I agree, too much is being put into SFMM, but there must be a fairly significant ROI if they're going to continue to do it.

Let's hope that this is true. I trust them. However, let's not forget how they got into financial trouble before: overspending.

Why would parts for 2013 be showing up in July 2012? If this is indeed a Sky Screamer, I would think it would be a late summer/fall addition no?

Isn't it kinda funny that we are calling 2 VERY tall rides "flat rides"? I'm all for more flat rides... thank god my home park is six flags Great America. What did Magic Mountain do with the Tilt-A-Whirl? For some reason, I figure it's gone because the restraints don't lock. Or did they add shoulder bars to that, too?

I hope the big parks (well... the 2 that usually fight over most coasters) would focus on improving what they have (expecially Magic Mountain). (I'll skip over mentioning the rumored/impending Colossus and Revolution return to greatness... oops, didn't do so well not mentioning that)

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

I think it is probable for Magic Mountain to purchase both a starflyer and a coaster for 2013. The park could use more "flat rides" and although there is Windseeker @ Knott's, there may be a chance that this could be similar to the starflyer in Vienna that would break the record for tallest swings in America.

I'm not sure why a SFMM Sky Screamer would have to be taller than Knotts ride. They just added a drop tower which is the tallest ride in California. If they add one I bet it will be a copy of the one at Great Adventure.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'm going with SkyScreamer as well. No need for it to be the tallest of anything. It's different enough from Windseeker. Most GP don't have any knowledge of the one at SFDK. No need for it to be too tall as it does get windy up at the park. Plus, the park is in DESPERATE need of some flat rides. Remember, the park doesn't make rides for "us", they make them for the other 99% of people.

If parts are already starting to arrive, it's entirely possible it could be open this year, especially if they are putting it in Thrill shots spot. They've already got the space for it. I haven't seen the SkyScreamer installations but I'd imagine the ride pad is essentially the same size as that. Can anybody confirm?

Guys, I hate to alarm you all, but apparently the Apocalypse (not the wooden coaster) is actually going to happen...

*Sarcasm*I'm calling a Sky Screamer built onto the sides of the Sky Tower that won't go all the way to the top, so we can argue about how tall it is. ;)
