  1. Here is a trip report for Saturday. Sidewinder Safari experienced a delay in operation while I was in line for it. You could hear the sound of birds chirping, although I don't think there were actual birds. The ride was fun with twists and u-turns, although bumpier than I anticipated. Starting in the afternoon, the lines moved slowly. Thrilla Gorilla and The Flash: Vertical Velocity were closed.
  2. Here is a trip report for Saturday. RailBlazer was closed for operation. Gold Striker was testing until 10:15. The park's newest ride Liberty Twirler wasn't open yet, even though it was supposed to open by the end of June. I thought the new ride additions to the water park were nice, along with the various signs and murals. There were eight new kids slides, which I did, and I thought they were fairly enjoyable, including a green one with colored translucent bands inside. Moreover, the two new tube ones (Barracuda and Feeding Frenzy) were solid, with my preference being for the latter. Lastly, I thought Shark Reef Plunge, the launch capsule drop ride, was definitely the best ride at the water park and provided an exhilarating rush.
  3. What's an overbanked cutback element, 180 degree stall, a raven dive, and zero-gravity roll? Thanks.
  4. Here is a trip report for last Saturday. I did West Coast Racers for the first time and really enjoyed it. I thought the airtime greatly enhanced the ride experience. The dueling aspect was reminiscent of Twisted Colossus, which was also nice. The ride length was perfect, longer than most. The wait time in X2's regular line was a modest one hour late morning. I rode Superman forwards for the first time and thought it went higher than when it goes in the backward direction. The wait time in Superman's regular line early afternoon was less than 20 minutes. Jet Stream was closed early on, but opened up in the evening. I did it for the first time and thought it was just mediocre, as it was too bumpy and hardly gets you wet. What I didn't know beforehand is Superman isn't included with the Gold Flash Pass and X2 doesn't have an additional surcharge with Gold. Lex Luthor and Justice League were both closed.
  5. For those who work at the park or who went over the weekend, do they require you to wear a mask on all the rides on proof of vaccination days? Thanks.
  6. For Twisted Colossus, it was about 10 minutes. With the Platinum Flash Pass, I rode eight rides (including six coasters) in a little over six hours, although I did take food and beverage breaks with a friend.
  7. I had a good time at the park yesterday. Lex Luthor, Jet Stream, and Tidal Wave were all closed. It definitely helped to have had the Platinum Flash Pass, as Twisted Colossus had an hour-and-a-half wait around 4:30, the longest I've ever seen for it. I'm looking forward to riding West Coast Racers next year.
  8. Do they still have a Gold Pass early entry in 2019? Also, if you have a Gold Season Pass, do you get a discount on a flash pass if you buy in person? Lastly, if buying in person and you have a group of four, is it possible to buy multiple flash passes so one person doesn’t have to pay for everyone? Thanks.
  9. Here is a trip report for Sunday. Gold Striker was a walk-on in the morning and in the afternoon; I can't remember the last time that happened. Whitewater Falls and Rip Roaring Rapids were both closed. I did RailBlazer both in the front and back, and preferred the back as there's more airtime. Tiki Twirl experienced technical difficulties while we were waiting in line for it and again when we were on it. The lines moved really smoothly for the most part.
  10. This is a trip report for last Saturday. The Joker line was extra long because they were running just one train. It took two hours for Batman to open. I thought the ride was intense and fun, but way too short. With the exception of Monsoon Falls, which had a minimal wait, lines seemed to be on the longer side. Vertical Velocity and Harley Quinn were down all day.
  11. I received this in a Magic Mountain enewsletter. ONE TIME OFFER: Eat at the Park All Year for $34.99 This is an exclusive online-only 2019 Basic Season Dining offer. It can only be redeemed online - not in the park. We reserve the right to check your ID when you pick up your Six Flags Season Dining Pass at the park to verify your purchase. Would this only be good at Magic Mountain or would I be able to redeem at other Six Flags parks too? Also, if it's online only, why does it have to be picked up in person?
  12. Here's a trip report for this past Saturday. I did Crazanity for the first time and thought it had incredible speed and weightlessness. I thought it was a bit better than the comparable ride Wonder Woman at Discovery Kingdom. Lex Luthor was down until 4 something in the afternoon because of an issue with the tower. The New Revolution didn't open until later in the day, while Superman was down all day. While waiting in line for Tatsu at night, the ride experienced a delay in operations.
  13. Would anyone be down to go to the park on Saturday? I flew into LAX this evening and was supposed to go with someone who lives in the area, but he cancelled on me last minute. I am staying at the Double Tree by Hilton in Culver City - 6161 W. Centinela Ave. If anyone could go and would be willing to pick me up in the morning outside the hotel that'd be great and would mean a lot to me. I was hoping to leave a little before 9. My intention of flying down was to process my 2019 season pass at the park, so I can get the gold upgrade. By the way, I also won two free tickets earlier this year and brought those with me, so admission would be free. Lastly, I can be reached by phone as well. My # is (650) 787-4572. Thanks. *I would be wearing a Polo t-shirt.*
  14. Here is a trip report for yesterday. I did RailBlazer for the first time and found it intense, with a strong amount of g-forces. I really enjoyed the airtime aspects. The two times I wanted to ride Drop Tower it wasn't operating. The lines all moved fast.
  15. (1) zero g roll is basically a roll at the apex of a airtime hill like the 3rd inversion of Scream, zero g stall pauses in roll upside down like twisted or west coast racers. (2) high- banked turn is just that a turn with alot of bank up to 90 degess, an overbank is a turn where the bank exceeds 90 degress. (3)near misses, again just like it sounds, ya know, head choppers, weaving close to structures or two trains over and under each other (4) track crossovers? You're really typing your own answers here....when the tracks cross over (or under) each other, typically referred to on a racing or dueling coaster... That help? Yes, it does for the most part. Wasn't really sure about the head choppers part, though. Thanks.
  16. I have some questions I was hoping could be answered for the new West Coast Racers ride. [1] What's the difference between a zero G roll and a zero G stall? [2] What are high-banked turns and how are they different from overbanked turns? [3] What are over/under near misses? [4] What are meant by track crossovers? Thanks.
  17. For the new Batman ride, how does the magnetic technology work? Also, what makes the I-box track floating? Thanks.
  18. Here's a trip report for Labor Day. The Joker, Superman, and Harley Quinn weren't open initially. Later on, I was able to ride all of them, though. When I was able to ride Harley Quinn, only one of the trains was running, so it made the line longer and the experience less of a novelty. I liked how it stalled at the apex and then came down and reversed direction. Overall, a pretty enjoyable ride. The Penguin was down all day and when I walked past Tazmanian Devil it was down. After hearing that V2 had been closed for a while, I was glad I was able to ride it.
  19. How does the magnetic technology work? What makes the I-box track floating? Also, what is a raven drop? Thanks.
  20. For anyone who was at the park this past weekend, was Harley Quinn open?
