Great report! The whole area looks nice, and Magic Mountain really needed a ride like this. They really went all out for this one (at least by Six Flags standards). Those superheroes sell tickets amd generate merch sales, so keep them coming.

It's high time that Magic Mountain had a dark ride. I'm looking forward to checking it out myself.

First major media event for a grand opening and I had a lot of fun. I thought the new Justice League: Battle For Metropolis was a good break in a coaster heavy park, especially in the summer when an air-conditioned ride is most welcome. The experience was fun as you help the Justice League battle to save Metropolis from Lex Luthor, The Joker, and Harley Quinn!

The food was delicious with chicken and carne asada street tacos, fried shrimp, and fish and chips filling us up before Grand Opening.
Desserts like chocolate fudge and caramel/apple slices put us in the mood for more Justice League!Cool schwag too like a pink Super Girl cape in which we dressed our pup Schatzi.
Overall a fun night and a fun ride that promises to give the park some depth for families.
