The water park is usually pretty busy. You can get through the park pretty easily, though. They even have a Coasters restaurant like other Cedar Fair parks.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

While Cedar Fair parks will show their new additions for their parks in these next few weeks (besides Mi Ad, hope I'm wrong). I decided to come up with a list that I think would help make this park meet what most of us think it could be. Most of these have been brought up before, so I'm not coming up with anything out of the blue. Honestly 1-4 are interchangeable. I thought about adding something next to Shivering Timbers helix, but hiding any part of the pride of the park can't happen.

1. Replace Hydroblaster for drop capsule slides
2. Planet Snoopy (9 rides)
    a. Coasters: Great Pumpkin Coaster and Woodstock Express
    b. Old: Be-Bop (Peanuts Turnpike), Splashers (Snoopy's Splash Dance),
    c. New: Woodstock Whirlybirds, Linus Launcher, Lucy's Tugboat, Flying Ace Aerial Chase
    d. Relocate: Airplanes ( Snoopy vs Red Baron)
    e. Remove: Elephants, Copters, Motorcycles, Kiddie cars
3. Connect path from Thunderhawk to Shivering Timbers
    a. Zamperla Mini Discovery and Zierer Tower Speed Coaster
4. Sit-down restaurant near Hawk and Rapids
5. Arcade removed for water-park expansion (Bowl Slide)
6. County Fair theme area from Scrambler to Farm
7. Larson Loop next to bumper cars.
8. Dark ride on expanded path near Rapids

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Me and my wife have gone 3 times in the last 2 weeks and the park has been pretty crowded. Luckily the water park has crazy good capacity. They have 3 wave pools, 2 kids areas, and a huge amount of slide towers.

Timbers is running fairly well this year. The blue trains looks awful though. All worn out and paint peeling. Time for some timberliners.

Thunderhawk has one train this is running good, The other train has the usual slc shuffle.

Parking lot has been passing TImbers 2nd hill on many days lately. Around 2 the dry side should clear out as everyone goes to the waterpark. Around 7 the dryside will be slammed again. You should have a good time. Hit Wildcat first since it has been pulling an hour plus wait lately and its getting bouncyier then ever.
As of right now top 25
Maverick...Lightning Run...Fury325...Phantoms Revenge...Shivering Timbers...Montu...:lighting Rod...Afterburn...Mako...Storm Chaser...Goliath SFGAM...Rivine flyer2...Manta...Raging Bull ...American Thunder...Intimidator...Kumba...Millennium Force...Raptor...Voyage...Mine Blower...Renegade...Cheetah Hunt...Mr Freeze
Is that 26?
