I hope it's well protected, that stuff is one of a kind. Is the only reason the lower level is closed, because people can throw stuff out the gratings, or is it staffing?

^I don't know why they couldn't turn the bottom section into something that's very similar to the top, I don't think the staffing matters, all that's in that bottom section are emergency spotlights in case the park blacks out.

I believe it was closed down due to people throwing stuff out, there's a couple open grates up there where you can even poke your head out and look straight down. It's very cool being on that bottom section though, just because at 400 feet, you get to feel the wind and all that.

Thanks for clearing up all the traffic bologna up, that must really blow! In my opinion, the best way to get to the park if you're going Northbound (when the traffic is bad) would be to exit East on McBean, take it to MM parkway, and head West from there.

Here is one of the Sky Tower under construction, but it also shows the park around it under construction as well. So here is one photo for your two questions.

They will have a new reason to visit Sky Tower (besides the view) for a very small cost. I know that I'll have a great time up there when I visit on Easter Sunday.


Wait a minute...they are charging to get up into the museum? How much? This doesn't sound like a good idea to me. I mean as an huge fan of Magic Mountain I would pay the price but I doubt your average joe blow that goes to the park will

No there is no charge to go up to see the museum. I believe the post was just worded incorrectly.

Brandon, the Operations Supervisor said in the video that the Magic of the Mountain Exhibit cost very little to create.

Again, there is no extra cost to see the museum!

When was the lower level of Skytower closed anyways? If the opening gratings are the problem, then why not close them up too? And 300 people up there? Sounds a bit crowded...

Thanks for the pictures... Looks like great progress is being made.

Any word on how the train performed?

I cant belive that they are already testing! It seems like yesterday that they were just starting to repaint it. My little X ummmm, I mean X2 is growing up so fast :Pr . I can't wait until opening day!

I'm going in two weeks. Mabey at the pace that they're moving at they'll have it open by then. Probably not, but I can dream!
