The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Honestly though? You're right, I would be a little butthurt if it were a family coaster. It's their 20th coaster and the self-proclaimed Thrill Capital of the World goes small? It doesn't make sense. You'd think they'd want to make it a statement of some kind, right?

 

But... It might also make total sense to the park and I just have to accept that as a total outsider.

 

The real question is what's coming in 2020?

Unless they dont count green lantern since its been down for over a year and then build their 20 for 2020.

I'm going out on a VERY thin limb here... but totally suspecting SFMM's 2019 addition to be the world's fastest accelerating roller coaster. That duals. While racing. Called "West Coast Racers."

 

 

As long as it's not a B&M dive yawner, I think we have a winner.

I think if that turns out to be true, people will be very happy with the announcement. I just can’t see SFMM getting the Vekoma race car coaster as the 4 person cars will be terrible with capacity. Maybe if each side is a dual loading station (thus loading 16 people at a time) and they ran at least 4 cars on each side, then the capacity wouldn’t be too bad. But the whole family racing coaster just doesn’t fit in with SFMM’s “Thrill Capital of the World” slogan. On the other hand, the world’s fastest accelerating coaster fits in perfectly.

You didn't go out on a limb . . . You just Red-it

Since when does Magic Mountain care about a ride’s hourly capacity?

Hey, now, wait a minute, you're telling me 6+ minute dispatch times on single train operation isn't great capacity?!

Funny! This is my exact prediction as well! I guess great minds and all...

New Coaster / Cyclone Bay Update - Rumor - (8/27/18) I'm not sure how legit this rumor is, but according to the latest word sent my way the new coaster coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain may not be S&S or Mack at all... but would you believe an... RMC? I'm really not sure if this kind of thing would be happening so soon, but the source of this rumor claims it will be the first RMC Raptor coaster that will also feature dual launches and essentially act like a mini steel version of Twisted Colossus that would send the riders around a second time on a second section of track for racing/dueling action that would include interlocking Dive Loops and Immelmans and a section that looks similar to the much photographed inversions of Twisted Colossus where the one track rolled over into an inversion right over the top of the other.

I usually trust Screamscape (to an extent) but that just sounds ridiculous. I know SFMM isn't prone to logic, but why would they make a major investment that's so darn similar to their current coaster? I know it's not unheard of in the Six Flags chain for a park to add a ride that we see as atrociously similar to an existing ride, but most GP don't notice the similarities.

 

Half these "rumors" sound ridiculous. I guess we'll find out in.... 2 days? But NO MATTER WHAT it ends up being, some enthusiasts are going to be butthurt that they weren't "right" in their pipe-dream predictions. And then chaos will ensue.

^ I don't think the majority of SFMM guests will care. The launch, combined with the "single rail" novelty will look pretty interesting in that back corner. To me this makes more sense than trying to sync up two trains on a lift hill.

 

But um...capacity?
