Six Flags Magic Mountain Construction Continues

By on 01/12/2011

Even though Six Flags Magic Mountain is closed today, it’s nice to see that it’s not completely lifeless inside. The following photos caught Viking Demolition trucks as they were entering the park today.

We know there are a couple of major projects currently under way in preparation for the upcoming season, so we can only assume that they have something to do with those projects. The refurbishment of Superman: Escape from Krypton shouldn’t involve any demolition, so they are likely there for either the Little Flash project or the Green Lantern project.

Little Flash is the name of the new kiddie coaster coming for the 2011 season. It was going to be called Mr. Six’s Dance Coaster and be located next to Deja Vu last season. However, the plans changed, as well as the name, and it’s now going in where Yosemite Sam’s Sierra Falls used to be located. Sierra Falls has already been removed, so the trucks could be hauling out the remains of that demo work. Trivia: Little Flash is a Vekoma Junior Coaster that was previously located at Six Flags New Orleans and was known as The Road Runner Express. After Hurricane Katrina wiped out that park, it was one of only two coasters that could be salvaged. The other was Batman: The Ride, which went on to become Goliath at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

The other possibility for the trucks is that the excavation work could have began for the installation of the new Green Lantern coaster that is also coming for the 2011 season. The Gotham City/Movie District area where the coaster is going had already been staked out with markers. It’s possible that the clearing of this area has finally begun. Trivia: The Green Lantern will be an Intamin Zac-Spin coaster, the first and only of its kind in the United States and only the fourth in the world.

I’ll try and make it over to the park this coming weekend and see if it’s obvious where the work is being done.
