The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

I'm already impressed with the theming going into the queue for LL:DoD. The only problem is that it won't look that impressive about a month after it's open with "Oscar loves Debby" or "Max got high here" carved all over Luthor's iron suit. Let's not forget the trash that will probably be all over Lex's office that will smell like someone took a dump in there.

I know tagging was being discussed over in the SWSD thread, so I don't know if that's why you brought it up here.

I was being half serious and half sarcastic. The Batman queue smelled like crap last time I went and there was stuff carved all over the walls. It's good to know GL, after almost a year of being open, hasn't looked like that...yet.

 

On a serious note, I love the theming for the ride. It looks like something you would see at Islands of Adventure, though not quite as festive.

Ah, I'll be at SFMM the 26th and 27th! So close!

 

I'm just going to pray for a soft opening of LL:DoD and Superman. If worse comes to worst, I'll ride the Sky Tower and pretend like I'm dropping really, really fast...

Same here, I fly out the 29th. Is there really any chance at all of a soft opening?

The listed date (most likely) is the Grand Opening date. Pretty much every new Six Flags ride this year has had a Season Passholder preview day (or two) in the days leading up to the grand opening. Not guaranteeing this will be the case, but it's certainly possible...

I'm not sure how accurate the park map I got this weekend is (it says Lex Luthor will open in spring on the cover), but the paintball gallery is still listed under the games section and shop at the exit is listed as The Daily Planet Gift Shop (the description says it will have "basic necessities and an ATM for your convenience). Also listed as new is a chicken restaurant across from Apocalypse and a food location called Dogs and Snack in the What the Fried? area.

Dogs and Snack

I know it's only a restaurant, but even still, you've just gotta love that creative naming. Extra points for improper tense!

 

On-topic: Can't wait for some testing footage of LL:DOD. I know it's gonna do exactly what it says on the box (...drop and slow down) but it'll be really cool to see it in motion regardless!

Here's the scoop on "What the Fried" from our update on Friday:

 

What the Fried?:

No REALLY ... WHAT THE FRIED!?!?!

If you've been following In The Parks for awhile, you'll know about the saga of the old Johnny Rockets "Shakes and Fries" stand. Well, the saga continues this week. If you'll recall, on our last update the What the Fried sign was gone.

 

We are happy to announce the sign is back.

 

 

What's odd though, is that there is another sign on the other entrance that is for "Loaded Dogs".

And even more odd is the sign out front when approaching the eatery from the front entrance (you know, the one everybody is likely to see first) still says "Shakes and Fries" even though the location doesn't sell Shakes and Fries.

 

 

Let's hope the identity crisis for this location is resolved soon, and that we actually find it open. We are excited to try a Mango Dole Whip one of these days.

Not sure about the name, but and very curious to see the menu, and what exactly they'll be frying.

From The Coaster Guy...

 

 

I'm going to be heading over later today after the PGA golf is over (& Tiger wins) and perhaps then some sweet parking will be available in first lot as peeps from SFHH should be leaving about then. Then heading into SFMM and perhaps eat the left side of the menu ... going to be a great day.

The western or LA dog looks good, and I never had a deep fried snickers bar yet.

 

Right now I plan on going to SFMM to finally use my VIP passes a week or two after the tower drop opens. Talked it over with SF before and they said it's fine if I split them 2 each among me and a friend. Now that I can finally drive (permit, for now.) me and him can take turns driving down I-5 to the park which isn't hard at all. Practically a straight, boring highway.

Does a learner's permit allow you to drive on the freeway? It didn't back when I had mine, but that was LONG time ago.

 

Nevermind, it's MOTORCYCLE permit that doesn't allow you to go on the freeway. See? I told you I was old. I forget nearly everything these days. Have a safe trip.

Hmm--interesting that Dole Whip is no longer the "exclusive" treat of Disney. Or have other parks been serving it for years, too? I've only seen it at Disneyland and WDW.

 

EDIT: Did a little googling. It seems that they serve Dole Whip and the Dole Plantation on Hawaii (makes sense), Lapperts Ice Cream Shops in California, and Mr. B's Ice Cream and Food in Latrobe, Pa.
