  1. Hello TPR people, it has been awhile since I posted something in this forum, but I recently went to Six Flags Magic Mountain this past Saturday, and rode Full Throttle, wow what a adrenline rush, a great ride and addition to the park, love the FT Plaza Zone, very cool, the new hang out area, and group meeting place. I finally rode Green Lantern, Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom, and Superman: Escape from Krypton as well since my last visit in 2009. I rode all the coasters but 4, Batman, Goldrusher, X2, and Road Runner Express. I didn't ride any of the water rides, you would think I would since it was so hot, but I managed to ride everything else, and stayed until closing. Live Entertainment in the Full Throttle ZOne was loud and inviting. I would like to share with everybody some videos I created this past Saturday at the park, there's 5 of them, so I hope you all enjoy them. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]Full Throttle Nights Music, Live Entertainment, Drummer/Percussionist/FT Dancers [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]Full Throttle Coaster Footage/Queue/Superman Plaza [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]L.A's Party Band Velocity performs in the Full Throttle Plaza Stage area, singing Lady Gaga's Born This Way", Katy Perry's "Fireworks", and I believe a song from Journey "Anyway You Want It", and a fourth song, which you hear all day in line for Full Throttle. The quality isn't the greatest, but at least it's something to watch and hear. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]Photo Gallery Video - Over 200+ photos were taken, some erased and some are not in this video. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]The following videos feature the following coasters and attractions in brief snippets: 1. Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom 2. Green Lantern 3. Full Throttle 4. Gold Rusher 5. Ninja (empty queue only) 6. Tatsu 7. Orient Express That video gave me an idea on what I am planning to do next time, so hopefully you enjoyed the videos. I had fun at Six Flags on Saturday, so I may be going again later this month or next month. Bye _Tim
  2. I am not that impressed with Full Throttle. The ride is too short, and having it stop in the tunnel, launching backwards and forward again is not a smart move on the design aspect of the ride. The train should just automaticcally be accelerated when it flies through the tunnel and continue on it’s journey. Who would want it to stop suddenly in the middle of the ride like that, not me. The loop is the only thing interesting having the trains on top and inside, the rest of the ride is very short, and should be much longer through the terrain.
  3. If it isn't a coaster for 2012 at SFMM, and everyone is hinting it could be a droptower, or starflyer ride, such as "Sky Screamer" at SFDK, and "Windseeker" at Knotts Berry Farm, which possibly it could be, but perhaps a new element for such the ride could be in the works. As for where to build it, well there's the forementioned "Thrill Shot Area", and than there's the "Pistachio Park" area next to Buccaneer. They could also remove the "Swings" and use this space for the 2012 attraction. Photo Credit: Unknown, TPR perhaps. Thrill Shot Area sfmm_2011_030.bmp Pistachio Park Area Swings Sky Screamer at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom..Would there be any room for such a ride as this in those 3 areas mentioned above? COuld this be SFMM 2012 attraction, or something similar?
