SFMM Justice League Update #8
Today we've got a quick update from Six Flags Magic Mountain where we'll be taking a look at the progress on Justice League.
Apocalypse is also still undergoing some major re-tracking that looks to be more extensive than first believed.

As you can see, it was a pretty busy day (this was taken at around 1:00pm).
Seriously, if you can get away on a weekday to visit the park the next 4-5 weeks do it.
They've finally added some signs to keep people off of the bus route, that they weren't paying attention to.
Moving inside the park, they are still working on Justice League (obviously).
Most of the work is probably going on inside right now. At least one would hope.
Most of the remodeled food locations have opened and look great.
Apparently we missed the re-paint of Studio 6F and Gold Rusher's station that took place a couple of months ago. Oops.
The new entrance for Tidal Wave is done, going to be interesting how the route the line and if they make one long switch back in the old queue.
(still think this is more work than just making some new DC signs, but we aren't in the theme park business)
A look at the rest of Metropolis, Apparently Riddlers got pressure-washed last week so painting should be starting soon, if it hasn't already.
No work yet on JB's, but new tables are there.
Moving on to Apocalypse, the last word we got from the park was they were hoping the ride would reopen on Easter Weekend. Obviously that didn't happen so we're hoping they decided to re-track more of the ride. Originally it was only supposed to be a couple hundred feet of track.
It does appear some work is going on here at the final turn around.
And it definitely looks like some work has been done to the first turn around and drop.
Alright, that's going to wrap it up for this update, we hope you enjoyed.
We've been asked a couple of times when Justice League is going to open, we have no clue. At this point our best guess would be sometime in June (probably when we're in Texas for CoasterCon lol).
Looks like a lot more than a couple hundred feet of Apocalypse got retracked. Ideally, the only parts of the ride that wouldn't need retracking would be the brake run at the end, the station area, and maybe not the lift hill. But Apocalypse is really a fairly short ride, so they might as well do it all. That way it'll have all new track and won't need to be retracked for at least two or three years...

According to some pics posted yesterday by the company doing the work on Apocalypse, they are done with the area's they are re-tracking. So unless they really hauled ass from Thursday to yesterday it wasn't the full ride. We'll try and find out when it's going to open.
