Magic Mountain!

We made our first trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain over the weekend and are so glad that we bought the season passes! We left early on Friday morning around 5:30am and arrived at the park at 11:30am. They only had the first parking lot open and it wasn't even full yet so we knew that there would be short lines, and boy were we right. Are longest wait wasn't even fifteen minutes, and some rides we walked right on twice. We took a break for lunch but were quickly back on the rides. With no lines we were able to get in a lot of rides and by 8:00pm we were ready to get off our feet.

We left the park and grabbed some burgers on the way to our hotel. The place was your typical $45 a night joint, but we were so tired that it didn't matter too much. The next morning I opened my birthday presents from Teresa and enjoyed the free continental breakfast. They had fresh waffels, cereal, toast, milk and juice. We decided that this was were they spent the majority of our $45.

We hurried to get to the park, but when we saw that our freeway offramp was backup a 1/4 mile our hopes of having short lines again quickly vanished as reality set in. We were able to ride a couple of rides that we had missed on Friday, but then we spent alomst 2 hours in line for Tatsu. We started to question our sanity as our wait in line passed the one hour mark, but as the ride was ending we decided that it was definitly worth the wait.

Knowing that we still had to drive back to Phoenix that night we suffered through the 100 plus degree temperature with no water rides. We just couldn't bring ourselves to get wet for the ride home. Around 3:30pm on Saturday we got back into the car for the next 7 hours, and finally made it home around 11:00pm. We had so much fun and are planning to make another trip as soon as we can.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your birthday. I guess that means you didn't find the faulty restraint on Scream... That kinda puts a damper on your day.

I think you guys need to plan another trip to Magic Mountain in June or July so I can come with you. I am a season pass holder now too! Let me know if you have any plans in the near future.
