Turntable please


Seconded, Tidal wave already gets a ridiculous line for what it is when it is hot out. We don't need a repeat of it with something replacing it.

It would make sense to have a powersplash for MM as they really want to get back up to 20 coasters but they also don't want to take out one of their water rides. Not to mention they can just theme it to Aquaman and that whole back corner of the park will be DC (especially if they retheme crazanity to Harley Quinn or Joker or something).

Seems like Apocalypse is only open on fright fest days. At least today the section was closed off like it had been all summer.
Also GLFF is more than halfway gone, good riddance.

I’m planning a trip to 6FMM and Knott’s this winter. I’m hoping for some info on when is the best time to go and if I’ll need 2 days at magic mountain to get all the credits and enjoy the park. Dates are totally flexible and I’m looking for Jan/feb recommendations as I think my Canadian stat holidays might be different and I don’t want to show up to super busy park.
Any dates I should straight up avoid?
Anything else like restaurants or tourist stuff and such outside the park would also be appreciated :)

You only need 2 days if you go on a busy day. I use the past records and estimates from https://queue-times.com/parks/32/calendar to judge park crowds.
Here is the one for knotts, https://queue-times.com/parks/61/calendar .

As far as places outside of the park, off the top of my head, Philippe just outside of chinatown for a great french dip. Papa Cristo's over in Pico Union is a great greek place. If you have a big movie you are interested in around the time you visit, I would recommend hitting Edwards 21 over at Irvine Spectrum if they have it on their huge Imax, it's a great screen.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

If you go on a weekday, you should only need one day at each park as they should be completely dead. You will want to avoid the MLK holiday weekend Jan 18-20 and the Presidents' Day holiday weekend on Feb 15-17. I would also avoid the first week of January as kids will still be out of school on Winter Break. Also, you should check the Knotts calendar for scheduled ride closures. The ride closure dates are listed at the bottom of the calendar page:

https://www.knotts.com/explore/calendar-and-hours
Coaster Count: 220 Last Coaster: GhostRider
Top Ten: 1) Superman The Ride 2) Millennium Force 3) X2 4) Skyrush 5) El Toro 6) Twisted Colossus 7) Maverick 8) Shambhala 9) Lightning Rod 10) Mako

I Love Donkeys!

They should've kept the area part of DC Universe instead of retheming it to Boardwalk.

Visiting SFMM on Friday 18th October. Will be there from park opening time so will the crowds be light during the day before the Fright Fest mob arrives or will it be rammed all day? Not too fussed about the Fright Fest stuff, just there for the rides! Any opinions gratefully received! Thanks!!
