It’s been a few weeks since our last Magic Mountain update and while it may seem like progress has been slow for Full Throttle (it has) the ride is coming together. Elsewhere around the park, Grad Nights are back, Jet Stream is cleaner and some new merchandise has found its way into stores.
Once the loop was topped off at Full Throttle early last month we thought we’d at least be seeing testing by now. But a ride with 3 launches (2 launch zones) takes a bit of time to get everything connected and functional.
Up near Samurai Summit a new fence has been installed. As of now, it does not match the Superman area, hopefully either the blue or the black fence get’s painted to match.
More fencing has been installed between Gold Rusher and Full Throttle. Not sure why, as this is area has always been a “backstage” type area. I’m sure it’s for employee safety but I can’t imagine a scenario where an employee would be back here when the ride is operational. Maybe they are going to be opening up more of the area down by the entrance than previously thought?
Full Throttle is progressing, but unfortunately we have no idea when the ride is going to open. At this point I think it’s safe to say that the earliest it would open would be around July 4th. We’ll keep you updated and you will know as soon as we do.
Grad Nights are back at the park and it looks like the park is going for a party atmosphere. Since Grad Nights no longer seem to be a priority for Disneyland (at least since my Grad night 20 years ago) I think it’s great that Magic Mountain is picking up the slack and offering an alternative for students.
Around The Park
I apologize for not getting back to our series of “What was Here”, We’ll continue the series for our next update.
Lastly, only about 2 weeks left before I go “Coasting For Kids” at Knott’s Berry Farm for the AMAZING Give Kids The World. We’ve told you all about GKTW on MiceChat and they are one of our favorite charities. Please, if you can, even $1 will help to give these amazing kids an awesome vacation in Central Florida. You can find my donation page here. I appreciate it!!!
