Big Bad Wolf is what started my enthusiast career and after my first ride on it in 2006 I found a new appreciation for coasters, something which before I had little interest in.

Robb, I knew I read a while back that you were frequenting the gym. Just wanted to say you look great!

Can I park my donkey here?

How much do the models cost? I will be going to BGW for the first time this summer and may like to get one.

I think more than anything this is probably the biggest disappointment for me in that ride leaving is that the park now lacks a "decent sized" coaster for the 42" kid to ride.

Both the Wild Mouse and BBW both filled this gap, so I hope it's replacement, or at least a future attraction will take this into consideration.

I guess the kids always have DarKastle!

I just wish they'd bring back the Yip Yip Martians!

Freakin' yes! That takes me way back - best toddler / dad TV going.

Robb, what's that sexy white wristband you're wearing? Quick queue or endless eats? How'd it work out?

It's the unlimited Quick Queue. Works GREAT!

I'd say most of the coasters has between a 30-45 min wait...NOT FOR US! We walked on to everything we rode. Except for Loch Ness Monster. The merge point puts you in line about 5 minutes before the loading station.

So yeah, other than Loch Ness I think we had to wait *maybe* a 2-3 train wait at the most.

I highly reccomend Quick Queue (or any other kind of virtual queue/line skipping system) offered at any park!

^Thanks. That explains the wristband's pure white dazzling hotness. Outstanding! We gave Ultimate Quick Queue a spin at BGT in the midst of spring break. They were definite day savers, getting us through hour to 90 minute lines in 5 to 10 minutes. At $40 per, worth every cent. You can bet I'll sport one of those bad boys when we get back to BGW this summer.

It all started with a donkey

^^ Is it like an express pass where you can get one ride on everything without waiting or is it unlimited for fourty. The one ride thing was worth it because we only did one day at Universal and IOA but I dont think we would have bought one otherwise, but if its unlimited rides for fourty thats awesome.
