^ The tickets are $49. Isn't that A.C.E. day? I know that's a bad word on this site. This is quite a slap in the face for us TPR folks!!
Coasternut,

I would have loved to have been able to attend WCB. I've always had an awesome time with the TPR gang, but it just wasn't to be this year due to some health issues I was dealing with. It was the first year that I'd missed WCB in, I think, 4 or 5 years now. I am now seriously considering this other event. I don't expect it to be the same as WCB, but I would expect it to at least be better than a "normal" day in the park. If somehow the event is better than WCB was, and I have seen the reports saying WCB at SFMM was a little "off" this year, then I'd take it as the park possibly trying to rectify the situation by providing enthusiasts another opportunity to visit when they're better equipped to show the guests a better time. I don't know if this event will end up working out for me, or not, but I am glad that there's at least the opportunity.

We knew about this 'Enthusiast Day' long ago, we chose not to be part of it and to do our own event, exclusive, for our own members. It's basically the same event as ours, but marketed to the General Public and that other group. Trust me, it will not have the same 'feel' as WCB. If they want to treat this other random assortment of people better, it will just show all of us what the park is really thinking and we can focus more on other parks next year. Again, should I bring up the Knott's day? =) I have two gut feelings about this 'Enthusiast Day':

1. No one shows up, the park learns it's lesson and this event either doesn't exist next year or they tone it WAY down.

2. They market it enough so that tons of GP show up and it's not really a true 'enthusiast day'.

Either way, WCB lives on! :lol:

Don't most parks have multiple "events" days? Knotts is having "Winter Coaster Solace" the very next day, March 18th.

Once again, as long as they don't compare to WCB (which they won't), who cares?

Honestly, who cares? People complained last year that WCB was part of Magic Mountain's "Enthusiast Day", so this year we made sure we did our own event.

Stop complaining.

Be happy we got to do an exclusive TPR event this year.

'Nuff said. Let's move on to discussing something more important about the park.

Thank you.

Hmmmm with the old monorail site to flashbacks old spot that's enough land for an attraction of it's own, then you have Log Jammers old area and the backside of the mountain which is enough for something huge...So could we possibly be looking at a multiple attraction 2013 at the Mountain :p

Hopes Magic Mountain gets a used Roller Skater that 36" kids can ride.

Whatever's coming, at least there's excitement in the anticipation. I'm still hoping for a Maverick / Cheetah Hunt love child. :)

Yes they did wall off flashback's area that's why I'm so Optimistic ;) that maybe more then one ride is coming in 2013, but if this is all for one major coaster I'm cool with that too.
