Hearing on MC that ST-TAC was doing a soft opening on Friday afternoon, I braved traffic from my home in the San Fernando Valley (almost two hours with Friday gridlock) and got to the park about 7:15 p.m. - a little over an hour after the attraction was closed for the day. Hung out the entire evening hoping it might reopen, but it never did.
Saturday night, after going to a play and dinner with friends, I checked Mouse Wait on my iPhone and saw that ST-TAC was back open with only a 40 minute wait. I headed down to the park again, ducked in the gate about 11:50 p.m. and missed "last call" for the attraction by 10 - 15 minutes, according to the CM stationed out front.
Totally "star" crossed, as it were.
So, what's your ST-TAC near-miss story?
