They took us into the roundhouse. Gave us a history lesson. And let us take as many pictures as we could!

We even got to walk part of the track where guests were normally not allowed.

Tom explained how the Steam engines worked, what daily maintenance needs to be done and what the Galloping Goose is.

The Galloping Goose was built during the great depression as a cost effective way to tranport mail.

Yesterday was so much fun, as usual! I, unfortunately, had to work until after 2:30 a.m. every night this week, so I was just flat out too exhausted to make it to night time ERT (which, yes, I'm kicking myself for, but all the coffee in the park couldn't remedy it), but the morning and rest of the day was AWESOME! Thanks, everybody, for making this great.

 

My one big regret (other than above) - as usual - I still haven't made good friends with anybody on here to meet up with at these events. I need to change that!

Yesterday at SFMM was my first TPR event ever, and my friends and I were very impressed! We had a great time, and I'm wishing I could have gone to the Knott's portion today, too. Hopefully if it's two parks next year, I'll be able to make it for both days. Thanks to Robb and everyone at SFMM that put on such a great event yesterday, and I'll definitely make sure to attend WCB 2011 next year, too!

Glad you guys are having fun over at West Coast Bash, I wish I could be there to be a part of all the fun! Maybe a Midwest Bash?

Random question, but isn't a train from Cedar Point at Knott's getting worked on?

All hail Vekoma Boomerang!

I'd rather not.

Awesome updates!!! Yesterday was so fun and it looks like Knott's is a hit so far. Can't wait to see more.

 

Question, is it possible to get the audio from Terminator from last night? It was so awesome!!!

 

Agreed. Just in case it does not get posted for those non participants in the station there was a muffled voice saying "Take the Tunnel, Take the tunnel." The lift hill was (if I heard correctly) a voice that sounded like invader zim saying things like "Why should you be able to ride with no preshow" and "I demand you see the preshow!" Then on the ride it kept yelling "Take the Tunnel" and on the final break run, the audio went something like "We took the tunnel, we took the tunnel, we took the tunnel." It was overall awesome as it was completely customized and very TPR approved. Easily the best day I have ever had at any park. Also, I am kind of dissapointed cause I saw tons of people but I am shy, so a very late hey to the Bebes, Fitch Coaster, Doug and Shannon Barnes, all the mods and Jeff Johnson, and J man aka the Hoodie Wizard. Also we saw Jahan, so I am not sure what was said cause there were people talking to him on the tour, but that was cool. We said hey to Robb during night time ERT, but next year I will actually say hi!

Had a great time at the Mountain yesterday at WCB. I come across the country from Florida for this. Thank Rob and staff !

 

Hey any news on Xcelerator while at Knotts today? I see the Knott's website now has posted Xcelerator is down through April 30 . I opted to return to the Mountain for more today Sunday .

 

Just a wonderful time with all the extras at the Mountain yesterday. Thanks all...

WCB 2010 was so much fun! From night ERT surprises and X2 tour at SFMM to the Haunt presentation and "short" Calico Mine tour at Knott's; everything exceeded my already-high expectations! Colossus racing and the remixed Terminator audio was definitely the highlight of the weekend, for Jaclyn and I!

 

I'd just like to give a HUGE thank you to Robb and everyone else involved for putting on such a fantastic event. I arrived at home from Knott's about an hour ago, and my mind is still blown from how great everything was. I've always wanted to go to WCB, and now that I've had the chance to experience it for myself... wow. It was well worth every penny. So thanks, once again for everything. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

PS - I'm counting on that backstage Haunt event at Knott's that was discussed at the presentation to happen! That would be AMAZING.

FIXED! ^ I totally agree, yesterday was the best day I have ever had at a park, and I got the go ahead from my mom to do both parks next year, as I am assuming that will still be the case, so thats awesome. I had an absolutely amazing time yesterday, and it is so weird to think that 24 hours ago I was either getting off of Tatsu or running to/riding X2 for final night rides.

 

Anyway, Robb, Chris and all the Magic Mountain staff, you guys are all awesome. Shout out to our tour guide on the Goliath backstage tour, sorry, I dont remember your name, but we were the 1:55 group. It was awesome that we got to take pictures in front of the infamous "helix of death" and those will end up on facebook within the next few days. Thanks to everyone involved!!!

I had an AMAZING time this weekend! I didn't get to talk with too many of you that were there, but it was great to see everyone! I am already looking forward to next years WCB!

 

I really need to get some sleep. I've had maybe 4 or 5 hours of sleep over the entire weekend. I'm so tired, but it was so worth it!!!
