The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

I find it interesting that people are saying Batman backwards is less intense than forwards, as I always figured it would be more intense. I'd love to be able to try this out, but I won't be anywhere near CA any time soon.

 

And as someone that worked at a park, you'd be amazed where people will attempt to have sex...

^I'm the opposite; I hope SFMM gets a Sky Screamer. They could ALWAYS use another flat and it would be in a beautiful setting. Plus, Windseeker got removed so it'll be a new experience in the area. Although it may be a while until we see it because next year may be the "big 20th" coaster.

 

I wouldn't exactly refer to SFMM as a beautiful setting. Nor is the view of the Santa Clarita & San Fernando Valleys all that awe inspiring.

 

Good point, but it'd probably be more interesting than the concrete and asphalt that we saw on Windseeker at KBF. Either way, I wouldn't be too surprised if we saw one in the near future as it is the only major SF park without a Star Flyer.

 

I'm actually a big fan of the classic California look of the foothills surrounding SFMM and the Santa Clarita Valley (grass hills with dotted oaks), but I'm also a big fan of California in general so my opinion is a bit skewed

 

Regardless, I would go ahead and say that aside from Pacific Park, SFMM has the nicest surrounding of any park in the LA area.

When they run Colossus backwards, do they run both tracks backwards, 1 track backwards, or 1 track backwards and 1 track forwards? We'll be there in June and I'm hoping backwards won't be the only option. I happen to enjoy Colossus, but am not a fan of backwards coasters.

I do think the natural setting and surroundings of SFMM is a bit underappreciated (no matter how they try to ruin it or fail to make full use of it). Then again, I too am a major fan of the California scenery (and not much else these days!).

 

Now, back to the sex talk?

1 side is ran backwards and the other is ran forward.

 

Well, one side is abandoned, so wouldn't there only be one side running backwards and one side closed, like how Colossus operated in Fright Fest 2013?

That's how it's been in recent seasons. I'm assuming they will be running both B&M trains on one side and nothing on the other. I'm guessing it would require quite a bit of work to get the other side open at this point because it looks like it hasn't been touched (read: inspected or maintaned) for a long time, the chain isn't even lubricated anymore it's all rusted.

B&M has trains for wooden coasters like colossus?

^ If I stand corrected, the only wooden coaster trains they made were for Psyclone, but since it got torn down, they now reuse the trains for Colossus Backwards, since they can't run the regular trains reversed due to no headrests.

It's on Wikipedia, so it must be true.

 

It also had the only wooden roller coaster trains ever built by Bolliger & Mabillard.

 

I never knew that.
