Six Flags Magic Mountain Terminator Salvation: The Ride


Recommended Posts

The only GCI coaster that I've ever ridden is Gwazi which i believe uses the common 4 seat set up cars, but I'm anxious to try these retro Millennium Flyer cars. I must say the openness of the cars look exhilarating and could easily make me overlook my minor nit-pick. I can't wait for this coaster.

My only experience with both Millennium Flyers and GCII is ROAR! up at SFDK. It ran great in 1999 when it opened, and I haven't heard anything bad about it, so I assume it's still a decent ride.

I hope it is....... Seems like this company prides themselves on not the record breaking layouts but wild speedy layouts. I think that's what the appeal is to me that's peaking my interest in this coaster.

Great looking pics, Robb, although I have to say I wouldnt know a daedman turnaround if it jumped up and bit me in the face. Having never ridden Psyclone, I dont have a reference for what everyone is saying; is it worse than the Cyclone at SFNE, which rides like the short bus on crack?

 

Anyway, Termie is looking great.

If that happened, you'd be a dead man!

 

After looking at the overall ride enough times, I think what I'm going to like best is how low much of it is low to the ground, the many banked curves, and some pops of air. Definitely something different for SFMM.

I was up at SFDK last summer, it was still running quite well. GCI's seem to hold up extraordinarily well for the most part. I'm sure there's an exception somewhere, but I guarantee it's still better than Psyclone was

Wow, that made my day. I could care less about the coaster but I got to see DOMO! yay! and wow I paid 12$ for a little mini domo and its 34$ for the one shown on this update

who would have known it would be cheaper in california?

I want to go to magic mountain so bad.

Is it worth it?

Let me know.

 

Well, as someone who very much enjoys pretty much all amusement parks, I would say yes.

 

Is it one of the best parks out there? Personally, i would say no. But I'm sure there are plenty of folks who would disagree. As they say, "That's why they make chocolate and vanilla."

As of New Years eve when I last rode it, it was still as great as ever!

 

 

 

On a side note, Millennium Flyers really make a difference. Back on the east coast trip when I rode SFA's Roar, which uses PTC trains, the difference could really be noticed. Their Roar was terribly rough. You could feel the trains shuffling side to side along the track, and the pacing was downright bad. Ten years of PTCs on a GCI track have made the ride much worse than it should be. The same can be said for Hershey's Wildcat. Although Wildcat's PTC trains were sent to Lake Compounce to be used on Boulder Dash, the track damage could still be felt under the new Millennium Flyers.

So are the Trains on Gwazi those PTC Trains you speak of??? Gwazi was sheer fun although a little rough but that's what I thought the appeal of Wooden coasters over the Steel ones was - The rough out of control feel. However I do know there is a difference between fun, tolerable roughness over the un-necessarily rough like psyclone was and how horrible the Great American Scream Machine in Georgia is now.

 

If the GCI Trains make that much a difference in the tracking, then I'm gonna absolutely love Terminator because my forte is fast pacing and no use of the dreadful Mid-course Braking which often times interrupts the fun on some coasters.......

 

The Mountain is once again getting back to greatness it seems......

^ It would have been funny if your bag-o-crap actually had some sliced bread inside!

 

I was able to attend Media Day for X2, so I'm hoping to be there for Terminator. Once it opens, I expect long lines for a long time.
