SFMM has announced (via their Fright Fest website) all the details for Fright Fest 2011.
Here is the complete list of mazes, scare zones, and attractions:
Willoughby’s Haunted Mansion- Eerie twists await you at the Granddaddy of all mazes….there’s hair raising terror around each nightmarish turn and dreadful screams down the long twisting hallways.
Lecter’s Slaughterhouse- Step on these deadly docks and enter a family run business specializing in tasty human treats.
Warehouse 13- The ultimate test of bravery is at the toxic warehouse where employees are less than happy about seeing visitors. Be forewarned, work is mandatory and escape impossible.
Bite II- The sexy and sinister are out for a BITE in this recently uncovered nest of the undead. Will you be the one bitten?
NEW! Gypsy Hollow- A horrible battle between the nomadic gypsies and the local townspeople has continued for years. Visit the one area in the park where there’s always a full moon and werewolves are rumored to hunt for blood.
NEW! The Wastelands- In the darkest wastelands, an ancient beast stalks the night, worshiped by barbarian humanoids and feared by the modern world. Many have entered the darkness, none have returned. Enter the world known as The Wastelands if you dare.
City Under Seige-The insane and unruly run rampant in the streets of DC Universe. Prepare to feel really uncomfortable with these comic-like characters running amuck.
Exile Hill- The dead have risen and are looking for new souls to take on this dark and sinister hill that surrounds Willoughby’s Haunted Mansion.
Hillbilly Massacre- These nomadic hillbillies enter the California area every Halloween. No one knows where they come from or where they go once the holiday’s over. All that’s known is that they’re the most gruesome creatures ever seen by man. A family of demonic, backwards folks hunting the area for human skin.
Foggy Nights (New!)- One of Gotham’s most notorious villains has released fear toxin into the night air at Batman The Ride.
Colossus Backwards!- A Fright Fest Exclusive! Travel nearly one mile on this classic “woodie” backwards! Only during Fright Fest does Colossus run backwards.
Terror Tracks- Face your fears and experience the world’s greatest thrills, with the lights off! Tatsu, Apocalypse, Viper, The Riddler’s Revenge, and Goliath will all run without track lights, bringing a new dimension to nighttime thrills.
X2: Area 19- Get launched into an extreme high speed, heart-pounding journey through an abandoned facility captured by aliens.
Thumper Bumpers- Pulsating sounds and driving bass rock the craziest bumper cars into a totally new and extreme driving experience.
NEW! Nightmares – A Twisted Tale-The evil nightmare has never been so edgy as your favorite bedtime stories take on a new and twisted tale.
New! Dr. Fright’s CarnEvil- Join the haunted party with zombie performers, hit songs and red-hot choreography starring the murderous Dr. Fright. The most wicked dance in the west is only recommended for the strong of heart.
New! Off With Your Head- Ghoul Rock has gone pop! Dead or alive, this music spectacular is sure to entertain.
Hypnotist- Prepare yourself for a mystical, edge-of-your-seat, comical stage show.
Fright Fest runs from October 7-31. This will be the BIGGEST Fright Fest EVER!

On Sunday, a woman visited Magic Mountain with her Pomeranian in her car. She would have taken it into the park if her carrying bag hadn't ripped open. So she left the dog in the car with water while she visited the park. Security found the dog and put it in the kennel. When refilling the dog's water, an employee left the kennel door open and the dog ran out and away. The dog hasn't been found. Here is a video clip of the story:

Any other Fright Fest 2011 plans will be announced TOMORROW, September 14th, on http://frightfest.sixflags.com.
That's it! Magic Mountain is no longer open on weekdays. It is open on weekends, holidays, and Fridays in October. So if you would like to plan a visit, be sure to plan a visit on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday. Check out Six Flags Magic Mountain's calendar for park operating days and hours.
On September 2nd, Six Flags Magic Mountain announced that the countdown is on for the removal of Deja Vu. Deja Vu will be relocated to Six Flags New England in 2012, where it will be renamed Goliath. It has not been announced when the last day to ride Deja Vu is, but we will update you when we know.
Deja Vu was one of our favorite coasters at SFMM, but it suffered a lot of downtime. Usually it would be down every off-season for annual maintenance, so you could only ride it it late Spring and Summer. Vekoma's Giant Inverted Boomerang design (Deja Vu) had many flaw and many modifications had to be made to open the attraction. It was becoming very expensive to maintain, and this is why Six Flags will never purchase a coaster from Vekoma again.
What did you think about Deja Vu? Do you want it to go? Comment on this post and let us know.
On Thursday, September 1st, Six Flags Magic Mountain announced Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom via the GoBigCam. It is going to be the tallest and fastest drop tower in the world. Manufactured by Intamin, this tower will be mounted on both sides of Superman: Escape From Krypton. Riders will be pulled up slowly to about 400 feet in the air. Then, there will be a short pause at the top. After that, riders drop at speeds of up to 85 miles per hour back to the loading station. This five second long freefall may be the scariest ride at the park. This will also offer a whole different view of Superman: Escape From Krypton. Lex Luthor is expected to open in Spring 2012, and Mountain Geek will be here with complete construction and opening coverage.
Here is what the new ride will look like:
Finally, to close with two YouTube videos, the first of the announcement of Lex Luthor and the other of the GoBigCam announcement:
