They are two of the biggest Sf parks and they dont have one of these S&S mastepieces(Im talking about rides like Supreme Scream at KNotts or Power tower at Cedar Pointf you dont know what I mean). They are crowd pleasing rides with pretty good capacity if you use four towers.
Most SF parks have Intamin Giant Drops. It is strange though, that SFMM, SF's biggest park, has no modern drop ride. I'd bet SF would get an Intamin, because weren't all of SF's S&S shot rides bought before SF bought the specific park? (ie SFFT and SFNE)
I'd just guess that SF has a better, more established buisness relationship with Intamin and they know what they can expect out of them.
B&M Rocks, Magic Mountain's direct competitor, Knott's Berry Farm, has the world's tallest S&S tower. What would the point being if they build ANOTHER one? And even more to that, Disney's California Adventure, another competiting park, has a Space Shot tower as well. There's not point in installing an S&S tower at Magic Mountain. An Intamin stand-up Gyro Drop like Acrophobia would be a better choice if they were to build a modern drop ride.

No they are not. They are installing a new upcharge sling-shot like ride replacing their old one. I'm not 100% sure that it's not an S&S 'Absolutely Insane' pneumatic slingshot though. Could be, but most likely, it's not.

Incorrect, they are getting a SPRING Shot ride from Funtime Industies. The Spring shot is a redesgin of older sling shot rides but using safer steel cables rather than bungee cords and a spring chamber to launch the pod.
