Derrion: It has been sometime since we last visited Six Flags Magic Mountain, and I could have not been more excited to get back in the park. Weekdays are still the very best days to come in and ride because attendance is typically low and I like the feeling of taking the time to notice all the small things that the park has to offer. Let’s take a look at some of the changes going on in the park and update on West Coast Racers, new for 2019! Continue reading “Six Flags Magic Mountain- December 7th Park Update”
Sean: This year’s Holiday in the Park is another step up from what was already one of the best Holiday events in the country. Six Flags Magic Mountain opened their popular Holiday in the Park in 2014 and ever since has been leading the California market with the most unique event around, celebrating all winter holidays in a modern high-energy fashion. This year the park has introduced several new attractions for the event! Let’s take a look! Continue reading “Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Magic Mountain”
Alexander: Ok, the title of this article is kind of a loaded statement. How is Fuji-Q like Magic Mountain? Like, besides the obvious reasons?
To be honest, they’re not as similar as we’d originally pictured; Fuji-Q Highland is shockingly small, and, despite their 4 major coasters drawing some obvious parallels, their collection of coasters overall is just a fraction fo the size of Magic Mountain’s. Still, we know a lot of Six Flags Magic Mountain fans who will take personal interest in the similarities between the parks, and, as long as we have a “Cedar Point of Japan” (Nagashima Spa Land), we might as well have a Japanese Magic Mountain.

Sean:Journey to Atlantis at SeaWorld San Diego closed last month to undergo a lengthy, but much needed refurbishment. Journey to Atlantis opened in 2004 as the second water coaster SeaWorld had obtained from Mack Rides. Over the years many of the effects stop working and the coaster/flume hybrid has gotten increasingly rougher. Worry no more, as we will discuss in this update, Journey to Atlantis will be completely re-tracked and some of its original effects will be brought back!

Sean: Coaster Kings started as California Coaster Kings, likely where you know us from. Now we’re changing. We’re the same people. With the same coverage. On a new website. Continue reading “What is Coaster Kings?”
Sean: After the departure of Boomerang at Knott’s Berry Farm last year, people started wondering where the brightly-colored roller coaster would be located next. Many guessed at a Cedar Fair park, some guessed an Asian park. Thanks to Belgian Plopsa Fans, we now have an answer as to where Boomerang is reopening.
Derrion: We hope everyone is enjoying their holiday. Here is a holiday treat, if you plan on visiting the Disneyland Resort, the iconic attraction is back after its refurbishment. This update will focus on some of the cosmetic changes you can see to the new the Matterhorn Bobsleds.
Derrion: What a great way to kick-off the holiday season with Knott’s Merry Farm. I was so excited to attend this years’ event because not only was it my first time covering this event as media, but it also was the first time I experienced the “Merry”-ness as a guests. Knotts Merry Farm provides the warmth and love inside that we need in the world. This update will focus on the shows and attractions you will experience at this years event.
SeaWorld San Diego was presented with three Brass Ring Awards by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions during the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2018 held earlier this week in Orlando, Florida.
Derrion: It may not be the most thrilling place in the world, but it does live up to its reputation as the happiest place on Earth for me. Disneyland is very therapeutic and keeps my inner child alive. This was a great day to visit the parks because it was the first day of the Holiday season at the Disneyland Resort. This won’t be the longest update but it was great to notice some of the changes going on now for the festive celebration.
Sean: We’re back at Six Flags Magic Mountain where the park is quickly shifting between two of their seasonal events. Fright Fest just ended last week, but very few of that remains. With Holiday in the Park starting next week the park is slowly transforming into a winter wonderland. In this update we’ll also look at some other changes and operations around the park!
Derrion: Hello coaster royalty! I have been eager to get back to Universal Studios Hollywood as a guest after my recent impromptu trip to the Universal Orlando Resort for the first time. Universal Studios Orlando was a larger park but I noticed the quality and aesthetics of the buildings here at Universal Studios Hollywood were less outdated and more welcoming. Rather than focus on the positives and negatives of both Universal parks, this update will include recent updates and changes to Universal Studios Hollywood with a hint of contrast between the two Universal parks.
