^^You got me and my family as well in the RRE video. We're in the second train shown. My brother is in car 4, I'm behind him, my sister is behind me, and my dad is behind her. I guess you were among the many TPR members who thought to ride right after lunch.

 

Good videos in general. That Green Lantern one really shows how tame the ride is, as half of the cars didn't even get a single complete flip.

West Coast Bash Part One!

 

Without further ado I present to you all the Magic Mountain Day fo West Coast Bash! Both days were extremely awesome and I had a great time. Huge thanks to Robb and the Parks for making this event happen!

A shot of the sun rising as we drive towards Magic Mountain. It's very early, but it's worth every second!

Sun's up. And so are my spirits!

X2 is an extremely photogenic ride. And being a coaster nerd with a nice camera I did what any coaster nerd with a nice camera would do and I took several millions pictures.

Goliath off in the distance. It was giving some pretty decent rides during ERT.

Superman: Escape from Krypton will not be operating today due to a shift in the staircase. :p

More X2 shots. I'm sure you prefer X2 shots to X shots.

I honestly liked the Pink-n-Yellow scheme, but the new colors do complement on another in a much nicer manner.

So when are we getting X3? Xtreme to the cube power?

I like this shot except for the lamp. Lamps ruin 90% of my X2 photos

I approve of X2! I do not however approve of the camera skills possessed by the taker of this photograph.

But enough about X2. Now that the parking lot opened, we could proceed to the entrance to begin.

Older Arrow love! After seeing this in Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 it became my favorite coaster as a child I couldn't wait to ride it. Then I rode it. Several Advil later I swore I would never ride it again.

Viper does have a nice location and nice looking layout. However it rides like being inside a trashcan being thrown down a rocky cliffside into water filled with ravenous dinocrocs.

2121072860_DSCN1932(Copy).JPG.67cc05b45fbdbede30d14787b95b0bd1.JPG

Because no one has this picture. Seriously. I bet no one has this photograph.

Who's ready for ERT?

Heading into the park. First stop: Goliath! It ran pretty well. Smooth as glass per usual rides.

762893626_DSCN1940(Copy).JPG.a99a9e1acf72210dea63471b68c20667.JPG

Is it just me, or does this sign match the ride in the background more than the ride in the foreground?

922888703_DSCN1941(Copy).JPG.f98e9f47095e75b110c80b29a485b4d0.JPG

Ah Green Lantern. You look so nice but ride not so much.

Riddle me this: What's Large, Green, Open of ERT, and has bad capacity? Green Lantern of Course!

758398856_DSCN1954(Copy).JPG.eb1dc5b19a6da00e8c5f53fcd1a95a74.JPG

In all seriousness I did like Green lantern. I have to applaud Six Flags on the theming as it was definitely one of their better jobs. However, the ride experience just didn't deliver what I was hoping, and after getting serious whiplash-to-ribcracking-vertical stop and being stuck on it for around 40 minutes later in the day, I pretty much gave up on it.

One of the many vict- erm passangers who were standed on the ride for an extended period of time.

I did have a few good rides on it.

Wait? Why am I here and not on that completely empty Batman train?

Somewhere in Cyberspace, there is an extremely creepy other photo of this.

Green lantern now has additional covering over the Spiral design...

SO um yeah, that's Green Lantern.

143371220_DSCN1991(Copy).JPG.037a43ae13a5b0482a6d29f0ee1cc144.JPG

Will this ride live long enough to see itself become a villan?

Before I get my lazy bum of a self to post the other WCB photos, I have a Manta update!

 

Here's a full in-depth look at the attraction.

 

I apologize in advance as some of the footage is not up to my usual par...

 

Anyway, enjoy!
