Are the season 2015 perks up yet?

 

They aren't for me. Might not be up until march I think, because a lot of SF parks are closed for the winter season. First time I've had season passes since the perk system existed.

 

I miss the rewards you get for coming, it was some beta program in like 2010. like a free soda, a one time use front of the line pass, etc. it rewarded you for coming back and using your pass.

Good deal, pleasant surprise that you got such a quick and direct answer.
The Twisted Colossus pics are amazing.

Is there gunna be a WCB again for 2015? I need to conquer X2 , assuming it's open this time , and the RMC just looks awesome.

Robb hasnt announced anything yet but I would be shocked if they didn't with Twisted Colossus opening. Keep watching the thread and TPR on social media because last year they posted a "save the date" post way ahead of time as soon as they have the date scheduled.

Any Twisted Colossus updates?

 

Whenever there are updates to it someone will surely post about it within 4 or 6 hours on here, maximum.

 

You can also visit rocky mountain constructions social media accounts or watch that "our mountain" facebok page. Betwen TPR, RMC and that page there's no way you'll ever miss a major update about TC.

 

its not much but this one is from sunday. I dunno why no one else has posted any here lately.

Maybe because it was the holidays and people are busy with their families doing stuff?

any pictures are good pictures. I didn't see many workers this past fri-sun on twisted and drive past it 200 times without much change. Today Monday the 5th the park was a ERT dream with temps in the mid 70s and very low turnout of guests. Temps are the same all week. Here is leftover shot from Sunday Holiday in Park.

Does anyone else think it's a little weird that Apocalypse is now almost sun-bleached white? I mean, I know I've seen sun fade wood coasters before, but I don't think I've seen a woodie go from being natural wood color to almost WHITE! This just seems to strange to me.

i call her that sometimes just as a nickname just like for short colossus is "colossy". i am strongly connected with some of the MM coasters, just saying. i mean no disrespect to the members here. i was thinking about upgrading to a paid membership myself eventually. i sometimes question whether i would be considered an "enthusiast" or not. i mean i have no desire to learn everything there is to know about roller coaster engineering and operations, but i am very passionate about them emotionally and spiritually as my signature says, they are healing to me.

 

just a different point of view, thats all.

Robb, it kinda reminds me of the faded timbers I've seen exploring abandoned mines. (I've climed a few shady looking ones before, so I'll still ride Apocolypse).

 

It is weird though....

MY NEW YEARS DAY TR:

 

I was at the park on New Years Day with a few friends from San Luis Obispo. Two of them won tickets from a local radio station and one of them already had a season pass. I decided to get a season pass since I will be going back when Twisted Colossus opens. Also I may now do a trip now to Discovery Kingdom to ride that new Superman coaster they have. Anyways one of my friends who won tickets had never been to Magic Mountain before and was uneasy about certain roller coasters and the most intense roller coaster he had been on prior to this day was California Screamin' at DCA.

 

We started the day getting him on Revolution which he liked. We walked towards the back of the park past the fake snow area in the Roaring Rapids Camp (it was cold enough for them to use real snow - lol) expecting to get on Apocalypse. It was closed for the time being and they was someone actually on the track doing work. They said it may open later in the day. Tatsu was also closed when we had walked by it - they said they were waiting for it to warm up a bit more (it was 46° F). We kept walking and Marlena (the season pass holder) wanted to go on Riddlers Revenge. They were testing it and people were lined up waiting for it. I said we have to build up Adam (the first timer) for that one. We did a quick ride on Gold Rusher.

 

We started walking toward DC Universe. Lex Luther wasn't open yet so we went to Scream. Adam was nervous about getting on Scream. I walked up to the ride and decided to not to get on due to a recent head injury (don't worry I'm fine). No Scream, Viper, Tatsu, or X2 for me today. Adam was strapped in and bailed at the last moment (probably because I wasn't on). Adam's girlfriend Fina rode with Marlena while Adam and I waited. Marlena wanted to try and get Adam on Goliath, so we walked towards it. Lex Luther was now open so Marlena and I rode while Adam and Fina waited. Fina likes most thrill rides but was feeling under the weather today. We all got in line for Goliath. It was probably about a 20-30 min wait. Lex Luther was a 5-10 min wait and the others were walk ons. There were decent crowds today, but not too bad, and definitely a lot lighter than Summer. The cold weather kept some people away on New Years Day. Anyways we were able to get Adam on Goliath, mainly because it didn't go upside down, and the peer pressure from the three of us. He was screaming half the ride, but he enjoyed it and said he'd be willing to go on it again, just not right away. This was a big leap forward for my friend.

 

Next, we walked towards Full Throttle. It was about a 15 min wait and I didn't tell Adam (or the others who hadn't been on YOLO prior) about the back half of the ride. He was totally surprised about the backwards launch and lost his sunglasses (I didn't realize he was wearing them or else I would have told him to take them off). He loved the ride and liked the fact the loop was long and straight as opposed to short and abrupt.

