Happy Thanksgiving Eve everybody, and welcome to our first Six Flags Magic Mountain update since, checks calendar, February. Wow.
This is definitely the longest we've ever gone between updates from the park, but we've got a great one for you today. We've now experienced Holiday In The Park Drive-Thru experience twice, and we absolutely love it.
Below are some pics from Saturday and last night, and a video drive-through from Saturday. We also did a live-stream last night which was a lot of fun, even if Mariah Carey stole all of our ad revenue.
Let's get to the fun!

Hi X2 ... hope we get to ride you soon!
The entrance to the park, we aren't going in this way.
Remember, you must have a reservation to drive through the park!
You start off going through the employee entrance.
Video from our experience on Saturday. I think it's time for a new GoPro, ours is 6 years old and it shows. But still, hope you enjoy! We enjoyed putting this together.
Hello old friend. I would say the chances of this being set up in the "Bus Parking" section of the Underground are very high once the park reopens.
Let's head in for some holiday fun!
You start off in Rockin' Universe!
And them move through the Boardwalk. CraZanity was running, and I really did want to jump out for a ride!
Merry Lane looking as festive as ever!
A few things in The Underground, and some cool cars!
All of the performers were great, distanced and wearing masks!
These LED lights need to stay on the Ninja supports! Who's with me!?!?
Always loved this area of the park during the holidays
Some new characters on the hill heading towards Viper
Chances that these penguins are from Astroworld and have been sitting in storage for 16 years? =)
You really do drive through the entire park (except Samurai Summit)
Hi Sylvester!!! We miss you!!!
Our favorite Mrs. Claus. Hope her and her sister Lurane, Lorraine are doing well. =)
Likewise, hope these LED lights on Goliath remain.
Somebody had some fun as Lex Luthor is indeed Jewish (it's canon, we checked)
SANTA! I know him!!
We had an absolutely wonderful time at Holiday In The Park, and we'll be back for sure. It's a totally stress-free evening of fun. The entire experience takes about 40 minutes and the line to get in has been about 25-40 minutes, which isn't bad at all.
Plus, you get to drive through a theme park. How awesome is that?!?!
Have you experienced the Holiday In The Park Drive-Thru experience? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Welcome to a special Throwback Thursday!
For this (and future) Throwback updates, we're going to pretend it's not 2020, and treat this just like we would any update that we would do.
So welcome back to Six Flags Magic Mountain exactly 9 years ago today!

Welcome to Magic Mountain. A few holiday decorations are starting to show up around the park.
It was a beautifully overcast day at the park
Fall has definitely arrived at Magic Mountain. This is easily my favorite time of year to visit.
Roaring Rapids is closed for it's yearly refurbishment.
The Sky Tower was open so I was able to head up and get some pics of the Deja Vu removal.
The entire back side of the park is closed while they remove the coaster and do some work on the surrounding area.
Parts of the coaster are sitting out back ready to be shipped off to New England.
Sad to see this ride go, but our loss is New England's gain.
A look down at the recently opened Superman Escape from Krypton, and the recently closed Log Jammer which closed down just a few weeks ago on Halloween.
No portions of the flume have been removed yet, but the lake has been drained.
We see you Gold Rusher!
Lots of buses in the lot today
More of the colors of fall at the park. Some remnants of the metro are still here, rumors are that the rest of the track will be removed soon.
Tidal Wave is also closed for it's yearly refurbishment.
Looks like Buccaneer is getting some TLC this off-season.
Looks to be a pretty extensive rehab.
Love it when parks take the time to take care of their classic rides.
You can see a bit more of the Metro track peeking out through the trees.
The final splashdown of Log Jammer is still there. It will be interesting to see how much this area changes over the next year or so.
Wonder if the restaurant will reopen when the new ride arrives?
That's going to wrap it up for this update! We're still waiting to see what's going to be announced for the former Log Jammer spot (or what's going to replace Deja Vu). Can't wait to hear!!
