We made our weekly trek to Hurricane Harbor this week for some waterpark fun so I made some time in our day to head over to Magic Mountain to check out what they are doing on Ninja.
Not much has changed since our update on Wednesday but you can start to see just how extensive the work they are doing is going to be.
We'd also like your opinion on our new watermark. Is it too much? Just right? Let us know in the comments below.
Ninja remains closed (no surprises there) but no walls have been placed in front of the entrance which hopefully means it will be open sooner rather than later.
Sorry for the water spot ... I was using the waterproof camera.
Not sure how well you can see it, but a couple of the trees are marked with red tape which probably means they are on their way out.
A look towards the area where they were cutting last week
You could hear some work going on behind the trees, but not cutting, actual "ride noises". Not sure if that means they are pulling out the 3rd train to work on it.
Since they weren't working today, Jet Stream was back open. I hadn't actually seen the lower queue building full in awhile.
The path between Apocalypse and Roaring Rapids was also open, probably due to them not working as well.
A look at some of the work being done from the other side.
Not sure if this was recently cleared or if it's been this way for awhile.
Some fence boards have been replaced, again, not sure if that's recent or not. Maybe they should just replace the entire thing while they are working in this area? This looks really tacky. I wouldn't even leave my own fence like this.
Guessing some trees on the other side of the path may be on their way out as well. It's sad because that's one of the things that makes Ninja great, but it's better than not having Ninja at all.
Just a couple of quick notes from the rest of the park.

The Full Throttle Plaza just got a nice new paint job. This had to have been just since Wednesday because I certainly didn't notice it the other day. It's nice to see little projects like this. They go a long way in keeping the park looking nice.
I'm no prude, but this shirt caught my eye. Apparently they've been at Six Flags Over Texas since at least 2011.
It was another beautiful day at Hurricane Harbor. No cartoons or music in the wave pool again. Starting to think it's a safety thing, which is totally understandable.
New signs about the "Buttons, Zippers and Rivets" policy at the park. This isn't a new policy, but with the two new slides, no surprise they are letting people know about it.
That's going to wrap it up for this update. Not sure when we'll have another update, but probably in the next week or two depending on what news we hear from the park.
