This Saturday, starting at 10am, season pass holders can show their pass at the entrance of Railblazer and get to ride it!

Sweet. Just a little over a month to go until I can ride it myself!

Here at the passholder preview for Railblazer, and I can confirm these RMC Raptors ride just as insane as they look. The airtime is ridiculously strong ejector, the dive loop whips you around in the best way possible, the whole ride is paced perfectly with it’s crazy speed (very happy it didn’t end up trimmed ;) ) For sure a top 10 coaster, if you’re near NorCal or San Antonio and haven’t ridden a Raptor yet, get out there and ride!!! :airtime:

We've got an official opening date. Now I debate if I want to brave the opening day crowds, or wait (though, thanks to the Presidents' Day sale, I can arm myself with a FastLane).

6 rides today. Here’s my hot take: This thing has insane pacing and is likely my favorite coaster in California (I’ve been on them all) and is in my top tier of 11 RMCs. Will post more thoughts later

Sounds exactly what I thought about Wonder Woman. The pacing on these Raptors is insane.

I've been debating a late summer trip to CGA and this really cements it for me. Looks like an awesome ride!
