My first time was the Thanksgiving weekend the year that it had opened. I still lived in Sacramento at the time. My dad had already been there, so he knew where and what to do. It was really fun and some great memories of just him and I in that park.
We did as many rides and attractions as possible. We saw Blast (the show at Hyperion), Superstar Limo and all the gone attractions. It was raining off and on that day, so at one point we are watching Muppets and the part where they stop the show to look for the bunny they ACTUALLY stop the show and the fire alarms came on. Everyone just looked at each other and there was my dad telling everyone that this is not part of the show. We leave the theater and is was pooring!! We took shelter in the 50's dinner set area.
I also remember ridding GRR in the rain- no line and I was already wearing a poncho! I had a blast and I still really like the park to this day.
