Swung by the park for a few hours to see how things would be in the covid world, and I have to say that magic mountain did a pretty good job. For those wondering, it appears the only checks for r

SFMM Trip Report. Opening Day, April 1st, 2021.    TLDR: I had a very six flags day (but it was awesome)   After over four years, I finally returned to my home park and self-procla

On Saturday 11/21, Theme Park Review was invited to see the Six Flags Magic Mountain Holiday in the Park Drive-thru Experience. It’s rare for park patrons to get to drive through a theme park, so this

We went to SFMM on Tuesday. It was empty!! We arrived before park opening and proceed to gold pass entry. We sprinted to Full Throttle and got on the first public train. We then went to X, where we found out it was closed due to wind. So we rode Viper, the arrow 7 inversion coaster. We headed over to Revoulution, where I got to ride twice in a row. We got some lunch at the bbq restaurant and I got a bbq burger. I proceeded to Tatsu, my first b&m flyer. We got a little lost, but found our way to ninja. Which was only running one train(more on that later). I then went to ride Riddler, my first stand up coaster. We then went to apocalypse, which was also running one train. Next we went over to Lex Luthor(my first intamin drop) Omfg, great ride!! My flashpass was ready for green lantern( my first zacspin)! When that was over I ride Batman(my first batman clone). We went up to Samurai Summit again to find Superman still closed. We rode Full Thottle one last time before we headed out. All in all it was a great day at the park. One thing that upset me is that the moose didn't tell me X and Suoerman were closed. I knew Goliath, Scream, and Twisted Colossus were closed already.

 

Full Throttle: I always thought this ride was gonna be a gimmick, but it was great. Awesome acceleration, great hang time, sick backwards launch, and the top hat provided great airtime! 10/10

 

Viper: Was expecting pain, but it was great! Fast, forceful, smooth-ish. A lot of fun! 8/10

 

Revolution: I've wanted to ride it since I saw Vacation. Otsr are not needed, but are not as bad as people say. It was forceful and fun. Doesn't need the trims. I hope the refurb rumors are true. 7.5/10

 

X2: wasn't open

 

Tatsu: Amazing! My first flyer other than a Volare. Extremely forceful, especially the pretzel loop. Only running 1 station but 2 trains. 9/10

 

Ninja: fun ride, slow ops. One train. I know both were just refurbed, and I ask an op why it's only 1 train op, the op replies" I don't know, maybe it's broken." So because of bad operations I'll give it 5.5/10

 

Apocalypse: Fun, but rough. It was so rough it was hard to enjoy. Please retrack it six flags!! 6.5/10

 

Riddler: My first stand up. Loved it! People say stand ups are uncomfortable and rough, but I really enjoyed it. It was really similar to kumba, but standing. 8/10

 

Green Lantern: Fun ride, not anything mind blowing. Once again, not as uncomfortable as people say. 7.5/10

 

Batman: My first B:TR clone. Holy intense. Great pacing, great elements, great forces.My legs felt like jelly at the end. And it was smooth! 9.5/10

 

Lex Luthor: My first Intamin drop tower. Holy Sh/+. Amazing view. Only ride I actually freaked out on. Great drop and speed! 10/10

 

Jet Stream: it was fun. Pretty good length. It was really rough for a flume though. 6.5/10

 

Really Fun Day. I have a reason to go back for Scream, Goliath, TC, Superman, and X!

I wonder if there will be enough speed to get a little pop going up the double ups?

 

 

You've never riden an RMC have you? Lol. You're going to get a pop of air over every. Single. Hill. All of them. And most with force lol.

To answer your question about Ninja, it's train is in rehab early because with the accident with the tree, they had to run that train by itself while they frankenstein'd a second one so it needed its annual rehab sooner than it might have otherwise since it ended up running a lot more cycles.

I must admit, the finishing of the track is bittersweet. It was orgasmic seeing the track completed, but now I can't get my daily fix of track progression pics lol.

 

Oh well, can't wait until testing begins in several weeks

no i have, but i don't think they are all CRAZY airtime like most think. but again, looking at all the new picture, the double up part i doubt will have anything. the down should be pretty okay though.

now you can just try to pay close attention to all the extra support they add after. or, where they are in the repaint. currently, i think they are working on the double down area.

Considering the first drop is 125 ft and everything after that is dramatically shorter I'm pretty sure there will be lots of ejector and airtime.

there's going to be some super awesome moments, but there won't be 18 ejector air time moments like that other guy is acting like.

Sorry for the probably dumb question, sooo please no rage storm or OTT reaction, if this is indeed stupid just a simple question:

Is SFMM not on the WCB this year? I only see Knotts, and I know info is still coming soon but just was wondering if anyone had any idea, since Im figuring if I can/how much time to take off.

 

 

The twisted pics looks amazing!

Last year there was WCB Knotts and WCB SFMM and there werent very many perks for SFMM compared to KBF, so they may have dropped SFMM this year or they may just still be working on it.

With Twisted Colossus opening this year, I would be very surprised if the event didn't include SFMM. I'm guessing the details just haven't been worked out (Six Flags is supposedly harder to work with than Cedar Fair) and Robb didn't want to announce anything that isn't confirmed. I'm assuming SFMM will be Saturday, September 12th as it has been in past years, but we should hopefully know for sure soon. That said, I have heard there has been discussion in the past to shift the second day to either SeaWorld San Diego or Universal Studios Hollywood, but I wouldn't expect that to happen this year. I also doubt the event would return to only one day, especially since Robb and Elissa are flying across the country to host it.

 

As for Twisted Colossus, it's great to hear that the track is in place. They're actually done about a week ahead of what I was expecting, so at this point I would be a little surprised if it's not ready by Memorial Day. If the ride opens earlier, great, but I'm not getting my hopes up. At the moment, I just can't wait to see the coaster testing, which hopefully should begin in a couple weeks.

It's amazing that just plain ol' wood can support and hold up all that steel (+trains) and beams!

 

Whatever park gets RMC's first ground-up all steel coaster is going to be one lucky park!

 

Cannot wait to see them testing the track... and the accompanying video footage (on and off-ride)

The thought of an RMC hyper, or a launched steel coaster

Yeah, that was my fear...I know there were issues for the 2013 WCB and many here griped how it was quite inferior to Knotts. Was afraid maaaaaaybe SFMM would not be part of it.

Thankfully my fears seem to be unfounded:

 

 

Thanks GCI Wooden for the info!

I will find a way to squeeze this trip in during the small breaks between my semesters!

I'm hoping that TC isn't the last time SFMM works with RMC.

 

my feeling as well. also, if they could just bring back Ghostrider to it's original glory without those horrible trims. I know, wrong thread.

I hope not too! There are two things I'm thinking of that would be superb for any park...

 

(1) if Premier Rides could land a huge job, so they could design a ride that's fully flushed out! (FT is close, but it needs to be twice as long)

 

(2) a RMC ground-up all-steel coaster

 

(***) a giga coaster at SFMM
