Scream has been rough since the beginning, though the ride has become almost unbearable now. It's crazy how smooth Scream's sister Bizarro is though, not sure what happened there. I dont think it's just a lack of maintenence on MM's part because again the ride started out rough.

35 times in a row, that's pretty awesome.

 

 

it was awesome. normally, I use the single rider each time, but yesterday, they let me stay in my seat which allowed me to ride without interruption.

 

twice, I saw 2 women who almost didn't ride because they were INCREDIBLY terrified. One of them was totally frozen in her seat even though the ride was over. People were leaving their seats but she just sat there with her head down as if someone beat her up.

 

One of the lex employees told me she only rode it once in her life because she is afraid of heights which I found very interesting.

 

The employees were very friendly and enthusiastic about my lex marathon.

Haha the irony of strapping thousands of people into one of the tallest rides in the world daily, yet being afraid of heights.

Medusa up north at SFDK is also buttery smooth. Scream is the only one that's in relatively rough shape.

When we rode Scream a few years ago we thought all of the complaining about it was totally overblown. It's possible that it's a wheel issue though if it's really that bad now. Nitro's been having issues with them and it really feels like riding on a jackhammer when it happens. I'd assume they'll fix it and the ride will be back to normal eventually (I was going to say "soon" but it's Magic Mountain so I went with "eventually").

TC's 4th train (Green) is at the park. They just haven't had to use it yet since they've had 3 trains on it almost every day since it opened.

 

has anyone seen it? i know someone had said that one of the RMC guys said it was there already during the commercial shoot. but you'd think there would at least be one picture.

 

oh, and btw, one of the RMC guys told me Alan would be there for the opening as well, which he wasn't. so...

That's what I heard as well. It's probably in the shop, ready to be swapped in for whichever train heads to rehab first.

I am heading up there Friday for the Honda ERT. By the sounds of it, the whole park is ERT this week. Hopefully, this trend continues.

It usually lasts through this Friday, which is the deadest day of all, then weekend crowds will return come Saturday. After this week the park is only open weekends.

 

I always say it, this year I decided (obviously) that wcb would be better, but next year I'm really gonna do it - I'm going to plan right now to take a trip down to SFMM on the last Friday before weekend operation. I have to experience that at least once in my life.

The mystery of the green train, I can't wait to see what it looks like

 

I'm not psychic or anything, but I bet it is probably going to look like the other TC trains... But green. Just a random guess though.

 

if it's been indoor all this time, maybe the seats are still black.

None of the TC trains are one solid color, it will be interesting to see if it's green and purple, green and blue, or green and orange.

Exactly, I have been on it 10 times and I can't tell you which colors because it was hard to tell lol.

How busy is the park usually during Fright Fest? I'm only interested in the rides, not any of the mazes. I'm considering going either the weekend of October 3 or October 24. Seems like it would probably get busier closer to Halloween, but I'm wondering just how busy. I expect the park will be even more full of annoying teenagers but hopefully they go more for the mazes than the rides. I need to get my first rides on TC. It's a shame that I live as close as I do and I haven't been yet.

Go early in the month and early in the day to avoid crowds during Fright Fest.

I recently hit the park on a Sunday and boy was I surprised how many rides you can get in just as it opens. (I didn't even get there in time to use my Discover card early entry) 10:30-12 I got on 5 rides (unfortunately X2 broke down, lol) If you throw in the SRL I'm sure you can hit 2/3 of the park in ~4 hours (NTM Flash Pass) and beat the crowds I don't go to parks to wait in line, bye!

 

Excited about the new meal plan, jeeez it's almost $20 for a meal at Panda Express
