    Park Employees and others, could use your help on Saturday, June 10th

    Lisa (Deogge's Mom) and I came up with this idea a few months ago, and it looks like things are on track for us to attempt this...

    11 Roller Coasters, 11 Parks, One Day....

    Right now, here is our plan...

    Starting at park opening (10 AM) at Six Flags Magic Mountain (using our SP's), using our Flash Passes, ride either Tatsu, Viper or Goliath

    Then straight to USH (AP's) and Revenge of the Mummy, parking in Jurassic.

    Then off to the Santa Monica Pier (pay cash) and Pacific Park and West Coaster

    Then to Knott's (AP's) and Silver Bullet or Xcelerator, maybe also do the Pacific Spin at Soak City if we can get to the front of the line. (That would make 12 parks)

    Then Adventure City (pay cash) and Freeway Coaster.

    Then Disneyland (AP's) and Space Mountain or BTMRR (back up in case one is 101)

    And then DCA to Screamin' or Mulholland Madness

    Next is LEGOLAND (buying AP's next week), thinking Coastersaurus or Technic since they are roller coasters instead of the RoboCoaster. This is a key point in the schedule, since the park closes at 7 PM.

    And then the San Diego County Fair (aka Del Mar Fair) opens on June 10th, $1 admission and about $4.25 each to ride either the Hi Miler or the Crazy Mouse.

    Then SeaWorld San Diego (AP's) and Journey to Atlantis (closes at 11 PM)

    And then Belmont Park (pay cash), the Giant Dipper that closes at Midnight...

    And of course, the Coaster Saloon after the rides are over...

    So what are we looking for, well, access to close up parking to the locations, and Front of the Line passes will help. We would love to get it done in 11 hours, but think that is unlikely... (I have it at 13 hours)

    What do we think will happen...

    SFMM, get there around 9:30, leave around 10:30....

    USH, arrive around 11, get out by Noon

    Pacific Park, arrive around 12:45 (taking the 405 South (Carpool lanes) to the 10, leaving around 1:30

    Knott's around 2:30 and out by 3:15

    Adventure City, 3:30 to 4

    Disney, 4:15 to 5:30 (Parking in DtD)

    Legoland, 6:15 to 7 PM

    Del Mar Fair, 7:30 to 9 PM

    SeaWorld, 9:30 to 10:30 PM

    Belmont Park, 11 PM, leaving an hour to spare.

    So any help would be great, and should make a fun photo story/article.

    Love to hear your comments about the two of us going crazy for a day...

    ^I do, but at 9 PM at night, the parking is a free for all, heck, during the off-season weekdays, the parking is free-for-all starting around noon.

    If you want close up parking at SFMM, you should be at the toll gate at 9:00. As far as front of line passes...nothing I can help with, even though it is not on your flow sheet, your best be for SFMM is to ride revolution. It is the closest to the front gate, and every one will be running to Tatsu, which will still be finishing block check. Good luck!

    Yeah DB ... as far as SFMM is concerned ... just go for whatever ride is testing while you are waiting for 10am. This will be Viper, Revolution or possibly Scream.

    I know there is drop-off parking at SFMM but I don't know how long that gives you. Not sure if it will give you enough time to run in, get your ride and get out.

    45 minutes from DL to Legoland ... on a Saturday??? Good luck with that one.

    Disney, 4:15 to 5:30 (Parking in DtD)

    Legoland, 6:15 to 7 PM
    Is that possible? Isn't Carlsbad well over an hour from Disneyland?

    The distance is about 60 miles.

    But the plan is to use the carpool lane from Anaheim to San Clemente, then there is about 20 to 30 miles thru Camp Pendleton which is usually very light, and traffic usually goes about 80 MPH.

    LEGOLAND is a linchpin, as the park closes at 7 PM, but if we don't make it, we have a chance to hit 10 coasters with time to spare, as both the Del Mar Fair and the Giant Dipper closes at Midnight, and SeaWorld closes at 11 PM.

    You could park in the 15 minute lot at Disneyland. Or across the street at Denny's or IHOP. :P (That might save you a bit of walking time--and no DTD distractions)

    I though about those options (and the McDonald's lot, or HoJo's, where I know I would have permission of the hotel), but...

    I think it will be between 45 minutes to an hour, which makes me worry about the 15 minute lot.

    Here is the DLR plan right now, park in DtD, take the Monorail to Tomorrowland, meet up with someone who got FASTPASSes earlier in the day, ride Space Mountain (BTMRR is the back-up if Space is 101), then go down Main Street (hopefully avoiding the Parade, otherwise through the stores), across the Main Entry Plaza to DCA, off to Screamin' (Mulholland Madness is the back-up) (The goal is to have friends get FP's for all 4 rides), then go thru the GCH exit to go back to DtD and the car.

    I am in awe just for you trying. Good luck.

    BTW, shouldn't you be doing this on Sunday? 11 coasters, 11 hours, on the 11th?
