Maybe they can make the closure useful and make some final modifications to the ride. Basically, this would be a great opportunity to possibly modify the tunnel (make it a larger diameter so that they can take off the arm covers on the cars). Wishful thinking but highly doubted.

I did hear rumors about this, but it'd be miracle if the park does take advantage of this opportunity to redesign the tunnels.

How about next winter they close it and have a "NYE Ball Drop" from the tower with a large concert their at the park, some mega-band! Never mind, thats kinda lame.

 

Maybe they should close the Slingshot and use that instead. At least it wouldn't upset anybody.

"YOLO" Banned...

 

List of "banned" words for 2013

 

Lake Superior State University 2013 List of Banished Words

 

YOLO (you only live once)

 

"Stands for 'You Only Live Once' and used by wannabe Twitter philosophers who think they've uncovered a deep secret of life. Also used as an excuse to do really stupid things, such as streaking at a baseball game with YOLO printed on one's chest. I only live once, so I'd prefer to be able to do it without ever seeing YOLO again." Brendan Cotter, Grosse Pte. Park, Mich.

 

"Used by teens everywhere to describe an action that is risky or unconventional, yet acceptable because 'you only live once.' Who lives more than once?" P.P., Los Angeles, Calif.

 

 

"Just gives people,especially teens, a reason to do stupid things. I find it annoying and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone here." Daniel, Hickory, NC

 

"Only a real yoyo would use the term 'yolo.'" Sandra McGlew, White Lake, Mich.

 

Lake superior is not particularly near cedar point imo, so why do they do that?

So could YOLO's construction actually pick up now? I read somewhere that something something finial budget they had to wait for the end of the year to start building. So they might be starting soon.

This may actually be true (while also kinda pathetic) since Six Flags uses a calendar year end as their fiscal year end.

 

What is Six Flags’ fiscal year end?

The company’s fiscal year end is December 31 of each calendar year.

Maybe they'll buy Hershey's water coaster.

It probably has higher capacity than Lex Luthor or Green Lantern!

 

--Robb "It's funny because it's TRUE!" Alvey

Haha, No way they are lower in capacity than Roller Soaker. I grew a beard standing in that line.

For the second year in a row, the Magic Mountain park set a new record for their business performance and was also the top performer out of all the Six Flags parks. The even bigger news is that for the very first time ever, Magic Mountain broke the all-time company earnings record that has been held by Six Flags Great America for many years. So now, not only is Six Flags Magic Mountain the Thrill Capital of the World with more roller coasters than any park on the planet, they are also the top performing Six Flags park out of the entire chain. Additionally, Magic Mountain also leads the company in overall Guest Satisfaction.

 

 

Here are some highlights of Magic Mountain’s financial performance for 2012:

 

Highest profits in the company – ever!

Highest total guest spending in the company – ever!

Highest single revenue month

Highest single day revenue

Highest catered ticket and meal revenue in the company

 

In addition to their financial performance, here are some ride statistics:

 

Ride down time came in at 1.9% (under their 3% threshold)

A total of 22.5 million rides delivered

Eight attractions delivered over 1 million rides each

So, SFMM has the highest revenue of any Six Flags park, but they cannot afford extra trains, large enough maintenance crews, a sufficient number of staff, or high capacity rides?

 

Maybe that's exactly why they are the top grossing Six Flags park. Sadly, it proves that their business tactic is working.

Revenue is not the same as profit, and the lack of any mentioning of profit in the report leads me to believe the park isn't hugely profitable compared to some of the other parks in the chain, including smaller ones. I bet SFMM also has some of the highest total operating costs in the chain as well. I do wish the park would invent more in higher capacity rides though.

^The report does say that the park has the highest profit in the chain as well.

 

That being said, I will applaud them for reducing their down time, even if the removal of Deja Vu helped significantly. In fact, this is another reason I strongly dislike FT. To me, it would be a perfectly acceptable addition if it were at a smaller park with a very limited budget, and, this proves that SFMM is not a small or low profit park.

Getting rid of their water rides should help with lowering the downtime statistic, considering they're all closed through the winters.

 

I don't think that is really considered downtime since the ride is closed due to the weather not a problem with the ride.

Good for the park then, hopefully they don't go back to wasting it all on huge coasters.

I was about to say they already did with Full Throttle, but then I realized it is small for them being a 3-second WEEEE!!

Also in 2012, I was the most awesome person on the planet.*

I'm pretty sure the report is referring to "unscheduled" downtime.

 

For example, if you "plan" on not having Jet Stream open until 11:30 on a 100 degree day (yes, I was there when this happened) it doesn't count as downtime, it's just part of the operating schedule.

 

As others have said, all this report proves is their plan of catering to the YOLO crowd is actually working.

Jet Stream opened at 11:30 every day this summer. At least that I saw.

 

I'm gonna head down to the park around noon today to try and get some rides in. Hope it isn't too crowded. I rode eye rethink but Tatsu and Colossus on Monday and I was only there for 4 hours. Hoping for a day just as good if not better than Monday today.

 

I was the last one on Apocalypse in 2012. Just to prove that the world didn't end, and if it did, I would be the last one to die.
