We're back for another update! This is rather a quick update due to the fact that Ninja and Jet Stream were closed during our visit. The area by the preview center was blocked off by team members.
THE UNDERGROUND & 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.
The majority of the focus is centered around West Coast Racers at the moment. Several footers have been poured for the launch, station, and brake run. In some of these shots, you can see that concrete is being pour for the second and fourth launches that will launch you over the river banks. Work has picked up again for Apocalypse and workers are laying down new wood for the turns surrounding the main queue area.
TRACK HAS ARRIVED
West Coast Racers track has finally arrived and is continuing to arrive each day. As mentioned earlier, these pieces of track seem to be for the first and third launch, station, and final brake run. More supports have been place along the dirt site as well.
That’ll do it for this photo update. There will not be a video update this week, but we hope to return for one soon. Be sure to follow Thrill Capital Insider for continuing coverage of Six Flags Theme Parks.
It's shocking to see such drastic changes happening around the mountain. This month, we take a look at the further progress of project 2019 and the surrounding area.
Cyclone bay 2019 project
From above, it is no secret that something big in the works for next season.
Gone are the structures that housed many retail shops like the Photo Emporium and Glass Craft. Cyclone Bay and Spillikin Corners are becoming history.
Survey markers have appeared throughout the entire area. Some can be seen throughout Cyclone 500 and behind the construction walls.
Apocalypse is currently under a lengthy refurbishment. Similar to the last refurb, track pieces have been removed and will be replaced to make the ride as smooth as possible. In other news, we might see the Apocalypse theme come to an end. With the new attraction and re-themed area coming, it is possible that the ride will recieve another thematic change.
To conclude this update, here are some of the teasers the park has put out along the blue construction wall in Cyclone Bay. What are your thoughts? Are we getting a launch coaster next year?
That's all for today!
