It’s time for a much needed photo update! This month, we take a look at the progress for the transformation of Cyclone Bay to The Underground, alongside the construction of West Coast Racers.
The Underground is a newly renovated LA-centric urban-themed area featuring various new dining, retail, and game locations. This high-energy street is also home to Apocalypse: The Ride and two existing uncharge attractions: Slingshot & Cyclone 500 Go Kart Racing.
As of now, there's minimal progress around the area.
Majority of the work looks to be inside the buildings.
West Coast Racers
The construction of West Coast Racers and its surrounding area into The Underground is moving at a slow pace, with the most significant change being the addition of rebar on the property. It is possible that footers will be constructed within the next two weeks and we will see them being poured later next month, making the progress accelerate. In addition to the rebar, supports pieces have finally arrived at the park and have been stored adjacent to the parking lot.
That’ll do it for this photo update. Don't forgot to view our latest episode of Road To West Coast Racers. Be sure to follow Thrill Capital Insider for continuing coverage of Six Flags Theme Parks.
Six Flags Great America gave us a glimpse into the construction of Maxx Force, a triple record breaking coaster coming to Six Flags Great America. The ride is planned to go underneath the railroad, launching at 78mph in just 2 seconds, making it the fastest launch in North America. Maxx Force will break two other records, the tallest double inversion at 175ft and the fastest inversion at 60mph.
Below is a video of the recent conference held at the construction site.
