I'm sure it will be a fun coaster. Maybe some cool effects will happen in the tunnel right before you take off backwards. It's not exactly what I had in mind as far as layout. Also, I guess they will have to wait to send off another train until they see or get a green light that the one train has already started the launch forward from the tunnel. At least we know it will be two trains from the video. Finally, Full Throttle <<<

I think it's longer than that! They'll have to wait till it clears the final top hat. It could clear the launch, not make it over the top hat and roll back which would not be so good if there was already another train launched!

^^Ha, I didn't even think about the Revolution OTSR's versus this with lap bar only! Guess they'll have to come up with a new excuse for why it has OTSR's on it!

 

Haha... Every Q&A the park holds from here on out, they will be reminded of this fact. lol

Thats what i'm betting also..... I have a question for you though. Since this is apparently a new themed area, does this mean that there will be future expansion there (like new rides later on?) it would seem pretty pointless to have a new themed area for just one ride right?

Our long regional airtime deficiency endures... WTF. MM continues its inversion infatuation. Hooray, two more to add to the coveted crown (cue sarcastic smirk).

 

Yes, I see the top hat. Nice. Just like Xcelerator down I-5 - but loopier. One signature element does not an El Toro, Skyrush, Phoenix, NTAG, or Apollo's Chariot make. Congratulations Sea World - with modest little Manta you have a firm grip on the west coast airtime crown.

 

I was hoping for a longer, more aggressive Sky Rocket, something closer to Maverick.

 

Premier coasters are solid. I'm confident FT will deliver a fun experience. It simply isn't the one I crave. I'll save my pennies for Outlaw Run and iRAT, the likely cream of the 2013 coaster crop.

I am not that impressed with Full Throttle. The ride is too short, and having it stop in the tunnel, launching backwards and forward again is not a smart move on the design aspect of the ride. The train should just automaticcally be accelerated when it flies through the tunnel and continue on it’s journey. Who would want it to stop suddenly in the middle of the ride like that, not me. The loop is the only thing interesting having the trains on top and inside, the rest of the ride is very short, and should be much longer through the terrain.

Third train on the transfer or are they only buying two trains?
Was just announced on the Six Flags corporate call that Full Throttle will run two trains with 18 riders each.

I don't think I could have made it any more clear.

 

The ride will have TWO TRAINS*

In their defense, when we as enthusiasts hear rumors of a park adding a new coaster, we imagine what we want the thing to look like (like me for instance, I imagined this coaster being a larger version of Maverick, crossed with Formula Rossa - with a few gimmicky elements a long the way). Then we're disappointed when it doesn't turn out the way we had imagined.

 

All-in-all, we're gonna have tons of fun on this coaster when it opens (unless you're just looking for things to not like!).

BUT HOW MANY TRAINS WILL IT HAVE??

 

Just kidding

 

It's not everything I could have hoped and wished for, but it looks fun and unique. It seems like the park is getting a pretty good bang for their buck, and I'm sure the GP will like it a lot. I think the nearest hope for an airtime machine in SFMM's future would be a Rocky Mountain Reno on Colossus.

It's not exactly what I thought it'd be, and I hate that the top hat is the final element, but the backwards launch looks like a blast, and I think it looks cool with the top hat going over the look like that. I wouldn't mind having it at my home park!

^^ I was thinking the same thing. SFMM's best chance at airtime is Colossus, rumoured to be next up for the Rocky Mountain Treatment.

 

In the meantime, I quite like Full Throttle.

 

I know I'm being a geek, but I'd like to know the track length, cost of the ride and the trains in more detail.

Just showed my 14 year old son the video and his exact words were "I'd rather have Log Jammer".

 

The ride looks "ok" but I'm sad they aren't doing more with the area and all the space they cleared from removing log jammer. Doesn't look like it's using the terrain at all which is sad.

 

It does look like some parts may be missing from the video though, just have to wait and see I guess.
