Derrion: I hope everyone is enjoying summer! The park’s peak season is in full swing and it could not have been a better time to visit, although it was extremely hot. There were not many changes this time around, but we were able to capture some new additions to West Coast Racers. Lets take a look!
– 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! –
We highly advise against this as the line to purchase a ticket gets pretty long. You can save time and money by purchasing them online at the website here.
Did I mention it was over 100°F outside today? My mission for today’s visit was to stay cool and out of the sun as much as possible. If you want to get wet but not drenched Jet Stream is a great way to cool down.
I couldn’t close off the park update without addressing the elephant in the room. Green Lantern: First Flight has been closed for a couple years now and it was announced that it will no longer be in operation at Six Flag Magic Mountain. It was then rumored that it would reopen in the park. Here at thecoasterkings.com we know the ride will re-open eventually. However, whether it be at another park or in our home park, we still do not know. Once we have confirmed details you all will be the first to know. There are still no signs visually of demolition as the park is focusing on its 2019 project that will open later this year.

Speaking of supports, the spaghetti bowl portion of the ride received some new supports and track work. This figure 8 is going to be extremely compact. The coaster was about 70% finished during last week’s construction tour but it now looks to be about 80% finished.
No sign yet of work on the station or surrounding area. As much as we want to see this coaster open soon, it is great the park is taking the time to perfect the new area. After all, it will be home to the world’s first quadruple launch racing coaster.
