Ride Wait Times 2019 Season

Recommended Posts

Looks pretty busy today. Praise be to the Fastpass!

Can't seem to find the DB thread, but it was closed for a bit early in the morning. After riding MT and Beast it did seem to be running. Funny I saw them testing empty trains as I rode The Beast, so the whole time I was distracted hoping it'd open ha ha. Rode it back-to-back when I saw that. Both times since I'm a perpetual single rider I/the guy I shared the row with were asked if we minded. Can't recall that happening too often this season.

The only lengthy wait I had with FP was on Delirium. I rode it right when it opened at 10 (so maybe the 2nd or 3rd train) but came back around 1 and FP was backed up pretty far. From where I was standing it almost seemed like it would've been quicker as GP, but that's because they were looping in their own maze. All the 'big boy' coasters had pretty large lines. Probably the longest line I've ever seen for Banshee since I started going this season. Up until today I wasn't sure if season-long FP was worth it. Maybe not before July, but if today is anything like it'll be until Labor Day... yeah I'm glad I went all in.

Does anyone have an inkling on how busy Tuesday, July 2, will be?  Was thinking of going but not sure how busy it would be.  With so many people on vacation/shutdown, this week gets a little busy.

The week of the 4th isn't as heavy as one would believe.  I've gone to KI on the 4th, and have gone to HP a few days before the 4th, and both were pleasant visits.

Who knows about this year, but last July 4 was sleepy. Barely a line. And dry.

Oh really? May have to reconsider my July 4th plans I always just assumed it would be slammed as hell.

Been going nearly every weekend since the park opened (think I only missed opening due to the weather) but may change that up and go on the 4th going by the current discussion. Busy or not never really influences me, but I got the day off work so why not?

Two things:

1) I was not at the park last year, but I watched the webcams like a hawk out of curiosity to plan for this year.  Diamondback was basically a walk-on until at least 1-2pm as I recall. I think crowds increased as the afternoon and evening wore on, but nothing crazy.

2) I have no idea what will happen this year.  (Although I'm guessing based on the forecast and the holiday that it won't be busy early in the morning. But that's just a total guess!)

We're going! We won't stay till fireworks, probably leave around 2 or 3pm, but we'll be there hoping to get many rides in over the course of 4-6 hours.

I'd also like to take a trip out there but the wife has other plans for us this year. I really hope it's a great day for you though! I'd be prepared for it to possibly be busy just because the park has really been slammed lately.

Not at the park, but via the wbecams, Diamondback looks like a 15-20 minute wait. So it probably isn't too packed, unless everyone has gone to Soak City.

App puts most things around 15 - 25 and Diamondback does look around 20. Soak City did look crowded and the park feels busy overall although the lines don't look too bad atm.

We were there earlier. DB and MT were virtual walk-ons until 11:30-12pm. Webcams look busier now for sure, but not bad!

Just got off Mystic Timbers. Took about 30 minutes to get on. Hoping crowds die down as we get closer to night time.

Park today was busy, but not bad. 

DB was 12 min wait

Votex walk on 

FOF was 35 min wait

MT was 5 min wait 

Banshee walk on

Soak City wave pools were packed and the tube slides had long wait, but all other water slides we only waited around 5 min each

Kinda but mostly waterpark apparently. Mystic was 20 minutes. Now about 2 ride...BEAST!

Update: No! Beast is down!!! 

Update 2: Beast back!

Update 3: But now DB is down. Beast was already 20-30 minutes when I got off...I waited 1 cycle.

Park crowded today? I was thinking about heading there around 4:00. I hope the rain scared most of the people away.

How bad do you think the crowds will be tonight, considering there is a heat wave moving in?

Extreme heat waves are typically a good time to visit the park without long lines, as long as you stay hydrated and are careful not to over-exert yourself.

The longest line at the park tomorrow will probably be White Water Canyon.

Double post, but it's a new day so I'm gonna roll with it lol 

Park very crowded but most people are in line for FOF or water rides. Banshee had 5 min wait. 

Update:

7:40 now and it is even more crowded. ET had a 10 min wait
