Six Flags Magic Mountain Update – March 25, 2018

Alexander: Hello again! It’s been about 18hrs since our last Six Flags Magic Mountain update, but honestly there’s always something new to touch on.

Sean and I went back to the park today so that he could check out DC SUPER HEROES Drop of Doom VR (which I was happy to do a 2nd time; Sean is impressed with the experience as well), plus to cover a few more details of changes happening around the park.

– 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 Thank you!

A noticeable change coming to Six Flags Magic Mountin is the orangification of Lightning Falls, three of Hurricane Harbor’s tube slides.

The formerly all-white slides will add to the water park’s growing curb appeal.

Metro Park Pub now has awnings over the bar to give drinkers some shelter from the sun.

Another day, another ride on the much-missed Jet Stream!

Staff members now instruct guests to “face forward and hold on” as the boats crest the lift hill. Heightened safety measures inspired by Timber Mountain Log Ride at Knott’s Berry Farm, perhaps?

Jet Stream seems to have a problem with boats stalling in the turn table.  Gave me plenty of time for Ninja pics, however.

New signage.

Many of the Jet Stream boats have been restored, but some still look a bit rough. We’re hoping that the ride’s station and queue area are next in line for some TLC.

Today we wandered into the Coaster Candy Kitchen, where we noticed guests enjoying a view of Magic Mountain’s fresh candy-making process. It’s such a cute, old school thing to do and we’re glad the park still has this set up. 

Helpful Honda Express seemed to be getting some work done today. Hopefully it’ll be open again soon. 

It’s so great to see Jet Stream running again. Haven’t taken this shot since before it closed for refurbishment; the surrounding foliage seems to be enjoying the wet weather we’ve been having. 

Jet Stream’s new tunnel and freshly painted upper flume look amazing! So happy that the park cares about this classic ride. 

That concludes our mini Magic Mountain update! Join us again soon for a visit to Knott’s Berry Farm’s Boysenberry Festival for some great food and (FINALLY) some rides on Xcelerator!

  1. Not sure who it was that was telling you guys face forward and hang on at the top of the lift, I can tell you firsthand that we were never told to tell guests that at the top of the lift
