The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I'm sorry. This complaining about a ride's first drop before any concept art, videos, or stats are released is the most ridiculous thing I've read on here in a long time. RMC knows what they are doing. I mean, look at Outlaw Run, Goliath, New Texas Giant, Iron Rattler, and Medusa. All of three of those that were open last year ranked in the top ten in the Mitch Hawker polls. I haven't heard that many reviews of Medusa yet, but of the ones I have read they all agree that Medusa is spectacular. Goliath has also gotten rave reviews (even though many agree that it is too short).

 

Enthusiasts are really getting harder and harder to please. Sure, in some cases it makes sense, but the amount of people whining about an RMC coaster (before it's announced!) is ridiculous.

I'm looking forward to RMC Colossus. The only RMC product I've been on is topper track on Tremors and to have a RMC ride in the same time zone will be nice.

 

There's no doubt this will be the best coaster on the west coast, regardless of the precise ratio of inversions and ejector hills.

 

I hope this will be the best - and last - coaster addition to SFMM, I doubt they will need any more after this. Their long list of things to fix might be a bigger priority than going for 25 coasters.

although i do enjoy some of the coasters, i would welcome SFMM to use a previous coasters space for something newer and better. i'd only be upset if they got rid of drop of doom, which isn't even a coaster.

I need a drink after reading through all these recent post.

 

I can't get over everyone complaining about a drop on a roller coaster that may or may not be twisted. Hell for all we know it could become dueling coasters and RMC will have one with a straight drop and one with a drop that inverts over the straight drop. However, apparently half of you won't ride it because the drop twist...

 

I seriously can't get over the complaints about a ride we know NOTHING about...

My head is hurting reading some of these posts and the complaints about a first drop on something that is just speculation at this point

No amount of Advil seems to help.

 

 

Seriously, aghh. So many complaints about something no one has any details on and then to say SFMM could have had a top 10 as if we have already been given data.

This is all getting to meta at this point - complaints about the complaints about the complaints about the complaints!

 

Anyway, I guess I am just greedy but I, too, am surprised at the lack of photo updates from the park - both here and elsewhere! Seems we saw the pics of the crane working on the lift motor, and that's it! Sounds like more work has been progressing, be fascinating to see/hear an update.

 

Also, anyone hear anything on the Sky Tower? I guess it's elevator issues, but has there actually been anything going on with that - or have they just mothballed it for now?

if i lived closer i'd go over and take pics. traffic and 50 miles keeps me away. really wanted to go this week, but not happening. seems every now and then i hear/read nothing much has changed tho.

 

maybe the tower is down cause they are hiding the track in the trees and don't want anyone to see it.

If you want flat rides go to Knott's. The drop of doom is enough for me at a park I go to for roller coasters.

 

Yeah, but they are loosing out on a market to be tapped. They have plenty of room to add a frisbee, and maybe a Disk-O. Add some rides like that, and maybe they would get more than the coaster enthusiast to visit the park. I have trouble getting people to go with me to the park...not because of them of hating on Six Flags, but not everybody is into coasters, coasters, and more coasters. As much as I love them, I also really like frisbees and Disk-Os.

 

And yes, those are the people that go to Knott's....business Six Flags is missing out on.

Best I can tell from my UN-trained eye is not much of anything going on. Sure there is a pile of scrap wood that appears to perhaps be from Colossus. But i sure cant tell where it might have been removed from. There is a welder type set up on the top of main lift. To me it still looks like a working Colossus but again with my trained eye I know its not working and only things missing are the trains.

Am I like the only one that actually likes the name twisted colossus? I think it sounds pretty darn cool. And I don't have an opinion on the drop cause like I'm still trying to figure out how it's going to like get around the inversion before the drop....yeah but idk whatever.
You haven't seen any B&M Wing Coasters have you?

I love the name, and now that the twisted drop has been hinted at, I love it even more. Most people will still call it Colossus anyway no matter what they put in front of it.

The only logical way in which so many people could complain about a drop like this would be if Togo somehow came back to life and decided to do a drop like the rumored one like TC. Then I could understand complaining about an unannounced coaster.

 

And I know there is a lot of complaining about complaining on the Carowinds thread. However, that is a bit of a different story, because the complete layout of Fury as already been announced, and rides with some similar features have already been built, so people can more rightfully have an opinion on the layout for the time being. However, you cannot have an opinion on an announcement that does not yet exist.

 

RMC could make this their worst creation by far, and it would still be the best coaster on the west coast. Manta and Gold Striker are probably the best coasters in CA, but both of these pale in compriso to almost any large Intamin, any RMC, or anything from Chance since Phantom's Revenge opened.
