Hello! Just curious as to what the crowd levels will be the last weekdays of August. The park is open 10:30-6...not very late. How do you think the lines will be? Doing 10 days in CA...5 at DL, 1 at Knotts, 1 at Universal. Six Flags will likely be a weekday but I'm concerned about the shortened hours.

 

Thanks!

That Friday the very last weekday before weekend-only operation (8/28 this year) is typically the deadest day of the entire year. You should be able to walk onto everything all day long. That's why the hours are shortened.

They should install a Tsunami Soaker like at SFDK. Small footprint, actually gets you soaked, and for as simple as it looks, a freaking great time. I'm laughing every time I'm on that ride.

 

yeah I thought tsunami soaker was going to be a joke of a ride, then I finally actully went on it and it was fun. Best way to be drenched at SFDK, even more so then standing on the bridge of moonsoon falls.

People in So Cal hate getting wet on water rides. It's a phenomenon I can't quite explain, but anything beyond a gentle spritzing will actually lead to guest complaints.

lol Alot here in Cali freak out when it rains. Seems like everytime it rains it's breaking news on the news channels and a warning gets sent out of flash floods etc. I remember months ago there was a stage 6 tornado warning...it ended up barely sprinkling.

TC SR line anecdote.

 

On Sunday, 7/19, I went to TC in the afternoon and saw that the stand-by line was about 75 minutes long: the line went all the way back to the sandwich place. Instead of standing by, I went to the SR line. There was a heavyset security guy there and I had to actually ask to get to the SR line. He seemed reluctant but said "yes." I was 8th in line and waited no more than 15 minutes to board the train.

 

Cutting off 60 minutes of waiting was definitely worth it, so I tried to get back in the SR line after riding. I went by the same guy, but he stopped me and said, "can I help you?" I said I wanted to ride alone, but he said the SR line was "full"

 

I've never gone to an amusement park and been told that the line was full before...what gives!?

Ewwwww what an ass, I would've gotten his name and made a complaint. No reason for security to throw their weight (no pun) around

i've seen/read reports of them closing the single rider line from time to time. really don't understand the thinking about that one. i've personally seen them hold part of the single rider line in the front by the coke machines, then let a few at a time down to the line. just another one of those, sfmm wtf, moments.

Speaking of which I saw the new Vacation movie the other night and the new marquee coaster in the movie is an old Arrow Looper (With some extra height and loops thrown in with CGI). I couldnt see well cause they changed the surroundings but I think it might have been Ninja at SFoG. I find it funny when they use old coasters in a movie as their spectacular new coaster.

Like in "Morning Glory" when they used defunct coaster GASM as "The ground breaking rollercoaster that goes 140 mph and 15 loops" or whatever

For what it's worth, Disney and Universal will sometimes temporarily close their Single Rider lines if it gets too backed up- I've personally been turned away from these lines at Indiana Jones and Goofy's Sky School at DLR, and from Jurassic Park and Transformers at USH. But no security guards...just the regular Cast Members/Team Members with something along the lines of, "Sorry, our Single Rider line is temporarily closed. Please try again later." I have also previously worked Splash Mountain at Disneyland, and while it's incredibly rare for Single Rider to close at that particular attraction, we did have to close it a couple of times during my time there due to operational needs (besides just the obvious one- downtimes).
