The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Kind of off topic, but it's bugging me, so I have to say something about it here lol.

I am still trying to understand why the Flash Pass system is different from one park to the next. SFGAdv allows unlimited rides on all their coasters, yet at SFMM you have to pay extra and they limit use. The day I used FP at SFGAdv Toro was on one train operation yet we could still book unlimited times and ride twice.

So I don't really think it should be different for X2. Or for a coaster like TC. I just think that it should be a streamlined and consistent experience for the price across the chain.

 

Yeah this has been on my nerves for awhile. I love flash pass. I use it every park we go to. But the last two years SFMM makes me feel like I'm getting ripped off. I don't mind he high price. It's just so limited now. (Single rides only on some coasters. Etc).

While I may be wrong, I was always under the impression that the determining factor for the extra FP cost was directly related to the fact it was both high demand and low ridership. I remember at least at the time, Goliath at SFGA didn't cost extra, but it was limited to a max of 2 rides, while the rest were unlimited (something we didn't realize until after we tried to get a third ride--so we felt a bit ripped off at that situation).

 

And I thought SR was primarily only offered on rides that both frequently had open seats, and could easily accommodate a separate queue. I sure other factors, such as ridership demand, also come into play.

Do you mean you can only book the rides once a day, or you can book it more than once, just not back to back?

Most people aren't going to multiple parks in the chain to notice any difference in how Flash Pass is administered. Different parks with different rides have different needs.

 

Look at what Disney is doing differently with digital FastPass on both coasts as a perfect example of that.

If I'm understanding correctly you can only book one ride per day on Twisted Colossus , Full Throttle and The New Revolution. You need to pay extra for X2 and you can ride multiple times on SUPERMAN: Escape from Krypton but you don't get to re-ride with Platinum.

 

Am I getting that right? Personally I think that's kind of lame, but if I were visiting the park I would still pony up the cash for Platinum. It's worth it for those single rides, as well as Jet Stream, Ninja, Lex, Batman and Tatsu. I obviously wouldn't pay extra for X2 because I wouldn't ride X2 because it's a piece of sh*t ride.

I believe Superman you can only ride once per day as well. And it could be only with platinum.

That is correct, you get one reservation on Superman & Revolution (Platinum only) and one on TC & Yolo (both Gold and Platinum). You can book a single ride on X2 for a $15 fee on Gold & Platinum. It's very frustrating to have these limits on the Flash Passes, especially when other SF parks don't do it. I can kind of understand the reasoning on Yolo and Superman, but there's no reason to limit FPs on high capacity rides like TC.

 

When I visited SFGrAm last summer, the only FP limits were no double rides on Goliath (I still got 10 rides in with Platinum), and only 2 reservations on Justice League. I would hope to see less FP restrictions at SFMM in the future, but I'm not holding my breath.

 

Also, the VR on Revolution needs to stop period. If they do continue it, it should only be during certain hours like SFGrAm was doing with Demon. It adds nothing to the ride and makes the line completely FUBAR.

I just think that for the price the limitations shouldn't exist with the price. It's very expensive. However, the price becomes worth it when the limitations are lifted. I just can't help but feel it's a rip off.

However, I would purchase the FP at SFGAdv every time I go. That was so worth the extra money to essentially have the run of the park.

I also think that if they are going to ask people to pay an additional $15 for X2... that should grant unlimited rides. I could understand not allowing double rides... but it should really allow for full access.

So this may be random, but we will be at The park Saturday. If anyone's there or also plans to be there shoot me a PM.

 

Check the weather before you go... It's supposed to rain all weekend.

I've been watching it like a hawk. Only 10% chance today and it won't even be until 6pm. We originally were going to go on Sunday but the weather for Sunday was supposed to be horrible. I'm hoping most people will think it's going to be bad and not go to the park today lol.

Just a heads up for anyone coming to the park today, the following rides are closed:

Tatsu

Full throttle

The new revolution

Superman

Riddlers revenge

Apocalypse

 

I feel like this park declines literally more every time I come here. Embarrassed to have brought my partner here for his first time with half the park closed

It's just that time of year when they do annual maintenance, also construction.

 

According to different blogs, here are the reasons for two of the ride closures:

 

Tatsu - lift hill chain replacement

Riddler's Revenge - Repaint with JL construction

People fault MM for everything, even when they're doing required maintenance

I had an awesome time yesterday for visiting the park for the first time. Got on everything at least once thanks to a platinum flash pass. I've got to say, and I've heard negatives about it in the past, but the employees have to be one of the best out of the six flags parks I've visited. Especially the Twisted Colossus crew who tried to get that train out there right on time on every lap. Pretty much the lack of a constant running shuttle and a couple of closed coasters were the only negative, but it gets me to want to go back again.

Tatsu, Apacolypse, Riddler, and Superman were pretty much the only closed coasters. Green Lantern was open and closed all day, but snagged a ride.

I really loved this view.

Loved the park, but only had to spend a few hours at it. Next time I need to stay longer.
