When summer winds down, as it usually and unarguably does around Labor Day Weekend, theme park fans can feel as blue as the bluest swirl of cotton candy. The traditional season of trying out new rides, again and again, is coming to a quick close, and while the major attraction-packed destinations will stay open through the wintertime, summer theme-park-ing has a specialness to it that cannot be denied.
But don't let the warm-weather wind-down get you too blue; this is often when theme parks make their big announcements for the following year, in terms of upcoming builds. Six Flags Magic Mountain just made such an announcement, on Thursday, Aug. 31, and it involves the "world's tallest pendulum ride." Southern California, meet CraZanity, which will arrive at the Santa Clarita theme park in the late spring of 2018.
