I'll just say my top 3 Great America rides:

1. Batman (outdoors)
2. Vertical Velocity
3. Superman
Imagine going to a movie theater, and they start allowing people in at 12pm to a movie that started at 12pm with maybe a 100 people in line. So many FURIOUS people! Now, imagine going to an amusement park (Great America) where there are 600 people in line for that 12pm movie. I'm NOT saying to ride anything BEFORE 12pm though.
