2013 - Full Throttle - (1/31/13) I’m scratching my head this evening, as Six Flags Magic Mountain has re-published their Full Throttle detail page, and it’s the same one as before with the false claims about being the “tallest, fastest looping roller coaster in the world”. I don’t get it.

So...now Full Throttle's purpose is useless for being there. This comes across as poor hindsight (SP?) in my eyes.

I really think that SFMM should consider try an get the main signer Stephanie Sanson from "You Only Live Once" to preform at YOLOcoaster grand opening!

Her parents must be so proud.

 

I don't have a problem with that style of music, but you don't go on a show like American Idol and think you are going to get people to listen to it. That just struck me as an idiot teenager thinking she was being cool.

Hello TPR! I have a friend who's studying "abroad" in Los Angeles and wants to go to Magic Mountain. He's never been, and I've only been once 14 years ago, so I am deferring to more informed opinions. Basically, what should he do there? What are must-rides, and is there any sort of order he should hit them up and move about the park? And would it be worth it to get a Flash Pass of any sort? Also he'll be in the city until mid-April, and he has no preference for a weekend to go. In his words, "if there's a weekend that minimizes crowd and/or maximizes enjoyment in some way, that's when I want to go."

So basically what's the best way to get the Magic Mountain experience in one day for someone who's willing to ride whatever?

Is there even a real animated POV of this? I know the announcement trailer was labeled a POV and you basically get the whole ride from that, but still. Their other announced rides got full POV videos.

 

No full POV. But there was never a full animated POV released for Green Lantern, Apocalypse, or Tatsu either. (They had like half a POV for Superman and Lex Luthor.)

To be fair, they don't have post anything. You're lucky you got what you did. They could have just posted a logo and description and called it a day. I highly doubt a POV would do anything to further their marketing campaign.

To be fair, I highly doubt improving operations around the park would do much to improve their overall bottom line. That doesn't mean I wouldn't like to see that happen. There's always things that would be nice to have, and these thoughts/wants are what goes along with being an enthusiast; I'm sure you have your list of things you'd like to see from certain parks as well. Seeing a POV for an upcoming ride just happens to be one of those things for me. I never acted like the park owed anything to anyone either.

IMO, I just posted a thought and wasn't trying to attack the park or say they owed anyone something, it's not like a lack of a full POV isn't going to stop me from going to the park when Full Throttle opens.

Really, since the video gives a good idea of the entire layout already, I am not too dissapointed that they are not showing a full pov. What irritates me more is the situation like Iron Rattler, when they did not post a pov, and the promotional video only shows half the layout.
