Today we were back at Six Flags Magic Mountain for a bit of pre Super-Bowl fun as well as to take a look at The New Revolution.
It's been a few weeks since our last update so we have quite a bit to get to today.
Before we get started with the update, don't forget that tickets to our event on June 5 are NOW ON SALE!! The event features ERT on The New Revolution, food, tours and much more all for just $55.

Alright, let's get on with the update.
As you can see, lots of painting has been going on since our last update, and the parts that have been painted look amazing.
The loop has yet to be painted.
Primer added to the bottom of the supports
Some of the completed parts of the ride, it looks great.
It's nice to see this ride being restored to it's former glory.
The top of the 3rd drop.
Moving around back to where the Chupacabra maze was ... some new paths are being drawn out. Not sure if this is for the queue or perhaps for Flash Pass.
Would be interesting if they moved the entrance back to this side.
The station looks great with it's new colors and roof.
The old ride panel is completely gone
No paint on the lift hill yet.
You can see on the bottom of the lift just how badly the ride needed paint.
This will be painted by the time we do our next update.
Coming down the second hill
Up the hill on the backside of the ride, most of this area has been painted.
Really shows how badly Tatsu needs to be painted.
Per our resident expert RD these are Velocity Magnets (sorry for not being able to zoom in more).
Back towards the front, the portion after the loop is still waiting to get painted
This is going to look so amazing when it's all done.
We got a few questions during our Periscope while we were at the park regarding opening dates. We have yet to hear anything official from the park. All we can say is it will be open by June 5. So if you are making travel plans to come ride, you are safe to make plans and come to our event. (shameless plug)
Along with The New Revolution, some of the other rides in the area are getting some TLC.
It's awesome to see the Grand Carousel get some work. Be sure to ride it when it reopens.
They are promoting RollerCoaster Tycoon World. Let's hope we actually get to play it soon.
The old Dolphin/Diving/Action Show / Aftermath area is still being demolished.
Don't think there was Stroller Parking for Aftermath, and can't remember when the last time there was a show in here. So this sign has been here awhile.
There'some kind of small excavator/crane in there
It'll be interesting to see what becomes of this area of the park.
Some new markers with numbers have shown up back in Cyclone bay. Let the speculation begin. =)
Hmmm, maybe some kind of Michael Jordan themed coaster?
26, 25, 24, 23 ... hmmmm.
For real, this is likely for some pipe work/new concrete, but it's fun to have fun anyway. =)
Kind of old news, but Panda Express is being replaced by Pick Six which is a Six Flags branded chinese food. Too bad they couldn't have moved this up to Samurai Summit.
And we'll end with a picture of one of the Green Lanterns, because why not. =)
Thanks again for reading and for all of the incredible support. It's all very much appreciated.
