What do you want to see from Six Flags Magic Mountain's new family roller coaster?
Written by Robert Niles
Six Flags Magic Mountain is expected within the next few days to announce the name and design for its new family roller coaster, which will debut in 2010. (Given when past roller coasters have debuted at Magic Mountain, I'd expect around Memorial Day weekend.)Tweet
Since we're talking about a family coaster here, my first thought is a Vekoma, which has a wide line of family coasters. But Magic Mountain's only Vekoma is Deja Vu, which hasn't had the greatest track record - in terms of up-time or popularity - during its run at the park. Does that lead Magic Mountain to look toward a different manufacturer? Heck if I know.
So let's speculate. What would you like to see from Magic Mountain when it makes its announcement later this month? The LA Times reported that the site will be between Deja Vu and Johnny Rockets, but that seems a really tight fit to me.
Give me names; give me models. I'm going to go out on a limb, to start the discussion, by guessing that the name will not be "OMG".
