Yes, it's one time res on the more expensive pass only. They were doing flash pass on it up through this weekend. The ride was closed yesterday, and today they are doing media day, and they have the whole underground area blocked off from guests.


Thanks! It'll be interesting if it's allowed with the Diamond Elite skip-the-line passes as well.

I rode WCR a few weeks ago, and it is a great ride.
It’ll probably bring in some crowds these next few weeks (at least on weekends) - which made me ponder today... (I’ll put the crack pipe down in a second, but hear me out first.)
What if the park purposely delayed WCR’s opening until now to try to bring in crowds during what is typically their slowest time of the year? Maybe this was planned all along and they aren’t as inept as we thought.

looks great!

thanks for covering it John.

It is a great ride. I would also like to add that the comfort collars are very unnoticeable and hardly affect the ride experience. They really only make the train even more cumbersome to enter/exit than it already is. However, I went on a very cold day and was dressed in many layers, so I had some extra padding around my neck...

I thought they were much more noticeable on Electric Eel though. Are the ones on WCR an updated design?

I went to the West Coast Racers media day. We've finally made it! I got up way too early to make the commute to SFMM. Media day for use started just after sunrise. There was a lot of waiting around for all the TV stations' broadcasts. I'm in Las Vegas now and need to get home to check them all out since I recorded most all of them. haha.

Anyway, after some time it was my turn to ride. I rode a few more times in different seats and I think at least for now, my favorite is the front row. It's too bad they cut out the reverse POV going into the "high five". That's probably the most violent part of the ride as your thrown into the comfort collars.

The ride is loads of fun, and I'm sure to be a huge hit. Finally the 9th is upon us, and everyone will have their chance to experience West Coast Racers.



Here's some pictures of the more refined "The Underground", and station.

Looks like a great addition to the park! Capacity-wise it looks kinda slow but maybe I'm wrong on that one. For those who've ridden it, does the line move slowly?

Great report! The whole Underground area looks better than I expected.

Great report! No way to tell really yet on how the line moves. During the preview period it would go down pretty often while they were working out the kinks.
