Upon the reaching the line the attendant said that I could not bring my bag into the line. I told her that on previous visits we would leave the bad in the cubbyholes right by the ride. She said that they changed their policy and we now had to use the lockers. There were lockers right by there and they charge $1. The sign said they were only to be used while you are on this ride and were good for only 2 hours. Well there was no line for this ride and we decided to leave our stuff in there for the full 2 hours. We then went on several other rides and coasters before removing our items and then taking the air lift to the other part of the park. I was dying to go on my favorite roller coaster “El Toro”. But first we had to do some family friendly rides. My daughter is too short to go on the big roller coasters and my son was too scared. My husband wanted to go on some of the big coasters so we didn’t know what to do. Anyway we rode the “Runaway Train” coaster, which my kids and husband really enjoyed. After that I hit “El Toro” and was not let down by its twist and turns. I think this is one of the best roller coasters I have ever been on.
Anyway, all and all the trip to Great Adventure was well planned and worked out great. The lines went quickly and we really didn’t even need the speed pass. We only wish the park stayed open a little bit longer so we could have ridden one more time on the “Log Flume”.
