It all depends on the weather. If it's cold and dreary, low crowds. If the sun comes out, so do the crowds (but far less than a busy summer day). Also, be forewarned that they've been running one train on The Joker for the entire winter. So, even without crowds, you can still end up with a wait (though not an unreasonable one) for that ride.

The only single you'll find at this park is single train operations. Only Medusa and Joker run two trains, but that seems very rare on the latter from the trip reports I've seen and my own visit.

Misinformation. Kong sometimes runs two trains and the rest of the coasters couldn't run two trains if they wanted to. :Pr
Also it just really depends on when you go. During summer months you'd be more likely to see two trains but while school is in there's really no need for the park to be running two trains as the waits are very short even with just one.

There are no single rider lines, but in the past when the park was busy they would sometimes call out for single riders on Superman and Joker. This was moreso in their opening seasons and I haven't been back during the summer since 2016 so I can't speak whether they still do this on busy summer days or not.

I'm glad they do call for singles at least. That doesn't surprise me at Superman since that crew has been top notch in all my visits.

Yeah, to be honest, the trains all work terribly at the park.

New Additions with Batman: The Ride!

I've got some news, everyone. I recently got a monthly passholder news from Discovery Kingdom, and it turns out that there will be a redesign for the DC area of the park. Also, in other news, Batman will be getting a shop!

It’s nice to see an official rebranding of the area, even though it has kinda been the “unofficial” DC-themed area of the park for quite a few years now.

That area of the park is pretty stacked now with the addition of Batman.

Yeah, it is really nice to see Six Flags actually rebranding it. However, one thing I noticed is that it looks like they'll be removing the games near V2, which makes sense because they were definitely hiding the entrance away.

That image is way different than any other promo pictures they have released. The yellow is darker than I'd like and the queue building is not there which I find weird since they have already started building the shop and hopefully what is the entrance. I know its just concept but I'm still a bit worried.
