p. 53 - Nighttime trip report!

What all is included in your $40 wristband?  I was looking online at their list of rides and attractions and they list a lot of things that seem like they might be an extra charge (VR room, laser challenge, etc).  Are these things included?

If the website lists them as an extra charge, then I would trust that. I had no desire to do those attractions (especially with COVID), I was only interested in the rides and coasters, so I can't tell you for sure.

It doesn't say whether they would be an extra charge or not, it just seems like they might be.  Usually things like that are.  I'll just give them a call and see.

Hello everyone!

So I am making a return trip to SFMM this weekend, and heading out Saturday. Frontier kindly eliminated my direct afternoon flight to Burbank and gave me the option of either cancelling entirely or accepting a new itinerary with a 4-hour layover in Vegas 🙃. So, looks like I'm going to Vegas, and figured I might as well use it to do some extra coaster riding, as I haven't been yet. Definitely understand that with the time it takes to get through the airport after I land, likely 15-20min Uber rides each way, and allotting two hours to go back through LAS security, I'd MAX have about one hour at the park just after it opens at 10am.

I'd like to get two rides each on Canyon Blaster & El Loco, as well as a ride on Chaos if it's open, since I'd have to pay for the $40 all-day wristband. My questions are, does anyone think it's feasible to trek through the airport, over there, & back on such a tight schedule? Think I'd have any problems getting an Uber each way? Anyone know what the park's operations and open rides are like that early on a Saturday?

I think you'll be pushing it.  LAS is a huge airport, so depending on what terminal you're flying through it could be anywhere from 15-45 minutes to get outside.  You're also vastly underestimating the time it'll take via Uber/Lyft (getting one shouldn't be a problem, but traffic will).  Sorry, I think it's doable, but paying $40 for one hour of rides (MAYBE one hour) doesn't seem like a sensible plan to me.  If your first flight is delayed even a little bit your plan goes to hell.

Yeah, it was definitely wishful thinking. Unfortunately the time constraint is just short enough that it allows virtually no room for error between potential delays in flights or traffic. Maps has been saying 15-20min for the Uber ride between Terminal 3 (where Frontier is through) and Adventuredome, but even if it was actually that short each way (not including waiting for Uber request to be processed/show up), I'd probably need to sprint around everywhere to give me any decent time at the park, lol.

I say go for it. Crowds shouldn't be bad at opening and the coasters are relatively reliable. Plus, Saturday is probably the best day to travel into/out of LAS, since most people there are staying over the weekend. You really don't need more than an hour at Adventuredome, anyway.

If you do it, I would order your Uber/Left as soon as you deplane so it's waiting for you when you get to the ride share lot.  I don't think you'll have any lines that early in the morning, so 1 hour should be enough time to accomplish your ride goals.

I would almost suggest doing a taxi from the airport as there's usually a line of them waiting at the airport and you can just jump in as opposed to waiting for an Uber/Lyft. Also, I wouldn't do this as it would give me way too much anxiety to have fun on the coasters but to each their own!

I hope you have TSA pre-check.  That probably buys you at least half an hour.

I once successfully started a day at 10 am open at SFMM to ride Twisted Colossus and Full Throttle and catch a 1:30 pm transcontinental flight ...out of Long Beach

Wish I had TSA pre-check, definitely should have gone for it BEFORE all my travelling this year.. Thanks for the inputs everyone! I'll definitely decide tomorrow once I'm there to gauge whether I think it'll be feasible.
