January 16th, 2016 - We're back with our first update of 2017! Today was a great day at the park as crews were able to go vertical with Justice League. Movie District is finally a thing of the past and it being prepared to transform. With all the construction going on around the park, it’s really fun to imagine where it’s all headed. Let’s take a look!
JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS
Magic Mountain has announced JUSTICE LEAGUE : Battle for Metropolis - Ride. Play. Triumph, an 2nd generation of the popular dark ride now with 3 new scenes, pre-shows and a new villain, HARLEY QUINN!
The ride is slated for a SUMMER 2017 opening. CLICK HERE to learn more about this attraction.
Battle for Metropolis went vertical today and is coming along as crews continue to speed towards a summer opening. The structure could be completed by the end of February - Early March. Walls have finally gone up around Movie District as it prepares to transform into Metropolis. JB's Barbecue is expected to transform to Ace O' Clubs. The Waterfront Food Court is expected to receive a much needed make-over and will have a new Beer Garden. The RIDDLER's Revenge is receiving a new paint-job and will look brand new once completed.
Seasonal Events In February
Planet SIX has learned that Magic Mountain will be bringing back some seasonal areas for a corporate event being held in February. Don't be surprised to see Suicide Squad: The Six Flags Fright Fest Experience, Holiday in the Park's Gleampunk District, and Full Throttle Summer Nights to begin prep at the end of the month.
TATSU & LEX LUTHOR UPDATES
LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom has re-opened after a refurbishment and the park has removed the Lex Corp Power Armor, which was inside the queue building. It is unknown if the armor will return soon. On the other side of the park, Tatsu is closed for a unknown reason. We will keep you updated once we know. EDIT: Tatsu is having it's annual refurbishment including a chain replacement. It's NOT being re-painted.
