Summary
In 1962, Page Newman built the Nobbys Beach chairlift that later formed part of the Magic Mountain entertainment park. A cafeteria was built on top of the outcrop. Intensive development commenced in 1983. $13.6M was spent to create the Magic Mountain theme park. Magic Mountain closed in 1987 and the land was subdivided into two portions in 1993. The land was sold and is now the site of apartments, restaurants and shops.
