Swung by the park for a few hours to see how things would be in the covid world, and I have to say that magic mountain did a pretty good job. For those wondering, it appears the only checks for r

SFMM Trip Report. Opening Day, April 1st, 2021.    TLDR: I had a very six flags day (but it was awesome)   After over four years, I finally returned to my home park and self-procla

On Saturday 11/21, Theme Park Review was invited to see the Six Flags Magic Mountain Holiday in the Park Drive-thru Experience. It’s rare for park patrons to get to drive through a theme park, so this

I will second Sir Clinksalot's recommendation of Mooseburger Lodge for decent food in the park. I rarely buy anything to eat in the park anywhere but Mooseburger because I have found the rest to be hit and miss, while Mooseburger is consistently good. Certainly not great, but definitely good. The atmosphere helps as well.

Besides MooseBurger Lodge, another place I'd recommend is Loaded Dogs in Full Throttle plaza. The seasoned fries are AWESOME and I personally like the chilli cheese dog, or Full Throttle Dog. Just my humble opinion.

I've had consistently good experience with Mooseburger but personally prefer JD's Smokehouse because it's a bit faster and more convenient for lunch, it has some pretty good barbecue sandwiches and decent kettle chips. I'm still hoping that the park will finally add a full service Panda Express somewhere.

^I was interested in trying that place...until I saw them "grilling" the Chicken outside. And by that, I mean a totally uninterested employee who just threw a bunch of frozen chickens on the grill stacked up on each other and wasn't even watching the grill.

I was in the "Mooseburger is the best option" camp as well until my most recent visit last month. I am sad to report that there have been a couple of changes at the restaurant.

 

First, the menu selections have been greatly reduced. There used to be four different burger options, and now there is only one. This burger has every ingredient you could imagine, turning it into in inedible mess you end up eating with a fork.

 

Secondly, the nicely printed, laminated, and spiral bound menus have been reduced to a single sheet of paper.

 

The second item isn't the biggest deal in the world, but when you finish your meal and realize you just paid $19 for your burger with tax and tip, that $11 Johnny Rockett's burger starts looking like a much better deal.

 

However, if you are desperate for air conditioning and can't stand the horrific smell of the lower seating area of Food Etc., your $19 meal at Mooseburger is rationalized.

Why is Apocalypse closed?

I was wondering the same thing, but then I remembered that my last ride on Apocalypse gave me somewhat of a beating.

Maybe some retracking?

 

Retracking in August? Haha.

You do realize this is SFMM right? Anything can happen with them.

Do they not have the buffet anymore?

^^I think he does realize it is SFMM. Therefore he understands they would never be taking care of a ride in the first place, let alone during the end of summer unless they absolutely had to because of an unforeseen problem.

So I was at Hurricane Harbor today and noticed that they had the entire second lot closed only to have four semis with wooden planks and metal beams on their trailers to start unloading in the middle of the lot. They look like they could be for commercial shoot. Note: Photos aren't the best since I only had my phone.

Best shot I got of the entire set up.

No one has a posted a photo of the Lollipop Freeway Sign in a while, so, why not?

The buffet is still there, and looks as unappealing as ever. It sits there untouched for an hour or two for the first person orders it, only to discover everything has congealed. Then every time an employee changes out a hot tray, all the hot water from under the trays fog up the underside of the sneeze guards, only to drip back down all over the new food. So whatever chemicals were used to clean the underside of the sneeze guard (assuming it gets cleaned), is now on the food as well.

 

Yummy!

Wow! The parking lot looks like crap! I've not been there since 2005.
