I'd only go if I were planning on hitting the park this weekend anyway (I'm not). I certainly wouldn't plan a trip around this unless I lived close. Too many varitables, weather, crowds, unpredictable "new" ride. Could be great, could also be a mess.

 

I just hope next month, TPR has the ride to ourselves!

The Coaster Guy Reported today 2/16/11:

JB's Smokehouse Barbeque Coming To Six Flags Magic Mountain

In 2010, Six Flags Magic Mountain opened up a new restaurant called Longhorn's BBQ. It was actually a second location for a local restaurant that was located in Castaic, CA. It was located in the restaurant building just in front of The Riddler's Revenge, the former home of Eduardo's Grill. I personally never had the chance to eat there, but I heard very good things about it. They had an open smoker they would setup just outside the building and smoke the meat on. The smells were delicious and radiated throughout the area. Unfortunately, Longhorn's went away just about the same time that Six Flags had announced that they were pulling the plug on several licensing deals, but the two events were unrelated. Longhorn's had simply fallen prey to the economy. Here is a notice that they had posted on their website:

We unfortunately have become the latest casualty of the bad economy we have all been facing for the last several years. Although we thought we had left the worst behind us we were unable to reach a workable rent with the landlord.

 

We want to thank all of you who came out to support us and rang the bell with gusto. We truly enjoyed serving you and letting you guys become familiar with the way we do things down Texas way.

 

The Longhorn's BBQ branding has been removed from the building, and you can now see the previous Eduardo's Grill name. Here is how the building sits today:

If you walk up to the doors today, you will now see this sign:

JB's Smokehouse Barbeque was a new restaurant for Six Flags that was supposed to be introduced in two parks in 2010: Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags Great America. It only opened at Six Flags Over Texas but it was such a huge success that Six Flags decided to roll it out at other parks for 2011. Fortunately for us, it looks like Six Flags Magic Mountain will be one of those parks.

 

According to the Six Flags Over Texas website, JB's Smokehouse Barbeque offers BBQ sandwiches, burgers, turkey legs, chicken strips, fries, salads, and drinks. It's unclear what the "Blues" refers to in the above sign, but it's probably safe to assume it's the type of music they play. The press release that Six Flags put out last year announcing the debut of JB's said they wanted more than just a restaurant. They also wanted to make it more of a show, so they use outside smokers that allow the guests to watch the meat being prepared. An added bonus, as we already know from Longhorn's BBQ at Magic Mountain, is that the BBQ smell wafts throughout the area, making people hungry and wanting to eat there. I don't know about you, but my mouth is already watering. I can't wait to try it out this summer.

QFT..

 

I don't have my 2011 pass yet because I'm applying part of my WCB ticket toward the price (this was discussed in the WCB thread, right? Or did I interpret that wrong?). Either way, I'm getting a pass while I'm there for WCB.

 

But yeah.. Based on the FB post, I'm guessing it's going to be packed - it does say first come, first served. And anyone can be a SFMM FB friend - it just takes a print-out that can be passed out to many other people.

 

As someone else said, I'll enjoy the ride with other enthusiasts.. not the GP.

To the best of my knowledge WCB is a seperate ticket event --- kinda like Haunt. Even if you have a pass you have to pay for a ticket, so I don't believe you can apply your WCB admission price to a season pass.

 

**edit** I went through the entire FAQ's on the WCB flyer and the very last question says that the parks have allowed it in the past but have not confirmed for this year. So good luck hope it works out!**

 

I am now deciding if I should take my Xtreme Pass email to the park on those days instead of going to WCB and save myself $50. The ERT on S:EFK was what I was looking forward to most, and if I get to get my fix a whole month earlier I just might do it.

 

BTW, has anyone seen the right side of S:EFK running with the backwards car? I haven't heard anything, and I'm assuming if they're now letting riders on everything must be going smoothly.

I have applied my WCB ticket to a Season Pass the past two years with no problem. As was said, this hasn't been confirmed for this year yet.

 

 

As long as you're inside the park, you can get a season pass at a discounted rate ($45 bucks i believe). Normally not a great discount but with the case of WCB since you must have a separate ticket it does work out in your favor. Thats because when you enter the park you no longer have proof of admission, as they take your ticket from you (At least when you print tickets at home).

 

Basically they don't know if you entered the park with an regularly priced admission ticket or a WCB ticket.

I figure it's worth a shot, even to save $15. The price of WCB is quite a bargain.. so even having to pay for my 2011 pass out-of-pocket is fine by me. But still, since my hours at work have been cut, every little bit helps.

Anyone have any experience of going to a job fair, while its raining?

 

I'm thinking about going this Saturday, and I'm now seeing reports that it is expected to rain on Saturday. I still want to go, as opposed to Sunday where it'll be sunny. I figure, people are going to be deterred by the rain.

 

What might I miss out on going Saturday as opposed to Sunday? I did want to look around and see interesting things from each of the departments...but with the rain, I'm more in a get in and get out mode, I wonder if they'd even have as many things laid out and stuff for our viewing.

Hopefully not. The last thing they need is a slip up. I'm heading up Sunday for a normal trip around the park. I'm assuming it will be like a bit busier Sunday, possibly tame® Saturday, but with all the passholders crowding around Superman. Any guesses?

Excuse my ignorance, but where is Will Call? Is it located near the l.o.ck.er.s?

 

After you go through the metal detectors, look straight ahead at the giant digital clock. The Will Call window is just to the right of it.

Before they used to require a ticket stub to upgrade to a pass.. but now with Print at home tickets you don't get a ticket stub anymore. About a year ago i was able to buy a season pass at the gift store inside Six Flags and even received discount on my purchases at the same time

 

 

As long as you're inside the park, you can get a season pass at a discounted rate ($45 bucks i believe).

Whenever I renew my pass, I go straight to Will Call and pay there because I've tried to pay at the processing center itself and they always tell me that I have to go to Will Call first. So one time a few years ago, I went there to renew my pass and get one for Diana, they only charged me the upgrade fee ($20 I think) for her pass. And it wasn't a renewal for her.

If anybody is interested in doing the filming for Superman commercials, SFMM just posted info on their FB page:

 

On Thursday, February 24th we are filming the Superman: Escape from Krypton commercial and need riders. Riders must be available for the entire day (8:00am – 4:30pm). Riders will be paid $50 at the completion of the day. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

All riders must be 18 and over and must meet all safety requirements of the ride. Proof of age may be required. This shoot is does not fall under the jurisdiction of SAG or AFTRA so union members may not participate.

 

If interested please send your name, address, e-mail and phone number along with a current photo of yourself to sfmmevents@sixflags.com.

Due to the possibility of rain the shoot may be moved to the following week. Please let us know if you are available any of those days as well. You will receive a response from the filming supervisor to confirm.
