The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

Recommended Posts

Apocalypse has some new decals on the trains promoting the sci-fi show Falling Skies on TNT. They also had some ads for the show along the walls of the line with a graffiti-esque look. I've never cared for the show myself, but I thought the advertising at the park was worth mentioning.

those ads have been there for a really long time i'm surprised they're still there!

Uh, yeah - just because supports are on site doesn't mean that Six Flags Magic Mountain will or will not actually do anything with them...

why else would supports be there, for decoration? lol

Took a short trip to the park since I got off work early. Spent most of the time riding Lex Luther (got in at least seven rides), and man was this ride much needed at the park, even with the amount of downtime it's been having (which is obviously expected of a new ride). Needless to say, it's very reridable and lived up to its hype.

Could you post a picture of the ads since I want to see if they are a wrap or just a little decal?

^I didn't take any pictures. As far as I could see it's decal, but it could be wrap-I honestly wouldn't know the difference really (and admittedly wouldn't care to), but it did make the train look a little more interesting. Colossus also had something similar for The Great Escape.

That's ok dude just wanted to know if we are seeing the return of train wrapping.

C'mon people, let's not forget who were dealing with. SFMM wouldn't leave that big (and now ugly) of a space just to sit there. There will be a coaster in LG spot whether Full Throttle is for the flat or the coaster!

Since this can be assumed as a sling shot, I see it as an up charge just because of the horrible capacity and the nature of the ride....

Now where will this go? I don't think a slingshot would fit where Thrill Shot was... but I could be wrong.

^ I would imagine Thrill Shot's former area would be where they would put a new upcharge, unless it will be too large (i assume they come in different sizes-what is the biggest version of this particular upcharge btw?)

Probably just for the summer. And I apologize if my reply was a little uncalled for.

I'm just saying that Six Flags Magic Mountain really hasn't confirmed or denied anything yet. They could just be trying to make a little bit of cash by renting out the site for someone to store the parts on.

Thank you! I knew someone else could agree with me on that!

Yeah I'm not familiar with sling shot attractions so I'm not sure of the sizes they come in. If I'm right Intamin has never made one of these before....?

Was at the park yesterday, Scream & Viper had one train ops....slow lines. Every other line seemed to move very quickly. Lex Luthor (the side facing DC Universe) continued to get stuck at the top while the other side dropped. It was constantly down throughout the day......Superman only had the left side running, hour and 1/2 wait with NO air in the queue line at all it was hot and smelled like BO. Other than that....no long lines, operations were good, fun day!

^That's too bad about Lex and Superman, last Tuesday the AC in the line for Superman was on full blast! Also, it seems like the park doesn't want to race the two sides of Superman, because last time I was there, they had the opportunity to run both sides at once coincidentally, but opted to send one side and wait until it was coming back to send the other side.

Kinda wish they could re-theme Apocalypse to Falling Skies. The people in that show move trough tunnels a lot anyway, right?

Ain't going to happen I know. Somewhat surprised the show got renewed for it's 2nd season too.

I went on superman on opening day for ll:dod and it was horrible in there, normally the air is running but it was so hot and it smelled horrible, i really hope they start running the a/c in there

Made a trip yesterday. Had nothing but bad luck! Day started getting stuck on the orient express for 20 mins. Then on to Green Lantern that broke down 3 times while we waited in line. and to finish off the night we got stuck on Tatsu not once but twice! Tons of fun.

 

As for the parts on the side of Apocalypse, nothing new there.

I was there today too. Still no air in Superman's queue, one train on Viper, and Lex didn't open til 11:30. Didn't break all day though. The music timing was way off at the top though. It would already be half way through the speech when we got to the top.
