Accepted methods of proof are listed on the website.

Honestly, I wouldn't read too far into this. Six Flags probably doesn't care. The person checking vaccine records at Six Flags isn't going to give a crap. I guarantee that they had no clue what Kstr737's's Excelsior pass was, had never seen one before and had no way whatsoever of scanning it to make sure it was valid. Any reasonable proof will be fine, but I'd probably just take a picture of my CDC card (though I guess I also have the Excelsior pass).

Knowing them, an Instagram post you made of you getting the shot back in April is probably sufficient. They're just going to do the bare minimum.

Living in Seattle, I've had to show my proof of vaccination for several different restaurants, theaters and a Mariners game, and a photo on my phone of my CDC card was fine for all of those. And as coasterbill said, they're not gonna give a crap anyway. There is way too much information to check and match to your ID, and way too many people to get through to be overly meticulous.

I really do want to know who was responsible for this decision making.

”Hey, we know that this card is probably going to be required for a lot of things. Should we make it wallet sized?”

”No. Make it really big and annoying”

”Okay. Then should we have a federal universal digital version then since we’ve known that this moment would be coming for a year “

”No”

Two other  bits of bad news, I've learned from an insider. 😢

Goliath is closed until the end of October

Lex Luthor is closed until the end of November.

Do they ever say why?  Sad to see Goliath closed

As for Lex Luthor, is this ride ever opened?  I usually go to SFMM every Nevada Day (Last Fri of Oct) and I have only been on that ride once in my life (I think the first year or 2nd that it was opened), been closed every other time now.

Probably the same folks in LA county who require vaccine/negative test and still want masks outdoors 🙄

Thankfully if you got your vaccine in LA county, they have a digital pass too. I’ve used that with no problems.

I've posted about a week ago that Goliath is back open! Lex is down for maintenance. It can be temperamental with the sensor adjustments etc.

Went today on Sat.  Got there at 11am.  Long lines for vaccination verification but entry lines were short.  If you have Clear verification, you can skip the vaccine/negative test line.  Most people were wearing masks.  Maybe 5-10% weren't good about it.  No lines for the first few hours for Goliath, TC, Scream, Batman, Riddler, Apocalypse, We used the Flash Pass on WCR, Tatsu, X2, and FT.  Lex Luthor was still down.  Superman was running both sides inconsistently all day

I would say the cat's out of the bag, and I was pretty way off on the theming thinking it would be Shazam themed.

 

they posted this on Twitter today:

FCL4m8AWQAwEgUG.thumb.jpg.f9b9aaaeda2584eb203686bb0a1024a3.jpg

 

strong rumor is that it's the announcement of the Raptor.

and these Red/Yellow colors match the color scheme of the new coaster.

 

know what else is tomorrow, 10/21?

"Wonder Woman Day"

Here is a trip report for last Saturday.  I did West Coast Racers for the first time and really enjoyed it.  I thought the airtime greatly enhanced the ride experience.  The dueling aspect was reminiscent of Twisted Colossus, which was also nice.  The ride length was perfect, longer than most.  The wait time in X2's regular line was a modest one hour late morning.  I rode Superman forwards for the first time and thought it went higher than when it goes in the backward direction.  The wait time in Superman's regular line early afternoon was less than 20 minutes.  Jet Stream was closed early on, but opened up in the evening.  I did it for the first time and thought it was just mediocre, as it was too bumpy and hardly gets you wet.  What I didn't know beforehand is Superman isn't included with the Gold Flash Pass and X2 doesn't have an additional surcharge with Gold.  Lex Luthor and Justice League were both closed.

Six Flags Magic Mountain Announces Record 20th Coaster WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage

The Tallest and Longest Single-Rail Coaster on the Planet Will Debut at The Thrill Capital of the World Summer 2022!

VALENCIA, California — October 21, 2021 — Six Flags Magic Mountain, the undisputed “Thrill Capital of the World,” in partnership with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and DC, today unveiled plans to add yet another record-breaking coaster—WONDER WOMAN™ Flight of Courage—to its unparalleled thrill ride lineup. Six Flags Magic Mountain’s record 20th roller coaster—the most at any theme park in the world—will debut as the tallest and longest single-rail coaster on the planet where riders will fly over 3,300 feet of track, towering 13 stories and soaring at speeds up to 58 miles-per-hour.  The new coaster will be located in the six-acre DC UNIVERSE™ area of the park, which will be expanded and entirely remodeled to include a new, innovative restaurant and bar experience, plus retail locations featuring exclusive DC branded merchandise.

