The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

^ Totally agreed!

 

It's not only about riding rides with no lines, but knowing that everybody riding with you is also an enthusiast and just wants to have fun on the rides. One of the most fun rides I've had is on Gold Rusher with a whole train of screaming "hands in the air" freaks. Good times.

^ Jay didn't recognize us either in his speeches. I could care less if they mention us in their speeches as long as they give us a kick as event on Saturday!

 

You COULD care less?

 

I know this isn't Magic Mountain-specific, but seeing as it's in this thread, is there a specific reason for the hatred of ACE? I'm neither a member of ACE nor Club TPR (just a keen observer of the passing scene), but the vitriol towards that group is something else. Have they attacked this site? I get that they gush about every ride/park to be recognized, and that's off-putting to some, but have there been any direct attacks on this site by them? Are they, as a group, substantially more out of shape/love gravy that much more/dress way worse/uglier than, say, this group? Guessing the answer is yes - I'm just surprised at the unapologetic attacks from one group to the other (and vice versa?).

 

 

 

I'll take a stab at this from my perspective as a Club TPR member. We poke fun at ACE'rs and that is what it is - poking fun at them. If you look around this site - we poke even more fun at ourselves . Conversely - ACErs poke fun at us. I've been to events that had both TPR and ACE members and the majority of us hung out together and had a blast! There are some "hard core" ACE folks that don't like us, and that's fine with me. With any group of enthusiasts (of any sort) there are the majority of the folks there for enjoyment - then there are the "hard core" people.

 

TPR as a whole is more light-hearted and more involved with theme parks as a whole than just Roller Coasters. From what I've heard from some of our newer members - we are more welcoming to younger folks as well. What you see as vitriol, is primarily the huge streak of "smartass" that finds its home here on TPR. We poke fun at everything and are oftentimes irreverent while doing it.

 

Hope this helps.

 

To stay on topic - I really, really like the new look. I didn't get the opportunity to ride Supes in it's old configuration, but it never really interested me that much. It seemed like a cool idea - but just didn't wow me. Reversing the cars would never have occurred to me, but it seems like it would be much more thrilling facing the ground - watching it fall away, then watching yourself fall towards it.

Hey, thanks. I appreciate that. Really didn't know what the backstory was.

 

Looking forward to the usual stellar photo updates from this upcoming event.

If I remember from last year it was about 700 people who were there. So I'd say around the same, maybe more?

Why is everyone so concerned about how many tickets were sold to West Coast Bash? Why does it matter? Are you concerned about the lines during ERT? Well, don't be. You guys need to TRUST US that we wouldn't put on an event where people would have to wait in line.

 

Don't worry about how many tickets were sold. Worry about showing up to the event and having an excellent time!

According to The Coaster Guy site, the former Percy’s Railway coaster in the renamed Thomas-free “Whistlestop Park” area, has been renamed Magic Flyer.

 

As interesting as that name sounds.... you know....

That sounds a lot better then a train full of random people going " borin... oh shit I thought our heads were gonna smack into the track." Granted that might of been me. <_>

I'm so glad to hear that. The "Coaster Enthusiast Day" factor had me a little worried.

 

Back to counting minutes...

I know you guys will see the hilarity in this!

 

Holy Crime Wave, Batman!

 

The guys in the real deputy uniforms caught a bad guy in a fake uniform driving a stolen getaway car Wednesday night at Magic Mountain.

 

Around 8 p.m., deputies from the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s station responded to a burglar alarm at the Magic Mountain sheriff’s substation near the front of the amusement park, and found a window smashed and the back door open.

 

While they were conducting their investigation, they saw a man dressed in a Magic Mountain Security uniform attempting to leave the area in a Six Flags maintenance truck. The deputies stopped him to ask him about the break-in and quickly discovered he was the suspect they were looking for.

 

Carl Banks, 27, told deputies he had stolen the uniform and the Six Flags vehicle. Deputies also learned that costumes for Batman and The Flash had been taken earlier in the day when someone broke into the park’s wardrobe department. Those costumes were found in Banks’ possession.

 

Banks is being held at the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s station in lieu of $25,000 bail. He faces felony charges of burglary and grand theft and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
