Last Friday we were invited out to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom as the park unveiled their newest coaster, Sidewinder Safari! While the coaster itself is one you may see at a few different parks, the amount of themeing and care they've done on the queue and surrounding area is kind of awesome.
This is a great addition to the park! Check out Andrew and Stephen's full update below.

Happy Tuesday that feels like a Monday! Hope you all had a great long holiday weekend, and if you visited any parks you brought your patience with you. We made a quick stop at Magic Mountain on Friday before the weekend crowds showed up, only to see that it was Middle School day in the park. Needless to say, this was the shortest visit I've made to the park since they reopened last year. I think I was at the park for about 45 minutes tops.
But that was enough time to get some pics and video of what's going on around the park, and use my skip the line pass on Full Throttle.
I also apologize for the brightness of the pics/video. It was overcast and very bright and not the best day to get pics. Everything looks washed out. Oh well. It happens. =)
Let's get into the update!

I know we'd been discussing a July 4th opening, and they could technically still make it, but it will be close. We had heard track was to be completed by the end of May, that's obviously not happening. Even if it's done by the end of this week, that leaves barely a month to finish if they're hoping for July 4th. I just don't see it happening. Right now I'd say a mid-July opening. But obviously we'll update you all if we hear any different.
