Say I wanted to add a day at Knotts, does anybody know a good cheap hotel between the two parks? I'm thinking I may do this now and it will most likely be Turkey day at SFMM, friday at Knotts and Saturday back and SFMM.

You might want to do SFMM two days in a row, the Thursday/Friday, and Knott's on Saturday. Any Saturday at SFMM is a joke.

 

Of course, this is coming from the idiot who is planning a Saturday Fright Fest visit this year.

The Good Nite Inn, near Knotts Berry Farm is always dirt cheap. In between you are looking at some real sketchy places, or expensive hotels in Downtown.

 

Noted! Thanks

I was just thinking out loud yesterday, this makes more sense. That way I can stay by Knotts Saturday then drive home Sunday.

Just got back from my first trip since '06. It was amazing. Got on every coaster at least once! Longest wait of the day was Batman (one train operation) and S:EFK at around 15-20 minutes max. Got my first rides on Green Lantern, Apocalypse, S:EFK and X2 (rode it as X last time.)

 

Pleasant surprises of the trip belongs to Apocalypse and S:EFK. I knew I was going to like S:EFK but it definitely passed my expectations! The launch was AMAZING and going up the tower backwards in the front row was awesome! The launch seems so much faster than anything I could remember on the old version, solid upgrade SFMM! Im not the biggest woodie fan in the world so I wasnt too pumped for Apocalypse, but it turned out to be 10x better than I imagined! The pacing and transitions were terrific, it never seemed to slow its pace till the brakes! Another great addition to the collection at SFMM!

 

X2 had no audio, but the fire was on. The drop and transition into the first raven turn is ridiculous! Amazing ride! Tatsu was just as good as I remembered it, two words: PRETZEL LOOP! wow. Green Lantern was average IMO! Got 2 spins on my ride but I left the ride unimpressed and my groin area hurt. Noticed rattling on Riddlers and Scream but nothing too crazy. Got my last ride on Deja-Vu, it was way more intense than I remembered.

 

X2- 2 rides - 3-4 train wait.

Tatsu - 1 ride - 10 min wait

Deja-Vu - 1 ride - walk on

Apocalypse - 1 ride - walk on

Jet Stream - 1 ride - walk on

Gold Rusher - 1 ride - walk on

Riddlers - 1 ride - walk on

Green Lantern - 1 ride - 10 min wait

Goliath - 1 ride - walk on

Scream! - 1 ride - walk on

Colossus - 1 ride - walk on

Batman - 1 ride - 15-20 min wait

Wonder Woman Lasso - 1 ride - walk on

Log Jammer - 1 ride - walk on

Revolution - 1 ride - walk on

Viper - 3 rides - walk on

Ninja - 1 ride - walk on

Superman: EFK - 1 ride - 15 min wait

 

Overall it was an amazing trip with little to no waits on all the rides! Employees were very friendly and I barely noticed any gang bangers that normally flood the park when im there! Sundays during "the off-season" are a great time to go! Thanks SFMM.

Visited today second vist to the park. Walked onto pretty much everything, longest wait was 15 minutes for Tatsu. Thanks to the people who posted the touring plans. The rest of our group ended up going on X first and got stuck in 90 minute waits. We walked onto it later in the day. Awesome ride and an awesome day. Both trips to Magic mountain I've expected a bad day and to only get a couple of rides in and both times I've been very impressed with the park. So I guess I'm something of a minority.

^There's actually a lot of people that are happy with the improvements SFMM made (or is currently making). This summer the place looked really nice and didn't have too many hiccups, and the ones that it had weren't the park's fault (ie Tatsu's lift motor). Fright Fest is looking like it's going to be a big success this year as well. Glad you took advantage of everyone's tips and had a great visit.

3 rides on Viper? Still trying to process who'd want to do that. That ride is one of the more painful ones seeing that I'm about 6 feet tall and my shoulders get smashed by the OTSR. Also, my legs and feet are always in a discomforting position leaving my spine unaligned making for one crappy ride.

 

Glad to hear you had a good time and the lines were fairly short.

Not at all. Almost every report I've read from people who haven't gone in 4-5 years is full of high points talking about how much better the park is now compared to their last memory of it. You can easily tell when people haven't gone in 5+ years because they're the only ones who'd talk about SFMM's 'gangbanger problem' or how trashy the park is, or something like that.

Same. I've maxed out at two in the Arrow magic seat though.

It wasn't my idea! My friend wanted to re-ride so I went along with it, I actually avoided the headbanging and had good rides on Viper other then the harnesses putting crazy pressure on my shoulders from being 6'2. Nothing too bad though.

So I'm sitting at home, and have a couple minutes that need to be burned. What better way to spend it then browsing through the TPR park index? Of course, I had a look at the SFMM page, and wanted to add a couple of pictures of my own, that were either missing, needed to be updated, or some nice to haves.

 

Even if larrygator doesn't want to use them, you can never have enough coaster porn, and it's nice to look at them here.

The new Apocalypse sign. There is just the old temporary "cardboard" in the index.

Batman's blue color scheme isn't depicted in the index.

2 Shows this year for Fright Fest. "Dr. Frights CarnEvil" and "Off with your headl". One show is on the out door stage of Golden Bear, called High Sierra Stage. The other show is on the outdoor stage right in front of the DC Universe Arch. No shows will be in the entrance plaza, and no traveling shows on the midway. If you have any more questions they have posted all of the info on their Fright Fest website.
