The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Magic Mountain must be getting something pretty special...all the other Six Flags rumored to get something new next year are already posting teasers. Magic Mountain hasn't posted anything. Have they?

Not a peep. If their intention is to increase anticipation, it's working.

^They also have been one of the Six Flags parks that never really embraced Social Media and the fans as much as some of the other parks. That could also be the reason for no 'teasers'.

 

I agree with you here. I just can't help but ask the question, "Why not?" They have one of the largest populations so close to their front door. It seems to me to have a social media PR person that would be on top of something as this, be a no brainer. Look at how well Paula does for HW, and their local populous and demographic is tiny in comparison.

I'm planning on getting a 2013 pass after they become available tomorrow. It will allow me to head down to SFDK and finally ride Superman before the season is over, and then I'll be able to use it next season to ride the new coaster at SFMM. I'm actually going to be in LA around the 15th, but since the park is only open on weekends then (and apparently that Monday due to all LA county schools having a furlough or something) I probably wont be able to go.

 

Comparing it to Cedair Fair passes it is a much better deal, assuming the prices stay fairly similar. If you want to be able to go to any Cedair Fair park other than the one you bought the pass at its more than double the price, with Six Flags other parks are included at the base price. For most likely just staying in CA SFMM and SFDK for $80 is a much better deal that CGA, Knotts, and Gilroy Gardens (although I've never been to Gilroy) for $180.

I'll be doing the same. Living 60min from SFDK, and seeing the gf in Santa Monica every other week has me sold.

^at least let there be a terrain hugging airtime filled ride that leads into the gimmick inversion

 

You poor thing...

 

I'll be a poor thing if it's reveled tomorrow that it is nothing more then a gimmick inversion and I'm balled up in fetal position crying pulling my hair out screaming WHY SFMM WHY!!!

I can't wait for the announcement. I think this is the most-anticipated coaster for next year. If they are using the name Full Throttle, speed is a given factor. So it should be good!

While we eagerly await the final announcement about Full Throttle in a few hours, today’s rumor has more to do with how the ride will reuse the old monorail tunnel through the mountain itself. The tunnel will not be a station as some have suspected, as the real station will go up near where the Log Jammer station was. Once the train launches through the huge vertical loop, I’m told it will actually rise up the mountain, climbing over the Superman plaza area, before it turns and dives back down and right into the old Metro tunnel on the far side of the park.

What exactly will happen inside the tunnel is a bit of a mystery, as they are hoping to add some kind of special effects in here. The mystery part isn’t that no one knows… it has more to do with the fact that the final budget for the ride is not entirely set, and things like this have a tendency to get cut from the budget once construction starts. (Anyone else remember those fog filled “tunnels” that were supposed to be added to X2?)

What I do know is that your train will apparently come to a stop in the tunnel, and much like Superman: Ultimate Flight from SFDK, your launch out of the tunnel will actually begin with a reverse launch back up the hill to gain a little extra momentum before you fall forward back into the tunnel and launch out at “Full Throttle” into that giant top hat.

Yeah they added Jet Steam because of how popular it was. Not sure how true this really is but my dad always told me Log Jammer was the longest log flume ever built. That may have been true at one time but I'm not sure if that was still true more recently. I mean flume length not ride time, Splash Mountain and other flumes obviously had it beat there.

 

^Oh wow that would be amazing!! A small backwards launch before going forwards again sounds really different for a non impulse, actually full circuit type coaster. This still holds true to the backwards launch out of the tunnel rumor with effects. As far as effects in the tunnel will be, I'm not expecting a whole lot. Hopefully it will at least have some doors on it otherwise I really expect any effects to be marginal as light would bleed in there really badly otherwise. This sounds like a proper re-purpose of the monorail tunnel though!

I just loved that ride, the whole thing just was very complete now this replacement had better be really freaking good or else I'll be totally bummed about a great, classic ride being destroyed. The one flaw I found with LJ was that it deserved to be built at a park where it could be completely surrounded by trees with no view of the rest of the park, KI is the perfect park for this sort of thing, out by Beast.
