Question here. How windy does it have to be for the rides to shut down? I noticed it may be slightly windy next week when I decide to go.

Are there any decent places to eat inside the park?

The first rides to shut down in high winds are X2, Lex Luthor, and Superman. Most rides should operate unless it is incredibly, abnormally windy.

My favorite location to sit down and eat is in Food etc. (to the left of Goliath's entrance). Lots of seating, climate controlled, and spacious. Some of the booths on the bottom level can be pretty gross and outdated though. This place includes nachos, tacos, Greek food, and I believe sushi as well. However, my favorite food in the park isn't necessarily located there. I really like the sandwiches at Twisted Witches down near Twisted Colossus, and the BBQ place near Riddler's Revenge and Tidal Wave is also quite good (I believe it's called Ace of Clubs). Although apparently all the seating has been ripped up due to the mysterious construction, so perhaps that restaurant is closed entirely, and if not, there is definitely limited seating there now.

EDIT: Also, I forgot to mention that there are several new food options in the WCR area, but I have not tried them yet. I rode WCR during it's technical rehearsal when the food facilities weren't open yet.

Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll try food etc. today. It was packed pretty much all day yesterday. I ended up eating at Carlini’s pizza and it was really good for amusement park pizza. That cheese bread was really good too!! Also think I’m going to try the burgers at Katy’s kettle.

^ The loaded baked potatoes at Katy’s Kettle are good, too. They have a chili cheese potato and a chicken bacon ranch potato, and they’re both pretty tasty. They’re both on the dining plan, too.

Hey! I'm working on a short documentary video on Flashback's run at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Does anyone have any photos I would be able to use in it? I will of course give full credit.

I have a few questions for the locals. I'm taking my son to the park for the first time this Friday. How will the crowds be? Also, will some rides be down since it's a weekday. Any other advice will be welcomed!

Thanks!

I'm excited to check out SFMM during a totally dead day next week. My spring break falls obnoxiously early this year (it's March 2-6), which is kind of annoying for some reasons (shorter operating hours at parks), but it will be a total ghost town at both Knott's and SFMM and I am looking forward to marathoning rides like crazy.

Hey all. Are crowds unbearable in the middle of August? May be going on August 9. It's a Sunday.
