Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

How crowded do you guys think the park will be this Sunday? I'm planning on heading up and want to know if I should be prepared for a lot of people, and whether or not I'll be able to hit all the coasters at least one time each.

Spring break is starting, but SFMM's Spring Break promotional event doesn't start until the following week:

 

Spring Break presented by WONKA® NERDS® Seasonal 3/31 - 4/15

 

So it will be busy, but not as busy as the the weeks when they are doing their Spring Break stuff. I will not be "empty" if that's what you're looking for.

Bummer, that hits about the time that myself and some of my friends were thinking of going (during our Spring Break). Plus, we might be forced to go on a weekend. Is Sunday still the best option between Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, the 13, 14, and 15?

April 1st will be "April Stooge Day" at Magic Mountain, and the first 500 people to show up dressed as a stooge will get 1 hour of morning ERT on Colossus and Scream. The first TEN people to show up will get a front-of-the-line pass for an unnamed ride for that whole day. I'll be one of those first ten people.

 

 

500 people + ERT + 2 rides + SFMM ops = LONG lines.

 

I certainly wouldn't call that ERT. But still, it does sound fun, and I'm glad to see contests like that.

^Yea, It probably won't be that much of an ERT session. I'm mainly interested in being one of the first 10 people for that front-of-the-line-pass (one would hope it's for X2 or Tatsu). I also forgot to mention that all 500 people get a ticket to see the movie, which is nice. Hopefully the park is geting some decent revenue from this ad campaign.

I don't think that this possibility has been mentioned, but during Roller Coaster Enthusiast Day on Saturday, I talked to a "foreman" (the ride ops with ties) that I've known for a few months now who says that from what he understands, the main reason whatever modifications were made to the Green Lantern cars (he doesn't know what modifications as he's of course not a ride mechanic) were made in most part because of how often the cars would come back "incorrectly" into the station, which would cause delays, especially with it happening so often as it was.

Colossus and Scream? Really this isn't going to work. Here is why:

 

Colossus=675 per hour

Scream (with SFMM ops) 800 per hour

500 people divided by 1475 people equals about 34 minutes, or 17 minutes for each coaster.

 

Even on crowded days, you can still ride each of these coasters with less than a 17 minute wait.

 

It might be a fun event, though, to have an ERT session with everyone dressed up.

 

EDIT: Major (and quite obvious) math error in this post. However, I think the point still holds. Besides, it is one of those events that is more for the 'fun' than it is for getting in quick rides.

Know what I just thought would be awesome? What if they had the worlds tallest loop from Full Throttle wrap around the guest path directly above the metro tunnel? You would have the ride go through the tunnel, go up and around the loop, end the loop going back into the tunnel and on the other side of the hill. This way you could have people standing on the path watching upside down trains zoom by overhead!

My post from page #2320...

 

Thinking it will launch through the tunnel, loop over it and the mountain, and continue on with maybe 10-12 inversions total.

 

Same idea except I was not expecting it to go through the tunnel twice and also now maybe not that many inversions.

^Not any worse than a summer weekday. Which means, if you get there before the 10:30 opening, you should be done with about everything by around 6 PM. I would guess for waits at WORST:

60-90 min. for X2

45-60 min. for Tatsu

45-60 min. for Green Lantern

30 min. for Goliath in the afternoon

60-90 min. for Riddlers (one train operation)

Everything else 30 min. or less..

 

Or if it is a rainy day (I went on a rainy Monday during Spring Break 2010):

X2: 10 min. or less

 

Everything else: Not much

 

Hope this helps!

I will be going to SFMM on Thursday the 19th of April. I'm from Australia and can't convince my wife to come with me. Will it be that unusual to see a 35 year old male standing in line waiting to ride coasters? Being from Australia, we don't really have parks like these, so I have to do it while I have the chance!

Nope! It happens all the time! Don't worry!

Hey guys, I know you hate these questions, but:

 

What will the crowds be like on Thursday April 5, and Friday April 6? I know it will be spring break but what are the crowds usually like in terms of waits for rides, etc?

Don't worry about the crowds if you get there before opening. Take the Revolution exit shortcut to Tatsu right as you get in, then head to Apocalypse, Riddler's (single rider), Green Lantern (single rider), Batman, Scream, Colossus. As long as you don't lollygag around, you'll get these rides done really fast.

 

Try to put off your lunch until after you're done with Colossus, so you don't have to pause as the crowds fill in the park. Viper and Revolution will have long lines at the beginning of the day. Come back in the late afternoon/evening to ride those with short waits, and brave X2 while you're over there (which won't ever really get shorter than an hour all day). Ninja and Gold Rusher will never really generate any "long" lines, so ride those when you have spare time.

 

That's what I usually do, and I only end up in significant lines for Goliath and X2 when its all said and done. It's really difficult to get through 13 coasters without having to wait in something. Have fun!
