The Magic Pagoda also had a room where they took an audience member and put them in a chamber and made them disappear before your very eyes.

I know - cause I was one of the people who disappeared!

I miss the Magic Mountain of the 1970s. Now it's so Tragic Mountain.

This post knocked loose some memories from 1978 when I was taken on the typical So-Cal theme park tour by my grandparents. In the Magic Pagoda I think I remember a black light lit alley with Day-Glo colored laundry hanging between the apartment buildings...Or was that a different attraction with some sorta zany ethnic neighborhood tenament theme?. The Pagoda seemed sort of lame compared to Disneyland stuff ("Tragic Pagoda" is fitting), but the dragon room was my first exposure to a strobe light and I love strobe lights to this very day. So relaxing. (At the motel we stayed in near Magic Mountain I saw my first cockroach ever...California seemed so exotic!)

You know, I also forgot about.,
The Magic Mountain Sugar RUSH.
The Magic Pagoda was probably even "mentally" cooler probably because they were selling candied apples and banana splits at the ticket office.
Like every other ride.

Oh man, Dont even get me started on Magic Mountain stories. We used to wreak unholy havoc on that place. Those poor trolls never knew what hit them.
The magic Pagoda also had the room that showed a projection of a tiger that would run a cross the room and some dude doin karate moves...I think.. Wasn't there also a pitch black maze you had to get through without getting a bloody nose?