  4. I thought I would like to share with everyone four videos I recently uploaded to YouTube of my 1997 Six Flags Magic Mountain experience, with my nieces, sister and her husband. Back in 1997, most ride operators didn't care too much if you took your video camera on the ride to film, such as Jet Stream, Log Jammer, Goldrusher, Tidal Wave, Granny Gran Prix, Buccanneer. The day of filming begun at 10:22 a.m. and my camera battery died at 4:27 p.m., however we did stay a couple more hours. In Part 1, the attractions I rode and filmed on were Jet Stream and Goldrusher. The attractions you'll see glimpses of are Viper, Psyclone (including the station area), Dive Devil, and a One Plane Air Show above the area making a lot of noise. In Part 2, the attractions I rode and filmed on are Tidal Wave, Granny Gran Prix, and Buccaneer. The attractions you'll see glimpses of and footage of are Freefall, which I ride..you'll see me, wearing a hat and blue alien shirt, and Superman: The Escape. In Part 3, the attraction I rode was Log Jammer, which concludes in Part 4. The attractions you'll see glimpses of and footage of are: Junior Coaster, which my nieces ride 6 times, because the first time, their lapbar wasn't secured and in place, so they got several more rides becuse of that. My nieces also enjoyed fun on the Tweety Bird Cages, Caterpillar and some Turbo Cars that spin in a circle. Anybody know the name of that ride? They also meet Bugs Bunny himself at the beginning of the video. In Part 4, the attractions I rode were Log Jammer and the Monorail. The attractions seen glimpses of and footage of are Viper, Flashback, Spinout, and the full show of the Looney Tunes Stage Show. I am not sure if this show is still going on, probably not after 14 years, but my nieces enjoyed it. After this, my battery died on my camera. The videos were edited, removed a lot of boring stuff, and some audio which I didn't like. I do have other videos of my experiences and fun at the park on my YouTube Channel of more recent visists, and other home video footage from years back that I haven't dubbed to DVD yet. I thought these videos would be fun for everybody here at TPR to go back in time, and enjoy checking out the park before most rides today didn't exist, such as Deja Vu, Riddler's Revenge, and to see rides that have been removed since 1997, such as Spinout, Freefall, Monorail, Flashback, Psyclone, Granny Gran Prix. I hope you all enjoy the four videos, and I will see what else I can find. July 4th, 1988 Six Flags Video This is footage from my 1988 Six Flags Magic Mountain visit with my parents, brother, and his friend. The attractions I took the camera on were Gold Rusher and Jet Stream. The attractions seen glimpses of, or footage are: Colossus, Sandblasters Bumper Cars, Ninja, Shockwave, Z-Force (great footage), Subway, and Dolphin Show. Some footage was edited, such as the fireworks display show I filmed from the parking lot, not all that interesting. I had to get this video under 15 min. I hope you enjoy this video, especially watching footage of Z-Force, and Shockwave, two coasters no longer at the park. Tim
  5. Though the park has penty of space opportunity to build future attractions, I agree that something could be built where the old Revolution Queue is, a station for a Launch Coaster, as seen in my horrible design image below...The rope is suppose to be the track. I also have a suggestion for a Eurofighter Dive Devil Coaster could be built. In the new DC Universe area. Directly behind the fake building facade and Wonder Woman's Golden Lasso is this building, which could be maintenance, distribution or spare parts area, not sure. Well, if they remove it, and build it elsewhere in this massive lot, depicted in my images, that space could be used for a Eurofighter coaster like that Dive Devil at Six Flags Over Georgia, and the queue entrance and exit, top left. The coaster can be themed to a DC Universe character, which would go along with the themed area, and Green Lantern directly across from it. I know SFMM won't do this perhaps, but it sure would look nice, small water streams, rocks, landscaped really nice. What does everybody think? Proposed Launch Coaster Area
  6. Yes, this website's update will answer your question. www.thecoasterguy.com/index.php/2011/05/29/six-flags-magic-mountains-metro-monorail-arrives-in-hershey-pa/#more-985
  7. You two have a point, and I guess it would be good to have family rides all over the park, instead of having them all bunched up together. That just shows you what I know, because I don't know all that much about other park's layouts, nor do I visit that many theme parks. It's true if built over by Deja Vu, now that I read what you two wrote, it would make perfect sense for families to wonder around the park to get to a family attraction, apposed to just being in one area. Well, maybe SFMM will build a family attraction or maybe that Sky Screamer in that area, that would be cool. Tim
  8. I enjoyed the videos and pictures from yesterday's ribbon ceremony for Road Runner Express, SFMM did an excellent job bringing this coaster to life, from what they previously were going to do with it, great theming, colors, and looks fun for all the young coaster enthusiasts, who can't ride the bigger rides. I think if they did build it as Mr. Six's Dance Coaster next to Deja Vu, on that small little lot, it may not have been that accepted by the GP for being a family coaster, so far from where all the other family and kids rides are located, within Bugs Bunny World, so SFMM did an excellent job ditching that theme, and relocating it in an area, where it would be more accessible for families to enjoy it, as Road Runner Express. Does anybody know what SFMM plan on building on that dirt lot next to Deja Vu? I know many hope they build a new flat ride, maybe something like that Sky SCreamer or Wind Seeker. I think if they built such an attraction in that area, more of that hillside would have to be removed, but I am no expect in architectural design when it comes to Theme Parks, but hopefully something nice for 2012. I can't wait for the opening for Green Lantern next month, and see what they did to the old Batman backlot (rethemed as DC Universe), should be exciting for everybody here at TPR. Tim
  9. Wow, this looks like a fun coaster. I would love to see Six Flags Magic Mountain build this ride maybe for 2012. It's like Freefall, but an actual coaster, with lots of twists and sharp turns. I like the tunnel, but if SFMM has one built, I would like to see it dive underground and pop up from the other side, and a longer, darker tunnel. It looks fun, great design.
