The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Ride just came back online. And yes, I'd imagine letting go of a phone on this ride could cause some serious damage if it were to hit someone in the face.

 

The park really needs to increase the length of the Steampunk soundtrack. I've heard each song what feels like 50 times already. Ha

I just realized that during TC's opening ceremony, Bonnie said the iron horse was a "Six Flags exclusive right now". Which was suspected before but now it's confirmed.

 

Make me wonder how long they have exclusive rights and which parks are salivating at the chance to get RMC iron horsing for their woodies.

Waited 3 hours and 20 minutes for my second ride (including an hourlong breakdown), but it was worth it.

 

My train dueled in perfect synchrony on both laps! The ride is great without dueling, but the dueling really adds to the experience and takes the ride to another level, IMO. The ride became much more disorienting when you're watching another train fly around you.

 

I was scolded by an employee for leaving my assigned row and waiting for the front instead, but she let me stay. Loved the view from the front but probably preferred the additional airtime in the back.

I always thought that was just a rumor and six flags was just keeping rmc really busy and they just didn't have time to work with anyone else.

 

Correct. Six Flags is the only company with I-Box rides, but not the only one that can buy one.

It's a Six Flags exclusive according to Magic Mountain president Bonnie Rabjohn, the video of her stating this is on youtube if you wanna check it out.

 

It's not, according to RMC.

 

Six Flags is awesome to work with and they have kept us busy. They gave us our first break with the New Texas Giant and they continue to believe in RMC and our coasters. We will continue to work with them and other Non-Six Flags parks. They do not have an exclusive.

This quote can be interpreted different ways though. "They don't have an exclusive" can mean they don't have a monopoly on the company as a whole, which is why we've seen Outlaw Run and plans for Wildfire. Nothing suggests that Six Flags doesn't have an exclusive on the ibox track.

 

On the flipside Bonnie's comment can be interpreted different ways as well, "it's a Six Flags exclusive" could just mean that they're the only chain with the technology so far. OR it could mean they do have some type of contract with RMC. Parks do this all the time, wasn't there some contract with Busch and B&M preventing other chains from installing dive coasters in the U.S. for a time? It's business

That screenshot you posted is from Monday. I was only there Tuesday. You were there both days, right?

 

yeah, i was there both days, wearing the same thing. rushed home washed my clothes and wore them again. lol

 

when you watch stuff, just remember blue train monday, purple tuesday.

 

John, I think I sat by you for a few rides on Tuesday. I remember you posting about the shirt and having to wash it to wear again the next day. I was in the red polo shirt passing out the sunscreen. It looks the POV video mixes the shots from a bunch of different runs on Mon-Wed. I was able to spot myself a few times but I was sitting next to different people (I was almost always in the orange train). Most of the shots I'm in are in the first 30 seconds and then from the 4:10 mark to the end. It was so fun to be able to ride over and over, it's too bad they almost ruined the shoot by using the models who clearly didn't want to be there. I wonder if any of our footage will make it into the official TC commercial?

 

yeah, that's me. i saw you on some media day videos, and some others from mon/tue. i was getting jealous. some i knew where there all three days. LOL

yeah, on the facebook RMC Q&A, that question was asked multiple times, I think myself included, and they kept saying no exclusive. in bonnie's speech didn't she say something like, "right now"? so yeah, i just think they have RMC locked up and while it's not any contract, they just know no one else is getting a ride other than six flags with the iron horse track for another year or so. so, they call it exclusive.

Wow, it's been down for an hour? I hope it's not a gum problem again.

 

It sounds weird, but it kind of irritates me to see so many on-ride selfies and customer POVs out there. People just do not follow rules and then when something happens or someone gets hurt, the park has to take all the blame for it. As many coasters as I have ridden, I have never once taken my cell phone out of my pocket to take pictures/videos during a ride. It's just as bad texting/facebooking/instagraming while driving. End of rant

 

My favorite is watching people text while bicycling and skateboarding. Good candidate for a Darwin Award.

Wow! This looks like it's turning out to be the greatest hit the park has had since X2 opened up as X. I'm hoping to make it there this Tuesday or Wednesday, hopefully it won't be as crowded then. Can't wait to ride!

TC on CBS national news....

That's a pretty cool segment they did. I like the song they chose for the TC footage.

Apparently someone passed out on the ride, no injuries reported

 

I could see this happening. Rides intense, even for a veteran like me. Hope opening day was a gas!

 

Love the ride, but kinda surprised at someone passing out. I could see because of excitement and how great the ride is or shocked at what the coaster just did but not because it is so intense. I rode it 5 times in a row Sunday with the line being 15-25 minutes long. I didn't once think after riding that I am getting nauseous or dizzy I better stop. To me most of the other coasters are more intense and make me nauseous after a few times and I never get sick. This coaster is a different type of fun. By the way I sat in rows 5 twice, 6 twice and row 9. Going to go get some more rides in early Tuesday morning. I want to see how it is in the very back and front. The very first time I had my seatbelt too tight and the bar tight that when I loosened the belt and bar the times after it was so much better feeling every air moment as i was flying all round the seat. Make sure you leave some room for your belt and bar people!

5 times in a row with 15-25 minute break you mean? there were some that tapped out during filming after 4-5 in a row. 4-5 without getting off ever. that's in a row to me.

 

also, as far as dueling, some of the videos i've watched show the blue side seemingly just hauling ass up the lift hill to meet the green side. it never was that fast during filming. usually we just about met the back of the green side when getting on the lift. in the videos, i see the green side halfway up the lift already. at least an entire train length. i assume that's why it's able to duel so often. i'm hoping for my first dual, duel.

Yeah I wonder the facts about the person. Can't judge without knowing more. I have yet to ride this back to back with no recovery time yet so it could make me dizzy but I mean even just going on some rides once I get a little dizzy. Haven't yet. 3 out of 5 rides dueled almost perfect for me. One of them I was halfway up the lift on the green side when the blue came up flying and met even just at the very top. One of the times we didn't duel it didn't on either side. The other time the blue train made it to the bottom of the lift as the green was in the middle but it didn't go very fast to catch up, I think because the green just passed the certain sensor and then the green sped up a little to go on without it. Dueling makes it way better. I wonder if this ride will ever be a walk-on(during the week). Of course no time soon but maybe in the off-season on a weekday and rainy day. But looking forward to this ride taking people from X and Tatsu and making them shorter. Tatsu always seems to be around the 45 minute mark whenever I go. If it can get to 20-30 minutes i'd love that. Looks like you can go left now when the park opens and get some rides on X alot easier now.
