  1. Screamscape was sent the email that Selim Bassoul the new CEO sent to the company (You can read that email at the link below). It seems like Six Flags will be restructuring the company and returning to a reporting structure where the park presidents report directly to the CEO, which I would assume means they will have a lot more say/power in how they get to run their park. http://screamscape.com/html/corporate_park_news.htm#SixFlags
  2. Magic Mountain was in the news today for a weird reason more at the link above
  3. It looks like the green lantern building is not being reused? https://epicla.lacounty.gov/SelfService/#/permit/811cd7b5-aa55-4f37-b3c1-e8eeba4c6b7a
  4. Apparently construction walls have gone up around the Green Lantern/Tidal Wave site. If anyone here is going to the park this week please confirm if you can.
  5. Good point. But you would think that they may want to announce this ride as soon as they can so they can get people to signup for the membership (new memberships and those that dropped it last year). The earlier they announce it, the more time they have for people to sign up for the membership right? Especially since SFMM is still the companies “crown jewel”? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. So is Six Flags going to “officially” announce the coaster they are building at SFMM? Or are they going to wait until their yearly reveal date? Now that there will be people in the park it’s going to be pretty obvious to guests that something is being built. And it’s going to be pretty hard to hide it if the ride goes vertical before August.

  7. Yah. I mean out here in woodland hills there used to be a super car “show” every weekend in the Westfield Promenade and it was always packed. https://yelp.to/lMke30hN7db http://www.supercarsunday.com/about-us/ LA is one of the few places where something like this WOULD succeed.

  8. Tidal wave no longer shows up in the Six Flags app. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Looks like the 2021ish coaster for SFMM was conditionally approved by the city https://epicla.lacounty.gov/SelfService/#/permit/3f44c971-a566-49fc-95c9-7ae34f7382fd Here is the second request they submitted (Geotechnical Study) https://epicla.lacounty.gov/SelfService/#/plan/34b29751-f381-4f38-b9b3-2cfc55afe0ee Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The permits I linked to above are from the middle of October so I bet if we got a fly over this week, we would see changes. They didn’t. See the permit applications I linked to above. Even if it’s a 2021 ride I doubt it gets finished till The end of the year, due to covid Restrictions and such. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Looks like you are right and they are still planning on building the 2021 coaster, according to these permits filed this month https://epicla.lacounty.gov/SelfService/#/plan/34b29751-f381-4f38-b9b3-2cfc55afe0ee?tab=subrecords https://epicla.lacounty.gov/SelfService/#/permit/3f44c971-a566-49fc-95c9-7ae34f7382fd
  12. Some Six Flags News from screamscape http://www.screamscape.com/html/corporate_park_news.htm#SixFlags Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Isn’t the 2021 ride announcements in August? I’m surprised we have not heard one way or the other if this was scrapped. (Either rumors or news) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Jaws was apparently on a truck out of universal? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. According to Scremscape, The Whoville backlot set was demolished Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Superman closes to save money during slower times. This has been a common practice for the past few winters. I think this was already covered, but one of the ride electrician supervisors has been tasked with procuring the working LSMs from Dreamworld in Australia now that Tower of Terror is closed. Hopefully we'll see all of the LSMs actually working at some point in the future and the ride actually (reliably) goes 100mph again... They have had a lot of LSMs go bad over the past few years and Six Flags doesn't allocate the budget to have them replaced/remanufactured so getting a bunch of 'still good' LSMs from Dreamworld could definitely extend the lifespan of Superman. And yes, maintenance intentionally under-powers the working motors to not stress them so that the motors' lifespan is extended. The park sill could (and does) launch the ride at 100mph, at least empty, but they would be killing a lot more motors a lot quicker if they were consistently doing full power launches. https://www.facebook.com/537015473442196/posts/many-thought-the-last-we-would-see-of-tower-of-terror-was-on-november-3-but-toda/791501241326950/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Here is the SEC document https://otp.tools.investis.com/clients/us/sixflags1/SEC/sec-show.aspx?FilingId=13839504&Cik=0000701374&Type=PDF&hasPdf=1 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  19. SFMM has announced it’s opening on January 9 2020. Sneak previews start tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Two carnival cruise ships collide in Mexico https://nbcnews.to/2Zb44Sj Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Umm. Why was Apocalypse removed from the SFMM site? https://www.sixflags.com/magicmountain/attractions/apocalypse They list a bunch of other rides at the park as “temporarily closed” so if it was WCR related why not do that. Completely removing it from the site is weird. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. It looks like green lantern is staring to be taken down Screamscape just RT this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. The WB tour is much more expensive, longer, and handles smaller, more intimate groups. At points, the WB tour leaves the shuttles and continues on foot into the studio buildings themselves (which obviously the Universal version does not do). It is more informative and also feels more "authentic" in a way. They are entirely different beasts, and Universal Studios would need to make major changes to their tour in order to make it even close to being equitable to the other studio tours in the area as a "standalone" offering. It would be crazy for Universal Studios to treat the tour as an extra upcharge. It's not like they have enough room to replace it with anything worthwhile (especially at the capacity that the trams pull). Without the tram tours, Universal Studios Hollywood is easily the worst park in the area (and even with the tram tours, the park is rather small). Yup. I won’t go back if they make it an up charge without any major changes. Then non tram attractions are literally just clones of each other (motion simulator rides) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
