    Re: Never Coming Back.

    ^ I've been to the park more than most non-employees the last 2 1/2 years (40 times) and I've NEVER seen the PD out in full force. This includes weekends, Fright Fest, Special Events, Concerts, etc.

    Yes, the park isn't perfect, but please don't state second-hand statements as fact. It's simply not true.

      I see. Well I did say that my last visit was back in 2004 and there was a riot that day. So my last visit was a bad one as far as that goes.

      But I also said that it probably has changed since then. I wouldn't know I haven't been there since 2004. But I will admit to saying my "fact" you are refering to is highly based on my last visit and what I have heard or seen on news. So I will claim it to be more opinion I suppose if that makes you feel better.

      Bottom line...I would not go back there personally, myself.

      Ta Da!

          I love the rides there but yes it is a bit of a downgrade from Disney...that's for sure...we love thrill rides though and Disney just doesn't have enough of them...and the ones they have are so scattered it takes a lot of walking to ride them.

          And lets not even discuss price...Disney is getting ridiculous.....especially with not offering payment options to out of state people who probably go more than some California residents.

            Hey, I was just looking over at magic mountain's website, but the "buy at least 3 days in advance" tickets aren't available. Where are they? I couldn't buy one in September because they expired on the 30th of that month. But where are they now? Are they going to force me to buy a Fright Night Ticket?

            If that's the case....

              ^ Yeah, looks like the $44.99 ticket is the best one right now.

              If you are doing all day/all night though, the "Monster Pack" looks like a great value for $91.94. Includes Admission, Fright Fest Express pass ($25), Fright Feast ($25) and parking ($17). Overall you save about $20.

                I've come to terms with the fact that you go to Magic Mountain for rides, there is no Disney wow factor to the rides ques, the buildings, or restaurants. It's like going to a County Fair, buy a corn dog ride the ferris wheel and then get the heck outta dodge.

                  I'm pretty much the same way. Lately I only go when they get a big new ride (or after they've gotten a few big new rides) and they seem to make some effort around those times. I'm actually looking forward to Full Throttle.

                    Went to the park for a bit today (HUGE park update coming later this week ... smaller one tomorrow) and I actually had a nice day just wandering around the park. Only rode Sky Tower, Ninja, Colossus and Slingshot but I actually had a nice few hours in the park. Wasn't that busy, didn't notice any issues with any guests or rides, etc.

                      The park is regressing back to its 2005/2006 state.

                      Its a shame too because from 2007-2010 the park made some great strides in guest service and cleanliness.
                      Well, it seems like nothing's really changed since the nineties then. 97' was the last time I went to the park. At least it seems like the clusters of gangsters have become non-apparent. +1 for progress!

                        never visited myself, but theme parks should always be clean
                        The new Star Wars plot summery:

                        Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

                        Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

                        Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).
