Maverick multiples

We got 12 laps on Maverick yesterday morning. Seven of them were without getting up. How cool is that? I love that ride. Diana and I got to ride it solo before the rest of the crowd got there, which was pretty cool. The lighter train just crawled into the mid-course, giving us a launch from a near dead stop. That was sweet.

The park was crazy crowded after that. We got some solid mini-golf in after that, which is a surprisingly good deal. Two-for-one with your Platinum pass means eight bucks for 36 holes for both of us.

We also spent some time just sitting on the beach. With the "surf" pounding and a warm sun, it was a nice zen-like moment. It was entirely too crowded to do much else, but the morning was pretty fabulous, and that made it worth it.

From reading your entry (and Linda's), it sounds like the event was a success. Jeanine and I were there for it last year and, if I remember correctly, the park was packed that day as well.

Regardless of how crowded it was yesterday, I'm still jealous of all of you who are able to get a few more rides in this season. I'm out for obvious reasons, but that just gives me something else to look forward to when this is all said and done.

It's unfortunate the park was that busy again. I don't see myself going to BooBuzz again unless it's moved up in the season.

It's not really a function of the time of year as much as it is the weather. October weekends have been like that the last couple of years. If it's unseasonably warm, they get mobbed. If it's just "OK," it's a manageable crowd.

I was on Maverick as well and saw you guys a couple times early in the day before the crowd got too big. Never got a chance to actually catch up to you and say hi.
