I think Premier is established enough as a launch company that it wouldnt happen. MM will be selling the 2nd train within the year anyway so it wont matter. ;)


I don't get it :?r


Magic Mountain almost never operate their coasters at full capacity (or even close). So the second train would be unnecessary because it would never get used. www.youtube.com/watch?v=xECUrlnXCqk

Lies! They'll just roll out the 2nd train when it's time to maintain the 1st train.

AHA!!!! The rumors are NOT true! They are not using super-glue to hold the ride together, they are in fact, using bolts! This myth is BUSTED!

This will eventually become the worlds tallest, fastest, and only coastery thing with a loop under it. And if you happen to have a waffle stuffed in your pocket while riding it, it will be the tallest, fastest, most waffley tophat over a loop in the world!

This is going to be an awesome element! (Don't forget your waffle!)

Ha! You thought this was going to be a top hat over the loop, didn't you? And you thought this ride was going to be named after an energy drink, didn't you? SURPRISE!!! It's actually themed to Roller Coaster Tycoon, and this is the moment where the train fly's off the tracks and explodes into a giant ball of fire!

In case you might not have been aware, Magic Mountain is also home to a water park (and a quite nice one, too!)

Unless they're using super glue to hold those bolts in place . . . ;)

I really couldn't have been the only one to think of an RCT2 message box saying "12 people have died in an accident on YOLOcoaster" when I read this.
You would be genuinely shocked to find out how comforting it is to be functionally insane.

I like how they have an arrow molded into the track so they don't put it in backwards.

^ I'm wondering was that inspired from customer feedback, maybe some park they sold a ride too was having difficulty figuring out which way they track went during construction :lmao:

Also thanks for another Yolo update Robb, Sir Clinksalot :b
