The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

Recommended Posts

I got a real soft spot for the Supes, seeing as how it was such a landmark attraction back in the day, so I'm really glad SFMM is pimping it out and giving it a second lease on life.

 

That Zac Spin thing, though,... it scares me...

So today in Algebra we had this worksheet and one of the questions was like-

"ROLLER COASTERS One of the world's fastest roller coasters is located in a theme park in Valencia, California. Riders go from 0 to 100 miles per hour in 7 seconds. Find the acceleration blahblahblahblah."

Anyhow, just reading that made me have a major nerdgasm and I figured I'd share. Awesome to hear that not only is Superman getting some love, but the fact that they're also adding that epic little ZacSpin.

I still find it funny that everyone was bashing me last month for saying that SFMM ws getting a ZacSpin

 

I can still say this: I. Told. You. So.

 

(note: not trying to brag, just trying to prove the point that mindless bashing isn't always correct, especially when the person is correct)

Lucky guesses will do that.

On the subject of Riddler's Revenge & Green Lantern being the same color...

 

Why don't they repaint Riddler Green and Purple? Doesn't the Riddler have a green suit with a purple mask?

You are correct. I think that would look pretty rad but I can't see SFMM doing that, although I wish they would!

You know, if its not a name, its a paint job. I know you guys aren't flaming the paint job like people are flaming Cheetah Hunt, but I don't think the GP is that dumb enough to think Green Lantern and Riddler's Revenge are the same coaster based on the paint.

 

I don't mean to complain about it or anything, but come on. Both look cool in green and black.

^ I'm really surprised at the all the disappointment towards Superman: Escape From Krypton. Getting the chance to ride Superman backwards has been a fanboy dream for as long as I could remember (The first time I rode it, I thought how neat it would be to ride reverse,) and now that the dream is finally coming true people seem unexcited.

 

As for the Zacspin... I never thought this ride would ever end up on U.S. soil and now that it has, I feel like SFMM is bringing two big fanboy dreams to life! So thank you Six Flags!

^The cars can spin freely and the crazinesses is really determined by the weight distribution in each car.

Exactly...one of the flaws of the ZacSpin is basically that if you end up with too good of weight distribution you may end up with a slightly tamer ride. I will say though that this is only a slight flaw as I don't think I had a bad ride on INSANE, but the other model Zac Spin I did get a few "meh" rides on where it didn't spin at all.

 

It's entirely possible that you'll wait two hours in line...and get a crappy ride...whereas the guy behind you in line will get an OMFGWTFOMFG ride on it. But really, that's kind of the same thing that goes for any spinning coaster.

The ZacSpin has always been a curious type of coaster to me. Never in a million years did I think that one would end up at SFMM. But even though it's a fairly short ride and most people will have to wait an eternity to ride it, I'm glad that I'll get such a chance. It would have been nice to see SFMM get a customized---and somewhat longer---version, but this one will be fine.

 

And as someone said previously, I'm glad to see SFMM working with Intamin again. Perhaps that will pay off with another coaster in the future.

EDIT: Notice that the new Superman cars have a pair of smaller wheels at each corner of the car instead of the giant wheels the old cars had. I wonder how well the smaller wheels will hold up...

So now we know what's coming for 2011. And none of it apparently involves Deja Vu, so I'm wondering why it's going to be closed till next spring? Surely some rehab/maintenance, but would it need to be closed that long?
