Six Flags Mexico (SFM) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Hmmm... This looks a lot like Dare Devil Dive from SF New England...

 

or Caribbean Swing from SF Hurricane Harbor (Arlington, TX)

 

Screamscape - Six Flags over Texas (12/23/14 - UPDATE) Local sources tell us a few attractions have been removed from the Six Flags over Texas parks. For starters, the Skycoaster has been removed from the nearby Hurricane Harbor waterpark and the pieces stacked up in a parking lot awaiting transport to a new home. Rumor says the Skycoaster’s future may be somewhere South of the border.

Take a look at this. The main entrance to Reino Aventura 6 years before the conversion to SFM. It was beautiful!

 

This was part of the Whaling Walls series of murals by artist Robert Wyland. This piece of art named "Free Keiko" was part of the movement for the release of Keiko, the orca from the "Free Willy" movie.

It such a shame that Six Flags decided to get rid of it, maybe to avoid any Sea World reference?

Both Six Flags Great America and Six Flags Mexico, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, will bring the next generation of interactive thrills to their parks with the debut of JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis. This immersive, 4D virtual reality-like ride was named by USA TODAY readers as one of the Top Ten New Amusement Park Attractions in 2015 and was most recently awarded Best New Attraction by Theme Park Insider. Guests become members of the JUSTICE LEAGUE Reserve Team and engage in a full-sensory journey as they battle alongside BATMAN™, SUPERMAN™, WONDER WOMAN and GREEN LANTERN against Lex Luthor, The Joker and his henchmen. Traveling in six-passenger vehicles, riders must outsmart the villains to save the city of Metropolis.

^It'll be a great addition to the park, I was kind of surprised there's only 2 more of these being built this year after the first two seemed quite popular but then again I thought the same thing when I saw only one free-fly/spin coming this year. Was there a building already at the park that will be used for this?

^^ I wish we had a dark ride like this, coming to my home park.

 

And I miss Six Flags Mexico, too. Must go back, some year soon.

My wife and I are in Mexico City now - we were somewhat shoehorned into visiting SFM late-ish Sunday night, during a light rain and an unusual cold-front, due to the fact that SFM isn't open on weekdays now during the time that we're here. And we were still blown away by this park.

 

The landscaping and themeing of the rides and really the whole park was impeccable. All of the space was utilized brilliantly. Frightfest events had started, and there were actors and heavy fog / light effects throughout large sections of the park, which were fantastic. We didn't have time for any of the haunts, but the frightfest themeing was far above that of most Six Flags parks we've seen. The park was open until midnight, which was awesome, and nothing closed despite the weather. Props to the Mexicans too, the park was still lively despite the poor weather. The operations were fantastic, which we weren't expecting from previous reviews. Every single ride was pumping out laps as fast as they could, with all major rides running multiple trains. Lines moved quickly, and there were plenty of staff around, especially in the stations, where each train was loaded and checked by at least 4 ride operators - the park was clean and the crowds well-controlled.

 

And MEDUSA!!! Was life-changing. We only had a chance to ride it in the dark (we aren't complaining), and twice, (which was an unexpected gift, as someone at the front of Boomerang handed us their unfinished flash pass tickets), but it was start to finish incredible. The line was great (through the crooked house, and the long meandering walk through the middle of the ride). We were impressed how the ride fit so well into the surrounding area / trees / rocks, with no deadspace. The fog was coming in from fright fest areas. The loading was quick and efficient. The first drop was fantastic, the airtime was insane and relentless and consistent, the pacing (as everyone says) was perfect, the inversions were so well-placed, the over-banked turns and the overall relentless intensity - my biggest takeaway was 'wow, what a breath of fresh air', which is a lot for us jaded enthusiasts, and something I didn't expect from a recycled layout of the old Medusa. Really, we were so impressed. I had a little bit of a tough time placing this ride, but it's definitely in my top 5 - if not my #2 steel. We had just ridden Twisted Colossos a few weeks earlier, and Medusa was our hands-down favorite.

 

And as if Medusa isn't enough, Superman at night with the fog rolling in was a real treat as well. My wife grew up in Pittsburgh with Phantom at Kennywood (which she loves), and she much preferred this. I don't know where I stand on the comparison, really, but Superman is definitely one of the better Morgan (or Arrow) hypers.

Hey guys, I'm looking into visiting SFM near March 20th. Any locals have anything to warn me about? On their website, it looks like Boomerang is temporarily closed, but I don't see that for any other coasters, I would definitely avoid a visit to the park of Medusa wasn't running. Any info on crowds on a Sunday in March would be very welcome! Thanks so much!

This is really neat! It seems like just yesterday Six Flags was just emerging from bankruptcy and here they go again buying another park. However given the population of Mexico City and the apparent recent success of Six Flags Mexico, this seems to be a very smart move.

I went on a Saturday last March and go figure, everything was running except the Boomerang. Lines were very short except for Joker and Medusa which were randomly an hour with other rides all walk-ons. Just buy a few of the paper Flash Passes, they are insanely cheap.

How is construction coming along for Justice League?

 

They're almost done. It will be opened by the first or second week on March.

I wouldn't go on that week being a local. It will be crowded. Consider that March 21st is a mexican holiday and 24th and 25th are part of easter week. On that week they're running almost everything at full capacity and they don't want to have a roller coaster like Medusa down. If possible, I would choose March 6th or 13th.

 

On the other hand, you can buy VIP experience with only 55 dls (online) and you have 1 ride on Medusa (no need to wait in line). And if you need more, you can buy a flash pass (1 ride) for another 10 or 12 bucks (price depends on demand).

 

^It's elsewhere in Mexico, and from the sounds of it is the reopening of an SBNO water park. It's not affiliated with Six Flags Mexico (other than being run by the same chain).

 

Exactly. 1.5 h driving from SFM...

According to this video, Six Flags will just be managing the water park and they have a contract for 20 years. I thought they bought it but apparently not.

 

 

Well that's interesting. Are there any other parks, or water parks in the chain that SF just manages? Or will this be the first one?
