It was really quiet about half way down I-Street on Saturday night. It was so bad that the fountains were drowning out the music. As I was walking out right after fireworks ended I realized the volume difference between there and in front of the gate is huge. At least for right now I can only recommend standing between the gate and the Kings Island sign in front of the fountains.
The show just made me wish the fountains had similar lighting and computer controlled nozzles.
Your wife did the right thing. It's hard to watch someone go through that any time I see it, because I'm a product of bullying in high school. All you can really do to hopefully impact that is to talk to the one being bullied, listen, lend an ear, and offer suggestions to get out of that situation. Talking to the aggressors is only going to make her situation worse. She needs the spine to get herself out of that and on to better places.
Exactly what @chugh43 said.
Not to mention that, in my experience, a very large percentage of coaster club "sources" are actually Screamscape, whose sources are very often just enthusiast speculation repackaged as rumor. And every coaster club I've seen (which includes the big ones) has done that on multiple occasions.
