Cant wait to go here. Been 20 years!!
Pantheon looks insane.
I am looking at a Sunday in mid Sept, any idea what crowds are usually like? How much time is needed? If I focus on coasters is it possible to be done by like 5 or 6 PM?

We usually visit on Sundays in the fall and its typically dead. Get there @ opening and head to the back to knock out Invadr first. The B&Ms rarely have waits at all on Sundays in the fall from my experience. The only other wait you might have is Tempesto and probably Pantheon. Have fun!

Awesome! Thanks!
Yeah I'll be in NJ for Labor Day weekish, and since DC is a city you can fly direct to Tallahassee I was thinking of taking taking 2 days (Sat and Sun) in VA to do KD and here, before heading back to FL.
I'm stoked, I was 11 when I last went there and there were just 4 real rides. Beautiful park but we spent alot of time just kind of chilling. I can't wait to see it again, do the rides Ive missed (all look good) and ofc Pantheon :b

If rumours are true, next year's project is another Intamin, this time a giga shuttle. I don't wanna post any links as I think it isn't allowed, but it looks like a crowd pleaser. Enthusiasts will almost certainly prefer Pantheon.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

If that's true, it's nice to see Intamin back in the U.S. again

Yeah, from what I saw it seems like a waste when you have something that would be barely a year old that does the same thing but better.

I mean, did they ever leave? Pantheon, Sandy's Blasting Bronco, Timmy's Half-Pipe Havoc...
