The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Count me in as one highly recommending West Coast Bash as well. I alternated and did SFMM in 2013 and 2015 and Knott’s in 2014. Couldn’t go in 2016. Such an amazing experience from both parks, and everybody is so nice and inviting, and you can really tell how much work the Alveys put into the event. And for what you get, it’s also a REALLY good price! I believe I read somewhere in the Ask Alvey forum or something that they are indeed having a 2018 WCB this September, but of course plans could change.

Other minor notes: Honda Express seemed to be down for refurbishment. TC running 3 trains, even with low crowds. FT only ran one at park opening (I didn't stay long, so I hope they added another later, but not sure). And Classic Revolution (no VR) had a line going all the way down the ramp at 11:30. Guess it's found it's groove with the GP? I was surprised to see it having a line that long..

 

FT only has 1 train onsite. The other one is gone for inspection / maintenance.

 

This is what happens when you have so many coasters but not enough staff in the cycle shop.

WTF is there anyway they are going to allow a upgrade for season pass holders?

^I'm curious to see the pricing structure on these tiers. I wonder if they try to price these high this year and then start raising the Gold Pass tier as well so that they pull up pass prices across the board.

 

Ride updates:

Goliath is indeed open.

 

Green Lantern (again, for the two people that care) is down indefinitely. The park hasn't said that it's going to stay down forever, but from what I've heard it's going to be down for a while.

 

Apocalypse is down again. They keep having to do maintenance on its track and they can't seem to keep up with it. Rumors have really started to fly that Cyclone Bay might see a 2019 refresh so who knows what the future holds for this ride.

I wonder why they are taking so long to announce what is going on with Green Lantern.

What rumors have you heard about a Cyclone Bay refresh? If it's going to happen, they pretty much have to start from the ground up in that section of the park.

^ My hope is that most of those shops will come down, completely opening up that area. Since Apocalypse really isn't enough to attract guests to that area, they will add something that stands out next to it, Or if they were to go cheap, they might RMC it, which ironically would be the second GCI in the state to get the treatment. Can't wait to sit back and watch people flip out if they decided to do it lol

 

As for Green Lantern, I actually like the ride, but I'm afraid that bad boy may be done for!

I don't see either Apocolypse or Green Lantern going anywhere.

 

They just spent a ton of money reinvesting in Apocalypse over the summer with it's retracking. And Green Lantern is not even 7 years old yet, and is very compact. If anything I could see it being relocated to another park, maybe to SFStL as they haven't had a new coaster in quiet some time. Or really any seasonal park where they would be able to refurb it in the off season.

 

It will be interesting to see what season pass pricing is on the new passes.

When I was doing the survey and they were considering these tiers, it wasnt a huge amount per mont. Like Gold Plus was 7.89 per month, Platinum was 8.99, Diamond was 11.99, and Diamond Elite was I think like 19.99, that one was a substantial difference I remember.

 

Also while these extra upper tier discounts are obviously only for MM, I imagine anything Gold or above would still function as a Gold Pass at other parks. Come to think of it I'll want to confirm that, because I was thinking about one of these, but not if it wouldn't also get me into SFDK.

It really is an interesting list of benefits. I definitely would want clarity on which features would work at other Six Flags parks. I don't expect many, but some must transfer... at least free general parking and early entry at other Six Flag parks that offer it, equal to the typical Gold Pass, right?

 

Any idea how they're going to regulate things like FastPass on one or two rides (depending on level)? I assume they're scan your membership pass somehow (similar to how Universal does it, and probably why they'll provide a lanyard, as Universal does for Platinum passes that also get Express). But to my knowledge, Six Flags had never done that before, so it'd be an entire new process for them. One that does not mingle with the current Q-Bot system. Does that mean that'll be going away? Or will there be two systems?

 

I really, really despise monthly payments. But some of those benefits are pretty intriguing. If they can pull this off, and the price isn't too outrageous, it could be interesting.

I'm just as excited about the new membership levels as the frequent visitor program they surveyed about. If they do it, I hope it catches on to other parks.

 

Going back to the memberships, if the cost that they had on the survey is true, I might have no problem shelling out $20 per month for Platinum or Platinum Elite (especially if the perks can be used at other parks).

Just what does "Priority Preferred Parking" and "Preferred Parking" mean? do guests park closer or are they just guaranteed not to have to park in the dirt/gravel lot?

 

i was curious about that as well. the parking next to X2 is valet parking right? i figure that will fill up real fast if it was used for preferred parking.

Six Flags America's 2019 addition confirmed!

I assume they’ll be taking the first section of the lot that isn’t handicapped and making it preferred.

 

If they reconfigure the roads and grass areas up front, that could be prime parking real estate as well.