“This is an historic milestone for our park as we introduce the latest addition to our unrivaled coaster dynasty, WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage. Not only is this a record-breaking single-rail coaster, it brings Six Flags Magic Mountain’s coaster count to an unprecedented twenty, the most in the world,” said Park President Don McCoy. “Our partnership with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment makes this accomplishment even more exciting, as we integrate the legacy of an iconic DC Super Hero into the theming of the ride. Additionally, we are creating a more innovative guest experience by redesigning one of our most popular areas, DC UNIVERSE, which will become the home of WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage,” added McCoy.

WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage exemplifies the Super Hero’s traits of strength and speed—showcasing the legacy of Wonder Woman herself. As guests enter the ride queue, influenced by Greek architecture and featuring tropical landscaping, they will be immersed in the story of her life and how she obtained her super powers. Riders will join forces with Wonder Woman in the fight for truth, justice, and equality, to embark on an incredible journey of heroic feats, propelling through dives, banks, rolls, and turns designed to challenge the bravest of thrill seekers.

Key features of WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage include:

Themed entrance portal and queue inspired by the hidden island of Themyscira;

Four sleek trains of 12 passengers each sitting one rider per row along the monorail track;

3,300 feet of single-rail, I-beam track;

Tension-building ascent up a towering, 131-foot lift hill;

Reaching speeds up to 58 mph;

Intense elements including a steep, 87-degree first drop and overbanked cutback; and

Three dramatic inversions including a 180-degree stall, raven dive, and zero-gravity roll.

The newly-themed DC UNIVERSE™ area also includes the popular BATMAN™ The Ride and several other DC themed rides.

Nice addition. I am really glad I decided to give Jersey Devil a second ride later in the day back in August after not caring for my morning ride much. I loved the second ride. It's a good coaster. 

Also, it is pretty hilarious to watch my fellow coaster nerds on social media complain about a cloned ride 2,700 miles from its original. As if even 1% of the guests at Magic Mountain will even know this, let alone feel anything about it. Good, smart move by Six Flags.

So, in other words, business as usual on #coastergram. 👍

I wasn't super impressed with my first ride on Jersey Devil, but like you, after getting a second and third ride on it recently during Fright Fest Power Hours, it's definitely grown on me. It's not as batshit crazy as the prototype raptors but it's a good, solid ride from start to finish. It'll be a good addition to Magic Mountain. Hopefully they can keep the downtime low now that the kinks have been mostly ironed out of the east coast version.

So just to clarify this is essentially a clone of Jersey Devil just maybe a little bit taller and with a different turn at the end into a station that's oriented slightly differently? 

 

Seems like *most* people liked Jersey Devil just fine (besides the obvious enthusiast grumblings) so this should be a solid addition. I like the mention of a new restaurant and bar location being added with it too!

I think WW will be a great addition to the park and gives SFMM a much needed airtime machine.  I would've rather they combined the money for WCR/WW and given us a Giga instead, but it's hard to complain about the park getting a 2nd RMC coaster.  I've ridden the WW raptor at SFFT and absolutely loved it, so I'm interested to see how the longer model compares.

A lot of the issues with Jersey Devil are also due to them trying to run four trains at once. This won't be an issue for Magic Mountain after year one when it runs three trains and keeps one in refurb perpetually forever.

My expectations were extremely low for theming, but in that regard I just wanted to discuss the station...is there anything more Six Flags than slapping "Embassy" on a white box and calling it a day? haha. Made me actually laugh when I was watching the video. Not a fan of the station at all but again, I had low expectations. 

Anyhow, I am so excited for this addition and I think it's a great coaster to round out the 20 coasters in the park. That area of the park desperately needed another people muncher, and it will add a whole new kinetic energy to the back. Not a big fan of the name but that does not actually matter to me.

Lastly, it seems like the views from the lift hill are going to be truly special, especially climbing over the lift hill into the first drop. I'm very excited for some sunset rides on this beast.

This looks great! I like the final wave turn over the pathway as an "extension" of Jersey Devil's layout. That will create some cool visuals from the ground.

And yeah, I am not holding my breath for anything before a June or July opening. I'd love to be pessimistic and make fun of them because of their WCR construction timeline but, to be fair, they are much farther along with this already (with all foundations seeming to be poured and track/supports on site) than West Coast Racers ever was in the preceding October. And I imagine this coaster is much easier and faster to construct than the complicated mess of supports and obstacles that WCR involved.

Also, 20 coasters is a huge milestone! And they beat Energylandia! lol (for now)

If you remember for GL, once inside the building there was a relatively (for SF, anyway) elaborate scene.  And I seem to recall a lantern statue in a second room.  After that, admittedly, it was just walls... but there was/is an opportunity for a bit of a theme or scene inside.
