lol. Nice proofreading on the news release.

Also in addition to the pay per ride, it looks like SFMM is the first to launch the new pass levels, though I'd imagine it should go in the main Six Flags corporate thread as I'm assuming it will be rolling out to more parks soon.

Now the employees will have to deal with legacy memberships which they are discontinuing for new purchases, and 3 more tiers of season passes completely separate from gold+, platinum, diamond, diamond elite, diamond elite VIP..... meaning there are now technically 9 different pass levels for SFMM...

The new pass levels are not very budget friendly, and the perks are much lower for higher cost. Also gone are the days of unlimited meal visits throughout the year. The payment plan is only good on the two highest passes and it's only 4 payments max.

all I have to say is that I really hope they are honoring dining plans already purchased on folks passes/memberships.

 

I suspect they will.. . but how messy.

So if one has a Six Flags season pass/membership from another park that guarantees admission to all Six Flags parks, do the SFMM blackout days apply to them?

This is going to piss a lot of current members off.

I fail to see why the blackout dates would apply to those passholders/members, since only the basic level pass at SFMM has blackout dates, and the basic level pass/membership at other parks does not grant admission to all SF parks.  Effectively, the holder of a pass/membership at another park would be the equivalent of the higher levels of pass at SFMM, thus no blackout dates.

I think it's also worth noting that the only blackout dates at SFMM are the Fright Fest Saturdays.  Many chains' "basic level" pass doesn't include admission to their Halloween events at all.

Swung by the park since I was in the area to golf…not really anything to report except tastu is still being painted and the former riddlers courtyard entrance has a lot of footers which you can see through the very ripped up scrim on the fence.0AE53C9A-D43A-443F-9B75-C02830703799.thumb.jpeg.51a9e1d7c2a086799b7c077b5115ec29.jpegD75C2BE7-606D-4EA9-8FE2-04ED551B3FD5.thumb.jpeg.90f0ebe26a051486af61c925a2fcb0fb.jpeg

First visit to the park this past Friday after being teased by RCT2 since 2003; generally was very impressed with the park, but was sad to see X2 closed due to inclement weather, which I’m assuming was high wind. That just hurt because I’d seen it testing as I pulled up :(

 

Tatsu still being repainted hurt too cuz all I could do was stare at it, but I just have a reason to go back a second time really soon. I managed to do all other major coasters between 10:30 am and 3:00 pm, which was far quicker than expected especially with mostly 1-train ops. 
 

P.s. Superman is back to running the forward side, backwards was closed when I visited but I didn’t bother asking why or about Lex Luthor.

So my partner and I are planning a Southern California trip over our Spring Break (March 12th-20th). We will be in LA Saturday the 12th through Monday the 14th before traveling to San Diego. We're midwest based so I know my around seasonal parks... but I'm feeling a little lost with crowds and ops at the year round parks. We want to hit MM and Knott's. 

We'll give a full day to each park, but we have the option of going in any combination Saturday, Sunday, or Monday. I assume Sunday and Monday are best for crowds, but what about staffing? I realize missing credits is likely on any day, but is it more likely for a major ride to be down on a weekday due to staffing issues or because crowds are lighter? We're willing to do flash pass on a busy day, especially if it means we're less likely to encounter down coasters and the resulting longing stares :p.

I'm not sure about Magic Mountain, but Knott's is kind of unbearable most Saturdays so I would avoid.  Fastlane passes will help with rides, but there are long and slow lines for everything else.  One thing to consider though is that Knott's has been offering significantly longer hours than MM. 

MM will probably be dead for crowds on Monday, but will also only be open for 6.5 hours.   Even with light crowds, that doesn't leave you a lot of time to experience everything.  If you only care about coasters, I would say... take Saturday for yourself, then do Six Flags on Sunday (traffic will also be way better), and Knott's on Monday.

^Was in the park today... no noticeable movement on Lex.  Tatsu is getting there, but not sure when it'll be completely finished.  Superman was up today, but only forwards side.

And FYI, at the very moment, the walkway between Tatsu and WCR/Apocalypse is closed due to painting.

The new bathrooms going up behind the Flashpass office already have walls up.

I'm planning on visiting the park in week or so. I know that DC Universe, Tatsu, and Lex Luthor are all closed. Are there any other rides or park sections that have been down or closed off? Also, are there any rides at Knott's that are closed because we are thinking about hitting that too? Thanks

This is fun! Six Flags Magic Mountain released a full view of the layout of Wonder Woman: Flight of Courage. It looks like the new additions to the layout are another off-axis airtime hill and an overbanked curve into the brake run. Another thing to note: doesn't it look like the queue building is being expanded upon? 

Either way, I'm very excited for this addition and its marvelous to see Magic Mountain getting another ride that has a large amount of airtime. I loved Jersey Devil and I can only imagine that this version will be just as good if not better.

Just FYI for those going soon, the walkway opens and closes throughout the day, as I have seen it closed it the morning, open in afternoon, closed again, and opened again in the same day. all depends if they are going back to finish the top of the lift or not.

Anyone have any idea of Wonder Woman will offer a Single Rider line?  Does Jersey Devil?

No idea on Wonder Woman, but Jersey Devil does not have a single rider line.

Why would a ride where everyone is a single rider have a single rider line? 🤣

Because you have groups of people that want to ride together in the same train and sometimes that leaves empty seats.  Pretty sure that WW at SFFT had a single rider line, not sure if they still do.

Had.. they removed it because people were taking advantage, so what was Single Rider became Flash Pass line only.

there is a grouper at the front of the main station on busy days now, and they use the grouper to try and fill up every seat in the train.

 

 

(which I have been told is the same way they will be handling the odd seating for Dr. Diabolical Cliffhanger (7 across). . no single rider line, but with a grouper to fill all seats)

Jersey Devil generally has a grouper at the entrance to the station who is directing guests into each seat while the train is moving. When there is an extra seat or two in the rear of the train (due to what you are describing) they'll yell out for a single rider from the standby queue and its usually filled quickly and without issue. Maybe SFMM will design the queue to have an additional single rider line but JDC is not set up that way and it feels like it would be pretty pointless given the set up/procedure they have in place which seems to work out fine when this scenario pops up.

I was far too lazy to make the effort to actually go into the park on a weekend and deal with people, so here’s the birdseye quick update:
