The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Screamscape reported a possible rumor that tidal wave may be removed and the park could add a Mack power splash in its place as well as the green lanterns old spot. When I first heard about Aquaman going to Over Texas I thought that SFMM would replace green lantern with one. It makes more sense that tidal wave would have to be involved as well as it looks as though they do take up a large amount of space. I would be happy if this comes true as they look like a great water ride and SFMM could definitely use another one.

Turntable please

 

Seconded, Tidal wave already gets a ridiculous line for what it is when it is hot out. We don't need a repeat of it with something replacing it.

 

It would make sense to have a powersplash for MM as they really want to get back up to 20 coasters but they also don't want to take out one of their water rides. Not to mention they can just theme it to Aquaman and that whole back corner of the park will be DC (especially if they retheme crazanity to Harley Quinn or Joker or something).

Tells someone to keep politics out of it. Procedes to add politics. Typical 😄   As for SFMM, they're going to follow what is required by the state... At least on paper. So your sho

Swung by the park for a few hours to see how things would be in the covid world, and I have to say that magic mountain did a pretty good job. For those wondering, it appears the only checks for r

You must be new around here if you think I’m a “boot licker” for SFMM. 😂 I’m just someone who realizes covid enforcement is a joke everywhere now and understands that if you chose to go somewhere

I’m planning a trip to 6FMM and Knott’s this winter. I’m hoping for some info on when is the best time to go and if I’ll need 2 days at magic mountain to get all the credits and enjoy the park. Dates are totally flexible and I’m looking for Jan/feb recommendations as I think my Canadian stat holidays might be different and I don’t want to show up to super busy park.

Any dates I should straight up avoid?

Anything else like restaurants or tourist stuff and such outside the park would also be appreciated

You only need 2 days if you go on a busy day. I use the past records and estimates from https://queue-times.com/parks/32/calendar to judge park crowds.

Here is the one for knotts, https://queue-times.com/parks/61/calendar .

 

As far as places outside of the park, off the top of my head, Philippe just outside of chinatown for a great french dip. Papa Cristo's over in Pico Union is a great greek place. If you have a big movie you are interested in around the time you visit, I would recommend hitting Edwards 21 over at Irvine Spectrum if they have it on their huge Imax, it's a great screen.

If you go on a weekday, you should only need one day at each park as they should be completely dead. You will want to avoid the MLK holiday weekend Jan 18-20 and the Presidents' Day holiday weekend on Feb 15-17. I would also avoid the first week of January as kids will still be out of school on Winter Break. Also, you should check the Knotts calendar for scheduled ride closures. The ride closure dates are listed at the bottom of the calendar page:

They should've kept the area part of DC Universe instead of retheming it to Boardwalk.

Visiting SFMM on Friday 18th October. Will be there from park opening time so will the crowds be light during the day before the Fright Fest mob arrives or will it be rammed all day? Not too fussed about the Fright Fest stuff, just there for the rides! Any opinions gratefully received! Thanks!!

The Grunt Lantern (Green Lantern) is finally gone. I took this picture before they removed all the steel support structure. Good luck to the Canadians with this one. I only rode it twice and that was two times too many!!!

 

Also the spaghetti bowl is complete now for West Coast Racers. Looks mesmerizing...

Good bye Grunt Lantern

One other thing I forgot to mention. Apocalypse is back and running great! Today there was a membership ERT and I rode it seven times without getting off. It's VERY RE-RIDEABLE. The only thing missing is the fire.

I love fire...

Soooo....fright fest....they put no effort into this year.

 

The scarezone in front of bugs bunny world is gone and the new maze is 90% the old vault 666.

 

Best thing is that apocalypse is running good. Second best is the slider show.

 

Condemned is still a good maze and sewer of souls still has one really neat effect, but the other mazes are very tired and not so good.

Also planning a trip....the million dollar question,,,,,,,How much longer until West Coast Racers is ready? Any inside scoop?

Now someone is saying that they stopped construction work because of financial issues with going 365 days.

Construction was still going on last week when I went. Not sure where this info is coming from.

I hated both at one point. But ever since I started pushing my shoulders into the OSTR on stand-ups, I've started liking them.

I'm going to have to do that next time. I've always loved rides on Riddler's but my last visit last year I couldn't stand it. Both my friend and I complained about the head banging and we both have multiple earrings which I probably didn't have on my previous visits. It was pretty painful as we kept getting stabbed by them. I'll have to push my shoulders up like you suggested next time.

Well, Riddler is the best stand up. Saying it's a great coaster is...a bit of a stretch.

 

It's certainly not top 10, but unless you stand on the seat wrong, it's still a real fun ride. Some floater air, a little force, nice giant loop for some hangtime. That can be great to someone!
