  1. I will miss Tidal Wave for the quick 5 second shower.

    I've been on Roaring Rapids back to back and didn't get wet at all. And Goliath's sprinkler system is a joke and gets flown away by the wind before it hits your body. Heat exhaustion is real problem for me when i visit the park in the summers. With the lack of shade and sprinkler fans around the park, I will miss Tidal Wave. 

    BTW does anyone know if you can just use your phone as a flash pass now and not have to get a watch anymore? It will be awesome not have to stand in line to buy a flash pass anymore. Waited 40 minutes in line last time just to buy a watch last month.

    I wonder if CraZanity is closed due to concerns about guests keeping their masks on.  The one ride type that has routinely been difficult to keep my mask on has been these giant frisbees because of how the wind hits your face at a variety of angles.  The mask has never come close to blowing away, but it will always slide down to my chin on this type of ride unless I actively hold it up during the ride.  Wasn't there a statement in the California reopening guidelines that some rides may have to shut down if they would be hard to keep masks on for?

    My mask slid down my nose on every single ride. However on Riddler's Revenge, my mask almost flew right off. It was hanging on by one ear. I had to hold my mask in my hand the rest of the ride otherwise it would have flown away. 

  3. Finally went yesterday, on Saturday. I had no choice but to get a flash pass if I wanted to get on all the rides, which that alone was a 50 minute wait. The park was really crowded. Lines were long everywhere. Rides were constantly breaking down. If you came in after 12pm, and you were in the regular line, you must of have been absolutely miserable. Not only were lines moving slow, but they would alternate between the flash pass line and the regular line.

    I can't believe i'm going to say this, but summer time with no capacity limit, had faster lines than covid at 15% capacity. If you plan to go on a Saturday, except summer experience. About 1-2hr wait for Fully Throttle, West Coast racers, Goliath, and Twisted Colossus. Tatsu probably 30min-1hr.  The flash pass line for Twisted Colossus and Full Throttle was about 20-30min. 

  4. First and foremost, we are going to give you one month of Membership for each month Six Flags Magic Mountain is closed (rounded up to the nearest month). These months will automatically be added to the very end of your Membership

     

    My one year membership anniversary was last month April 14. Yet I was charged this morning $9.95.

    Since my membership "ended" last month, does anyone know why I was still charged?

     

    You do NOT need to take any special action to receive these benefits -- your account will automatically be upgraded as soon as Six Flags Magic Mountain reopens.

     

    I have no plans to cancel my membership because I want the free upgrade. The upgrade won't added on until MM opens.

    So i understand that part why i'm still at gold status, just confused about still being charged.

     

    There is an option to "pause" your membership. Anyone know if that will affect your free upgrade?

    Suing six flags? My personal opinion on this is that you are not a true rollercoaster enthusiast and greedy. You can cancel anytime you want. But if you cancel, i do not believe you deserve any of the benefits.

     

    I love that I am getting free extra months on top of this and free upgrade to Platinum for only $9.95 a month. I will gladly continue paying my monthly fees.

     

    What are people complaining about? Am I missing something.

     

    So I guess if you are mad that Sixflags (who does not have Disney money) is still charging you, well have fun riding no rollercoasters in the future because Sixflags will be going bankrupt.

  6. ^ That's awesome if Twisted Colossus is finally unlimited. The site still says 1X, but it wouldn't be the first time the Flash Pass site isn't up-to-date.

    They always tell you it’s 1x only, but every time I use a flashpass they seem to be buggy. When they scan your watch, the reserve doesn’t go away. So technically you can go again over and over. I have to manually cancel the reserve after they scan me, if I want to reserve for a different ride after I get off the current one.

  7. Do they still have a Gold Pass early entry in 2019? Also, if you have a Gold 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.

    I have a Gold Season Pass. The flash pass discount is *drum roll* $5 off (in person). I’ve always gone alone, so I don’t know how group works, also I don’t really understand your last question.

  8. Also should say SFMM needs more shading given its location, or mist fans anything. I was expecting it to be awfully hot and still was shocked. My goodness it was brutal.

    You have no idea how much I agree with you.

    Not even just the summer, but even in April is was uncomfortable hot. They have mists in the Goliath line but they never turn them on, pisses me off.

    I don’t know if it’s because the park sits in between mountains, so all the heat gets trapped there or what, but I find that 75 degrees and up, SFMM should definitely have mist fans running. I’m one of those people that get nauseated from heat and starts puking.

  9. Pendulum rides have been having some bad luck this year. Already 3 accidents, a recent one in India a couple days ago of it snapping in half.

     

    Yeah, Six Flags does buys from Zamperla. I heard they were having problems with the motor box meaning the ride can’t go as high as it should, not sure which park.

    But Six Flags and American parks are incredibly safe, so I’m not going to fret too much about it.

     

    Crazanity is definitely one of my favorite rides at the park. I find it much more enjoyable than Goliath.

  10. Anyone know anything about the rattling on Crazanity?

     

    I believe this is my 4th time riding that ride and it never use to do that. This week was the first time ever that I felt the seats rattle or shake.I went with family members who went on it for the very first time and they were quite spooked about it and wanted to complain to staff. I felt pretty safe but it is something interesting that I noticed about the ride, which I never felt before. It could have just been air resistance, but it felt different. My seat never shook the first 3 times I rode it.

  11. 2 hour wait for a rapids ride??? Yeah, no thx...

    It’s more to do with California’s heat. MM is always a heat wave during the summer. I prefer to just go stand on the bridge at Tidal Wave and get soaked there now.

