Toyota Camry Thrill Ride At Six Flags Magic Mountain
Back in August, a large portion of Six Flags Magic Mountain‘s parking lot was closed off and construction began on something mysterious. Speculation ran from a long-awaited refurbishment of Colossus, to a new Fright Fest maze, to a brand new ride of some sort. As it turns out, it was for a new ride, but not for Six Flags. It was for Toyota.
What was built was an elaborate set for a Toyota Camry commercial. Labeled as “Camry Thrill Ride,” it took park guests on a high-thrill drive through a simulated race track to show them what the new Camry was capable of, using a professional race car driver of course. In-car cameras captured their stunned reactions.
I was unable to make it over to the park to capture some photos of the set being constructed. I also happened to miss the actual filming of the commercial as well. By the time I got there, the workers were in the process of dismantling the entire thing:
Here is the final Camry Thrill Ride commercial, as seen on the Toyota YouTube channel:
Thanks to our friends over at SFNE Online for the heads up!
