Long lines in September weekends?

Six Flags Magic Mountain: Should we expect long lines on September 12th (Saturday)? Can we leave the backpack near the lockers and not inside?

Hi All,

We will be visiting Magic Mountain on September 12th (Saturday).
Should we expect long lines and need a flash pass or should the lines be normal?
Labor day is on the 9/7, heard that after it, lines tend to get shorter.

Another thing about a backpack, is it mandatory to keep it in a locker on some of the rides or if we have nothing important inside we can leave it on the floor or near the lockers?

Any thoughts?

You should expect huge lines on that day. You might want to purchase a flash pass. The only problem you will have with that is you have to pay 10 dollars each to ride X2 and Terminator when you use flash pass. And you should get a locker for your backpack they don't cost that much. Make sure you ride Tatsu and X2! They are must rides. Have fun!

People in another forum answered me that the lines shouldn't be too long since labor day has passed.
Thanks for your opinion.
