The RMC T-Rex Giga Coaster that flies over the parking toll booths will not use nets to protect cars driving under, but, will instead use a tunnel. I'm not sure if the coaster of the cars will use the tunnel. I wasn't paying close enough attention to clarify.

Anyone have any pics or videos of Tatsu's new light up wheels?

 

Here's a video on Reddit...

You're a brave man going on that subreddit. I use reddit a ton but the coaster and theme park subs are awful.

Nice rundown of the event, John! That means a USA Trip report is due right

 

The choice to add the comfort collars to avoid seat belts doesn't make sense. The comfort collars actually are a seat belt that you buckle once you pull them down Unless Racers are getting a different version that don't suck. I'd much rather have a regular seat belt that doesn't take away my upper body freedom.

I can't remember that far back anymore. LOL

 

yeah, those comfort collars were way awkward to get on on tempesto.

SFMM is making a huge mistake by getting the comfort collars for WCR.

 

I advise Neil and co. to drive down to SWSD to compare the load/unload time to their own Full Thottle before it's too late. The collars are WAY slower than the seat belts and they add another level of discomfort to the already terrible Premier lapbar/seat design.

My biggest gripe with the "comfort" collars is how far away they sit from the body for most people. Not only are they awkward and cumbersome to get into and out of (especially since Premier's trains are already very crammed), but they sit right at ear/temple height. Yes, they are soft, so it's not like they induce serious head banging or anything, but I would almost rather they sit close and tight against my body. Of course this will vary with different body types, but that is what I would personally prefer.

 

But despite my issue with the "comfort" collars, I do appreciate the fact that SFMM is taking an initiative to maximize capacity and ensure fast(er) operations so WCR can always race without prolonged pit stops. It is what it is and I'm still really looking forward to riding next year.

great TR from WCB a couple of pages back.

 

what did Andy think of MM? I've never been either, and it's something I plan to do in the future.

 

If WCB happens again next year, I'm gonna attend for sure!

Has anyone heard anything about what's going on with the rewards program yet? I've been trying to sign up for a week and a half now and it still seems to be down.

 

I've tried several times today since I was at the park with no success. It keeps coming up with an error. I want to start getting my points.

That's odd. I successfully signed up at the beginning of September for the rewards program. And after seeing your post, I decided to check my account. It looks like they reset everything and I'm no longer registered. I also get the error message when trying to re-sign up.

Kind of sucks since I'm pretty sure fright fest maze passes were supposed to be one of the rewards.. I'm gonna head to the park for a few hours today. I'll see if anyone at membership headquarters or guest relations knows what's going on

Well, if they can disbatch a train every 45 seconds to keep the flow going, even a long line should move fairly quickly

 

i'm not sure any coaster at magic mountain dispatches in that time.

 

I totally get why that seems silly, but honestly, I feel like if any coaster in the park is going to dispatch in that time, West Coast Racers will be it. It's much easier and faster to check 12 people's restraints than say 24, 28, or 32. And I know the comfort collars will slow that down a little, but not having seatbelts and being able to immediately pull down the restraint does make a difference. This on top of the new loose article method they plan on implementing for this ride, I can totally see 45 second dispatches.

 

Superman at SFDK pumped out trains every 30-45 seconds and the line moved very well.
