With it only being 5 days till the announcement of what’s coming to all the Six Flags Parks in 2017, I decided I would go to Six Flags Magic Mountain to bring you guys one last park update before the announcement on September 1! So with that said, let’s get this started!
The park brought back the old skeleton cage to hype up their annual Fright Fest event. It still looks pretty cool, but it needs an update. For starters, it should say that this year Fright Fest starts on September 17, not just “Fridays thru Sundays in October”.
X2 is closed down for annual maintenance for the time being. Not sure when it will open back up, but I would guess it will open before Fright Fest starts. There are some spotlights set up there for Fright Fest as well.
Viper is finally back to the way it’s supposed to be: AD-FREE! Also, there have been some rumors about Viper receiving a refurbishment in 2017 similar to the one Blue Hawk at Six Flags Over Georgia got this year. I personally would love to see Viper get a refurbishment next year. Of course, if it doesn’t, it’s still a good ride nonetheless. Do you think Viper will get a refurbishment in 2017? Tell us in the comments!
The park is (quite heavily, I might add) advertising for Suicide Squad: The Six Flags Experience. I touched on this a little in my last update. They added a whole new photo op next to Roaring Rapids in Tatsu, they also added the dates for Fright Fest, and the following text to it as well: “Suicide Squad: The Six Flags Experience”.
Up on Samurai Summit, Fright Fest preparations continue. I’m actually pretty excited to be able to go through Exile Hill again. While it might not be the most popular one, it’s certainly one of my favorites.
Poor Sky Tower. Sitting up there all alone. Hopefully the park will find someway to reopen it, as that’s one of the best things to do while you’re at the park.
The future site of the 2017 attraction (our money’s on a JL:BFM) hasn’t really changed much since our last update. I did have the pleasure to witness people working on it though. But, for the people that will take anything they can get, below you’ll find pictures of the current state of the 2017 attraction construction.
Now for some pretty cool news. The walls around the future site for Aftermath 2: Chaos Rising have been updated. They are now a nice, brown wood color. And it looks pretty good if you ask me. It’s definitely better than those steel walls they had before. What are your thoughts on the updated fences/walls? Tell us in the comments!
Apocalypse remains closed for re-tracking. Not much to say there. Hopefully it’ll open by the time Fright Fest starts.
The Summer of Games event is over. Did you participate in this event? If so, did you win anything? Put in down in that comment box!
Suicide Squad: The Six Flags Experience development is in high gear. I’m very excited to see what Six Flags does with this scare zone. But I’m sure I won’t be disappointed.
Hey, look! It’s Sky Screamer and Medusa from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom! 😛
Lets end this park update with a picture of The Movie District (closing Sept. 1st as they prepare for the new-for-2017 attraction)!
Thank you so much for checking out this park update! Make sure to get your last 2016 rides in on The Riddler’s Revenge and Tidal Wave! Hopefully this area looks a whole lot different come this time next year.
