Welcome to Thrillnetwork dude. I have not been on TTD yet, but I think it depends on if you'll be coming back soon or not. If this will be your last trip to CP in say 5 years, then I'd say wait it out. If you're returning soon, then I'd wait for the line to die down a bit.
But I don't know if you'd want to turn down a ride on the tallest and fastest coaster, and have that credit for yourself.
