Everyone (especially 1st timers) are going to have a blast...! Its going to be hot in SoCal this weekend...just saying...I'm very bummed to be missing my first WCB in a long time...had a pretty significant accident in mid July that does not have me TPR ready for the weekend...so I will follow along with updates from Robb on Social Media and think about next year and the new coaster at SFMM. Have fun everyone and respect the organization and Family who make this possible.!

^ When I was at WCB two years ago, it hit 90' at SFMM. So be prepared, people.

Even Knott's is expected to have 94-degree weather on Saturday. It'll still be about 10 degrees cooler than Valencia that day, but temperatures will drop into the 90s in Valencia on Sunday.
However, Buena Park tends to be more humid than Valencia, so those of you who are going to both days of WCB might experience more tolerable weather at SFMM than KBF. It's typically the other way around.

I'm staying the night at the Knotts Hotel on Saturday. Any advice on what time I should leave in the morning to make it to Six Flags for check-in?
I plugged it into my phone but with L.A. traffic, I wasn't too sure what to trust.

If you want to get there by 7:30 am on Sunday, it should take about one hour up the 5. I would leave around 6:19 AM exactly!

I would allow 90 minutes. I-5 can have some unpredictable traffic and you never know about random construction or accidents. IMO it's always better to be 30 minutes early than 5 minutes late...

We usually come from the Knotts area and always plan on at least 2 hours. There's an IHOP, Denny's and a few other eateries at the Lyons exit just before Magic Mountain. You can always stop for a bite to eat, that's what we do if we get lucky with traffic. Better to be early than late.

Just so everybody knows, the last few miles on I-5 heading north towards SFMM are all torn up in construction. There's also major construction zones on I-5 in Burbank, and the Norwalk area. Don't expect your fellow drivers to be taking it easy at all through them. All it takes is one accident to create an enormous delay. I highly recommend checking Google maps for traffic conditions before you leave so you know what spots on I-5 to avoid along the way. The good news is there shouldn't be any overnight construction closures that may or may not be cleared by the time those of you heading north from KBF hit the road, but please give yourselves all the extra time you're willing to wake up for. You'll be glad you did.
