It was the on ride photo sales place.

Also, Magic Mountain vehicles are terrifying. Back when I worked there, the electricians van door was opened with pliers...

Trying to picture what they removed to make room for this ride. Help me out here. I keep mixing up Gotham with the area where Riddler is.

Batman Stunt Theater - demolished
Gas station - demolished
Climbing wall - demolished

I take it the upcharge Flying Burrito ride is still there, as is the BBQ restaurant?
And the totally non-DC-themed Tidal Wave which is okay since it's always closed?

And I'd still like to think those electrical-looking conduits were really for pyro shells.

I look like Jesus

The gas station was used, in the new Katy Perry video chained to the rhythm. So we will always have a strange video of it.
Nice report lots of cement and conduit nice construction, Looking forward to this when it opens. I like the ride path looks pretty random :)

Thanks for the photos! Nice to see the attraction progressing right along. I am glad SFMM is moving into adding more diversity into their line-up for the attraction roster. A good first step for them. Probably going to be an uptick in theme park tourists in 2019/2020 coming to socal, great time to go all in on a DC universe. Also happy Apocalypse is being worked on, pretty great in it's early years. They should probably flip the theme to Doomsday or to "Apokolips" to be , to tie it into the DC theme. Ride already looks sun bleached and desolate as it is, not much painting required.

Okay, tonight we had an opportunity to preview the new Metro Park Pub in the soon to be open Metropolis area of Six Flags Magic Mountain, which will also be home to "Justice League: Battle for Metropolis" (Opening July 12!). This is an outdoor beer garden that not only has beer, but great bar food as well. We were treated to everything from flatbread pizza, to fried shrimp, and even a vegetarian kale salad(For the vegis out there, SFMM is trying to put at least one vegetarian option at all food locations in the park.) At the moment there are bottled selections, but beer on tap will be installed shortly. There's a stage for live entertainment and plenty of seating with umbrellas for shade. I will say it was very nice in the evening, very shady and cool with a nice atmosphere.

As this is a thread for JL:BFM, the official opening date is July 12, with technical rehearsal the July 9-10. Remember technical rehearsal means no guarantees, it may or may not run at any time! Other fun stuff, free admission is being offered to anyone who dresses up in full DC character costume on opening day July 12. Now this doesn't mean you wear your favorite Superman shirt, it means an actual costume. Details should be released shortly on the Six Flags Magic Mountain website, and you will have to sign up to get your free admission.

Okay, pictures...

Beer here!

p2.JPG
Quite a large area, should be very popular.

p3.JPG
Some sort of seating area. I was wondering if there is a smoking area, and if so, is this it? I do not know.

p4.JPG
Nice long tables for all our friends! Also, bar stools if you have no friends...the shrimp will be your friend.

p5.JPG
Plant with a rock in it.

p6.JPG
Stage for live entertainment, or possibly they are going to stomp grapes and make Six Flags wine.

p7.JPG
Pass out here. Kidding, drink responsibly!

p8.JPG
Long row of bar stools.

This will be where you pick up your food.

Chris Parker was in charge of food and did an amazing job.

f2.JPG
Kale salad, it was um...yeah, I didn't eat any, but those who did said it was good.

f3.JPG
If you're really hungry you can order the trough of pork rinds! No, really it's for the pork rind nachos...yes...pork...rind...nachos.

f4.JPG
Did I mention they are topped with meat?

f5.JPG
Beer battered fish and chips. If you like fried fish, this is good stuff.

f6.JPG
The fish was good, the shirmp was awesome!

f7.JPG

f8.JPG
Fried cheese curds! I think these would even meet Elissa's standards, and she doesn't fool around when it comes to cheese!

f9.JPG
These pizzas are very good, the flatbread crust had a really great taste and texture.

f10.JPG
i actually took the end pieces, because I liked the crust. Very good.

f11.JPG
Fried green beans, not bad, I actually ate a few.

f12.JPG
Did I mention fried cheese? Cause, um...FRIED CHEESE!

Dirt, the public loves dirt!

Can't put my finger on it, but something isn't done?

Opening July 12th, because...JUSTICE!

Thank you to Six Flags Magic Mountain, the Metro Park Pub turned out great!


Okay, there you go, and thanks to Six Flags Magic Mountain for inviting us for a beer and some great food! As I've been doing the last few trips I had berryfarm help with taking some extra photos, so stay tuned for her post. Definitely more pictures of the Justice League ride.

Pork Rind nachos must be the "new thing", I've been to like 3 restaurants in the past couple months that serve them. Not a bad thing at all!

Here are my thoughts about the Metro Park Pub.

The flat bread pizza was tasty and filling. I liked it but who doesn't like pizza?
Deep fried fish and chips, fried shrimp, deep fried cheese balls and loads of fries lots other stuff to all make appropriate accompaniments to the craft beers on hand. IPA's and premium lagers grace a generous beer selection. You're sure to find a favorite.

Food looks great. The patio looks like someone's backyard.
