The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Deja Vu is fun, but I wouldn't particularly miss it since I rarely ride it anymore, usually because it has a long line or it's closed when I visit. Magic Mountain has enough good looping coasters where they could afford to lose a few of the less visible ones. I wouldn't care if Scream left either. I enjoy them both, but neither adds much to the park, and they're both out of the way. I doubt the public would really care either, as neither seems to enjoy much word of mouth.

 

And I imagine SFNE will just get rid of their boomerang, Flashback, at least after the first couple seasons. But the coasters are different enough where it probably wouldn't really matter either way, as long as they weren't directly adjacent.

If Deja Vu is leaving I will be sad to see my favorite Vekoma go.

 

But if it does go to SFNE I will be happy. The park really needs another "major" coaster to compliment with Bizarro and Batman. I mean after I got all the credits there those were the only two rides I re-rode.

I'm not buying this rumor. Keep in mind that I work at Six Flags Magic Mountain, occasionally run DejaVu, and know most of the people who work there, and there has NEVER been any discussion on the DejaVu's removal. Not even a peep. It's never even been mentioned, and no one around the ride acts as if it's going anywhere. I can double check and ask to make sure, but I'm not believing any of this for even a millisecond until I hear from Six Flags Magic Mountain.

I'm pretty sure it's a VERY recent final decision considering a PR person from SFNE just recently decided to make the addition public. I'm sorry, but Deja Vu is as good as gone from SFMM as Iron Wolf is from SFGam. And based on what I heard from another source close to the park, this will be a VERY good thing for both parks!

If you occasionally run Deja Vu, you likely don't have access to the boardrooms & offices where the discussion to remove it is being held, if it's being held.

^Okay, this is totally off topic, but your location reminded me of it. Are all of the people in the Apocalypse pre-show park employees? Cause I'm pretty sure that when I went in June, I watched the pre-show, and saw one of the main actors operating the ride.

LOL, well I think , if SFMM really did removed Deja Vu, all the Cedar freaks (not you guys, the other majorly highly over-the-top freaks) will be like " HAH!! IN YOUR FACE SFMM !!!!! CEDAR POINT IS THE BEST !! IN YOUR FACE" and stuff.. And then probably 6 months or so , i'll see a topic , "Busch Gradens Tampa Removing their B&M Dive?!" And im like... what the hell.

Lastest news from screamscape :

 

1.Six Flags New England

New Coaster / Deja Vu - Rumor - (8/17/11) The local media has confirmed that Déjà Vu from Six Flags Magic Mountain will be moved to Six Flags New England for the 2012 season. The coaster will go into the Ship Wreck Falls site, but the final details wont be announced until Sept. 1st. (Also, nevermind the 260 foot height mentioned, Deja Vu is 200 feet tall, and will also likely have it’s name changed as well.)

 

2.Six Flags Magic Mountain

2012 - New Tower Ride - Rumor - (8/17/11) The latest buzz from Magic Mountain points a clear finger to me at the park adding a large new drop tower for the 2012. The park has been without one for a few years now, and has long been lacking a next-gen style drop tower anyway, so this should be a good fit. The only question is… who will make it? S&S, Intamin, Moser or someone else entirely? As for the location… it could fit just about anywhere in the park, since drop towers have a tiny footprint, so there is no telling until we find some survey flags.I’m hearing the announcement will also come in early September, so we wont have to wait much longer anyway.

I've always said a good place for a drop tower would be right where the "S" is when you are walking up to Superman. Would be an awesome view.

 

Of course, for that to work, it'd have to be a single tower Intamin, but I'm cool with that.

 

If they are looking to build and S&S tower, they should ask Disney where Maliboomer is now.

Deja Vu is the best Vekoma I think anyone has had the pleasure of riding on, and I like Vekoma's! When it was announced SFMM was getting La Vibora from SFOT, I was thinking of all the ground SFMM had previously cleared next to Deja Vu originally to make room for Mr. Six Dance coaster and how Tim had talked about 'evening out that back section of the park.' Of course, the now defunct picnic ground next to Bugs Bunny world would be a great spot to put it as well and as popular as it is with families in Texas, would be an excellent spot. I really, really hope they don't remove Deja as it is one of my favorite rides in the park. When I last visited the park on the 8th, the employees and I discussed its possible removal and they were devastated calling the ride their 'baby' also citing the lengthy rehab it had just undergone. I also visit Silverwood up in Idaho frequently where Aftershock, their version, always runs amazingly well. With the exceptions of the problems the one in GA had, I don't see how any park manager could want to part with this ride.

 

They're moving SFOT's bobsled coaster to SFMM?I didn't hear anything about that.

I was reading the forum on SFNEonline.org and one suggestion was that the ride would be from SFOG. He said they sold it to Brazil but it has been in Georgia for two years.

 

That is incorrect, the ride is at Mirabilania in Brazil, waiting to be assembled.

It's already assembled and opened in May of this year. The only remaining GIB in the SF chain is SFMM's. So either SFNE is receiving that one, or we are getting a brand new GIB.

A regional attraction at 1623 Main St., Six Flags currently offers amusement park-goers 10 rides. The tenth ride, Gotham City Gauntlet Escape from Arkham Asylum, was opened to the public in April.

 

Six Flags New England only has 10 rides?

 

Only 10? That's quite a lot. Knoebel's only has 2.

I am seriously disappointed the ride is being removed. This will be the first coaster "re-location" from Magic Mountain since 1988, and it couldn't a coaster that I liked more. I would rather lose Scream but I bet that's staying because of it's capacity. I don't see how they're going to get this ride to run as well as it does after it's taken apart and relocated, but I'm sure Six Flags won't care about that until it happens.

 

Hope something better than a drop tower replaces it, the capacity will be terrible, and compared to Deja Vu it will be completely lame.
