Last weekend we were invited out to experience Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Magic Mountain. We also got a preview of "Taste of Holiday in the Park" which begins December 14th.
And of course, we took some time to get a West Coast Racers update now that the ride is testing.

Welcome to a damp Holiday in the Park!
The park was not busy due to the weather which meant we got to say hi to our friend Bugs!!
We first headed back to see if West Coast Racers was tesing
The rest of the area is starting to come together a bit, still hoping for some more shade.
The new Coaster Candy store had just opened the day of our visit, and looks great.
Holiday in the Park
Prior to setting out to see the lights, we got a preview of Taste of Holiday in the Park
Everything was REALLY good, we can't wait to head back and try more.
Some of the HITP merchandise
Be sure to buy a bear, and they'll give one to a local charity. We love this.
SANTA!! I know him!!
The popular S'mores stations are back.
Boo, no spider. =)
Lots of awesome characters all around the park
The big globes of Merry Lane are back!
The front of the park looked great with the ground wet from the rain
Love this picture
Holiday In The Park continues through January 5th, you can find more information about the event here.
Today we headed up to Six Flags Magic Mountain for our first "park" update in a few months. Between vacations, Fright Fest and everything else it's been kind of hard to get up for a daytime visit. Plus with Apocalypse closed it was kind of getting repetitive since we couldn't see more of the ride.
But not today!! Not only was the back area open, but more of the area is starting to take shape. We have a LOT to get to today, so let's get to it!!

Early entry FTW!!
Hey Tatsu, we see you hiding back there.
DE-NIED!! Well, hope you enjoyed the update!!!
Actually, the area was closed while Apocalypse was still testing. We had to come back later.
Sling Shot is open as well
Ready to head Underground?
Video update and pics continuing below
The station is really starting to take shape
It's gonna be awesome to see trains flying overhead in all directions
And lots of them!
Twisty stuff all over the place
More of the station
The rest of the area is, well, not done. Crossing our fingers they don't leave it like this.
There were supposed to be a lot more planters than two.
Launch and electrical stuff.
Some were expecting testing to start tomorrow, don't see that happening, but it should happen very soon.
Twin Charged Tacos is open!!
Street Tacos and Sopes.
Would have greatly preferred more Coke Freestyle.
But it looks quite nice inside.
The restrooms are also open, very nice but no pics inside. Because that's just creepy.
An overhead view from Samurai Summit.
This is as far as you can get for now.
Holiday in the Park
The park is preparing for Holiday In The Park, which begins in (checks calendar), 13 days? Didn't Fright Fest JUST end?
Merch already available in the stores.
Including, Christmas Poop Hats? I mean, what did you eat!?!?!
The globes are back in Metropolis.
Lots of lights strung up for Rockin' Universe.
Around The Park
A few random odd's and end's from around the rest of the park.
Revolution is currently running 1 train. The other train is on the transfer track. Not sure if it's getting pulled off or if it's coming back soon.
Some Fright Fest props are still waiting to get put away for the winter.
Superman (and Lex Luthor) are currently closed.
More Fright Fest stuff lingering. They should do a "dark Christmas" theme in this area. =)
Alrighty, that's going to wrap it up. We'll obviously be keeping our eyes on West Coast Racers over the next couple of weeks for testing and an opening date. As soon as we know, you will too!!
Today we continue our look at Holiday Events for 2018 at Holiday In The Park at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
Just a few short weeks after the fogs and screams of Fright Fest we are greeted with snow and lights as far as the eye can see. This years event has two new area's and lots of great food to try when their Taste of the Holidays food festival begins on December 15th. We will definitely be back for that!!

Welcome to Holiday In The Park!!
Our first stop was to the Metro Park Pub to check out some of the food coming for Taste of the Holidays!!
First up was this turkey wrap thing, which I loved!
Who doesn't like some ribs?
Both the Slider and Cherry Pie Nachos were fantastic
After stuffing our faces for a bit, we headed out to the all new area in the park, Merry Lane. (Don't worry, more food pics are below)
We absolutely LOVED this new area, some great photo ops and snow!!
We've already pitched the idea that they should bring these back for Fright Fest next year, but have them be Jack O' Lanterns.
You can even go inside some of the bulbs!!
Don't miss our Holiday In The Park Video!!
It's nice to see them using the lighting on Justice League to fit the area.
We also headed over to one of our favorites, Rockin' Universe.
This was seriously the only pic we took, but we have lots of video of the area above.
Another one of our favorite area's. So different, and that's amazing.
Giant walking Candy Cane!!
Santa's Cottage has moved from up near Tatsu to down by Bugs Bunny World. A much better location.
The next two pics show how a photo is made!! Lol.
Send a letter to Santa!!
Mrs. Claus will make sure all of your letters get delivered on time.
Full Throttle Nights are back!!
The front of the park always looks spectacular for the holidays
Here's our Construction Update!! =)
Always one of our favorite area's of the park
Oh, we promised you some more food pics didn't we!!
Root Beer Cake!!!
Some kind of pudding thing with a cookie thing on the bottom
It was yummy
More of the great food coming to Taste of the Holidays including a Guinness Sloppy Joe and a Prosciutto Mac and Cheese!!
Rice Pudding and Elote!!
Last and most definitely not least, we wanted to share this little guy.
