Historically, Columbus Day is usually manageable, crowd wise. Of course, your mileage may vary depending on weather.

As others have said in the past, the crowds at this park make no sense, lol.

Exhibit A: Labor Day weekend Saturday: beautiful weather, holiday weekend, no significant lines that I saw.

Exhibit B: Labor Day weekend Sunday: same weather, holiday weekend, 10x the crowds (based on what I read, anyways)

Typically the holiday Monday itself at ANY other park will yield better than the weekend, but I swear you never know with this park.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

From Screamscape today:

Park News - (9/10/18) I'm not sure how true this is, but an odd rumor came in over the weekend claiming that El Diablo could leave at the end of the 2018 season. Anyone else heard this, or is it complete nonsense? Personally I’m not buying it just yet...


My initial feeling was...

...but then I thought about it a little bit more and to be honest, when factoring in a couple more things that we know, the claim may not be that far off. We know that they walled off the Splashwater Oasis complex in the Golden Kingdom. Also, at Riding of the Bulls on Saturday, park president John Winkler told those attending that the 2020 attraction will be “tall", "made of steel”, and has been in the works for a while. This heavily hints towards a coaster, which would fit nicely into the potential area freed up by removing Oasis and Diablo.

I still lean towards "bulls**t" about El Diablo leaving, but who knows.

^Coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain in 2020................surprisingly Magic Mountain is now the only Six Flags park to not have a Super Loop or have one coming next year. Even Great Escape has a Super Loop.

Maybe they realized giving an entirely new ride to La Ronde wasn't worth it so they're getting another hand me down? :lol:

Then again this is Screamscape so everything is taken with a grain of salt.

I know your kidding, but I read a rumor that this is exactly whats happening :lmao:
Now obviously there's no way to be sure if its true, (although apparently this rumor also originates from Riding of the Bull, in which one of the staff members told a couple of people it would be leaving) but I honestly won't be surprised if this happens, and then the "big project" for 2020's ride entrance is located where El Diablo is currently.

Wondering if it's leaving, or just being moved somewhere else in the park. Of course, if it's moving at all.
The top 3: Twisted Timbers, El Toro, Volcano

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

Let's operate under the assumption that it's true that El Diablo goes away . . .

And take the clues (tall & made of steel) . . . maybe a B&M Wing Coaster?

The park is beautifully empty today. Thank you light rain.
