I actually really like the trains without the covers. Regardless of how this ride turns out once it opens, there is no denying that these things are some of the most photogenic coasters out there, especially in the long, drawn out rolls. Just gorgeous.

Based on the Wingriders already in operation, I get the feeling that the photogenic quality of the ride type is the biggest selling point to begin with.

I know they haven't finished the theming on the train, but someone please tell me (because I don't feel like searching, sue me), are they going to still have all the theming on the ground for the train to have all those head/foot choppers? Because the ride loses at least half its appeal if they aren't going to go through with all the theming.

^^ Yes. I'm not sure where the idea that it wasn't going to be built came from, but as has been confirmed by the park so many times now, it will be built and construction has already started on them.

Also the park confirmed on Twitter that a testing video will be released tomorrow.

^Well that's good then. Lord knows SF has been cutting costs across the board the last couple years, at least they decided to keep what will probably be the best part about this ride intact.

Is it May 12th yet? I was just up in Waukegan today with no idea this was happening.

Can't wait!

Those covers are the only surface I can think of that could be used when it comes time to promote things like Karate Kid or Stride.

Well apparently we won't have to worry about that, at least for the time being. Looks like all sorts of Six Flags parks are taking off their ad wraps.
