Very short- quick update- SFMM 10/18/13

We went to Fright Fest at Six Flags Magic Mountain again yesterday. We decided to go on all mazes for the last time, therefore we didn’t have much time to look at all the things that went on. Also, we were with some friends, so mazes were our top priority. Below you’ll see a wooping 3 pictures! Which will show what we noticed real quick while we were at the park.

Around 6:30 PM, when they decided to open Total Darkness early, we saw this on our way from DC Universe to TD. Maintenance was climbing the superman track. Later, around 7 PM. Superman opened again.

Another thing we noticed real quick, was the bus-stop waiting line. It is now a permanent line.

Throwback Thursday–Hurricane @ Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

Hurricane roller coaster santa cruzHurricane was Santa Cruz’s 2nd steel coaster built, and although somewhat compact at only 58 ft tall and 1430 ft long, it packed a powerful punch.  The ride threw riders at a monstrous 4.5 G’s, the same amount of force that the much larger coaster, Medusa at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom gives to riders.  The ride is made by SDC and shares a name with the model it is.

Short Fright Fest Update from 10/11/13

CCK was at Fright Fest (SFMM) again yesterday, and although there wasn’t much going on compared to last week, there were a few things we noticed!

 One of ’em was that Colossus Backwards was closed all night… 20131011_184537

Six Flags Magic Mountain put up some signs with directions for the mazes. They were located at various places in the park, and looked very neat.

This weekend, they seriously fogged out the scare zones, and we could finally see the ‘City Under Siege’ effects! (there was hardly any fog last Friday)

Scream! finally received a new ‘shield’ on the fence (exit path). It used to be ripped, and looked awful. Next up; PAINT JOB!

SFMM also added a TV screen in the Total Darkness line, guests in line can now follow groups inside the pitch-black maze. Nice addition!

Other than this, Viper ran extremely smooth yesterday. Also, Batman: The Ride was closed all night too, and there were no lines for the rides, except for SEFK, which had a line reaching far outside the building.

Special Saturday–Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
