Recommended Posts

Update: Tatsu's line is only to the end of the first switchback as of 3:27. Both stations open.

 

X2 is super short too. Line shrink trick worked today.

 

I'm here now too. Just showed up and immediately faced a small for FT. Say hi if you run into me.

Here's my trip report from Wednesday, July 6.

 

Park was not that crowded. The parking lot was filled to somwhere next to Scream.

Everybody had a great time. Our first time visitor rode all the coasters in the park plus Superman and Drop of Doom. This will be the third year in a row of a good time at Magic Mountain. Looking forward to next year. Justice League dark ride please...

 

All coasters were operating 2 trains. Colossus had 3 trains. Yay!

Here's the day with more details:

11:12 am walked into the park. I was surprised there wasn't more cars packed at the parking lot entrance.

Went direct to Tatsu, but it wasn't open yet. So up the mountain to Superman.

11:20 am entered Superman line. 4 or 5 car wait. Still quite fun. I like the backwards version better than the original.

11:35 am entered Ninja line. Though I enjoy old arrow suspended coasters, this was the first time after riding that I wouldn't mind this being replaced with something else. Maybe Mack could do a version of Helix here, but then Yolocoaster and Superman already have launches...

11:50 am entered Tatsu line. It had some technical issues while we were in line, but we decided to wait since the line would only get longer later on. Fun ride. The motion seems "slow" to me, but it's still fun and the pretzel loop is a great moment. Both stations were being used so we didn'thave to hang in the brake run for 5 min like last year. Definite improvement.

12:41 pm at Revolution single rider line. I'm so glad it has the new trains. This is much more like the Revolution I enjoyed as a kid. Didn't do the VR at all. I like looking at the trees and such.

1:11 pm entered Goliath line. First half exactly as I remember. Then the stop at the mid course brake. I must be getting old, since I grayed out a bit in the helix of gray out.

1:58 pm entered Drop of Awesomeness line. Still the best drop ride like this that I have been on. Going up scares me. Going down is just fun.

2:21 pm entered X2 line. It had technical issues so we went to eat lunch at a nearby In N Out.

Lunch break.

4:05 pm entered Yolocoaster (Full Throttle) line. Everybody really enjoyed this.

4:40 pm back in X2 line. It had technical issues again, but we waited. The line was shorter than when we left before lunch. So the X2 line shortening in the afternoon happened today. This was bumpier than last year, and it bumped me in the head really well at the bottom of the last loop, even though I knew that jolt was coming. Oh well, still a crazy ride, but I think I'm tolerating bumpiness less well than before.

5:26 pm entered Viper line. I really should have sat this out and waited for my family and friends to ride this. After a bumpy X2 ride, this beat me up more. I'm totally ready for this ride to be bulldozed and replaced with something else.

5:43 pm entered Apocalypse line. I was surpised this was about a 25 min wait at this time of the day. It also had technical issues for a bit, but we just waited through them. Yes the ride is bumpy, but I still enjoy it. If you ever rode Psyclone when it was in this spot, Apocalypse is nowhere close to the house of pain that was

6:28 pm entered Gold Rusher line. It is what it is. I don't want it replaced though.

6:37 pm at Riddler single rider line. Yeah, this has gotten rougher over the years. Not Viper rough, but still too bumpy for a B&M.

7:06 pm at Green Lantern. I skipped this because one ride on this two years ago was enough for me.

7:26 pm entered Batman line. Just one moment of headbang in first flat spin. Other than that, normal Batman experience.

7:39 pm entered Scream line. Rode twice without moving seats. Sat out third ride and waited for my family and friends. I think I'm getting old. Fun ride though.

8:02 pm entered Twisted Colossus line. It had technical issues but we waited. We experienced a race for the second half. Wow does that add an extra dimension of fun to an already fantastic ride!

8:44 pm at Yolo for last ride. This is neat with the lights in the tunnel at night.

I'm not sure what happened at opening at the park yesterday - Saturday. The park was scheduled to open at 10am. Security and the metal detectors didn't start working until 9:30. The the poor guy screening the gold passes scanner wasn't working, so he had to key in the numbers. By the time I got into the park the gold pass line was already released. I've not seen this delayed metal detector issue before at the park. It seems it's always something...

What rides for e.r.t tonight?

 

Batman, Green Lantern, and Goliath

Does SFMM always have ERT on rides or at least often. I have never know a park have ERT so casually.

Sign up for the newsletter, they notify you of most ERT sessions. There's almost always one on July 11th sponsored by the 7-11 convenience store chain.

Question about the New Revolution, do you have to wear the VR headset or can you opt out?

You can opt out and even skip the line by going to the fast pass entrance. If you're riding with people who want to wear the helmet, you'll have to wait in line though. The only other VR coaster I've ridden allowed you to opt out, but did not have a "skip the line" option when I rode it.

Quick question for the SFMM pros. I'm used to going to DL where I can shove backpacks, fanny packs and purses on just about any ride. I'm pretty sure I know the backpack rule...what about purses and fannypacks? Can you get on rides with them on or stick them in a cubby or locker?

 

Are there lockers you can reserve for the day? If so, where are they located?

TNR is a disaster. They can't clean and charge the headsets fast enough to fill and dispatch the trains, even with 5-7 minute dispatches. Around half the trains are only sent half full (or with single riders filling the other half). The employees are working really really hard and it's not their fault that everything goes so slowly. They need about three times as many headsets as they have with how many are malfunctioning and how many die every few cycles. About 20% of the riders on each train get to reride because the VR didn't work for them. Plus, I enjoyed my ride in the front row without VR a lot more than any of my rides with VR.

The general rule is if it doesn't fit in your pockets, it can't ride with you. So no purses or fanny packs. Many rides have lockers at the entrance, or you can put your stuff on the station platform on all rides (except X2, where they force you to pay $1 for a locker). There's a deal where for like $10 you can move your stuff from locker to locker at each of the rides an

Unlimited number of times all day as well. If you want an all-day locker, there are some near the entrance behind Guest Relations next to the Flash Pass Center.

Yeah, the VR on revolution is a waste of life

Joker may have been an amazing ride, but the most amazing ride experience of the year would definitely have to go to the VR on The New Revolution. It really was amazing and added so much more to the ride than I thought it would after hearing the initial announcement. Hopefully by this time a few years from now every coaster in every park will have a VR option available to those who enjoy it
