  • Questions About Six Flags

    Hi all.
    Ok so....my friend talked me into going to Six Flags with them on November 15th. I'm NOT a roller coaster fan and I know I'm glutting for punishment this time.

    So I want to know, what are some "scaredy-cat" must go rides?

    I'm excited and nervous so any info would be helpful. I've never been there before.

      For coasters that are on the "lighter" side, you should ride Gold Rusher and Ninja (if they're still there - I haven't been to Magic Mountain for a couple of years). Colossus is a classic wooden coaster - shouldn't be too alarming for you.

        Gold Rush and Ninja are a definite yes.
        As for Colossus, I'll have to think about that one!

        Thanks for your input =)

          Let's see, how do you deal with intensity, inversions, speed, height, any problems with restraints, what's the biggest coaster you've been on, these are just some questions to get the ball rolling...I'm a bit of an expert on coasters.

          And by the way, not the best choice for a coaster-weenie to visit the place with the second highest concentration of them in the country

            intensity - eh, moderate, nothing too crazy.

            inversions - not for me.

            speed - i love to go fast.

            height - nothing like this:

            Restraints - i love them, LOL. no issues there.

            the biggest coaster i've been on: the one that goes upside down at DCA, I know....i'm pathetic.

              Ninja is an extremely fun ride. Make sure you sit in the very front seat.

              Revolution has only one loop, and is a fun ride. But it is very rough. You have to sort of ride defensevly.

              Gold Rusher was rough last time I was on it, but it is tame.

              Superman is very tall, but unless you look backwards, you will not know how high up you are. The ride does not even go near the top anymore, and is SHORT.

              Hopefully you have fun! Inversions do nothing for me anymore. I would give anything to get the feeling back of being scared of them again. I miss the pounding heart, the nervousness. In a way I am envious of people who still get to enjoy that.

                  That's a good idea. Tasting life sounds good......but I think I rather live long enough to enjoy it was well

                    The rides you'll likely enjoy are:

                    Revolution - Nothing more thrilling than Screamin', but kinda rough.
                    Ninja - It's a fun ride, not intense at all
                    Gold Rusher - Kind of like Big-Thunder, but not as fun or smooth.
                    Canyon Blaster - Kiddie coaster in Bugs Bunny Land

                    As for rides you might want to take a chance on:

                    Superman - Yes it looks tall, and fast, and scary, but it's not. It's a launch like Screamin'. It does go faster, but it takes longer to get up to top speed, so it doesn't seem as intense.

                    Colossus - The tallest drop is only 7 feet taller than the big drop on Screamin'. No loops or anything. I think you'll be fine here.

                    Other than those, everything else either contains multiple inversions or 200+ foot drops (Goliath).

                    IF by chance you want to be REALLY adventurous and "Live life" as snorkeld said, I'd start with Scream. It's probably the tamest multi-inversion ride at the park.

                      Thanks for all of your thoughts!

                      I'm still open to more if anyone else would like to post

                      I added a poll, but when I clicked the "allow multiple choices" it didn't work =\

                        As for your poll, the only ones I would say for you not to try would be Goliath and Viper. The rest you should be fine with.

                          That's good to know. . .I was almost considering riding those! You saved me! Haha. Are they pretty 'wild'?

                            Goliath has a 255 foot first drop and a helix that is pretty intense.

                            Viper has 7 inversions and a 171 foot drop.

                              That just took those two off my list! LOL. Thank you very much!
