You guys think today will be crowded? I think it will be moderate crowds until Fright Fest starts. Then it will get packed. Hope it isn't too bad, I really want to ride some coasters and do all of the mazes.

Hey everyone!

Here is a little quick update from our visit tonight. Hanno was in town and we were at the park from 5:30 to 10:30 and managed to do every coaster in the park except for X2 thanks to lighter crowds on some coasters and Flash Passes on the others! We'll go tomorrow morning and get in X2.

We even did 3 mazes and stopped for food!

I don't have many photos from today's visit but they are some very "interesting" photos of what is going on over in Psyclone's old spot.

First a few pros and cons from tonight's visit....

=) PRO - Scream!'s crew running three trains VERY efficiently today!
:( CON - Viper's crew running three trains very, very poorly.

=) PRO - Brutal Planet was great once again!
:( CON - We were off sync in Willoughby's and missed almost every gag. (Not their fault, though)

=) PRO - The pretzels at the Soda Shack!
:( CON - The worst Johnny Rocket's burger I've ever had. (And I've had some GREAT ones at SFMM.)

=) PRO - Backwards Colossus in the very back seat!
:( CON - Backwards Colossus just about anywhere else. (ok this one is more of a joke!)

=) PRO - Flash Passes for Fright Fest mazes!
:( CON - Having to explain to the ESP crew what they were. (They took our tickets and told us to go stand in the normal line!)

=) PRO - Tatsu's Flash Pass Line being efficient!
:( CON - Deja Vu's single riders line being closed.

=) PRO - Magic Mountain cures Jetlag! (Says Hanno)
=) PRO - Hanging out with Brent, Antonio & Family!
=) PRO - Very good "vibe" tonight!
=) PRO - It was a great night at the Mountain!

Onto some construction photos....
There is a path being cleared for something here...
AHA!!!! In this photo there is a clue that absolutely CONFIRMS what they are building!!!!
OMG! It's GOLIATH 2!!!
Hmm...I see a stack of wooden things behind that tree...
Yeah, yeah...wood stacks...we know! We saw this last update!
Kinda looks like a staging area for something (Whale space portal, anyone?)
Ahh, two trucks in love....
First the orange flags now someone has gone CRAAAAAZY with the orange spray paint!
Yes, it's a box with a ladder...nothing to see here!
Maybe it's going to be a football field? That's what Six Flags New England got in their giant empty space this year! ;)
Ooooh! From the Sky Tower you can clearly see what those stacks of wooden things are!
Ohh, mistake...nothing to get BENT out of shape over!

Until next time....

I find the second to last photo the most interesting. Is that the outline of the new coaster?

The classic!

I agree with Hanno on the jetlag bit. I live in Australia and whenever I travel to the US (either through LA or SF) I land, check into my hotel, pick up a hire car and hit a theme park. My favourite is SFMM.

"GOLIATH 2",??? No, you fool! Can't you see it's obviously gonna be "Dumpster-the ride"?! :airtime:

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but the new coaster is going to be themed to the Terminator movies (I think the newest one with Christian Bale). I've seen this on other sites.

Has the park set a date for the Official Announcement on the coaster? Or have they already?
