I am getting excited for this event seeing as the last time I went to Magic Mountain in December we only went on Tatsu because it was freezing! I loved the ride but I felt like I was going to die when it did that [insert fancy rollercoaster term here] or as we liked to call it "upside down feel like you are diving headfirst and can't breathe towards the end part". Looking forward to trying again! That was my first time at MM in like 7 years so I feel like I haven't really been to the park in that long.

One question: Would I be able to do update my pass to the one that includes parking at some point during the day or will we be too busy with stuff?

My friends and I are going to watch some of my TPR DVDs tomorrow night so they have a better idea of what they have gotten themselves into!!! :)

^ Your friends will be sorry. :lmao:

I'm sure there will be some free time during the day, even though there is a lot going on as well. And I think you can get a parking pass add-on to a regular season pass. I got the Xtreme Play Pass, so parking is already included.

Hey everyone. I came across this event and it sounds great. I am a Valencia local who has grown up with MM and it is really difficult to find historical information on the park, beyond what you find online.

Should I register or just show up with my papers that morning?

I'm going to try and get involved here so maybe I'll get to know a few people before the event. I'll probably be solo as my girl doesn't like MM, too intense for her, shes a DL type.

I registered! I'm excited for this. Riding coasters is always even more fun with other people who love them too.

I'm actually really excited for the guided tours with the lecture on the past and futureof the park. That should be great.

Who is going at 12:00 and who is going at 1:00?

I'm a 1:00 person.

I want to introduce myself, where should I do that? thanks

Here is the West Coast Bash Update email I sent today -

Hey everyone!

With just one week away until West Coast Bash I have an update for you regarding the event schedule and more details. Please read this entire email and drop us a line if you have any questions.

If you have not pre-paid for West Coast Bash yet, you can either make payment the day of the event or you can send your payment now ($20 per person) via www.paypal.com to account name store@themeparkreview.com

First off, Magic Mountain is preparing quite a few surprises for us. One of them which everyone will find out about during the Q&A session at Magic Moments theater, is something that I'm not sure I've ever seen at any other theme park or roller coaster enthusiast event! You will find out next Sunday! ;)

As for the schedule -

7:30 - 9:00am - Event Registration. **NOTE - If you plan on showing up after 9:00am you NEED to have pre-paid your event registration. If you have not paid in advance, your registration packet cannot be left at will call for you.

8:20 - Announcement & Gates Open. Magic Mountain will make a short announcement to the group and gates will open at 8:25 so you can be at a ride by the 8:30 ERT start time.

8:30 - 10:00am - ERT on Tatsu, Revolution, Viper, and possibly more! (We know, but we aren't telling!) ;)

12:00 - Lunch in the picnic pavilions - Originally we had thought we would need two lunch groups, but instead of breaking up the lunch into two groups, we will break up the backstage tours into 4 groups. If you have registered more than one person, you will automatically be grouped together, but if there are other people you want to be grouped with, please let us know ASAP as everyone will be given different colored wristbands for their group. We will try our best to accommodate everyone.

1:00 - 3:30 - Guided Backstage Tours

4:00 - 7:00 - Presentations in the Magic Moments Theater with a special announcement about night time ERT! You won't want to miss this!

8:30 - 10:30 - Night Time ERT. (**Note - While ERT starts at 8:30, you are welcome to get in line by 8:00, but there may still be members of the public in line until they can clear out the ride.)

A final schedule with more details will be given to you the day of the event.

MOST IMPORTANT!
** Don't forget that daylight savings time starts this day! Please remember to adjust your clocks!

** If you have not pre-paid for the event yet, you *NEED* to arrive before 9:00am. Your registration packet cannot be left at will call if you have not pre-paid for the event. Please make payment the day of the event or you can send us your payment now ($20 per person) via www.paypal.com to account name store@themeparkreview.com

If you have any questions about West Coast Bash, please post them here!

See you on the 9th!
