I will be traveling to SFMM in a few days I am at my uncles house in LA already and I am going to SFMM while I am here and I need to know how X is running, and what days it will be open in the next week if you can or the days it is usually closed/open...also what are waits like on a saturday/ monday because most likely i will be going on one of those days... the site says teh park opens at 10 does that mean that they open rides at 10 and people can enter an hr earlier or that people can enter starting at 10??i need help with that, and also what rides are rides i should skip and which ones should i definately get on???
No one can ever predict what is going on with X. X has been opening with the park more often now and it is still the most popular ride. I would highly suggest getting to the park at 9 and then running to X when the park opens to avoid the line for that ride. The park opens its gates promptly at 10 am and all rides do open at that time unless there is a problem. I hope that helps.
I am sorry for the bad grammer. I was not sure people would really mind how I typed. I was in a rush earlier so I typed that up really fast.
I have been to the site numerous times, but I still feel that there is something more I should know to be more well prepared for my trip.
I am sure you all have been there before, so I am asking what are the better rides (more worth the wait). I am trying to get some help on how to have the best possible day I can on my most likely only trip ever to Magic Mountain.
Does anyone know what days X is usually open. I want to know because that it what I want to ride the most. I called the park, they said I have to cal the day I am going to the park to find out if it will be running or not, so that didnt help any. The lady was just trying to get me off the phone, I think she was in a hurry.
I just want any tips/help I can get about the park
Well I have the choice to go Monday or Saturday, I am almost positive that it will be more crowded on Saturday, but I feel more confident that X will be open. So has X ever been open on a Monday, if so often or rarely?
Also I dont think that you should be insulting someone that is asking for some help. I find that very rude, and arrogant of you. If you were to ask someone for help would you like it if someone just insulted you? I do not think you would, unless you are as shallow, and immature as you are acting.
Welcome to Coasterbuzz, Why3289. Unfortunately, grammar is harped on here very viciously. Amazing that something like a website devoted to someone's hobby has to always be 12th grade English composition.
Get there any hour prior to opening. (9 a.m.) as soon as you get into the park, head straight to X (it will PROBABLY be open within 30-45 minutes, and you want to get on it first thing)... within 20 minutes, the line can become 2-4 hours long!
To get to X, it is a little confusing. When you get into the park, go through the main entrance section, head towards Viper, and turn RIGHT to go on the bridge towards X. (You have to do a 270 degree circle to get there ;))
Ride as close to the front as possible, inside seat.
Dejavu will be closed regardless of the day you visit (the train's metal structure is sitting beside Psyclone.)
You want to get on S:TE (But there is a high probability that it is not open.)
Here are other Must Rides:
Goliath: Back seat
Riddler's Revenge: Back (or Front)
Collosus: Back (hopefully you will be able to ride the side that is going backwards.)
(If you have already ridden a Batman: the Ride clone, don't worry about it if the lines are long.)
Viper: Doesn't really matter.
Hope this helped! Sorry most people are rude on this site.
I think X is scheduled to be closed on Wednesdays, so it should be open Monday, but as with all rides, you can't predict if it will be running. Personally, I prefer the front of the train, pretty much any seat. View-wise, it hardly matters what seat you take.
As for rides to skip/must ride, my choices are like this:
Revolution-Must skip. I found this painful and boring.
Viper-Big ol' Arrow looper. A decent ride. Ride if line is short.
Batman-Love this, line is usually quick. But if you've been on a bunch of Batman's, it's skipable.
Superman-This is often plaugued with 1 car operation, and/or slow lines... You can never tell how the line is until you're in it... And since I've found the ride only moderately interesting, I usually opt for skipping this one.
Ninja-This is a surpringly 'fun' little ride. Front, of course, for best view. Not super scary, but good for a bunch of giggles.
Goliath-A very cool ride, do this for sure.
Colossus-The definition of skipable.
Riddler's-Ok ride, but not amazing.
X-ride this all day long
Sorry, can't help you the opening time... Why not give them a call?
I would always opt for monday over saturday... After working at Cedar Point for a couple years, I've learned that crowds are always, always largest on saturdays... I don't think I would ever bother to go to a park (except a small one) on a Saturday.
