Current wait times

Recommended Posts

Made the mistake of going on down. MT was over an hour wait, DB was 45 min. Most others were at least 15 min. Food? Best not to talk about that. Tower drinks, freestyle by the train and drinks next to La Rosas were all closed. What did I eat and drink? I had a wrap and tea from Speedway. Didn't bother staying.

And also why I will be there all day Saturday as an associate and not a guest.

I couldn't wait to try MT. I didn't do it on my first time down last week. I'm here solo today and headed straight there- probably waited 25 minutes. And IT. WAS. AWESOME. Walked on Boo Blasters and now heading to AE. Sometimes solo is the way to go.

A million times yes! I love going to the park by myself, because you get the complete freedom to ride what you want and go where you want when you want without the rest of the group dragging you to something you're not in the mood for.

The park looks amazingly vacant for being the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. 

EDIT: I think I may head up.

My sister is at the park right now and said Soak City is currently closed. Anyone know what's going on?

Soak City is open. I just rode Tropical Plunge and ate at Island Smokehouse.

How is it that the parking lot is so full and the park looks like a ghost town?

Maybe 5,000 guests are in line at the only open drink stand?  (According to some recent posts) /jk

I'm still stunned that there were so many cars in the lot and so little in crowds there were in the park.  It was like a paradox.  I was parked in the single digit rows out near the north exit and nearly to the entrance booth (boy do I miss the trams after tonight).  A very pleasant visit all things considered.  Who knew today would be such a good day to visit the park.  

Also got in my first Beast night ride of the year as well as my first Timbers night ride (not going Tuesday now).  I think Mystic Timbers will have a slightly better night ride once the trees grow in around it, but otherwise, it wasn't that great, at least not on Banshee/Beast level of night ride yet IMO.  

The max I waited other than a post-fireworks Beast night ride was about 40 for Timbers.  Nothing above 10/15 minutes beyond that.  Heck, even the food lines were short.  

But seriously though, who had all those cars? :ph34r:

I got at least 6 night rides during Coasterstock, and I'd rank it on the level of Banshee & Beast.

Try it again when it's completely dark, ideally with fog (natural or fog effects) in the area.

I'd say it was a combination of few busses in the bus lot, Soak City drawing crowds away, and full staffing levels. It was a pretty good day to visit; I definitely expected longer waits on a holiday weekend.

I've heard of cross-threading, but cross-foruming? :)

(It was plenty warm at KI, even for non-polar-bears.)

80F and full sun is my normal cutoff for aquatics but it is so dang humid right now I imagine it makes a big difference. It's 65 right now and I am warm.   Ryan however is cold until it gets near 90, he has no body fat.  Seriously.

So, per tradition, our church youth group is here for Memorial Day. We've been waiting 30 min. so far for MT, and we are under the small sheds outside it. It's hot and pretty crowded today. Anyone else venturing out? 1323839d1a6030a26e1d028874c62cec.jpg

As expected, they are VERY crowded today. Main park parking is nearly overflowing into normal Soak City parking. Lines to get through parking, lines to get through security. I didn't see any ride times, but even kiddie land has lines.

 

Soak City had some slides closed for maintenance, the two tubes rides in the back. The little kid splash area is closed as well, the one with the canoe looking boat. I didn't see any open seats at the wave pools.

I'll be heading to the park soon for a short visit, mostly for The 90's show (and I might sneak in a little Cirque in between shows) and I'll probably ride The Bat. B)

Mystic Timbers/new coaster. A number of schools ending before Memorial Day this year (though there are still some in session). Beautiful, non-rainy weather week. I wonder what the lines are like at Soak City this week? With it only being in the 70's, and low 70's in early afternoon, it may be on the cool side of attracting folks away from the dry side of the park.

Another seemingly busy mid-week day. 35-45 for Beast already. Hopefully folks will head over to Soak City soon. :-)

Vortex was a 1-2 train wait, though. That was my first ride on that in a couple of years. It's still rough and unpopular with most of my gang.

So far at Dollywood, Blazing Fury and Wild Eagle are only five minutes, and now I have waited ten minutes out of an expected 20-minute wait for FireChaser Express.

Lightning Rod is listed as Closed for the Day. :( 

And one note I need to add: Wild Eagle is AMAZING in the back row!!

I saw a post on Reddit that LR has been down for a solid 2 weeks.

FireChaser Express and Mystery Mine are the only rides with longer waits (20 and 30 minutes, respectively). Thunderhead is a walk on.

I had to upgrade the app today since the last time I was here...Do wait times no longer appear on the KI app? I see the list of rides, and a message that wait times have been updated...but no times are listed.

I think they are working on that. Tony at CP made mention about it for CP on twitter. Maybe @DonKI can give us an update?
