The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Wow! I miss the SFMM thread for a few days and all this happens.

 

I didn't know SFMM had a kennel and it was free of charge. They could totally get away with charging for it like they do for many other things, but no, they provide it as a convenience. I don't know who would bring a dog to a theme park knowing they can't take it into the park (does any park allow you to bring a dog on a leash?) unless they are traveling with a dog and are far from home and are taking advantage of SFMM's free kennel. This woman looked like an emotional wreck, she should have gone to SFMM with another human companion, perhaps a family member, who could have told her "Hell no! Bitch you gotta put that dog in the kennel." At least she gave her dog Smart Water.

 

The Sunday night ERT of DejaVu for SFMM's Facebook Fans sounds cool. If I did plan a day trip to SFMM in October (I'm thinking about it) I would do it on a Sunday. Even if DejaVu gets super crowded with Facebook fans (who knows?) at least that's one extra ride after park hours. This sounds like a proper send off for DejaVu.

I'm wondering why it is so hard for the park to make it more obvious to guests that there is a kennel on premises so they don't have to continue rescuing dogs by breaking into guests car windows? A sign at the parking entrance "Kennel available for your animals at no charge!" or a notice on the park map would make it obvious, and the problem would be gone, and they could stop breaking into guests car windows to save animals.

 

That's all I'm saying.

I wish the Pomeranian would bite off the finger you seem to love to point at everyone and everything that ever happens.

 

 

Maybe TPR needs a kennel? That's all I'm saying.

 

Or, maybe the park should not be put into a position that they have to rescue animals because people are so damn stupid. They should not have to make anything obvious to guests about a kennel...IT'S A THEMEPARK-ANIMALS DONT BELONG THERE WITH YOU! So instead of blaming the park for this and that maybe you should be on their side for saving the animal and you should be angry that idiot lady left the dog in the car in the first place.

I like how a person who posted a picture of the woman. She's holding a bottle of Smart water, I don't think it's really doing the job.

 

On other news. Still completely unsure whats going to happen with me and my VIP tickets. I don't really want to wait till next season and I would like to go to fright fest. But coordinating with both my dad (who won't even go on anything) and my friend seems to be a freaking impossibility. Plus even then I still got a extra VIP ticket and so far SF hasn't confirmed if I could split them up.

Once again, making accusations of something I didn't say. Did I blame the park for getting the dog out of the car? Not once. All I said is it would be helpful if they made it more obvious to guests that they have a *free* kennel to put pets if they happen to have some with them!

 

I didn't know SFMM had a kennel and it was free of charge.

 

No way?! You mean to tell me you DIDN'T see the big obvious kennel in the parking lot that apparently everyone else in the world is aware of?! You mean you DIDN'T go to the Six Flags site and see the information that takes 2 clicks to get to at the bottom of the page? How could you be so dumb??!?! /sarcasm

So it's not the parks fault they lost the dog?

 

Who ever said leaving the dog in the car was not the ladys fault?

 

You guys seem to be arguing points nobody made.

How ironic you would complain about someone arguing seeing how you are one of the most argumentative people on this board.

 

We welcome open discussions and for people to offer their opinion on this board but it seems you have a problem doing this without getting upset and offensive. If it seems like people are always attacking your opinion, maybe it's in the way you always present it!

 

Your posts are becoming borderline flames and you really need to consider calming down before you post. Remember, this is a board about theme parks and theme parks are fun. So, there is no reason why we can't have discussions on here that don't become flame wars.

P.S. And everyone else...Let's please move on to discussing the specific situation (or other things at the park) and not dwell on what BlueFireCoaster's posts.

In one of the articles Sue Carpenter mentioned it was against the law to leave an animal locked in a car. So does this mean the idiot lady can be charged?

 

The park is not responsible for the neglected animals left locked in cars and this got away while in their care. You know what? SO WHAT! At least the dog is still alive and if they did nothing it would be dead...is that better? If the dog was not locked in the car in the first place none of this would have happened so really ALL of this is the idiot lady's fault. I just don't get how she could be so stupid to think it would be ok to lock the dog in there. I can't wait to see if PETA is going to jump in on this.

