^Not really. It was because it was getting old itself. And the capacity for it wasn't really that good. But it was soooo popular, they made a mistake taken it out. But in the video, it shows Shockwave in the back, which I found kinda neat.

I was at the park earlier today.

- The markers have disappeared from by Sky Trek Tower and Space Shuttle America.
-Mporium has lost its sign.
-The all you can eat pasta plate is a really good deal, and it tastes good too. It is now my favorite meal food in the park.
-Buccaneer Battle actually had a line.
-It was hot and humid, 80 some degrees with humidity at or above 70%(just checked, 77% now).
-American Eagle was racing with two trains on each side.
-Viper's queue moved quickly thanks to great line management and operations. There was a person at the ramp into the station letting in only a certain number of people. This is a lot better compared to my last visit when the station was packed and confusing, but there was no one in the queue line.
-Dark Knight actually had a line.

I was there tonight too. We got there around 4 and stayed until closing, which we thought was 10. We skipped a majority of the coasters because we didn't want to wait too long, and we were going to see a few of the shows anyway. We did get on Demon, and that was about a 10 min wait.

I didn't know that Demon was on the Q-bot list. I've honestly never used the system before but I knew RB, S:UF and TDK were on the list. I guess it surprised me because I've always waited around 10 min or less for the ride. With the exception of FF, that was a bit longer of a wait.

I am curious to find out how long the lines for all the water rides were? Especially Buccaneer Battle with it's 2,000 rider per hour capacity.

^^ I didn't know that about the Demon (or King Chaos being in the flash pass system) either until a last month. However, I have seen the line on it get long at times, up to 30 minutes the day of the first Coaster After Dark.

I don't believe the Demon is on the Q-Bot list. At least it wasn't two years ago.

I'm headed over Wednesday night, just for a wander. And perhaps a funnel cake sundae. ::lol::

We were there today and Demon is on the list. Although we really didn't need to use the Q-Bot since it was basically a walk-on.

Are there huge crowds during the Coasters After Dark events? I've always wanted to go, but I always seem to forget when they are. Plus they end at 11pm or midnight, and I need my beauty sleep or I'm a little crabby at work the next day. ;)
