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

Umm. Why was Apocalypse removed from the SFMM site?

They list a bunch of other rides at the park as “temporarily closed” so if it was WCR related why not do that. Completely removing it from the site is weird.

I predict MM will get another coaster for 2021 to be the first park with 20 operational coasters. If they sit on there hands Energylandia with its 2 a year will catch and pass them lmao. I think a single rail similar to Jersey Devil

I just checked the site using Chrome from my laptop and it is still there.

It’s still listed on the app, too.

I was in the park over the weekend and asked about that with the Apocalypse staff/manager while riding it (so yes, it's still open). It was just an error, and they further clarified that Apocalypse will be open on weekends only until WCR is up.

^ Thanks for clarifying. I remember Apocalypse being fantastic back in 2014, but it was brutal when I rode it a few years later. Based on the recent accounts, it sounds like it's running like 2014 again.

 

My 2014 rides were honestly better than Gold Striker.

Apocalypse is definitely running better than Gold Striker right now. Gold Striker shuffled and jackhammered like crazy when I rode it about 3 months ago. Apocalypse, on the other hand, is running great.

I'm even comparing my 2014 Gold Striker rides to 2014 Apocalypse rides and I preferred Apocalypse. And Gold Striker was about as smooth as a traditional wood coaster could be back then.

 

I agree Gold Striker has started to have a shimmy, but I found it to be no problem at all (granted I have a super high tolerance for rough rides).

^Yes. If you do a search of this thread or the ask Alvey board it has been discussed quite a bit. VERY hard to do on public transportation. Takes forever. Won’t get there for opening and have to leave before closing. Assuming you are down in the LA or Anaheim area. Rent a car or use Uber/Lyft.

Is it complicated to go to this park by public transport from Los Angeles?

It may be that I go there at the end of February.

Thank you for your answers

I just did it about a month ago. Now, location is key as I was staying on Hollywood blvd and Western. I ended up taking the metro rail red line to the North Hollywood station. From there, I took the Santa Clarita 757 to the Valencia blvd/Mcbean transfer station. Got on the Santa Clarita 7 (Magic Mountain) and got off at Magic Mountain. Overall the trip took about 1 hour and 40 minutes BUT it cost me around 6 dollars. I left a little after 7 and got there before 9. I actually got there too early as the parked opened at 10AM. I actually took public transportation to Knotts as well as Universal Studios and I really enjoyed being able to not fight traffic and travel for a fraction of the cost. If you need more help just shoot me a PM!

Metro Red Line—North Hollywood 757 Express route:

From Downtown Los Angeles, take the Metro Red Line to the North Hollywood Station. Then take the North Hollywood 757 Express bus to the McBean Regional Transit Station (MRTC). From there connect to a Santa Clarita Transit routes 3 & 7 to Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Didn't know they had public transportation routs on their site! And they are accurate as that is the route I took. If I had to gripe it would be about having to transfer twice but I literally got off one bus onto the other with no time in between. I definitely recommend it if you have at least 2 hours before and after the park to spare.
