Crazanity Construction Tour at SFMM and Neal Thurman Too!


Recommended Posts

Okay from the better late than never report category...yeah, should have had this up sooner, but life's a bitch and then you get new bumper cars...or something. Anyway, in the shadow of Superman in the area where the old Metro station and Crazy Barrels were once situated, Six Flags Magic Mountain will be erecting the new pendulum ride Crazanity! The biggest erection of it's kind, Crazanity itself will be 172 feet tall, but when installed on it's base will reach near 180 feet tall. It will include a killer lighting package, and should be visible from the other side of the park.

 

Okay, even better news, the entire area will be getting a face-lift! Starting with the midway games area, there will be new brighter pastel paint and boardwalk theming, Johnny Rockets gets updated with paint, new seating, and new signs. Bumper cars will get a complete overhaul, including new queue, paint, lights and yes...NEW CARS!!! If you're a total nerd and want to know about the troll sign, it has been removed, but it may indeed turn up somewhere in the future. The scrambler will also get an overhaul with paint and a much needed shade cover. The nearby restroom will be renovated, including new trough sinks and air dryers. Last, but not least, Tidal Wave will in the least get some new paint.

 

We also got an introduction to new park president Neal Thurman! Neal was the Director of Park Operations at Six Flags Magic Mountain many years ago, before having a position of Park President at both Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Six Flags Great Adventure. With Neal back at Six Flags Magic Mountain I'm sure we can expect big improvements to the park!

 

Okay, that's all I have, sorry for the delay, leave a comment, and pictures...

The only update I can give is to say the ride opened three years ago 🙂

True story: the bumper cars were so poorly taken care of at one point in 2002 that the wood supporting the floor rotted away and collapsed. Glad they get some love now. The troll sign should live on.

What has actually happened with that construction progress? Any updates? Are used to live in that area and I remember when everyone was discussing it but since I moved to Colorado I haven't seen anything around the internet. Only thing I remember saying is that they were looking for some solar panel installation for the site and they used solarsamui2020.com which I know them well. I installed with them some solar panels a couple years ago and that's why I wanted to ask what happened to that park actually.
