February 21st Update!

 

Mr. Six is BACK!!! That's right! Today's update starts with something more important than Terminator...the return of the old dancing guy and I have to say I'm glad to have him back!

 

Anyway, on to some Terminator photos! It's a Saturday and these guys never get a day off...it's because they are ROBOTS! Duh!

 

You wanted sexy curves? You got 'em!

 

The bottom of the structure sure looks dense! I guess it needs to be with the California earthquakes.

 

These two sections keep looking better and better.

 

More Terminators hard at work.

 

You can easily spot the Terminators since they all wear bright orange vests!

 

See!

 

Here you can see the new bridge that will be the rides entrance is starting to get worked on.

 

And another look at the future bridge.

 

And OMG! Another look at the future bridge!

 

Yeah, I know we've seen this before, but doesn't it look better closer up?

 

We see you Mr. First Drop getting installed!

 

Here's a good overview of the progress this week.

 

Mud...why did it have to be mud?

 

I think by West Coast Bash the ride will almost be done!

 

This Terminator update, along with the Bryan and Adam Show is brought to you by delicious, refreshing, tasty, and fizzy Coca-Cola.

 

OMG! SIGNATURE SHOT!!!

 

You can see a lot more of the first drop has gone up since last week.

 

Popsicle Sticky Sticks.

 

Hello Goliath Sign!

 

Don't try to hide! We see you behind Deja Vu!

 

The new entrance area from the Sky Tower.

 

Across from the Deja Vu entrance is the new Johnny Rockets Snakes & Pies! Sorry, I mean Shakes and Fries.

 

Thrill Shot was running today!

 

Look! Dueling Arrows!

 

Rapids is still down for the count. Looks like a lot of work is being done.

 

The boats wait patiently to go back home.

 

TPR Member Sighting! Crazy4Coasters and Itnotfair. And no, they aren't the cute couple as they look like here, they just both happened to be at the park at the same time!

 

Jeff was also here doing his "I look older than dirt" impression.

 

We also got a sneak peek inside the new Cold Stone at the front of the park.

 

This location will have mix-ins just like all the others!

 

Ooooh....yummy!

 

"I will take Butterfingers and Reese's please!"

 

Wow! Her and I have something in common. Maybe I should get her number! (BTW, Hi Dino!)

 

Don't forget to get your 2009 Play Pass!

 

And if you are local to Six Flags Magic Mountain and want to check out working at the park, stop by the 2009 Job Fair!

 

And finally, we leave this update with another TPR Caption Contest! The best 10 captions posted will get a TPR Bag-o-Crap! Email your captions to DAN! mrt0ad13@aol.com

 

See you next week!

Hopefully you guys will get something a lot better and more comfier than Psyclone.

 

They could have accomplished that goal by simply lining up a few old cement trucks, then tossing in 20 people at time and spinning the mixing drum.

Holy crap that was seriously one of the best MM trips I've ever had. Laurice and I got on all twelve open coasters (the loading teams were all on point today), got to check out the sky tower for the first time, and I got to meet three famous TPR personalities, all three of whom were very gracious, and one of whom had a boob-related t-shirt. What else could I ask for? Oh yeah, Terminator is looking GCI-licious!

 

On a side note, I've been pretty hard on SFMM for the condition of their bathrooms in recent history, and I must say they have really stepped up in that department. Like I said, just an awesome day overall.

 

Pics to come later. Of coasters, not bathrooms.

Haha you stole my Terminator Pictures! JK they were much better than the crap I took, I was also there today and couldnt get any good pictures of the drop cause deja vu blocked it from almost everywhere. It may sound stalkerish, but did you also spot jahan today?

 

Here's what I took:

What's that through the trees?

Weird metal things where track will be

What the Terminators leave behind during lunch

Turnaround, I forgot why I took this

Future railing

Some of the first drop, Deja Vu blocked pretty much any view I could get of it

According to Six Flags logic, this is the least fun place in the park

Blurry bent placement due to me taking the pictures with a camcorder

Just a tad bit clearer

Here you can clearly see the first drop

The rest of Terminator's pretty layout, plus stacks of wood on that last turn

There we go, a clear wood placement picture!

I have a gut feeling that this is gonna one of those holy S*** moments

That piece of wood has found its home!

The obligatory sexy new paint job picture

Got wood?

Forklift Porn

I thought I'd be cool getting the first johnny rocket's pictures, but Robb beat me to it

2nd person to get the picture is just as good as the first right?

Nail Gun operator porn

Hooray for the hole in the wall!

Work work work!

I like this picture

 

That's all for my first ptr, hoped you enjoyed it[/img]

Great update.

 

Dose Mr. Six talk?

 

I wish he did but he was a mute all day. I think the SF employee walking next to him was his own talkbox. And after spending time with Robb and Jeff busting each others chops I knew it was going to be a good day. It was good meeting you Ben (itnotfair) and also seeing our good dear friend Mr. Six (Mike) again. Can't wait for the BASH and for Terminator, now I must stop writing before I drown in my own drool!

Haha! great update, hurray mr. six & 'popsicle stick' coasters!

I'm wondering about the same thing as STR8FXXXINEDGE;

Is that the real mr. six or just a hired entertainer to walk around the park? It will be such a sad day when the old dancing man finally passes away.

One thing we can be thankful for is that Six Flags never had that Asian guy running through the parks yelling "MORE FLAGS! MORE FUN!" That would have been annoying. But great to see Mr. Six back and in the parks (I don't think he was in the parks back when he first appeared).

 

Great to see Terminator progressing. I look forward to the backstage tour of that area at WCB in a month.
