    If you end up not having much time at MM, just go on Goliath, Colossus, and X and your trip up there will be well worth the time.

    Coming back to the subject of a taxi for a bit:

    Are taxi's paid for per person or per ride, independent of the amount of people travelling? And is there perhaps any bus / subway / whatever station where busses go to LA quit late ( 10 PM or so ), that is near SFMM...anywhere?

    Anyone have a very rough estimate of the cost of a taxi ride?

    Hi all,

    I may have found an answer: Prime Time Shuttle. They offer trips from SFMM to Union Station...60 USD for 2 people, and this is after 10 PM. I can get to Hollywood from Union Station. Anyone have any experience with them? Are they reliable? I sure hope they are

    Take the subway... has multiple stops in Hollywood, and goes straight to Union Station.

    Because some people are coaster enthusiasts

    That's the answer. You need to take the Metro Red Line subway to Union Station, then connect to a Metrolink train that goes north up to Antelope Valley. You won't be going all the way to Antelope Valley though, get off either at Santa Clarita or Newhall station (Newhall will come first), and then take a Santa Clarita Transit bus from there to Magic Mountain. The cost of this is quite cheap, however the timing is a challenge. If you find Metrolink's website, the time schedules are there so you can time this all out. Red line subways run with regularity so don't worry about timing there. I live in Santa Clarita so if you need further help, drop me an email & I'll do what I can from there.

    I thought that the Six Flags Geezer (Mr. Six?), came by and picked up people in his bus.

    Oh no, I can already that music again!

    I haven't been to SFMM in years, but the last time I was there it was a bit on the creepy side. Lots of gang types. I saw two fights break out in lines.
