The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

If I recall from reading past WCB events, usually most of the roller coaster riding is done at morning or evening ERT.

 

Get there early and get your rides in, when the park opens go to breakfast. During park operating hours TPR has plenty of activities to do like scavenger hunts, Q&A sessions, backstage tours, lunch, etc. while all the regular guests are dealing with crowds and waiting in lines.

 

Then once the night comes, the crowds thin out, night ERT begins and you get to go on anything you want that you didn't go on in the morning!

So true. One thing though, the free breakfast usually ends by the time the park opens to the public. But between AM and PM ERT you can get all the coasters in, many times, from different seats and then when the GP is there hit all the flat rides, water rides, TPR events, etc... And right after the park opens to the GP the back of the park (Riddler, Batman, Scream) are still pretty empty. GoldRusher, Colossus, and Revolution are short lines or walk-ons almost anytime.

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

I still have my piece of Apocalypse from WCB 2009.

No, you have a piece of Terminator! (I still have my piece, too.)

 

It looks like I'm going to miss the entire weekend. But for all of you who do go, you're going to have a great time as I did every time I've been. If you haven't already, SIGN UP!

Physics day has been falling on the same day as West Coast Bash since I started the event 8 years ago. It makes NO DIFFERENCE since they have a set curriculum most of the day. I would imagine the "enthusiast day" could potentially add maybe 50-100 people to the event since most of the enthusiasts would already be at the park anyways. Since Solace was postponed, I would think that number could be lower. Nothing to worry about guys...

Since ERT went until 10:30 am last year (when the gates open), I stayed toward the back of the park because it still took awhile for people to get down there. So, ERT for two hours in the morning on some good rides, then at least another half hour of line-free rides in the back of the park.

 

During the day last year, the park was busy - it was a Saturday. Luckily, with tours, lunch, presentations, etc., there was no need to ride every ride multiple times - there was still nighttime ERT.

 

If you're that concerned about 'getting the most out of your day', get a flash pass. But seriously, two ERT sessions is more than enough - you will get plenty of rides.

 

 

 

On a similar note, since Superman will be opening that day, will most people be flocking over to that ride? (Not only TPR members, but most of the general public?) Just curious.

Too bad you won't be there Eric. We never went together but seemed to meet each time. And yeah, I have two pieces of Terminator, one of them signed by Jay, Neil, and Tim.

^ Possibly.

 

But I'm also thinking it's a vinyl wrap.

 

As a FB comment suggested, the red train looks like someone shot it with a paintball gun.

 

I do like the 'S' logo, though.

Yeah I'm really liking the blue train the red is just a little to busy for my taste,no big deal though.

 

"Maybe the kiddie coaster is actually giant piles of dirt covered with plastic sheets for children to slide down!"

 

Skycoastin Steve you just ruined one of the surprises that was going to be announced at WCB

Even down here in Orange County the temperatures have been quite chilly the past week from about 4pm until 9am (when the sun starts to go down until its up again) and when the wind picks up even at noon you can feel the cool crisp air from the North.

 

I actually like what they did with the trains. I kinda wish they both had the S like the blue car, but at least they're being original. Man I wish I coulda gone to the commercial shoot today! Does anybody know the people that got in?

No.. But here is the email response I received:

 

Thank you for interest to be a part of the Superman: Escape from Krypton commercial filming. There has been an overwhelming response and we are currently full.

We will be shooting Green Lantern: First Flight sometime in May and we look forward to inviting our fans to participate in that shoot as well.

Thank you again.

Oh well..

Ugh, I wish I could get down there for the GL filming, let along be able to ride it when it opens, darn it!

 

I was reading the last few pages and I don't understand the negativity/complaining about WCB... I have never been to one of these events but from what I've read on here they sound totally amazing and I'm sure everyone involved in setting it up puts in a lot of work to make things right, and a lot of fun! I look forward to going to one in the future. Every single TR I have seen on here about an event like this gives the impression that people had an incredible time at the event. So I guess what I'm saying is those that are hating on this need to shut the fu*k up about it, if you don't want to have a super-awesome-amazingly-fun time then don't go and don't complain.

 

 

And like someone said earlier about the red car, I too think that is a vinyl overlay, it just looks too goofy for the ride. But if it's not and that is the paint on it, then having the cars different colors like this would be cool.
