The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

^Also remember that Viper has excellent capacity, and the dispatches always seem quick. That combined can keep lines short all day long.

 

True. Viper only has a line (10min+) when X2 is closed because the guests automatically get in line for the nearest attraction which is Viper.

 

Yeah, I think Viper may be the best of those old Arrow multi-loopers. At least it never tried to beat me to death when I rode it (unlike its cousins elsewhere).

I honestly think MM has gotten lazy. Such a big difference now, then when I worked there. Traveling to other parks I see the care they have for their investments and it makes me sad to think that MM will debut a Muliti-million dollar ride and then a year or two later, it has gone to hell in a handbag!

 

Magic Mountain needs to take a year off for anything new and spend some of the budget on paint, tree care, landscaping, new coaster trains and theming. Those little things can make a big difference.

 

So listen up MM management!

I agree. Anaconda and Vortex are not pleasant but my worst experience with an Arrow multi-looper was GASM @ SFGAdv.

 

This little maneuver into the MCBR embedded the OTSR restraint in my jaw.

Or follow in the lead of other large parks like Kings Island and Great Adventure and take several years off coaster building to fill in the rest of the park with non coaster attractions that make the all day experience better. From the looks of it, TC will make the perfect coaster to hold them over. This coaster should get a lot of attention for years.

I place Tennessee Tornado in its own category. I think it's the best Arrow ride still operating. I guess I should be a bit clearer: Viper is the best of the Arrow "Drachen Fire" type rides.

 

Agreed. I can still at least ride Viper and enjoy it once a visit. I usually skip other Arrows.

How do you guys not love Scream? It has an amazing theme..

Ive always said its not just the lack of theming, it's not that Scream occupies land that was once a parking lot. But they didn't even take the time to paint over the parking lines, thats serious laziness. Coupled with the fact that it's never been painted since it was built and it just gives off the impression that the park doesn't care about it. It's not a bad coaster all things being equal, but it's seriously neglected and always has been. It should have been named Afterthought: The Ride.

 

^ Flashback, Psyclone, and Deja Vu were all coasters that necessitated removal due to condition. They didn't have a choice at all with Flashback and Psyclone, Deja Vu arguably they could have kept it but werent willing to deal with the maintenance headache. Different situations.

I was being sarcastic

Problems is that short term those things aren't things that can be advertised.

It doesn't matter if they can't be advertised. Improving the quality of the park goes a long way, especially in this day and age; attendance will easily go up. It's this kind of thinking, that improving the park simply isn't worth the effort, that will get them nowhere.

 

Would you want to visit the restaurant with less on the menu but offers a high quality experience, or the restaurant with more on the menu but with roaches coming out of the cracks on the floor and being served week old frozen food?

Given that we're getting a new themed land with Colossus, do we reckon, or have we heard if Scream will be getting any new theming, or at least paint? SFMM seems to be pretty consistent with painting nearby rides when a new coaster débuts, after all.

It mentions the new "Back Alley" area here.

 

They could hire local street artists to snazzy up the parking lot beneath, lay down a giant mural that ties in with the theme to Back Alley. The parking lot is literally a giant canvas that can really add a lot to the ride if utilized.

 

Of course, this is Magic Mountain we're talking about, so I'll just keep my fingers crossed for a mediocre paint job.

I don't get all the Scream hate. It's the same ride as Medusa/Bizarro that everyone loves. Yes, the theme job was extraordinarily lazy, and the title is rather generic sounding but the ride itself is fun! Does being built over grass vs pavement really make that huge of a difference to the ride experience?

Yes. Its why Ninja and Gold Rusher are still fun and why Tatsu is better than most of the flyers out there. Flying through trees and terrain is much more fun than a parking lot.
