Help!! It looks like GhostRider, Revolucion, and Calico Mine Train are closed on the weekdays during my visit, but are open on Saturday/Sunday. Is it worth switching a Wednesday at KBF to a Sat/Sun with much higher crowds? Here is the current itinerary:

Mon: Six Flags Magic Mountain
Tue: Six Flags Magic Mountain
Wed: Knott's
Thu: Disney California Adventure
Fri: Disneyland
Sat: Disney California Adventure
Sun: Disneyland

^ Well, if you really want to ride those that are closed on week days... you change your week day visit to the Saturday, and get a (their paid version of) FastPass if you think the crowds will be bigger...which they probably will be. :wink:

GhostRider is an awesome wooden coaster. I'd deal with higher overall crowds so you can ride it.

Ghostrider and Calico Mine Train are both great. I'd swap and do Wednesday at Disney and Sunday at Knott's.

I know this is an old post but after finally riding it on Saturday I really just want an excuse to sh*t on this ride so I'm bumping it. This is an insult to Apple Zapple. :lol:

Did this park spend actual money on Coast Rider or did Mack just break into the park in the middle of the night one night and set it up as a practical joke? Apple Zapple is fun, Coast Rider sucks. If Coast Rider were any slower it would be going backwards. I seriously thought someone was going to have to climb up and push. Everyone complains about the restraints and I agree that they're really dumb but this would probably still be the worst wild mouse on the planet even without them. It's a miracle that it ever makes it back to the station and that any of the riders ever come back awake. This ride makes Goofy's Sky School next door look like Intimidator 305 by comparison.

^ It's incredible a ride that slow can be that painful. It was already one of the worst mice before those shin guards. With the shin guards and an op who stapled, oh my god did that ride suck.

Ghost Rider's worth it. It's a fantastic ride, but brace yourself for painful operations (the ride's fault — not the ops).

Yeah, Coast Rider. I was having an amazing day. My flight was on time, I made it from Chicago to Knott's in 5 hours, I had just gotten off Timber Mountain, and I didn't think anything could knock the smile off my face. I sat down expecting a normal wild mouse and the lap bar came down and we dispatched so quickly I wasn't able to escape. What a sh*tty experience for a normally unoffensive ride type.

This. I'd swap it for either ride on it's own.
