The popular JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis 4D may be opening on the former lot that once housed The Action Theatre, Planet SIX has learned.
Featuring a mix of state-of-the-art animatronics and 3D video technology, together with numerous special effects, the over 3 minute ride incorporates five huge interactive 3D screens, an interactive 3D fog screen, multiple custom “DOF” vehicles equipped with special laser blasters, a dramatic custom musical score, and culminates in a struggle between the Justice League and the evil villains, in which riders play a decisive role.
This attraction has been speculated to come after it's first incarnation that opened at Six Flags Over Texas & Six Flags St. Louis in 2015.
The live action film, Justice League : Part One is expected to hit theaters next summer, making it perfect to market both the film & the attraction at the So-Cal theme park.
The Action Theatre originally closed in 2015 to make way for additional theme park space. Constructed in 1979, it opened as the "Aqua Theater" which housed live aquatic animals. Later in it's lifetime, it was converted into stunt show theater hosting the live action BATMAN Stunt Show & a BMX stunt show. In it's final stretch, it was home to the popular AFTERMATH maze, which resembled a post-apocalyptic city.
As of February 2016, the theater has been demolished to make way for a future attraction.
Please stay tuned to Planet SIX for more on this and other stories emerging from Six Flags Magic Mountain.
