The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

Recommended Posts

^Keep in mind, DK's are family coasters. Extremely thrilling coasters generally come without as much theming. Realistically speaking, I believe an aquatrax is unlikely, as they want something thrilling. I guess it is possible for a halfway-descently themed ride, but heave theming is unlikely to happen.

 

If it is a giga, SFMM may not be the first park with both a hyper and a giga, but they would be the first park to have a hyper and a giga in close proximity to each other.

It's not a matter of whether or not they can theme a ride, its a matter of if they will.

 

The park does have five themed coasters: Green Lantern, Batman The Ride, Goliath, Apocalypse, and Superman, so they are quite capable of theming a ride, and if I recall correctly one of the higher Six Flags officials did say that theming was important and that we should start expecting new attractions to have at least some theming.

 

But of course, theming costs money, so there is no guarantee that the ride will be themed at all.

 

I would personally love a well themed coaster sitting in LJ's spot (or anywhere in the park for that matter), but I can't expect too much from Six Flags now can I?

 

^That depends. There is plenty of room next to Viper for a Giga, and they could very well remove Viper to make more room for one if they needed to/wanted to.

^When I rode it Sunday it made and my friend want off from the 2nd and 3rd loops til the brake run. I seriously couldn't wait for the ride to be over. I hope it was just a bad ride I had but its become a ride I avoid unless I have someone new visiting the park, as was the case on Sunday.

Goliath has a theme?

I suppose it does, the whole line has that "jungle" theme. Plus the sort of sand/clay look of the letters and outside area that sort of extends to the ride station.

 

^^I will half to whole-heartedly disagree, I'll take the ride with the roughness over a few other rides in the park!

^^Yeah, I was actually really surprised with the Goliath overgrown-jungle line. The theme just ended once the ride left the station...but it was there!

 

In defense of Goliath, it isn't easy to theme a hyper outside of the station... and the ride's overall awesomeness makes up for the lack of on-ride theming.

 

I am disappointed there's not tours or anything "extra" at SFMM for WCB this year, outside of the ERT and announcement/Q&A. I'm hoping for some last minute surprises! CANT WAIT for Saturday!

Viper would have to be the worst ride in the park, my left ball still hasn't drop from riding that coaster three months ago....Scrap metal sounds about right!

That's the last of the 7 inversion arrows! Keep it going for a few more seasons at least!

It's probably one of the smoothest arrows I've been on.

You need to get to Dollywood, Tennessee Tornado is a great ride. Of course I will ride Viper again at WCB this weekend!!

That award would have to go to Revolution, IMO.

If I were you, I would hope that QueerRudie doesn't see that, or you'll feel the wrath... I have Nina as my least-favorite. I like to use the term least-favorite over worst because every coaster is special.

For me...

 

Roughest: easily, by far X2. I found several of the other traditionally rough coasters smooth or acceptable: Viper (one of the magic seats), Revolution (front seat, of course), Colossus (back) and Scream. Note that this has absolutely no bearing on how much I love X2; it's still my top favorite.

 

Least favorite: Canyon Blaster by default as it's the smallest adults can ride.

 

Least favorite adult coaster: Gold Rusher. Somewhat painful, boring, no airtime. I will give it the terrain use, though; that's not something to take for granted.

Oh no. I would hate to feel the wraith of "QUEERrudie"

I generally avoid riding Viper, then again I generally avoid going to Magic Mountain in general. I have done well with avoiding it for almost 3 years too! I really should go back though, there are 3 credits there that I haven't gotten.

 

I'm also not really a fan of Revolution, Scream or X2 (yes... X2). They are just too rough and uncomfortable for me to enjoy. X2 is much better with the newer trains but still not the ride I think we had all hoped for 11 years ago.

I've only ridden it once, but so far i don't think my crotch is digging Green Lantern

 

I rode it twice (forward and backwards) and that was enough for me. I call it the "Grunt Lantern" because of the noises the riders (including myself) make.

X2 isn't bad at all if you ride defensively. (Head against headrest at all times) Scream is usually hit or miss, depending on which train you ride in. Does anyone really think Revolution is comfortable anymore? Viper, as with pretty much all Arrow mega loopers, is a ride where it is best to keep your head forward. Actually, I would consider Viper to be the least painful of the 3 American Arrow mega loopers, with the honor for the worst going to KD's Anaconda. They all have about the same amount of roughness, but Viper gets the edge over Vortex and Anaconda since the last two have more jarring transitions. On Vorex, the coat hanger onto the turn before the brakes hurts like hell, and Anaconda's helices are simply coat hanger express. Even Corkscrew at CP has a pretty brutal transition into the corkscrews.

 

Viper still holds up as one of the better Arrow loopers. However, I wouldn't be too surprised if it were removed in the next five years. It takes up a ton of space, and lines are usually about 1/4 the length of X2. Once, X2 had an hour wait, while Viper was cycling with half its seats empty on every cycle; literally a walk-on.
