The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

now i am not happy that it is torn down or sad. I see a lot of people want rides removed, why? just dont stand in line. someone likes it.

 

That was one of the problems, nobody would ride the ride. The ride needed 14 rider to run and they had a hard time trying to get 14 riders to ride the ride.

 

i just want them to put more coasters not take away.

 

That is SFMM major problem, they have WAY too many coaster than they can handle. If the removal of the two roughest rides means park improvements I am all for it.

On Saturday 11/21, Theme Park Review was invited to see the Six Flags Magic Mountain Holiday in the Park Drive-thru Experience. It’s rare for park patrons to get to drive through a theme park, so this

There are other jobs available.  Not even close to a fair comparison.  And I’m someone who is a causality of this nonsense. The rational argument you should be making is how if the goal is to kee

I can totally be talked into driving down from Vegas to do this.  The wife loves Christmas and the fact they're letting you drive through the park instead of the parking lot makes a huge difference.

Diana and I are planning to go to SFMM tomorrow, so I'll bring my camera. If the Sky Tower is open, I'll try to get some pictures.

 

However, I'm sure there are plenty of pictures already floating around out there...

what does too many coasters mean? i dont hear anyone saying that about cedar point. i said i am not happy or sad. i dont care but i do know that there is no such thing as too many coasters and that family ride mess is silly. families ride coasters also dont u all let shapiro brainswash u all hell he doesnt want to spend the money that it takes to put another real coaster. six flags will never compete with disney no one will ever so just get the kiddies when they get too old for disney because they all do. just fix the parks and make the employess move their arses and load and run all trains at all times and that will cure the slump in business not trying to get some of disneys fame cause it is nt gonna happen. cedar point is a coaster park and it is doing well so i dont buy that adding kiddie parts to six flags parks is gonna boost business no six flgas is a rollercoaster park always has been always will be.

^ 17 roller coasters IS too many roller coasters for one park. Magic Mountain and Cedar Point both alike. Just THINK for a second about that number. SEVENTEEN. More than half of which at Magic Mountain and Cedar Point are considered large to very large.

 

It may be subjective in a way, but there really is no denying such a thing as too many roller coasters in one park. Cedar Point doesn't get criticized as much for this because they are capable of managing all 17 and keep them all open, well-staffed, and at good capacity. In addition, Cedar Point's non-coaster ride lineup adaquetely balances out the number of coasters they have to offer. The same can't be said for Magic Mountain.

According to a story done by LA DAILY NEWS (3/3/07), Magic Mountain is doing the following for 2007:

 

- Resurfacing and restriping their parking lot.

 

- Introducing a Coldstone Creamery.

 

- KODAK will be responsible for all in-park photography services.

 

- Introducing Nintendo Wii console preview/gaming area(s).

 

- Refurbishing Grand Carousel (we know this was completed recently)

 

- Removing Psyclone and Flashback (I know, I know, old news )

 

* Park spokeswoman Sue Carpenter confirmed that no Wiggles World or Thomas & Friends areas will be introduced in the park this year, but that management is working on bringing those to the park in the near future. So I think it's safe to assume what Magic Mountain will introduce in 2008.

 

* Nothing was mentioned in regards to a Johnny Rockets or Johnny Rockets Express going into Magic Mountain this year as Mark Shapiro said would happen in a live conference call to investors on 1/12/07. However, they may have not announced it yet, so this may still pull through this season.

Lets just say Colossus isn't going anywhere, or getting rid of any blocks.

 

But I agree with the thought of better flats coming in. Thats the one thing I always mention when talking about the recent Magic Mountain changes

Its funny, everyone wants the double down back. No doubt that removing the midcourse would esthetically clean up the ride, but I don’t think it really added much to the ride experience. If anything were to come back, I would want the original profiling of the ride to return. Well, at least the original double up. Oh, and new trains as well.

They might aswell return the double down. I doubt they will run three trains on a side anytime soon.

 

Overall, the ride needs a tremendous overhaul. It hurts and feels like it will just collapse any minute.

This is certainly a step in the right direction for the park.
