    Tours: King Da Ka Tour & Nitro Tour

    So this was my first ace event and trip to great adventure and it was awesome. I drove down the night before and got to the park for sign ins. From there i went to to nitro ert and got on the first train out and then something went wrong with the gates im pretty sure so i only got 1 ride in. After nitro i went to get in line for king da ka never been on a launch coaster prior and i loved it. Once i got off of that i went to zumanjaro since it was right there and before this i was not a fan of drop towers bit now i love them but the line takes sooooo long to walk through. Once we got off noticed that toro had a short line so headed over there and got on the back row. Once that was done we got on bizarro then went right to our king da ka tour which @BizarroAj was on to ill have pics up later. In the in field of king da ka there was a destroyed phone. By rge time the tour was over we used our dining pass the food there is so much better to. After we ate then went over to to were the ace lunch was but since we were about 30 mins early i decided to go walk to dark knight and i actually enjoyed it wish sfne was able to build it. Once that was done headed over to the lunch i only had a ice cream though but had a good conversation with aj. After we went to to do namtab and all i have to say is wow i got the back row. Then it was time for my nitro tour im pretty sure @djcyberlegend was on that one to. Once we finished that tour i headed over to get on green lantern and superman and i can ride superman all day i loved that ride but you will never get me on another stand up. So after those two we sat down for a little bit and waited for some people so while we waited i "quickly" went to get a ride on zumanjaro since according to the app it was walk on and it was. So i "quickly" went back to the group i was with and then got on another walk on superman. Once we got off the park was closing but lucky us we still had 2 hours. So for the first hour of the ert we got on run away mine train once and bizarro twice. Now it was time for the toro ert and i managed to get 8 rides in and every single one of them were amazing. It was great not even have to move when the train came back to the station for the next ride. Overall i loved it and im definitely going to try and do it again next year.

    ^ It is, but it's been there since before the ride retired. It's the original top of one of GASM's loops before they were replaced early on by reinforced track.

    After

    Looks and sounds like another successful ROTB. I haven't been to one yet, but every year I hear nothing but great things about it. 8 rides in a row on El Toro simply sounds like heaven! Can't wait to read/see more.
