How is the noise level? Can you still hear it all over the park?

Having a username like "COASTAH FREAK" is like having a girl's name tattooed on your chest. You hate looking at it every day, but it's there for good.

I think the testing won't be with full speed at the beginning... So maaaybe it's getting higher ;)
SFMM will stay one of my favourite parks in the world ;)

Hopes Magic Mountain gets a used Roller Skater that 36" kids can ride.

Trying to look smart on the TPR forums since 2008.

Yes, I was right...

See. Same height with or without riders. You must also take account that the new cars are definitely much lighter and look more aerodynamic (judging from ToT2)

No, you're not. You're actually very wrong. Please LISTEN to some of us before trying to brag about something you don't have a clue about. That picture you posted was taken in 1998, when they used to launch at full speed. The ride in the past 10 years has NOT been launching at full speed. The only time it would go that high is when the car was nearly empty.

We have no idea if they were launching the test runs at full speed or not today.

Your photo proves nothing, other than you really need to listen to the professionals in this business rather than speaking out of your arse.

Sorry. I guess me making a small interpretation is a little too much for this forum.

I really am sorry. :|

Someone who has been working in theme parks since he was 17 years old. Don't be a dick and then try to back pedal with an apology. That sh1t don't work on me. Just don't be a dick in the first place.

They could also be running Superman at full power with no intention of keeping it that way. We'll just have to wait and see.
