I also read that Superman is only running 1 side (new forward version), as the restraints were taken off the other train.

That must be a very recent development. I had some family members go on Sunday and they rode both sides of Superman a few times each.

They don't race/launch these together do they?  That would be cool.

Not really, but about a week ago, one side launched, and then my side launched at the other side was coming down, so we passed each other midway.  I was happy with that, figured that was as close as I'd ever get.

Theme Park Review was invited to a media preview of Fright Fest for 2021.   Not so much a preview since Fright Fest opened up last weekend.  Maybe they were still building up staff since  Sewer of Souls was not open last weekend.  We had some food, then heard about the two new scare zones, The Deadzone, and Terror Rising Dark Developments.  As always, the opening of Fright Fest with Unleashed was awesome.  

The park was jam packed.  Every place I've ever seen them park cars, was used.   I almost parked next to the new roller coaster track.  LOL   I'm not sure what they need to do, but with so many people in the park, the scarezones mostly just became selfie zones with every teenager just wanting pictures with the actors.  Not a lot of room for sliders to do their thing.  The scarezones were just packed of people.  Meanwhile, the mazes weren't as crowded.  If you had an express pass, the waits were nearly non existent which was great.  

I assume SFMM is still trying to fill spaces in the mazes and scarezones since actors seemed a bit sparse.  But still some really fun times in both.  Here's some photos...

Sort of related, but their creative director is yet another cool example of how a ‚Äúsummer job‚ÄĚ can so easily turn into a career in this industry. He started his SFMM career as a ride op 20 years ago when I worked there.

If you go on it at night right before the park closes it is amazing. you can barely see the trees below you and it is much more exciting. Tatsu is one amazing ride. a must ride for any coaster fan!

Quick trip the other day.  Nothing spectacular to report on.  I love the return of the forward launch on Superman, but I think that the backward side is the best overall experience.  So glad to see Tatsu back up and running, and it's still a blast.  Apocalypse rides a little bumpy but it's not uncomfortable... feels like one of those vibrating massage chairs but just a lot more aggressive.  Batman still slaps.  TC still not racing.

The ride ops on Twisted Colossus actually were able to make it duel occasionally during midweek, due to very light crowds which allowed for quicker dispatches.  It's a top tier RMC regardless, but the racing aspect just makes it even better.

Agree that Tatsu is a fantastic flyer and that their Batman runs great (hot take: the Batman clones are actually my favorite B&M inverts).

Is there a "correct" way to ride X2?  I can certainly admire its uniqueness, but it seems like something that has to be ridden so defensively to avoid banging your head and legs...

I'm one of those oddballs who actually enjoys X2. However, it is rough and requires some strategy. I always ride the front row, inside seat. In addition, I go to it right away, first thing in the morning. It's smoothest (or, more appropriately, the least rough) at that time. Afterwards, it just gets miserable. Typically, I head straight to X2 and ride it once first thing (maybe twice, if the line is super short). After that, I avoid it for the rest of the day. Hope this helps!

I've been on it three times. Two of them were some of the worst coaster rides that I've ever had in my life because they used to group on it and I got back row, outside seat both times. The last time I sat on the inside in the middle of the train and it was still rough but I could appreciate how weird and cool it was. It's not going to be "smooth" ever but it's easier to enjoy in a middle inside seat.

I've noticed the side that is closest to Viper (in the station) is significantly rougher than the other side, too. There are some points on that side of the track that cause all of those seats to rattle as they pass over them. The other side doesn't have that issue.

Well, I was expecting this from LA. It starts tomorrow 10/7. The selected days are Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays in October. I'm fully vaccinated, but this full time mask requirement is uncalled for! We're going backwards...ūü§¨

COVID-19 Protocol Update ‚Äď Full Vaccination Verification or a NegativeCOVID-19Test (PCR or Antigen) Required on Select Days for All Guests 12+

In accordance with the LA County mandates, effective October 7, guests 12+ will be required to show proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or Antigen) within 72 hours prior to visiting the park on certain designated days, which can be found on the park hours and schedule page. All guests 2+ will also be required to wear a face mask at all times on certain designated days, including while outdoors. Additionally, all visitors 18+ will also be required to show photo identification, effective November 1. On days not affected by the mandate, vaccination or negative test verification will not be required, however, everyone 2+ will be required to wear face masks at all indoor locations regardless of vaccination status. All policies will be adjusted on an as-needed basis to ensure compliance with state and county requirements related to COVID-19.
