Does anybody know what’s going on with Green Lantern? It has been closed for a little while now and I can’t help but wonder if they are making any changes to it that would affect the ride experience.

 

Personally with all of these nearby wildfires I just assumed it was closed because they poured gasoline all over the ride area and excitedly put their insurance company on speed dial.

 

Coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain in 2019:

I thought someone said a while back that GL is closed because it's too expensive to run this time of year. It needs additional workers and few people ride it so they just shut it down.

 

Although I wouldn't mind if they burned it to the ground and replaced it with an open sewer.

I'm one of the few that actually likes Green Lantern quite a bit. Some rides are downright painful, but I've always preferred rides that throw me around a lot (hence why I worship Skyrush), even if it means enduring a little pain. Green Lantern is one of the few coasters that I actually get scared on because I have no idea what kind of ride I'll get.

 

I wouldn't care THAT much if Six Flags ends up removing it at some point, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed it's closed so often.

Yes, it's closed right now due to cost-saving. The park has been in full cost saving mode for the last few months due to not hitting attendance projections.

 

However there is also something mechanically wrong with it, but that's not been confirmed.

Hey everybody, does anyone know what's going on with Flash pass pre-sales after Holiday in the park? I'm going to be in LA on a 12 hour layover on January 1st and want to check out as much of the park as I can before it closes at 6, so I figured I would look at a buying a pass, but it looks like the only day in January they are selling passes for is the 27th for some reason? I don't think they're sold out as passes are still available throughout December. Do they just not pre-sell them on some days? Thanks!

Speaking of cost-cutting... What's up with the Crazanity construction? It looks like it's stalled the last week or two.

I'm still convinced that HangTime will open before CraZanity.

It really is never a good idea to buy one in advance. As far as I know, they have never sold out, and you can buy one on the day you are there if necessary.

 

I can't tell you how many times I have seen people with a Flash pass, and the park was not crowded. Add to that, you are only going to be there for that day, and what if it is pouring rain? You bought a pass, and will not be able to use it.

Thanks, that's a good point. I was afraid it would be super crowded as it's the last day of Christmas break for a lot of schools, but I guess the park must not think so since they start the early closing that day.

Many part-time and seasonal Six Flags Magic Mountain employees are threatening to strike unless they receive health care benefits and paid time off, a representative of the International Association Of Machinists And Aerospace Workers said Thursday.

 

There are 170 employees with the union who work for the company, according to Directing Business Representative Sal Vasquez, and all of them voted “overwhelmingly” to strike at the end of the month unless they are granted health care and paid time off for bereavement and jury duty.

 

The employees’ contracts expire at the end of the month and they plan to proceed with their strike if Six Flags “refuses to bargain,” Vasquez said.

 

“It looks like there might not be movement,” the directing business representative said. “We’ll have no choice but to strike.”

 

The union workers, who include stage and maintenance crews, painters and mechanics, would also like higher wages, but the benefits are their top priority, Vasquez said.

 

“These are the guys who don’t have anything,” he said. “Respect and dignity on the job, that’s priceless.”

 

The union members feel Six Flags has an “anti-union” sentiment and is “dismissing” their call for benefits, according to Vasquez.

 

“Everyone said they were not satisfied with the company’s final offer (for the contracts),” Vasquez said. “We want Six Flags to come to the table and bargain a fair contract for all its employees.”

 

The park plans to continue operating as normal and the company aims to reconcile any differences with the union, according to Six Flags Magic Mountain Communications Manager Sue Carpenter.

 

“Six Flags Magic Mountain has always had a very positive relationship with the local union and we are continuing to negotiate in good faith,” Carpenter said. “Our goal is to avoid a work stoppage and to ensure no interruption in park operations. We always want our guests to have an amazing experience and so the park will be open, maintaining our high guest service standards.”

 

Clarification: Six Flags Magic Mountain offers a full benefits package, including health care and paid time off for bereavement and jury duty, to all of its full-time employees whether or not they are members of a union. Part-time employees are eligible for some benefits depending on the number of hours they work.
