Top 10 steel: Steel Vengeance, Millennium Force, Maverick, Mako, Incredible Hulk, Banshee, Diamondback, Raptor, SheiKra, Montu
Top 10 wood: Mystic Timbers, Shivering Timbers, Beast, Racer (KI), Viper, American Eagle, Woodstock Express, Blue Streak (CP), Mean Streak (RIP), Wolverine Wildcat

The area would be even better without that eyesore Harley Quinn ride. Sorry it's just a bad ride...

I know more about donkeys than women!

Awesome report. Very cool with the midnight opening event as well!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

This is a trip report for last Saturday. The Joker line was extra long because they were running just one train. It took two hours for Batman to open. I thought the ride was intense and fun, but way too short. With the exception of Monsoon Falls, which had a minimal wait, lines seemed to be on the longer side. Vertical Velocity and Harley Quinn were down all day.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Im kind of excited to try here, even if its mostly for Joker and Batman (I hear these types of spinners are the best)
I know it goes to weekend hours in Sept, is it likely to be crowded?

If SFDK's 2020 addition was to consistently run two trains on Joker, that'd be well worth it. :lol:

I haven't gone since Railblazer opened nearby, but I've always seen Medusa running two trains, even on chilly empty days in December.

Have only been a couple times since Joker opened but I must have lucked out, it always ran two trains.

Thanks for the pic and review. Nice to see the area coming together pretty well! The new Batman ride does look quite good, and props for the extra effort into the theme.
