The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody!

 

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Six Flags Magic Mountain, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

 

Below are some links to past updates from the park, you may be interested in. Enjoy!

Hey everyone!

 

Tatsu Media Day & Camp Out Photo & Video Update POSTED!

http://www.themeparkreview.com/tatsumed ... iaday1.htm

 

First of all, Elissa and I would like to thank everyone who showed up to the camp out last night. We had nearly 200 people show up and it wouldn't have been as much fun without all of you!

 

In the end, everything worked out GREAT! The camp out was fun, Tatsu is GREAT, and we got to ride many, many times. There was even plenty of free food for breakfast and lunch. (Gotta love Vault ICEE's Wes!)

 

I have posted 4 pages of photos along with 2 videos and an audio interview with Six Flags President and CEO, Mark Shaprio. There was some very interesting things said, so I'd reccomend checking that out!

 

And of course, our TPR Camp Out video has some very funny moments in it.

 

Oh, and if you have photos from the camp out or media day, PLEASE pos them! We'd love to hear everyone's comments and feedback about the event so we can make our next event even BETTER!

 

Thanks again to everyone!

 

--Robb

There are other jobs available.  Not even close to a fair comparison.  And I’m someone who is a causality of this nonsense. The rational argument you should be making is how if the goal is to kee

Fun fact: "stanky tunnel" is a hip new synonym for "budget"

It's beyond time for California parks to open. Bars, restaurants, malls, and gyms are back open, all of which are more prone to spreading virus than outdoor theme parks with reduced capacity.

Nice photos and such of course! Camp Out looked fun, nice to see familiar faces and its a shame I couldn't make it out there.

 

Woo Shapiro gave Lake Compounce a shoutout!! 8)

// I love the Lake

 

And the map exchange! Oh, and was he eating during the interview??

 

I love the man, but not as much as Elissa.

 

 

Where are they? I want one!!

 

OMG you guys watched Family Guy, I'm really sad I wasn't there :<img src=:'>::cry::

I have probably told Robb 50 times how much I appreciated the Camp Out! It was a blast! Tatsu ended up being so much more than I had anticipated! If you havn't started planning your trip do it soon! Thanks again TPR, you're the best!

OMG! A B&M flyer that is NOT "forceless"! Too bad I wasn't there.

 

And yes, I kinda expected the usual "antics" at the camp-out and media day:

 

"Access denied! This section of the camp is for Camp Awesome members only!"

"Ow, stop poking me, I'm trying to enjoy my Tatsu dream here!"

"Four people per row please! Don't push! Don't push! You're all going to ride!"

"I call front row! Out of my way, I called it first!"

"Think we should pee when we go through the egg turn, just like the water dummies?"

 

Stuff like that going on all the time. There's 200 crazy people there, what do you expect?

 

Great update, looks like fun.

 

Super "Best thing for me to do now is get down to SFMM and ride it myself, huh?"

So after all the media day runs, is there a POV of this ride available yet?

We are working with the park to produce a video complete with the footage they shot at the media day yesterday.

 

Should have that early next week.

I'm pissed that I missed the event. I was all slated to go down there, but finals and school work really caught up to me. I would of been screwed if I ditched any school this week.

 

oh well. Glad you all had fun!

Thanks again Robb for putting this together. That was a lot of fun. Tatsu was great, and that Pretzel Loop in the back seat beat the hell out of me lol. NOt to mention Deja Vu was running, and my friends and I got to ride 12 of the major coasters. But we were wiped my 2:30 in the afternoon. But it was a ton of fun, and hopefully there will be more events like this.

Hey guys

 

I have now a new respect for you people able to stay all day and night at a park even when i was with you and never got 1 wink of sleep. I had to cut out early so i could go home and rest up for my own coastercraze in hopes that i can bring my brothers into the theme park review family. Robb Elissa thanks for bringing me into the tpr fold and i can promise you i will be hitting sfmm like a hurricaine so expect TR reports from me

 

take care guys and thank you

I find that all news reporters act like they know what they're talking about with roller coasters but I am not convinced. They also laugh at the stupidest things like I am on my tummy! (heee hee hee) very funny. But anyway cool photos and video. I wish I was there.
