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!
– In the past, many of our images have been posted, featured, and shared on forums, social media platforms and websites around the web. We work hard to provide the coverage that we do, and we encourage our audience to share our content and use our images, BUT ONLY IF proper credit is given to thecoasterkings.com. Thank you! –
The plaza and many of the buildings with in this area are so beautifully decked in snow. If you ever forget to get your photo at an attraction in the park, be sure to remember the time you rode along with the attraction name and a team member can look up your photo. Another tip, if you leave your photo pass for any reason they can use your email to add them to your account.
One treat this year, are Tatsu LED lights are not locked to the standard orange. For the holiday season they strobe from green to red in true Christmas fashion. I’m excited to see what other colors that the beast will be flying with in the future, they truly enhance the beauty of the roller coaster.
Not sure if I may have skipped these benches in the past but they were beautifully placed to compliment the theme of Samurai Summit. Looks like Tatsu is not the only dragons you will find lurking on the mountain
During this visit multiple attractions/areas were closed due to routine maintenance. The Superman: Escape From Krypton entryway was completely sectioned off which suggest the area is due for some refurbishment.
Twisted Colossus, my personal favorite, was also down for maintenance today and has been down sporadically due to technical issues. I did get a chance to see team members hard at work trying to revive the attraction and open it before the park closed for the day.
Since Twisted Colossus was down I decided to visit its neighbor in the Screampunk District and ride Scream! I am always impressed on how underrated this attraction is. I propose that if this ride were themed better it would pull in more of the crowds because it is a decent ride.
It may be me but I am super obsessed with the Intamin Giant Drop towers. This may not hold the world record for tallest or fastest but Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom is so amazingly fun. I just love taking in the views and the anticipation before you fall.
The board walk section of the park just received renovation this summer. Throughout the season they have added a new dining area to Johnny Rockets, Boardwalk Brews( a beer and concessions stand), and now they have added new decorative pieces to some of the walls.
In total there were six attractions down on the mountain during this visit. Superman: Escape From Krypton, Apocalypse, Justice League: Battle For Metropolis, Green Lantern: First Flight, Twisted Colossus, and of course Viper! It sure feels like something is missing when one of the attractions is down we hope that many of these attractions will be restored soon.
