Preston: It was a very soggy day at the Disneyland Resort this past Thursday. Though the rain was strong, that did not stop us from heading over to Anaheim to visit the parks. In this update, we have Sleeping Beauty Castle updates, Astro Orbiter updates, some Lunar New Year festivities, and more!
Sean: Today we attended a wonderful tour of the new-for-2019 Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando! The new themed land will not only be home to some great family rides, but also meet ‘n greets with your furry Sesame Street friends, and of course the brand new parade. Let’s take a look around the construction zone!
Sean: In today’s new Busch Gardens Tampa update we’ll be taking a look at the RMC construction/demolition taking place on Gwazi, the progress made on Tigris, the post-refurb changes on SheiKra, and lots more!

Derrion: With not many changes this time around, I need a bit of liquid luck from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, so why not pop in for a bit. Here’s a quick update on some neat things I look forward to seeing in the future at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Sean: This weekend was the second weekend of SeaWorld Orlando’s Inside Look. After the success at the San Diego park, SeaWorld Orlando brought the event to their park and it’s been a hit! We’ve been so fortunate to check out 5/6 Inside Look stations, which we’ll give a short recap of in this update. Also in this update you’ll find Sesame Street construction and several additional notes!
Sean: Six Flags Magic Mountain reached capacity earlier today (December 30th, 2018) due to a combination of nation-wide crazy theme park crowds this Holiday season, and the bring-a-friend-free tickets for pass holders and members. Let’s take a look at this chaotic crowd at the park! Continue reading “Six Flags Magic Mountain Reaches Capacity – Let’s Take a Look”
Alex: Halloween was already a few days ago, but that doesn’t stop us to visit some horror fun! We made a final visit to Horrorland, the new scream park in Spain and we were greatly surprised by its evolution.
Sven: Last Sunday, we ended the European theme park season in a park that won’t even be closed. Nevertheless, we had a good reason to visit Efteling on this sunny day in November: Fall colors!
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.
Sean: Fright Fest ended just days ago but six Flags Magic Mountain is wasting no time preparing for this year’s Holiday in the Park. This is also the time that the park has now closed Cyclone Bay access as West Coast Racers construction will really get started. We’ll be looking at that, as well as current ride closures and operations in this update! Continue reading “Six Flags Magic Mountain Update – October 31st 2018”
Alexander: Since we haven’t done a Disneyland Resort update in a while, we figured it was time! We’ve definitely been in the mood to soak up as much time as possible at some of our favorite SoCal parks!
Sean: Since we had a few days off we decided to hang out at some of SoCal’s parks this week. We were certainly in the mood for Montezooma’s Revenge and some fries at Knott’s Berry Farm, the park we hung out at first! In today’s Knott’s Berry Farm Update we take a look at our time at the park and the detailed Big Foot Rapids refurbishment, rumored to be the new Knott’s attraction! Continue reading “Knott’s Berry Farm Update – October 30th 2018”
Sean: We spent a few days hanging around Six Flags Magic Mountain riding all coasters (that are operating) and we have a quick park update for you! Most of this report will be regarding the West Coast Racers project! Continue reading “Six Flags Magic Mountain Update – October 24th 2018”
Sean: After spending nearly 3 weeks in Asia to visit 20+ theme parks, we’re back home in Los Angeles. While catching up with work and preparing posts for all those Asian theme parks we’re launching this new Six Flags Magic Mountain Update!
