Hello all,

Going to MM for the first time this Monday. Can someone please tell me a strategy in order to get on all of the coasters (except for the kiddie coasters i.e. Speedy Gonzales)? Also, do they have bins at the coasters or will I need to rent a locker? Thanks!

I'm going today at park opening. Is there a particular order that I should go in or a specific ride plan that I should go with in order to get as much rides as possible?

 

Wear good running shoes. Run the half mile to twisted colossus. Then work your way back

 

I thought SF never really wanted to sell MM? I seem to remember someone in corporate publicly commenting that MM was listed for sale simply because the chain feared no one would be interested in buying the other smaller parks by themselves.

 

Whatever the reason, they won't sell now that their stock is rising.....

You absolutely must pay for a storage unit at X2, and usually at Tatsu (even though there are cubbies built into the station). Paid storage exists at Scream and Riddler's, but as far as I know, they aren't mandatory anymore.

The last Friday before they go to weekend-only operation is the deadest day of the year.

 

Good to know. I would had thought that Tuesday and Wednesday of that week will be less busy than Friday.

 

Are we talking so dead that TC will be a walk-on all day?

We're talking so dead that you can walk on to every ride in the park including TC, X2, and YOLO all day from opening to closing as many times as you want. Buried somewhere in this thread from several years back is a photo TR from that day showing all the midways just completely empty.

It is also a Honda ERT early entry day, with TC and Scream as the coasters. I will be there!

oh how i miss those years long ago when they kept daily operation thru september. usually, only half to two thirds at the very most of the first section of parking lot was used. more people at costco at any given time.

While TC seems to be the likely answer as first coaster, from my experience (and from other people's posts) it seems that TC has not been opening immediately with the park, with delays anywhere from 20 minutes to 2+ hours before it opened. My recommendation (if you're there at opening) is to either go straight to X2 and then on to Tatsu, or Full Throttle and then to TC (and hope that it's open).

 

With any luck, everything will at least operational...unlike this past weekend. #shade

Looks like I'll be able to get to this park this season. I look forward to comparing the coasters to Cedar Point and the rest of my relatively small Amusement park lineup list.

 

I'm just assuming it's going to be slammed at the beginning of October?

if you go on one of the fright fest fridays, during the day it shouldn't be crowded.

That has to do with school calendars changing so much. Most local schools start in mid August now.

I went to the park yesterday for my birthday and rode everything except Batman (I've been on enough time to know I'm not missing much )

I rode TC twice and raced 2/2 on one and 1/2 on the other. I think the park staff in general is making major improvements or I'm just lucky. They seem a lot friendlier and willing interact. I got in line for FT at 8:59 and we were on the last train with guests and they let us ride three times in a row. My only complaint about the day is Tatsu was running one train, I was in the station alone for about 30 minutes and The Riddler still has super slow load times but I guess that's a lost cause at this point. Other than that the lines all moved pretty fast and I didn't see many employees just standing around socializing.

Despite having a Batman clone nearby at Great Adventure, I thought when we visited a few years ago (pre yolocoaster and tc) that besides Tatsu, Apocalypse (which I hear is running like crap now) and maybe Ninja, Batman was the best ride in the park. To each his own I guess.

Sometimes, it seems like the park WANTS Tatsu's line to be an hour long at all times. Maybe just for the sake of crowd control.

Really? Because the only time I've bothered with SFMM's version was at WCB last year and it hurt like the dickens.

I, personally, find Batman to be a very good ride, and is one of the better coasters at SFMM. It can run like a bat out of hell in hot weather, so at least it gives some reason to visit SFMM on those unreasonably hot days, when you suffer from extreme dehydration and intense drowsiness...

Ninja? I'm assuming we have a very different taste in rides? I've only ridden a few suspended coasters in my live and the only one I seemed to enjoy much was Deja Vu (Aside from the horrible downtime )

Weird that people would find Batman painful. I always remember it as one of the smoothest most comfortable rides in the park, as any non-standup B&M usually is in most parks.

 

Hey Ninja is a great ride; it's not the fastest or most thrilling but I still find it fun as suspended coasters are pretty rare and Ninja is probably the best of them. I haven't ridden since the phytocide, however. Ill have to see at WCB if the lack of canopy hurts it...the shade and the terrain are definitely part of its charm.

October 8th is the date I'm looking at. So it's definitely a Friday. I haven't looked into it much, except to see that the park was open.

 

Or if I'm broke from Vegas, I'll be heading to Knotts Berry Farm since I have a Platinum pass. Hopefully that isn't the case though, as I need some Twisted Colossus.

I kind of understand the "batman is rough" argument. The corkscrews are fairly sharp with their direction change, so your body gets pulled very rapidly to the side, which can cause a head bang. The spot on the ride that always gets me is coming out of the final turn into the brakes. The track goes from banked to flat very abruptly, and it always gives me a bit of a jolt.

That early in the month it shouldn't be too bad on a Friday. Fright Fest days tend to have a more dramatic shift from light to heavy crowds too, lighter in the morning than usual and heavier in the afternoon than usual.
