The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2205 - Opening Day Photo TR!

Recommended Posts

Hey! I'm working on a short documentary video on Flashback's run at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Does anyone have any photos I would be able to use in it? I will of course give full credit.

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

I have a few questions for the locals. I'm taking my son to the park for the first time this Friday. How will the crowds be? Also, will some rides be down since it's a weekday. Any other advice will be welcomed!

 

Thanks!

It should be dead with schools in session.

I'm excited to check out SFMM during a totally dead day next week. My spring break falls obnoxiously early this year (it's March 2-6), which is kind of annoying for some reasons (shorter operating hours at parks), but it will be a total ghost town at both Knott's and SFMM and I am looking forward to marathoning rides like crazy.

Maybe it's because I grew up (and live) in the west, but I would gladly take desert heat over the gross, humid, swampy, sticky heat in the east. I had a couple days at Cedar Point and Carowinds that were in the 90s but felt WAY worse due to the humidity. It had me wishing I was back out west in the ultra-dry heat. You can actually sweat and cool off when it's dry!

Same. 105-degree desert heat is more bearable to me than the 85-degree, sticky, humid heat I experienced at Cedar Point a couple of years ago.

 

If I'm looking for fish or other non-meat items today, is my best bet Food etc?

Food Etc. is a good option, but there are a few others, as well. Inside Food Etc., there is a Mexican place where you could get a salad or a cheese quesadilla. Across the midway from Food Etc. is a fish and chips place (which used to be inside Food Etc).

Across from Full Throttle is a Go Fresh Cafe, where I believe everything they sell is either vegetarian or vegan.

Back by Gold Rusher, there is a black bean burger restaurant and a pizza place.

They have a number of veggie options, one of which is at the Full Throttle Sports Bar (or whatever it's called). Ultimately, it's still all theme park food, but they do have a better selection of "healthy" food than some of the other parks I've visited.

Thanks everyone! I'll keep an eye out if I see something that looks palatable with my dining plan, but I'll be ready to have a big meal after.

 

It's Six Flags. if you want something without any actual meat in it you could probably just order a cheeseburger.

 

 

That's entirely fair. I think this is the first time I've gone to a theme park on a Friday during Lent so I've never had this issue before.

I agree. We went to Texas in the summer a couple years ago and the humidity was unbearable, felt difficult to breathe at times. I'll take California dry heat any day.

1. Is Twisted Colossus indeed now unlimited reservations on ALL levels of the flash pass?

 

2. Is West Coast Racers one time only, and only for Gold and Platinum levels of the flash pass?

 

3. Other than WCR, are there any restrictions on the regular version of the flash pass? The most recent info on the SFMM site seems to indicate that all other rides are included but just want to make sure!

 

4. Is there any discount for any levels of the flash pass for members or season passholders?

 

Just to report back on my own questions after visiting the park on 2/23 in case this info could be helpful to others. Twisted Colossus IS now unlimited reservations on all levels of the flash pass which is great!! WCR, Full Throttle and X2 were all single use only. There was a discount of $5.00 per person for the flash pass with our lowly gold membership. Not sure if there are additional discounts with the upper membership tiers. We went with the gold flashpass, so the current price was $75 ($80 minus the discount) per person.

 

Although the park was only moderately busy on the Sunday that we visited, it would have been awful without the flash pass due to many 1 train ops... Full Throttle, Tatsu and Apocalypse would have been especially brutal. I hated waiting for the train to go around several times just in the station, so I can't imagine the regular queue. This was my first visit to the park since 2003 or 2004 (!) so I was nervous about picking up all 5 coasters that I needed. However, I was pleasantly surprised that they were all up and running during this off-season time of year. In fact, I believe Superman was the only coaster closed all day.
