Also, if Knott's again becomes a part of WCB, you'll have two parks to enjoy,

one after the other, at a great price with awesome stuff to enjoy, ride, and EAT!

I spent a few hours at the park yesterday evening. The park was pretty busy, and most everything had a 30-60 minute wait.

 

Big shout-out to the TC crew. I know I come on here and sing their praises almost every time I visit this park, but last night's operations were the fastest I've ever seen them move. They were pushing people to hurry up and board the train, and were dispatching trains before the last train even hit the 2nd lift hill. When I arrived at the park around 5:00, I didn't see any racing trains. When I rode TC around 8:00, almost every train was racing.

The trains that didn't race were held up by people who, after getting off the train, decided to stand inside the queue to discuss which ride to go to next. Meanwhile, the train was loaded up and ready to dispatch, and one of the ride attendants was trying to push the chatterboxes out the gate. As soon as they were out, the RA literally ran to her station so the train could dispatch.

Meanwhile, every other crew that I encountered was made up of land snails.

Stopped by the park today for a bit after work. Many small news updates:

 

1) Security lines are getting new shade awnings installed. Great plus! Now Disney will officially have the worst security line in all of SoCal.

2) Honda Express/funicular is still closed, but there was a lot of work being done along the tracks. Appeared to be lots of tree clearing.

3) Batman now has video cameras on the ride, and on ride videos available for purchase

4) Crazanity is still a big plie of level dirt, but there is a lot of crew and machinery around it.

5) Scrambler is slowly being reinstalled in a shade of royal blue. Part of the queue covering has also been painted blue.

6) References to The Flash have been installed the old Gotham City facade

7) TC is still the best crew in the park... actually got to race both sides!

 

I have pics on my twitter at Rideguy70.

Honda Express was open both Saturday and Sunday this past weekend, and the few weekends before that. They must just be closing it during

the week?

3) Batman now has video cameras on the ride, and on ride videos available for purchase.

On-ride video cameras on Batman have been on the ride since last summer/fall.

4) Crazanity is still a big plie of level dirt, but there is a lot of crew and machinery around it.

Dont glaze over this. This is amazing..the worst thing about visiting on hot summer days is when you are in line for security and just baking out there before even getting in the park. I saw a photo of it, the entire area is getting covered.

I would assume since the majority of their staff are still in high school and can't work weekdays that they will have smaller rides closed weekdays until schools let out.

I stopped by the park for a couple of hours this afternoon. Helpful Honda Express is open again, but Revolution is still closed.

The park was dead, as is typical during the week, so everything was running one train (two trains, in TC's case) - which is perfectly fine, considering the crowds. In about an hour, I got in quite a few rides, but just barely missed the last train of the day on Riddler, even though I was already halfway through the queue when the park closing announcement came over the loudspeakers. Oh, well.

I thought I heard someone say once it was somewhere in the neighborhood of 100k to rent it out for the day. It might be different now though. If you think about it if you're renting the park on a day they werent open anyway, you have to pay them to open and staff for you, but if you rent the park on a day they were planning to be open, you're blocking paying customers from entering, so maybe you have to pay more to cover that cost. Then again maybe they give you a deal if you're Kylie Jenner and you promise to post it on instagram, 'cause that's pretty good advertising.

The amount varies depending on what you actually want.

 

Parks will gladly sell you anything you want as long as you are willing to pay for it. But you can buy as little as ERT on a ride before or after park hours or as much as the entire park with all you can eat/drink, all you can win on carnival games, etc. included.

^^ Hey JT, was the park closed when she was there? Did they just escourt their group to the front of the lines like a VIP tour? Just curious.

 

she said she rented it out. exactly what that meant, i don't know. they posted a couple clips at night. it did look like it was just their group.

 

they had rented it out in the past for the reality show. then it was during a closed day i believe. that day, i remember them just driving around from ride to ride. lol

 

last night could have just been after they closed, and maybe just a few rides. i have no idea.

I believe that was her more famous sister Kim who was driving from ride to ride in a Suburban. I think in the past when you rented the park out on a closed day you could choose to have X number of rides or pay more for the whole park (kinda like when you do ERT)...but with the park being open 365 days now, if I'm the park I dont see a big savings either way because I have to shut the whole park down to other guests either way.

 

Is it possible to "rent out" DLR? Or is it just so expensive no one does it? I can't imagine what they would have to charge for that. I've never heard of anyone doing it short of Disney themselves when they occasionally shut down early for the premiere of a Disney movie in the park or something.

for fun, how much do you think it costs to rent out magic mountain?

 

IDK... But I now have a new goal in life!!

 

EDIT: Apparently it's a little less than $2 million for the entire day. (Starting price of course) I'm sure time of year and other factors will only increase that price.
