The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

 

I've heard from someone that this is supposed to be a "cross of Goliath and NTAG". We'll see how the video turns out. For now, this better be good.

 

Sounds good to me, as long as it isn't the same duration as Goliath

Again, I just don't understand the complaining. If Magic Mountain installed a version of Great America's Goliath that was 5 seconds SHORTER, it would still be, hands down, the best ride in the park.

 

So we are complaining about the name. Complaining about the potential for a longer RMC ride. Complaining about the potential for a shorter RMC ride. Is anyone actually HAPPY or looking forward to the ride at all!?!?

I'm sure what ever RMC has come up with will be amazing, the MM fanboy in me just wants the bragging rights of having the baddest RMC in the line-up thus far. Just a little dreaming/wishful thinking on my part

Sometimes I wish Californians cared a bit less about "bragging rights" and always having to prove how awesome they are and just be happy with getting something that could be GREAT!

I wouldn't even care if all it did was a drop and a turn around, it would still probably the best ride in the park. This IS Magic Mountain (or Mediocre Mountain if you ask me ) were dealing with, after all.

I think it takes moving away from this state (or at least spending a bunch of time out of it) to realize how hollow that particular pursuit is.

 

There are days when I'm totally convinced that I am the only one around here who is actually happy about Colossus' closing so a bigger, badder, better, "put the park on the map again" ride can be built in its place. A lot of people are not unlike those bizarre "SAVE COLOSSUS" protestors who live in a complete fantasy world where Colossus runs in 2014 and beyond exactly like it did in 1978. They might be slightly less militant about it, but still all they can think about is how tragic it is that Colossus is dying and need to have RAGE that it's being closed. Never mind what now has the chance to be built in its place. RAGE RAGE RAGE because closing! Ughh!

 

And these same people, I'm sure, will refuse to ever ride whatever crazy fun new ride shows up one day in Colossus' place right? ... ... ... ...right?

I could care less about the name and layout of this ride. I only care that it will the first RMC coaster on the West Coast, so it will be the closest to me! I wouldn't mind if the it was the longest RMC coaster, but it really isn't the end of the world if it's not. I don't know why anyone would complain about getting a RMC coaster and at least the name isn't going to be Iron/Steel Colossus.

I don't understand why people are still having their doubts.. RMC made incredible rides this year and have a solid resume, and it's still crazy to think we will most likely (but undoubtedly at this point) have one in California.

fully agree with this. would easily be the best in the park.

Because it's SFMM. That's why.

Sounds like one side will resemble the original a bit more. Could we see a more "gentle" Iron Horse for that side, or topper? Or is SFMM just doing a Cedar Fair style diversion? Maybe "Twisted" will be an inversion-filled Iron Horse and "Classic" would be an airtime-focused Iron Horse.

As awesome as that sounds, it's most likely a page about the history of Colossus.

they are all dead links for me, except for the classic colossus one. i just assume, i know, never assume, that it will just keep the old stats around for people to view.

Alright! So RMC colossus confirmed! I know it was obvious for years now but those links are the first official piece of confirmation from six flags. I'm happy.

 

 

And if the original guy with the "sources" is right, then itll be the longest RMC. Good luck filling that with inversions only, it sounds like an airtime machine!!!! Don't kill my hype Rob! I'm so excited!

Not to sidetrack the conversation back to roller coasters currently operating.... Headed to the park this Friday - I'm expecting pretty good crowds since it kicks off the holiday weekend. I know back in the day it was always "run to X2 first" - is still that the recommended thing to do? Or do you go to Full Throttle/Green Lantern first? I was thinking X2 then Green Lantern. (And no, I'm not thinking FlashPass as I just want to get in ride the few rides I haven't been on and X2 and get out).

Goliath looks like it could stop 5 seconds earlier and still pack a punch. I don't know how those folks at Great America are not having their minds exploded by that ride.

 

No ride Great America has built in the last 20 years has had the reception Goliath has. I can't wait to see season attendance numbers, but I would not be surprised if the ride has added over 1 million more guests over last season. The park has had it's most crowded year in several decades. It helps that it has a 48" ride height and was marketed correctly. Batman was the last ride to have this kind of impact.

 

However about the only complaint I have heard is that it is too short. It carries tons of speed back to the station. It feels like a shorter El Toro to me.

 

It's impact on other lines has been very noticeable. Great America will have to figure out where to reroute the que line this offseason. It has been hundreds of feet beyond Iron Wolfs overflow que all season, taking up a midway area and wrapping around the train station, which has left that ride closed all season.

I know back in the day it was always "run to X2 first" - is still that the recommended thing to do? Or do you go to YOLOcoaster/Green Lantern first? I was thinking X2 then Green Lantern. (And no, I'm not thinking FlashPass as I just want to get in ride the few rides I haven't been on and X2 and get out).

These days its a pickem between YOLO and X2. Personally I usually go to YOLO first because X2's line tends to die more in the latter half of the day than YOLO, but you could go either way. Whichever you choose, its a good idea to go to the back of the park next because with most of the people starting at X2/YOLO and going from there the back of the park is always dead in the mornings. I'd go YOLO, GL, Batman/Riddler, Apocalypse, then work your way from there. Also I bet Scream! is probably going to be super dead all day every day since it was relatively unpopular to begin with and now is all by itself in that corner.
