    New LA Times Magic Mountain article:

    Basically they want to sell the parks up for sale in a package deal to ensure that the less disirable parks get sold as well.

    Which IMO is the main reason SFMM is on the block anyway.

    I'm just hoping none of the parks get torn down and sold off. Though, some say Elitch Gardens' current incarnation would improve upon its destruction.

    You know, I hate to say it ... but after spending the day at SFMM yesterday I'm finding myself increasingly less concerned about the parks fate.

    We had a good time, Tatsu was fun. But when the smoothest ride of the day is Deja Vu there is something wrong. Riddlers, Scream, Colossus, Ninja even Superman were all ROUGH and pretty much un-rideable. I had such a headache by 1pm that I was ready to go. And go we did.

    It seems to me that SFMM is coming to an end. When I buy my new house there, I want it to be in the area of the Revolution, since that is the first rollercoaster I ever went on there.

    I have to admit. $500mill for all the parks combined is a very fair amount of money for the assetts one would be getting. (Especially since SFEG was up for 170m by itself). That being said, if I had a cool half-billion burning a hole in my pocket I still wouldn't buy those parks. THey come with a LOT of problems as we all know!

    That will be how they sell any homes they build on that land. Your house is on the former location of...

    I think I'd go with the tower. You'd have the best view...not that there's a really good view to have around there.

    Then your house could have a plaque that said, "This house stands on the former site of the Six Flags Magic Mountain tower that was hardly ever open."

    No way.

    That is insane.

    I still wish another park operator would buy Magic Mountain

    in my dreams Nintendo buys it and refurbs Revolution so that it's smooth and has nicer head restraints that don't slap you on every twist and turn

    and then they take the refurbed Revolution and rename it the Wii


    then they could use those monitors to play old episodes of Super Mario Brothers Super show

    the only other coasters I care for in that park though are Ninja cause it's fun and X because it's unique

    they could turn the water park into Island Del Fino or whatever from Mario Sunshine and the upper mountain area could become DK themed and another area Zelda :B and the Loony Tunes area could get a pokepark redo :B


    ahh dreams


    anywho I don't think taht area needs more houses it's slow enough trying to pass it with all those traffic jams the area already has

    Or no head restraints. I can live without them.

    me too never been on it without them though my cousin says it was great

    I just added in redesigned because if they redesigned the cars right it seems to me that it wouldn't that much of an issue but the way they seem to just be added on as an afterthought now leads to them hitting you in the face and being gross and uncomfortable
