The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

With that said, I really am not a big fan of the mandatory loocker thing, but it makes sense for some rides I guess. But I always felt that if you only had the refillable drink bottle, they should accommodate that. Superman Ultimate Flight does that at SFDK. It just burns me to have to pay a dollar (I know....wah wah) just to stash the bottle.

 

How does Superman Ultimate Flight accommodate the bottle thing? Curious. I'd agree there, they shouldn't charge people extra to store their bottles. I would go so far and say their bags as well That $1 mandatory locker thing on X2 is a bit too price-gougey to me But it is something they need to do to get the line moving faster and dispatch quickly.

^History is reality in the case of SFMM.

 

Regarding the parking stripes we still can't seem to get over...Does anyone know if they painted over the parking stripes that have been under Colossus since it opened in the 70's?

 

I think I would laugh hysterically if they just repainted the parking stripes, as if they were still real parking spaces, under Scream and left it like that.

The ride looks incredible. Wow.

 

I'm still curious to see how the Blue / Green transition is received once the ride opens, but otherwise, the speed looks relentless throughout.

 

The outward airtime hill leading to the second lift looks like it will be a lot of fun, and it even looks like there could be a pop of airtime on the Green side in that "extra" hill leading into the final brake run.

I think people exaggerate when it comes to the whole trim thing at MM. Tatsu, Apocalypse, Batman, X2, Yolo, Ninja, Gold Rusher, Superman all run brake free as far as I know.

 

The thing is none of these coasters are high on airtime, which TC is promised to have. The GP aren't too big on airtime, and if there is a big enough response against "that feeling in my stomach" then I could see SFMM putting in trims. It may be an extreme reaction, but one I'm not going to discredit quite yet.

That video is great. I think it would be cool if the park put in a light system that has like 10 different colors projected around the coaster. That would be the coolest looking ride at night in my opinion.

 

I've seen the lift hill lights at night a few weeks ago, and they're boring white. I do wish they'd add some extreme color to this baby!

Man, that sucker really flies! Should be a real winner for both the park and the guests. But the funny thing is, after watching that video, I now have a really strange and bizarre feeling. The feeling... of actually wanting to go to Magic Mountain!

Also, I'm really glad the park is continuing to clean up some of the mangier areas, the new area looks great!

Every time I look at that green double down I can't stop looking at it, it just looks so wrong yet so right.

 

The way the back of the train just gets yanked down the second part looks awesome. Also the airtime hill in the Top Gun Stall on the blue side and the zero-g roll look insane. Twisted Colossus may very well be one of the best coasters out there!

Indeed! It flies through the roll and this is just testing!

^Double downs are great elements--more coasters should have them.

 

Agreed. The double down on Jack Rabbit at Kennywood is still one of my favorite elements on a coaster.

The old Colossus light show lamps are still there from the looks of it. Perhaps they will be put back into service as a finishing touch once all the work is done? That would be a nice tie-in of old and new Colossus.

Stole the words right out of my mouth. Jack Rabbit was awesome, still is, especially when they had those tiny leather straps that didn't tighten as seat belts. When I was young I really thought I would fly out!
