So much so that I ran out of saliva towards the end. You pick up so much speed its crazy, the air time is really really fun, we totally didn’t expect it. Great addition to the park, nice break from roller coaster during your visit 😉

Some Photos from the event 🙂

July 12th Six Flags Magic Mountain, the undisputed “Thrill Capital of the World,” today debuted CraZanity, the world’s tallest pendulum ride. At a record- breaking 170-feet in the air, the massive giant disk reaches speeds up to 75 miles-per-hour, as it whips back and forth — higher and higher giving riders a staggering view of the world below them.

“Six Flags is known world-wide for the biggest and best thrills bar none and the record-breaking CraZanity ride delivers a crazy, high adrenaline experience very different from anything else we have in our unparalleled thrill ride arsenal,” said Park President, Neal Thurman. “With 100 extra operating days, we are now open every single day which greatly expands our travel industry opportunities and allows us to better leverage the vast population of 24 million Southern California residents.”

The new 365-day operating calendar enables the Los Angeles-based theme park to work extensively with the destination travel markets. Southern California is a noted theme park mecca, welcoming more than 47 million visitors annually. Six Flags now has an operating schedule on par with all other theme parks in Southern California.

The park has done an extensive renovation of the Boardwalk area with new theming and attractions. Highlights include:

  • CraZanity – where 40 riders experience weightlessness swinging at speeds up to 75 miles-per-hour, and reaching a world-record 170-feet high;
  • Enhanced attractions featuring the Jammin’ Bumper Cars; and
  • New dining, games and shopping venues.Six Flags Magic Mountain 2018 Season Passes and Memberships are currently on sale.

The newly constructed building that houses the DreamWorks Theatre is inspired by Mission revival architecture and harkens back to the Golden Age of Hollywood’s Art Deco period of the 1920s, including a box office ticket seller booth, reminiscent of the time period and staffed by a three-dimensional usher asleep on the job.

The Cauldron Casts a Spell in Buena Park

On a moonlight night, across the street from Knott’s Berry Farm arises a new bar/restaurant that will immerse you into the wonderfully spooky dwelling of Witches and Spooks alike. The Cauldron Spirits and Brews is NOW open for all to experience, the tavern-like lounge with an atmosphere that is inviting to get together with dear friends and talk about the spooky things in life over a drink. Celebrating it the evening of it’s grand opening are the many people who helped bring it to life alongside the Creator/Owner Lara Hanneman, people of the press and of the City of Buena Park. An evening of welcoming this new magical and spooky place in the heart of Buena Park.

The Cauldron is more than just a bar, there is also a whole menu that features French-casual bites with a wicked twist, local craft 
beer, themed cocktails and a wine from various regions in California. Their house spirit “Drink”, The Grey Witch, is wonderfully delectable and refreshing. But there is more than what meets the eye. Our personal favorite treat from the menu are the Bacon Jams, if you love Bacon, be sure to try this smoky and sweet treat when you visit. Our other favorite item is the Boeuf Bourguignon which is a delicious French Beef Stew made famous by the late Julia Child. Keep in mind when planning your visit to the cauldron that the kitchen is open until 11:0 p.m.

The menu and atmosphere is tailored and created by the brilliant, Lara Hanneman. Having worked as Creative Director for Knott’s Berry and Scary Farm, she brought her talent, imagination, taste and eye to this new and exciting establishment. Lara and her team poured so much passion into creating this Witch themed Bar/restaurant/Lounge, all who enter will fall in love with the atmosphere and magic. This is truly a wonderful and unique place that one should not miss out on. As someone who LOVES everything spooky, I immediately got excited when I heard about it and the people who are behind it. When we entered the tavern, it is everything that I hoped for and so much more.

There is so much to take in from the artwork (which is featuring art by many amazing and talented local artists), the magic, and the secrets. From the magic glass over the fireplace where ghosts and spirits visit the tavern to the cauldron that is always bubbling. With Magic, Nothing is EVER as it seems, with The Cauldron comes surprises. One can discover the secret room… perhaps when approaching the Book Case. MWHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA!  3:)

Overall this is an amazing new place where one who is looking for an immersive and magical evening should visit. Perhaps, even those who are looking to embrace the spookiness of life or even visit with their coven. This is a definite MUST for those who love Horror and Halloween. There is magic and secrets awaiting for those who visit The Cauldron. The Cauldron Spirits and Brews is open Wednesday – Sunday from 2:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m. And is located literally across the street from Knott’s Berry Farm.

I hope you enjoy this look inside The Cauldron. More Info on The Cauldron Spirits and Brews is provided down below.

Knott’s Scary Farm: What Lurks Within – Dress Rehearsals

Days before opening night of Knott’s Scary Farm, everyone has to be trained on the operations of the event, so everything runs smoothly and is wonderfully terrifying. There is a hustle and bustle of everyone from build, wardrobe, cast and crew to prepare for the opening of Scary Farm. The day we visited they were focusing on training monsters, black out and guest control for mazes. We saw this process for Paranormal Inc.,Voodoo, and Toothfairy. It will be the first time all of these teams work the maze with guests (guests meaning street monsters who are going through). It is wonderful to see the excitement on the faces of all the streets monsters from Fiesta De Los Muertos, The Hollows, Carnevil and Ghost Town. They are waiting in anticipation to have a good scare from their monster brothers and sisters. Also, since these monsters will always be in the streets, this gives them the opportunity to experience these mazes and to see what the design and build team created.

The First People you encounter at Scary Farm when you head towards your maze of choice is Guest Control, a team of people with white shirts and black ties. They guide you to ensure you get in line for your maze of choice for either Gen. Admission or Fright Lane. When you are in line, they keep line flow at a good pace and count groups for specific mazes that have pre-shows so it is not too many people with you but just enough to ensure a steady pace of line flow.

UO5A8811wtmk

We interviewed Donald and Deanna, Guest Control from Toothfairy. They informed us what is gone over during dress rehearsals,

“I’m explaining to them what to do with Guest Control, informing them about the maze, controlling the guests, keeping the maze clean and safe.” -Donald

“Our main job for Guest Control pretty much is keeping everyone in order, how many people come in, and we have the clicker right here.”

-Deanna

Inside the maze looking after the monsters, ensuring their safety and guiding you when the maze becomes confusing or super dark are The Blackouts. Even though they maybe invisible at times, they are always there, lurking in the shadows. Before the monsters of streets head into Paranormal Inc. for a scare, Bonnie (the team leader for blackouts for Paranormal and it’s her very first year working Scary Farm), gathers her army of blackouts and goes over the safety and daily procedures. Also what to do when guests want out and everything to know about the maze. Also she gets them excited for another year of Scary Farm. During her meeting with the blackouts she states,

“Just know I am here for you guys, we are all a team: line control, talent, all of us. We got each other’s backs.”

-Bonnie

UO5A8767wtmk

With every department from Monsters lead by the Cast Lead, Guest Control and Black Outs working together creates a great system for the maze to be terrifying and safe. When we head in, some monsters are in their masks and costume and some are there without that but their characters show through movement, scare and facial expression. Everyone is energetic and on point, it is wonderful that they are given dress rehearsal to get in the groove of their characters and environment. You can see all the action of Paranormal Inc. and Voodoo in our video below.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our article and video. Thank you to the people of Guest Control and Black Outs for ensuring the best and safe experiences at Scary Farm. We here at the Knott’s Network are grateful for your dedication and for what you do. Thank You ❤ Scary Farm starts up again this Thursday, so be sure not to miss out. We will see you all soon… In The Fog.
