  1. I still mourn the Enterprise that was in the space Green Lantern occupied. Those are starting to become pretty hard to find, and still one of my favorite flats. The only one left in California is at CGA, when SFMM and Knott's both used to have one.
  2. All this retro merchandise looks amazing to me... I'm going to be buying a lot of stuff!
  3. ^^^You don't have to know a thing about the movie to enjoy the ride.
  4. I've been on both Harley Quinn and Tidal Twister at Sea World. Harley was a tad better than I expected, but it still definitely wasn't great (I did have an end seat). Once was more than enough, and I certainly agree with all the criticisms of the ride. Wouldn't miss it a bit if it were gone. Tidal Twister, to me, was moderately enjoyable. Depending on where you sit, there's actually a small pop of air. It reminded me a bit of a Bayern Kurve, which I enjoy. But it was slow and clunky, the train jogs a lot, and the load process took forever.
  5. Got to the park today, and have to say, the two new attractions are pretty great. The new ending of Jurassic World is very impressive. The cove is still somewhat of a lag, but better than before. But the big hit is Secret Life of Pets. While it's no "E" ticket major attraction, it's got to be one of the better "C" ticket dark rides built in a while. Way better than Disney's Pooh or Monsters, Inc. And the queue is super immersive. They did a great job with that one!
  6. I'm very covid cautious, but even the CDC recently said that transmission of covid from a surface is basically non-existent. I figure that's a pretty good reason for them to stop with the cleaning of surfaces. The social distancing is tough, because it depends on so many other people, and people visit amusement parks not to think. But I've generally found if you politely ask people to keep space, they generally will. Keep masking up and get that vaccine, and with most of the queues being outdoors anyway, you'll likely be fine.
  7. I'd imagine they set aside a certain number of tickets for passholders, and a certain number for day ticket purchasers. Otherwise, I could imagine quite easily that large membership demand could nearly lock out any one else possibly hoping to get a 1 day ticket.
  8. There's a lot of different school districts out here, and they all take Spring Break at different times---some before Easter, some after. So yeah, I can imagine there's still quite a few people on Spring Break.
  9. You mean those animatronics that never worked, and just looked completely unnatural with their necks stuck in bizarre angles? With the parking garage and other non-themed structures totally visible? Yeah, I totally miss all that.
  10. Yes, because literally everyone in SoCal has been traveling to those parks during a pandemic. Oh, wait-- Plus, a lot of people (include many here at this board) had serious doubts SFMM could make this work at all, especially as literally the first park in SoCal to open in over a year (even beating Disneyland).
  11. I was also there on Saturday, and I'll add that basically nothing had lines at all for about the first 2 hours of the park opening. My advice is, if possible, get there early (we arrived at 10am for a 10:30 park opening, and was already greeted with a logjam of about 50 cars waiting to get in), and leave early, around 1 or 2pm. Which also allows you to skip having to eat lunch in the park and suffer the food lines. But yeah, if you don't have Flash Pass/Membership FOL passes after about 1pm, you're not going to get on much other than flat rides. And even the line to get a Flash Pass/FO
  12. While I'm not going until tomorrow, I do have Diamond Elite Membership (I kept my payments going the whole time, so it's still active), and I noticed that for my Preferred Parking reservation, the code for it now seems to be tied directly to my pass, when in the past, it was a separate barcode. So this could be something they're working on. I'm not too surprised at the good Covid signage and availability of hand sanitizer everywhere... we got to visit SFDK back in the original brief window when they could open as a zoo back in July 2020, and they were set up the same even by then. They
  13. I could imagine it being like the old Disney Fastpass rules... you can't go earlier than your time, but anytime later is fine. I'm not going until April 3... wanted to give them a couple days to work the kinks out
  14. They just announced they will be opening with rides on April 16. Secret Life of Pets will be open immediately. Likely that Minions, Simpsons, and Special Effects show will not be open, but most of the other attractions should be with queue modifications (like FJ and other rides like Mummy will only use the outdoor queue, and will pulse guests inside).
  15. I always had doubted if those donuts were any good, but I finally got one of the pink ones, and it was surprisingly good. Only catch, it can go stale in a day or two, so don't delay.
