Sean: We just launched a new Six Flags Magic Mountain Update last weekend but we like to follow up with another quick update! In this update we’ll take a further look at the Cyclone Bay construction, CraZanity, and more!
– Over the years, many of our images have popped up on other sites and forums, awesome that our coverage spreads, not so awesome that not everyone mentioned where they got the images from. We are totally fine with our audience using our images, BUT ONLY IF credit is given to californiacoasterkings.com. Thank you! –
Just this past week a small wildfire took place right next to the park, combine the ashes with the dusty housing development next to the park and you’ve got yourself dust/ash covered attractions. I feel bad for the park as their entire premises are covered in dust and it sure doesn’t help with making the park look pretty.
Jet Stream was closed during our trip to the park, there was staff present at the ride but the flume was empty. If it were up to me they’d close it and start its major refurbishment that I hope it will get with the relaunch of Cyclone Bay.
I haven’t seen the Jet Stream photo booth in use in a long time, I hope this makes a return. Now parks are keen on selling all-season photo passes I want them to offer a lot of variety of rides where they can get their on-ride photos.
Here’s a look at the construction zone at Cyclone Bay a few days later. The buildings that were taken down have all been cleared and the ground is leveled. It creates quite some space for the park to work with!
So is the Ninja station, that could use a bit of love. Unfortunately the ride is still down to one-train operations. Luckily we got to ride a few times just after it reopened from a technical delay, and that meant no lines of course.
This park honestly has such a great collection of coasters. This evening we came to the conclusion that Riddler’s Revenge is one of the park’s most important coasters. The ride has aged so well and the dedication to upkeep for this particular Stand-Up Coaster allows for it to still be in the top 5 attractions at the park.
Another cool note, as seen below, is the fact that when Jet Stream is drained the water levels are exceptionally high and the Ninja train swings quite close the water. Also note the huge amount of land clearing in the background.
Apocalypse in the background is likely getting a retheme as we mentioned last week. Parts of the track and structure have already been taken off the ride, and I’m curious to see what other work they will be doing to the ride.
And so do we! Check out the CraZanity opening report here!
