  • SFMM's 2009 Coaster!

    According to Six Flags and screamscape, Six Flags Magic Mountain will be home to a new GCI woodie next year, due to the sucess of the Evil Kniveil SFSL. Six Flags wants to build a meaner version here in California. Does anyone know more information?

    According to roller coaster data base, it will be a steel coaster...

    ...but according to a poster on Theme Park Review says:

    "While giving his keynote speech at the ACE banquet, Mark Shapiro let it slip that Magic Mountain would be getting a new wooden GCI coaster next year. He said it would be themed to the movie 'Terminator Salvation'."

              They've tried boring (Colossus) and painful (Psyclone); third time's the charm?

              A bientot.

                You must have never ridden Colossus back in the day. That ride used to be absolutely INSANE. Tons of airtime, fast, and best of all it raced.

                Psyclone was a good ride when it first opened too.

                All it took to ruin them both was a little Magic Mountain magic, and they were turned into shadows of their former selves.

                  Yeah, 1st time was '91, and I did actually like Psyclone then. Couldn't believe the difference 10+ years later.

                  A bientot.

                    There's new rumors going around that the ride will somehow be themed to the new Terminator movie. Any guesses how that will work?

                      I love Colossus, especially backwards..Psyclone however I hated with a passion. It will be interesting to see how they theme it towards Terminator though. Maybe the trains will have the T-800 heads on the front.

                        Should be cool, but SFMM hasn't had a good history of maintaining their woodies. So im thinking of it as a bad investment at the moment.

                        trouble is most folks won't take the time to go look for it.

                          SoCal parks as a whole don't have good records in maintaining their woodies. I mean, Ghostrider at Knott's was probably my favorite coaster EVER when it first opened. Now, I can't even ride it it's so rough.

                            2 GCI's opening in the same state at around the same time, this gonna be a sick year in Cali.

                            From what i've heard the new coaster at SFMM is going to be a new prototype, a woodie/steel hybrid. That's just what i've been hearing.




                            ...I thought Terminator was Universal.

                              As a person who loves the biggest thrills, i still like Colosus its fun. Though it doesnt look well maintain i hope that the new woodie is awsome!
                              Terminator is futuristic and woodies dont really fit that so i wonder how thats gunna work out.
                              Yea and isnt Terminator a Universal thing?
