Haha! Far from it! What do you know about me anyway? Sure, Magic Mountain does happen to be one of my homeparks, but it is not my favorite park.
I find it amusing that just because I made a statement about how the lame Six Flags or Magic Mountain jokes that are cracked over and over have gotten a bit stale immediately means I'm a fanboy. I see fanboys tend to be of the sort that run around parading how great their park is. I don't do that. I've also sat through my share of good Six Flags bashing and sarcasm without saying anything, and to an extent, it's humorous at times, but some Coasterbuzz members such as yourself really don't know when specified target sarcasm is dead, dried out, DONE, beaten to death.
Kingda, El Toro, and now Tatsu. It's like the new trend for Six Flags to import names from other languages rather than recycle through eight signature SF coaster names. My theory is Six Flags does not want to share coaster names with any other park chains. There is not a wealth of coaster names that have not already been used. This places a great deal of creative responsibility on C.O.'s for SF, who cares very little about coaster names. My guess is it would make more sense to them if coasters were simply numbered, then building themes around the ride's number. Sesame Street does a good job of that.
On a side note I do have to agree Magic Mountain does get slammed a lot. Do folks really feel it is the worst park in the country? They would be wrong. Is it frustration about how the park is not reaching its potential? I would agree with that. Or are coaster fans angry the park has chosen to add yet another roller coaster? An ironic complaint coming from coaster fans wanting less from a rare, west coast thrill-ride destination.
