I'm going to Hurricane Harbor on Monday, and noticed on the website that with a gold pass there is early entry just like into Magic Mountain. Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how early? Is it the same as Magic Mountain with about 15 minutes?

I'm pretty sure it's 15 minutes also. I'll be there too with some friends!

Hi all!

I am a UK fanatic about to visit the park early august. I remember reading someone post on here in the previous pages that you should wait to see if it is worth buying flash pass when you get there. Would the advice be the same for this time of year or is it pretty much definitely worth buying one early august?

Also, with flash pass can you select rides to wait for whenever you want? For example, if i select to wait in line for tatsu can I select to wait in line for goliath straight after so i only have 10mins to walk from tatsu to goliath and then get straight on goliath? Or do I have to wait to select the next ride to wait in on the device?

And one more question, I want to get in the park as soon as possible to get in x2 with little wait. How long do you think i need to get to park before opening time to be the first in?

Sorry for so many questions - I did look over the last 15 or so pages but didn't find answers to these there. Your answers are much appreciated!

Thanks

If youre going on a Saturday (or event day), or you wont be showing up until late in the day, then buy your flash pass ahead of time (the day before is plenty). Otherwise there's little chance of them selling out.

You can only reserve one ride at a time, but the moment you get your pass scanned in the station, it resets and you can select another ride. If you have a gold or platinum pass your next ride will usually be ready before you even get off the current one.

To get in fast it's usually advisable to be at the entrance about an hour before gates open. If you have a Gold Season Pass or a Discover card, you can get in before everyone else (and then you dont need to get there that early). The first ride you hit should actually be YOLOCoaster, as it's line will probably be long all day. X2's almost always dwindles to nothing by about 4pm (see previous post), so you can wait until then to hit that one.

Thank you both for your responses - great help!

 

At the moment we plan to head straight to YOLOcoaster then the other rides in the following order:

Tatsu, Goliath, Lex Luther, Scream, X2 when the time is right and then from there just fit in any ride really... Does that sound good in terms of order? Also are there any rides that you think I should definitely include that I haven't named? Ninja maybe?

 

Thanks

Thanks! That 15 minutes should help get a head start in Hurricane Harbor as well. I plan on getting through it in a couple hours so I can head into Magic Mountain to finally ride Full Throttle and Superman, and hopefully even more if I have enough time. Maybe we'll run into each other there!

I'd suggest going to YOLOcoaster first (As you said) then going through the park in a counter-clockwise fashion. The back of the park is really dead the first hour or so of any day -- Even a Saturday. Whenever I go I always do YOLOcoaster, Goliath, Lex Luthor, Colossus & Scream (If I feel like riding them) Batman, Green Lantern, (Usually skip this one), Riddlers Revenge, Jet Stream (Again, if I feel like it), Apocolypse (If theres 1 Train and the lines more than an hour, Not worth it).

 

Usually by this point I head back to Johnny Rockets or something and eat, then walk up the Hill of Death by the YOLOcoaster Tunnel Entrance and go to Superman, afterwards I head to Ninja (Again, If im feeling it). Tatsu would probably be next but usually the line is crazy (Tatsu's Line is about the same all day, sadly) so that one is just when you feel like waiting. No matter WHERE you are in the park id go to X2 around 3:30-4ish. By then its pretty dead and you should only wait at max 30 minutes. It stays pretty dead until it starts getting dark.

 

Obviously this fluctuates each time I go, but its a good way to go as you ride a lot of the rides in the back without a wait because nobody is usually back there until 11:30ish.

 

Hope this helps!

Ninja's line has been a bit out of control lately (compared to what it usually is historically), 45 minute + waits and lines into the upper switchbacks have been observed, so if you want to ride it on a busy day and you dont have a flash pass you may want to work it in sooner than later. It's not the most intense coaster in the world obviously, but I think it's the best of the suspended coasters, and it's a terrain hugger which is always good, so I try to ride it at least once per trip. (Same goes for Gold Rusher, but no long line worries there, ever)

^ I know what you mean! I live half way between SFStL and WOF. I went to SF this year for the first time in three years, and I have not been to WOF since 2006. I just cant afford it. It really sucks.

Ok guys, I have a few questions. I'm going to the park on the 23rd, how bad or good do you think the crowds will be on this day? Also, which rides should we go to first now that YOLOcoaster is open.

Check the events page and make sure there arent any large groups going that day, otherwise week days are always good. Your second question you answered yourself.

Thank you again.

 

One more question (I think ). With the flash pass, if it tells you that it is your time to ride on one coaster, do you have a time limit to get to that ride? I was wondering because obviously, ideally you want to put yourself in a line with Q-bot and then wait physically in another line at the same time to make the most of your time.

Nope, you have as much time as you need to get to the ride once it is ready.

So planning a SOCAL trip the week of August 13-20. My question about MM is which day of the week is best during the summer? Does it even matter? Second, I will for sure be getting the Platinum FlashPass and was wondering how they are working that with Full Throttle and X2?
