Water is free.

obviously, and I get water cups, it's just one of those things where it's like.. just add a few more dollars to the dining pass price if needed and include a drink. make it a true "meal". I don't know and it's no biggie, I don't want to whine too much about it.

 

haha and I love that about the Premature Heart Disease pass description. that cracked me up.

Perhaps they're counting on customers buying drinks at full price to counteract the dining pass discount.

Does SFMM have a helicopter landing pad? Asking for a friend.

"Alex Galvez, a park visitor, who says he saw a medical helicopter landing yards from the park entrance and knew there was an emergency."

 

Helicopters must be able to land near the park entrance per this news article. I would think an open grassy field or clearing would work as long as it as free of people. Security probably secures an area closest to where they need the transport and have pilots land there.

Nah they include a souvineer bottle with the dinning plan. Although I have a bad habit of loosing it.

I was wondering if people would pay $100 to $200 more per year on the pass for lounge access. Build a couple of airport type lounges with AC, couches, Samsung Tabs to sign out and get a free cup of coffee, soft drink, churro and other free snacks from a buffet area. Or $1,000 for a premium pass with meals, lounge access and the best available Flash Pass at the time of your visit possibly with limits to the number of days you can get a Flash Pass.

You can basically get all that right now, you just have to buy them separate.

Gold Season Pass: what is it usually, $120? I'm on a membership so I forget.

Season flash pass is $800. (BTW currently on sale for $399 - that's a hell of a deal!)

Gold Dining Pass: $200

That's only about $1120 for unlimited admission, parking, food, drinks, and flash passes all year.

The Sky Tower normally functions as a pretty nice lounge as it has ice cold air conditioning..too bad it isn't working. There are several places around the park where you can sit down and cool off like the cyber lounge or the YOLOBar. For a super cheap alternative if you arent eating and just want to loiter - the Orient Express is air conditioned.

Good to know! To be honest, when I've ridden these rides in the past, I usually just watch. I'll have to give it more effort next time. I recently rode Den of Lost Thieves at Indiana Beach and that required shooting to animate the props, but the guns really were broken there!

Here are the tips they gave out to us: 1. The further a target is away/the smaller it is, the more points it is worth. 2. Always go for the tokens/coins before enemies, they're worth more. 3. It doesnt matter how many shots you get in on the boss, you want to be the one to land the fatal shot, it's worth a lot more.

 

Interesting, thanks I will aim for the further enemies now and get coins. Do you still do that even though there are enemies coming right in front of you? Ignore the closest enemy and just shoot the far ones?

The park is opened on a random Wednesday, October 12th from 1030-8. Is there something going on that day, or would this be a good day to go? I took advantage of the Flash Sale and need to find a day to go process my pass. Thanks in advance for your help and knowledge.

 

It is not random. It is Yom Kippur, and it will most likely be packed.

Yom Kippur is a Jewish holiday and park can get crowded.

Yeah the park never opens on random weekdays during weekend operation. It's always because of some kind of holiday or reason that they expect high demand for people to want to go to the park that day.

 

X2 and Apocalypse reopened

Wow. I knew X2 was reopening soon but didn't expect Apocalypse. That's good news, I hope to ride it during WCB then since I haven't been able to get a lap on it in about 3 years.

Thanks for the info, I'll avoid that day. I'm guessing it's better to go on a Friday in October?

So, anyone ride apocolypse yet? Good? No good? Somewhere in the middle?

 

Pretty good! I was on one of the last few trains of the night tonight. They definitely did a lot of work on it and it's nowhere near as jackhammery. They especially did a ton of work from the station fly-through to the end of the ride. That part is super smooth now when it used to be the roughest section of the ride. The first part up to the station flythrough is a little shaky but definitely miles better than what it was before it closed. Probably good enough to marathon now!!

I have a friend who was there today and said it was jackhammering. Mind you, it's his first time there. So it may be smoother than before but still not that great.

I should also mention that SFMM is publicly honoring their ride crews now! Over in the TC station they had a banner up that said "Crew of the Month" and some of the ride ops got special shirts for being part of the best crew in the park. I think that's really awesome and maybe that will encourage operations to get better all around the park.

 

Also, shortly after I got in line for TC, the ride stopped operating. But it wasn't because there were any issues with the ride itself. The entire station platform was infested with bees! It was seriously unsafe. It's probably from all the liquids in the souvenir bottles left in the bins and on the station floor. I'm glad they didn't let that issue persist and they stopped the ride for something like that. They were spraying down the area and it wasn't getting any better so they made everyone leave the queue. The ride came back up again about an hour later, and they had all the loose article item bins taped closed and were telling people specific locations to put their loose articles. There were still some bees, but it was much better than before. Even with all this, they were still racing over half the time!

It's still jackhammering a bit in the first half but it's seriously so much better. Not like how it was when it first opened but definitely better than it has been in years. Definitely bearable. And then after the fly through, it doesn't jackhammer at all.
