Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

I actually don't like the idea of leg restraints on X2. Although, yes, there is that one major rough spot at the bottom of the second raven turn, it's not unbearable; especially when you know it's coming. Other than that moment, I can't think of any other portion of the ride where it's uncomfortable to let your legs flail about in the ride. In fact, I think that's a big part of the thrill!

 

On a side note, I've noticed that I can move one leg across the seat so that both are on the same side, and I could, maybe, just maybe, slip out if I really tried. Obviously, I wouldn't try, but this happened to me on the last fly-to-lie before the brakes.

I totally want to go ride the bumper bikes! Bumper Bikes > YOLOcoaster and everything else combined (That is assuming this place is located in CA)

Holy crap, I never knew the place was near me! I guess I better get over there within the next few weeks to get that Vekoma and Ferris Square credit before they remove it!

^What do you mean? Today we had the first measurable rain since like early November. It's been really really dry.

 

In other news, I'm going to get out to the park this Saturday for an update. How crowded (like in terms of lots)do you think Saturday will be. I never go Saturdays because all the Saturdays I've been it's always been Insanely busy.

Last couple Saturdays the crowd gets there early as park does close at 6pm. So there is a early crowd rush but with simple planning by going opposite direction of the crowd Saturday should be a great day with showers off and on per Mark Kriski.

 

As your parking your car make notice if Scream, Lex and SEFK are warming up and then when (walking/taking tram) heading to main gate make notice if Tatsu, X2 and Viper are warming up and use that as a guide as to which way you head first.

 

My guess Saturday wont be crowded based on weather prediction and rain possible in the area.

I get so excited when i see a YOLO update, and then i always see the update to be a pile of dirt moved. But hey, i give credit to the construction workers on YOLO because they have to work in such harsh cold, snowy weather.

Actually, it can/does get below freezing in Valencia.

I was at "The Mountain" today for a really nice day. It's about time it quit raining out here. I recommend riding GoldRusher to get a good view of YOLO. Finally, Goldrusher was open today, but only 1 train. I'm surprised several footers were poured with the lousy weather week we just had, some progress was made since I was there last Sunday!

 

Today wasn't busy at all (1 1/4 parking lots). I was there from open (10:20 with gold pass) to close, and got 42 rides during that period. Only Superman (because of recent rains) and Orient Express were closed. This will probably be my last trip to "The Mountain" for sometime, and I'll miss it. I'm heading back to the east coast tomorrow. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

I think you forgot something: the following

 

Possibly reaching freezing temperatures is not harsh weather, cold nor snowy weather.

We've had a pretty warm winter thus far, actually. It's normal for the temperature to drop into the mid-high 20s overnight and into the morning during the winter months. The worst that usually happens, though, is the morning dew becomes the morning frost/ice. No biggie.

 

However there was that time 2 years ago when it was that cold but then a winter storm came through on top of it and it actually snowed here. You'll all remember Robb's photos of that since the Alveys still lived here at the time.

 

While snow might be rare, at or below freezing temp's in the overnight/morning hours are common. However it still warms up into the 60s during the day. We have nothing to complain about compared to most all points northeast of here.
