Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Sky tower was open, Slingshot was open, Ninja was open, Sky Coaster was open. I'm pretty sure if all those can open in the wind that there was today, X2 can.

 

They were letting people line up when the park opened but not sure how long that was going on for.

 

Hope it did open. Was talking to someone who I assume is an enthusiast about what was his best plan on getting on X2 today. I told him to go back at the magic 3:00 hour. Would be a shame if he missed it.

Looks really cool going over the Superman plaza like that....will be too bad if they end up having to do some obnoxious netting to prevent thugs from throwing crap at passing trains (obviously you won't notice the netting from the tower, I'm saying it will take away from the beauty of it at ground level.

I can't believe how awesome it looks! Does anyone know when they are shooting to open it? I'm sure it has been asked before, but I couldn't find the reply.

Superman was open today! Which means the plaza was open too! Which means that I got some pics (terrible quality because I took them with my cell phone though)!

 

The track in the plaza is higher up than it looks and the part where it looked like toy could touch is just out of reach. I'm 5'9" and my arms were probably about 1 foot from the track itself standing on my tip toes and trying to reach.

On a side note, Riddler's Revenge was back to 2 trains today!

 

Anywyays, here's the pictures!

This is how far the track extends from the Superman Plaza toward Gold Rusher. This was taken right at the fence next to the track.

Side shot of the track over the Superman Plaza. Taken from the same location as the first photo.

The super sick looking dive loop thingy! It looks so spectacular from almost every angle! Taken from the other side of the plaza.

Just wondering but can we just call it a Flying Snake Dive? It looks a lot like Storm Runners.

Anyone know why Lex Luthor was stuck at the top when I drove by at 7:40 this morning?

 

When I passed by again at 11:30, it was gone.

 

It wasn't stuck. That's the normal brake position to make sure the ride flips as little as possible.

Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom, not Green Lantern. The technicians may have been doing their morning routine checkups especially if the park is opening that day.

 

Those new pics have got me real excited! Can't wait to see the loop, station, testing and especially curious tto see what the theming will be about after what Tim said!

I would call it that, but rcdb doesn't seem to think so.

Time to scream and shout and get your YOLO on!!!! Here it comes... another awesome YOLOcoaster update!!!

 

1.thumb.jpg.e4f8259b46b9bd4ffbc84d25e62098f4.jpg

Before we get to the YOLO pics... first we have to take these fresh new Six Flags Magic Mountain buses to get to the park!

2.thumb.jpg.d3149dbfa434a3550b235e0a245506ce.jpg

The jury is still out, at least for me, as to how well these are working. They have these queues set up, and when they are full it takes a lot longer to load the buses since everyone enters through two doors, instead of 15+ rows.

 

The bus loops seems rather odd that even if you park in the first lot, the buses have to drive all the way down past Scream, turn around and come back before they drop you off, I think because of how the doors open. Honestly, if you've parked in that first lot, it's actually more efficient just to walk instead of taking the bus.

2a.thumb.jpg.748d4c1af6119d2ad162c7ad9932a166.jpg

There was also no signage at the bus drop off/pick up on the park side. Just these temporary queues.

 

Not exactly sure how well they are working, but I feel like I saw a lot more people walking up to the park than before. Maybe this is a good thing? =)

That's right... my pass is made of gold and I'm awesome!

4.thumb.jpg.83dc34255c1ec905ca7eb6c4a67c5d3f.jpg

"COME AT ME BRO!!!!" lol "YOLO!!!!!"

(Seriously, how can you not poke a little bit of fun at the park when they use sayings like YOLO in their promo videos and have banners like these!) =)

5.thumb.jpg.b2d146d6fad6499679190ae5b3e8cc2c.jpg

SURPRISE!!! Bet you didn't know that YOLOcoaster is actually going to merge into Goldrusher to become the worlds fastest and only launched mine train coaster!

6.thumb.jpg.18b272fa0cad42045039d7848246720b.jpg

And over here we have.... dirt!

7.thumb.jpg.24bfe808d62b94c75f849dfdd4ebb8f0.jpg

A close-up of the dirt and bones sticking up out of the ground.

