Parking Lot Resurfaced At Six Flags Magic Mountain

By on 03/07/2012

Six Flags Magic Mountain’s parking lot got a much needed refresh this week. It’s been two or three years since the last time they resurfaced it and it definitely needed it. The harsh Southern California sun, coupled with a constant beating from thousands of cars every day the park is open, really wears the asphalt down fast. As you will see below, it even makes a huge visual difference.

I don’t believe the park actually laid down any new asphalt. Instead, they typically spread out a liquid product that fills in all the cracks and dries hard, leaving the impression of new asphalt. It doesn’t last nearly as long as fresh asphalt would, however it can be applied in a fraction of the time and is much less expensive to install. Here you can see the first section of the parking lot with the fresh overlay, but no stripes yet:

As you start to move towards the middle of the lot, you can start to see some stripes:

The far section of the lot looks completely finished, with new overlay and stripes:

Moving to the front of the park, you can see that they have completed the entire entrance area in front of the toll booths. It looks really nice:

    I hope they’re resurfacing the tram route as well. That thing is way too bumpy and half the time I feel like I’m going to fly out of the tram when they hit the holes.

      It’s too bad that they can’t somehow reroute the tram so that people don’t have to cross the tram route. I suppose they could switch places with the pedestrian walkway and put the tram right up next to the fence, but then you’d have people walking out by where traffic goes. Not a problem at the beginning of the day, but a big one at the end with everyone leaving.

    I’m sure they needed it after Rob Dyrdek burned rubber on it for that commercial.

    And of course, no improvement for customers arriving by transit?

    In this picture, Scream! looks like it’s just past the toll plaza, when in reality, it’s almost a half mile away! The new surface and paint looks really nice and was long overdue. Glad they took care of this.

    And while I’m speaking of Scream!, it also needs some new paint…
