The reason the ride is trimmed so much is because the trains are so much heavier now than what the track was designed for.

Lighter Train = less need for all of the trims = better ride.

Honestly, I would have MUCH rather them spent the $$ on Revolution than on Superman. But they couldn't have sold it as a "new ride experience".

Superman test shot !!!

Left side, and that sucker was screaming loud just like old times. I *think* it hit the red. Appeared empty / if there were water dummies, I didn't see them.

Hoping for another shot.

Cool - again! Definitely hit the red 3-4 frames from the top. Got the cell phone pic. Any tips on how to upload from the park?

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

^That had to do with the riders arm clearance I believe so they could test just to see how the new trains are.
^^Great to hear. =)
