  1. I never realized since I've always had a pass, but it seems they actually do this every year. Source: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/disney-647447-california-discounted.html
  2. Disney started offering $150 2 day tickets to SoCal residents today (runs until May 19). I wonder how the crowds will be impacted considering the ongoing Diamond Celebration and the closures.
  3. Yes, downtime caused the crazy fastpass times on Saturday. I know this because I was given a readmission pass (issued from Space) by someone who was leaving the park and giving it away. Every readmission pass is for up to 6 people...
  4. I would make Space Mountain a priority due to its current popularity with the Star Wars overlay, as the fastpasses run out VERY quickly and the standby line can reach two hours.
  5. ^Great coaster. For me, I'd have to say X2 at SFMM, Xcelerator at Knott's, and Space Mountain at Disneyland.
  6. Awesome pictures!!! Got to ride the new Star Tours today, it was awesome! Lately the crowds have taken a nosedive after the late shows... 10 minute Star Tours line at the end of the night (75 for HSM). According to the app the line for HSM hit 110 minutes earlier in the day, yikes.
  7. Anyone know how long standby wait times have been for HSM or Star Tours? Might stop by late tonight to hit up Season of the Force (SotF?).
  8. I was able to ride Hyperspace Mountain twice today, and I have to say it was amazing. It's essentially Ghost Galaxy on steroids, with Star Wars. Which is a really good thing.
  9. Wow. I wonder how often that happens on weekdays (even this time of year)?
  10. No, it's GCI (although this hasn't been officially announced by the park). Also, had a great time at Scary Farm with 805Andrew last night. The best moment was one of the scare actors in Black Magic snatching my water bottle from my hands and running away with it (I got it back of course). Also, one of the soldiers in Infected dropped an f-bomb (quietly to me and one or two others) lol.
  11. So last weekend was my first time at Scary Farm, and I went with JeromyL and x2isawesome. I was really really impressed!!! They really "got me" a few times haha. Paranormal Inc. was simply amazing. Infected was super cool and our group had a lot of fun. Also, the Fright Lane pass is a must. The Hanging was pretty funny. Can't wait till next year! The plan next weekend is to try Horror Night at Universal for the first time...
  12. I find it funny how people who pay for the Premium pass say they aren't going to renew, instead of just dropping down to the Deluxe pass, as if its all or nothing. If having 50 less days to go (during peak times when I wouldn't even want to go anyway because of the crowds!) during a year is such a travesty, good riddance, you're probably not fun to hang out with anyways! That's what the park wants anyways, to ease the crowds. Seriously, it's not the end of the world to save a couple hundred dollars to spend somewhere else...
  13. The guide rail on the left side was recently replaced, and has a screeching sound but is really much quieter compared to the right side, which still has that roaring wind-tunnel sound. I wonder if they will do this to the right side at some point as well.
  14. I was totally bummed out when there was no ERT on Skull Mountain a couple years ago when I was there in '12. Right after my first ride it became my #1 (and has been in my sig as such since). Superb theming and insane airtime (back row)? Yes please. After that, I'd have to go with Phoenix at Knoebels. While Skyrush has the most intense ejector airtime I've experienced, I just found Phoenix's airtime buffet "more fun."
  15. Second best isn't good enough for KD fans. You either beat Intimidator 305 or don't try. Well then I guess they'll go another 6 years without a coaster lol.
  16. ^My main point is that with a no loose article policy, the ride can duel consistently. Anyways, with Revolution already closed, I wonder when we can expect it to open back up? Anyone know if the park has given a more specific time frame than Summer 2016?
  17. Let me rephrase my point, maybe it didn't come across as intended. I said operate 4 trains, as in run 4 trains, not own 4 trains. For TTD and Maverick, there are 6 trains in total. TTD has 6 trains, but does not operate 6 trains at one time, which is what freoflasvegas was suggesting SFMM do (run all 4 trains of their trains at once)...
  18. Are you serious? What major parks (outside of Disney) do you know that operate coasters with 4 trains? That's just not true at all. All that is required is a no loose article policy. As has been already mentioned, the ride duels consistently when loose articles aren't slowing down dispatches. Hopefully what Tim told Magic Monte ends up being the case for 2016 (that they'll possibly implement lockers). What? There are sensors, there is a computer program, and they don't sync them manually.
  19. Yesterday they had some downtime on XC (missed the breakdown) where after a test launch, a mechanic went under the brakes and made some adjustments and the train seemed to slowly go past a few fins, stop for a minute, go through a few more, and this repeated until it was all the way through and back to the station. They then sent another empty train, it came back the station in normal fashion, and we were on the next train. Would what you mentioned (not making it in 11 seconds) be what happened, or something else?
