  1. Hey, does anyone know how the no rehire status works? I got fired back in June 2011. I was interested in reapplying at the park, this time in a different role in human resources, not as a ride operator. It actually relates to my major and what I would like to do later down the line after I graduate. I assume I still have no rehire status because I tried going through the application process for this job and as soon as I inputted my personal details, my application process was abruptly ended. Anyone know when my rehire status will be reopened for consideration? Do I even have a shot at this job considering I've been fired in a role of employment already at Magic Mountain? Thanks.
  2. ^ I agree with this. Though, I tend to skip X2 and go to Tatsu first then get multiple rides of Deja Vu and Termy. But I just laugh at the thought of people waiting 10-30 minutes for Revolution and Viper. Every time I go to Six Flags and make an observation, people ride these rides first.... what a complete waste of time, I think. You can catch them as walk ons later on in the day..... goes to show that many people go for the ride they see first.
  3. I like having my head slammed against the head rest and my legs broken by riding X2 in the back, courtesy of raven turn #2. Thanks.
  4. What's wrong with that? That's like saying that being that I live in America I shouldn't question or criticize the government. Isn't this the same concept?
  5. Superman the Escape, Revolution, Colossus are all as bad if not worse, and I think Batman is the worst invert I have been on. Needless to say I don't agree with your statement. Revolution is horrible. That I agree with. But lately I've been liking Superman and really Colossus. In the past I would have been happy to tear Superman down, but now I'm starting to like the simplicity of the ride, pending I get to it with no line (no wait). Just because I'm so tired of inversions. Colossus is great for me. I'd put it in my top 5 of roller coasters here (as of this year) when I'm sitting in the back row. The front row is horrible. But the back is awesome. You may get off one of them with a cracked cell phone screen aka Colossus.
  6. I agree. There's nothing that is SPECIAL about this park (from the standpoint of the type of rollercoasters that are built here). Not to discount the significance of some of the rides (might I add however). Yes, it has a lot of coasters. But there is nothing quite unique (aside from X2). Then again, X2 is so rough for me (and starting to get boring) that I don't like it as much as it is praised by everyone. I would trade Six Flags Magic Mountain for Great Adventure. Now, that park may not have as much variety as us, but they sure got unique, and top tier roller coasters. This park is great, but there's nothing top tier about it. I don't like inversions either.... inversions are starting to make me sick. What sucks is there are too many rides with inversions here. * Disclaimer -Take my comments for what they are worth --- I've been visiting Six Flags MM on and off for the last 10 years.
  7. Hey guys, Do any of you think we're going to get something special next year? I'm not talking about the obvious, Mr. Six.
  8. August is not bad. If you go on the weekdays of August you won't have to worry about crowds too much. July is the worst of the three months, June---July--August, in my experience. I'd recommend you go sometime in the middle of /late August. Sometime around there. Just avoid Saturdays. Sundays aren't bad. Don't waste your money on a flash pass, like other people tell you to. You can get re-rides on Tatsu, Deja Vu, and Terminator in the morning if you wish by going with those three as your first rides for the day. You can easily get re-rides on the rest of the rides there any time of the day, excluding X2. I usually save X2 for last and if there's time left over (there always is) I may fit in a second ride of it or additional re-rides of the other rides. But I don't care for re-rides on X2 personally, so I go ride Goliath again hehe.
  9. Yes. It does. It also says Six Flags Great Adventure, where it is currently in operation. After telling the employee that, he looked, and then he told me that "I'm right."
  10. Went to Magic Mountain today. Both of X2's trains had working audio. Don't know if this was a question for anyone. Highlights for the day: Someone threw up on Riddler's. They threw up all over the train.....in their row. So ride operators housed the train down and then did not let anyone board the train for some time. I went up into the sky tower today. I got in an argument with an employee over the model of the roller coaster, Great American Scream Machine. If you guys have seen the model they have of the ride in the sky tower, you'll know what I'm talking about. Pretty much my debate was that it was a variant of our Viper. He told me that it was the Scream! we have! LMAO!!! Pretty good day at the mountain. No need for a flash pass. Got all the rides in by 6pm. Went to Tatsu first.
  11. Not if you get to park early, before opening and hit up Tatsu---Deja Vu--Terminator with re-rides on the latter two at one's discretion. Get them all out the way for the day with minimal waits if you know what I'm saying.
  12. I think it would be a cool idea. Have trips to Six Flags Magic Mountain or Knotts for example. We're not too far from SFMM (less than 20 minutes I'd say).
