Happy Monday Park Journey Readers, we hope you had a fantastic weekend. Of if you're a 49ers fan like me, hope you're doing ok this morning (I am, thanks for asking).
Today we have an update from Six Flags Magic Mountain where we check out the rumored 2021 attraction location. We also finally have our last look at The Underground as the Speed Store is now officially open and the area appears to be completed. Let's head in for some fun!

It was a beautiful day at the park.
My normal plan was to come for a couple of hours to take my mind off the game, but as an added bonus, my friend Chris was making his first ever visit to the park. So it was nice to join in with Chris and his friend Blake for a bit and ride some rides!! I will also add, it's always nice to see parks through fresh eyes. We get kind of jaded on our own parks, but it's cool to see them through somebody who's never been.
After a quick ride on Full Throttle and Goliath, I noticed they have a queue now for the Fish & Chips. I'm sure they've been here for awhile, but honestly, with West Coast Racers I don't think I've actually been to this area of the park since November.
The park was delightfully empty.
Last week Screamscape reported a rumor about a possible 2021 attraction replacing Tidal Wave. A Mack Power Splash. But this one would have a loop.
So, we figured we'd look to see if we could find anything.
The rumor of Tidal Wave's demise has been going around for at least a decade, but honestly, given the prime real estate and the fact that it's hardly ever open, it may actually be true this time.
We'll definitely keep an eye out over the next few months. If they do build something here, and it's DC themed, hopefully they'll actually connect DC Universe and Metropolis.
Heading over to The Underground, it looks like the area is finally complete.
The "at Six Flags" is new since media day.
As is the sign for the Pacific Speedway. Looks nice.
Some cool posters that I forgot to take a closer look at as I was leaving.
The Speed Shop wasn't open for us during Media Day, but it was yesterday.
Here's a look at all of our videos of The Underground we've taken over the past few months, including a land overview, the Speed Shop from yesterday and even the Candy Shop from the first day it was open last year.
Some cool looking merchandise.
Not even sure Universal has Fast & Furious merchandise.
Cool looking shirt.
This also wasn't here for Media Day.
Have to admit, the crew was really crushing it. Dispatches were very fast.
Alright, that's gonna wrap it up. This is generally the time of year where our Six Flags Magic Mountain Updates ramp up, but since there is no construction going on this year I honestly can't tell you when our next one will be.
Probably in a month or so unless anything major pops up.
Thanks for reading as always!!
