Superman wasn't even on Flash Pass the last few times. But as of my most recent visit, X2 and YOLOcoaster were one time only.

Superman is essentially off the flashpass list altogether, from what I was told.

Superman has been off the Flash Pass for years now. X2, F U L L Throttle and West Coast Racers are one time reservations. West Coast Racers is only available for Gold & Platinum Flash Pass. No skip the line for West Coast Racers either.

I assume "skip the line" is referring to the upper tier Memberships benefits? In that regard, there's no membership skip the line for: X2 (most days), Crazanity, and the aforementioned Superman, which has been off the Fastlane for years. And now WCR?

To be honest, that's fair, as it's the new attraction. But it'd be nice if they gave Crazanity back, though with it's still high levels of popularity and relatively low throughput, that's unlikely as well.

I'm SUPER pumped to be visiting this park Feb. 16, 17, and 18. Just wondering what kinds of crowds to expect. The 16th is a Sunday, the 17th is President's day and I believe LA schools are off, and then I imagine Tuesday the 18th should be pretty dead. But not sure what to expect for the other two days. And I'd also like to hear some ideas for a plan of attack. Thanks!

^ Superman isn't on the Flash Pass. And YOLOcoaster, X2, and West Coast Racers are one time only on the Flash Pass. If you don't plan to get a Flash Pass, I recommend hitting these three attractions early in the day since they will build up the longest queues. If you plan to get a Flash Pass, I recommend hitting these rides anyway since you probably will want to get a few rides on them.

Here's what I would do first without a flash pass:
1. YOLOcoaster
2. X2
3. West Coast Racers
4. Superman

I'd recommend hitting YOLOcoaster, then West Coast Racers first. I just went on Monday and Tuesday this week and the park was completely dead. Everything was a walk on, but WCR still had a 20-30 min wait. With X2 the line tends to die down by early afternoon.

I agree with this. However, I will add that I tend to hit X2 first. It's a rough ride, but the first few rides of the day are relatively smooth. After that, it goes downhill. I've ridden it first thing, then come back after 4:00 (the line usually dies down by then, but not always), and it beats the crap out of me.
