WOW!!!  What a difference from opening day.  I was so delighted with the
park yesterday.  I went with two friends.  We had such a great time.
Everything was open except the Typhoon sea coaster!

Ok, we arrived around 2 pm.  Parking lot was pretty empty, but there were
alot of busses there.  I bought my season parking pass at guest relations,
then went into the park.  My friend had to get his season pass processes.
Took less than 3 minutes to do that.  Well, we went over to Two Face, got in
line, waited like 5 minutes (max) and the took our first ride on it.  It was
superb.  I have never been on an invertigo before, but I have been on
several boomerangs.  Yeah it is the same track layout, but it is so much
better.  I could not believe the G's we were pulling on Two Face.  It is so
much better than the Tidal Wave at Trimpers Rides in OCMD.  Well, next we
went on the newly remodeled Wild One.  Once again, I was surprised.  I
thought the ride would not be as fun, but I was wrong.  We sat in the back
seat, and there was so much air-time, especially on the new double down.
The helix was superb!  Smooth as glass too!!   So next we headed over to the
Joker's Jinx.  I was glad to see that the construction in that area was
finished for the time being, and that the bathrooms were open(I had to go!)
So back to the JJ.  We walked right up, and got right on.  We tried the back
seat.  This is the second time I have been on JJ, and I still think that it
is a great coaster.  I don't like being constrained with those ear pads
though.  I don't like thinking that 100 people before me had their ears on
those same ear pads.  But anyway, the ride was great.  I saw the track for
the new coaster behind JJ again!!  Can't wait till next year.  So, next we
watched the Batman Stunt Show.  I didn't like the show at all.  It was kind
of cheesy!  You could actually see the person's hands driving the Batmobile
when Batman was not in there.  But Vicky Vale was HOT!!  It was kind of
funny because Batman tripped down the last few stairs during the show, and I
know that was no stunt!!  We had fun making fun of the show.  So next we
went over to the Sea coaster, but it was closed!(I heard a rumor that it was
hit by lightning)  Oh well!  So we went to Roar!  WOW!!  Still running
great.  One of my favorite coasters!  Next we went over to the mind eraser.
No line, but when we got there, they stopped running the ride for technical
difficulties!  So we went on Renegade Rapids, got soaked, then went back
over to Mind Eraser.  We got on the front seat, and had a great ride.   It
is a little rough, but I still enjoyed it!!   So next we went to the
Rodeo(cow ride).  I was surprisingly fun.  It really whips you around.  You
guys have to try it.  We also went on the sky escaper and the Iron Eagle.
The Iron Eagle is great because you get that feeling of helplessness!  I was
glad to see the Six Flags lighted sign on top of the Iron Eagle!!  So back
over to Jokers Jinx to ride in the front.  My two friends went before me,
then I went.  The front is the best seat on the train.  I rode the yellow
train and the purple train(glad to see both trains running).  So as we were
leaving, there was an employee that we knew from a local bar.  I asked him
about the track behind Joker's Jinx, and he told me straight out that it was
"Superman the ride of steel" the new huge roller coaster  for next year!!
All in all, it was a great day at Six Flags America.  The employees were all
friendly.  The park was very clean.  I would be sure to go on the weekdays
because there is no one there.  All rides were walk on. I was supposed to go
back again today with my cousin to get her pass processed, but it looks like
I'll be going back tomorrow or next week!!  I am so glad that I bought a
season pass to this first class park!
