Justice League - Battle for Metropolis SFMM Hardhat Tour

Postby fatdaddy » Sat Mar 11, 2017 12:49 pm

We were invited to take a hardhat tour of SFMM's new "Justice League - Battle for Metropolis" dark ride. Not much in terms of the actual ride has been installed, but the ride building is up and the surrounding area is being transformed. Gas station and climbing wall are gone, and the area for the beer garden is being prepared. Much of the area will remain the same, with new theming and landscape changes to fit the Metropolis re-theme. Okay, pictures...

This is why we needed the hardhats.

Boxes of construction crap.

jl23.JPG
Tuby things.

jl26.JPG
Not sure how this works, but there's a marking on the floor next to it, so it must be important!

Queue up here.

jl28.JPG
Electrical looking stuff.

jl30.JPG
Outside, electrical looking stuff.

All this should get a facelift.

jl33.JPG
Beer garden somewhere back here.

jl34.JPG
Roller coaster.

jl36.JPG
Beer.

jl37.JPG
Behind the scenes, really, cause it's the back of the building.

Then beer garden area seems like it will be a decent size. Now about those beer prices?

Full frontal.

No more gas station.

Roller coaster over there, might get paint.

Thanks for all the great construction tour photos, Caesar! It's looking good.

I also think, that they should consider adding the fake green Astro Turf, as shown in the art concept!
It would make the surrounding area so surreal/comix-like for the show building, itself. IMhO. :smile:

Thanks for the report Caesar. I'm looking forward to riding Battle for Metropolis (here or elsewhere). Magic Mountain has always been lacking when it comes to dark rides.

Agreed. I've never been much of a dark ride person, but the park desperately needed an indoor ride with AC that the whole family could enjoy.

Interesting to see the RR will be painted green and yellow. I was honestly expecting them to paint it green and purple and call it Joker lol

I hope those trucks are haunt props and not an indication of how they treat their maintenance vehicles.

That's not even the worst of them, they have some truly deplorable trucks they drive around. You should see what auto shop drives.... :lmao:

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!
