So I may have an opportunity to go to the park on the first Friday of May but only for about 5 to 6 hours.

Just curious if any of you who are more familiar with this park have a general estimate on if it's possible to hit all the coasters in that time span during that time of year without FL?

This will be my first visit to the park, which has been a long time coming considering the amount of years I've been a CF passholder, and I'm very excited. Any other tips for a first-timer to WOF would also be appreciated!

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

I would be surprised if you couldnt get to all the coasters. Everything has decent capacity except Spinning Dragons, so I would check it's line first, as it is right inside the gate anyway. I would recommend trying both near the front and back of the train on mamba if the line is short.

Do dragons first then lines won't exist for the rest. Ride Mamba 20 times and Timber Wolf in the front row.

Easily. As others have said, if you're there at opening, go straight to Spinning Dragons. If you have a CF Platinum Pass, then 15 minutes before opening they'll allow you past the rope and you can get in line for Spinning Dragons. They do not run their rides early, but you'll be in line and ready to go when the park opens.

If you can't get there at opening, do Spinning Dragons last, since the families with little kids will go home early and at the very end of the day it's a short line.

As for food, Battle Creek BBQ and Chickie's and Pete's are good. Both of those places have a bar too if you're into that, and sometimes they actually staff it.
