It is absolutely worth getting up for!. I rode it in June at rope drop and was willing to wait 2 hours in line with 6 teenagers at 11 pm that night to ride it again. The wait time was listed at 2 hours but it was really only 1.25 hours. Can't wait to ride it again in November. Keep checking for FP though, we found one for 1:30 and others later on a day that there was previously nothing!
