Apollo is still butter smooth and the scenery/location of the ride is one of the best in the park. I think you'll enjoy it as much if not more than you did the last time you visited. I enjoy it more each time I ride it.
Tempesto has no scenery to speak of lol, its just kinda there. And since its not on QQ just ride it early or late like we did. As I mentioned above, we had almost no wait for the front after showing up at the ride 5 minutes before park close.
But yeah like Bill said beer is everywhere. Literally everywhere in this park. BUT the craft beer room in the back of the Festhaus is the place to be for the best beers - they swap them out often it seems so no telling what they'll have in June but here is a sampling from Saturday.

Agreed 100% with this. This last weekend was my fourth visit in the last few years but only my first time that we had to get QQ, and to be honest with being able to look @ the app for wait times, we didn't really need
it but we planned on spending a good chunk of our day... ahem... doing things besides riding, so we didn't want to spend all day in queues. Just budget for it, but definitely do not buy in advance. Just keep in mind if one place in the park (like Guest Relations in the front) is sold out of it, go to another retail location that has it as they give out a certain amount to different spots in the park as we learned Saturday.
