For all those attending on the second, I hope you're able to provide a detailed report of the first day!

We're going on Friday, and with young kids of differing heights, we're not sure the best way to snag a ride on Orion. We could hit it first thing, but then we're concerned some of the lower capacity rides for our younger kids like Woodstock Express, Flying Ace, and Stunt Coaster may get longer lines before we can get back to that area. Or head there first for short waits, and hope the line for Orion settles down later in the day for our oldest son.

It will be interesting to see what the ebb and flow of the limited crowds looks like, and how it relates to reduced capacity on the rides.

 

I snagged a spot for 10:30 on 7/2 will be staying in a hotel across the street the night before so plan on being there early to document everything. :D

(Also looks like Great Wolf Lodge is booked solid for the next few days if that is any indicator for what the crowds will be)

My assumption is that the Orion line will be long all day, and that other rides probably won't be too bad because of limited attendance in the park. Could be wrong, but that's my thinking. We have a 10:30 spot also, and we're going to try to ride Orion first thing, and then probably not ride it again that day.

You're probably right but what I'm curious to see is... how long? 45 minutes long? 2 hours long? If it's the former I'll wait until later in the day, and start off at Woodstock, Flying Ace, and Stunt Coaster for our younger kids. At that point they'll probably be ready for The Beast and Mystic Timbers. Ride Orion mid day while my wife and younger kids ride Racer, Adventure Express, The Bat, etc. If it ends up being in the 2 hour range, we'll probably want to head there first thing and then track back to Woodstock and Stunt Coaster. I'll be very curious to read the reports tomorrow evening; not just on Orion, but throughout the park.

Regardless, I'm just excited to go and our kids are just over the moon.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if it's a 1.5-2 hour line most of the day, with limited ride capacity and everyone trying to ride it. But, who knows. I agree, hopefully some people who go tomorrow can post a quick update about wait times.

Steel Vengeance was 4 hours long opening day. So get in that line first thing or make it your very last ride.

True but they also weren't limiting the number of guests in the park. That said, you raise a very good point. I'm now thinking riding first thing, or, maybe we'll take two cars and the oldest and I can hit it closer to park close. But I'll still be watching tomorrow!

Also a 10:30 spot on Friday, and this too is our plan.

10:30 spot on Saturday.  Same plan for us.  We will honestly probably just take some time in the afternoon to just stroll around the park.
