I will be making a short trip out to California in mid December for a wedding. I plan on hitting up Knott's and SFMM, what are the lines usually like in December? Thanks!

Manic Monte wrote:The best hope for Revolution... Is time. Eventually the park will need new trains, and a new angle in which to market the ride to younger guests (see X2 or Colossus). Only then will we possibly see the changes we hope for Revolution. I have a hunch that this will be sooner rather than later.


This is what I'm hoping for. Now that they are transforming Colossus I'm hoping 2016 will be a revamp of Revolution in some way for its 40th anniversary. I was talking about this to a couple of people in the park yesterday. New trains with lap bar restraints are a must, get rid of all the unnecessary trims, re paint and smooth out the track, and maybe add some effects to the ride. I rode Revolution once yesterday, and the OTSR is horrible and legroom is even worse if you're in a non front row of a car with an un padded metal bar that can really hurt your knees. I know its a pipe dream for now, but the fact they are redoing Colossus gives me hope for Revolution in the future. The layout through the trees are awesome and the ride really has potential.

Regarding the parking for the gold passes, my husband and I we're told that parking wasn't covered until 2015.

I got the Labor Day gold pass deal and was able to park for free at Marine World over the weekend.

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

Check their website. They are not open every day in December. https://www.sixflags.com/magicmountain/events/all

As far as crowds I think at this point it is to early to judge. They are now promoting a "Holiday in the Park" This year. Traditionally december weekdays were dead and sunday is better then Saterday (Which I imagine will still be the case). However Holiday in the Park is a special event like Fright Fest which I assume will attract more crowds then a typical december day in the past.

I always recommend budget a fast pass and you can buy it the day of if the lines are rediciously long.

My small thing speaks for itself

I've got a few friends posting on Facebook that Colossus is on fire? Any truth?

Apparently it is.
