Christmas Week: Knotts and Magic Mountain!

Wednesday, December 6, 2006 8:57 PM
Hey I am going to Knott's Berry Farm on Christmas Eve day. I have not been to Knotts since 2 years ago in the Spring and there were no crowds! How are the crowds on Christmas Eve day and which ride should we head toward first? Xcellerator or Ghost Rider?

I am also going on my yearly Six Flags Magic Mountain trip on the same vacation (Same week as Christmas!). I want to know how long the lines for Tatsu are? I am probably going to get there 60-30 minutes before opening and run to the ride to the longest line in the day (X, I know it will be closed!).

All your tips will be appreciated!!!

I was at SFMM last Sunday and had an OK time there - here's my report -
It wasn't too full even though it was the weekend after Thanksgiving.
Tatsu's line was about 20 minutes I'd say, in 2-train 1-station op. I waited until later in the day until I actually went there.
Ninja and Flashback were closed, as well as some other stuff - the park looked a little like in "winter sleep mode", but it was pretty clean and all areas and stores were open.

^Not in the middle of winter!!!

I went on Perilous Plunge in the Spring and I get so wet that it was like 3 hours later until I finally dried out!!!

Knott's Berry Farm is awesome. I went in the middle of July and had no problems with lines at all. Essentially every attraction was open from open-close and the lines were very manageable. As for Six Flags, well, good luck. Just try to avoid the awful LA traffic and make the most of your day. I had a great time on both of my visits. Make sure to ride Golliath, Batman, Scream, Riddler's Revenge, and Deja Vu if it is open by some chance.

I know how to avoid the LA traffic when we go to Six Flags Magic Mountain every year around this time of year!

Tatsu is the best out of all 4 flying coasters i have ridden. Wait is only like 20 45 minutes on a bad day.

Scream was the worst out of all 4 B&M floorless I have ridden.

Goliath was the 2nd best Hyper coast I have ridden.

Collossus was the 2nd best woody i have ever ridden. I dont know why people dont like it.

Pysclone was the 2nd worst Woody i have ever ridden.

Riddlers revenge best Stand up with or without the pain.

Batman is always great.

X sucks that you are going to miss it.

Deja Vu always fun.

Flashback is barely ever open.

Ninja is fun

Goldrusher is just pure fun to mess around and scream and scare the little kids on.

Superman after TTD is just lame its not so bad the pennies sometimes will float but they usually just fall back. What the best thing on that is to open some hot sauce and when you get up there squeeze it out. It floats so much better and it is way funnier

If i missed anything besides Goliath Jr. and Canyon blaster sorry. Hope this was helpful

My guess is that those are the only two wooden coasters he's ridden, lol ;)

I have been on every coaster in the park multiple time!!!

Except for Tatsu and Flashback! (I got on Deja Vu only once during one if the times I went!)

No man i had two great rides on it. I have ridden Mega Zeph,SFNO, Judge Roy Scream SFOT, Mean Streak CP, Texas Giant STOT, Georgia Cyclone SFOG, Great American Scream Machine SFOG, both Gwazi BGA, Wild One SFA, Roar SFA and SFMW, Texas Cyclone SFAW,Pysclone SFMM and WildCat at Hp. Thats it as far as I can remember. i know its not great but i had a good ride on Collossus. The thing is tame and has one part with very little pain. I am still not sure why people dont like it

20-45 minutes if your lucky. Last time I went was the day after Thanksgiving and the line was 1 1/2 hours. I've also been there a couple of other times and the line was 1-2 hours.

If you don't want to wait in line, you should get there 30-45 minutes before they open and sprint over there, which I did the first time I went on it. First row on the first train out of the day. *** Edited 12/21/2006 2:54:39 AM UTC by david m***
