Oktoberfest is all about crowds, average year for 16 days is 6.7 Million people, this year they are way above that so far. If you have problems with crowds, it might be not be for you. Keep in mind that it is massive in size, so it does not feel you are squeezed in or anything close like that, but it is busy.
Yeah the crowds are not bad at all, especially mid-week. Even on the busiest Saturday, which we were at the fair during, we only waited 10 minutes or so per ride. If you don't do well with crowds I'd say go to the fair Mon-Thurs and you'll find crowds much less and far more manageable than your typical theme park visit.
I went on it the other day. Strangely I thought I knew about the German fairs pretty well, but never heard of that coaster until I have read about it on tpr. I went on it before the beertents, but it did not matter. I call it the drunk coaster as you feel drunk, it is a unique feeling that I actually liked. Maybe with being at Oktoberfest this year it will catch on as I know a lot of Park Presidents go to Oktoberfest to check on new rides. I would not mind seeing these getting popular in the States
For the past couple of days we've been spending time at my favorite theme park resort in Europe... Europa Park! We did a live stream this morning touring around quite a lot of the park. I apologize for the abrupt end of the live stream as we lost the signal going through the Wodan queue...
Awesome Europa tour, Robb! For me, some of the best part of it, was all those different country side streets. So much detail, as well as wonderful landscaping everywhere. And food! So much international food to enjoy, too. I would spend a few days there, easy. Glad you were able to.
