Another couple of notes: It appears that all of the speakers on Terminator have been removed from the trains and replaced with that criss-cross patterned metal. Strangely, that actually adds a bit to the overall theme of the trains.

Also, on X2, some of you may have noticed that there are variations in the soundtrack depending on which train you ride. (Or you all know and I've just been comatose. :P ) On Monday, I noticed that one line, a squeaky voice that says, "Whose idea was this?" is heard on Train 1, but not Train 2 (I don't know about Train 3). Personally, I haven't noticed any others, but maybe some of you have. For whatever reason, I just found that interesting.

^I'm betting the change in the soundtrack is merely a case of the sensor on the train not connecting with the one on the track and that part of the audio getting skipped over. But hey, it creates a new experience every time you ride! :P

I think they should've left Terminator's speakers in to make it go faster though, that'd at least get some use out of them!

hi there
I plan to visit SF MM at November 6th this year. I know, questions about how crowded it will be are annoying but, what are you thinking about get a flash pass (gold or platinum) at this time of year? Is it wasted money or still necessary if we want to ride all rides in one day?
And what'll be the better choice, gold pass or platinum pass?
thanks so far
Marcel

^ It shouldn't be too crowded. But then again it is a Saturday. If you want to ride everything about once, a flash pass probably won't be needed. If you want to get some re-rides in and don't mind spending more cash, then go for a gold flash pass. I mean if you're coming all the way from Switzerland, I would assume you would want to get re-rides. A platinum one is probably not going to be worth it at that time of year.

Hi everyone. I'm the group leader of a students spanish group here in L.A., and we are going to SFMM this sunday (July 11th). The point is... it is the same day of the soccer World Cup finale, and that's somehing really important for us. But, as we already got the tickets, we are wondering if there's a chance on watching it on SFMM, if there's someplace where they will retransmit it.

Thank you in advance :)

^That's a really great question!

When we were in Europe all of the big parks we visited on World Cup match days would have various places setup to watch the game. The USA is really not into soccer though so I'm not sure that SFMM has this setup, perhaps you should call guest relations and see if they will be prepared. It may be something they haven't even thought of yet but would be open to though!

^^I actually visited the park on the day of the last World Cup Final. And I don't remeber them playing it anywhere in the park. Its not like Soccer is that big in here in the states. You could always check out the computers in the Cyber Cafe.

^Remember, your in Southern California, also known as North Mexico. The geographical local and indigenous population would scream otherwise. Perhaps they are showing the games on a huge screen in the theater? It would be a nice break from the heat of the day. MM could serve ice cold Cokes and McDonalds hamburgers as they are the 2 largest officially licensed sponsors of the World Cup. :Pr

Hey guys. thanks to all. I called guest relations and told me there weren't going to show the match inside the park :( I'll have to bring a radio and hear it up. Do you know which radio may retransmit it???

Thanks all.

Apart from this, i'm wondering how much would a taxi cost from burbank (woodbury university) to six flags, as the local group leaders has set the price as 100$ and i find it far more expensive than it should be. I think that, as we are an small group (with me 4) we can call a taxi and go there by our own.


Thanks again!
