Evacuation order was finally lifted for my house on Sunday so I got to go to the park for a couple hours today to unwind a little. It seems like they're ready to go for Holiday in the Park. Twisted Colossus was running with 3 trains. The only (unusual) closure was X2. Gate was closed and nobody was guarding the bridge. Viper had crews working on the transfer track. Heard a rumour recently that it might not be back up till next year. From Ninja I saw that they were digging and doing prep work for footers behind the Epic Rides store. Other than that not much change around the WCR area. Another thought, was there a fire by the park recently? I noticed that the brush behind Batman was all burned. Also, because of the fires LA county and Ventura County schools are out till after Thanksgiving, so expect the park to be more crowded than usual on weekdays through then. When I left around 2:30 the second lot was starting to fill up to the picnic area. Oh, and still no signs of life at Green Lantern, even though Neal mentioned it should be up and running by the time WCR opens.

^X2 closes when there's even a slight breeze in the forecast, and high winds are forecasted in Valencia all the way through tomorrow.

That's interesting about the burnt brush behind Batman. Maybe it was a controlled burn?

Holiday in the Park opening night!!

Theme Park Review was invited to experience opening night of Holiday in the Park. We got to sample all the foods that will be available during "Taste of the Holidays Food Festival". It runs Dec. 15th-30th. I believe it will be one of those punch card type deals.

SFMM really looks impressive this year. There are next to no spots that aren't lit up. New this year is Merry Lane in Metropolis. Huge ball ornaments dominate the landscape with colorful light shows. Of course it snows here too every 20 minutes I believe.

Santa's Cottage is also new this year. It's located in front of Bugs Bunny World. Santa's there of course being it's his cottage, and there's crafts for children also. Santa even got to meet some Kardashian's while we were there tonight. :lol: :lol:

On to some pictures!

This was my favorite. Chicken and Waffle. Real crispy tender chicken nugget. The waffle is like infused with syrup. So rich and delicious!

That's some of the most fun I've had at SFMM besides West Coast Bash. And I didn't even ride one ride! Not even the bus after parking in the gravel lot. There was a good sized car show in the parking lot, KROQ I believe had extended hours for their fans, and first night of Holiday in the Park had the place jam packed. Everyone seemed to be in such a good mood. It really was a great first night of Holiday in the Park. Look forward to getting back soon!!

Big thanks to everyone at SFMM for their hospitality!

Thanks for all the pictures, it actually looks like a really nice event. I know people love to hate Six Flags, and I know this is damning them with faint praise, but it looks a hundred times better than anything Merlin would do for example, at least in the UK parks.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Six Flags does an excellent job with their Holiday in the Park events. Dare I say I even prefer it to Knott's Merry Farm.

Thanks for the report. HITP is my favorite time of the year at Magic Mountain. It's not insanely hot, the lights are amazing, and it's easier to get night rides! Can't wait to go in December.

Me and the wife went last night( saturday) as well..the park looks amazing..merry lane is a cool addition...used our skip a lines for Tatsu and Twisted, both were relentless. Those were the only rides we hit and they were both running well and fast, tho didnt get the tatsu train with the lights. Everyone including all the staff we encountered really seemed to be in the holiday spirit. I dont think ive ever had a more pleasent experience at the Mountain. Go Six Flags! You really hit it out of the park this year, i hope this trend continues....havent been to Merry Farm yet but i thought Fright Fest was better than Scary Farm this year so saying HITP might be better than Merry Farm doesnt seem like to much of a stretch...nice trip report by the way, pictures are great, and ill have to try those chicken and waffles next visit.
