How are things at Magic Mountain lately?Six Flags Magic Mountain: I am taking a group of student in early May......want to see how things are.
From Jay PosteraroI was wondering if anyone has been to Magic Mountain within the past month? I am taking 100 students in early May. What rides have been closed? Is the park any cleaner? Anything comments would be helpful.

From Dan Keppelthe other ride they are taking down is flashback. that is the blue coaster by the waterpark that has a back and forth layout. It was apparently never a popular ride and the noise it made meant that it could not be operated at the sime time as the waterpark so that lifeguards could hear people screaming for help. It has be SBNO(standing but not operating) for at least 3 years I think. It has been a huge waste of space, especially since they have very little space to work with.

From Matthew BakerNope--it's alive and well and no longer being sold, and likely to improve. The extra space where Psyclone was will probably be re[?]themed (a dark ride pretty please!); there's rumors that Flashback could be restored and moved to that area. IMO a good family ride could/should go where Flashback is right now, being next to Bugs Bunny World and all.
