Tips for Riding the Coaster

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

On the weekends, go in the morning, when the ride opens. Most people are on the slopes then, and the lines are shorter. On a recent Saturday, we waited less than five minutes, vs. 30 minutes in the late afternoon. . . . Avoid getting behind a gaggle of children, who tend to go slower than teens and adults. On our second ride, six tweeners created a logjam, clearly disappointing the people behind them. . . . Lean into the curves to make them feel faster. Your seat belt will hold you tight.
