On another note... I don't want floorless on Riddler. Scream is already floorless. If they have a sitdown option I wouldn't mind that I guess, but Riddler right now is about thr only standup I actually enjoy. I didn't find it to bebinbearably rough at all when I rode it Thursday. Do wish it had 2 trains though.

I think it would be pretty lame to switch Riddler's to a floorless. It's been smooth for me. Besides, they already have Scream. If they moved Scream maybe, but they seem to be committed to keeping that ride with the new paint. And why would they want to get ride of the world-record holder for stand-ups?

Well, put Scream into the ride rotation program and problem solved.

 

/sarcasm

 

The floater airtime on standups is really neat. In the inversions, the airtime feels much looser because your legs are free and only the top of the OTSR can prevent you from rising.

 

Its funny how B&M's most consistent "non-cookie cutter rides" are the standups/wings. Every single design* was IMO pretty cool in terms of layout and flow and unique, maybe save for Iron Wolf. The floorless generation that followed were all pretty similar.

 

*I understand that Chang and Mantis are ALMOST clones.

It might be just me, but I get motion sickness on floorless coasters. 3 times in a row is enough for me. And Riddler's has a totally awesome layout. I think floorless would take away from the coaster instead of improving it, which I believe is the reason why people might want to switch it.

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.

 

during the commercial shoot, someone had said that one of the RMC guys there that day said it was already there. never saw it, so didn't know if it was true or not.

After all of the comments about MM not having enough flat rides. Watch us get a super loop next year

Although I'm not against the idea, the past super loops at Six Flags have been marketed as coasters. If Magic Mountain did get a super loop, it would be (by Six Flags logic) their 20th coaster.

A friend of mine from Scotland just shared this video. They should install this at the mountain. (More flat rides

 

YouTube search ABC Rides Turbillion

Holy Cow! That thing is insane. A few questions: how long do you think the ride cycle is and how much would it cost.

I thought Six Flags was clear saying Super Loops are roller coaster. Stupid

 

A flat for us, coaster for SFMM

That flat looks insane, and would probably actually make me sick.

 

What if Riddler and Scream swapped trains? Probably not feasible but just a thought.

That would be interesting if not cripplingly expensive and unfeasible. Would be fun to try in NL2/TPS though.

As fun as it looks that flat looks like it'd be a maintenance nightmare, so many working/moving parts. Be interesting to see if any U.S. parks install them, I doubt any Six Flags parks would want them

 

 

This. I was going to say, the ride is basically like taking an S&S Sky Swat, a Zamperla Rotoshake, and any other high-stress mechanical nightmare ride and putting it all together.

Thanks for the video! That does look pretty intense. While I don't think the park needs a lot more flat rides, I think it does need a bit more diversity in the whole package. Attractions like Justice League for example. The entertainment side of the park is not amazing, but i give them credit for trying on the budget. Can't recall the last time I saw something amazing in the theater next to Riddler's for example.

Lemme check. Okay, this is still the SFMM thread...

Going to SFMM for the first time, what would you guys compare the roughness of x2 to? Also I know Goliath is closed but if it was open would it be a coaster you have to ride?

The roughness can wildly vary based on your seat and weight distribution. Inside seats tend to be smoother. Row 1 inside seat is my personal favorite. Goliath is a must-ride when open.
