Last weekend was the kick-off of Fright Fest 2018 at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
With 3 new mazes, 2 new scare zones and of course, a brand new ride to show off, the event was simply amazing.
One of the new mazes was definitely one of our favorites of the year so far. Let's head into the Mountain.

We've been showing off our videos all week on social media, so instead let's look at some pictures first. We decided to put them in glorious slideshow mode to make it easier to view. =)
This right here is probably one of our most favorite videos we've ever posted on the site. And with over 100 Halloween Videos and 100 POV videos, that's saying A LOT!!
We'll be getting more scare zone action on repeat trips to Fright Fest, but they are always amazing here.
Reds Revenge was amazing, best it's ever been!!
The all new Condemned had twists and turns galore!!
And last but certainly not least, Sewer of Souls was fantastic!!
Easily going to win the "Best year to year maze upgrade" award. (It's legit, we promise)
And if that wasn't enough, we'll leave you with an all new West Coast Racers update.
Alright all, that's going to wrap it up for our first Fright Fest visit of 2018, it won't be our last!!!
A couple of weeks back, Renee and Andrew headed to Texas for a fun weekend, which meant stops at both Six Flags Fiesta Texas and ZDT's.
Obviously, one of the highlights of the trip was the all new RMC Coaster, Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster.

Ready for a Six Flags day!
Rope dropped it over to Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster.
First train of the day on Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman is so fun! Too bad lines will be long the rest of the day, otherwise I would definitely love to ride again.
I need a drink after this. And some Tylenol.
Another great RMC coaster, Iron Rattler. A little on the short side but super fun!
These sound amazing on a hot day in Texas... if this place was actually open.
Pickle on the rocks, anyone?
Going for a ride on Goliath!
Hasta La Vista, Fiesta Texas ! On to the next Texas Adventure!
Not too far from San Antonio, we stopped in Seguin, TX at ZDT Amusement Park for their unique Switchback coaster.
This past weekend we headed out to Six Flags Magic Mountain to take a look at the progress on Project 2019 (which will be announced in just over 2 weeks), Fright Fest Prep (which begins next month if you can believe it) and of course a few rides on CraZanity.
Let's head into the park!!

Like most of our recent updates, you can have your update in picture or video form.
Ops on CraZanity have improved TREMENDOUSLY since opening, averaging just a few minutes between dispatching.
And the ride is of course amazing. And seems to be VERY popular. Hopefully this is a good sign for more flat rides in the future.
They've also added some fences around the landscaping to keep people out. I'd imagine more plants will be added here once the summer months are over.
Let's head over into the soon to be extinct, Cyclone Bay.
The park has begun teasing the 2019 attraction, lots of things here definitely support some of the rumors going around about the ride.
Apocalypse is down for the count, a lot of track has been removed already.
The last time you rode this ride as Apocalypse was the last time you rode this ride as Apocalypse. =)
Bye Cyclone Bay, wish we could say you'll be missed but ...
Lots of prep work being done for the new attraction and development behind the park.
The park is already promoting Fright Fest
The facade for Sewer of Souls is looking amazing. Can't wait to see inside.
The past few re-themes of this maze have been merely cosmetic, that does not seem to be the case this time.
Keep out ... for now.
And lastly, a new air conditioner was installed on the Orient, err, Helpful Honda Express. It's a Big'un.
Alright everybody, that's gonna wrap it up. We hope you enjoyed.
Be sure to check back tomorrow as we'll have the full announcements from Canada's Wonderland and their 2019 attraction.
