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

Worlds first Giga Larson Super Loop. You heard it here first

I actually would be interested in a > 300 foot tall Larsen Loop, that'd be pretty interesting. At least for a little while.

Why would Magic Mountain build another racer ....plus that's basically two coasters and people are already saying they wont fork up the cash for one Mack coaster.

 

I think Screamscape was pointing to a racing t

themed coaster..

 

I just hope if it is a coaster, which it's looking like it.might be, it's not another Yolo. I mean full circuit, decent length, no gimmick, could do without more inversion, airtime beast with no breaks on the biggest drop or a pace killing full stop MCBR, or second lift, get off like "that was perfect" kind of ride..not "good ride but should've (add elements here)" disappointment.

 

Probably be the giga Larson loop tho, LOL..."you guys want a Giga so bad, here's your flippin' Giga"

If we get anything remotely similar to Time Traveler, I will be VERY happy. I was going to say we'll have to wait a while, but geez it's already mid-July. Announcements are less than two months away!

A Mack Spinner doesn’t make sense if it’s going to be race themed. Also, Six Flags isn’t going to worry about the development behind them, most of the development right next the the park is going to be retail/commercial/industrial etc...the residential buildings should be further back away from the park itself. Newhall Land/5points isn’t stupid enough to build homes that close and have the commercial lots farther away.

I am overjoyed to see these Giant Discoveries becoming household rides across the SF chain. I've only ever been on Black Widow at Kennywood, and it's probably my second favorite ride in the entire park. When you think of the specs, though (170 foot max swing, 75 mph) it totally makes sense that these things would have the capability of being marquis attractions. In many cases, they're more impressive than some coaster-types.

Perhaps there's no correlation, but I can't imagine that the park would be able to build something that massive in the area due to the proximity of that new residential development. I assume that land was developed with the understanding that SFMM wouldn't radically change the landscape or increase noise levels or whatnot. I'm also hoping it's not a spinner (although it'd make sense) — or an RMC — but that's just because I'd personally love to see a record-breaking B&M floater (something like a cross between Diamondback and Fury 325 that spans a massive amount of the park), or some kind of oversized multi-launcher like Taron or Helix. I also can't imagine what they could do to fix up Apocalypse. It seems to be the design itself that tears the track up as the ride is non-stop speed and turns. It seems that without more hills to reduce momentum, the ride is always going to pull itself apart. Anyhow, it's nice to see the park's clear dedication to investing in new rides and improving on a regular basis. They've done a lot over the last decade or so.

 

 

I assume that Crazanity is increasing the noise impact on the adjacent speculative development. Having people scream high in the air will not be an amenity for the new housing (nor would seeing photos of the fires last year, but I digress). And SF obviously won't be putting up noise shields for their new ride ...

 

I'm not sure that SFMM "needs" a new coaster but it sounds like that is what they're installing, with a larger version of Time Traveler as the best guess. It's a style they don't have, making SFMM the world's largest rollercoaster museum.

Personally I’m kind of hoping it’s not a Spinner, but I can see the commercials now claiming “worlds tallest spinning coaster” If you live in Southern California you know exactly what commercials I’m talking about lol

 

the sea world commercial is terrible. lol

OMG it's terrible "the only upside down view of Mission Bay"

"Coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain in 2019. Time Racer! California's tallest, fastest spinning coaster! Also new for 2019, Adrenaline Alley, with all new shops, dining and games!" I can hear the commercials now!

What's even worse is that you're facing opposite of Mission Bay while you're upside down - You can't even see it from any part of the ride! Instead you get a nice view of my apartment,

I don't know why, but hearing Mack just makes me think of a Helix style coaster with the magnitude of the sheer size rumors. It just seems to fit to me.

 

Station back in the corner where Deja Vu was, either follow the Southern line or Western line of the park. I hope they don't take out Roaring Rapids.

 

The park needs its water rides.

 

In fact, it would be nice if the park did a water ride back there, like a worlds first Hyper-Aquatrax LOL.

I hope the rapids are not removed either. A coaster(s), could easily interact with the rapids ride. There would be no need, as far as space wise, to remove it.

Believe it or not, very rarely does something get out that was not intended to get out. People in the business understand their livelihood depends on confidentiality. The people who do actually leak are the ones who end up out of the industry, whether its their actual career or running a theme park website.
