    How crowded..?

    We are going to Six Flags MM this weekend (Sat and Sun) and I was wondering if I should expect large crowds or half empty park.. I have seen both and I of course prefer half empty.. Also The hubby is going on coasters for like the first time.. should I start him off wild via X2 or slow via collasus..

    I doubt that you will find a half empty park though the crowds will be nowhere near Disneyland's on those same days. Sunday will probably be the lighter of the two days.

    By "hubby" going on coasters for the first time, do you mean SFMM's coasters or coasters in general? Either way, I would just start off easy with Gold Rusher, Ninja and Revolution.

    For Saturday, I'd recommend buying either the regular or gold flashpasses as it's likely that most of the major coasters will have waits of at least an hour and in X2's case 2 hours.

    Rex, here are what I would consider average wait times for a Sat. at SFMM

    X2 - anywhere from 45-150 minutes
    Tatsu - 15-45 min.
    Viper 15 min. or less
    Revolution 10 min or less
    Colossus 10 min or less
    Goliath 15 min or less
    Superman 15-45 min
    Ninja 15 min or less
    Gold Rusher 5 min
    Jet Stream 5 min
    Log Jammer 10 min or less
    Riddler's Revenge 15-45 min
    Batman 15-45 min

    Saturday's going to be really crowded at SFMM. Sunday will be less crowded, but still pretty full.

    thanks for the information.

    hmmm. seems like you could do most of the rides like a piece of cake compare to disney on a weekend. however I shouldn't underestimate the crowds though.

    Re: How crowded..?

    Recently during spring break days (both this and last week), X2 has had extremely long wait times like more than 180 mins, I don;t usually go on the weekends so I can't speak to that but, its going to be a really nice warm weekend....

    If you are not thinking about buying the $10 Gold flashpass add on for the X2 reservation and you want to ride X2, you really should try to get to the park before opening and run to X2 and wait. X2 usually is tested and open by 11am, so even if you are at the front of the line its going to be close to 11:30am before you get on.

    X2 and Tatsu will be the longest waits. Even when those are 60mins+ the rest are less than 30mins

    FYI, today is Hallelujah Jubilee, always one of the busiest days of the year. Sorry.

    Tomorrow probably won't be too bad. At least I hope not since were going to get our last pass of 2009 processed.
