    What would donkeys be like on the moon?

  1. No, they can’t get rid of the single rider on lex, I used to hop on and off solo in 2 minutes...
  2. Looks like magic mountain is aiming for another June/July opening unless we actually see some foundation work soon.
  3. This 100% confirms it’s the catch car that broke. Look at the size of the crate and that shiny new catch car already installed. Hopefully Knott’s took the last 6 months to make sure everything else running super smooth and get ahead on maintance.
  4. In reality small dents like that on the thick steel used In the supports should have little to no impact on the structural integrity of the ride. Knotts wouldn’t have assembled the dented pieces if it was a problem

  6. ^ I still can see Knotts testing hangtime before crazanity is even vertical Also as noted before the area behind the park being graded is likely for new homes. I remember a few years ago they had to move all their spare parts from the dirt lot behind apocalypse because it wasn’t on their property. So odds are 99.9% that the development is related to homes/businesses
  7. The official unofficial Dippin' Dots rumor says that Mondial gave Knott's a super big discount. Another very uncredible rumor says that the ride was free and Knott's only had to pay for the installation. They definitely got a large discount plus Knotts saved on having to do new foundation work with the existing windseeker foundation there
  8. Super excited about Hangtime. While no gigga or hyper I think this will be a long needed addition to the park and adds a a new fun experience to the boardwalk that seemed more family oriented since the refresh and with the old head banger boomerang there. Can’t wait to see it open plan to be there opening day if I can.
  9. If you look forward by boardwalk bbq you can see they have one of the large forward support columns up as well
  10. Every park I've been too will close the line either at park close or 15 min before park close (if its long). It all depends on supervisor on duty and the crew. Ive been in the station before 2-3 min before closing and they were making announcements of people running into the long line and jumping the barrier to leave since they had closed the line.
  11. Six flags is a going to be a year round park. Anyday Monday-Thur expect no lines unless it’s a holiday weekend or some special event. I think they extended weekly operating schedule this fall to test it
  12. Damn when I used to be at the park constantly back in 2009-2010 all the ride ops and maintaince guys knew me around Xcelerator and they would always tell me what was going on cus I knew what he normal breakdowns were and I’d just ask if had overheated or timed out over the top hat. Doubt same staff there now and prob wouldn’t recognize me.
  13. It would be nice if they got it reopened for the guests of the park. The park is always looking for a "marketing opportunity" when refurbishing old rides so this would provide them one to reopen it to the public again... But this is Magic Mountain we are talking about so my hopes aren't exactly too high
  14. Wasn’t the sky tower at magic mountain originally supposed to be a playboy party house? With the passing of Hefner it would be cool if the Park actually got it reopened in some kind of memory of him. I seriously miss that tower. Spent many hours at WCB up there escaping the heat in the AC feeling like I was designing a park in RCT looking down.
