Today was a crazy hot day at Six Flags Magic Mountain, but also one FILLED with coverage! Fright Fest seems ready to roll with even temporary lines installed, and Apocalypse is turned into a maze-line-ride experience! Take a look at all the crazy changes around the park, and the retheme of Apocalypse for this Fright Fest, in this update!
– 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 with the entrance of the park! Demon’s Door props have appeared. The fountain has yet to receive the flamethrower(s), they better not leave those out this year! The Maze Wristband Sales Center is being setup, though the prices are not yet shown at the booth. Non-Seasonpass Holders pay $20, Season Pass Holders pay $15, Gold Maze Passes are $35. The VooDoo Nights stage has been prepped! See the bag around the taller part of the structure, that’s one of the two flamethrowers y’all! 😀 (We like fire). The photo-op next to Pistachio Park has been turned into a #FrightFest one! On to one of the two new Scare Zones, TERRORtory Twisted! Where at the entrance… there’s a vague box… we’ll have to wait 6 days to figure out what it’s for. Not many props have been placed in the Scare Zone yet, but this electrical chair one looks pretty twisted already! 😀 On to the second new Scare Zone! Sinister Circuit! Where all the lights have now been installed, including this bow that wasn’t placed yet, last week. The bases look pretty cool, the barrels fit the theme. I’m very much looking forward to this new Scare Zone! The themation of the Wastelands Scare Zone continue. And the lines of rope and fences has been added for the popular Aftermath maze. Just in advanced readers, this maze is worth the wait! On top of Samurai Summit the line for Willoughby’s Resurrected has been placed. Same goes for the line of Garden of Darkness! 😀 The famous hearse has been placed on Exile hill, which is the Scare Zone on Samurai Summit. The Nightmares Scare Zone is adding some props, still missing a few things though, I feel. Regarding the only non-Fright Fest related thing in this article… The New Revolution’s progress hasn’t quite changed anything from last week, besides all the trains being off the tracks now. And last BUT DEFINITELY NOT LEAST, is The Shadows of Evil – The Ride! Six Flags Magic Mountain and Call of Duty Black Ops 3 present the temporary makeover of Apocalypse for this Fright Fest season, and it looks incredibly awesome already! Let’s take a look! There’s a great amount of theming, especially for this cause, many places in which scare actors can easily hide! On both sides of the entrance Black Ops-esque screens have been placed. You supposedly enter the Morg City (as stated on the Fright Fest 2015 park map). And they’re to escape the ‘scary encounters’. A lot of theming has been added for it actually. It even has some maze-esque aspects to it. For example the very first set of switchbacks has black sheets hanging around it. We’ll see what that means in 6 days. Ahead in line, there are several small sheds, that clearly host a hiding spot for actors! I wasn’t actually going to wait out the line (one-train operations), but in the 2nd and 3rd set of switchbacks there’s a lot more theming. In addition, there’s a ton of stage lighting everywhere, I really think this is going to turn out great! Try focus on the background, as you enter the pre-show buildings there’s more theming and walls and sheds, etc. So be aware that the line alone is quite an event this Fright Fest! We truly can’t wait for Shadows of Evil – The Ride!
