The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

Recommended Posts

Give them a break though, it's not like they've been marketing theme park attractions for 51 years or anything....

 

And look how good of a job they're doing!!!

 

Isn't SFMM one of their bigger money makers in the whole chain?

 

From my recollection, It trails SFDK, SFFT, SFoT, and SFGAdv.

 

 

I think the parks they get the most profit from are SFMM, SFGAdv., and SFGAm, those are their flagship parks. I also highly doubt SF will close SFMM to the person who said that. that is the most ridiculous rumor ever, that is like CF closing down CP. SFMM is the top thrill park in the world. Does anyone know about the construction update on YOLOcoaster btw?

^Flag Ship doesn't always mean huge profit. I know when I worked at SFDK, we were 3rd in the chain for Season Pass sales (behind SFMM and SFGAdv) and that we were the park with the highest profits thanks to variety of animal and theme park merch, added experiences like Dolphin Swims and Elephant Rides, and various other things. Size of the park doesn't always mean largest profits. Don't forget the more rides you build means more staff you have to hire to operate and maintain as well as more spent on parts and upkeep.

that is true, but I'm pretty sure SFMM will not be closed, although I do remember hearing it was up for sale before during 2006. Like I said, SFMM is the top-thrill park in the world, and I doubt that a park that's getting a world-record breaking coaster next year will close down anytime soon.

I'm currently at Valencia for the weekend for Six Flags Magic Mountain. The new slingshot's name is "Slingshot", yea, I know very creative...

 

Anyways, today was Slingshot's first day in operation and it looks pretty nice. Sky Tower has a really bad view of Slingshot which is where most of the pictures of Slingshot are from. I think that Six Flags did a good job on making Slingshot look professional.

 

About the Full Throttle track pieces, I saw none in the overflow parking.

 

Also, near Apocalypse, I saw some cylindrical re-bar pieces. Those might be for Full Throttle's footers. SFMM has NOT dug footers yet for Full Throttle.

Yes parts of something are sitting in the overflow lot on the "riverside" near parking for J4 right alongside the employee entrance road... and a nice big huge green forklift. So look again tomorrow as didn't look like it was going anywhere soon.

I don't go on upcharge attractions, but it looks decent. The pictures make it seem ugly.

I'm going to try to look for it from Sky Tower today. I don't have time to look for it from the parking lot since I'm walking to SFMM from my hotel.

The view from Sky Tower might not be that great as the parts are very similar in color to the ground and they aren't really huge sweeping pieces. They are rather small pieces of the overall puzzle that might become Throttle.

Looks like there's some off ride footage of SingShot on YouTube already. Looks pretty awesome!

 

It looks like every other slingshot in the world. I guess if you've never been on one at a carnival or state fair, it's awesome? Maybe?

Well there is always one thing I wondered about Slingshot rides. Now the time nears that I'm getting closer to see one in real life I believe its time to ask it.

Is the first shot like the launch of a shoot 'n drop or something? I don't know the rides seem fun but I'm afraid of them somehow. I want to know are they really scary or should I ride at least one?

 

Something completely different. Nice to see that there is finally some track over there. I hope they already did something on the footers or els they're going to take too long.
