  1. ^From just two events? And it's not like there's really all that much of an alternative. Six Flags isn't exactly known for their food, so I don't think a food event is in their cards. In any case, I do think one key difference is this is a daytime event. Even though I'm not a car person, it'll just be nice to see the park in daylight. Oh, and I did get my email for members, lol
  2. A saw an email from a passholder who did already pay, and they were told they'll be able to redeem 2 free park passes once the park reopens. Also, when I looked, it seems they also lowered the price. It's now only $49 per car, as long as you have 4 people or less in the car. If you have more than 4, then the price does go up.
  3. I'm so not a car show person either... but I do definitely think there's an audience for this. Like, whenever I do the Universal Studios Tour, one of the areas that gets the most attention for pictures is the part where they show cars from movies. People eat it up, for reasons beyond me. Also, keep in mind that West Coast Customs is SoCal based.... their headquarters are right in Burbank. So there's likely a stronger fan base for it here. Which is probably a big reason this wouldn't work so well at any other SF park. While it's not an event I'm really interested in, and probably
  4. Yup. Most SoCal Holiday Drive Thru events are $60-$100 per car. Stranger Things Drive Thru? About $130-$200 per car. The new Drive Thru Electric Mile EDM and light experience? $80-$140 per car. Another newly announced Candy Themed Drive Thru called "Sugar Rush" (seriously... I wish I could make this stuff up)... tickets start at $75 per car. That $20 a person they were charging for HitP was a relative bargain for this area (unless you had more than four people in a car, I suppose). It was way cheaper that most of our comparative Drive Thru events. And I'd estimate the SFMM Dr
  5. I didn't think it was. I know some recent drone footage showed some of the roof being removed, but I thought it was more for repairs. I mean, their app is really unreliable, and probably even more so now since it's basically useless until the park reopens. Even in the off chance it is being removed, I think the ride not appearing on the app is incidental.
  6. I think it's being overly optimistic, given all the problems the vaccine rollout in CA has had.
  7. Yup, right where Hurricane Harbor is now. There also used to be the Mountain Express right at the front of the park as well, a Schwatzkopf Wildcat. Loved it as a kid in the late 70's.
  8. ^Same. Didn't that park close long before the Chaos even came out?
  9. While I haven't been on it in a while, Canyon Blaster really is a pretty great Arrow ride. Hopefully it's not too rough by now. I'm curious to know how many Chaos rides do still remain in the US. Does Adventuredome still have an Inverter?
  10. If I recall correctly, the OC Board of Education wanted all the students to return to school as normal. Even months and months into the pandemic, when it was pretty clear it wasn't really a safe option. Lots in OC government do not exactly have a great track record here. Knott's and Disney do better about enforcement, as it's private property and they actually (well, Knott's more than Disney) enforce the rules. Go to a mall down the street and you'd likely see a fair share with improperly worn (below nose) or maskless.
  11. My guess is summer the earliest. While the vaccine is slowly being rolled out, the new cases of Covid in CA are insanely high. LA County alone has over 10 million people, which is more than all but ten states in the US. It's almost equal to the entire state of North Carolina. California is nearly12% of the entire population of the US. Severe outbreaks here affect a lot of people and can spread really fast because of our extreme population density. I'd gamble that most people in CA at least know of a few people that have been diagnosed. I can think of 3 people right away that ha
  12. We went in July of this year when the park just had the zoo portion open, and we noted that VooDoo was still standing there, and that there was still no visible progress on the spinning mouse. Didn't really look at the theater area at all, not a real priority for me.
  13. It goes up the later in the year you go. They announced a while ago that it'll go up to $30 by the end of the run.
  14. I went. You have to make the reservation at the website first. When you get there, they scan your reservation, as well as scan any other passholders/members that may be in the car as well. This all happens at the parking gate, which is why that can back up a lot. It took us less than 10 minutes, but we also had one of the earliest reservation times. I've heard the line to check in can be anywhere from 20-40 minutes, so plan ahead just in case. No bathrooms are open in the park, but there are a few portapotties before and after the main drive (the first in the RV parking area/Dog Hous
  15. Despite the few who are complaining about the "high" price, it seems to be the cheapest option for a holiday drive through in SoCal by far... and based on what I'm seeing from many people on twitter, I haven't seen one person who hasn't liked it yet. It's been getting rave reviews. The only issue I've heard at all is sometimes the line to get in gets a bit clogged, because people don't understand how reservations work, or that non-passholders/members in the same car as a member/passholder still have to pay. But as for the event itself, nothing but good things.
