Six Flags Magic Mountain opened its doors to the media Friday for a behind-the-scenes look at the on-going construction of the theme park’s latest roller coaster, West Coast Racers.Attendees were given a tour of the former Cyclone Bay area of the park, being redesigned into a new themed area.
“We are completely transforming this section of the park,” said Sue Carpenter, Public Relations Manager for Six Flags Magic Mountain.
The coaster is expected to be an anchor to the new Los Angeles urban-themed area, titled The Underground, near the wooden roller coaster Apocalypse:The Ride, according to officials.
The construction of the new coaster has only affected the operation of two nearby attractions, Apocalypse: The Ride and Jetstream. Apocalypse is expected to re-open coinciding with the 2019 Fright Fest season and it’s adjoining maze Aftermath, according to Carpenter.
