While at Six Flags Magic Mountain today, I just happened to be at the right place at the right time to catch a glimpse behind the Full Throttle construction wall. I didn’t really see anything very exciting, but it does provide a new perspective and a view we haven’t seen yet.

One thing I noticed shortly after arriving at the park was that Full Throttle construction was underway. Since it was President’s Day, and many of us had the day off, I wasn’t expecting to see any work being done. That’s good news for those of us waiting for this coaster to open:

As we were leaving the park, I heard some heavy machinery moving towards one of the construction gates and I sensed that they were going to open it. Sure enough, about a minute later, both the inside and outside construction gates opened:

Two pieces of construction equipment crossed the walkway into the construction area:

They left the gates open long enough for me to snap a couple of shots with my cell phone. Like I said above, there really isn’t much to see, but it does provide a different view. This next shot is taken looking across the front of the old Palace Games arcade:

Looking to the right, you can see just how much space there appears to be to work with before you reach Full Throttle off in the distance:

With all that open space, perhaps we will see a new flat ride or two. What do you think?

    As wonderful as it would be to see some new flat rides in this new area, I suspect that the park has other plans. They’ve said during previous West Coast Bash sessions that flat rides really aren’t in their plans. Personally, I think it will more entertainment and other ways for guests to part with their cash.

    Thanks for the sneak peek, though. You got lucky to be able to get a look inside there.
