So I have one free day this weekend (Saturday) to do either SFMM or Knott's...which one do you think will be less crowded? I'll be heading over to one of the parks around 11am, after I tour the Disney Studios in Burbank.

Thanks for any input, and for those of you who read the SFMM thread, yes I posted in there too, so I apologize for the double post- I just figured I could get more replies by posting in both.

But to contribute to the thread, I do think the glasses policy is weird...but then again, it is true that California has the strictest safety restrictions...I wear contact lenses, but it's good to know that I'll be riding Xcelerator with blurred vision if I ever come to the park with glasses on haha

To be honest, If your going to be in Burbank first, Magic Mountain is less of a drive than Knott's is. However Knott's probably will be less crowded, is cheaper, but not as thrilling. I say if you're up for the drive do both...

Just went onto the Knott's website to look for something and saw the following Note:

An Important Message From the Park:
Knott's Berry Farm will be CLOSED for a private event on Saturday September 4th. Knott's Soak City will be open from 10am to 7pm.

Wow, closing the park down on a HOLIDAY weekend Saturday must have cost somebody a pretty-penny.

Yea.

That's weird. Probaly not the best date to close the park to the public. Not eveyone checks the website before going to the park. I am sure there are going to be a few upset people.

In case anybody still has a jones for chocolate bacon funnel cake, they sell it at the Pinks outside Knott's, for now at least. It's the funnel cake that won't die.

Thats an interesting picture cause Its taken from backstage right behind the Mystery Lodge's main building. There isn't much room back there at all without moving a lot of stuff around, so I wonder if the picture is supposed to show the skyline and what will be there soon, or if the location of the photo has anything to do with the new ride.

With the whole glasses issue, would you be able to ride if you put them in a glass case that's in your pocket that is tied to one of your belt loops? That's what I do since my glasses cost over 130 (prescription with anti glare and transition lenses.)

Thankfully im not blind, I just can't read anything more then 50 feet away depending on size of text of course.

The glasses may not be worn and have to be secured.

My honest opinion about the picture...it has to do with the skyline, not the location
