It was a hot summer day at Six Flags Magic Mountain with some rides operating one train, a few small changes around the park and a couple of quick notes! In addition, we’ve got some Goliath news, and there’s Fright Fest promotion going on already!
Let’s start with the new Fright Fest promotion on the entry plaza between Six Flags Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor. The park seems to be advertising it earlier this year, which leads me to believe that after last year’s huge Fright Fest success, they may make this year’s Fright Fest significantly larger and better as well. For those who haven’t been to Fright Fest recently, the last 2 years marked insane growth for the event, and it’s stepping up its game rapidly. Wonderful to see.
There’s plenty of 4th of July sort of decoration going up around the main gate. It was pretty crowded inside, though staff on most rides seemed to be working hard on getting the guests on and off, lots of quick moving lines.
The new soccer game next to Tatsu has opened, across from it performances at Katy’s Kettle have started for the season.
Now, the recent word… Goliath is expected to reopen either towards the end of the month, or a bit later, but presumably before August. Installment of the new chain continued today.
Rides that are open, but not very welcoming are those operating one train. We recently heard Riddler’s Revenge returned to two train operations, though that wasn’t the case when we were at the park today. One train, long lines. Ninja is down to one train still, I really thought older Arrow trains wouldn’t have to be out for months to be refurbished, but it seems as if the park’s maintenance is lagging recently. Superman: Escape from Krypton was running both sides a couple of weeks ago, but ever since, the red side hasn’t run. It’s a shame, because with summer crowds the line for this launcher gets incredibly long.
Scream!, though running two trains, was dispatching at a nice rate today, still loving the repaint. In fact, a lot of the General Public seems to believe the ride is brand new, and that they once rode a different coaster in this area. Finally the attention and talk this ride receives. 😀 And as if my post from a few weeks ago helped, the park has replaced the blue screens that are attached to the fences around Scream!’s exit. Very nice and fresh 😛
It was good to see a very long Full Throttle line move very fast to be 45 minutes only, the ride had four operators check restraints, which actually significantly sped up the dispatches.
That was it for this quick Six Flags Magic Mountain Update, more in the near future!
