Six Flags Magic Mountain is opened daily from today on, so it was their last shot to make some big changes last week. Let’s take a look at what they’ve done so far. This update includes Screampunk District coverage, 2015 park maps, and much more!
– Recently our images have popped up on other sites and forums, awesome that our coverage spreads, not so awesome that no one 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! –
Let’s start off on the parking lot… I’m still astonished to see this security post empty very often, and that’s when the entire third lot is filled. I mean, guests pay the ridiculous amount of $20 to park their car on the Six Flags Magic Mountain Parking Lot, and security doesn’t even place a person in this post… Something the park can definitely improve upon. Speaking of improvements, the park added wheelchair ramps to the bus-stop next to Handicap Parking, and at the front of the park.
Getting inside the park, new poles are located right inside the gates. They look as if they could be for speakers, or for sun screens. Valencia Falls (main-gate waterfalls) is still not turned on. The fountain is working though.
Speaking of waterfalls, Roaring Rapids was meant to open last weekend, but still remains closed. Whistlestop Train on the other hand has reopened. Here’s a quick shot of the Temple Rapids refurbishment at Hurricane Harbor. The entire pool on top of the tower, the station, has been taken out.
I noticed how faded the Full Throttle building has become. But… I also noticed how amazingly fresh the Full Throttle Plaza looks after another repaint!
The 2015 Season has officially begun, as the park’s now open every day! And that meant… that the 2015 park maps were available in the park! Tried getting a cool artsy shot with six flags, Tatsu and Revolution in the background. I must say, I’m not disappointed! For more info on the 2015 map, with the downloadable version, and an in-depth analysis, click here!
Let me hear you Scream! Speaking of Scream! and the Screampunk District. All of Scream! has been repainted! Now the station is being painted! (Such as the railings, stairs, etc) I can’t but admire the new fresh look. It was such a necessity, and the ride looks a hundred times better. Ahh! They were constructing the Top Gun Stall on Twisted Colossus! More on that later! (My picture came out very bad, so I used a picture from Thrill Capital Insider’s FB page, credit goes to them). Here’s the new Gearworks Theater and its fresh looking repaint!
Though I don’t really play any games, and I usually detest ads on rides… Goliath in this case has a very cool promotional advertising thing going on! The entrance has a huge black dragon (I assume it’s a dragon). With some added rocks, and in the vegetation, it looks like it’s really part of it! And it looks fantastic! (PLEASE KEEP THE DRAGON). Upon return to the station, there’s a message related to the game they’re advertising. There are some banners and ads throughout the line. Though I’m not a fan of it, guests seemed to be entertained by them. One train that operates remains to be the original yellow. Though the other train is plastered in black dragon like stickers, making the train look quite awesome. I don’t have very good shots, so bare with me.
