The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

Recommended Posts

Based off of "Our Mountain's" videos that he updates us with, it *appears* that the block brakes section of track on the double-down is gone and that the "crow's nest" is gone as well.

 

He also posted a video yesterday showing Scream getting power washed.

 

 

What was the crows nest?

 

If i'm not mistaken, it was referring to the little box sitting on the MCBR for an employee to sit?

Without context, it's impossible to read too far into the record breaking guest service. Cool that they gave employees a shirt to commemorate it (I hope a party or something came with it too), but odd they would make it the uniform.

when they first added that old colossus train for photo ops, the back drop did not have the opening start thing on their. now it's there and says spring. so i guess there is hope still for the spring opening.

 

as far as winds. saw a pic today with employees blocking the entrance of drop of doom. so at least it was closed at some point today.

It's not a uniform. I heard that they can wear them for the next 7 weeks if they want.

Record-breaking guest service??? Their standards must be pretty low!

 

Actually, if you ask me, I have generally noticed much improved customer service. Sure, there's always an exception or two, but on the whole... I think it has gotten better.

Looking at the Guest Satisfaction Surveys, the parks as a whole have seen huge improvement over the last few years. Most Guests are very satisfied with parks' employees. While I am a little bit biased, SF St. Louis has statistically been in the top 3 parks for almost every category and top in some of the most important categories. However, SFSL never did anything like create shirts to brag. As the "Coaster Capital of Missouri", there's no reason to make up titles that aren't 100% clear in terms of what they mean.

Yeah, I guess so. I just thought it was hilarious that they have t-shirts, because most parks with excellent customer service (Disney parks, a couple of the Cedar Fair ones I've been to) are much more humble about having good customer service. Only Six Flags would make a t-shirt for it and "brag" about it when, while they're improving, there isn't much to brag about.

I think the main thing behind the shirts is a reward for the park's team members. It seems like a great morale booster, which will encourage them to hopefully keep getting better. While everyone may have a different experience at the park, SFMM does have very good scores.

Again, without the context of knowing what questions they ask and how they rate it, it's hard for us to know what "highest scores" means.

So, I am heading to Six Flags Magic Mountain most likely on either April 2nd or 4th, 2015. I definitely don't plan on Twisted Colossus being open at all, so what advice do you have for crowds during that time of year, what rides to hit first, and even food options? Thanks in advance.
