The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Just got this email from the park saying they are going to make a huge announcement and they invite you to guess what it is. I thought this was interesting.....

 

What new attraction do you think is coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain for the 2013 season? We won’t reveal the new items until August 30, but we promise it’s going to be amazing, just like in years past. We like to keep you guessing, so tell us what you think is coming to the park next season.

 

What can you expect for the 2013 season? Here’s a reminder of the previous attractions we’ve launched throughout the years:

 

 

 

also...key word...."launched." could mean something

Arrrrgh!! This suspense is killing me....It sucks so bad there are people who know what it is already! Where's Amanda? I'm so excited now, I would be happy whatever it is....Premier shuttle, Intamin blitz, Kingda Ka, Mack launch... We know for sure there's a tunnel, launch, and it's 'huge' (inversion?). Aug 30 just now seems so far away. I hope more little details keep spilling till then!

I wonder if the launch going to be something similar to Volcano. You know. A first launch, a long turn around maybe following the curve of the monorail, and then a second launch up into an element, in this case a loop.

 

Can you imagine a loop big enough to perhaps put a circle around Superman right before Superman ascends the tower?

 

Also I was wondering if any part of the new "items" will take advantage of the old Flashback area.

From page #2521, I'm still going with this....

 

 

Wouldn't it be interesting if Six Flags built Superman at SFDK from Premier Rides as a 'test' for this type of coaster and built the bigger version of it, 'Full Throttle' at SFMM for 2013?

 

Im going to call it and go with that as my guess. Not the same ride but launched with the world record loop, similar to Superman.

This is so awesome. We're so spoiled out here on the West Coast to get new attractions all the time. Even if they're not always the biggest installations, we always have something to look forward to with so many parks around.

 

The way the park is hyping this up it sounds like it's going to be a big deal. I am stoked. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning!!!

^^ 5th in 3 years? Where do you get that?

 

In the last 10 years

 

2003 - Scream (wasn't even supposed to go to SFMM in the first place)

2004 - Nothing

2005 - Nothing

2006 - Tatsu - Removal of Psyclone

2007 - Removal of Flashback

2008 - Nothing

2009 - Apocalypse

2010 - Nothing

2011 - S:EFK (doesn't count) - Road Runner Express - Green Lantern - Removal of Deja Vu

2012 - No Coaster

 

So in 10 years that's a total addition of 5 coasters and the removal of 3 coasters (Deja Vu, Psyclone, Flashback). So that's a net gain of 2 coasters. 3 I guess since Flashback shouldn't really count. But Green Lantern is just as crappy as that ride was.

 

You also have to factor in they've removed 2 water rides, at least 1 flat (Tilt a Whirl that I can think of off the top of my head).

 

SFMM is also a park that doesn't add non-coaster rides, well at least not until this year. Before LL:DOD I guess the last non-coaster ride was the relocated Scrambler?

Now they are just trying to be the best.

 

I don't follow your logic. Should they not be trying to be the best? They have a great waterpark, kids areas, and they are a flagship six flags parks. Flaships need to have big guns like Tatsu, X2, and now Full Throttle. Coasters are what gets people through the turnstiles my friend.

This park doesn't need another coaster. This is, what, the fifth in three years? They can stick with the amount they have. Now they are just trying to be the best.

You don't know much about MM. If you did you'd realize they focus 99.9% of their time and effort on coasters, this is the go-to coaster park. Nothing more nothing less. SF tried the "multiple coaster plan" back in the early 2000's, and it worked for MM. They're still going with that momentum.

I like how "Now they are just trying to be the best" is negative thing?

Oh, sorry, I missed following that. Where was Scream originally supposed to go? The decision was probably a last minute one, explaining why it is a parking lot coaster in a forgotten corner as opposed to a star attraction at the top of the mountain.

Just wondering, what SFMM rides have single rider lines?

According to the Ride Hopper iPhone app, Batman, Scream, Goliath, and Riddler's Revenge have single rider lines. I’ve also heard from various sources that Green Lantern, Lex Luther Drop of Doom, and Viper also have single rider lines.

I'm wondering exactly what rides have SRLs and where they're located (separate path, up exit ramp, etc)

Thanks

Green Lantern

 

Drop of Doom

 

Riddlers Revenge

 

Viper

 

Revolution.

 

 

Neither X2 or Tatsu have them.

We're so spoiled out here on the West Coast to get new attractions all the time.

Um.... While 2012 has been much more fruitful than previous years, I gotta be honest, there hasn't been *THAT* many amazing "gotta plan a trip for" attractions that have been built on the west coast in the past ten years.

 

I mean, we lived in California from 2003 - 2011, and other than a couple of coasters at SFMM (Tatsu & Terminator - and even those are kind of a stretch), I didn't really feel there was THAT much to be "spoiled" by...

 

When the west coast gets an "El Toro", "Expedition GeForce", "Superman: Ride of Steel", "Kumba" or "Montu", then you can call yourselves spoiled! But until then, it's a bit more like "Wannabe spoiled!"

I agree, living in CA my whole life I'm sure I have a different view than those on the outside looking in. While We do have a number of unique rides that are the only of their kind in the US, we still lack anything that is a truly good ride.

 

CA certainly makes up for it in other areas though.

 

I'm sure this new ride will be fun, but I'm sure it will still focus on being unique rather than just being a good all around ride.

CA is spoiled by quantity, but not at all by quality. It is almost humorous that in the state with the most coasters and theme parks, the steel coaster wih the most airtime is 30 feet tall. Second place goes a coaster at a Disney park. In terms if wood coasters, the best one in the entire state is at small seaside park with two adult coasters.

 

With how many coasters there are in California, there is no way every coaster can be a world class coaster. However, that certainly doesn't mean there should be no world class coasters.*

 

SFMM is the park with the most coasters in the world making them the worst offender. I will most likely be disappointed by Full Throttle.

 

*An exception may be made to that statement IF Ghostrider gets a full refurbishment, as in topper track on the entire ride, and new trains.
