That's good to hear. I feel like the past 3-4 years on all my visits I've only seen both trains run once. The only other rides in that time frame I recall running one was Blue Hawk early in the season where the second train wasn't even on the track yet and a few days before the RMCing of Cyclone where it would be a walk on with one train. Many of the days Mindbender was at one train it has 20-30 minute waits too.

To the White Water addition: I've never been a water park guy. In fact since 2002 I've spent exactly two days as a guest in a water park (and those were in 2004 and 2006 on high school band trips :lol: ) but I was seriously considering a first visit to WW since 2000 when I thought it was going to be a water coaster. Oh well. Maybe one day I'll feel like going back.

So, here's a question I just realized I forgot to ask: is there a reason why Batman: The Ride would be running when every single other ride in the park is closed due to lightning in the area? It happened on our second day at OG. Every ride was closed, but Batman was running like there was no tomorrow.

Also, does anyone else experience a gray-out on that ride? I did on both the Chicago and the Atlanta one, as did my friend. It's the first time I've ever experienced a gray-out.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Batman does not fear lightning. Batman does not fear anything. Batman IS fear.

Batman will remove your head if you enter his premises without permission.

The only coaster that has ever made me gray out is Intimidator 305. I don't experience gray outs on Batman, but they are still stupidly intense rides. I've ridden three (SFMM, SFGAdv, and SFOG) and they all feel absolutely identical in every way to me.

How far apart?

Effects can change due to your condition.

During recent ERT event I did 2 runs w/in 5 minutes and the 2nd hit me hard. That was a first. But age and heat likely the reason.

The Chicago, SFOG, and SFMM Batman's all make me grey out in the back row if it's warm and I haven't had a ton of water in the day. i305 is the only other ride that knocks me out but that's way more extreme feeling.

Hmmm. Yeah, we were on the back row both at GAm and OG. Also, good point about having enough water on a hot day. I don't think we hydrated ourselves well enough 'cause we got the unlimited refills bottles, so we were drinking a lot of soda (I tried to remember to drink Powerade as much as possible, but even I fell short on hydration).

Powerade is just sugar water, its really not much better than soda.
