Sorta impromptu pop over to the park tonight. Was there from 7-9 and it was dead. As we approached from the lot it was a stream of hundreds and hundreds of similarly-dressed school kids all leaving. We were cackling like maniacs at such a delightful sight. Made time for a beverage @ Ale House, a two train wait for row 1 on The Bull and then musical-chair'd a lap on row 17 (how can a wood coaster be this old and still perfectly smooth), stopped for some of Flags' World Famous Fingers & Fries (f*ckin yum) and washed it all down with a free water, followed by a row 9 lap on Nitro (haulin and ballin), then finished up with a row 1 and then row 8 lap on Batman. Fantastic! Gorgeous weather, all rides running in top summer form. Crews were great. Nice little end-of-week stress buster.
Dark Knight coaster is a hidden gem I always look forward too. Yes, it is JUST a wild mouse, but I was pleasantly surprised at the level and quality of theming put in to this (and last, I rode it 2017 - most of the effects appeared to still be working).

No, because its awesome.
I love that I can go there for two hours and not even think about or care about or even really look in the direction of the worlds tallest coaster/drop ride and still have an amazing evening. Not saying I don't like them, just that we're beyond spoiled.
My only regret about last night is not riding Bizarro.
