  1. Wouldn't be surprised to hear an announcement or see construction start on the resorts 2nd parking structure within the next year or two. This hotel purchase seems like a critical piece for that project.
  2. Man Reportedly Kills Himself at Universal Studios http://variety.com/2015/biz/news/man-reportedly-kills-himself-at-universal-studios-1201466176/
  3. Disneyland's Innoventions set to close March 31 http://www.ocregister.com/articles/disneyland-653380-star-attraction.html
  4. Yes, there is a free "park and ride" lot (Fullerton Park and Ride) underneath were the 5 and 91 freeways interchange. Park there and take LA Metro 460 bus to Disneyland. It takes 10mins to get to Disneyland and only cost $1.75 per person each way. Buses run every 15-30 min until 1am every day. You could also go to Fullerton Metrolink/Amtrak train station. Park in the free parking structure and take OCTA bus 543 or 43 to Disneyland. Its $2.00 per person each way and takes 15-25 mins depending on which bus route you take.
  5. New commercial for SuperCharged. http://superbowl.nbcsports.com/post/109713622824/universal-studios-hollywood-fast-furious-ride
  6. I actually thought it was going slow. Isn't Japan's opening sooner? Japans Wizarding World opened this past summer.
  7. I hope whoever takes over as CEO puts a stop to the money pit that is the Blue World Project and start investing in stuff that will actually make people want to visit their parks.
  8. 1. Twisted Colossus. This will be my first RMC coaster and it looks like it has some serious airtime, something SoCal is lacking! Cannot wait! 2. Fast and Furious Super Charged at Universal Studios Hollywood. I like King Kong 360-3D and this looks and sounds like its going to be that, but on steroids, mixing 3-D screens with physical sets.
  9. For those wondering on how to pronounce Rougarou and the history/ legend of the name.
  10. I would LOVE to see Scream removed and Riddlers Revenge converted into a floorless coaster. Riddlers Revenge has a excellent layout that is killed by the stand up trains.
  11. it was even cheaper at most parks. i think as low as $50. but, MM has always had cheap passes. they have always hovered around that price or cheaper. them and universal are the cheapest passes. $80 annual at Costco for Universal. There is a catch with Universal though, the Costco, Buy a Day, and Value passes are loaded with blockout days. Most of the summer and holidays are blocked. None of the Six Flags passes have blockout days.
  12. Sound Stage 28 (Phantom of The Opera Stage) To Be Demolished For More Theme Park Expansion. http://variety.com/2014/artisans/news/universal-to-demolish-phantom-of-the-opera-soundstage-but-preserve-silent-films-set-1201292227/
  13. Agreed. Though the animation only shows three trains, it wouldn't surprise me if the ride has the capability to run five trains.
  14. Look at that air-time filled pre-lift section! It just keeps getting better and better!
  15. Unless I am completely wrong, by the way it was edited, I think you go around the entire ride twice. Has anyone figured out if it's two different sides with separate stations or if you go around twice? The press release wasn't totally clear on that. They said you go through nearly 5,000 feet of track and two lift hills, but wasn't the old ride nearly 5,000 feet of track per side? Based on everything released, it looks like they are combining the two tracks into one.
  16. SFMM is running a Labor Day sale, half off of Gold Season Passes. No minimum number of passes required! https://www.sixflags.com/magicmountain/store/season-pass-flash-sale
  17. This Is going to be a top five coaster for a lot of people. Bravo SFMM!!!! Cannot freaking wait to ride this!!!!!
  18. They have worked on a CCI coaster. One of the first, if not the first, coasters to get some topper track was Tremors at Silverwood theme park in Idaho. I believe that coasters entire turn around is topper track.
  19. Knotts 2015- Dark ride in the KOD building. Finish painting Xcelerator. Add shade to Xcelerator and Sierra Sidewinder queues. 2016- Giga/Hyper Coaster. 2017- Remove Screamin Swing and replace it with a park model Ferris Wheel. Remove the carnival Ferris Wheel in Camp Snoopy and replace it with a children's flat ride. 2018- Completely re-track GhostRider for its 20th anniversary. New flat ride in the Windseeker location. 2019- Remove Rip Tide and Boomerang and replace it with another dark ride.
