The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

I know everyone was busy having what sounded like an amazing WCB at SFMM but did anyone happen to take a peek at the Green Lantern site? Is it still just the footers, have they started any vertical construction or are parts on site?

 

I don't know how much it would cost but I wish they would leave B:TR smoke and lighting effects those pics of it from WB look awesome.

WCB was awesome! I drove down from Sacramento on Friday night (where it was in a torrential downpour) to find that the weather was perfect for the event. I have to say I love Magic Mountain, well maybe not the mountain part as my legs are still sore. I brought along a few coaster noobs so they could see what a real coaster park was all about. Morning ERT was awesome, although I wish there was a little more time. Goliath was the highlight for most of my friends except for Shawn who fell in love with X2. The Q & A was a highlight as well, and I have to note a few things. I agree Gold Rusher could use a dose of indoor dark ride elements, tunnels, and fire. I hope everyone caught the silence on the drop tower and 2012 questions. Apparently Apocalypse was meant for those who have just graduated from The Loony Toons kids area but aren't mature enough to ride the bigger coasters (thanks Smurfs), and honestly everything else will seem trivial when Road Runner is changed to "backwards" Road Runner (that is if Tim can get it "erected" in time) and of course fire is added. To give you an idea of why these events are worth every penny let me share with you my experience of the day. At 1pm my friends and I entered the line for Apocalypse and waited 2.5 hours to get on the ride due to 1 train and crowds. From 9pm to 11:30 (same time frame) my coaster count went like this: Superman 2x, Batman 3x, Scream 2x, Goliath 3x, Tatsu 3x, Apocalypse 4x, and 3 rides in on X2. Thank you Six Flags for a wonderful event! I don't care if you make a small profit off of me, it was worth every cent and I'll be back next year!

Batman: The Foggy Knight

Fog, lights, and then they made it rain as well.

The new soundtrack was hilarious, but we need more volume.

Can someone please help me out. I am looking at an Amtrak trip to Santa Clarita-from San Jose,CA which I would have to go on 2 Amtrak busses & 1 train & end up at this Amtrak bus station: 24300 Railroad Avenue, Santa Clarita. Does anyone know how far that station is from SFMM? & What transportation do you recommend getting from that station to SFMM? & Is the Hilton Garden Inn the only hotel within walking distance of SFMM?

I could go on and on about what a great time I had at the SFMM day of WCB, but most, if not all, of what I could say has already been posted. That said, THANK YOU SFMM and TPR for another epic event. My personal highlight of the event was Batman with the fog and lights. It was awesome to ride and to just look at. As cool as it was right near the ride itself, it looked great from Riddler's lift hill as well. I really do hope this becomes a permanent part of WCB and/or the FrightFest lineup.

 

 

My son, Kevin, is pretty good at putting videos together. He took quite a few pictures and a lot of video during both days of WCB and he's either going to register on TPR and coastertube himself and post up his video when it's done, or I'll link it up in a future post.

 

Thank you again Robb, Elissa, all the TPR ASSistants, and SFMM for making our day simply unforgettable.

You can take the bus to the park.

Bus 1&2, 4&14 to McBean Transit Center. Then Take the 3 or 7 bus to the park.

 

 

And Hilton Garden Inn is a 10-15min walk from the park as is Holliday Inn Express and Best Western.

1st - Welcome to TPR

2nd - While no one can predict the crowds, we can speak from experience. It'll be decently crowded due to some schools being out for Spring Break already. I would invest in a Flash Pass if you're pressed for time and/or have little patience. If you aren't pressed for time and/or don't want to invest in a Flash Pass then my advice would be to arrive at the park at approximately 9:30am so that you can be at the gate when they open.

My route whenever I go to the park is as follows: X2, Tatsu, Deja Vu, Termipocalypse, Riddler's, Batman, Goliath, Scream. Add in S:EFK between X2 and Tatsu or between Tatsu and Deja Vu. Once I've done that I add in Ninja, Goldrusher, Viper, any water attractions etc.....Yes, I'm aware that my method will require a little back tracking but the 1st 4 attractions I mentioned will have the longest lines especially if Tatsu is still running 1 train. (It shouldn't, but plan like it will be)

Hope this helps. We will expect to see some pictures when you return from your visit

hi everyone this is my first post.

one question.

i'm planning a trip to SFMM on April 9th , i'm wondering which rides will be open, and how crowded will be?

it's a saturday by the way.

