Also, why doesn't Colossus, Superman, YOLOcoaster, or X2 have flash pass listed on the map? Are those the extra rides that have an up charge?

 

X2 requires an upcharge and is only available on Gold or Platinum. YOLOcoaster and Superman do not require an upcharge, but you must get Platinum in order to use Flash Pass on them and you may only use it once per ride. My guess is that Twisted Colossus will have the same restrictions as YOLOcoaster and Superman for the first year or so (that's what Goliath used at SFGAm), then it will become unrestricted once lines shrink to a manageable level. It's possible the park could have no Flash Pass at all for the first couple months (I believe they did this on YOLOcoaster), but as capacity should be reasonable for Twisted Colossus and that ride would be the main reason to purchase Platinum over Gold I'd be a little surprised if they did that. It's also possible they could charge extra for Twisted Colossus, but I'm guessing they'd end up making more money by not upcharging the ride.

Has this been confirmed at the park? I'm still holding out hope that it's a poor wording on their website because Superman was the one ride that made SFMM's Flash Pass actually worth buying to me. I'm down with the no riding twice in a row thing, but once per visit? For a ride that's nearing 20 years old?? That's insane.
Yes, in this thread, a few pages back. Here's a clear breakdown of the rides that are not "normal" flash pass use:

 

X2: Unchanged, still an upcharge, requires Gold or Platinum.

YOLOCoaster: No longer an upcharge, but requires Platinum.

Superman: No longer a normal Flash Pass, now requires Platinum, but no upcharge.

Twisted Colossus: If they follow the same pattern as they did when adding YOLO, and Lex Luthor, it will be a $15 upcharge reservation with Platinum required.

 

What I'm not sure of and haven't seen confirmed is how exactly theyre doing the "one per day" restriction that I've heard there is with YOLO and Superman. Ideally they just program your QBot device to allow one use, but they might be using boarding passes, reservations, or just marking off your wristband in some way.

when i went to SFGAM, yeah they programmed into the qbot 2 rides on Goliath. Luckily, it was changed to two before I went from the one ride.

 

also, not sure if it can be done at Magic Mountain but what the girl did for me at SFGAM was, i bought the two for one gold with the gold season pass, then upgraded to platinum. saved me one regular priced gold pass. it's the only time i've ever bought a flash pass, so excuse me it that was just a normal trick.

And the Platinum is $110!! For that much money, I'd be better off spending the day at Disneyland.

 

I'm really do hope that what they're trying to say is that both rides are actually available now on all flash pass levels, just with the restriction that you can't ride twice on Platinum. (One can hope, right?)

 

But then again, Six Flags is known for doing silly, unreasonable things all the time, so it's probably the worst-case scenario.

 

The wording is exactly the same as that found on Six Flags Great America's website for Goliath, and I know from experience that Platinum was required and it was one ride with Flash Pass, period. I have to assume the same policy will exist at SFMM for YOLOcoaster and Superman. I understand the reasoning behind it, as YOLOcoaster has been there long enough that few people would probably still buy an upcharge for it yet the ride has capacity issues, and Superman is probably the park's lowest capacity coaster and still routinely posts hour-plus waits despite it's age. Personally I'm more surprised that they still have the X2 upcharge, but I guess since many GP visitors regard that as the most insane ride ever there are still plenty of people wiling to buy it.

 

I visited SFGAM in July, got a Platinum pass and got 2 rides on Goliath, which surprised me because I thought going in it was just going to be one.

This list makes zero sense...

The park maps have never made sense. Tatsu is now drawn as going UNDER the lift hill for craps sake. Who do they hire to draw these things up??

 

I feel like they could hold a "Whatever guest draws the best park map wins a season pass" competition with park fans voting and the maps would be 1,000,000 times better than any map the park has ever released. And it'd cost the company NOTHING!

 

These guys at SF have no clue what they're doing---PERIOD.

 

Are we seriously talking about this now? I take it all back, lets go back to arguing over the parking lot theme of Scream.... For %#@$! sake. Draw a bunch of dicks on the map with the ride names, just as long as it tells me how to get there and where the entrances/fast pass entrances are. I'll figure out the rest.

 

 

...and the people that are complaining obviously do not even need a map to get around. As far as Park Maps go this one is pretty darn accurate.

This is really disappointing, IMHO. I'll be out in LA for work in a couple weeks (3/28-29), and I was thinking of hitting up SFMM, but I don't really want to shell out $110 for a flash pass that's only going to get me on Superman once (my favorite ride at SFMM to ride over and over). And I don't terribly relish the thought of saving the money and waiting in lines all afternoon for re-rides.

 

The thought had crossed my mind to hit up Disneyland instead, but I am unsure about that, especially given the current ride closures and expected crowd levels.

If I'm not mistaken, the end of March is the start of Spring Break season. You'll not only be fighting locals on the weekend, but vacationing families, too.

Yea the Green side looks insane, the side view looks semi normal.

 

How has no one talked about the head choppers on the Blue side?!

 

Just noticed that. And it looks like it's gonna follow through the entire drop, which is awesome.

 

That's gonna be some surprise ejector air coming down that double down. This is shaping up to be insane!

I think the angle distorts it more than it actually is. No, it's not a traditional double down by any means, but if you look closely you can see the transition (being generally flat) is a little longer than it seems from the picture. It covers about two or three steel beams, it's not quite as immediate as it looks. I still want to see other angles, though. This looks really good.
