not really answering your question, but in my report, i purposely typed YOLO Plaza. lmao.


Oh cause I had a previous post that replaced YOLOcoaster with YOLO.

EDIT: Guess it replaces it with YOLOcoaster.

Maybe i'm old fashion but I think you should want your new attraction of the year open for your peak season. With other parks opening attractions I would personally go to the park with something new to do if I only have one time a year to go to a park. I know, we as enthusiast try to cut parks slack but to open your new for 2019 attraction when there is only like 50 days left in 2019 is kinda bad to me.


I don't think anyone here disagrees with you. But it's done. At this point we're looking forward to riding it NOT in peak season, but when the park is dead.

SFMM will just market WCR as a new ride all next year anyway, after I've already ridden it several times. Good times...

Why do I still have a donkey title???

And like I said, just because it isn't summer doesn't mean it's not peak season anymore. Magic Mountain gets slammed during Fright Fest and HITP. They reached capacity on December 30th last year, and they almost never reach capacity during the summer.

When it comes to opening new rides at year-round parks, you have to shift your mindset a little bit. If this park was open through Halloween and would barely open their new ride by then, I totally get that. But you can visit this park any day of the year, so who cares if their new coaster opens in November?

Silver Bullet and GhostRider both opened in December, for what it's worth.

they are busy on the weekends and a complete ghost town during the week. i'm sure they attendance, while good for weekends, doesn't even come close to the summer months.

personally, i'm in no hurry for west coast racers. it can be december for all i care. i just hope it takes away from twisted colossus line. i'm guessing it will be a ride i ride if the line is short, ala yolo coaster. lol

Screamscape reported a possible rumor that tidal wave may be removed and the park could add a Mack power splash in its place as well as the green lanterns old spot. When I first heard about Aquaman going to Over Texas I thought that SFMM would replace green lantern with one. It makes more sense that tidal wave would have to be involved as well as it looks as though they do take up a large amount of space. I would be happy if this comes true as they look like a great water ride and SFMM could definitely use another one.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Looking like my trip might happen in January. I know we don't have any official word from the park, but what do you guys think the over/under on WCR being open by than is?

I put it at 90% chance it will be open by then. I will be surprised if it doesn't open in Nov/Dec.