 

tnks

 

If you are not able to get there at opening, take the backwards route - Goliath, Riddler, Batman, Apocalypse, etc. Then back over to Scream/Colossus whenever (they don't ever get too busy.

 

Then, head back toward the front for X2, Tatsu, Viper, and Revolution.

 

At 10:30, almost everyone will head toward X2 or Tatsu - like the running of the bulls - seriously!

 

When I got off of X2 at 10:35 after WCB, the line was down the bridge (a few hours long), and people were all breathing hard. They ran from the front gate..

 

Yeah.

^^^ Overall, I recommend bits of what the guy before me said. Sometimes I arrive at the front gate at about 10:40am-ish. By then, that's way too late to go to X2 first and if you do go to X2 first anyway, that's a stupid decision, because you could spend this precious time riding and getting in rides with no lines elsewhere.

 

 

If you enter the park around 10:40ish or later, go to Goliath first and ride the rides in the particular order... i.e., Goliath, Scream!, Colosus, Batman, Riddler's, so on so forth.

 

If you get to the park early, then I guess going to X2 is good. I personally never get to the park early, to be one of the first people in the gate.

If i were to though, and perhaps if I was on one of the first trains dispatched on X2 then I would be all for it and think everyone else should do that as well.

 

For my strategy, I always skip X2 and head to Tatsu first. (All the crowd thinks you're supposed to ride X2 first and so they all go in mass numbers to that ride. Me, meanwhile, I just ride Tatsu twice, then get two rides in of Terminator (Apoc) and two rides of Deja Vu. Then I head over to Superman, now SEFK and get a ride in with that. Then Ninja. Then back down the hill to Goldrusher. From there Riddler's and maybe Tidal Wave. From there, Batman: The Ride, and then Scream! and Colosus. Lastly, Goliath. Then I take a break.

 

Worry about X2, Revolution, Viper, and water rides later on in the day. Revolution's line will become nonexistant and so will Vipers, in my experience. And X2's line will probably be shorter than what it was at say 10:50 am-ish anyway.

 

Just my experience of course.

lol.. Imagine my surprise on my first visit to SFMM last June. I was just figuring that everyone would power walk to it thinking running wouldn't be allowed so I thought I would be fine. As the gate opened I realized people started to jog and go quicker so I had to either redo my plan in my head or run. I decided to run and ended up on the first train of the day, but the ride op was laughing his butt of at me since I was so out of breath.

As we went up the hill you could clearly see the raindrops flying down at 100+ mph (yes science geeks I know the drops aren't going 100, but you know what I mean), and then it looked like something from the Matrix. The raindrops very slowly stopped falling until they were dead stopped in front of your for a split second. Then, they very slowly reversed direction and started slamming into your face at reverse speed.

 

Best description of S:EFK in the rain. We got one of the last rides before they closed it down due to rain. The ride ran amazing. I just remember being up there weightless and everything seemed to pause. It was a really cool experience. Now I wanna try 104mph forward. Thankyou so much for putting together this awesome event. It was A LOT of fun.

So at WCB, Tim Burkhart said that he rode the New Texas Giant, and he loved it. He also said that he would like to try to apply this onto Colossus, with some original style. He made it sound like it could definitely be a possibility. That was one of the highlights of the Q&A this year.

^He said he had some ideas in store for colossus. Also, I asked If we'd ever see a drop tower at SFMM anytime soon. Tim and Neal just looked at eachother with a suprised expression, and tim grabbed another question card and never answered my Q. Probably because they weren't aloud to answer that question... hmmmm....

Wow tnks for the tips.

i´ll be riding with an almost first timer... ("almost" because she went like 9 years ago and some of the rides didn´t exist at the time) so i think my first choice will be the viper then apocalypse, deja vu, riddlers, batman, tatsu (and maybe SEFK), X2, Scream, goliath... i hope to manage to ride those...

 

for me the viper it´s a must first, i just love viper...

 

i have no idea at what time i´m going to arrive, because i´m leaving at 6 am from tijuana and it depends on the traffic in the border and LA.

yep im from tijuana mexico... so excuse me if i have a bad english...
