It's been a month since our last update and it looks like things are coming to an end with track installation for West Coast Racers. That's not the only construction happening. Fright Fest is around the corner and the park is getting prepared to terrify guests with returning favorites and possibly new additions to the event. Check everything out on our latest update below.
West coast racers
West Coast Racers is Magic Mountain's 2019 attraction and the park's "20th" coaster! Click here to learn more about this attraction.
Track installation is coming to an end in the next few weeks. It's crazy to see how much progression there has been. With the 2020 announcement being days away, maybe we can expect this ride to open during Fright Fest. All there is left to complete is the Zero G rolls and the station work and work around The Underground. Aftermath 2 is expected return for this year's Fright Fest, so we may catch a better glimpse of the ride in the coming weeks.
The scariest time of the year is just weeks away and the park is gearing up for their most popular event of the year. Fright Fest will run on selected dates beginning Sept. 14th through Nov. 3rd. Scare zones like Demon's Door, Nightmares, Exile Hill, Terrortory Twisted will be returning this year as they are being dressed throughout the park. The mazes most likely returning are Willoughby's Resurrected, Sewer of Souls, Aftermath 2: Chaos Rising, and Condemned. Hell Fest is unlikely to return, but we found it interesting that the facade for Vault 666 still stands. Maybe it will come back with new rooms? No word about Red's Revenge. Hopefully the park provides the line up real soon.
With the 2020 announcement being a little over a week away, what do you think
Magic Mountain is receiving? Let us know.
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!
