  1. Hopefully they do enough business that they can get the rides back open. I drive by Desperado all the time and would love to get a chance to ride it again.
  2. Excited to see one of these new Skyline coasters in action and that lighting package looks amazing. I just hope it doesn't suffer the downtime they had with the Skywarp rides.
  3. The park is open for daily operations in June, so I would expect all coasters to be running. I would definitely go on a weekday if that fits into your schedule.
  4. I would put in a plug for staying at the DreamMore Resort when you go. Yes, it's pricey, but you get the Timesaver Fastpass everyday of your visit and you can't beat the convenience. We stayed there for 5 days on our last DW visit and I won't stay anywhere else now.
  5. I think it's safe to assume that all theme parks will be packed during winter break, so I would recommend getting flash pass for your visit.
  6. You can expect it to be packed. According to the crowd calendar, that whole week is in the red: https://www.isitpacked.com/crowd-calendars/six-flags-magic-mountain
  7. This is a good move, there are Build-A-Bear shops at SWO/BGT and they always look busy. My youngest is 13 is she still loves BAB, in fact she got a leopard with an Iron Gwazi shirt on our trip to BGT this summer!
  8. You should be able to get 50% off friend tickets, that option is still listed in my account (although you have to buy them on the website or at the ticket kiosk).
  9. I wonder if they will implement a double-sided locker system like SteVe and TT? When you have separate load and unload areas, you have to have some kind of locker system.
  10. That would be a gamechanger for capacity, really hope that is true.
  11. It seems like all of the Haunts around the country were packed this year. I think a lot of people were still hesitant last year bc of COVID and are making up for it this year. I know that CP and KI have been absolutely slammed this haunt season.
  12. Agreed, these are great flats and will be a welcome addition to the park. Now if they could just get Falcon's Fury operating . . .
  13. The Premier trains on Tigris are pretty tight, so definitely try out the test seat on that one. You should be fine on the rest of the coasters.
  14. Ghostrider has been running like a dream since the re-track, so I'm glad they are being diligent with the maintenance of it.
  15. I've never blacked out on a coaster, but the closest I've come is the first turn on I305 and the final helix on Goliath at SFMM. Both are reported to pull 4.5g, so I definitely grey out a little on those.
  16. Anyone have an update on Falcon's Fury? It was closed when we went this summer and I'm headed back to BGT next month. Really hoping it's open by then as FF is easily my favorite drop tower.
  17. I think Darkoaster will be a great addition to the park. It gives them another family coaster and will also be a ride that can be open in colder temps. My kids are older now, but when they were younger, we were always looking for coasters with 42" or 48" height requirements. BGW will now have 4 major coasters with a 48" height requirement, which will be great for families.
  18. And they don't offer the memberships anymore, so I would hold onto it until Six Flags gets rid of them. I certainly plan on holding onto my membership as it's better and cheaper than the current season pass offerings.
  19. Anyone know if Falcon's Fury is still down? Headed there in a couple of weeks and I'd hate to miss out on riding it.
  20. Agreed, these prolonged downtimes are a killer for the park. They are already down one coaster with the Montezooma refurb, and now another coaster has been down all spring/summer. I have avoided visiting because I've heard that the crowds have been crazy.
  21. That's exactly what I thought when I first saw the layout. Evidently it's going to be more like Wave Breaker at SWSA, so that should differentiate it a bit from Manta, which is an underrated coaster IMO.
  22. Thanks for the update, WW is going up fast! I bet it opens before Aquaman at SFOT, lol!
  23. I wouldn't say that these rides aren't attracting guests, Tumbili had the longest line in the park. Part of that is due to the capacity but it's also new and different. Parks keep building these coasters because they are cheap and it gives them a new coaster to promote, they are the Vekoma Boomerangs of the 2020's. As enthusiasts, we aren't that impressed but it seems like the GP really likes them.
  24. I was at the park last Friday too and it was my first time back in over 10 years. I feel pretty much the same as you regarding the coasters. I liked Pantheon a lot but I think I expected more from it. I also only got 1 ride due to the downtime, so I may have a higher opinion if I got to ride a few more times and really experience it. The B&Ms were running great and are still the stars of the park. Griffon is definitely my favorite dive coaster and Apollo is still a top tier hyper. Alpengeist is so forceful and has such a great layout. Loch Ness is running really well for its age and I still love those interlocking loops. But I have to say, Verbolten was the suprise of the day! It's such a ridiculously fun coaster and the drop track really scared my kids (I kept it a surprise for them). We ended up riding it 4 times since we liked it so much. Overall it was a great visit and the park is just as beautiful and well maintained as I remembered it.
