The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Can I expect Six Flags Magic Mountain to be dead tomorrow, even though this whole week is Bring a Friend for Free? Does that have much of an effect on off-season weekday crowds? Thanks.

My brother, who is a ride op at SFMM, said the park has been consistently dead during the week. The only day it's typically crowded this time of year is Saturday.

Just asking, but when does Spring Break usually happen, around this time?

I can never figure it out, like Easter Weekend, from year to year, although I'm remembering,

it's so-many-weeks or so, before Easter Weekend? And does it vary from state to state?

 

Thanks in advance for the information.

^It varies by state, county and city. Even with colleges/universities and public schools. It could fall anywhere from the end of February to the end of April depending on location. Where I live (in Florida) there are already several counties out for spring break, but the county I live in is the week before Easter. My nephews & niece in Georgia has the week after Easter off, as do the schools where I grew up in Charlotte, NC. It can be confusing since it's never all at the same time.

^ Thanks. I did look it up...and it made me totally dizzy, lol! So many variations!

And then there was Easter Weekend, moving around as it does.

It makes it crazy this time of year trying to go to the parks during Spring break season. My hubby works for the schools here so we usually go with family to either SeaWorld Orlando and/or Busch Gardens Tampa during that time (we get them discount tickets). It never fails to be one of the busier times we go (Christmas/NYE being the busiest). If none of the family is planning to go, we just don't this time of year...lol I think however we may go to BGT the day before Easter since Boyz II Men will be performing there. It's one of the few concerts I'd like to go during the Food & Wine Festival this year. That's a Saturday...oh joy...lol We already know it's going to be packed just because of Spring Break, but also a Saturday with a major concert/festival going on too. I don't intend on riding much that day.

^ And all that you posted there, just freeked me out, LOL! Christmas and New Years are set dates, so that's not too hard for us.

But Easter and Spring Break never fail to make me pause when planning a U.S. trip and wonder....are we missing it...or not? But we

usually can get our yearly calendars well in advance of planning, so that helps, in regards to when Easter Weekend actually is, etc.

A small part of the (crumbling) parking lot is being repaved.

 

Fixed most of the drinking fountains.

 

With this new off season schedule, nearly every ride is a walk on during the week. Most crews don't care about unlimited re-rides, as long as there is no one in the queue, or you fill in empty seats. Marathon Mountain is now a reality!

 

Lex was stuck high today w/guests for an unusual amount of time. Air compressor issue.

 

Intermittent track work on Twisted.

 

Vertigo is one of the new games. More changes coming in that area by June.

 

If you haven't been lately, this is an incredible time to visit the magical mountain. You can ride a collection of the best thrill rides in the world, with basically no wait times.

Los Angeles Unified School District's Spring Break is the last week of March. The William S. Hart School District (local to Santa Clarita) has their Spring Break during the first week of April. Expect increased crowds at SFMM during those two weeks, then it'll taper back off towards what you're seeing now until June when schools are out.

Nothing is wrong, it's minor track work, but expect some downtime in the next week or so

 

Just because I'm curious. . . Do you have actual proof of this, or are you just guessing???

 

Not trying to be an ass, just wondering how you came to this conclusion.

 

I only ask, because I think this is the first I've hear of an iBox coaster needing track work...?

Just called guest services and they said that they hope to get it up by this weekend. Didn't say what the trouble was. I hope it's up by Monday as I'm coming down from Utah. I also plan to go to Knotts (got a season pass), so if twisted colossus and xcelerator is down for my trip, that would be very bad. Please magic mountain, don't let me down.

i've seen a couple pictures of some guys in the structure. not sure what they were working on exactly.

 

also, at Silver Dollar City, the mechanics told us they do replace the top layer of track sometimes on Outlaw Run. that could be because of steel on steel. but i was still a tiny bit surprised.

I went yesterday to get my Diamond Pass and they did not have them. I was told to come back in 3 weeks to pick up. So here I have this pass that I bought on line and could not use the benefits it offers, nor get the bottle or lanyard. So now I have to go back when Spring break is going on and having to deal with the idiot kids.

 

I got in a few rides before I got sick. First ride was FT and I noticed this lady in a wheel chair with 2 teens and they were telling her to get on, she didn't want to. Well after a few thoughts, she got on and sat right behind me. Well from the time we launched she was screaming I'M DYING, I'M DYING! Then at reverse launch and forward shot out of the tunnel, her screams were louder. We crested the top of the loop and hit the brakes. Now she is screaming for a Medic (I NEED A MEDIC, I NEED A MEDIC). I grabbed my hat and keys from the box and left. I didn't want to stay for that drama.

 

Park was nice rides looking decent. Noticed The Classic Revy trains looking a little tired and beat up! I seen two kids taggin on the back of seat when I was waiting. I yelled at them (WHAT THE F*&*! WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT?) People looked at me and an employee came over and I showed her. Well the opened the lap bars and they got escorted out!

 

Hoping to be out in a few weeks to pick up my Diamond Pass. Hopefully I could met up with some fellow TPR peep's, If you don't mind an loud outspoken guy?

^Good on you for speaking up and getting employees involved. If people actually get caught tagging they just get thrown out by security for the most part now.

 

Also, Twisted Colossus is back up, so for those of you planning on going today or this weekend have fun!

That’s great to hear that Twisted Colossus is back up! I’m a little bummed since I went yesterday and missed it by just a day, but oh well, the park was absolutely dead so that makes up for the loss.

Awesome! I despise people who vandalize property, such disgusting and repugnant behavior. Well done!
