Tells someone to keep politics out of it. Procedes to add politics. Typical 😄   As for SFMM, they're going to follow what is required by the state... At least on paper. So your sho

Swung by the park for a few hours to see how things would be in the covid world, and I have to say that magic mountain did a pretty good job. For those wondering, it appears the only checks for r

Anybody notice the new music video loop in some of the ride queues?

 

Well, when we were waiting for Tatsu for ERT they had that song "Pumped up Kicks" on.

 

There is a line in the song that goes:

"All the other kids with the pumped up kicks,

You better run, better run, outrun my gun."

 

The park actually cut out the word "Gun" in the video. I mean, I know SFMM has had gang problems in the past, but is hearing the word "Gun" really going to cause another riot? It's not like TLC is ever going to play in the park again.

 

It's just a radio edit that some stations use. We have two pop stations in GR, one allows gun, one doesn't.

By the way, did anyone else run into Bonnie Rabjohn on Saturday? My friends and I did, and she was beyond nice (if a little shy).

 

She asked us if we were having a good time, and actually apologized for the "dead" areas of the park. She said the park was undergoing a transitional period, with a lots of projects going on at the same time. She had a few people with her, and they seemed to be stopping and looking at everything.

 

I wish she would participate in the Q&A with Tim and Neal, but I get that it may not be her thing like Jay.

 

Wow the "ice princess" spoke to some coaster freaks - that's a first. She normally doesn't even speak to any employees or male managers either. IMO she is a horrible president - just the polar opposite of Jay!

I was at the mountain today, and it was a good day for rides. I was on the first train dispatched for Tatsu all by myself in the front row. I couldn't believe they sent a train with only me on it! Who says they don't care about their customers.

 

I didn't see much progress since Monday on the Superman tower, or (I'm guessing) the new 2013 ride. The old Log Jammer area is cleared out / graded, and they've put plastic on the slope away from the Goldrusher track.

 

I did notice several "I beams" off to the side of "Pocky's" lift hill. They not very large, but they weren't there on Monday. Maybe some "pieces parts" for Lex?The Jet Stream boats are near these I beams. I also saw some new steel platform pieces within Riddler on the asphalt.

 

Lastly, the construction wall for Lex now has pictures of the ride on it. Looks good...

^ It wasn't too bad for a Saturday. Got to get your rides in early. I then came back for an hour at closing. Sundays are normally good. I'll be there for my last day here, then home to South Florida.

This is true with most six flags parks. SFGAdv videos say gun in the line for green lantern, while walking around the park it's cut out.

2013 - New Coaster - (2/27/12) Screamscape sources who attended West Coast Bash came back with a little info about what The Mountain has in store for the old Log Jammer site. For starters… it wont be an AquaTrax. (LOL!) It will be big enough that I’m hearing that the park may have to make an announcement around July 4th however, and that will will break some kind of record. The removal of the old Metro monorail beamway will continue to remove it inside the old tunnel station as well. That’s said, I think it’s safe to assume that whatever this new coaster will be may put the old tunnel to use for something. Could be a queue… but if it was big enough for the Metro, it should be big enough for a coaster car to pass through, right?

Speaking of which… I wouldn’t count on seeing anything from B&M go in here. The rumored list of supplier is short, but so far my top leads have led me to believe we could be seeing some kind of new creation from Premier Rides. Premier is building the new Superman concept coaster at SFDK for 2012 after all and impressed the coaster fans at Kennywood with SkyRocket back in 2010, and has always been known for their impressive Launched coasters (Mr. Freeze is still awe inspiring BTW), just to give you an some ideas of what kind of elements could be included here.

I told him it would be a project by Premier back in September but he thought I was on crack. EDIT: I noticed I posted something about Premier on Page 2296. Edited by AnonymousReed

Announcement around the 7/4? If that is true, then it really is something big

...And SFMM's lack of airtime streak will continue it looks like. I do like Premier launch coasters though.

 

Guess I'll have to look to Knotts for some type of airtime fix in 2013...

 

Maybe, maybe not just b/c this may turn out to be a multi-launched coaster with a record breaking loop doesn't mean airtime couldn't be thrown in there too. Either way I'm getting more excited with each new update showing more land cleared b/c it's looking like this thing what ever it is will be HUGE!!!

 

Also if it's Premier that's a great thing b/c if it does have a loop and airtime we don't have to worry about OTSR's ruining the airtime since Premiers use lapbars even on their inverting coasters

I know people are saying this might be a Premier ride, but I really think it will be either Intamin or Mack. Based on Premier's history, it doesn't seem like they would be one to build a large sprawling coaster like this will likely be. I would also be surprised if it doesn't have some airtime moments in it. After all, there is a really good chance this will be the longest coaster at SFMM, and it would be great if they tried to incorporate as much as possible into the ride. Perhaps we'll get a ride with a launch through the tunnel, a giant loop, a magnetic lift with a vertical/beyond vertical drop, a bunch of airtime hills, a low to the ground twister section, and more all in one ride.
