If I'm at the point where I'd have to take a bus to connect to something else, that's where I give up and just do a car or Uber directly. I put my time in living in Boston for several years taking the T or Ubering, only using my car once every 2-3 weeks or less. Generally, if there's an adequate place to park and I'm not planning on getting stupid drunk, I jut go with the car option.


You weren't the one asking about if it is possible to do the two parks without a car though. I answered with how it is possible for the person asking...

OK I guess it comes down to the phrasing of the question. Its possible, sure. I'm just not sure if its advisable.

Was at the park yesterday. Does anyone know what happened to Crazanity? It broke on Sunday apparently and was still closed yesterday. Riddlers and BFM were closed as well....

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Justice League (I assume that's "BFM") was open most of the day yesterday with only a brief closure and Riddler's reopened last night.

I don't know why more people don't check Queue Times, it's dorky and it's not perfect (as it relies on the parks correctly updating wait times and ride status in their respective apps) but it's such a cool resource.

I was at the park last weekend, and was told Crazanity will be down for an extended period. That means maybe weeks. I saw the maintenance climbers leaving the ride, so it's something they checked up top. If you look closely, there's even a rope from the top (near the center of the ride) to the bottom. They didn't even have the lights on at night.
Coasternut,

I'm assuming January 29 (Tuesday) would be ok to go? Kiddies all back in school and no holiday.

Yep, crowds will probably be non-existent that day.
However, the park will probably be running one train and skeleton crews on all of the coasters (two trains on Twisted Colossus). Also, since the park closes at 6:00, many of the restaurants will close around 5:00 (except Plaza Cafe in the front of the park).

I still need to try and visit on a weekday during the slow season. I don't think I've ever been to SFMM when it wasn't packed, except for TPR ERT!

How is Thanksgiving week before Black Friday for crowds? I know schools are closed but the park shuts at 9 and night rides become a thing. What about mid September during the first week/weekend of Halloween events? Is it possible to ride pretty much every coaster at night that first 1am closing Saturday/11pm Sunday with a Flashpass both days (I think Saturday evening admission/Flashpasses are sold separately to day admission)?
