    I Guess Donkeys Are Okay
  1. Crap, does that mean it's going to be packed all week long ?
  2. Ok, so you guys have talked us into it... we have decided to go in May Anybody have any links so we can read up on trip planning.. where to stay, what's the best order to ride stuff, anything else we should check out while in the area, etc. Also, anybody know when 'physics day' is this year, or how I can find out?
  3. Thanks for all the great info, guys I talked to my dad about (who will be going with me) and we're still not sure. If it's 60 or above and sunny during the day, that would be alright, but it would suck if it was 40 and we're freezing our butts off. seems like it would be gamble. Our next optimal time would be during the 3rd week of August. Better weather, but more crowds.
  4. Do you guys think going on the 18th or 19th would be too soon after opening day, in regards to how crowded it will be? The next weekend would be Memorial Day weekend, which will surely jack up the prices of flights and hotel fares, so I'm thinking the 3rd week in May would be the best time to strike.
  5. Hey guys, I am going to be making a trip to Cedar Point this year, and for various logistical reasons on my end, wanted to try to do it in May. I see on their website that the park opens this season on May 16, 2009. I wanted to ask those of you who live in the area and/or have gone that time of the year a couple of questions: 1. Does anybody know when summer vacation starts in that area? It would be nice to go on a weekday, while all the kids are still in school. 2. What's the weather like that time of year? Being from south Texas, I am concerned that it might be a little chilly. And
  6. I'm sorry, this is probably not the appropriate forum to post this, but I don't know where else to ask I'm getting frequent emails from this site that I would like to unsubscribe to. There appears to be no unsubscribe link in the emails, and I didn't see the option anywhere under preferences? Thanks for your help.
  7. Honestly, I would skip SFMM and go to Cedar Point instead. Even though I've never been to CP myself, it sounds like a much better run park overall, based on what I've read. About the only reason I could imagine going to SFMM instead of CP (assuming you'd have to travel to get to either one) is X, and that's a pretty big reason indeed, but I'm not sure it's worth the tradeoff in the overall quality of the park itself. Then again, Cedar Point might've went to sh*t since the last time I looked into it, so what do I know ?
  8. LMAO, suicide hill .. is that what they call it? That thing was a real b*tch, but we only had to walk up it once, so it's all good. Fortunately, we're both in pretty good shape, so aside from a little fatigue, we still felt good at the end of the night. Plus, the weather is nice compared to Houston/Dallas/Atanta, where it's about 95 degrees and hotter than hell at this time of year. SFMM was a cakewalk by comparison By the time we left, it was dark and the temperature felt like it was around 70, and we had both cooled off.
  9. Hey all, I'm adding my little trip report to this thread, since my dad and I (we're from Texas visiting Cali) were at the park on the same day as the original poster. This was our first time there. I can confirm that Deja Vu was closed, and X was late opening. I can confirm also that X broke down twice while we were in line. However, we rode it in the evening (around 7:30pm), where it sounds like the OP rode it in the morning, so it's possible that it might've broken down more than twice. I know for sure that on one of the breakdowns, the ride actually got stuck on the track. My bigges
  10. Are you sure? According to the web site, it's X and Deja Vu: http://www.sixflags.com/magicMountain/tickets/flashpass.aspx Anyway, thanks for the info!
  11. Hey guys, My dad and I live in Texas, but we're going to be in LA this weekend, so figured we'd hit up SFMM on Monday, since we've never been there. I've got a few questions for the SFMM gurus here: 1. What's the best ride to get on first? I've heard X in the past, but from reading here, sounds like Tatsu is the one slowest lately. 2. From what the original poster stated, did I read right that Colossus is currently running backwards? 3. I tried to buy a flash pass online, but I couldn't select a date prior to like 8/16/07 .. anyone know why that is? Does that mean they've run o
  12. Yes, I think so too. When would be a good time of the year to go to CP? I'm thinking mid-May, like in the middle of the week, while school's still in session
  13. Hello all, My dad and I are big roller coaster fans, though we've never ventured outside of the theme parks in Texas (SF:Astroworld/SF:Texas) and Georgia (where we go to visit family every few years, and usually hit SF:Georgia while there). We also rode a few coasters in Vegas while there in 2002, and went to a now defunct park in Florida called 'Boardwalk and Baseball' in the late 80's. Anyway, it is very likely that our next planned outting to a theme park together next year will probably be his last, because he's getting too old to handle the big coasters. Therefore, we figure we'd
