Was anything ever put in the spot where Flashback was, or is it still vacant?

Actually they did use it as an expansion for HH, its a Cabana spot now.

 

From the overhead shots on Google Maps before zooming in really close it still shows that area as a vacant lot. There has always been a little cabana area right next to where Flashback was, but I don't think they ever expanded into that lot when it was removed. I'll be over at Hurricane Harbor next week so I'll have to check, but last time I was there they hadn't expanded.

 

The picture does appear to be slightly dated though---Full Throttle has no visible construction

Yeah, I noticed that. I figured it had to be within the last year or so though. I could be wrong. I'll just have to check it out when I get out to Hurricane Harbor.

Maybe that's where the new for 2014 ride will go: Launch to Breakrun: The ride. It just launches you and then you hit the brakes. It's short, but man what a launch!

Isnt that called Formula Rossa?

Dont forget the turns!!!

That's totally the new ride, all five seconds of speed & breaks.

 

Do you mean it "breaks" after "five seconds of speed"?

 

I think the word you wanted was "brakes."

Well knowing the mountain, it might actually break apart

In case anyone was interested in how testing is going, here's a video that shows testing rom yesterday from just about every angle. It looks a but faster now than it was in the beginning.

 

The first two shots look slower than previous test runs!! I REALLY HOPE this isn't full speed.

Just got back from the park and MAN was it dead. By about 3, X2 only had a station wait. Longest wait I saw was about 30 minutes for Tatsu. And that is strange.. Because the parking lot was 100% full. There must've been a lot of people at Hurricane Harbor... Riddler and Scream were running 1 train.

 

Also, I saw 1 test run while on the X2 lift, but that is all I saw. Looks to be about the same speed as the videos.

Found this nice video with a lot of runs from different points of view. Interesting enough, there were a few comments mentioning the way soft/hard wheels affect speed. It looks like now everyone is an expert on types of wheels just because Cedar point released that video where they were mentioned.

^^I love how the hard/soft wheels has become a huge thing people turn to now when a coaster looks slow in testing. Like how do you even know it has soft wheels unless your an engineer on this? I find it quite hysterical!

This video is great! Thanks for sharing. At about 1:09 in the video, when the train is coming over the loop it looks to be going pretty fast. At least a lot faster than other videos, so hopefully that is a sign of the future. We'll actually get some airtime over the top!

looks like the launch into the loop at the start could be prone to rollbacks maybe, but I'm liking the concept of this coaster now, looks great, the track over the loop look like it could give great airtime.

Do we know if there will be any effects in the tunnel when it first goes into it to simulate its going into a backwards launch??I'm thinking a scenario like flashing red lights,Warning lights,Malfunction noises etc to really build up some drama and make it exciting???

^There will be effects, but we don't know what. They will be a surprise at opening.

 

Spoiler alert: A dubstep song with someone screaming YOLO and a projection of a dinosaur skateboarding over a building.

I wouldn't mind the dinosaur.

This is such an amazing idea, there is no way it will actually be anything this good.
