Justice League: Battle for Metropolis Construction Update #5

By on 02/12/2017

The Justice League: Battle for Metropolis show building at Six Flags Magic Mountain is really starting to take shape now. The entire framework has been erected and most of the walls have been attached:

Just a few more panels for the front, add the roof, and it’ll be fully enclosed:

Here’s what it’s looking like from the rear:

It’s so funny seeing the gazebo standing alone by itself in the dirt. After so many years of being obscured at the end of the Waterfront Commissary building, it looks like a brand new structure:

Lots of underground infrastructure work being done in this area:

Other than the rest of the signage and fixtures having been removed, it doesn’t look like much else has been done to the food building:

Here’s the other half of the food building:

I’m glad to see they kept the outdoor grill. It wasn’t added that long ago and grilled food is always better than fried food:

Other than the removal of the rock wall, the rest of the plaza looks untouched:

However, if you look towards the very back, you’ll notice that Earl’s Gas Station has been removed. This was the small building you had to walk around when you exited The Riddler’s Revenge, which was where you got your on-ride photos back when Riddler’s still had cameras:

JB’s Smokehouse Barbeque hasn’t been touched yet, but it will ultimately be re-themed to match the new Metropolis theme of the area:

All these large pallets you see lying around are insulating panels for the new building:

Nothing to show yet off to the side of JB’s, either:

In a previous update, I showed a couple of large trees that had been cut down in a planter box in front of the Scrambler. That planter box has since been removed and filled with concrete, opening up that area considerably:

    Six Flags obsession with concrete has made the park less and less enjoyable year after year

      I have to agree with jjj, SFMM is in California our weather is HOT HOT HOT ! Six flags has taken out way too many nice cool shade areas ! SUMMER IS A BLISTERING HELL AT THE PARK Six Flags really needs to stop with all the concrete & add some beautiful big green shade trees 🙂

      “Also Six Flags Can’t use the excuse about a drought cause California is no longer in a drought”

    Guessing gazebo’s going goodbye. Good! And ditto for Earl’s Gas Station. His prices were too high anyway…

    I’m kind of looking forward to Metropolis. The new theme opens up all kinds of possibilities for new attractions.

    Since we can’t go up in the Sky Tower anymore, instead of tearing down these buildings, ie. Earl’s Gas Station, what are the chances of using one to set up the museum again, on ground level? I would like to see that stuff again.

    Looks like they just built a big storage shed that they can use later if this ride goes away.
