January 25th, 2009 Update
Today we were able to go backstage to get a bit closer to the latest progress. Here you can see the turn around from last week is nearly done!
Those popsicle sticks have finally found their place in life!
The ride is coming along VERY fast. That's quite a bit put up just in the past 7 days.
Some close up shots for Joe.
"It's the end of the ride as we know it..."
There's more there, it's just cloaked using T-2000 futuristic technology.
More closeups for Joe!
Getting tired of looking at the turn around? No? GOOD!
Radar dish to communicate with other life forms. (Terminators need this kind of equipment)
Another look at, yep, the turn around!
More popsicle sticks waiting for love.
Hey look! There's another section going up!
Another overview of the middle section.
Here is where the Shooting Gallery once stood. I'm told this will be the entrance area to the coaster.
A bridge will someday be built here.
Bridgey, Bridge, Bridge, Bridge, Bridge.
Weather was FANTASTIC to be out taking dirt pictures today!
More Dirt. More Popsicle Sticks. Cones, Cones, Cones...
Mud...why did it have to be mud.
Here you can see Terminator starting to sneak up over the fence.
This building will soon be the new Johnny Rockets Snakes and Pies...errr...Shakes and Fries!
And the Ice Cream Shop at the front of the park will be a full service Cold Stone! (The Cold Stone at the back of the park is staying, too!)
The Sky Tower offers an awesome view of the progress.
There's that new little section hiding behind the freshly painted Deja Vu!
Popsicle Sticky sticks.
The lumber supply is getting lower and lower (and Leon's getting LARGER!!!)
The little section being built. It's so cute! You just want to reach out and pet it...c'mon go ahead...pet your screen! Do it! In fact, take a picture of you petting your screen and EMAIL DAN with the picture: email@example.com
(include your mailing address with your picture and we'll send you a TPR Bag-of-Crap!)
I'm TELLING you! This whole Terminator theme is just a cover up for Goliath 2!
Once this area is cleared of wood, it would make the PERFECT place for a Terminator Opening Day Campout (hint, hint!)
Here's an overview of the entire site.
I haven't taken an overview "park photo" in a while...so here's one! Enjoy!
Arrow Fun Junction.
Q-Bot area still looking like two evil faces under construction.
The Yo-Yo gets a bit of love.
New for 2009! Fresh Paint!
It's nice to see the older rides getting some care.
And finally we leave you with the Customer Service Policy. Words to live by! Until next week....
A big THANK YOU goes out to Six Flags Magic Mountain for giving us access to take these photos.
