The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Just left from the park. I went to the ERT this morning which ended up opening at 9:45. I managed to get 7 rides on it during the ERT and I must say, Lex Luthor is one of the best additions Magic Mountain has gotten in a while, just my opinion though. I loved the little details put in to this ride such as the "Lex Corp Experiment" that you ocassionaly hear outside the ride explaning that you'll be participating in an experiment for Lex Corp on Lex Towers(Superman). The Lex Armor suit isn't covered in gum yet so that was nice to see considering the suit looks really cool. Overall, I loved the ride. I was expecting the ride to shake violently when Superman roared up the tower but it mostly swayed gently adding to the thrill.

 

Oh yes, I also found multi-colored supports behind Apocalypse but they didn't look like ride supports. I'll post a picture when I get home, I'm currently on my phone typing this in the parking lot. I first saw it while on Apocalypse(which was running great today) but I then just went up to the Sky Tower to get the picture. Again, I'll post the picture in a bit.

 

 

support for new coster?

Sky Screamer for 2013 it looks like so far..

Plus Full Throttle (we think?). A new flat ride two years in a row seems pretty good to me. Maybe after 2013 they can focus on other parks. Not that I will complain if SFMM gets more monster coasters...

^ You must have your head under a rock, at least a rock that encompasses SFMM!

 

Six Flags hasn't been paying nearly as much attention to SFMM as people believe they do. This whole deal with them getting yearly major attractions is just the Six Flags business plan. In fact, SFMM was one of the smaller additions of 2012, with X-Flight being the highlight.

I know the business plan corporate-wide is to have a new attraction for each park every year. It just seems like they over spend on SFMM. At the very least, they could use the funds that they have allocated for SFMM in better ways.

I agree, too much is being put into SFMM, but there must be a fairly significant ROI if they're going to continue to do it.

Let's hope that this is true. I trust them. However, let's not forget how they got into financial trouble before: overspending.

Isn't it kinda funny that we are calling 2 VERY tall rides "flat rides"? I'm all for more flat rides... thank god my home park is six flags Great America. What did Magic Mountain do with the Tilt-A-Whirl? For some reason, I figure it's gone because the restraints don't lock. Or did they add shoulder bars to that, too?

I hope the big parks (well... the 2 that usually fight over most coasters) would focus on improving what they have (expecially Magic Mountain). (I'll skip over mentioning the rumored/impending Colossus and Revolution return to greatness... oops, didn't do so well not mentioning that)

I'm not sure why a SFMM Sky Screamer would have to be taller than Knotts ride. They just added a drop tower which is the tallest ride in California. If they add one I bet it will be a copy of the one at Great Adventure.

I'm going with SkyScreamer as well. No need for it to be the tallest of anything. It's different enough from Windseeker. Most GP don't have any knowledge of the one at SFDK. No need for it to be too tall as it does get windy up at the park. Plus, the park is in DESPERATE need of some flat rides. Remember, the park doesn't make rides for "us", they make them for the other 99% of people.

 

If parts are already starting to arrive, it's entirely possible it could be open this year, especially if they are putting it in Thrill shots spot. They've already got the space for it. I haven't seen the SkyScreamer installations but I'd imagine the ride pad is essentially the same size as that. Can anybody confirm?