  13. The Kingda Ka and Intimidator 305 clones that they're planning on building at our park next year. Duh!
  14. Have you guys been seeing those Six Flags commercials lately? Roller coasters. Roller coasters. Roller coasters. More roller coasters. More coasters. More fun! Of course... I'm loving it because I would want them to focus on roller coasters and to possibly build only roller coasters for the foreseeable future, but we are all aware that that may not be the greatest strategy. (No need for a lecture).
  15. Does that sound geeky or what? I wish there was a roller coaster club at my college, but unfortunately there is not. Thinking of starting one, but then again, I'm not the most knowledgeable on roller coasters.
  16. I don't know why they closed it and I don't know if they intend on opening it again. But I must add that it doesn't make a lot of sense to incur an additional expense in tearing it down. So just leave it as is. It's not even really noticeable anyway.
  17. I don't have a problem with the train advertisements. I think you're just overreacting honestly. It's not like it takes away from the ride or ride experience.... at all.
  18. Is there anyone with considerable experience to discourage one from embarking on a cross-country, roller coaster road trip? Is there anyone with an experience of a roller coaster road trip they found rewarding and highly enjoyable? I've been fixated on the idea of embarking on one since last year, because I would like to experience what our country has to offer with a few friends (1-3 others), document my experience for my records, and develop an experience that I can share with others. I've been putting away funds toward it; so far I have $850 of funds set aside. I reckon this could be a possibility perhaps during summer 2011 or 2012, if I am accompanied by friends who can contribute their share toward the trip. Do you think it is reasonable to conduct a roller coaster road trip, with the intention of visiting the below listed parks, in one month? If not, how about two months? What others parks (not including ones mentioned below) would you visit if you could embark on your own roller coaster road trip? Why? For those who have embarked on a roller coaster road trip? How was your experience? Are there things that you would have done differently if you could try it again? My park visit wish list is by no means complete. If the possibility of doing this one day turns out to be highly probable, I will do a lot of extensive research and planning. But for now, here's some of the parks I came up with: Definite park visit list: Six Flags Over Georgia Six Flags Over Texas Six Flags Great America Six Flags Great Adventure Six Flags America Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Universal Studios Orlando Resort Busch Gardens Europe Kings Dominion Kings Island Cedar Point Dollywood Carowinds Hershey Park Dorney Park California's Great America Possible additions to list Six Flags New England Six Flags Fiesta Texas Six Flags St. Louis Busch Gardens Africa ------------------------------------------- I have an idea of starting in Southern California and moving toward Texas on Interstate 40. Then I would like, after visiting Six Flags Great America, to take Interstate 80 back to California.
  19. 1. Goliath 2. X2 3. Tatsu 4. Deja Vu 5. Riddler's Revenge 6. Colossus 7. Scream! 8. Terminator Salvation: The Ride 9. Viper 10. Superman: The Escape 11. Ninja 12. Goldrusher 13.

Deja Vu climbed to #4 Superman climbed!! Goliath remained at #1
  20. People might hate me for this comment, but I think Colossus is a lot better than Terminator. I'm a drops guy. Colossus ain't got any great drops; but the one good thing about the ride is that you can expect to go up and down. Terminator on the other hand, meh, some tunnels, smoother...faster... doesn't do anything for me to be honest. I'm all for Colossus getting some attention.
  21. How someone has the opportunity to be able to ride THIS BEAST and passes it up is beyond my understanding.... Just ride the darn thing. You're lucky to be living so class to such an amazing park. Many roller coaster enthusiasts would kill to have the luxury to go to this park often.
  22. I was at the park this past Tuesday and I was listening in on a convo of GP. They were looking at Deja Vu and said ... "oh, there's The Riddler's Revenge" and referring to Terminator.... "there's the wooden roller coaster, Colossus that's supposed to be somewhere near this green ride....so we are in the right area of the park."
  23. I like the dude that keeps saying... "Tat.....suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu" at Tatsu.
  24. Not true whatsoever. I've been on Sundays and Fridays during July of last year. You do not need a flash pass to ride the 14 primary roller coasters (not including the two junior roller coasters). Figures. They seem to get a lot of stuff postponed: Superman, X, etc. X or Superman weren't postponed on the same basis as Mr. Six's. X had some malfunctions or problems I heard that prevented it from debuting as was anticipated.
  25. ^ If it was me I would find the flash pass to be uneconomical and would simply arrive at the park early and head to Tatsu first. However, since you are with your mom, I would not tell you that you should not get the pass. It'll ensure that your experience is enjoyable I suppose. I've been to the park on a Sunday and Thursday many times during the summer. Not as crowded as worst days, but you'll deal with crowds. Good thing you're going to the park next week, if this were to be any other day in July or August, I don't think the park is for your mom. You're mom shouldn't be going there because she will most likely not be able to tolerate the heat.
