Today we're back at Six Flags Magic Mountain for another look at Metropolis and Justice League Battle For Metropolis.
Also, Apocalypse finally reopened this weekend after a lengthy refubishment and re-tracking. Did it help? Read on below.

Here we are back in Metropolis, home of Tidal Wave?
Work has begun on Ace O' Clubs
Guessing we'll start seeing more visible work going on outside
Can't wait to see this done, guessing lots of great stuff is going on inside
It's going to look so great when it's all done
Repainting of Riddlers has begun
Old and new ... wish it was sunnier so you could see the difference better. I do like the green, haven't seen any of the new support color yet.
As we were walking by they were opening Apocalypse. You can see them removing the sign here.
It's great to see this ride back in action
So did the re-tracking help? Yes and no.
The parts that were re-tracked are great. Smooth and fun. They did re-track the worst parts of the ride so that's awesome. Still there are a few parts that didn't get re-tracked and it would have been nice to see the entire ride get a re-track. We're hoping this is a multi-year process and the ride will come back down next offseason for more work to bring it back to where it was on opening day.
We can definitely see the reason why the park wants to get the ride open for the busy Summer season.
The park is advertising a couple of movies, one of them would make an AMAZING Fright Fest maze. We'll let you guess which one.
They are also preparing for their Grad Nite festivities.
Swashbuckler is also closed for a refurbishment. Don't think there's any other ride at this park that get's as much refurbishment as Swashbuckler.
Drop of Doom was closed due to high winds and sadly not to move the VR off of Revolution and onto the drop ride like some other Six Flags parks.
And lastly, we'll leave you with some Twisted Colossus pictures, because why not.