  10. Road Runner Express Now Testing...This was posted by 'In the Parks' 16 hours ago on the Six Flags Magic Mountain Facebook page.
  11. I watched the LIVE webcast today from Disneyland for the ceremony for Star Tours, awesome presentation. I wish I was there, but hopefully sometime this summer I'll find time to visit and ride it. I never rode the original Star Tours, but I am sure this new one is 100x better, I can't wait. I actually recorded the 28 minute presentation using my digital camera off my computer monitor stationary, the quality isn't superb from the original broadcast, but for those who haven't seen it yet, I cut it in two videos, so please enjoy.. I hope these videos are okay to post, if not..a moderator can kindly remove them from this post, and you can basically just go to my youtube page to watch them. www.youtube.com/cloneh38 Tim
  12. Part 2 of my Interpreted design where I am thinking the GL queue might be integrated around the new ride. You enter from the right, the queue wraps behind GL and heads straight to the station, which I am assuming going up stairs. I could be wrong, but I believe that small structure in the corner nearest to the Batman: The Ride queue will be the Photo Pick-Up Station or Lockers. It's my guess. We'll see if I am correct with what I designed below for the GL queue. You can view the first half and what I believe could be the entrance on page 1816. What does everybdy think? Is it plausible this could be the layout, or could be be completely different? I assembled both images into one, but I agree now that there would have to be two exits, I didn't think about that, but we'll see how it turns out from what I created here. ASSEMBLED IMAGES Well, something is being built in the far corner where I assume could be the lockers, however it might be the pick-up photo image' area as you exit. The lockers for Apocalypse are actually located in the exit area, and before guests enter the main queue for the ride, so I assume it might be the same with GL, we'll see once they begin exterior work on GL. All the track should be completed by mid-afternoon on Monday. Tim

  14. GL is looking good from the most recent pictures. I am sure by Monday all the track should be completed, should be interesting. I think the queue may go right to left, beginning where the fake building facade is located, go directly behind GL, and clearly head to the left of GL, near Batman: The Ride, and head toward the station. I know they will need a lot of room for the queue, since the day it opens, it will be crowded, unless they use some of Batman: The Ride's queue for GL on a temporary basis, since that ride's queue isn't all that packed. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I am excited to ride this myself in June. Keep the pictures coming, and it's great that the official facebook page added a couple, and that video..very nice. That entire backlot will look so different once it opens, so many changes aplenty I am sure. Tim
  15. Is it possible for somebody who visits SFMM on a frequent basis to get some good shots of Green Lantern Construction on Tidal Wave going up the lift, or perhaps stand on that bridge, and get some shots there? Great pictures so far. That's weird how they moved the Grinder Gearworks Spinner to the walkway for renovations and repair..a crane obviously. I am excited to see what changes they will execute in this area come June, renaming it DC Universe. This area will eventually be one of the crowded areas once Green Lantern opens.
