We had excellent (though slightly hot) weather for our trip in October.
Crowds were very light on a Friday. Riddler's Revenge had the longest line,
but Batman was a walk-on.
Psyclone, Ninja and Superman only had one train running so lines were
longer than necessary. Psyclone was rougher than I remembered.
Our trip was short so we only got photos of about half of the coasters
in the park.
On a follow-up trip in November (same great Southern California weather),
I made the mistake of visiting on
a Saturday. Crowds were enormous (hour long lines for all coasters).
I took a lot of photos but I don't think I rode any of the coasters that day.
The Sky Tower was closed during the first visit (open during the second)
and Superman was open for the first visit and closed for the second.
So I'm glad I went twice.
Goldrusher, a runaway mine train and Magic Mountain's first roller coaster,
is not represented on this page (yet). Goldrusher is surrounded by trees
and is difficult to photograph.
I shot more "quality" photos of Magic Mountain than of any other park.
It was difficult to narrow it down to a reasonable number for web posting.
The photo of Colossus with the red and black trains is a composite.
Meaning the trains were never lined up like that at one moment:
I took two photos of Colossus, one with the red train and one with the
black train and merged the two in an image editing program.
I hesitate to call it a "fake", preferring the more accurate term "composite".
This is the only image on this web site that has been modified in this way.
