I'd love a Lech Coaster style ride. That ride looks super intense and amazing and it only cost seven million US dollars. I feel like Six Flags would love a model like that since it is so cheap. I'd love to see them go with a design that had more airtime though. It seems that the park doesn't have a whole lot of airtime oriented rides.

Hey Magic Mountain regulars.

I’m from NJ and visiting Magic Mountain sometime between July 1-10 and need help picking a date that wouldn’t be as crowded. Obviously July 4th weekend will be crazy but besides that I also need some tips for where to go first, what to eat, and basically what to expect. I went in 2014 like a week after Colossus closed but I was only like 10 and dont remember that. Anyway, I missed a lot of credits and am just gonna do anything anyway. So please help me out!! It would be greatly appreciated

I would suggest going the 9th or the 10th. The next best day may be the 8th as I have had luck with the Sunday's after a holiday week, If you are a gold member you will be able to get into the park 10 minutes early. Go straight to YOLOcoaster and knock this out right away. The line gets longer than most other rides and will stay that way. After YOLOcoaster, I go towards Goliath, Twisted Colossus, and Scream I will ride Goliath once and then I will get a few rides on Twisted Colossus before the queue starts to fill up. Continue to work around the park in the counter clock wise direction, hitting up Batman, Justie League, Riddler's, etc.You want to end up at X2 between 2:30-4. A lot of times X2 will be cleared out during the afternoon. Most people start at X2 and then return later in the day. I find that if you get to it in the late afternoon a lot of time the line is 15 minutes or less on most Sunday's. Sometimes it is empty. Tatsu. Apcalypse, and Superman will generally have medium lines. They could range anywhere from 10-45 minutes depending on the day. On the 4th they will be at least an hour.

I actually highly recommend going on the 4th. The 4th was one of the lowest attended days the past couple summers. Don’t go on the 3rd or the 5th, though.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Did SFMM last July 4th and it wasn't that bad. I try to go on days were their is big event to avoid large crowds. Like Disneyland on Superbowl Sunday is the BEST!

I think majority of the crowd will be at HH since it's HOT in the Santa Clarita Valley and people need to cool off.

Also, everyone get their last rides on Apocalypse tomorrow as the area back there is getting shut down on Monday to allow crews to work on project 2019. Originally it was slated for the 1st, but it was decided to keep the area open over the weekend.

Anyhow, it's an exciting time for the park as the 2019 coaster sounds like it's going to be huge.


Does anyone know if this closure has happened yet? If so, where did they put up the "walls" to block the area and what attractions were included in the closed off area? I see them putting one "wall" right after the exit of Roaring Rapids heading down the hill and the other before/after Cyclone 500. Does anyone have any pictures of the closed off areas?

I couldn't make it back east to visit family for Thanksgiving this past year as I went back for 2 weeks at Christmas time, so I went out to the park for Thanksgiving. It did have more people than I was expecting. but it was managable.

I Love Donkeys!

I don’t think the closure has happened yet, apocalypse was still running all day today.

I love donkeys more than me.

^ I hope so. I want to ride it tomorrow. But with my luck, they'll close it.

With Revolution and Green Lantern already down, you'd think they would want to leave it open as long as they possibly can.

Is anybody really missing Green Lantern? I think you want it open until Revolution is back up.
