Alexander/Sean: We made a quick visit to the park today to check out the construction that is starting to take place at the future home of Six Flags Magic Mountain’s new 2018 attraction, CraZanity. The new Boardwalk area construction has started earlier than we anticipated, but of course that’s not something to be mad about! In this update we’ll also be taking a look at
– Over the years, many of our images have popped up on other sites and forums, awesome that our coverage spreads, not so awesome that not everyone mentioned where they got the images from. We are totally fine with our audience using our images, BUT ONLY IF credit is given to californiacoasterkings.com. Thank you! –
Guests are funneled between the Colossus County Fair games of skill now that construction has engulfed the main midway. The game pavilions will soon receive cosmetic upgrades as they become an integral part of the new Boardwalk area.
The heart of this hardhat area is the rotting Contempo Pavilion Metro Station, the 3rd and final Metro station to meet the wrecking ball. Some dirt-pushing has already commenced between the Metro station and the old Drunken Barrels platform.
After seeing very few changes since 1971, this chunk of midway is about to transform into something totally different. Though the Boardwalk theme may be very common, but we’re very excited for it to come to Six Flags Magic Mountain!
The far end of the construction zone meets with Tidal Wave‘s new-for-2017 entrance. The ride’s entrance move from near Riddler’s Revenge will make it part of the Boardwalk’s attraction roster when it re-opens in 2018; its 2017 operations have already concluded.
