The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2205 - Opening Day Photo TR!

Recommended Posts

Cyclone Bay seems to be now officially closed for their new 2019 project. I have a feeling this area of the park is gonna become Adrenaline Alley as Six Flags trademarked the name a few months ago. Photo is from Oh Whoops on Instagram

 

Pretty huge section blocked off, whatever is coming looks to be gigantic

^^ SFMM could take the opportunity to become the first park with two RMC I-Box conversions! Then they would definitely have two of the best coasters on the planet lol! Undeniably a better use of Apocalypse, and I haven't even ridden it lol!

I really hope they hire GCI to do the same treatment they did on Ghostrider to Apocalypse. Retrack the whole thing a theme it to a junkyard/Car shop were the trains are now themed to cars and the story is you are taking the cars out for a test ride and it gets wild. Also Six Flags has now trademarked West Coaster Racer and Maxx Force.

 

I'm agreeing with the second comment. Let GCI work on it like they did Ghostie at Knotts. Apocalypse used to be a great ride. I was in my top 10 wood. I could easily marathon it, especially at night. That was great!

Right now, the first half is good. After you come out of that last tunnel - it's brutal. I've always said it must be the sun. Inside the first tunnel turn, it's as "smoooth as a baby's butt." That part of the track is never exposed to the sun. I think this ride could easily be restored to it's former glory...

 

Goldstriker is already rough. GhostRider is already rougher again (better than it's CCI days, but nowhere close to how it ran when it opened). Hiring GCI isn't going to solve the long term problems.

Adrenaline Alley and West Coaster Racer, I’d say there’s a connection there. I can’t imagine them doing another dueling coaster just off the heels of TC. I have no clue the direction they might go on this one.

 

Just a guess, but I think West Coast Racers is going to be a rename of the Cyclone 500 go Karts to match the new theme. The new coaster sounds more like Maxx Force.

I'm not quick to tear down coasters at all, but Ghostrider is in a whole 'nother ballpark. That ride had been great for almost 2 decades before it had to be gutted and redone. It's an icon of the park. It's a GREAT coaster. Terminator/Apocalypse not so much. I'm not sure many guests would even know if the ride was gone.

 

That whole corner of the park needs a lot of work, and while I'm not really a big fan of how Six Flags "re-does" its areas, it is nice to know they're atleast going to give it a shot. I'm praying for a Mack or Intamin. A Time Traveler type ride would be OK, but at this point I'm not sure it'd bring me back to the park, and I'm not sure it fits with what the park needs.

 

Man, I miss Deja Vu!

 

I don't think it's a spinner, but something MUCH bigger that will redefine that area of the park. As for Apocalypse, I personally don't think it's that bad at all. But I wouldn't cry if they RMC it. I was just saying that tearing down the ride would be a waste. A conversion of some sort still gets some use out of it.

I was thinking that West Coast Racers does not sound like the name of a major coaster. I mean it'd almost be refreshing to have such a simple, non-ridiculous name at a Six Flags park, but still.

 

I swear if Maxx Force becomes a thing, I will insist on spelling it Max Force, to combat the Six Flags silliness a little.

I made that walk about 4 or 5 times to and from that Hilton when I was there in 2013. It's definitely doable, but be prepared to be a bit gassed.

Yeah I agree. It's doable, just not fun. Many times I have stayed at the HGI with plans to walk to the park, but then as I got ready to do it I decided I really didn't want to. Plus it makes it that much harder to rest in your room in the middle of the day and come back.

 

The original poster is from Switzerland and probably finds talk of this hike up the hill comical.

I feel like Deja Vu would be in better shape if it was still at Magic Mountain, it's just so rough as Goliath at New England, came off that ride in the 2nd row with an awful headache and was bummed that I had to wait a little bit till the pain went away to ride more rides, you can't ride it anywhere except the first row.

The new rumor from screamscape sounds pretty convincing this will be a Mack coaster and an expensive one!! Is SFMM finally getting their first huge coaster investment since 2006?!!

Terminator was a pretty good investment too and I'd imagine TC was not cheap either. I know the whole Full Throttle project was close to 20 million too I believe.

So I'm at the park today. Brought my swim trunks and sandals so I can check out hurricane harbor for the first time. Never been to a water park to be honest. Any recommendations for my first slide?

 

Try the drop slides. The 2 that have the doors fall from underneath you. Always the best!

Holiday week and 85 degrees heading to 112 this weekend, the park was a ghost town today Monday 7/2. Lets see what tomorrow brings.

So my first visit to hurricane harbor was pretty fun! Except my fatass got stuck on one of the slides! ( The one next to the trap door one.) Back at Magic Mountain and crowds really aren't that bad. Just watched Kwerk, which was fantastic! Now I'm gonna wait around for the fireworks!

It is so dead. Wow.

That must of been right after the fireworks show! Did you get the ERT? I didn't get it cause I have a dining pass and didn't want to spend money on food!

 

By the way, does anyone have an official closing date for Apocalypse/Cyclone bay? Rode it yesterday and it's gotten rougher in just these last couple weeks alone! Also, is there gonna be a pass holder preview for Crazanity? I saw them adding some landscaping and the frame for the entrance sign yesterday, and no water dummies in sight so it seems like a couple more days and it'll be good to go!
