Full Throttle is the big new attraction for Six Flags Magic Mountain this summer. With track now installed, attention has moved to electrical work and landscaping. We’ve noticed a few things going on at Jet Stream that have us concerned and we’ll bring you a quick update on the rest of the park.
Since track work has been completed, most of the current construction being done has been behind the scenes. A overview of the ride from the Sky Tower doesn’t look much different today than it did in our last update 2 weeks ago.
No word yet if the trains are on-site and no word when testing should begin. Landscaping work on the 5-acre Full Throttle area should begin soon.
I had heard reports of a strange chlorine type smell near the Roaring Rapids side of Jet Stream in what seemed like they were trying to clean the water/flume. I decided to take a look this week and sadly it looks like whatever they were doing isn’t helping.
What was here?
Let’s have a little bit of fun and share some park history at the same time. For those who are familiar with the park, you’ll know there are still some remnants of past attractions all around the park. Whether they are new rides in locations of former rides or buildings from former rides that are still waiting to be re-purposed. I wanted to start sharing those with everybody and see if you can all guess what they are. Please play along in the comments.
The first person to write in the comments what attraction was formerly in the building pictured below will win ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! OK, bragging rights.
Around The Park
The planter in front of DC Universe has been cut back and will soon be an outdoor stage. This will probably be for the upcoming Grad Nights but could also be for other purposes during the summer.
Also, take a look at the empty parking lot in the picture above. Weekdays until Memorial Day are absolutely the perfect days to go. No crowds, minimal lines even for the most popular coasters. Tatsu was a walk-on when I went by the area during my visit.
That will do it for this week. Since not much is going on with Full Throttle we probably won’t have an update for a couple of weeks unless we hear news of testing happening. I
