Goliath rollercoaster image - Six Flags Magic Mountain

Suspended rollercoaster Ninja is currently closed at Six Flags Magic Mountain, with the park yet to reveal when it will reopen.

The news was revealed through Magic Mountain's Twitter account, which stated simply "Ninja is temporarily closed" on Tuesday. The news brings the total number of rollercoasters out of action at the park to 3, with Batman: The Ride closed for repainting and Goliath also shut down for unknown reasons.

No reason has been given for the closure of Ninja, and no target date for it be reopened has been named. Six Flags Magic Mountain is currently only open at weekends, so engineers should be able to work on any problems during weekdays.

Goliath has closed since before Christmas, having only recently reopened following annual maintenance and a new paint job. The coaster reopened several weeks later than originally planned, so it seems possible that the cause of the delay may also be the cause of the new closure.

Meanwhile, Batman: The Ride is undergoing a planned repaint, although the park has again failed to give an estimate of when it will be back in operation. Work appears to be well underway judging by a picture posted on Screamscape. The picture shows that Batman's track is being painted a deep blue color, in contrast to its current grey.
