Trust me, you're better off that way.

Although it wasn't as crowded as last Saturday, there were still a lot of people in the park today. Other than Superman and the Skyway, I don't think anything was more than 20 minutes. Food lines were much better today as well with more windows open. I only waited 10 minutes to get dinner and a few minutes for a snack on the way out of the park.

Operations were really good too. Batman was dispatching trains ridiculously fast, when I was on the lift hill of Nitro there was a Batman train getting to the brake run and by the time the Nitro train got to the final hills, another Batman train was getting to the brake run. Even though Superman only had 2 people checking restraints compared to 4 last week, they were almost running to check the restraints.

This is going back to a discussion from a few weeks ago but I just found out Bizarro did one million riders this year. I just find it funny because Rougarou which has way better operations did not hit one million.

I'm blown away by that to be honest. Rougarou has much better operations and while they lost Early Entry and Halloweekends Fridays I'm still surprised that Bizarro did more riders than Rougarou. I dorked out a little on this but assuming I counted right, Bizarro had 163 operating days between opening day and the end of Fright Fest when it closed for the season while Raougarou only had 133 (I took out Halloweekends Fridays) so I guess that explains it.

Popularity plays a role too but that may be a wash as both rides are sort of in the same boat. They're both moderately popular but rarely have long lines unless the park is really busy and even then the lines don't usually build up until the afternoon so they both send trains with a lot of empty seats.

From what release of ridership numbers are you getting Bizarro did 1M and Rougarou didn't? Sounds crazy since Bizarro is a walk on to 5 to 10 minute wait in the middle of summer. The trains leave half empty most days I have been. Also, Mantis did 925K(official CP release numbers) it's last year and the conversion to Rougarou has increased it's popularity. Let's just say I'm highly highly skeptical.
