Swung by the park for a few hours to see how things would be in the covid world, and I have to say that magic mountain did a pretty good job. For those wondering, it appears the only checks for r

Magic mountain has said "viper isnt going anywhere"....theres never gonna be a giga, they will never expand the park , just keep getting half rollercoaters, carnival rides and flats for a while

 

I've heard this too... But exactly who is "Magic Mountain"? Because if "Magic Mountain" isn't someone from corporate ho helps make these decisions, I'd take that info with a grain of salt.

Many of you may have wondered, "Where's Superman?!", while visiting DC Universe. Yes, there's a ride dedicated to Superman, but before today you could not get a photo taken with "The Man of Steel" himself! Six Flags Magic Mountain finally has Superman in DC Universe and he arrived today with a lot of fanfare!

^ I love how the "muscles" don't quite fit with the arms, LOL!

But he does look like a sweetie. Hopefully, his real body

is "nothing to hide," etc.

(And that's my hope and nothing more.)

^ Thanks! But for myself, I am hoping they keep with what

Jason Momoa will bring to my woofy character, Aquaman.

 

As an in-park character I mean.

 

Woof.

Yeah. This is my <3. And note he went from the standard blonde to black/dark brown. (Pardon for the sidebar.)

Do you have to be a member of Club TPR to attend WCB? I live near SFMM and want to hang out with y'all when you come out here.

No you do not! In the past Club TPR has gotten you either discounted or early access tickets, but anyone who's a member of the site in good standing can attend. The only event that requires Club TPR is Coaster Mania, as that event (not run by TPR) requires you be a member of a recognized coaster club, of which Club TPR is (the best) one.

Can you rent a car?? That honestly probably be your best bet.

 

Probably not as it would only be my brother and I. We both have drivers licences but we are from Australia so I do not know how we'd go driving.

 

Mate, you'll be cool with a car. Trust me, done it on my last 3 visits, so much easier. Whilst doing everything opposite to what you're used too sounds a bit daunting, it doesn't take too long at all to get used too. Took me all of 500m and once you're in traffic, it's no different.

 

Just don't hire a car by walking up to a rental place and doing over the counter. You will be rorted, especially in insurance fees. Shoot me a PM if you want any tips on hiring a car, it certainly is a good way to move about LA.

 

I'm trying to organise my next trip in March 2018. We'll definately be doing MM again, only managed one ride on TC last year and ended up leaving early cos we were feeling a bit crook (flu).

Ugh. I know it's not done, but up to this point it looks TERRIBLE.

 

Where, I ask you WHERE has yellow EVER been associated with the Riddler? Google the Riddler and there is not 1 image of it.

Yellow and green is not a bad color scheme. There are fantastic coasters, such as Cheetah Hunt, that have this color scheme. However, THAT is the problem. I can't picture anything but an African / tropical themed ride when I see rides painted in these colors. The last thing that this resembles is a Gotham City super villain. There are even building facades in the Riddler's footprint and my mind is still falsely associating the colors to something tropical.

IMO the only reasoning behind the new different colored paint job is a "Different Coaster" vibe to the people that don't know a thing about the rides and visit every couple years, and won't recognize it. Conveniently done in a "new" area that they'll be presenting with the new indoor ride.

 

A fresh black support and green track paint job would have looked phenomenal.

 

I would be enamoured to know who in the Six Flags industry makes these kinds of decisions.

Turns out I'm not going to MM this year, Going to Orlando instead but looking at going in Feb, What are the crowds like mid feb? My only problem is that i'm still young early 20's so the car rental adds up very expensive.

Yes, I much prefer the old color scheme. IMO, they should have gone with green track and purple supports (similar to the new Joker coasters); it would have looked better than green and yellow, and fit in with the Riddler theming.

I predict that when RR reopens it will have new sit down trains ala Hulk. SFMM can't do a floorless conversion because they already have a floorless coaster but no one wants to ride standups anymore.

It's possible, but I doubt it. The park advertises it as the longest, fastest, and highest stand-up coaster in the world. Converting Riddler to a sit-down coaster would strip the park of its bragging rights.

 

I don't mind it being a stand-up coaster, but if the park would replace the OTSRs with new ones that allow another 3-4" of room for my head, that ride would be MUCH better in my book.

At a few million bucks a piece, I predict Six Flags will not be doing this.

 

but no one wants to ride standups anymore.

I disagree, Riddler still gets decent ridership and can get a sizable line on busy days. When I was at SFOG, Scorcher had the 2nd longest wait of the day (DDD being the longest). Green Lantern had a line when I was at Gradv in 2014, while Nitro and El Toro were walk-ons. I know part of the reason is the slow ops, but they arent unpopular by any stretch. The first gen B&M stand ups and Togos however are/were crap, and I can see why Cedar Fair is converting them or scrapping them completely.
