I was just wondering if SFMM could put a SkyScreamer where Thrill Shot was. Since pretty much every other Six Flags park is getting one, why not Magic Mountain.

You never know! Both Six Flags and Cedar Fair have added 5 Sky Screamers and Windseekers in the past 2 years. Personally though, if every park has them in the next few years, they will start to lose their appeal.

Why go to Cedar Point if Six Flags St. Louis has one?

I don't really see magic mountain getting a skyscreamer, at least not in the next few years with a new coaster going in. Plus theres wind seeker to the south which is taller than any of the six flags installations.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Putting in a Sky Screamer would mean SFMM would actually spend some $$ on a new Flat Ride.

Thanks for the replies. My dates are fixed, so it has to be those days. Looks like it'll be Flash Pass!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Entire parking lot is being re-stripped as we speak... does that count as a new flat ride?

I'm not sure, but I'm glad to hear that they're making the theming of the parking lot rides more apparent!

Six Flags
We're loving the idea of "YOLOcoaster" for a <CENSORED> at Magic Mountain. But we wanna know what it means to you. What does it mean to live YOLOcoaster? What does it feel like? Sound like? Look like?! Sound off in the comments section!

Six Flags Magic Mountain is expected to add a terrain-hugging launched roller coaster in 2013 featuring the world's tallest loop, according to an employee who wasn't authorized to speak on behalf of the amusement park.

A Magic Mountain mechanic inadvertently revealed closely guarded facts about the record-setting attraction while casually talking with a group of coaster enthusiasts during the recent West Coast Bash event at the Valencia amusement park. Details of the conversation quickly appeared on the Theme Park Review website and rapidly spread through the online coaster community.

The new multi-launch coaster will be called YOLOcoaster, according to the official Six Flags Facebook page.

YOLOcoaster's record-setting vertical loop is expected to top the Superman: Krypton coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, which holds the current title of world's tallest loop at 145 feet. Magic Mountain's own Viper, with a 144-foot-tall loop, is a close second, according to Roller Coaster Database.

Magic Mountain recently shuttered the 1971 Log Jammer water flume to make way for the 2013 coaster. The wooded six-acre parcel in the center of the park includes a sizable man-made lake that may play a role in the new attraction. YOLOcoaster may also make use of the old monorail tunnel that cuts through the hillside.

Magic Mountain officials declined to comment on the specifics of the mechanic's revelations, saying only that the park does not respond to rumors or speculation. An official announcement on the new 2013 attraction will be made in late summer.

YOLOcoaster would become Magic Mountain's 18th coaster, moving the California park ahead of Ohio's Cedar Point for the title of "Roller Coaster Capital of the World."

So I take it someone just got fired at the park for talking to the enthusiasts and leaking these details. Does this mean latimes got the info form TPR.
