The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Even with my degree in ME, I am completely confused and clueless at this point.

 

But I will say this blinking graphic is GREAT. I could look at this all night! It's so purty!

 

Attempting to get back on topic (anyone wanna ride bikes?), I'm curious to the difference in the system MACK uses on blue fire Megacoaster. Supposedly the energy absorbed at the final brakes is re-used. How much and do any of our US *magnet* coasters do that?

 

Anyone know how much it costs to fire a train on one of these mag-launch coasters? Hrm.. now my brain is spinning. I wonder how much a standard lift hill costs. Maybe new topic time. Or bed time. Or time to ride bikes

I have actually thought of that approach for Superman. It would feel like a 1st generation freefall on steriods. However, the issue is they already have Lux Luthor. S:EFK is not an intense ride, but it is very "fun" to be able to look straight at the ground 400 feet in the air.

I'm thinking about going to Hurricane Harbor tomorrow, but now I'm thinking about that Gold Pass. If you buy the 2013 Gold Pass now, I know you get admission to Magic Mountain in 2012, but do you also get Hurricane Harbor and parking for 2012?

 

Because if you do...well, $30 for Hurricane Harbor tomorrow, $17 for parking tomorrow, $40 for Magic Mountain in 2013 to ride Full Throttle, $17 for parking for THAT trip...well, that's already $104. Can the 2013 Gold Pass cover all of that?

Enjoy Gold Pass benefits including Hurricane Harbor admission, Season Parking, unlimited visits for the rest of 2012 plus all of the 2013 season with no blackout days, over $300 in park discounts and free admission for friends on select days. Available with 12 Easy Payments!

 

Sounds like it but to be sure... (661) 255-4100

Thanks for the phone number, there actually was somebody there ready to answer my question, even at 8PM on a day when SFMM wasn't even open!

 

And apparently the answer is yes! Is it just me, or does the Gold Pass seem like a REALLY good deal?

All the season passes are always a great deal if you plan on visiting any park more than once.

You know, I was recently at Pacific Park (Santa Monica Pier), and rode their only roller coaster. (which went excruciatingly slow.) and noticed that while entering the final brake run, the train pops up and gives some decent airtime for it's speed. This makes me wonder how SFMM can let little rides like that get away with more airtime then they already have.

Pocky is a good ride, but it is one of the weaker new GCI's, IMO. It starts off excellent, but seems to lose much of its pace after the fly-through. Also, I have never gotten any airtime past this point, aside from one small pop on the dip out of it. Hopefully, Gold Striker will demonstrate the full potential of what GCI can do.

 

With the mountain's trend of liking to build cheaper rides, I do wonder what they will come up with next, because they clearly want thrill rides, but want to look for the most thrill for best value. I wonder what other ride designs offer high thrill for low cost. Hmmm