8.thumb.jpg.5ef6054216fedeb5b96784cbddc21b30.jpg

A quick look at dirt, faded Tatsu, and the location where you will soon be able to buy YOLOwings and YOLOfries! (Seriously, marketing people, use these names, we are giving them to you for free!)

9.thumb.jpg.4459cebbb9be1b47c4ecb8116e830606.jpg

Here is where YOLOcoaster will do some kind of funky twisty, divey thing and then TAKE THE TUNNEL!!!

10.thumb.jpg.db20e82e9201cb2dc8fdcfb213ce8fe2.jpg

And then out of the tunnel, YOLOcoaster will merge with GoldRusher and become YOLOrusher!

11.thumb.jpg.63b15d7e9c70124dd348a52913c7fb3a.jpg

They really need to fix that little bit on the Superman logo before people's OCD goes insane!

12.thumb.jpg.867377900f4b9e53380c134af37abeb3.jpg

What an awesome photo of Goliath!

13.thumb.jpg.026e92c9d61dfa2cfff9d163d1d3849c.jpg

You can see the "backside" of the Log Flume station a bit better here. We were told that the station is pretty much going to stay there empty for a while, and eventually would become retail or something...

14.thumb.jpg.946f183d487ebcc826165708ddc63673.jpg

Looks awesome!

15.thumb.jpg.40d635df15a26ff8c58840d4a94ab27c.jpg

YOLO!!!! THROUGH THE TREES!!!!

16.thumb.jpg.9aa17898ad05c043dd96da1c1fa0e7b6.jpg

TAKE THE TUNNEL!!!!

(Seriously, Apocalypse is jealous of YOLO's tunnel!)

17.thumb.jpg.26ecda0c892b3d750752e858857e87c6.jpg

Sexy close-up shot.

18.thumb.jpg.58cba4e318cd6255da995324478ecb45.jpg

Curvy, curve, curve, curve.... curve!

19.thumb.jpg.1c6ae10e8f38c9221301717f816562d4.jpg

And another angle of said twistyness just to make you all happy.

20.thumb.jpg.2f84b6797305d6029dedef62d99182e0.jpg

OMG! Another angle!!! WHEEE!!!!!

21.thumb.jpg.b9db3dc779e2f0fc6f7aa47f1dd5242d.jpg

Here's what the area approaching the old Log Jammer station looks like now.

22.thumb.jpg.c2b3d449ebc8c2655660cd14376d1c97.jpg

This is the view from the entrance of the log flume building.

23.thumb.jpg.3a966b7118a0638e5d7e9342c97b9537.jpg

HA! We tricked you!!!! YOLOcoaster isn't going to become YOLOrusher after all! It's actually going to have a HUGE loop and top hat!!!! I know, I know, sorry to disappoint you! =)

24.thumb.jpg.dfe8c073fd37a3ea0d8aa06637cb9cb2.jpg

This shot is kind of artsy...I think... or maybe it's fartsy?

25.thumb.jpg.9de833dd1b6978364c803cb87e904298.jpg

Bones and things...

26.thumb.jpg.ec4a37c9799eddbe8ba02bc9a4e0117b.jpg

HELLYEAHTOTHEMAX!!!!!

27.thumb.jpg.877e9a9044b6a381e628110d4c77753e.jpg

In all seriousness, I've never met a Premier Rides coaster I didn't like, so I think this ride will end up being quite full of kick ass. But for those of you who have recently asked us "Why all the YOLO" let me explain something....

When Six Flags Magic Mountain first released their Promo Video, it stared out with YOLO!!!!

yolodumb.png.5030e2b369efeaf7741a915b4e4c8d2f.png

Watch the video below and you'll see it for yourself:

And then at IAAPA, Premier Rides had these awesome YOLO pins and lanyards:28.thumb.jpg.1b5bd31a981954f057a8bc78c4216542.jpg

And we all know how totally silly "YOLO" is - so in short, when someone gives you something that easy to have a little fun with... TPR is gonna take it all the way! Remember, we didn't write it or come up with it, we're just exploiting it! And it's all in good fun! YOLO!!!!

 

Thanks for reading! Now...

Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if SFMM themselves gives in to the YOLO silliness come WCB time.

I dunno, I always thought they were slightly annoyed at the whole "TAKE THE TUNNEL" thing, when, if you remember, it was something THEY created!