 

Adam and Fina needed a break and wanted to walk around so we looked at some shops by the park entrance and then took Orient Express to go up the mountain while Marlena went to check on X2 (which had been closed on her prior visits). At the top we were going to go up the Sky Tower but it was closed (is that thing ever open?) so we got in line for Ninja while Marlena went on X2. The wait for Ninja was 30-40 min. Marlena was done with X2 before we got on Ninja (I think she waited less for X2 then we did for Ninja - lol). After Ninja we all went on Superman which was about a 45 min wait with one side running. The other one train rides of the day were Ninja and Batman. Adam almost got off of Superman at the last moment but we convinced him to stay on. As he was asking what to hold on to they launched the ride without an announcement. We were all laughing afterwards and he thanked us for making him stay on. I think it was his favorite ride of the day.

 

We were pretty hungry afterward and went to the Full Throttle Plaza to get wings and hot dogs while Marlena went to get Panda Express and met us at the plaza. It got dark while we were eating and the lights came on. Full Throttle Plaza and the front of the park looked great with all the lights.

 

After eating we separated for a bit and met up by DC Universe. We saw the light show (basically just changing light patterns) and Marlena and I got a night ride on Lex Luther which was only a few minutes wait. It was great seeing all the lights at the front of the park from high above. Afterward we decided to try and get Adam on Batman. It was about a 10 min wait. Again, Adam was a bit nervous but we were able to keep him on. He really liked the ride, probably not more than Superman or Full Throttle, but probably more than Goliath.

 

Next we walked towards Riddler's Revenge. Adam was a bit more confident and decided to try Riddler. It was a walk on to the station, probably the emptiest I've ever seen Riddler with two trains running. I wasn't going to originally do Riddler today due to my head injury six days prior, but I was feeling fine on everything else and I wanted Adam to get on so I got on too. Adam felt more comfortable sitting rather than standing so that's what he did (whatever gets him to ride). He liked the ride and said he'd be willing to try it standing up next time he rode it now that he knows what the ride was like. Since the station was empty, the crew let us ride again: Marlena and Fina did while Adam and I waited.

 

Time was ticking as it was 40 min to park closing (8PM). The back half of the park was deserted and it was pretty dark exiting Riddler (they need more lighting!). Marlena and I walked to Apocalypse to see it was open while Adam and Fina looked in a shop nearby. Apocalypse was open (and a walk on) so I called him and Marlena and I rode while we waited for Adam and Fina to arrive. We all rode together when they arrived at the station. Apocalypse was more wild then they expected but they enjoyed it.

 

After Apocalypse, Adam and Fina went to the front of the park to get a hot cocoa while Marlena went to get a last ride on Goliath and I went to ride Lex Luther again. I got on the side facing the back of the park (the less intense view) as my two previous rides were facing the other way and I got a ride by myself. The crew offered to let me stay on and a few more people joined in. After two Lex Luther rides, I went to Goliath with five minutes left. It was now 39° F. I got on the last train in the front row and I saw Marlena on the second to last train in the back row.

 

Afterward we walked to the front of the park and met up with Adam and Fina who got a Cookies N Cream funnel cake and shared it with me. All the lights were on, carolers were singing, and it even started fake snowing (it was almost cold enough for real snow). It was a great end to the day. We all had a great day at the park and Adam really overcame his fear and uncertainty of riding high thrill coasters. He enjoyed the park a lot more than he thought he would and said it was one of the best New Years Days he's had. I would have to say it was one of my favorite New Years Days also. I felt the Holiday in the Park event was a great event for Six Flags as it brought a lot of families into the park (probably the highest family to teen/20s ratio I've seen since here since the 90s), the lights at night looked great, and the park was open two extra hours than normal Winter hours (which made for three hours to ride coasters at night). I hope they carry on with this event in the future. Anyways on to the pictures.

That is fucking bizarre! It makes me want to drown myself in sunscreen just looking at that. And please, I had no idea what ride i was looking at when refereed to as "pocky". For the sake of every one else, call it by its name.

 

Just out of curiosity, colossus_queen, how

Why does this website do this to people's posts. I'd actually like to know what was meant to be said. I don't find it funny. I find it immature. I have a sense of humor for things that are actually funny. But fluffy fluffy bunnies and goo are the same things as potty humor. You grow out of that in junior high... Or you should have....

It's a phrase meaning a (generally small) plastic or metallic storage container usually associated with middle school or high school hallways. And you usually don't want to find goo in one while at a park.

 

I look at it as a challenge to be more descriptive when writing.

I've heard the same thing about going to parks and riding roller coasters. If having a sense of humor and enjoying going to parks and riding coasters makes me immature, I have no problem at all with being immature!

I'm sorry you find our forum so immature. You'll find your permanent ban more appealing, I'm sure. Hey, that rhymed! You just got slimed! No more posting to our forum for you!
