Hey guys. Being that I grew up in between three major theme parks (Disneyland, Knott's, Magic Mountian) I have very early memories of these places and their now-extinct attractions. You can generally do a search on the intrernet and find whatever you want about outdated or extinct attractions but one attraction in particular is very elusive. Magic Mountian's The Magic Pagoda.
The Magic Pagoda was situated on top of the mountain next to the Sky Tower. It was a walkthrough attraction themed after a mystical Chinese Pagoda in which visitors would venture through different rooms and experience different effects.
In particular I remember the walkthrough starting off in a long room with a Buddah at the end. It comes to life (through voice over i think) and invites you to tour the Pagoda. After that I remember there was a Mirror maze in which there were booby traps that would trigger loud noises and scary masks to appear on the other side of the glass, A miniture town with a bridge that you would cross, A strobe light room with a Chinese dragon circling the walls above on a track, and then this thing where willing participants could step into a tube and dissapear/re-appear before onlookers eyes.
The Structure still stands and is used as a haunted maze during the Fright Fests, but little of it's original appearance remains except for what's in my cloudy memory. So, do any of you guys remember this attraction? Do any of you have photographs? Would you mind sharing your memories or images so that I can clearly remember this cool attraction that gave Magic Mountain it's name?
