So TPR posted this video of Cyborg Spin. and given that it's the same ride coming to SFOT... I thought it'd be worth the share in this thread.

Also, after watching the video there's no way I will ever be riding one of these. The video itself makes me nauseous. :cry:

I wonder if Harley will have the LED light package like Cyborg Spin? From the photos posted of Harley, I didn't see any kind of light package on it.

I think it will have a lighting package...

But I could be wrong. Those might not be lights...

Just looked at the web site for SFOT and they said NEw Texas Giant is closed? Is this the case. Looking at a possible trip in late June, but may change to Six Flags Over Geogria as it seems a lot of rides are down at SFOT. To me Joker makes sense because of how close it is to the new ride, but curious on what is up with New Texas Giant or if the website is just plain wrong.

Being listed as temporarily closed could only mean a couple of days though. I know SFOG has posted that in the past and the ride has only been down for like three or four days.

I was at the park on Saturday- both NTAG and Joker were operating normally. In fact, even Caddo River Barge was operating...

Yes, Harley will have the same lighting package as Cyborg.

Bummer about New Texas Giant. We have a first-ever trip planned next week and probably won't have a chance to go back for a long time. Hopefully they get it open soon.

As for Joker, the app says that it's open and it's been posting wait times all week. That's odd.

I'm pretty sure whatever closure was being reported was just bad timing on someone's part. Temporary stuff.

Hope you enjoy your time there! Hopefully ShockWave isn't running the way it was during the VR deal - every drop felt hella neutered except the first one

Thanks!

Any advice for this park by the way? I'm sort of planning on heading to New Texas Giant at rope drop because (while it may not be the best plan of attack), it's really the reason we're there and if we miss anything else the world won't end. What other rides should we try to hit early? La Vibora, Pandemonium and Joker I assume?
