  1. When I was a kid I had watched these videos called "There goes a.....", and each video was based on different things like planes, police cars, and fire trucks. Well this one video was called "Here comes a roller coaster", which toke place at SFMM. And they just ran around the park riding all the roller coasters. It was filmed in 1994 so they made batman and viper seem as they were the greatest coasters ever made. I laught so much whenever I watch it again and just seeing how much the park has changed.

  2. However, I do know that there are some other spots in the park where a good sized coaster could go. As we've seen in a few examples, ride designers and engineers can get very creative when need be.



    Its like when Tatsu was comming to the park. When word started circulating that the park was going to build the world's tallest and fastest flying coaster. I had literaly had no idea where they were going to put it.

  3. The Scat-A-Bout location would have been great because it would be on the top of the hill, if only there wasn't that dang height limit. But based on Angry_Gumball's idea I can't imagen them just taking out half of the midway there, becuase think of the bottle necking that will happen with big crowds. And It would be really stupid if they took out Cobra.


    I wonder if they could possibly fit it in Medusa's track aera. There is a couple of aeras that look big enough. But I don't know how much ground space the ride would require.


    ^BTW welcome to the forums.

  4. it doesn't sound like Magic Mountain does much for the holidays


    Yeap your right. Basically all they do is have the Six Flags Plaza area decorated a little with reefs and lights, but nothing major like Disney, Universal, or even Knotts. I had always thought they should do a holiday in the park like SFDK, SFOT, and SFFT. But they seem to not want to compete with the other socal parks. From my experiences of visiting at that time I don't remeber it being very crowded (cold though). If the park is closing at 6, its not because the park jamed full of people. So you should be perfectly fine.

  5. Reading this topic made me want to go out this weekend and take this picture of SFMM (with the colossus spider). If you are familiar to the area around the park, this was taken from Newhall Ranch road, just north of I-5. I really like this view with the mountains in the background and just seeing all the rides on top of the hill. Also in this shot I count a total of 11 coasters. (soon to be 12)



    Six Flags Magic Mountain

  6. Of course Cedar Point is good from any angle around the pensula.


    And SFDK looks good when you are exiting 37 after getting off I-80, it gives me major goosebumps seeing Medusa right there. And its really good seeing it from the parking lot (if leaving parking lot wasn't so bad it would be my most favorite lot).


    But I would say the best view is of SFMM when your are going southbound on I-5. Just seeing all the big roller coasters in one shot sitting on top of the hill. It is a complete heart break having to drive down that road when you are not going to stop there.
