How will the crowd and lines be on the 22nd-24th this month? No special events or anything on those days according to the site. I know CSUN finishes on the 19th I think that's college not LAUSD so should be walk ons?

CSUN doesn't have much of an impact on SFMM's crowds, in my experience. If you go mid-week while LAUSD is still in session, you should be fine.

My family and I will be in the LA area during the end of May and we have two days set aside for parks. One day at Magic Mountain and the next day at Knott's. We're looking at Friday May 26th and Saturday May 27th for either of the two and I am going to assume that Saturday will be the busier day at either of the parks. Would it be better to spend Friday, the less crowded day at Magic Mountain and then the more crowded Saturday at Knott's or vise versa?

I'd definitely spend Friday at Magic Mountain, although both parks will most likely be packed on Saturday. If you're at Magic Mountain right when they open, you should be able to hit everything worth going on by the end of the day. Same with Knott's. If you're not planning to spend an entire day at either park, I'd definitely get a flash pass. I've never used the one at Knott's but I can tell you from personal experience that a platinum pass, although pricey, is DEFINITELY worth it at Magic Mountain on a crowded day. But wait till you're there before you buy one cause you might not need it.

On Knott's website it shows GhostRider is closed now until the 26th and supposed to reopen on the 27th so that might answer your question.

I would also recommend going to SFMM on the 26th and Knott's on the 27th. SFMM just has a lot more rides and if you aren't doing a flash pass, then I would suggest going on the less busier day. Plus GhostRider is down for maintenance through the 26th and you definitely don't want to miss it. Lastly, Knott's will be open to 11pm on the 27th, so even if the park is really crowded, you should have time to hit all the rides.

Awesome, that's great to know! Thanks everyone

 

May 27th is Memorial day weekend so regardless of where you go it will be a wreck. Perhaps normal (non season passholes) are holding off for SFMM until Justice League opens

 

May 27th is also opening day for Six Flags Hurricane Harbor season! While in might not impact SFMM but it will impact the parking and going through the metal detectors.

So its pretty clear Justice League won't be ready for Memorial Day weekend right? I wonder if they will do a gold pass preview like they did for Twisted Colossus. It was fun I got to ride the ride with minimal lines all day.

I took a few rides on refurb'd Apocalypse yesterday; it is definitely smoother and a little bit quieter. It still has the normal roughness you'd expect from a wooden coaster, but it's not a headache-inducer like it was before.

 

To make it better, the park was a ghost town yesterday, so I had the train to myself 2 out of my 3 rides. Head down to the park and give it a try, if you get a chance.

I find it kind of odd that SFMM's water park season starts on the exact same day as Cedar Point's water park season, despite SFMM being in a MUCH warmer climate

I would have thought Hurricane Harbor at Magic Mountain would have a longer operating season (obviously not in the winter months)

It would be nice if a lot of the SoCal water parks stayed open for longer. Many times, it is still crazy hot all the way through October and sometimes even November (our excessive rain & cool weather this year is an exception). Still, Knott's Soak City and I believe Raging Waters LA both open a week before Hurricane Harbor. I suppose if the park saw a need to stay open longer, it would. None of these water parks is new though, so they have all probably found their prime time where it is worth staying open.

A part of it may be that at temps where people in the North are willing to go to Water Parks (say, upper 60's), people in California may find it "too cold." I know when I went out there in February to visit my brother once, and it was "the coldest it'd been all winter", and was in the 50's, I was still at SFMM wearing shorts. While there was a blizzard back in MI. So, advantage me!

Yah I called me ma today and she told me her and my pops were considering heading down to the beach and even in OC 20 minutes away they said the sun was coming in and out of the clouds and there were random winds blowing and it was too cold for them to head that way and sit at a Sunset restaurant that's open air.

 

I imagine that kind of weather, which is familiarly typical in Southern California during these types of months, is what keeps the water parks waiting to open later as they do. Meanwhile in Pheonix, AZ I believe the low volume Family Fun Center style waterslides are now open due to hitting 90-100 Fahrenheit daily.

 

It seems like a goldmine to me to have a March open/ September close major water park out here with *maybe* some decent coasters to add. This place has a great winter, but I think with temps (in the March to September months) 100+ Farenheight, how they are for most people not from around here, it seems it could be quite a place to visit during a pretty decent amount of the year.

The waterparks here in Vegas have been open since mid April or earlier...and we are never warm or hot in April...usually the 70's. So, the parks in SoCal have no excuse not to be open.

 

Unless from a operating expenses and staffing perspective, it's not worth it.
