The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2205 - Opening Day Photo TR!

Recommended Posts

Haha is a world class dueling RMC not enough?

 

Park with some of the best variety of coasters on the planet in one place: Check

Park that continually pushes the limits on coasters & rides: Check

Park that makes the GP and Enthusiasts alike salivating for more: Check

Park with the (by far) largest thread on TPR: Check

 

I'd say Magic Mountain has earned it's reputation for wowing thrillseekers left and right, who knows what they'll do? People talk about this park, people want to visit this park from thousands of miles away. Even I like to visit every couple months just to take a cruise around and get on some rides to get away from every day life. So the sky is the limit and people can dream forever. Who knows whats up their sleeves and what's coming next?

 

Too bad they can't get a couple BIG things right. This could easily be a worldwide destination if they got operations and staffing up to snuff.

 

Six Flags California Resort and Hotel is what I hope they could become.

Ummm so where exactly are Riddler's trains? They've been using one train for the longest and it's from Great Adventure (has lime green stripes along the side).

 

Can we just talk about RR for a minute? And how it literally has THE WORST station queue layout possible?

 

Interesting observation with the train. I'm really curious to find out. I've never seen it run more than one train but I didn't notice it was from Great Adventure. How long has it been like this? I was there this past winter, but I skipped RR because of its impressively slow line.

Oh it's by far the worst queue!! Not to mention that annoying Equador techno song they've been playing since '98. Another annoyance are the overly long queues on older rides that aren't necessary any longer (Goliath, Riddler, Batman etc). Its like a mile trek and God forbid you get an op that won't let you re-ride.

 

The last time I saw Riddler running two trains was sometime last year Tho I didnt visit the park between Sept '14 and May of this year

that's terrible. lol

 

last year i bought a jacket from SFGAM thinking it was pretty unique. then i saw the same thing at magic mountain but with just the park name changed. doh!

 

six flags merchandise sucks. i think they might be missing out on some easy sales if they just had more cool stuff.

It's the worst. Fortunately though it has the world's worst standby queue, it has the world's best single rider queue. Virtual guaranteed walkon any day of the year. You could take a group of 10 into the SR queue on a busy day and get all of you off the ride faster than youd get up to the front in the regular line.

That train is actually Riddler's train that Great Adventure borrowed for a while when they opened Green Lantern.

I think them lending the train to SFGAdv might have messed up the train rehabs. It's clear that for the 3 train coasters, they tend to have 2 running with one in constant rehab/used for parts. I'm guessing when the 3rd was loaned, it screwed with the rehab schedule, hence typical one train operations. Hopefully they'll be able to have 2 trains running again soon, but my guess is they are busy (hopefully) trying to get Goliath reopened.

This is a Green Lantern train and the one currently operating on Riddler. Notice the lime green stripe across the bottom

It's called paint.

My bad, I wasn't aware they painted Riddler's train to match Green Lantern when they sent it to Gradv. It does make sense though since Green Lantern was "new" at the time. Hopefully they'll get Riddler back to two train operation soon.

Speaking about trains, is there any news on the green train for Twisted Colossus? Has it arrived yet?

 

Last I heard was "late June." And welp, it's June 28th and here we are.

 

Wouldn't be surprised if they just ditched the idea, we won't get a 4th train, and down the line they'll let it become something of the past that never happened.

 

Oh Magic Mountain, stop letting your reputation proceed you...

 

And BTW, I haven't ridden Riddlers in years, but I've heard it's been rather rough as of late. Could it be because of the train which has been passed back and forth like an unwanted stepchild? Riddlers was never the smoothest ride in the world anyway, the wheel compound was always pretty hard which made riders feel the vibrations of the track, and even riding it's rather loud. Probably has to do with those big heavy trains.

 

Would it be pushing it to get 2 new B&M sit down (not floorless) trains like Hulk/The Time Machine? I don't think it would take much from the ride.

Considering how well the Rougarou transformation went at CP, I'd be all for a sit-down Riddler's. It would be sad to see the standup gimmick disappear, but I feel like it was a one-and-done kind of thing anyway. A cool experience, but not something I'd want to do multiple times.

The Green TC train is currently in the cycle shop. It just simply hasn't been needed yet. The ride has been operating all 3 existing trains everyday since about a week after opening. Maintenance has started to get a rhythm and so have the ops on this ride. The fourth one will magically appear when one of the first three goes into rehab, so that three train operation will continue.
