When I passed by again at 11:30, it was gone.


It wasn't stuck. That's the normal brake position to make sure the ride flips as little as possible. :devil: ;)


Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom, not Green Lantern. The technicians may have been doing their morning routine checkups especially if the park is opening that day.

Those new pics have got me real excited! Can't wait to see the loop, station, testing and especially curious tto see what the theming will be about after what Tim said!

The super sick looking dive loop thingy! It looks so spectacular from almost every angle! Taken from the other side of the plaza.


Just wondering but can we just call it a Flying Snake Dive? It looks a lot like Storm Runners.

I would call it that, but rcdb doesn't seem to think so.

Great pics SFMMGeek. Kind of sad Superman Plaza wasn't open when I was there Saturday. Guess I should have gone yesterday.

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

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!
Viewed 13765 times

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.

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? =)

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

And then out of the tunnel, YOLOcoaster will merge with GoldRusher and become YOLOrusher!

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...

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....
Viewed 13765 times

When Six Flags Magic Mountain first released their Promo Video, it stared out with YOLO!!!!

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

And then at IAAPA, Premier Rides had these awesome YOLO pins and lanyards:

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!
