I just checked the site using Chrome from my laptop and it is still there.

It’s still listed on the app, too.

I was in the park over the weekend and asked about that with the Apocalypse staff/manager while riding it (so yes, it's still open). It was just an error, and they further clarified that Apocalypse will be open on weekends only until WCR is up.

^ Thanks for clarifying. I remember Apocalypse being fantastic back in 2014, but it was brutal when I rode it a few years later. Based on the recent accounts, it sounds like it's running like 2014 again.

My 2014 rides were honestly better than Gold Striker.

Apocalypse is definitely running better than Gold Striker right now. Gold Striker shuffled and jackhammered like crazy when I rode it about 3 months ago. Apocalypse, on the other hand, is running great.

I'm even comparing my 2014 Gold Striker rides to 2014 Apocalypse rides and I preferred Apocalypse. And Gold Striker was about as smooth as a traditional wood coaster could be back then.

I agree Gold Striker has started to have a shimmy, but I found it to be no problem at all (granted I have a super high tolerance for rough rides).

Is it complicated to go to this park by public transport from Los Angeles?
It may be that I go there at the end of February.
Thank you for your answers ;)

^Yes. If you do a search of this thread or the ask Alvey board it has been discussed quite a bit. VERY hard to do on public transportation. Takes forever. Won’t get there for opening and have to leave before closing. Assuming you are down in the LA or Anaheim area. Rent a car or use Uber/Lyft.

I just did it about a month ago. Now, location is key as I was staying on Hollywood blvd and Western. I ended up taking the metro rail red line to the North Hollywood station. From there, I took the Santa Clarita 757 to the Valencia blvd/Mcbean transfer station. Got on the Santa Clarita 7 (Magic Mountain) and got off at Magic Mountain. Overall the trip took about 1 hour and 40 minutes BUT it cost me around 6 dollars. I left a little after 7 and got there before 9. I actually got there too early as the parked opened at 10AM. I actually took public transportation to Knotts as well as Universal Studios and I really enjoyed being able to not fight traffic and travel for a fraction of the cost. If you need more help just shoot me a PM!
