The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2205 - Opening Day Photo TR!

Recommended Posts

Hey all - I'll be at Six Flags MM on Thursday, Dec 5th and Tuesday, Dec 10th. Do you guys think it will be crowded given that it's Holiday in the Park in December, or not too bad since they are weekdays?

 

Both of those days should be "ghost towns" according to Is It Packed and I agree with them. Kids will still be in school, so the mid-week days in early December should be dead.

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

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.

 

Well I still remember Fright Fest when we worked there... Unplugging extension cords and resetting a breaker in Baja Ridge for their "scare zone"... All... Night... Long...

Looks like the park opens at 12:00pm so extra time added to the end of the day and open until 8pm so in a sense you get a extra 30 min verses the normal opening time of 10:30am. HITP does attract people and its a pretty fun event. It should not be to crowded as its weekdays your looking at.

Now now... It was made available to passholders in late 1996...

 

I rode it once for the passholder preview, then maybe freefall once, then Batman 50 laps without getting off. LOL

 

Passholder previews were always great for riding whatever they opened in addition to the preview! A billion hour line for the preview ride but then practically unlimited rides on some other rides...

Does anyone know the timing of when Apocalypse is open? I went this past Sunday with the hopes of riding but it was closed the whole time I was there and the attendant guarding the entrance wasn't able to give me any information.

The gate to the back area should be open on fright fest days. If there was an attendant standing right outside of Apocalypse in that area then I cannot help you as it is unrelated to when that area is open.

Since no one's mentioned it, track is complete and the station is starting to go up for WCR.

 

Opening: Dec 30 2019. "See, we told you it was new for 2019!"

First time visiting this upcoming weekend. Flash pass still just 1 lap on TC, X2 and FT?

 

Haunted houses any good here?

 

To the first question, yes. Same thing for Crazanity and Superman I believe. For the Haunted Houses, the set design is kinda cool, but there's no soundtrack in most of them and barely any scare actors. If you've been to horror nights or scary farm then be prepared to be let down big time.

Thanks for the info. I imagine it'll be a zoo this Saturday but I think we'll have fun. We are doing Knotts Sunday so perhaps I appreciate it more after doing Six Flags.

 

When does parking normally open? Front gates? (Some parks open some parts early, etc.) Figured I'd double check. I like to be one of the first in the park.

Just went this past Saturday (first time on a weekend for me), and it was crowded. Bought the regular flash pass and got 5 rides in between 12p to 5:30p. You might be able to get a few more as I was with an 8 year old new to coasters and we definitely were not efficient. I would recommend getting at least the Gold or Platinum. The regular flash pass times were 30-60 minutes for most rides. Tatsu, Colossus, Goliath, and X2 were 90-120 mins. I would recommend going early, the parking gates open early, I believe it's 930 or 10. You can buy the flash pass after the security check and before the entrance gates. That will save you some time and allows you to get in the flash pass entrance line. When I went early in previous years, not all rides were opened at 1030. Just ride what is open. I've noticed usually Tatsu, Full Throttle, and Colossus are opened at 1030. On Sat, Revolution was running 1 train and Colossus was running 3. Lex Luthor was closed and Superman was running one side. Also, you can't access Apocolypse from the DC area. You have to go by Tatsu/Roaring Rapids to get there.

At this point, I will actually be surprised if WCR opens in 2019. I could very well see a January or February opening.

 

A December opening is possible and probably the most likely scenario, but as we all know by now, NOTHING is predictable with this ride.

Right there with you. If this ride actually opens in 2019 I’ll be shocked.

Superman hasn't been on FP in years. Crazanity, FT, X2 one time rides. TC is unlimited.

^ That's awesome if Twisted Colossus is finally unlimited. The site still says 1X, but it wouldn't be the first time the Flash Pass site isn't up-to-date.

They always tell you it’s 1x only, but every time I use a flashpass they seem to be buggy. When they scan your watch, the reserve doesn’t go away. So technically you can go again over and over. I have to manually cancel the reserve after they scan me, if I want to reserve for a different ride after I get off the current one.

Even if the watch cancels correctly, it's unlimited rides on TC.

This is apparently the current status of West Coast Racers. It looks great but I feel like a late December opening is the best that we could hope for.
