The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

I legit see world's tallest Giga. It would be from B&M.

 

I'm hearing they may remove viper and put in a Giga or at least a hyper. This is only a rumor and may be years away. Also I'm hearing the sky tower repairs of the elevator may be too high a cost to govern reopening it any time soon.

We're getting an RMC hybrid and you guys are complaining about what their next coaster might be? I agree that after TC opens, I don't really care if what comes next isn't something super exciting.

 

Hoping today at the park won't be too busy and X2 will be open long enough for me to ride it! It's been a while since my last few visits it was closed (or like last time, I missed it because it closed for some time).

Why would MM get another hyper? And I don't see Six Flags spending the $$$ for a giga either... I hope the next ride is one of those GG shuttle woodies. But I'll just enjoy TC until then, I'm sure it will bring in enough revenue where they wouldnt need to add anything for a few years.

...And that's why SFMM will always be SFMM. The Sky Tower is basically their icon. And there's a possibility they will again just let it rot away. Really hope that rumor isn't true.

This is why, especially with Twisted Colossus going up already, I would be so much happier if the following year was just paint and repairs. Fix the Sky Tower, paint Scream, paint Tatsu, and shine things up.

 

I can dream.

 

I agree with this SO much! Add refurbing some buildings and I would have a SFMM that I would love to visit often.

Yes. After TC, I would be so happy if they spend the entire next decade adding no new rides, just focusing on park repairs only. The addition of TC is exactly what is park needs to round up its coaster lineup, so after that they should just stop building coasters entirely and focus on making a guests day great while he is not on a coaster.

I'm not sure SFMM needs a giga... It seems kind of redundant to have a Giga and Goliath... I know the CW and Carowinds argument with both having a hyper and giga... But the reality is that they both have an airtime filled hyper and a speed filled Giga... Goliath is king of a mix of both; and at 255 ft, kind of sits in the middle..

 

I could see them building the first 400ft traditional, possibly on the south side of the property? How far out does the park own?

 

SFMM is definitely a park I've been thinking about with their future, they have amost every style of coaster... It's hard to see what direction there going to go in...

2016- Flat

 

2017-Waterpark

 

2018-Giga

 

2017 and 2018 may switch.

 

What I expect:

 

2016- Kiddie Coaster

2017- Removal of a major ride

2018- Small coaster addition + refurbishing of an old coaster

2019- nothing

2020- Park closes

 

 

What I hope for:

 

2016: Focus on repainting rides, redo theming, improve ride operations, improve marketing

2017: 2 Crazy innovative flat rides that the GP will love

2018: Worlds tallest coaster, who wouldn't want to visit the park?

2019: Nothing

2020: Everyone complains about the park being a mess again. Just like old times

Why would you expect that? Is the park not profitable?

Sounds like the Knott's octopus took a stop at Magic Mountain!

 

Was just at the park, X2 was closed because of the wind and when I went back later, the employee said they got a call saying to not open it at all today. IDK if there's something wrong with it or if it's just cost/laziness since the park wasn't too busy today. Do they do that??

 

I also never saw Viper or Lex run, there may have been others but those were the only ones I noticed.

 

The lines didn't seem too long, about 30 minutes for Tatsu, 30 min for Superman, 15 for Goliath. YOLO line seemed pretty short but got a bit longer towards the end, I got in line around 5:30 and found out why. It was having problems. It went back to working but then right around 6:00 went down again. People were stuck in the tunnel for about 15 minutes. They got it back working and I ended up being the 2nd to last train and rode in the front. I haven't ridden in the front in a long time and absolutely loved it! I actually think I prefer the front than the back! It had problems again so we couldn't get off right away but they got us off relatively quick.

 

Also, I ended up riding with a man visiting from Brazil who said his friends told him Magic Mountain was the best amusement park in the states. I was kinda like, "Umm, I disagree, there's a better one in Ohio. But Magic Mountain does have the most coasters!" He also did a hilarious parody of how rough Ghostrider is now. He couldn't remember the name but he said, "The one that goes like this," and shook himself up. LOL!!

On most days if it is closed due to winds, if they can't get it open in the first two hours it won't even open at all. Even if the wind has stopped. They just make the employees make excuses so they don't have to open it.

 

The rule pretty much is if hey can't open it within the first half hour of the day, they aren't gonna open it at all.

 

There has been one exception to this: I've seen it open at 5PM with a 9PM closing. This was four years ago, however.
