The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

Recommended Posts

The last survey I received was about food. Looks like the same survey that was sent out for the other parks. I, or course, shared my opinion with the design of the structure being poor. Also, they need to address the environment in which guests are going to enjoy their food. I some areas of SFMM in particular, the outdoor seating is fairly abysmal.

 

The last ride survey I received is similar to the one that Screamscape reported on. My only takeaway from that survey was that I wish they would actually expand Hurricane Harbor with a new tower or attraction, and not a modification of an exisiting attraction. More attractions for shorter lines, esp. for HH. Enhancing the existing attractions should be an ongoing process irregardless.

To get off topic, I always thought a Behemoth Bowl or Rocket Slide would work well there.

^I agree that SOMETHING more should be added. California still has what...ZERO water coasters? You would think SFMM would jump on that opportunity being the (hashtag) thrill capitol of the world.

Actually there is one in Northern California near Sacramento. (But that kind of more makes your point than less that a little waterpark in Roseville has one and SFHH doesn't.)

Journey to Atlantis, anyone?

^You do know why nobody has replied in 4 hours, right? I mean, you have to know.

 

No, not really. Seeing as the statement from you was 'California has zero water coasters,' which was completely inaccurate in both a) the state having one two hours south and b) hydromagnetic water slides not remotely being coasters, I don't see the problem here.

Is there one in San Diego? The one one in Roseville bills itself as "the only water coaster in California".

I visited the park yesterday with a friend and my nephews who are from out of state and in an effort to make the most of the day we arrived 45 minutes to park opening. While waiting in line at the front gates there were a couple of workers doing some quick in-person surveys.

 

We were approached and asked where we were from and on a scale of 1-10 how excited we were to ride the larger roller coasters in the park. The follow up question was on a scale of 1-10 how we felt about riding Gold Rusher and Ninja. We answered and he said thanks and it concluded the survey.

 

It left me feeling like they were putting out feelers on whether to keep them or not. I personally really enjoy both of those rides and would really be sad to see them go. Of course this is total speculation on my part, but it's what I took from that survey.

 

On a side note the cup sizes have shrunk for a "regular drink" yet they are still just under $4.00. I took a picture of the cup next to a toothpick for size comparison.

$4.00 'regular' size drink...now with smaller cups!

I got a $4.00 large at SFGadv, but it was first filled with ice over the edge, then about 6 ounces of lemonade.

 

This is why I almost always ask for "no ice". I'd rather have to throw away the last of it because it's gotten warm than to feel like I paid $4 for a cup of ice. (Although, I could probably ask them to give me a little water cup filled with ice, and that would solve that problem...)

^That's actually pretty decent.

 

^Given the company's financial status, they need all they can get.

 

The stock is at $40/share. Not sure what you are talking about...

 

Sears Holdings Corporation's stock price is at $38, yet their revenue has been in the red (eleven digits) for years.

 

Well, this whole post-bankruptcy status is what I meant. After the restructuring, I'm sure their creditors are still hot on their tail. Its bank lenders only recently approved to lower the borrowing rates and approved the company's ability to use its $200+ million cash on hand. My OP: the company is still far from being financially stable.

I don't think it has anything to do with cutting corners and has everything to do with encouraging the purchase of a refillable bottle.

 

Many places are downsizing their soda portents lately to appease the whole 'soda is terrible for you' crowd. So, maybe a little of that, but probably more likely a way of making the 15 dollar bottle look like a better deal.

I'm going to be there in two weeks. It'll be on a weekday so I assume crowds won't be horrible, but what approach should we take to hit all the coasters in as little time as possible? The big ones we want to ride are X2, YOLOcoaster, Tatsu, GL:FF and S:EFK. Thanks in advance!

Go to Full Throttle first, then X2, Tatsu, S:EFK, then GL:FF. The gold passes get you in 10 mins early(makes a huge difference) or if you have a Discover Credit Card you get in 5 mins early.

I think you're right about them trying to encourage guests to buy the souvenir bottles. As far as cost goes, if the deal they have with Coke is like Disney's, then they get all their Coke products for free, so drink sales are pure profit for the park. From what I've been told, Coke also supplies the cups (at Disney anyway), so there's no cost to the park in those terms either. The smaller cups would still make sense in order to stretch the product stock further and add onto the already high profits (in fact, Disney downsized their cups too about a year ago- I have proof!), but I think your theory is more correct. It certainly works- I've had a souvenir bottle each year for the past 3 years! The all-day wristbands they offer for purchase on return visits is a great value too- unlimited drinks for about the same price as one regular-size drink!
