The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

I will be making a short trip out to California in mid December for a wedding. I plan on hitting up Knott's and SFMM, what are the lines usually like in December? Thanks!

Check their website. They are not open every day in December. https://www.sixflags.com/magicmountain/events/all

 

As far as crowds I think at this point it is to early to judge. They are now promoting a "Holiday in the Park" This year. Traditionally december weekdays were dead and sunday is better then Saterday (Which I imagine will still be the case). However Holiday in the Park is a special event like Fright Fest which I assume will attract more crowds then a typical december day in the past.

 

I always recommend budget a fast pass and you can buy it the day of if the lines are rediciously long.

Wow. A little eerie, someone the other day noticed charred wood on the lift and remarked that it looked like they were using a cutting torch to cut the rails and hoped the ride didn't catch on fire. Two days later thats exactly what happened. I also just heard that apparently RMC had the same thing happen on Goliath.

My initial thought was sparks from cutting of the rails. Using a torch to cut the rails on a wooden coaster does not exactly seem like a good idea. I'm sure we will know soon. Either way, it will be interesting to see how much of the structure will have to be removed.

UPDATE! Official statement from Six Flags Magic Mountain:

 

"The fire at the top of the lift hill at Colossus is now out. The park was closed today and there were no injuries."

A fire erupted on the Colossus ride at Magic Mountain in Valencia.

 

Firefighters are on scene.

 

The Colossus was shut down on Aug. 16 to be replaced by a newer version of the ride, which was scheduled to open in 2015.

Another story: http://ktla.com/2014/09/08/firefighters-respond-to-report-of-fire-at-magic-mountains-colossus-roller-coaster/

 

Firefighters were responding to a blaze that was damaging the iconic Colossus roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain Monday afternoon.

 

The Los Angeles County Fire Department was called to the scene at the amusement park in Santa Clarita just after 1:30 p.m., fire Inspector Scott Miller said.

 

Photos posted to Twitter showed a column of smoke appearing to rise from a high point on the ride.

 

When Sky5 arrived, the wooden track of the roller coaster was charred black and part of it collapsed. Several fire engines were on scene and firefighters were dousing the flames.

 

The wooden coaster ceased operating in August after 36 years in operation. It was set to be replaced by a hybrid ride called “Twisted Colossus.”

 

The popular ride dropped 100 feet and reached speeds of up to 60 mph.
