Here's a few shots of the renovated candy shop near Apocalypse and WCR. The area where they will be making candy will be ready later on. It's just boarded up at the moment. Place looks great. Especially from the last time I saw it during a construction tour where it was totally gutted, walls and all.

SFMM pushed out an email this morning with this announcement:

Exclusive Preview on West Coast Racers
We're giving our Members and Season Pass Holders a sneak peek of the most anticipated new coaster before it opens to the public! On December​ 21 and 22, West Coast Racers will open exclusively for Gold Plus, Platinum, Diamond, and Diamond Elite Members from 10:30 a.​m. to 9 p.​m.

Then, all Season Pass Holders and Members will enjoy a preview of the ride on December​ 23-31 from 10:30 a.​m. to 7 p.​m. and January​ 1-5 from 10:30 a.​m. to 6 p.​m. Just present your valid Pass card at the ride entrance and get ready to race. These are previews and due to maintenance and other circumstances, West Coast Racers may not be available at certain times.


I can't wait to check out this ride and explore the full area once they get it all open.

New for 2019 after all!

Although I bet they advertise it as new next year as well.

seems like it's just to satisfy members and pass holders so they don't ask for a refund.

I may have mentioned it already here, but the big Winter Break starts on Dec 21 for most schools, so I suspected if it were to open this year, it'd be around then. Little did I know I was right on the nose!

It appears you can't ride WCR without some sort of pass/membership (aka a normal, ticket-buying guest) until 2020, so maybe the jury is still out on if it "opens" in 2019 or not. ;) :lol:

On December 23-January 5, West Coast Racers is open to members and pass holders until 6 or 7. However, the park is open until 8 or 9 each night. Are they going to open West Coast Racers to all for that final 1-2 hours?

^I assume they'll just run the line out and not open it to the public.
