i am going to LA this October and plan to go to SF Magic Mountain on Sunday 17.
Can anyone tell me if it's too crowded this month?
Should I get the Flash Pass? Gold or Platinum? Online or not?
Can I get into X2 with Platinum as well?

Please help me!!!

Considering it'll be a Sunday in October it shouldn't be that crowded at all. You can buy a Flash Pass within the park that you can use on pretty much all the big rides in the park (Terminator, X-2, Tatsu, etc.)I'd say just go and see how long the lines are, then you can decide whether to buy a pass or not.

^Just to clarify, X2 and Terminator can be used with Flash Pass but not like the other rides. You must reserve a time to visit either in advance and pay $10 per person per ride for Terminator and $20 per person per ride on X2.
