Help with Planning SoCal Trip

Tuesday, March 12, 2002 8:50 AM

In the beginning of June I am looking to fly out to Irvine and stay for a week. I was hoping to devote 3 days to parks:

1: Six Flags Magic Mountain

2: Knotts

3: Disneyland/California Adventures

It is feasible to hit all of the mountains coasters in one day during the week in June? Can I hit both Disney Parks in one day, get a good experience and hit all the coasters? Do I need to devote a whole day to Knott's is it worth it since there is a shot in hell excelerator will be open. Will anything at Magic Mountain be down for yearly maintinence? Any help with that park especially, from you California regulars

This summer will be the first summer that both X and Deja Vu will be open, so that makes more coasters to hit in a single day. If you get there at least 30 minutes before opening and run to X, then go to DV then to Superman, you could get all of the slow loaders out of the way first. It may take you up and down the hill, but I think that would be the best pattern. Flashback will probably be closed, it closes in summer due to its proximity to the water park, but that is no great loss, in fact it may be a blessing. Yearly maintainance is happening now, and everything should be open in summer.

You CAN hit both Disney parks and get on all of their coasters in one day, if you only care about coasters and nothing else. Disney has PLENTY of non-coaster things that are really good too, but it's up to you.

Knott's coasters can be done in half a day, but again, there are quite a few non-coaster rides worth riding. Xcelerator should be open by June, I believe they are "shooting" for a May opening. You'll want to ride Ghostrider more than just once, though. It is the best ride in California (IMO).

Have fun!

Nothing... NOTHING... can prepare you for... the Fourth Dimension!
