Time to scream and shout and get your YOLO on!!!! Here it comes... another awesome YOLOcoaster update!!!

yolodumb.png

9.jpg
Here is where YOLOcoaster will do some kind of funky twisty, divey thing and then TAKE THE TUNNEL!!!

8.jpg
A quick look at dirt, faded Tatsu, and the location where you will soon be able to buy YOLOwings and YOLOfries! (Seriously, marketing people, use these names, we are giving them to you for free!)

7.jpg
A close-up of the dirt and bones sticking up out of the ground.

6.jpg
And over here we have.... dirt!

5.jpg
SURPRISE!!! Bet you didn't know that YOLOcoaster is actually going to merge into Goldrusher to become the worlds fastest and only launched mine train coaster!

4.jpg
"COME AT ME BRO!!!!" lol "YOLO!!!!!"
(Seriously, how can you not poke a little bit of fun at the park when they use sayings like YOLO in their promo videos and have banners like these!) =)

3.jpg
That's right... my pass is made of gold and I'm awesome!

2a.jpg
There was also no signage at the bus drop off/pick up on the park side. Just these temporary queues.

Not exactly sure how well they are working, but I feel like I saw a lot more people walking up to the park than before. Maybe this is a good thing? =)

28.jpg

27.jpg
In all seriousness, I've never met a Premier Rides coaster I didn't like, so I think this ride will end up being quite full of kick A$$. But for those of you who have recently asked us "Why all the YOLO" let me explain something....

26.jpg
HELLYEAHTOTHEMAX!!!!!

25.jpg
Bones and things...

24.jpg
This shot is kind of artsy...I think... or maybe it's fartsy?

23.jpg
HA! We tricked you!!!! YOLOcoaster isn't going to become YOLOrusher after all! It's actually going to have a HUGE loop and top hat!!!! I know, I know, sorry to disappoint you! =)

22.jpg
This is the view from the entrance of the log flume building.

21.jpg
Here's what the area approaching the old Log Jammer station looks like now.

20.jpg
OMG! Another angle!!! WHEEE!!!!!

2.jpg
The jury is still out, at least for me, as to how well these are working. They have these queues set up, and when they are full it takes a lot longer to load the buses since everyone enters through two doors, instead of 15+ rows.

The bus loops seems rather odd that even if you park in the first lot, the buses have to drive all the way down past Scream, turn around and come back before they drop you off, I think because of how the doors open. Honestly, if you've parked in that first lot, it's actually more efficient just to walk instead of taking the bus.

19.jpg
And another angle of said twistyness just to make you all happy.

18.jpg
Curvy, curve, curve, curve.... curve!

17.jpg
Sexy close-up shot.

16.jpg
TAKE THE TUNNEL!!!!
(Seriously, Apocalypse is jealous of YOLO's tunnel!)

15.jpg
YOLO!!!! THROUGH THE TREES!!!!

14.jpg
Looks awesome!

13.jpg
You can see the "backside" of the Log Flume station a bit better here. We were told that the station is pretty much going to stay there empty for a while, and eventually would become retail or something...

12.jpg
What an awesome photo of Goliath!

11.jpg
They really need to fix that little bit on the Superman logo before people's OCD goes insane!

When Six Flags Magic Mountain first released their Promo Video, it stared out with YOLO!!!!
1.jpg
Before we get to the YOLO pics... first we have to take these fresh new Six Flags Magic Mountain buses to get to the park!

Watch the video below and you'll see it for yourself:

And then at IAAPA, Premier Rides had these awesome YOLO pins and lanyards:
10.jpg
And then out of the tunnel, YOLOcoaster will merge with GoldRusher and become YOLOrusher!

And we all know how totally silly "YOLO" is - so in short, when someone gives you something that easy to have a little fun with... TPR is gonna take it all the way! Remember, we didn't write it or come up with it, we're just exploiting it! And it's all in good fun! YOLO!!!! ;)

Thanks for reading! Now...

^Just when YOLO gets unfunny. It suddenly becomes uncomfortably funny again! It's kinda like, "That's what she said!" Or punching someone in the nut sac. Only in textspeak. Destined to be a clasic! :lol:

I love the look of the Premier track, this ride is looking great, YOLO! But seriously, I hope this thing is a huge success and Premier starts building rides on a more regular basis.

I dunno, I always thought they were slightly annoyed at the whole "TAKE THE TUNNEL" thing, when, if you remember, it was something THEY created! :lol:

I totally forgot about the lanyards! :lmao: Also, I think some people are misinterpreting the top hat deal. Pretty sure they mean its a first-of-its-kind top hat, not the world's first top hat. However, the marketing for it is easy to get confused by, and just plain hilarious to make fun of it!

Donkeys are my way of life!

One additional thing about the Buses was that there were no "clear the tram road" announcements as they are approaching like you'd get with the trams. I know this was built into the trams and the employee in the back would make that announcement. Hopefully this is something they'll build into the buses or create some kind of automated spiel.

Awesome update, the construction is really speeding up! Maybe it could be ready in a month or two?
