Derrion: Hey Coaster Royalty! It’s been a while since we did a Six Flags Magic Mountain park update. This has been a very slow winter, with not much change from week to week. However, it does look like change is on the horizon with new additions in the park (and a West Coast Racers construction update).
– 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! –
At the park entrance there is a new kiosk that allows guest to purchase/upgrade to a Six Flags membership. This is also where you can find out more information regarding the current memberships offered. Each membership comes with different discounts and perks.
Today’s mission was to try something new at the park on my visit. The Go Fresh Cafe is an amazing addition to the park’s food line up. It offers vegetarian and vegan options that are all so yummy! I did not have it on this visit but I would totally recommend it.
I was on pursuit for a Greek pita sandwich and got just that at Food Etc. It is unfortunate that I had a bad customer service experience with an employee working here, which put a damper on my experience at the park. There is no need to go into further detail, but it would be great if Six Flags could focus a tad bit more on the customer service experience. Luckily, I don’t allow for things to get to me so easily, and got the mango Dole Whip soft serve which cheered me up. Its dairy free and for my first time trying it, I give it five stars.
There seemed to be a lot of ride closures in the park today. It was a bit windier than normal and most of the major attractions were closed. Goliath, Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom, X2, Ninja, Scream, Riddler’s Revenge, and now Jet Stream. Jet Stream is actually down for its annual maintenance but there is still no word on why the other attractions were closed for the day.
And just like that…The man of steel lives again! Superman: Escape From Krypton is open again after its current hiatus.
With so many other attractions closed in the park, it made it that much more difficult to ride the few that were open. Including this beauty! The wait time was over 30 min on a Wednesday in off peak season.
Full Throttle has been running amazing these days. I can wait for the new kid on the block, West Coast Racers. It is sure to be a hit once it finally is completed as I am already in love with the manufacturer. More on this next!
West Coast Racers
I am excited to announce that there is finally movement on the West Coast Racers construction site! It is important to know that supports have arrived on site and will soon inhabit this section. The footing casting is now complete.
Over near the Cyclone 500, all of the guard rails have been removed to make way for the supports that will soon tower over the race track. From this vantage point you can also see that the footer casting has been completed on this site and concrete should be poured in the near future for the footers and supports.
Well as always thank you all for reading, we will be back with more updates regularly as West Coast Racers pick up.
