^Better yet, waterslides need to be equipped with vehicles fixed to the slide via upstops and guide wheels. And these vehicles should be equipped with restraints. To ensure nobody will go down without clearance, they will feature air gates, restraint checks and finally dispatch. No wait, that would then be pretty much a coaster

 

What really needs to be done is just ban idiots from life.

It doesn't matter if the man was at fault or not. The general public will view this as an accident at an amusement park...Which is never good P.R. for an amusement park.

 

The GP can sniff out an idiot. This sounds like a case of the karma.

Agreed; if enough people know the facts, the stupidity will be at the forefront of people's minds and comments. On the other hand, as with anything else, of course some people are going to get things twisted or make up crazy rumors.

 

I just don't see the motivation for this. If he isn't just plain crazy, the only thing that would make sense is some kind of encouragement from others (i.e. a dare). Simply skipping a long line and/or sliding incorrectly clearly isn't anywhere near a comprehensible reason.

 

I wonder if there's any reasonable way to prevent things like this when someone is so sneaky and determined to break rules. I guess it's one of those things that will probably only happen once, though.

It's a funny show just sometimes the jokes are really annoying IMO.

 

Its fun watching people fail spectacularly.

Yes, yes it is!!

 

Wipeout is filmed about 10 miles from SFMM near the 14 and Sand Canyon at Sable Ranch (25948 sand canyon rd Santa Clarita, CA 91387) just google it and see the sets when you zoom in real tight. Map To Wipeout set

Hey guys! i'm from Sweden and im going to visit Magic Mountain soon.. i'm just wondering about a thing.

 

Im thinking of going there Saturday 3 of november, do you guys think that there will be a lof of people there that day? Because im considering buying a flash pass for me and my brother, because we want to ride all the roller coaster and hopefully some of them more than once.

 

So, what do you guys think? Should i get the flash pass? or will i be fine without it?

 

thanks!

^^ It's a Saturday so I doubt it will be dead, but you probably won't need a flash pass just to get through the day unless you have an abnormally high intolerance for long queues like I do I'm going on Sunday 10/21 and I'm expecting a similar crowd..busy due to Fright Fest but not crazy. I'm still getting a gold flash pass even though I could probably do without, and I may splurge on an X2 reservation if I'm not able to sneak a couple rides in in the morning before the line gets long.

 

Speaking of X2..I've heard many people say (And I've seen that it happens) that the X2 line all but disappears at around 4:30 in the afternoon on a lot of days, but I'm curious why that happens.

I run to X-2 in the morning. Then I go to Tatsu. Later in the day I check the lines for Tatsu for a second ride. Then I'll go on Viper. From Vipers hill I take a look at the line for X-2. If it's not too long and they are running two trains, then yes you can get in at 30 to 60 mins.

Right I do that as well but Im talking about later in the day when it will often drop down to 10-15 minutes at about 4:30pm. Last time I was there a lady passed out on the ride at about 4:00 and they shut it down for testing so I didn't get to see this first hand.

I'll make it a habit to check at 4:30 from now on.

I can't believe people still run to X2 in the morning. The line will die down to 30 minutes or less at around 4:30 in the afternoon. The only real explanation is they actually been doing really well on dispatches and the back of the park is significantly more crowded that time of day, so no one is in the front riding X2.

I'm wondering what sort of overzealous stupid rule Six Flags will now institute after this kid fell off the slide.

 

The actual facts of what happened will have to come out first. News reports had witness accounts that contradicted what SFMM's spokeswoman stated. The circumstances surrounding how he got up there and what SFHH employees did or did not do to stop him will be key.
