Park President Jeffrey Siebert has been sharing some wonderful pictures online! (I did mention to him I was going to post them here at TPR)  

^ I think it's a sign Hell has frozen over, and maybe the GOP Senators will vote to convict

Now, Bill. . you have to search for the clinical term:  "Blueprints shaped like penis"

Wow! Looks like you get plenty of opportunities to ride! I got real jealous seeing the pictures posted on the park facebook page because I still have to wait a week to ride at the travel channel shoot! Wednesday is my last of 3 AP exams, and then my reward is some rides on the EPIC Iron Rattler! It's going to be worth the 2 1/2 hour drive!

Iron Rattler was INSANE!!! Oh my God, it was incredible. The drop was incredibly steep (I've never been vertical or past, so 81 degrees was pretty awesome), and the Zero G roll was awesome. Sitting in the back, you really get pulled out of your seat on the first drop. I only got to ride three time because of some camera issues in the beginning and then some photo shots of models later, but those three times were incredible. It was really smooth and the seats were REALLY comfortable. The line in the station has been separated into three lines: 1 for back row, 1 for front row, and one really big section for all of the middle seats. It was really incredible. Anyone going on the TPR trip this summer is going to have a blast!!!

RMC and SFFT, you guys truly deserve all this praise. Who would have guessed a year ago that the original Rattler, crippled by time, would be brought to glory once again and improved considerably?

Having ridden NTAG and reading about iRAT after passing by watching construction almost everyday, I can't wait for this to open. It makes me happy about the 3 line choices and there won't be assigned seating.

Even though I wish Iron Rattler was longer, the aritime, the first drop, the overbank turns, and the Cave, made the coaster ultimately the best I have ever ridden!

 

Ride count:

2x Iron Rattler

4x Scream (back to back as the park needed riders to ride either SKC, SkyScreamer, and or Scream for helicopter shoot with Iron Rattler)

12x Iron Rattler (back to back)

 

Here is a picture Jeff had posted on Fiesta Texas Facebook page, which I was included in! (I'm in the gray in the middle of the train)

I got to ride 18 times, and boy, it hauled through the track from start to finish. The forces on the ride are forceful and intense with a good amount of negative G's and Lateral G and I'm happy to say that SFFT has a real winner.

 

The drop was awesome, especially with that quick twist from the start of the drop, it creates a nice amount of unexpected lateral G's along with weightlessness as it descend down the quarry wall. As awkward the zero G barrel roll looks, it was surprisingly awesome as you can literally feel you butt come off the seat in the process, and it beats any other Zero G roll out there(Sorry B&M). On top of the quarry wall where the old helix use to be at, you haul major a$$ through the airtime hills and overbanks, and that free fall is EPIC as you get about 3 good seconds of airtime. The tunnel is tight and will be featuring fog through it. As you exit the tunnels, you literally shoot out of there with a lot of speed, and into the brake run, you get a last taste of airtime with a nice amount of lateral's along with it.

 

Thank God for RMC!

So as far as the entrance and queue area, is that all still being worked on or is it all finished up???

They are still working on it. The entrance still needs to add the head and the tail to the ride sign, but by the looks of it, they are extending the queue. The old narrow ramp still remains there.

Next Wednesday will not come soon enough, bummed I couldn't get the 8th off to join you guys out there yesterday. All the elements sound incredible, having been on NTAG I simply cannot wait for Iron Rattler media event on the 15th

yay! I was in that picture!

But I was in the background so it's hard to see.

 

Nobody's seemed to mention the double-up after the first drop and before the first overbank.

How does that hold up?

AIR! AIR! AIR!

You Haul through the double up. You get a good amount of airtime leveling out and you go through the overbank like butter. And the over bank after the double up, you get this weird sensation of sliding of the cliff.

Hi, I was just wondering, when and how are we supposed to return the release form for the travel channel and media day appearences? Also, how long before the start time of the event should we be at the park? I hope to see a lot of you guys at the park on those two days!

You would turn them in as you enter the park and come in like 15-30 early, like that they can process you in and stuff.

Just as he mentioned!

 

Any idea on when this will air or what show it will be on, on the Travel Channel?

 

All I know is the commercial should come during the 2?th of May. So lets keep a look out! =p