    I rode Roaring Rapids twice and didn’t get wet on either attempts. Waisted my flash pass time on that ride. Imagine the people in the regular line standing 2 hours for that ride and having a 50-70% of barely not getting wet.

    I wish they would redesign that ride or add a waterfall.

  12. We are driving up from San Diego and plan on staying two or three nights. isitpacked shows "hey it's all right" for this monday-wednesday. We are gold season pass holders and includes hurricane harbor. Dad doesn't do any rides but can wait in line for me.

     

    We plan on arriving sunday afternoon. Any advice around how to best incorporate hurricane harbor in our plans? when to focus on magic mountain and when to go to hurricane harbor during three days?

     

    Thanks!

    I went June 19, Wednesday, when isitpacked also showed "hey it's all right". I did Hurricane Harbor from 11am-5:30pm then MM 6pm - 9pm with a platinum flashpass because I only had 3 hours till the park closes and I wanted to make sure I got on all my favorite rides.

    Hurricane Harbor was quite packed for a Wednesday. Lost temples Rapids was an hour wait, Tornado 30-40min, Taboo Tower 10-15min, Black Snake Summit 20min. I couldn't handle it, so I went and got a $35 gold flashpass.

    At MM, Crazanity and Twisted Colossus were about an hour wait.

    You can check out queue times here https://queue-times.com/parks/32/queue_times

    Right now (Sunday) you can see that Crazanity, FT, Goliath, and Roaring Rapids are all 2 hours right now.

  13. Well, I am going back to CA this year! Bad news is that mean 1 train ops and dealing with Six Flags-ness

    Only/last time I went was for an event so had ERT and the park kind of ran itself well. No such luck this time

     

    I was thinking early Sept. What crowds can be expected, though I assume fast lane is necessary? Would crowds be any better on a week day?

    Early September the park is empty. You wouldn't need a flash pass. Be aware that Fright Fest begins September 14, which means every Saturday, the park will be packed till November. That was miserable. I went the last Saturday of September thinking people wouldn't be going to Fright Fest till October, big mistake. I had a gold flash pass and still had to wait a whole hour for some of the rides. Week days are empty.

  14. I've been going to KI all my life, so I must ask. What is this "one-train operation" you speak of?

     

    I thought that was just for like kiddie coasters, shuttles, and whatnot.

     

    (But all joking aside, that wait for Ninja sounds effing brutal - typically not a good thing when the number of lifts a ride has exceeds its number of trains in operation!)

    When I went, they only had one train running for Ninja, Scream, Superman, and Tidal Wave. I also heard someone say Riddlers Revenge was only using one train too but I cant confirm that one. They have been running one train on Scream for a couple weeks now. However for a good reason, someone spotted new trains in the dirt near the ride. Now add flashplass to that line.

     

    When I went on Tidal wave, they let like 10 flash passers on, I had the whole row to myself and like 2 other rows behind me were empty. I Thought that maybe they would open the gate for the regular line to fill in the rows, but they didnt. They started the ride with only flash passers on it when there was tons of space left. It is quite ridiculous.

  15. The walk of shame, I mean guilt.

    When the station's flashpass entrance is through the exit instead of being intertwined with the regular people once you get to the front. Ninja and GoldRusher are the two I can think of that make you do that. I think Goliath used to have it that way a couple years ago, until they changed it and made flashpassers go down the stairs around the back and up the stairs to meet with the regular line.

    To make it worse, Ninja is only running one train, with a 100 minute wait time. And then here I come, through the exit gate keeping my eyes at the floor as I pick my seat, so I don't have to look at those poorly faces who have been waiting for an hour in the heat, who were so excited because they finally made it to the front and this train was suppose to be theirs, but then all of a sudden the flash pass herd comes and now you, who is in the regular line, have to wait another 3 minutes for the next train.

    And then as a flash passer, you sit there for about a minute in front of everyone while the attendants check each restraint trying not to make eye contact with the people in line.

    But boy do I freakin love flash passes. I am sorry for not being sorry. I do wish MM could have better line queuing. I like how they do the lines for Full Throttle.

  16. Has anyone obtained the new flash pass watches and noticed a glitch on them?

    When I went two weeks ago, I noticed that after the employee would scan my watch (by using the app on their iphone), that it wouldn't cancel my reserve. I found myself at multiple stations, having to manually cancel my reserve (it would still say ready on my device) on my watch before picking another ride.

    This even goes for the rides that are one-time only too. Like for example YOLOcoaster, after they scanned my watch and let me on through, since the scanner didn't automatically cancel the reserve for YOLOcoaster, my watch still said "ready" for YOLOcoaster, so technically I could go in line again after I get off. Though I never actually attempted to do it and get back in line, because I was too scared to even try it lol.

    Yes, I've noticed that too. It's a bonus for the 1 ride only choices. It also saves time for any other rerides you want to do. I find it more of a positive than negative. I do hate the watches. I wish they could bring back the q-bots!

    Well of course it is a positive for us customers I'm just wondering if Magic Mountain is aware of it.

    Shhh no one tell them.

  18. Is it true Magic Mountain got rid of the Q-bot flash pass device? I heard it is now a watch, known as a "prism".

    If so, that's cool. I hated the Q-bots, I found them too big to fit in my pocket and annoying to carry around. Also watches are more waterproof. Now I won't be so stressed when riding Roaring Rapids. I read some stories about how people's Q-bots would fly out of their pockets on drops.

     

    is it like the Schlitterbahn watches?

    There are two watch type devices: Qband and Prism. Schlitterbahn uses Qband.
