Yes it has been open and usually with two trains.

Also this is a great day to visit. Even X2 is a walk-on already.

Nice! Is X2 back to 2 train ops? It was down to one train yesterday, and had an hour-long wait time when everything else had 5-10 minute waits.

It was running two trains. However, when we left the ride they dispatched an empty almost as if they were thinking of dropping down to one train.

Wanted to report that we were able to get everything in at the park yesterday without Flash Pass, despite the nice weather and the BAF for $9.99!

We got to the park right when it opened and found that YOLOcoaster and Goliath both weren't open yet, so we went to Twisted Colossus and waited about 10 minutes. Then walked onto Scream, Batman, and Riddler before making our way back to Goliath.

Goliath had about a 30 minute wait at this point since it was only running one train. We headed back towards the exit to leave the park for lunch and saw YOLOcoaster had a station wait, so we hit it before leaving.

Took about an hour lunch break at In-N-Out before getting back to the park at 3:15. Made our way up to the hill to ride Superman, which had about an hour wait running only one side. Then we waited about 15 minutes for Tatsu before heading down to X2 for another short 15 minute wait. After that we walked into Viper before riding YOLOcoaster again.

Overall a successful day for us! Not so sure about other guests since I checked the app when we got back from lunch and Goliath and Twisted Colossus were both listed as 90 minute waits.

The park didn't look too busy based on what I saw in the midways but I guess if you get there when it opens, you have a good chance of hitting everything without Flashpass, even on a moderately crowded day!
Coaster count:
101 (87 steel, 14 wood)

Top 5:
I305 | El Toro | Maverick | Twisted Colossus | Alpengeist

Wow, a lot of us were at the park yesterday. I was there too. The weather was perfect, and the crowds were very light. As others have said, X2 was a walk on or 1 train wait in the middle of the day, which was surprising. Tatsu and TC were like 10-20mins throughout the day. I took a 3 hour break in the middle of the day to watch the pro bowl at the sports bar and have a few beers, and still got 20 laps in.

Dang, this could've been a TPR meet-up! I'm glad you guys had fun. I was there on Saturday morning and everything was a walk-on except X2 (which was running one train), Tatsu, and TC.

Side note: I noticed a Crazy Otto's is opening up on Magic Mountain Pkwy, just on the other side of the freeway from the park. Crazy Otto's started out as an Antelope Valley exclusive, but has been gradually making its way into Santa Clarita. They are known for "pancakes as big as your plate" and other breakfast items with pretty large portions. I ate at the one in Acton yesterday and was reminded how delicious their biscuits and gravy are.
