Look inside the Hall of Justice, under construction at Six Flags Magic Mountain

March 10, 2017, 6:52 PM · The Justice League is coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Today, the park invited local reporters to tour the "Hall of Justice" show building for its upcoming Justice League Battle for Metropolis dark ride. This interactive adventure won the Theme Park Insider Award for Best New Attraction in 2015 for its initial installation at Six Flags Over Texas.

The Magic Mountain version won't be a clone of the original, however. For this installation, creator Sally Corp. is adding three new scenes, including the first appearance of Harley Quinn in any version of the Justice League ride. The Magic Mountain version also will be a mirror image of the Texas installation, running counterclockwise through the show building.

For that, Six Flags needs a really big building. The show building we toured today is more than 23,000 square feet, according to park officials. And, yes, it boasts Magic Mountain's largest air conditioner up there on the roof, allowing visitors to blast away at Metropolis' villains in cool comfort all hot California summer long.

Around the building, which is going in between Riddler's Revenge and the old Waterfront, that land is transforming into Metropolis. Several new or rethemed restaurants will surround the Hall of Justice building that will house the ride, including a new beer garden.

Six Flags' parks in New Jersey and Georgia are getting Justice League installations this year, joining previous installations in Texas, St. Louis, Mexico, and Chicago. There's no official word yet on an opening date for Justice League Battle for Metropolis at Six Flags Magic Mountain, but we're guessing a June debut at this point.

March 11, 2017 at 10:04 PM · My understanding is that only Magic Mountain is getting the expanded version, but I will check next week.
March 11, 2017 at 11:24 PM · SF over Georgia should have gotten the enhanced version...after all they are the park celebrating a 50 year anniversary this season.
March 12, 2017 at 12:41 AM · From what I understand, only SFMM is getting the alternate version of the ride, and it isn't really an expansion since the three new scenes will replace the final three scenes in the regular version of the ride. Judging from the current state of construction, I'm guessing this will likely be a late June opening instead of late May like the other installations. Either way, I'm still more excited for this than any other 2017 project in So Cal.

March 12, 2017 at 5:21 PM · Anton M, Six Flags may not be very good parks for children or families, but for thrill seekers, they are the best in the business. There are plenty of other parks more suitable for families. Six Flags isn't going after that demographic and hasn't for a long time. While people on here have rightfully complained that they don't have best customer service, or could do a better job maintaining some of their parks, they do a good job at operating profitable regional parks, and have a loyal customer base. They may not be the best park for you, but they are for many other people, and wouldn't be in business id it weren't. No park can appeal to everybody.
March 13, 2017 at 6:45 PM · Not that this probably hasn't been mentioned before but this is the first time I'm seeing this on-ride video. This attraction reminds me a lot of a combo of Universal's Spider-Man and MIB for obvious reasons. I'd definitely like to try this one someday.
March 14, 2017 at 5:20 AM · I didn't watch the onride in 2015 because I knew my home park, Great Adventure, was going to eventually get one.
