Justice League: Battle for Metropolis at Six Flags Magic Mountain

Six Flags Magic Mountain is thrilling.  Its exciting and fast paced.  Its heart pounding roller coasters from one edge of its 262 acres to the other. Six Flags Magic Mountain holds the world record for most roller coasters in an amusement park.  Magic Mountain is an awesome place to spend a day and they are always adding new rides to the mix.  Today we are going to talk about their newest ride.  Justice League: Battle for Metropolis.  

Metropolis is under attack and the Justice League is there to save the day.  There's a catch though, they need your help.  Join them and you become members of the Justice League Reserve Team.  Enter into the Hall of Justice and be ready to start your adventure.  

The line to enter is right outside of these huge doors.  Magic Mountain employees will let you in in small groups.  When you enter into the first room you are greeted by three large statues of Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman.  (Super cool place for a selfie)! On the wall across from it is a huge screen where your Justice League friends will give you the details on what is going on and why you are needed.  

The message starts with Superman himself and he is joined by Batman, but is soon broke in by villains Lex Luthor and the Joker.  The story unfolds and we are needed to help stop the spreading of deadly laughing gas.  This is a huge task to take on and they need more hands to get this done.  Don't worry though, they have a plan.  

We then enter to the next room where we are visited by Cyclops.  He is there to tell us all the info we need to succeed  on our mission.  The Justice League has a new tool to fight this battle and we will be equipped to use it.  So far we are just moving in a clump of people but on the back left side of the room there is a door.  Its near the door we entered the room from.  This will be where you enter the last part of the line and the whole clump of people in the room will funnel through it.  Keep your group together at this point since its easy to get separated in the chaos.  

When you enter the line you start to see the mission unfold.  The line isn't very long and you can see where the ride loads.  The sides of the walls are loaded with signs telling you all the little details you might need such as scoring and what all you are going to need. Yes! I said scoring!  This is a great place to get your competition on.  Do the best you can and you will see your results as you go through the game.  You will be loaded into a car, or your Reserve Team Vehicle, that seats you and five of your friends.  Since this is an all immersive experience you will need to put on some 3D glasses. As far as 3D glasses go these are great.  They aren't your basic theme park glasses.  They will actually stay on your head and really they don't look as silly as many of them do.  

In your Reserve Team Vehicle is a blaster that shoots EMP waves to disable electronics and stun humans.  This will be your tool to beat the baddies.  Each gun shoots a different color blast out and you can see what color is yours on the dash in front of you.  Use the gun and fight the bad guys, but  don't shoot the good ones.  I'm not sure if it hurts your score or not, but even if it doesn't bad form! After you have learned finished the game you will find out your score and how you compare to others that have competed.  I asked an employee and the scores reset at night so I'm sure that there are people out there that can beat this score, but Jeremy got in the top 1% of all time!  He is very good at these games.  He beats me at Disneyland's Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters as well.  

After you see your score you have one more surprise in store.  Harley Quinn is there to blast you one last time.  Survive Harley and go to the end of the ride.  There you will see a score board that has all your scores and where you ranked for the day.  Overall this ride is a very cool addition to the Six Flags Magic Mountain family.  

What is your favorite Six Flags Magic Mountain ride? 

Hope your travels are thrilling.
