Talk about a beautiful day today! Early entry for pass holders worked out really well with getting quite a few rides of Leviathan in as well as Drop Tower, at least before Drop Tower had some difficulties before opening.
What a huge difference not riding with a winter coat on! That first drop is just amazing and the speed just never lets up. Such a great ride! The tunnel is definitely a great head chopper and really gives a sense of how fast you're going. If you blink, you'll miss it!
Fast Pass was selling well and was being managed really well. Very smooth and seamless at all the rides ridden today.
For anyone curious as to how lines were early to mid afternoon: Behemoth was just over an hour around 1pm, Backlot was around 1 to 1.5 hours at around 1pm and Windseeker opened at around 4:30pm with a long line and somewhat slow operations. Time Warp and Flight Deck had full queues. Sledge Hammer was being worked on and tested throughout the day. Leviathan was around 1.5 hours at around 3:30pm (See pic below). Not bad considering what a beautiful day it, which sure brought a lot of people out, including a full parking lot.
A really great day overall!
