The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2205 - Opening Day Photo TR!

Recommended Posts

I was at the park yesterday (the 31st) and Ninja was running two trains as well. And I'd love to see a FT rollback (or even better, be on one). The train crawls on the underside of the loop, you think it'd happen more often.

The backward launch has a rollback every time.

 

I actually saw a rollback on my first trip to Magic Mountian in 2014.

My dad said some super fat guy was probably sitting in the backseat

There was no mention of wheel carriages, wheel housings, or bogies. The quote was "we re-did the road wheels," which usually translates to New Wheels.

Crowds should be empty on the 12th Tuesday I hope right. No events and spring break is over? Should be walk ons? I know there is a baff day but it's several days so I don't think this one day should be affected.

Does anyone think tomorrow (4/7/16) will still be crowded? I plan to be there from open to close, so that should still give enough time to ride the important things!

 

I would expect crowds to be mild. Some are on Spring Break, but most are back at school. You should have plenty of time to ride most major rides.

 

Oh, and be warned. I saw on Instagram that Twisted Colossus was closed in the morning with some trains off the tracks. It may have opened up with two train operation later in the day according to the poster. There is a chance that all three could be operational by tomorrow, but don't be surprised if only two are running.

Anyone know how the crowds were today?

Super light. Was a really nice time today. Most rides were walk-ons, while Superman and Tatsu garnered lines which were still manageable. Waited only about 20min for Superman at the peak of the day. Tatsu was a walk-on at around 4pm. TC was a 5 min wait most they day. X2 was still only running one train so that line was lengthy until around closing time. Parking lot only filled to around the top gun stall on TC.

Very relaxed crowd and just an overall relaxing day. Got on about 10 coasters with plenty of rerides in the span of 4hrs. This is my favorite time of year to go.

I am going today Tuesday. Oh thanks for letting me know about X2 i'll go on that first then. I was planning on going on Superman and Tatsu on top of the hill first.

So something awesome happened yesterday.

 

Realizing that I would not visit SFMM in April or May and being the cheapskate that I am, I decided to cancel my Six Flags membership for two months, because why pay for a month that you won't visit. Also, for a reason that would take way to long to explain, I have 4 Six Flags memberships.

 

However, right after I cancelled them Six Flags sent an email saying "Hold up, instead of paying $28 a month for these 4 passes we'll let you pay only $18 a month". I still said no, but then Six Flags sent another email, this time offering $16 a month. I had to take up this offer.

 

Also, for some reason, even though my previous memberships were regular and had no parking, these new memberships that coast $4 a month each are Gold memberships and have free parking.

 

I am both ecstatic and really confused about why SF would give us such a great deal.

 

Has anyone else on here had experience with this or know why Six Flags is charging $48 a year for free parking and a gold pass?

^ And I'm curious why you didn't keep saying NO.....!

 

If you lost it, there, fine. Now you know, how low they were

willing to go. But maybe, just maybe they might have agreed

to go...even lower than what you bought them at? Still?

 

 

All the same, a great deal!

that's a great deal, i pay like $5.50 now for my gold membership. i bet it had something to do with having 4? i don't know. i know you can do that with sirius satellite radio. they keep coming with the offers at a fraction of the price they normally charge if you cancel.

The second time they said "this is our last offer"
