That's the fire effect?


That was literally my thought when I saw the photo!!! :lmao: :lmao:

I don’t get all the hype over the fire effect. You can get basically the same effect from any generic firework stand across the country from about the middle of June through July 4th.

Man, people bellyache about anything. The fire effect is larger in live action. Look at the YouTube video that just came out. I'm too lazy right now to link it.

Either way, I'm sure that the emphasis wasn't on a volcano blast. Probably were more concerned about the paint and trains. Do you think?? :|

^^this... it's the timing. I saw the video. It is bigger. Also, I agree. Either way, small fire > no fire.

Not surprised the floorless trains are an upgrade. It is weird the back rows are the smoothest spots though.

I just got the invite for Firebird at Six Flags America on the morning of May 16. Do we have anyone that is somewhat local to the area that would want to go to it representing TPR? You must be willing to shoot photos & video of the ride, post a trip report to the forum, and be on-camera with much enthusiasm for a rider-cam! If you're interested, please email: robbalvey@themeparkreview.com

I just saw the videos of Firebird. It looks like a great improvement to the ride and the park overall. The colors really pop, the ride looks zippier with the floorless trains, and the area around the ride looks a lot better. I wasn't too much of a fan of the Apocalypse theme, but I love the cleaner look of the area around Firebird. I can't wait to try it out! Good job Six Flags!

I could do it- I'm in the area and at the park often, but honestly I'm so annoyed at Six Flags' policy so far, with members allowed to ride and non-members, including upper-tier season passholders, left to watch from the sidelines until the 17th, that I don't want to do anything to promote this ride. I wish you luck finding someone.
