lucky people out in the parking lot could take video if they want to and not be "terminated"

 

 

It was so ultra slow (lack of guest) that I dont believe even at 6:05 there might have been no guest in the parking lot. Cars only were parked today in the first lot that's how slow it was. Only buses parked in lot 2 but even by then they had all left.

I think the rumor is that there won't be a green train. I think they're 4 trains.

 

I really hope that is just that, a rumor.....the green train was going to be the best looking out of the 4, if they are going to omit one, it should've been the orange train, orange is already way overused in this park.

 

over used?

 

goliath is all orange, Tatsu is orange, Scream is orange track (blue supports right?) and then i'm sure theres orange soda somewhere. Yeah, you're right orange is a bit overused but GP and Six Flags don't care I think.

ourmountain_thrillpark said to me on instagram @gmdben_2002 we ran 2 circuits at 6PM. and before they ran the trains they had a meeting and said and anyone that had a camera would have been "TERMINATED" but the lucky people out in the parking lot could take video if they want to and not be "terminated"

 

I'm sorry, but that is such bull$#it... How come SFNE can take and post to the media a video of Wicked Cyclone's first test run [and it was pretty apparent by the applause after it was the FIRST], but there's some sort of super top secret PR blockade that makes SFMM or Twisted Colussus different? Seriously SFMM?.....

If they go with 3 trains, then they'll never duel since you know one will always be out for maintenance.

 

And the other one will be sitting on the side unused.

Maybe because they want to save the first viewable test for all the media people coming tomorrow? Especially if they were told they'd be given first opportunity to publish testing footage.

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.

I generally agree with you. At the same time, I'm not going to hold today's lack of a full video against them unless the tour thing happens tomorrow, several days go by, and we still don't see any solid footage (doubtful).

 

It's reasonable to to believe they wanted to run it once or twice before worrying about getting it all on camera.

At least we now know it's "Late May" ... which pretty much pinpoints a Memorial Day weekend opening. Hopefully they'll announce more info for those on the construction tour tomorrow. I wonder if they still plan to have a 4th train? And if they're really going to charge season pass holders for ERT...

I would think that they wouldn't want to race on the first few test runs to make sure that all the systems work without the chance of a collision between two carts occurring. This would also explain why they don't want any video shot, as Six Flags would want the first test run people see to have the carts racing to show off the full potential of TC.

Both trains did race. They sent one and then the other one and they raced. That was all they did. They checked to make sure everything is working properly. Also on that small video notice how the old track under the drop is painted white too. That's pretty cool. Its was super quiet and smooth too. Everyone is gonna love it. And yes 4th train is happening for sure. Not sure when it arrives tho.

Nice to see Twisted Colossus testing. I imagine they just ran it today to make sure that it can run for the media tomorrow and we'll probably see more then. At this point, provided that there aren't any major issues during testing I'd be surprised if we aren't riding Memorial Day weekend.

 

For anyone debating the existence of a fourth train, just don't. The park would not have constructed storage space for four trains if they only purchased three. The green train will likely show up at some point in the next couple weeks and they should have plenty of time to get the necessary test time with all four trains.

You have to give them some credit for using vine correctly---short video teases. Probably the best use of social media I've seen from the park yet. With the press tour tomorrow, I imagine that is when they will release more B-roll.
