Well, goin to work at the mountain till 4. I'll try and ask around and find out more about the 2013 project

 

I somehow doubt whatever info you're given will have any real basis in fact, especially since you appear to be seeking info for the purposes of posting it on the internet. Call it a hunch.

 

Besides, everyone already knows Saggy Boobs: The Ride is coming in 2013. There's even a tagline: "Flash Pass has a whole new meaning!"

Oh ya? You got me all figured out. Well, we'll just see then

Not to be a buzzkill, but if "lights off" rides are anything like they were last year, you're going to be really disappointed.

True. Last year I drove by SFMM on a Sunday night at around 11:00 and all the lift hill lights were lit up. I knew they were supposed to be dark!

Went to the park yesterday and had a blast. Got to the park at 10:30 and the entrance was packed. We waited for about 15 minutes to get our Gold Flash Pass, and we added X2 to it for 7:30pm. We started out at Scream, then made our way to Batman and Riddlers Revenge. It started to get hot, so we took a quick ride on Jet Stream, and noticed Ninja was stuck on it's brakes right above the water ride. By the time we got off, Ninja was fixed and we went and got a ride on that, then went to Apocolypse and Deja Vu (which ran all day without any noticable downtime). We went to Goliath and got a ride in, then took the orient express up to Samurai Summit for two rides on Superman and one ride on Tatsu. After that, we went shopping and walking for a while, then went to our X2 reservation. The line for that ride was well over 2 hours, extending across Baja Bridge. As always, it was an excellent ride, and well worth the 15$ per person. To finish the day, we took the flash pass back and got in line for Green Lantern at about 8:15, and the line was about an hour. That ride surprised me a lot. It really packs a punch for such a short ride, and actually made me cringe on the last dip into the station.

 

All in all, it was a great day. It was absolutely PACKED, and the Flash Pass saved us. The only things we didn't get on were Colossus, Revolution, and Viper, which we easily had plenty of time to ride, but decided to take our time on the other ones, not to mention my sister had a big headache and was already doing a lot of other ones, and those ones in particular really hurt her.

Ok, I'm trying to get a Fright Fest trip planned here and have a couple questions. I have never been to SFMM just to do the Halloween stuff, and thought this is a good year to try.

 

-I can't make it on Sundays (which I would assume are the best days). How are the crowds and wait times for the rides on Fridays and Saturdays? Maybe I'm just completely screwed with crowds either way.

 

-Does the backwards side of Colossus open when Fright Fest starts or is it open all day?

 

-What is the best time to hit X2: Area 19 at night on these days? I'm assuming Fright Fest has different crowd patterns then a typical day in the park.

The crowds will be heavy, parking spaces will fill up rapidly and the dirt lot will be used, after all it is the park's busiest time of the year. Colossus is open all day(at least it was when I visited) and the lines might be long, but the best time to ride X2 is during the night, it just offers a more "unique" experience. Have fun!

...Colossus is open all day(at least it was when I visited)...

I could be wrong, but when I went last year Colossus didn't open until 7pm with the rest of the Fright Fest activities.

I guess we will. Its very doubtful that management would devulge information like that knowing it could be posted on the internet and even if you did find out something, at this point its just rumors and speculation because "I heard it from this person who heard it from that person who says this other person told them that" is not reliable, so you see why its difficult to believe something like that.

I can manipulate the crowd patterns pretty well (plan on getting there before opening as usual) when lot C is full. After that when the overflow lot is full, it gets a little hairy even for the smartest of planners. I plan to hit all the rides during the day, and the Halloween stuff at night (But it sounds like I will have to do Batman, Backwards Colossus, and X2: Area 19 at night. Do the mazes themselves generate lines in order to be able to walk through them? When the mazes open at 7:00, do the lines for the rides die down?

 

Here's my plan. I'll be visiting October 8th (ugh bad day, I know). The park's open 10:30am to 11:00pm. Plan --

 

Revie exit to Tatsu, Deja Vu, Apocalypse, Superman, Riddler's, Green Lantern (may pass), Scream, Colossus (if its open backwards at this time), Goliath. I'll hit these fast paced, and hopefully I won't hit too many people because I'll be there at opening and be moving fast.

 

Then grab a late lunch at Mooseburger, mosey around and do the short lined rides (Revolution, Ninja, Gold Rusher, and Viper) until night, where I'll hit the mazes and the special Fright Fest rides (hopefully I won't have to do Colossus Backwards because of the possibility of it being open during the day). Is there a good time of night to hit X2? Just as it gets dark or nearer to closing? I don't see Batman getting anything longer then 20 minutes, even with the fog.

If it''s anything like SFDK they never do, considering mazes are upcharge events. I never saw more then 35% of SFDK attendance have maze wristbands. However I never been to fright fest at SFMM and am actively trying to attend this year with my friend. But he's said it's looking unlikely he can go due to football referring jobs in High school and peewee leagues, which he'll likely do again next year. If we're going to use the VIP passes I won, then i'm pushing for Fright Fest since the water park is now closed.

 

(Will be, before we get a chance to get to SFMM anyway.)

Is that a Knex model of Flashback in your avatar? That's so cool!

 

BTW the park was DEAD today just like you all said, and in 4 hours I got on Superman, Terminator, Riddlers, Batman, X2, Tatsu and ERT on Deja Vu an hour after the park closed! 4 times and my stomach started to be twisted in knots but it was fun anyway! Also, they're selling 2012 passes now, so you get into the park for the rest of 2011 too, almost 16 months for $62 bucks can't lose. This is the earliest I remember them selling next years passes already. Great day at the park and I can't wait for Lex Luther it's gonna be crazy!

Yeah, Revolution is really not that bad - just hold your head away from the OTSRs around certain curves; overall, it's a fun ride.

 

With Viper, I still really enjoy it. There are some rough spots - the final corkscrews - but if you keep your head against the headrest so it doesn't jostle around, you'll be fine.

 

Unless it's a boomerang or SLC (where there are clones at other parks), I would definitely give everything a shot at least once.
