I still can't believe magic mountain is still waiting on their coaster from the 2019 new ride announcement... looks like we'll see next year's announcement before that coaster is even testing.

I have been following this forum off and on for a while now and finally decided to jump in myself today. I was wondering, does anyone know if UFO is still in storage by that barn and silo thing on property or did they scrap it?


Hi Matt. Welcome to the group.

Do you have the link to where you got this screenshot from? I was not able to find it on the SFDL website.

^ ‘Twas from those membership newsletters they send out. Great Adventure and Great Escape had the same blurb as I expected.

Great adventure and over Georgia actually had some clues today... Darien lake... nothing.

^ with the fact that Darien Lake has almost never teased anything new ever... I wouldn’t expect them to do it this time around either.

It was already established that the message about the new ride was used for other parks in the chain like Great Escape - but I haven’t seen anything from them either (and I don’t think I ever have to be fair).

Whatever’s coming will be very likely a surprise to most of us, but I highly doubt it will shock any of us.

I didn't see my one question answered... i know the park opens at 10:30 (going on a saturday) but is there early admission or early ride times?

For onsite guests, not sure about members

There are early ride times on 2 or 3 attractions every morning (weather permitting) for members AND resort guests a half hour before the park opens (10:00am ERT, 10:30am rope drop) there also appears to be some ERT for members this Friday and Saturday to celebrate National Rollercoaster Day after the park closes. When that actually is, I’m not sure. One source (email) says 10:00-11:00, the other (website) says 9:30-10:00.

This is probably not accurate anyways, but I thought I may as well put this screenshot here to generate some discussion. What do you all think of this?
