Yep, just drive around to the back. If anyone ask's, which they won't just tell them Soak City. I have never had a problem parking in the back. In fact, I haven't even parked in the front for a very long time.

I would do Maverick first, as the day wears on ride Gatekeeper and Raptor. When I was there Sun-Tues the lines at night were about 5min for Raptor and 30min for Gatekeeper. The line moves much faster on Gatekeeper than Maverick IMO.

If you are worried about the heat, Game Day Grille is your spot. They have the "Big" waters unlike everywhere else that has the small plastic cups. Go in, sit at the bar, ask for a water and a menu, act like your going to order something and then leave. That is what I did, worked fine.

Being at any park in this sort of heat BLOWS. Finding places with shade or A/C can be a chore all on its own. My fav two spots are the smoking section right by MF and Red Garter Saloon.

Fresh and new. But still a GIANT IDIOT.

Thanks a lot for the reply, I appreciate it. I do plan on Maverick first, then moving up to the front through the day. Great tip about the water, I hate having to go up multiple times for water because of those tiny plastic cups. Also, we're hitting 7 parks in the next two weeks from Sandusky to San Antonio, so I'll just have to deal with the heat and drink lots of water. Thanks again :-D.

I just want to know the source of this alleged information.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Gatekeeper's restraints are slowly being modified one by one so that the vest does not lock anymore. I'm not sure which ones are already adjusted and which aren't, but it will eventually be all of them.

Happy Thursday!

I've also seen in this thread a couple other users report they got rides on the modified seats, one user actually specified which seat and train he found one in if you want to dig for that post.

Shoot the Rapids needs to meet the big boneyard in the sky. Put something of actual worth there.

^^If the way that's reported is true, that's almost worse than the Texas Giant accident!!!

Do we have any more details on this?

It also confirms my not so irrational fear that I don't like to ride water rides with restraints that I can't get out of on my own.

^It may be a somewhat irrational fear, but it's one that I share and I'd imagine many other enthusiasts do as well.

Obviously waiting for official details on what happened, but doesn't this have an anti rollback? That's a pretty serious thing to fail if these initial reports are indeed accurate.

The thought of being trapped in a restraint upside down is really making me uncomfortable. I'm glad people were able to help and hopefully none of the injuries are dire.
