West Coast Racers apparently ran a test launch on the yellow side last night. The train reached the first hill and then rolled back into the station.

I’m at the park right now. There are some guys working on the LSMs on the yellow launch, but I haven’t seen any test runs so far.

^Not sure if you’re trolling? It’s a decently long ride with 4 launches and basically two rides in one.

 

Not trolling at all, the povs looked short and only 25 sec

 

I have lots of "short" coasters that are amongst my favorites. So again, your point makes no sense.

I don't know why so many are excited to have west coast racers open, it's a 10 sec ride. Lol

 

There are plenty of short rides out there that are frequently in people’s “Top 10 lists.” IE: Outlaw Run (Roughly 33 seconds from leaving the lift to hitting the brake run.) Top Thrill Dragster (Roughly 17 seconds from Launch to hitting the brake run.) Kingda Ka (similar to TTD.) And those are just the first 3 that came to mind.... There’s plenty more out there.

 

Maybe it’s just me.... But I feel like you’re complaining just to complain... Without a valid complaint.

Magic Mountain really seems to care about Viper, with the recent major refurb, the wheels it seems like they really are trying to keep the last megalooper running. I applaud them, Vortex and GASM were my #1 and 2 coasters, because I can't lie I really love arrows and I worry about Viper, but it seems like it might just be around for another while!

West Coast Racers is testing this evening. MrAmusementMedia on Instagram posted a couple of videos of trains being launched on the yellow side. It looks like a crazy fun ride.

From the SFOG thread:

So I rode mindbender today and noticed one of New Revolution @ SFMM’s trains near the lift hill behind the Maintenance shed. Unfortunately I was not able to take a picture of it. But it was so interesting seeing them there

I had noticed Revolution running only one train over the past few weeks and had just assumed the 2nd train was being rehabbed. I wonder if Six Flags plans on using that train on Mindbender and keeping Revolution at permanent one-train ops? Permanent one-train ops isn't a typical practice for Magic Mountain, but Revolution rarely has a sizeable wait anymore and doesn't have much need for a second train outside of exceptionally crowded days - so who knows?
