This past weekend we headed out to Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Magic Mountain! But of course, before checking out all the lights and stuffing our faces, we had to peek in at the progress on Wonder Woman Flight of Courage and the Tatsu repaint!

Here's the HollyRock playlist for you all on Spotify. I could not find one song, "Home for the holidays" by Vera Lynn.
Happy November everybody and welcome to our first "official" update for Wonder Woman: Flight of Courage at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
Sure, we've known for awhile what coaster is actually coming to the park, but now it's officially official and we can stop referring to it as "2022 Coaster". That's kind of fun.
We've got a lot of great pics and video to share, so let's get right into it!

I rode X2 and Tatsu for the first time since 2019, and I had some thoughts. You can see our tweet from Friday below. But the gist is, I'm just not a fan of either of these rides. I know I've talked about this before, and I keep waiting to "get it". But I don't think I ever will.
In fact, riding both of these rides pretty much took me out for the remainder of the day. I only rode Superman after this at SFMM and later in the day at Unviersal I only did the Studio Tour. Just something about these two rides in particular don't agree with me. Yet I can ride Twisted Colossus, Batman, Riddlers, Full Throttle, Goliath, etc all day. Go figure.
It's now getting into the final week of the 2021 Halloween season. In some ways it seems like it's been going on for a long time, in other ways it seems like it just began. It's been a phenomenal season and this week we have so many events to visit or revisit.
So it was last Friday after doing some Santa Clarita Valley Home Haunts that we found ourselves at Fright Fest for our last visit of the 2021 season. In many ways it's been a weird season for not just Fright Fest, but a lot of events. But we're so happy to say that the event is firing on all cylinders as they close out their season.
Visiting on a Friday is definitely a different crowd/vibe than visiting on a Saturday, and we HIGHLY recommend it. Not a lot of crowds, or teenager groups just wandering around trying to "scare" the actors. Just a really fun night all the way around. Let's head right in and get to the pics!

Thanks Fright Fest for another great season, they really bring it every night. And that's to be commended given the stresses of the 2021 season.
I'll be back at the park on Friday during the day for a proper "park update", it's been awhile, so look forward to that. This week we'll be visiting Halloween events on Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat and Sun. So stay tuned!
The Tallest and Longest Single-Rail Coaster on the Planet Will Debut at The Thrill Capital of the World Summer 2022
VALENCIA, California — October 21, 2021 — Six Flags Magic Mountain, the undisputed “Thrill Capital of the World,” in partnership with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and DC, today unveiled plans to add yet another record-breaking coaster--WONDER WOMAN™ Flight of Courage—to its unparalleled thrill ride lineup. Six Flags Magic Mountain’s record 20th roller coaster—the most at any theme park in the world—will debut as the tallest and longest single-rail coaster on the planet where riders will fly over 3,300 feet of track, towering 13 stories and soaring at speeds up to 58 miles-per-hour. The new coaster will be located in the six-acre DC UNIVERSE™ area of the park, which will be expanded and entirely remodeled to include a new, innovative restaurant and bar experience, plus retail locations featuring exclusive DC branded merchandise.
“This is an historic milestone for our park as we introduce the latest addition to our unrivaled coaster dynasty, WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage. Not only is this a record-breaking single-rail coaster, it brings Six Flags Magic Mountain’s coaster count to an unprecedented twenty, the most in the world,” said Park President Don McCoy. “Our partnership with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment makes this accomplishment even more exciting, as we integrate the legacy of an iconic DC Super Hero into the theming of the ride. Additionally, we are creating a more innovative guest experience by redesigning one of our most popular areas, DC UNIVERSE, which will become the home of WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage,” added McCoy.
WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage exemplifies the Super Hero’s traits of strength and speed—showcasing the legacy of Wonder Woman herself. As guests enter the ride queue, influenced by Greek architecture and featuring tropical landscaping, they will be immersed in the story of her life and how she obtained her super powers. Riders will join forces with Wonder Woman in the fight for truth, justice, and equality, to embark on an incredible journey of heroic feats, propelling through dives, banks, rolls, and turns designed to challenge the bravest of thrill seekers.
Key features of WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage include:
The newly-themed DC UNIVERSE™ area also includes the popular BATMAN™ The Ride and several other DC themed rides.
