It used to be that DL
didn't issue enough fast passes now it's just the opposite. They are
issuing way too many. So many it's enough to make the fast pass lines
almost as long as the stand by. So if you use the stand by your wait
will be twice as long.
I received the absolute
worst service at the Golden Horseshoe. There was only one guy running
the counter and three other workers just chatting away. Needless to say
the line was to the door. Tsk, tsk.
World 9/06 I went to Disney
World for my honeymoon Back in September. I'm sorry to say Disney fans,
The Magic Kingdom is a cheap imitation of Disneyland. with all that land
you'd think they'd make it better. I do give kudos to WDW Tomorrowland. It
was like Disneyland's used to be. The Magic Kingdoms Ques were very nice.
However their boats and Omnimovers were made of plastic. Main St. and the
Castle were very impressive.
MGM studios was another disappointment. That was California
Adventure with a different name. I'm sure we all think that park should be
turned back into parking lot.
Epcot was good, too big but good.
Animal Kingdom was lush and very beautiful. Everest was awesome!
Knott's Berry Farm CA. 10/ 06
Halloween Haunt way to overcrowded. They need to relocate
some of their storage areas because their putting rides on top of each
other and removing historical scenery. Knott's is still a good deal, all
Magic Mountain CA. 2006
Tatsu is a fun ride till you get to the inverted loop an
the end. It feels like your going to disemboweled and have Aneurysm at the
same time. Ride it twice and your done for a while. However the view is
incredible. It's an eyesore to look at, and Valencia falls still aren't
Magic Mountain CA. Dec. 2006-Jan. 2007
Disney merchandise in all the shops. Is that how you draw
in families, by selling the Devil's goods?
In December I couldn't find a Jacket anywhere in the park. In the
California dessert in the wintertime it's damn cold especially when the
sun goes down. There was not one jacket in the whole park. The funny thing
is, that in July and It's over 100 degrees, there's jackets everywhere you

Ok, I happen to think the Foreign exchange program is a
good thing. I believe it adds color, diversity, and a continental feel to
the park. However on this last trip one of the kiddie park operators
couldn't speak one word of English all she knew how to do was close the
gate open the gate and press the red & green buttons. That doesn't make me
feel safe. My Niece lost her hat, needless to say hilarity didn't ensue.
The second experience I had was on the photo booth for the same ride. The
guy could speak a little more English than the other girl, but had no idea
about the photo card or how to do simple transactions. He tried to give
back way to much change, even after I corrected him. Come on, Six Flags,
I'm trying to help you out, but you've got to give me something to work
with. Why not put a little cash into a training department. Don't just
throw the foreign kids to the wolves on their first day.

Ok, I said this a couple of years ago. For the parks 35th
anniversary Revolution should have been overhauled. The coaster is now,
way too painful to ride. Starting with the ear busting shoulder restraints
and unnecessary brakes that were added years ago. I now fear the ride is
suffering from a bad case of square wheels. Please, Six Flags, restore
this historic coaster to its former glory, like Disney did with Space
Great America Santa Clara, CA. 8/05/07
I wanted to go to Great America with my wife in September
for vacation this year, but it appears that their regular season is going
to end on August 27th. What the heck? Is this the way Cedar Fair is going
to start their first year at Great America? This is California not Ohio.
We still have plenty of warm weather until October and not all schools are
back in session in August. There are still plenty of people on vacation
until September. Six Flags is farther north and they got it right.
I see that they're season passes are still regular price. What kind of
jerk would by a season pass now, it's over. I've noticed alot of
inconsistencies' in Cedar Fair's Season Passes. For one you pay a lot more
if you buy a California Maxx pass at Knott's Berry Farm yet you can't go
the whole month of October unless you want to leave by 5:30. The cost of
living in San Jose and Buena Park is about the same. Shame on you Cedar
Fair, shame on you. Ending the season early won't help the financial
problem you're in.
Not to sound like they aren't open at all after August, Great America will
be open weekends and holidays until mid November.
Knott's Berry Farm & Magic Mountain CA.
Very disappointed in the Halloween festivities this year.
See the Halloween Special page for the details and pictures.
Walt Disney World Resort. 09/06
We stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter. The Service was
excellent and the staff was super friendly. You won't get that kind of
service at the California Parks. The rooms were very nice and the hotel
was thoughtfully laid out. I also have to mention that the food was
reasonably cheap, everywhere. If you go definitely use the Magical Express
service. Its a painless way to travel.
Magic Mountain CA. 2006/ 2007
Park has been cleaned up, it's finally getting some much
needed maintenance. Characters and staff everywhere.
Freefall operating again after how many years?

Psyclone removed, I have Photos!!!!
Orient Express is back! photos posted.
Ninja gets some new track and a paint job! photos posted.
SF Discovery Kingdom CA. May 27th 2007
Watch out, Sea World and Disney! Six Flags has your number
and they're dialing. If Discovery Kingdom is the prototype of things to
come at Six Flags Parks, Then you're in real trouble. I was very impressed
with the new stuff at Discovery Kingdom. The Park was already Beautiful.
Now they're taking the theming thing seriously. I happened to go on a 3
day weekend so needless to say I was in stroller hell. The crowds couldn't
keep me from noticing all the cool new stuff they added. If your reading
this check out the Discovery Kingdom page. To all, Definitely Check this
park out, you won't be sorry!
Magic Mountain CA. June 26th 2007
Good day at Magic Mountain. Walked on all the rides, trams
look so much better.
Knott's Berry Farm CA. October 26th 2007
Very Impressed by new ride Timberline Twister. Very fun
from beginning to end. Unfortunately it's very short. But seeing yourself
on video while on the ride was priceless.
Magic Mountain CA. 10/31/07
Walked on all the rides. This was the first day I've ever
seen the popular rides like Riddler's Revenge or Batman and Scream run
empty trains. That was freaking awesome! Let me tell you Wonder Woman was
hot! she has a beautiful patriotic caboose, if you know what I mean. I
took some pictures. I wanted to take more, but, I felt like I was
stalking. So, maybe next time. Look for pictures coming up soon.
