The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

That checks out. Probably made that sign back when spinning classes were all the rage, hoping to sell it to a gym, only they were a bit too late and the fad ended. Then they got this order and Glen in the warehouse got all excited. "Wait RIGHT HERE, guys. I've got something you're gonna love!"

 

Hilarious!

There are other jobs available.  Not even close to a fair comparison.  And I’m someone who is a causality of this nonsense. The rational argument you should be making is how if the goal is to kee

On Saturday 11/21, Theme Park Review was invited to see the Six Flags Magic Mountain Holiday in the Park Drive-thru Experience. It’s rare for park patrons to get to drive through a theme park, so this

I received an email from Knott's today asking Californians to help reopen the parks by messaging the governor.  It took me only a couple of minutes to copy and paste some stuff, so it is super easy, a

Wow, you can pretty easily see where the old part of the sign ends and the fix begins

Not only is there a color change, but the lettering style from one side to the other is slightly different as well!

I really don't even care what they call it as this point, to be honest. I love pendulum rides so I'm super excited to ride this. I'm going in late July but I'm honestly not gonna get my hopes up for it to be open by then.

Late July seems about the time they opened Justice League last year so you should be OK. They need to open it BEFORE the 2019 Six Flags New Ride Announcement. That is the worse case

Just finished my first shift as a ride op at Full Throttle and wow what a great time! Such a great crew and we were pushing trains out as fast (and safely) as we could. With 1 train operations, we were at about a 3:15 dispatch time and the ride itself is about 1:40 long. It’s very hard to go much faster with the station layout.

 

Can’t wait to see you guys around the park!

^I think you should give credit to whoever took that photo if it's not yours.

 

But wow, that is HUGE!

 

Three cranes for a flat ride? Seems weird to me.

 

Also, how the heck did someone get to that location to take that picture? I don't know if I've ever seen the park from that angle!

^ That was really rude to assume it wasn't his. That photo location is pretty accessible if you go to SCV often, there's a hiking trail behind the park and on the other side of the road.

The photo was taken by me, I am one of the construction foreman doing the land development behind the park. Also, the land behind the park is not accessible at all to any public. It is private property And the property owners are very serious about trespassing. Not to mention now that we are doing all the work back there it is extremely dangerous. The reason for multiple crane is most likely due to the fact that 1/2 of the structure needs to be supported until the other half is in place.

A whole bunch of construction workers have been posting both stills and very great videos from the construction area back there in the mountains. Just look them up using the Six Flags hash tag on instagram and search them out as some are really cool sort of like watching dancing construction trucks.

Rude to ask someone to give the photographer due credit in case it wasn't his? How else should I have asked?

 

What planet are you living on?

 

Last but not least, thanks for the nice photo sprkn_ranger. Very nice pic and I appreciate you shared it.

Great post, IntaMAN. Really building up that credibility.

^SFMM starting construction on a project that hasn't even been announced yet?? I don't buy it

 

In all seriousness though that corner of the park is where the rumored 2019 coaster is supposed to go, very interesting.

Especially when they haven't even got their 2018 project up and running yet.

 

I'm still thinking the park forgot about it.

Forgot they filmed an episode of Lucifer at the park. Just came up on my DVR. Some really nice photography of the park actually. Couldn't help bursting out laughing when they refer to Viper as "the scariest ride in the park", and after the characters literally walked there from X2. Weird how TV and movies always gravitate towards Arrows. I saw the movie Action Point last night where Johnny Knoxville runs his own theme park, and the Six Flags stand-in had one coaster which was an Arrow Looper. The new vacation movie featured an Arrow looper. Wonder if there's something that makes the track photogenic or something.
