Knott's is closed today too, so it's not just SFMM. There's a pretty big storm in SoCal and it may last a few days, so I wouldn't recommend anyone planning on going to the park until Friday.

SFMM usually doesn't shut down unless it's a significant amount of rain. It's been dumping rain here all morning and it's supposed to continue until about 7:00 PM. Also, Santa Clarita schools just started back up today, so crowds would've been light anyway. Shutting down the park today was a no-brainer.

TIL theme parks make decisions on closing the park to prevent people from taking advantage of the dining pass... Who knew!? /s

Can I park my donkey here?

With the amount of rain coming down in So Cal it's not surprising. They have a lot of rides that don't run in the rain and going back to when I worked there almost 20 years ago if there was heavy rain prior to park open that forecast to continue throughout the day they wouldn't open. As others have mentioned KBF has done the same for decades as well.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

SFMM just posted on their Twitter the park is closed again today. I'm guessing it's gonna stay closed till Friday.

Just looking for an update on this? No one responded when I asked last week. Thanks in advance.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

What was unfinished about YOLOcoaster? Was the only issue that the shade canopy wasn't in place? If you don't want to stand in the sun then don't ride it that day but wouldn't you rather the park give you the option rather than keeping a ride that's otherwise ready to operate closed over something so trivial? :lol:

Not sure since I am only Diamond. Download the app and add your pass and you will be able to see all of your benefits.

Also, the sun is out and I'm off work so I'm heading to the mountain for 3-4 hours this morning, then heading down to Knott's for the afternoon!
