  1. I too had to leave for work. I mean, I get it. This isn't Disney, or even Universal. But c'mon. You say you're going to have ride time for your Ap's, then get the ride going. I wasn't even mad that they took forever. I was more upset at the smug nature of the team members standing at the gate. Each one of them had a pretty poor attitude any time someone asked a question. Frankly, I'd be okay if Six Flags didn't get another coaster the next year or two, and took that money to funnel into training and operations to better what's already there for the guests. But, we all know that's a pipe dream..
  2. X2 this past Sunday at Six Flags. First time ride on the front row. I wish there was a smoother way for the cars to rotate, because they get pretty bouncy during the rollovers, but man does the view make up for it on the front row.
  3. I'm just excited to see an onride POV of this thing! I'm going Friday for the Gold pass preview, so I've at least got something to look forward to at the end of the week.
  4. Not to worry, it'll be open by then. It debuts next weekend. Welcome to the states, and I hope you have a good trip!
  5. Looks really good! Looking forward to seeing it in person soon. It does appear that 3D and projections are Uni's and Disney's 'crutch', albeit doing them really well. I guess it's a matter of time before the wall is broken again and we see some really fun new stuff. Apparently the ride tech for avatar should be cool, considering we're apparently supposed to be riding on the back of a banshee. Curious how that'll work out.
  6. That means shorter lines for us What makes the Top Gun Stall different from a Zero G Stall? Is it just Six Flags trying to make it sound like a unique element? Top gun stall rolls up and in, hangs there for a bit, then rolls out either the same or opposite way. It's close to a zero g roll, but it's bigger. Anyone else feel free to correct me if I'm off on it. Edit: watch this, and you'll see: [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  7. Also a small note: Iger himself said this last year at the shareholder meeting that a third gate is not even on the radar right now for Anaheim. Given all the projects that the company is doing right now, I think it's safe to say they're going to heavily focus on the current parks and enhancing Disneyland, and maybe spots of Dca, while working with Anaheim to work on a better structure for parking, and possibly a redo for GardenWalk. But a third gate, if it'll ever happen, probably won't be even a possible reality for years.
  8. Can we, just for a second, admire how great a writer Brady is? Sully Sullivan. He could have asked any kid that grew up on that film to know what that character's name really is, and not missed the mark on that...
  9. I just want a testing video that shows the trains rolling through the high-five element. Can't wait to see how quick the green side whips through that half of it.
  10. Geezus. I leave for a few hours and end up sifting through some massive sh!t. I don't know what happened between TPR and whatever site Robb was talking about to keep other photos off here, but if they don't want them, they're the ones in charge. All I care about is seeing how great this coaster is going to be. All the drama can be saved for somebody else's mama. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  11. Six flags season pass holder and entitled in the same sentence. It's easy to see that with Disney AP, but Six flags?
  12. This is what I was talking about with Jew. They drop a vine of the first drop, not even racing, and then let the fan sites do the work tomorrow. Come on, this is Southern California. Hollywood is a few miles away, so how hard is it to strap a handful of cameras to the first train, and film it's first run? ...wait, that'd require money. ...and this is Six Flags. Nevermind.
  13. I'm a marketing major, and from everything I have studied and watched (both in and out of class), there's A LOT of companies that are still floundering around with social media. Which sucks, because a fun thing like SFMM could really take advantage of all the social media platforms and run with it, especially since their guest demographic is primarily teens and young adults, and are the sole users of the platforms.
  14. I saw somewhere on Twitter that there's supposed to be a 'media' group checking out TC on Wednesday. They could possibly give it a run through with people there to watch and write about it, but I honestly don't completely know and can only speculate. I just can't wait for this to open! This is the first coaster in a long time that I've been excited about.
  15. Man, they are dropping some big cash on this promotion. Wonder who they got to work on the diamonds for them, and I'm curious how much those are going to go for on Ebay, given someone might sell one.
  16. Any way you can find and post the video of the news cast? EDIT: Found it. Its definitely a unit for Paint the Night, but its really hard to tell which one. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be] [attachment=1]PIC.jpg[/attachment] [attachment=0]disneypaintthenightmickeyfriendsfinaleunit.jpg[/attachment] Could it be Mickey's unit and needs to be assembled? That's what it looks like to me.
  17. I'm guessing manufacturer, but, and I know its a wiki page, that page said Giovanola fashioned steel for Intamin and B&M behind the scenes, so that makes me wonder if they manufactured their own stuff too. Which now means they've got to get it done by a third party.
  18. Put this ontop of the old Rocket Rods platform, and Tomorrowland instantly has a new popular thrill ride.
  19. This is a view of their rapids ride. And some eagle-eyed people will notice some other attractions in this image as well. Here is a larger image So what all is in this shot? This park is going be massive from the photos surfacing, but I can't place what's what!
  20. Pretty much this. Plus, if you watch this video (towards 2:26/2:30), that long green stretch of track is the brake run pre-station. And if you look at the photos in this thread, it's angled towards the station, not the lift. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWJY62lZ2rM
