I still think, regardless of how safe modern restraint systems are, any additional safety measures are a welcome addition. I know, to enthusiasts we recognize they rarely ever serve a purpose. A lot of the time I don't even use a seat belt. But still, it's a fail safe measure that is good to have, you can never be too safe.

You don't use a seatbelt a lot of times yet it's a good measure to have and you can never be too safe? Well it doesn't work if you don't use it, right? Just sayin' but I do get your point.

As much as I agree that seatbelts are (generally) stupid, I'm pretty sure the one on YOLO saved my life.

 

My first ride on YOLO

 

TL;DR -- The unique design of the lap bar left an enormous gap between it and my actual lap, and I actually felt the seatbelt supporting my weight during the hang time on the loop. It was kind of legitimately scary.

^ wait what? A lose belt can fly around and hit people

Yeah seriously. Whether you need it or not, if you are on a ride with a seat belt, put it on. I've never seen a ride op fail to check mine (Though I have seen them neglect to check unoccupied seats), so I'm surprised you could even ride without it.

The shin pads are the primary thing keeping you restrained on premier rides. If that was down where it was supposed to be, you were fine.

Oh Haha that came out wrong. It's because sometimes I accidentally just sit on the seat belt without noticing. This especially happens on rides with those two-person belts that need you both to hook it up.

Headed to the park tomorrow with my son! Will be there Friday, Saturday, and for a couple hours on Sunday. Praying for light crowds (doubtful on Saturday I know).

 

Anyone else going to be there?

 

 

Yuppers! Flying into burbank from Phoenix tomorrow!

 

This is slightly off topic, but is there an efficient way to get from Burbank airport to Valencia? We were just going to Uber/Taxi there, but if there's another (cheaper) method, I'm willing to do it, as we did not want to rent a car.

A taxi will run you a fortune. As much as you do not want to rent a car, that is the best, and cheapest way. I am not even sure you can catch a taxi to get back from SFMM easily.

It is an easy drive from Burbank...the 5 is right there, and SFMM is off of the 5. Depending on traffic, it is usually a half an hour or so.

 

I am going tomorrow as well. First time going solo. Hoping for light crowds, and knock out 15-20 rides and take off before the fright fest crowds arrive.

Ah yes, I checked online and they have them for about $15. I was hesitant because we weren't planning on going anywhere else except the mountain for the weekend, but seeing as the rental would be about equal to an Uber ride, I think I'm going to rent one.

I will most definitely be there tomorrow.

 

im really glad they've begun fixing that hole at the top. however, so far the design isnt matching up with the original supports. maybe im just seeing things, speaking too soon, or maybe because i have the mind of a visual artist, I dont know.

I still need to get the Yolo, and Lex Luther credits. I'll probably wait until Colossus is finished to visit. But even more importantly, I need to visit Goji house again!

 

I need batman, viper, rev, yolo credits. I could of got the older coasters on my last trip but after Scream I wasn't feeling that good, Plus given how rough I hear viper, Rev are, I'm not sure i'd ever like em.

 

So I assume when TC opens I'll go to it first and then do the counter-clockwise route and end up finishing with Full Throttle. (Oh wow, word filtered.)

Uber or Lyft will be cheaper than renting a car after taxes, fees, and gas. The trip is about $60.

 

 

Now I'm second guessing myself.

 

Also, this may sound like a silly question, but you can get to the park without a car, correct? I mean I think it would be silly to be forced to have a car in order to enter, but when I think about it, I don't recall ever seeing people walking up the road into the park.

quick question, does SFMM use the same 2015 cups that SFDK uses?

 

It's a bright red compared to 2014's bright orange. Other then that they are the same from what I've seen other then color and saying 2014 and 2015 on the front.

 

Yes, the cups are chain wide. They came out with the 2015 cups super early this year! Usually they aren't out until mid-November!

You absolutely do not need a car to enter the park . There's even a little drop off area if you want someone to give you a ride to the park without needing to pay the parking fee

 

And I actually have seen people walk up the road to get to the park lol
