Today we have a great update from Six Flags Magic Mountain as we continue to take a look at the progress of the new Boardwalk area.
We also have some amazing pictures around the park from Matt who took advantage of the very slow weekday to get some amazing pictures. If you'd like to purchase any of the pictures here or any other of Matt's amazing pictures, check them out here.

Good Morning from Magic Mountain!
Full Throttle is still running amazing, although we wouldn't be surprised to see it go down for a refurb in the very near future.
Some amazing pics of Full Throttle in action
Amazing shot Matt!!
Speaking of refurbs, the Screampunk District just got a fresh coat of paint on the swirly clock thing on the ground.
Twisted Colossus was back to running 3 trains as the blue train came back from refurb recently
Flash ... aaa'aaa. Oh wait, wrong Flash.
Still one of our favorite inverts
Oh yeah, let's see what's going on in the new Boardwalk area.
Many of the games are now behind walls.
Lots of ground clearing has been done
Sandblasters are now closed so unfortunately we can't go up and get pictures of the construction site now.
But we are super excited to see this get a nice refurb.
Scrambler is also getting some work done
Some more awesome black and white pics
Apparently the Jet Stream boats are in the process of getting a nice paint job, hopefully the flume gets some MUCH needed work done. It was leaking like crazy during our last visit.
The New Revolution is still running without VR ... we hope it stays this way
Legacy of Arrow ...
Alright everybody, that's it for today's update. We hope you enjoyed!!
Just a quick note, as you may have heard, YouTube has changed their monetization guidelines and it's going to impact a lot of smaller/medium sized sites like us. Basically unless you get a certain amount of views/subscribers you are no longer able to monetize your videos.
SO if you wouldn't mind giving us a quick subscribe, that would be awesome. We EASILY meet the hours but for some reason the subscribers on your channel have never taken off.
If we are no longer able to monetize on YouTube we have explored a few other options for our video content, including hosting it on the site. Stay tuned!!
Considering the last time we did a "Magic Mountain Update" other than Media events was last May we figured it was way past time to head up to the park and see what's going on.
So here we go!!

In celebration of being open 365 days in 2018, the park got a new sign.
Lots of ground clearing going on all around the park. In the front for what is probably more office buildings, in the back for Newhall Ranch.
How long until people start complaining about noise from the park?
Please Neal, keep it this way!!
Hey Viper!!! (had a really great ride on it today)
It was a gorgeous day at the park
Let's take a look at CraZanity progress
Honestly not a lot to report, but there is one tiny piece of Metro track back there
Should start seeing some progress soon
Lots and lots of walls
A peek through the wall
Goliath seemed to be having some issues, train was stuck at the top of the hill all day
One last shot before heading out
We had a really great morning at the park, not busy at all.
Be sure to take advantage of the operating days during this time of year, during the week you should pretty much have the park to yourself.
Don't you just love waking up to early Christmas presents?
Well today was one of those mornings as our good friend Cliff sent us these pictures from Six Flags Mexico where Wonder Woman has definitely arrived on site!!
We hope you enjoy!!

Unfortunately the trains are pretty hidden.
