Thank you for this awesome, accurate and HILARIOUS trip report. One of the best on this site.

As a LA local, I could not agree with you more. I've been to almost all of the Six Flags parks - Magic Mountain really falls towards the bottom of the pack for me; it's just is such an odd place. No atmosphere. Few flats. Occasional sewage smells. Chipped paint. Bathrooms that rival public beach restrooms.  Employees that just seem completely dead inside. I would argue that even Six Flags America looks nicer - and that's sayin' something.

It's always been kind of the opposite for me. As someone who lived in the area for a couple of decades, I always loved SFMM and never understood the criticism it'd get. I currently living close(ish) to one of the most celebrated (SFFT) and I just don't get the appeal of that one at all. Don't get me wrong, I still visit now and again to marathon iRat and Superman, but different strokes I guess. I've only been to about five or six or the chain's parks, but SFMM is way, way at the top of the list for me. 

Fantastic report, Condor — particularly your writing style! I love Goliath and Füll Thröttle — always have, and Ninja is one of the park's standouts IMO. Conversely, I dislike X2 (very obviously a prototype!) and I'm not a fan of Tatsu either (the flying position feels awkward to me). I think West Coasters Racers is kind of terrible, but I also don't think I'm really the target audience for that one. Keep these reports coming as they're top-shelf and a blast to read!

Don't forget about Anaconda! LOL.

I jest.  Awesome report.  One day when California isn't so Californian, I might make it out there.

Thanks! And I actually did forget about Anaconda. I've never grouped it in with the others for some reason.

My last trip was September 2015 during West Coast Bash. Got a few rides on Twisted Colossus, one ride on X2, and NO rides on Sky Tower. Why? Closed. 

Don't know if I will attempt this park again. It just manages to piss me off every time.

If I didn't live close by, I'd probably feel the similarly. An old poster on here, my friend Gnome, said SFMM kind of sucks the life out of you. I've never forgotten that!

I think they’re on a nice path now and with the addition of the RMC single rail their coaster collection will get a nice boost in quality!

Oddly enough, the new single rail just might be the thing that gets me going back a little more often. I could see myself rotating between that, TC, and Tatsu for hours.

This was the best TR I've read in as long as I can remember. I enjoyed your honest thorough review, without completely trashing the place. 

Thanks for sharing.

That’s one of the best trip reports I’ve read in awhile, I won’t lie. 10/10
