  1. No. I would go to Tatsu first and hit Twisted Colossus later in the day. Twisted Colossus is a people eater. If its running three trains your looking at a max 40min wait. Tatsu on the other hand, once that queue fills up, it stays filled, and you are looking at a 60-90min wait.
  2. LOL! What a great first impression guests will have when they arrive at the park.
  3. Does anyone know? And speaking of, does anyone want mine? I don't drink soda Yes they have them. You pick them up at Cyber Café anytime now thru 2016. The Unlimited drink bottles are turquoise blue for 2016 and are going to be priced at $22.99.
  4. Has anyone gone to the park to redeem a 2016 Gold Season Dining Pass yet? Did you get your 2016 sports bottle?
  5. For the past two years, yes. The cheapest 1-Day ticket + Parking is the same price as the Gold Season Pass. LOL!
  6. I have a few questions about memberships to Six Flags. Am I reading this correctly?: I get a Gold Season Pass and Gold Meal Season Pass for $13.99 a month for 12 months? ($167.88 total, before fees) Or Is it going to be $5.99 + $13.99 for a total of $19.98 per month? ($239.76 total, before fees) I ask because in the past Six Flags has charged interest on their monthly payment plans and if I buy the passes outright, it comes to a total of $156.98 (before fees) which is substantially less the $19.98 per month price. I just want to make absolutely sure what I'm getting into.
  7. Isn't Accesso/LowQ (Qbot) the provider of the SIx Flags apps? If they are, I imagine the apps will use the same wait time data the Qbots use.
  8. Xcelerator has two trains and can run both of them at the same time. However, for the past year and half the ride has only been running one train with the other in "rehab". I think the days of Xcelerator ever running two trains again are sadly long gone.
  9. Knotts no longer has 3 hour free parking. It is now 1 hour OR 3 hours with a receipt from one of the shops or restaurants.
  10. If you are not willing to wait more than 30 mins for mazes I would suggest getting the Front of Line ticket. Waits range anywhere from 60-120min for each maze.
  11. Yes. My visit last week they were giving away water in the medium sized disposable drink cups to anyone who asked.
  12. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/herocomplex/la-et-hc-disney-new-star-wars-themed-lands-d23-20150815-story.html So it sounds like Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin and ToonTown are staying!
  13. So if you take the CarsLand construction timeline of 3 years from ground breaking to opening, Star Wars Land should be open by 2020-2021. Man, really wish Disney would do things faster, or at least announce stuff after construction starts.
  14. Its a trim, I felt it "grab" the train. Really wish I could have taken a photo of it, but the only way to see it is to ride the ride. However you might be able to see it from the queue.
  15. This showed up on my twitter feed. https://www.facebook.com/jim.young.77377/about?section=overview&pnref=about Apparently this is the person that killed.
  16. Then the park opens itself up to a lawsuit when a person tries to climb that fence and gets caught in the razor wire.
  17. Assigned seating isn't a horrible idea when done correctly (Disney and Universal). It really boggles my mind why parks would implement such an unfriendly policy. I was at the park yesterday, and I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this here, but Apocalypse now has trim brakes on the final turn leading into the brake run. Doesn't affect the ride, but thought it was interesting.
  18. You have a few options: Option 1: Take LA Metro Bus 460 from Disneyland or Knotts to 7th Street Metro Station in Downtown LA. Transfer to the LA Metro Redline Subway to North Hollywood. At North Hollywood Station transfer to Santa Clarita Transit bus 757 to McBean Transit Center. At McBean Transit Center transfer to either Bus 7 or 3 to Six Flags. The above option will ensure you get to Six Flags before opening and also will allow you to stay later than any other public transit option. Option 2: Take Orange County Metrolink train from either: Buena Park, Fullerton, or Anaheim Station to either Newhall Station or Santa Clarita Station. From Newhall Station transfer to bus 1, 2, 4, or 14 to McBean Transit center. At McBean Transit Center transfer to bus 3 or 7 to Six Flags. From Santa Clarita Station transfer to bus 501 to Six Flags. (Weekdays only) With the Metrolink option, the only way you will be able to get to the park before opening is to go during the week. If you do use Metrolink during the weekend, you will not get to the park until at least 1 or 2pm.

  19. All walls were gone. All they had were barricades set up where the walls were. As for season passes, they were visually making sure you had a season pass card, the only problem with that is that all season passes look the same. So without a scanner, there was no way to block the lowere tiers of passes out of the preview. The only time they scanned my card to make sure I was a gold pass holder was in the morning before early entry.
  20. Got 15 rides in today, would have love to have gotten more but 1-train operations happened. The ride is fantastic! Airtime all over the place, love the hill leading into the 'high five" . The racing and dueling aspect of this ride is SOOOOO COOOL! I'm glad I got to experience that aspect of the ride before the ride ops stop caring about syncing trains. Really looking forward to see just how much more intense this ride will get once it starts operating in SFMM 100+ degree summers.
  21. Correct. I know all the advertisements are touting this as a new "ride", which is so incredibly misleading. The only place where the park is actually up front and honest is on the actual attractions web page on the parks website: http://www.universalstudioshollywood.com/attractions/fast-and-furious-supercharged/?view=2
  22. This is correct. Universal demolished the Mummy tunnel. Nothing remains. Supercharged is a 100% new structure.
