The dolphin show was where batman was right? and the mystic lake was up front replaced by hurricane harbor? I think that's right.


Did el bumpo get replaced by the dolphin show or were they there at the same time? El bumpo was in that water behind "waterfront", the gazebo is still there. Did somebody say those are the same boats as the ones over at Mountasia or are they lying to me?



It was Atom Smasher, after Subway after Himalaya.


What were all the stores in spillikin bay? I know glass blower, candy, candleshop, I'm not sure if the sign guy was there back then. Anyone have a good map from then?

^Sky Tower was (obviously) built @ SFMM. But it's not like it something like that is custom. The story goes that it was originally fabricated for the Playboy Club in Chicago, but later sold to Magic Mountain.


And the nightclub was in what is now Gotham City. I think it was just an outdoor dance floor.

Answer: The movie "Rollercoaster".

I'll also add the TV movie "KISS meets the Phantom of the Park", the movie "3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain" (I think that was the name), and the opening credits of the show "Step by Step" to this list.

I also believe Vacation, the first one was partly filmed there.

A. Yes, magic mountain did the Galaxy (Intamin Double Wheels) you know the 4 gondolas on one each circle, four circle and one rotate. the count was 16 gondolas for the north wheel and 16 gondola for the south wheel that I believe eight small rotates for gondolas and two rotate close the beam that is the V-Shaped beam. they had the cable pulley with the wheel in under the base when start the cable can pull the wheel can lift down on the ground for the passenger load out and load in the gondola cages.


Q. Why did the Galaxy is removed?


A. I don't know about that I guess when the Magic Mountain becomes to Six Flags Magic Mountain so the El Bumpo is removed because the gas operated and too many crowd line for el-bumpo as the Galaxy is removed in 1979 because there are too many problem with cable and pulley wheel and motor.
