Well everyone, here we go again. It is time for yet another Six Flags Magic Mountain update. You'd think by now we would have run out of things to report, yet here we are with more things to report. Robb and I met up to discuss the possibility of having a scavenger hunt for TPR on the X2 reopening day. We definitely want to plan something, so we
will work out details and let you know in the near future. We walked around the park and met up with Joey,
went on a few rides and enjoyed a nice Saturday evening at the park. Enjoy!
(The photos are arranged by location, not by time of day.)
As Robb drove in, he saw an incredible sight: Superman, Goliath, Scream, Colossus trains/cars all going at the same time.
It is not necessarily special, but a nice first impression when pulling up to the park. Unlike KBF!
The parking lot was not in overflow, but C Lot was almost full.
The first thing you notice when entering a new area of the park is where all of the employees are.
Seriously, they are very noticeable now, and you can see guests confidently approaching employees to ask for assistance.
No employees here!
Even Corbin Bleu from the Disney channel is trying to get in on some bright shirt action.
In this picture is a new-shirt employee, and an old-shirt employee.
Can you see where the old shirt employee is?
3-Point Basketball continues to bring in guests all day long. They recently added sports themed music on the court which not only livens up the area,
but it really brings in the guests.
The Jet Stream area is slowing seeing improvement as promised. This tree is just one of many that have been planted over the past week.
Landscaping popping up everywhere.
Queue building has received paint. We also noticed how clean looking the Jet Stream water looked. Honestly, it looked clean enough to swim in!
This cell phone charing station can be found in one of the stores by Psyclone 500. After 15 minutes your cell phone is fully charged.
There is one by the Colossus County Fair Arcade, and one more at the front of the park.
The machines are free, although some still have directions on them saying that it cost $2.
(There is nowhere on the machine to put money in.) I highly approve of these machines!
Cyclone Bay will be keeping its name. Enough said.
Corey and the other Electricians have been doing a great job bringing light back to the park. The Gotham City Backlot arch and other statues are brightly lit up,
and Viper's entrance glow in captivating. The next project is the X2 lift.
New patio sets have replaced the old tables and chairs at Cyber Cafe.
AND LOOK...THEMING! Okay, so they are just wall decorations, but when was the last time you saw wall decorations here? I consider this theming!
And the fresh mini doughnut maker! This is one of the coolest things about Cyber Cafe. But you need to make sure that you eat them warm.
It will defeat the whole purpose if you eat them cold!
Even the trash cans are nice and spiffy.
The outer patio is nice and colorful as well, and the fountain adds for a great atmosphere out back.
There are reminders now at all of the Merchandise locations for season passholders. Discounts! (and a "pass" is not a body part.)
Johnny Rockett's Fries and Shakes is now open at the restaurant formerly known as Justice League Feast, formerly known as Chicken Plantation.
Every new location that opens comes equipped with anti-infinatethrill features, such as this wonderful door!
The menu. Notice chicken strips are are also served.
Robb says: "Haha fries, I am going to turn you into poo...but you need more salt."
I hadn't been on Tweety's Escape since my summer camp days, and although I could still stand in the cages, it was not too comfortable.
Joey getting caged up.
And Robb gracefully folded his body into the cage.
We'll be honest, showing the good and bad. We had to go looking for it, but we did find a large amount of trash in the Riddler's queue.
I learned something valuable today: When I do my park walks to meet guests and pick up trash on the midways,
it is important to also go into the queue lines, because there is still alot of trash there as well.
This looks like Magic Mountain cira 2003, not the Magic Mountain of 2008.
And we end today with Mike. The Scream crew was doing a great job with their dispatch times. They were sending one train before the second train even got to the ending block break.
Thanks to Robb for photos!
If you haven't been to the park in a while, it is officially time to get your butt back here to see the new SFMM!
