Hey everyone, for those who care, I noticed that SFMM no longer opens at 10:00am anymore! The last year, the park had been opening at 10:00am on weekends, 10:30am on weekdays. Now the park opens altogether at 10:30am! ... kInfo.aspx

Also, it would appear that the park closes at weird times on some days, like 6:30pm.

So just a heads up. No more trip reports saying that they opened the park 30 minutes late! ::)

^ The tower was an ideal place to put the countdown timer and it must have looked great not only from the ground, but even from the freeway nearby.

I think SFMM has some great years coming. Remember, too, that 2011 is its 40th year, so I imagine something BIG will come then.

Those fireworks look great. It is now my ambition to be at SFMM for the 2011 New Years. Looks fun!

Hi! I've been poking around these forums as a looker but not a poster. And that YouTube video that SFMM100 posted? Haha... THAT'S MY VIDEO!!

What a surprise to see that someone posted it up here and I'm glad you guys like it. I have pictures that I took of that event if you guys would like to see it.

Circle thingys.
A banner!
Have a Magic Day? Trying to be Disney are we now?
One restaurant had souvenir bottles from Kentucky Kingdom. Umm... wrong park.
Besides the Entry Plaza, the rest of the park looked like this. Seriously.
Wave yo hands in the air like ya just don't care.
It's still 2008.
The Flash now has laser vision and Green Lantern is... just... there...
Nothing says cool party like furry characters!
Bugs raises the roof. Or maybe he was being robbed. I'm not sure.
Everyone got a free Coke can that looks like a bottle but it's really a can! Sylvester got one too.
Yayyy! It's 2009!
The Stage.
See? Free Coke.
Happy New Year!
V.I.P.s had the top of the mountain for a private party. And they had a private table of free Cokes.
Main gate. Have a good 2009 K Thx Bai!

Thanks, Churro! Great pictures (and video, haha!), seems like SFMM has something good on their hands. I really like seeing the park doing well and raising the bar in its So Cal presence, and the rest of the industry for that matter.

^ I totally agree, it looks like a great time! I wish I could've gone. At least I'm going in April. I can't wait to see the new park! (the last time I visited was in September of 2007)
