Gyendolynne and I went to PGA yesterday for a quick trip. We actually stayed the whole day! Ryan (Bush982) said he was flying back up from LA and would be to PGA around 4pm for the parade at 5. We ended up hanging out until the parade. Ryan drives the last float in it.
We rode Top Gun 3 times, Delirium, Drop Zone, Survivor, The Grizzly, Bumper Cars, and Berzerker. It was a great time! Top Gun now has a DVD of the ride similar to Sheikra at Busch Gardens, Tampa (I won't change the name). We didn't wait any longer than 30 minutes for any ride (the longest wait was for Top Gun). It was busy, but the operations were very good.
A little bit about the parade, it is awesome! This is not some ghetto Six Flags parade, this is a terrific parade. It reminded us of the one at Disney's California Adventure. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
Holy cow! This is the wait for the metal detectors.
Luckily they opened a few more. In the middle is a Nickelodeon deal with Sponge Bob.
After we rode Top Gun and Delirium, we headed to Survivor.
At least it is running today.
Waiting patiently doing our stomping.
Maybe we can get them wet.
After all that stomping, and a ride on Drop Zone and Grizzly, it is time for beer and Nachos. Yes Wally, it is a Bud Light!
mmmm, nothing left.
That's me on Demon in the back.
Here's the splash at Whitewater Falls.
We brokedown and rode Berserker.
Whoa! Top Gun flying by for our second ride.
This is where they come out for the Nickelodeon Parade.
Look at all the people lining up.
It reminded us of Disney's California Adventure.
They even had some dead President's there.
Yay! The parade is starting.

This is just so well done.
Dora, I can't believe I know some names.
The star of the show, SpongeBob
Those bubbles are shooting out the back of SpongeBob's float.
Getting near the end.
Just a few more floats.
Look at all the people!
The next float is just as good if not better than the previous one.
^^ I actually found that, when I went to SFGAm just last month, that the Demon crew was hauling ass. Trains were continually being dispatched, and even though the line was out to the cave from the lift (with no switchbacks), it only took about 10 minutes. It was great.
The ride itself was bumpy, but nothing terrible. In fact, it was actually an enjoyable ride, and my non-coaster-freak friend said that it was good, and I had to agree, as it was. Pretty darn good for a ride about 30 years old.
Also adding to the good experience was the fact that the Demon song was playing in the queue, which made it really fun and retro.
