Sean: It’s only been a few days since Alex got a quick Six Flags Magic Mountain update looking at operations and a display of new camera lens shots. In today’s update we’ll be looking at a lot of changes that regard current operations and the future of the park, including closures of restaurants, as well as rapid progress being made on the Boardwalk attractions! Continue reading “Six Flags Magic Mountain Update – January 16th, 2018”
We got a few pictures sent in by our Instagram reader @socalexploring7, showing off the completed track! The ride’s station is currently under construction! See pictures below! Continue reading “Electric Eel Track Completed at SeaWorld San Diego!”
Alexander: The Holidays have wound down for Six Flags Magic Mountain, which means that the reality of daily operation is setting in.
Crowds are amazingly light, and the park seems to be doing a good job of keeping rides open. Hopefully they can keep it up!
Alexander: Another day, another slew of changes for Disneyland Resort.
After a lovely visit to Knott’s Berry Farm to cover Hang Time as it rapidly approaches completion, we hopped over to Disneyland Resort to see how things are doing post-holidays 2017.
(spoiler alert: everything is a mess)
Sean: It’s the time of year for massive amounts of updates, so here’s one of four we’re providing this week: Knott’s Berry Farm and HANGTIME! Before we get to HangTime, we’ll take a look around the park on this slow Wednesday morning and we’ll discuss some of the important changes taking place as the park moves forward in the never ending process to maintain the park.

Sean: It has been a dream of me to actually visit the Mall of America, and everything fell into place to visit one of the world’s most famous indoor theme parks, which happens to call the largest mall in the US its home. Nickelodeon Universe opened as Knott’s Camp Snoopy in 1992, and has since seen quite some changes to become the brightly colored indoor wonderland that it is today. Let’s take a look shall we?

Sean + Alexander: Annually we have released a full California Top 50, but we decided to take it down a notch and really focus on what the top 10 best coasters in the state are, and why we think so. This year brought us Patriot, the state’s only major new coaster experience of the year, but every year again we completely find a new ranking appropriate. So sit back, and enjoy our end-of-the-year coverage finishing with The California Top 10 of 2017! Continue reading “The California Top 10 of 2017!”
Sean: I may live next to Six Flags Magic Mountain, and visit quite frequently, but with the holidays, travels across the country and the state, it has been a while that we actually got an update for you all. But with the park being open every day from now on, those updates will be pouring in all 2018 long. Let’s throw in a late 2017 update to end yet another year of updates around the state. In this update we’ll look at the construction zone, some notes around the park, and the park’s new entrance sign they placed today! Continue reading “Six Flags Magic Mountain Update – December 29th 2017”
Alexander: Following our ideal Dollywood day, Sean and I popped over to nearby NASCAR Speed Park so that Sean could get a ride on the park’s resident coaster, Speedway Drift.
NASCAR Speed Park was so kind to host us during our visit (especially since it’s a very expensive coaster credit), but we have some concerns about the park’s future. We hope that, if nothing else, their good customer service can keep them afloat.
Sean: WinterFest has returned for a second year and has proven to be fair competition with the rest of the state’s major Holiday events, managing to offer a unique experience while limiting guests to just three of the park’s major coasters. The event offers quality entertainment, awesome lights all around the event, and unique attractions such as ice skating, character meet ‘n greets and faux snow of course! McLaren and I hit up the event, and would love to show off what the event has to offer! Oh and there’s a little RailBlazer construction for you all.
