Today we headed out to Six Flags Magic Mountain to take in an offseason weekday and look at the progress on Justice League and Metropolis.
We'll also take a look at what's going on over at Hurricane Harbor which opens soon.

From up on top of the hill you can see the new colors on Riddlers, well at least the track. The lighter shade is NOT the final color of the supports, that's just the primer.
It's going to be so nice to see this ride shiny and chrome again.
Through the trees you can see a bit of the final color of the supports. They definitely aren't as bright as they looked in the concept art.
Old and new. Much prefer the new.
The loop is staying green. Some reports we saw over the weekend indicated they were going to paint it yellow, but glad they went this way. You can see the final color of the supports on the right side of the loop.
One tidbit we did learn from the park is that there will be no additional hard hat tours of the ride or metropolis. This likely means they are very far along on the ride and want to keep the surprises a surprise.
A few other things will be coming from the park soon and we think you are going to like it but we've been sworn to secrecy.
As you can see here they are starting to build the entry into the building.
Some old, some new. It's going to be great to see the new look of this area.
Looks like JB's is getting ready for it's makeover.
Wanted to also touch on a couple of things regarding the delay of this version of Justice League:
So yes, while it sucks it's not open yet, SFMM is a year-round park and the hidden blessing in this is that they won't be going head to head with Guardians opening.
Moving on from Metropolis, since we were actually just taking it easy in the park today we noticed some new things that we probably missed on previous visits.
Looks like the Superman logo got some fresh paint recently. Weird spot for that trash can though.
Some new tables and planters just outside of Jet Stream. This will be nice overflow seating for the new food area.
All set for Grad Nite. The first one is tonight.
We've also been remiss in taking a look at Hurricane Harbor which opens for the season on Memorial Weekend.
The family raft ride got a new coat of paint.
And it looks like it's getting some new fancy rafts to match. Love little things like this that normally don't get noticed.
Hoping for a nice Hurricane Harbor expansion one of these years. Some of the original slides are in need of replacing.
Alright, that's going to wrap it up, we hope you enjoyed the update. Not sure when we'll have another update, just depends on a few things going on over the next couple of weeks.
Also, if you can't wait to see what Justice League is going to look like (minus the couple of surprises in the SFMM version) be sure to check out our Media Day Coverage of Justice League at Six Flags Over Georgia.
