Before a very busy few weeks we decided to make one last trek up to Six Flags Magic Mountain to check out West Coast Racers progress.
Below we have pics and video of the rides progress as well as some Fright Fest prep, which begins in less than a month if you can believe it!!

Below is a video update if you'd rather get your info that way, otherwise, scroll down for some pics!!
Definitely some more track added since our tour
No station yet
A piece of track is ready for it's new home
Through the trees
This is where it goes backwards (j/k, j/k)
Crane is ready to load more track
Looks like the spaghetti bowl may be the last part of track to finish, obviously we can't see behind Apocalypse
We obviously have no idea when the ride is going to open. We were hoping by the beginning of Fright Fest, that's not going to happen as that's in less than a month.
Obligatory coaster shot for this update
Some new merch, or at least new to us
Really dig these!!
Was going to buy one of these on my way out, but they only had one register open ... in the largest store in the park, and I didn't want to wait.
Fright Fest dates!!
Fright Fest starts on September 14th and runs all the way through November 3rd!!
AND Fright Fest is open on Halloween. Not sure why the change this year as the park hasn't been open for Fright Fest on Halloween the past few years, but we definitely welcome the change!
Nice and shiny
Nightmares is coming back!!
Hopefully our friend Lorraine-Lurane will be back!!
Sewer of Souls will be back as well!! This was our favorite maze from Fright Fest last year so we are glad it will be back.
Didn't notice this thing last year, will have to look back on pics to see if it was there. Either way, it's kind of sewer'y.
Terrortory Twisted is going to be back as well
(sorry in advance, didn't realize the lens had a spot towards the end of our visit)
It definitely seems like there are more "guts" this year. But probably not. Lol.
Alright, there's our update. Hope you enjoyed. We most likely will not be back at the park until Fright Fest opening weekend. Be sure to follow along our social media the next few weeks, lots going on including Six Flags 2020 announcements on August 29th.
