^We've had two threads on this.

No.

$50 million dollars and technology that, no matter what they say about their timeline of building the ride, isn't going to function reliably for a long, long time. Not to mention the fact that Magic Mountain already has that same exact ride, minus the unreliable technology and the closed spaces to simulate zero-gravity, that offers almost that same amount of airtime already.
Last Ride: Space Mountain: Mission 2 (DLP)
Next Ride: Intimidator 305 (KD)

The consensus seems to be that this will be Intamin or Premier, and will be pretty impressive. I can't wait!

^ The "consensus" is based off rumors and nothing else, though.

Well let's just say I was using that word "loosely".

2 + 2 = donkey!

Just returned from the 2012 IAAPA: International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Leadership Conference. Premier was the sponsor of the day at Six Flags Magic Mountain and for the conference keynote speech by Six Flags COO Al Weber Jr., Ph.D.

The head of Premier used to be pretty high up in the food chain at SFMM in the early 90's, fyi.

I love donkeys more than me.

Back in October while waiting to board Green Lantern, I saw several people escorted to the front of the line by what looked to be Six Flags management. All those people that were escorted to the front of the line had on polo shirts with the Premier logo on it. At the time I thought it was S&S/Arrow, so I didn't think anything of it.
