The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

Recommended Posts

I really loved flying above the mountain on Tatsu - definitely an experience none of the other flyers even come close to offering. From off-ride, it really does dominate the mountain a little heavily, but oh well. I would've loved to see a giant swoop down at the end after the pretzel loop, but beggars can't be choosers!

I agree with Sir Chinksalot. The 170ft lift is misleading. The height is measured from the apex of the lift to the bottom of the midway in Rapids Camp crossing, not the apex of the lift from the station, which is in reality only 115ft. with the 124ft pretzel loop, as Sir Chinksalot has mentioned, is the only point of the ride that deviates from the rest of the ride circuit.

 

Not trying to beat a dead horse (unnecessarily mind you) But Tatsu's elevation change (and the numbers being off) has always irked me.

 

But I digress,

I would really like to see the land between X and Viper developed into something more than just tumbleweeds and air. The park owns enough of the land back there to extend a circuit all the way back to Cyclone Bay. If a Giga or Mega Lite is in the works, I'd much rather see an out-and-back type ride in that land rather than the condensed space Log Jammer's spot would offer

It always astonishes me how critical people can be even of the best rides.

 

The lift hill of Tatsu is one of the most thrilling experiences there is. And the pretzel loop is the best imo.

 

The cost of sticking Tatsu under the mountain would have prevented it being built in the first place I'm guessing.

^Another way to appreciate Tatsu's use of the terrain is to ride S:UF at GAdv. This thing was literally jammed between the midway and the parking lot, just because it fit there! While the S:UF clones are not the most thrilling rides around, if they actually expanded out of their square-shaped layouts, they would be great rides! I am just glad SFMM didn't get another Superman clone.

I have ridden all three of the S:UF ... I actually like them. I mean, not top 20 or anything, but they are fun rides.

 

As of Friday, no evident construction on Drop of Doom. Wonder if they are just going to move the cranes from Deja Vu to Doom once Vu is completely gone? Although I would have to imagine they are going to need a pretty big crane for Doom construction.

 

I also wouldn't be surprised if Goliath has some downtime during construction due to it's proximity.

^ I haven't been on it backwards yet, only forwards in 2003 so I really hope its open!

 

It is SO much better backward than it ever was forward! I hope it's open for you guys too, it's definitely a new experience you don't want to miss, the G's on the curve are so strong. The train actually hits 100 MPH now, and the looking at the ground from that high is awesome.

 

The park probably won't close Superman and get started on Lex Luther until April next year. Then it will have problems and its opening will be rushed or delayed. Oh Six Flags, don't you ever learn? /sarcasm

I think this may just be me, but since the park went to weekend only operation (and lost a lot of the seasonal staff), operations are faster, the park is cleaner and the staff is friendlier. Am I the only one that has noticed this?

 

Also the dismantle crew is almost done on deja vu. They moved fast.

I believe that would be because these people "want" to be there. They aren't the shmucks looking to collect a paycheck without effort.
