We'll start off with a fun video of the Gold Passholder walk-back to the ride. It was about 5 minutes long, but that was boring. So we sped it up and added some Yakety Sax. Plus we took a look at the estimated 3 hour line.
After letting us into the park via the side entrance near Will-Call, they held all of the Gold Passholders near Vault 666.

Five visits to Six Flags Magic Mountain in one week, there's got to be a good reason to visit a park that much, and fortunately this week there is. =)
We headed back up to the park today to take in opening day. No ceremony was held, but the park was packed, the ride was amazing and once again the staff of the park showed what they can do when teamwork is the name of the game.
Because one can apparently never have enough pictures of Full Throttle ... =)
And they're off!!!
Still a few things to be done.
So the line stopped just past the Screampunk District sign, but they quickly filled up the queue building and the line that goes down towards Scream. They were also giving out boarding passes today.
Oh yeah, Scream is back open ... "Thanks for rememberin' me"
They gave out some awesome "I Rode First" buttons at the exit.
At the end of the video above (under Superman) it was an estimated 3 hour wait. They conceded that it may have been 2 1/2, but better to tell people 3 hours and have it be shorter. =)
So it's been awhile since we've actually walked out into the park, seriously, even though we've been at the park a LOT over the last month, today was the first day we ventured outside of Screampunk District since April.
Soooo ... what's going on? Looks like at least one Jet Stream Boat is getting some TLC, this looked great from up close on the ride. But of course, we aren't going to take pictures from the ride now are we. =)
Hoping this is just the first of many re-done boats.
What, a theme park that actually goes all out for Grad Night and does decorations? =)
Full Throttle Nights is back ... TONIGHT!!!
Swashbuckler looks VERY close to being back open, and looks great.
Goliath, still closed.
Today was Jubilee, always one of the busiest days of the year.
Need to try these, hopefully they are still around on our next visit.
And with that, our Twisted Colossus updates have come to an official end.
Hats off to the entire RMC and Six Flags Magic Mountain crew for creating an amazing ride that seems to be loved by all. This truly is the coaster the park has needed for a LONG time. High capacity, high fun and high repeatability.
We're most likely going to be taking a bit of a break from the park, it's Hurricane Harbor Season so we'll likely have an update from there in the next week or two, but it may be longer, just depends. Family obligations are going to take priority for awhile.
But that doesn't mean we won't be doing anything, you'll just have to wait and see what we've got in store. =)
