Great job on the campout Robb & Elissa. That would have been a pretty boring campout had it not been for all the hardwork you guys did. I liked some of the comments I over heard "Wow, I wish out group did something like that" and "How much did this cost everybody?" and I got to reply "Nothing". I think you will have a few new members from that campout. You guys rocked.

Tatsu was great. Everybody could pretty much ride as much as they wanted once the media was done. I thought the restaints were very comfortable. Hard to say were you got the best ride. I liked the front because of the view but the back had a lot more force. I didn't think there was any real bad seats. The pretzel loop really drills you into your seat. I noticed that the coaster was running a lot faster late in the day. It was breaking pretty hard in that block right before you make the turn towards the station late in the day. I didn't notice much breaking at all in the morning.

The rest of the park was pretty empty so most of the coasters were walk ons. I don't know what the line for X was like because we rode it when it opened. I finally got my DeJa Vu credit too. I guess it helps to have Shapero in the park..

It was a great day

Wow that was an awesome campout. Even though I came with websitefullofdouchebags it was nice of you not to kick us away from Family Guy. Me and my friend got on the first train that morning some how and then some how managed the second row on the first train of X and also by chance happened to be on the first media break down upon the chainlift. Also to just walk onto the front of riddlers multiple times and walkon to Deja was pretty nice too. I'm sure all of you who were watching the projector at night saw me and my friend because we were the ones that dragged our mats over and layed there practically all night. Thanks so much for the great night. I just thought I should come around and hang out at "the light side" as Robb would put it.

Do you know where your wife is?

Why am I not surprised to see Don trying to kill himself on the skateboard-looking things??? :roll:

Great update btw. Tatsu looks like an amazing coaster!

This 16 year old puts you to shame

OMG it looks like you guys had so much fun! I'm so overly jealous of you. Well, I was originally supposed to go to SFMM tomorrow to officially ride Tatsu, but I have no ride and no one wants to go with me. This week has really sucked, see my post on the Rant Thread.

P.S. - I was wondering if Freefall and Sky Tower were open yet or not. Thanks.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Hey great pics and sounds like you had an awesome time. I wish I was there.

Glad you saw Beer again. Elissa, I remember him from when we we on Canyon Blaster... unless SFMM has 2 ride ops named Beer.

Go to magic mountain website, click on the sign on the riight under the Tatsu flash animation, it'll open up a new window with interviews, pictures, and raw footage from media day. Included in one video is raw POV video... :b :br :airtime: :airtimer:

I know more about donkeys than women!

Something I noticed below gave me a chuckle...!
