Welcome to a special Throwback Thursday!
For this (and future) Throwback updates, we're going to pretend it's not 2020, and treat this just like we would any update that we would do.
So welcome back to Six Flags Magic Mountain exactly 9 years ago today!

Welcome to Magic Mountain. A few holiday decorations are starting to show up around the park.
It was a beautifully overcast day at the park
Fall has definitely arrived at Magic Mountain. This is easily my favorite time of year to visit.
Roaring Rapids is closed for it's yearly refurbishment.
The Sky Tower was open so I was able to head up and get some pics of the Deja Vu removal.
The entire back side of the park is closed while they remove the coaster and do some work on the surrounding area.
Parts of the coaster are sitting out back ready to be shipped off to New England.
Sad to see this ride go, but our loss is New England's gain.
A look down at the recently opened Superman Escape from Krypton, and the recently closed Log Jammer which closed down just a few weeks ago on Halloween.
No portions of the flume have been removed yet, but the lake has been drained.
We see you Gold Rusher!
Lots of buses in the lot today
More of the colors of fall at the park. Some remnants of the metro are still here, rumors are that the rest of the track will be removed soon.
Tidal Wave is also closed for it's yearly refurbishment.
Looks like Buccaneer is getting some TLC this off-season.
Looks to be a pretty extensive rehab.
Love it when parks take the time to take care of their classic rides.
You can see a bit more of the Metro track peeking out through the trees.
The final splashdown of Log Jammer is still there. It will be interesting to see how much this area changes over the next year or so.
Wonder if the restaurant will reopen when the new ride arrives?
That's going to wrap it up for this update! We're still waiting to see what's going to be announced for the former Log Jammer spot (or what's going to replace Deja Vu). Can't wait to hear!!
