God it must be so awful to go through life being that pessimistic.

 

 

What a nightmare.

 

 

How long does it take before it stops being pessimism and starts being reality? I have 26 years of hands-on experience with SFMM. No matter what it used to be, or what we hope it will become one day, SFMM will be what it is and it will do what it does. TC won't be any different just because it's TC. It's not pessimism to expect Twisted Colossus to not look like it does in that CG concept art video. This is from the same park that showed YOLO with one train in the loop and another train sailing over at the same time. These videos are meant to sell Gold Passes. They are not meant to display with 100% perfect accuracy what the ride will do, look like, or how it will be operated.

 

It isn't pessimism to disbelieve the concept art video and instead envision a reality where the trains don't go up together, high-five together, soar around each other, as normal operations. Sure it'll happen some of the time, just like Colossus used to race some of the time, but that won't be how it will normally run. The larger point I was trying to make was that even though this is true, it really doesn't matter because it won't make Twisted Colossus any less fun to ride. TC will still be an amazing fun ride.

Lets switch gears here! Is anyone here excited for WCB this weekend? I know everyone is excited for Knotts, but how about SFMM? Anyone? Its funny to see how different the WCB's are since I went in 2009, 2010 when everyone was going to SFMM and hardly anyone made it to Knotts. Now its totally the opposite.

I'll be there at both parks/days! I've attended the SFMM day of WCB every year since 2010, and this will be my 2nd year attending Knott's (first time was last year). While I appreciate the fact that SFMM still does WCB and I'm looking forward to it, it is sad that there's nowhere near as much offered now as there was in the past (examples- no backstage tours, formal Q&A session, etc), whereas Knott's has been stepping up their offerings. So that probably explains why it's shifted. The reason why I haven't been to the Knott's day of WCB as much as SFMM is because in past years I haven't been able to stay for Sunday due to school. But I enjoy both parks (have season passes at both!), and I'm looking forward to this weekend!

 

I'm especially excited for ERT on Full Throttle and X2! Although I'm not counting on it, I'm hoping that maybe more details will be revealed about Twisted Colossus during lunch since there will be some Q&A. Obviously we're aware of the layout thanks to the video, but maybe we can get questions answered such as how long this was in development, and get the debate settled as to how loading will work (some think it'll be dual station loading like Tatsu, others think it'll be one station, the question of how many trains it'll have when it opens, etc).

The point is that myself and others here who perhaps aren't, shall we say, at the height of optimism when it comes to considering how TC will be operated, might know a little bit about what we are talking about.

 

But I'll say it again because it's worth saying again - it doesn't matter that likely only 2 trains will be run! TC will still be an AMAZING ride that will be much better than what was there before! That's ultimately what matters, right?

 

If people are having a great time, who gives a flying $@ if the two trains are not going up the lift hill together or flying over each other in perfect sync?

On a more speculative note, when the video does show 3 trains simultaneously (2 on course and 1 on brake run), two of the three are red, and the other purple.

Thoughts, if this ends up being the final color scheme and number of trains?

 

I wouldn't mind seeing a red, a purple, and a black if we're only getting 3.

Apocalypse actually has a similar airtime hill right after the drop, it just curves a bit to the right first.

 

i don't even call what's off the lift hill a drop on apocalypse. similar to outlaw run, pre drop? raging bull? great ejector drops.

 

maybe that little hill off the first drop is what he's talking about. that's hard to tell. it would be nice if it gives some pop, but i'm not anticipating it to be anything significant.

I meant the small airtime hill that happens under the exit walkway before the first turnaround.

 

oh yeah, that's small.

 

i think i need to re adjust my definition of airtime when i read stuff. lol

 

kinda like the ntag video where the guy says 40 something moments and i'm more with robb when he counts like 11 or so.

Is there any other ride that drops straight into an airtime hill the way TC does? Id like to see if people enjoy that.

 

call me dumb, but what part are you talking about?

 

The hill following the first drop.

 

 

yeah, i'm thinking after watching again it's going to have a decent pop there.

It looks really stretched out. I'm thinking Goliath-esque floater there.

 

 

The hills leading into and out of the high five, green's double down, blue's hill under green's top gun stall, both double ups into the second turn around, and the reverse banked blue hill leading into the green lift are going to be insane though.
