Last weekend was also the kick-off of Fright Fest at Six Flags Magic Mountain, which happened to fall on one of the hottest days of the year. We also managed to get some construction pics of West Coast Racers and take a ride on the newly reopened Apocalypse.
Let's head in for some fun.

Demon's Door, where you can get your mazes passes as well.
I think we saw more maze purchase locations this year than any other year, which is a good thing.
Some West Coast Racers pics and video, the track looks to be mostly done, the station is getting some work and the buildings are getting some nice paint. Hopefully testing will be starting soon.
This video also features some of the updated queue for Apocalypse.
New fence, no lookie for you!!
The Preview Center was also closed
Sadly we didn't know at this time that Apocalypse was open otherwise we would have gotten some pics and video from the other side. Next time!!
Oh, and I know that some people thought we didn't know what we were talking about a few weeks back when we said deconstruction of Green Lantern would begin soon ...
This sign has been up here for awhile, but it's funny now. =)
The park set up a nice media reception with snacks, drinks and more.
Time to get unleashed
It was CROWDED!!
The coffin challenge was still going strong, despite the heat
Apocalypse was back open, it wasn't "2009 good", but it was really good and a definite improvement.
The queue got some nice new upgrades
Aftermath 2 was back, I actually got taken on a different path than I've been on before (as you'll see in the video)
Willoughby's is also back, with a couple of new effects
One of our favorite scare zones at any park.
One tip for visitors: Please don't turn on your phone flashlights in scarezones, especially THIS scare zone. You're ruining it.
CondAmned was back with a slightly different name change.
Sadly towards 10pm I wasn't feeling all that great due to the heat so I ducked out before I got to experience all that the event had to offer. I don't deal well with that kind of heat.
So we will be back, and soon to finish our Fright Fest experience. We hope you enjoyed this first look.
Be sure to head out to the event, you can find all of the info here.
