but every now and then it'll be Wild Thing. At Nick Universe, it's almost always SpongeBob Rock Bottom Plunge.

If my son is with us Boo Blasters, if he is not we head to Banshee because I really just do not care about Firehawk or Flight of Fear

I love donkeys more than me.

I usually arrive at SFGAdv around early afternoon, so I usually just meander. Lately I've hit up Joker first now that it's just a straight walk back. In the past I usually walked back to Nitro.
