Six Flags Magic Mountain has jumped back into the record books, unveiling a renovated Bugs Bunny World in the process. Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers puts Magic Mountain into the Guinness Book of World Records again as the park featuring the most roller coasters, 19 total.
In an intimate ceremony, just in front of the newly renovated land, Looney Tunes Characters collected as the ribbon cutting took place.
We were then led over to the entrance of the new roller coaster where an opening ceremony was held as well.
It is an itty bitty little coaster, but brings the coaster count in Bugs Bunny world alone to 3. That is if you are not counting the Magic Flyer over at the Whistle Stop area.
Exploring the land we found that everything had a fresh coat of paint and was glowing with color. No other new rides to speak of, but a refresh of the area that made it feel vibrant again.
Another addition was the new stage show, the Looney Tunes Kids Club Show. It was a surprisingly good and energetic little show that seemed to entertain the children in the audience.
The show was a very loose musical review that featured interactive game show segments with volunteers from the audience. While the kids participating seems to be having a good time, it felt as if a few of these bits could have been cut in order to keep the momentum of the show going.
Congratulations to Magic Mountain on their 19th coaster and the new show.
Around the Park
While things looked great over in the brand new Bugs Bunny World, we decided to stroll through the rest of the park to see how things looked elsewhere.
As many of you may have heard, the classic roller coaster Colossus will be closing for good on August 14th. In honor of its role in the classic comedy, National Lampoon’s Vacation, this clever photo op was set up.
There was another photo op set up further down the path, at the site of the old food service location. They really could have gone the extra mile and made a Zapped reference here. But alas,
Over at the old Batman Stunt Show Theatre the lagoon has been drained. We can’t see that any work has been done just yet, but it’s probable something is going down. get it?
They have also added charging stations at certain areas around the park. Nice.
Overall the park looks fine. There are still some wonderful spots of tranquility in contrast to the high-octane thrills which have become the focus of this park. Tomorrow we will bring you a full report from Universal Studios Hollywood. We will see you again soon . . . In The Parks.