I'll bet this lady lives in Beverly Hills, drives a bunch of fancy cars, doesn't work because she lives off of the money her husband makes, and obviously that is not her real hair color!

 

Yep, typical total faker southern Californian loser lady. What was she doing at the park anyway? Was she meeting somebody or just going alone, something is missing here.

In California, Animal Control officers can now (as of 2007) break into locked cars with an animal in them. The owners face $500 in fines and 6 months in jail. This is Senate Bill 1806

In all fairness to Six Flags though, I don't have a pet dog, but if I did I would be on the lookout for kennels at various places and probably would have spotted it (though I wouldn't bring a dog to a theme park).

To be honest, the kennel isn't in as blatant of a spot as everyone's portraying it to be. It's off to the very side of the parking lot away from where everyone drives in. If someone did a little research online or asked guest services, I'm sure the person could figure out that they do have a kennel, but it's in now way obvious that the park has a kennel. The kennel also looks like a redneck bar simply named "The Dog Pound," so there's that, too.

The dog has been reunited with the 'owner.'

 

Most of that story is the same as the previous one, except for a couple of gems. 1, they fixed the spelling of LOSE. 2, she refers to the dog as her daughter in the last sentence.

 

STORY: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2011/09/12/woman-upset-with-six-flags-security-for-rescuing-dog-from-hot-car-and-then-losing-it/

 

UPDATE 9/13 11:45 p.m.: The dog’s owner has notified CBS2 via Twitter that her dog was returned Tuesday after the people who found Malibu saw our TV report.

 

VALENCIA (CBS) — A woman is upset with a Southern California amusement park for taking her support dog from her car and then losing her.

 

Shelanon Brooks says her dog, “Malibu,” was prescribed by her doctor for emotional support, but now the distraught young woman is placing “Lost Dog” ads up in hopes that someone might find Malibu after the dog apparently was lost by Six Flags officials.

 

A Six Flags Magic Mountain spokesperson insists they were rescuing Brook’s pet from a sweltering car. They placed the 1-year-old Pomeranian in the park’s dog kennel, where it escaped while an employee was filling the pooch’s water bowl.

“I really love my dog and I wouldn’t let anything happen to her,” Brooks sobbed. “I thought she was OK, I thought she was OK. And I keep thinking what I could have did different.”

 

Brooks was going to take Malibu into the park with her, but the bag she used to carry the dog had just ripped. She said she decided to leave him in the car with the windows rolled down, a dish with food, and a tupperware filled with water.

 

Security discovered the dog inside the car and that it was visibly “distressed.”

 

The temperature that day was in the 80s.

 

“Our security personnel and the sheriff saw the dog, which they thought was dead,” according to Six Flags spokesperson Sue Carpenter.

 

“[They] broke into the car to get the dog out. We brought it over here to the dog kennel, revived it, gave it some water and cooled it down,” Carpenter said.

 

The kennel door was left open while the dog’s water was being replenished and Malibu ran out the front door and into the parking lot.

 

 

(credit: CBS)

Six Flags officials say it’s standard policy to rescue dogs from cars. They say they aren’t responsible for the pet while it’s in their care.

 

“We do in-park announcements and we leave messages on your windshield to let you know where your animal is, and that no animal should be left in the car — that’s the law,” Carpenter said.

 

Brooks said she’s upset and doesn’t believe she was putting Malibu in danger. She just wants her beloved pet back.

 

“I don’t know how I’m going to go back without my daughter,” Brooks said. “I don’t know how I’m going to live in my house without her — I just don’t.”

Doesn't believe she was putting the animal in danger? Ok, so the next time she does this, and she will, and the dog dies then what? So now that she has admitted to animal cruelty when will she be fined/charged? This is just so outrageous because she is just so oblivious to the danger she put her dog in! Come on PETA, do something!

Again...but you knew how you could spend an entire day in the park without her, while she was roasting to death in your hot car in the parking lot?

He was being sarcastic. Its a moot point now anyway as this lady has been reunited with her dog.

Just looked over the SFMM Fright Fest site, and I think it's awesome that they're doing the Foggy Nights thing on Batman! It was awesome before, I can't imagine now!

 

I've never made a trip to SFMM just for Fright Fest, but I think this year I'll have to give it a try, just for Batman and the coasters in the dark.
