I am optimistic that the themeing will very extensive. Didn't tim say they are spending like 1million on themeing alone? That's alot of money to play with for themeing!

I have an idea of what the trains are going to look like. I think the front end is going to be like the front end of a Jeep. And the back will look like the back end of a Jeep. To support my idea I noticed that on the SFMM site that Terminator is supported by Jeep. Tim said the trains are Millennium Flyer with the front end changed. Als I thought it would make sense if it was Jeep because they are kind of like army cars. Does anyone think my idea is plausible?

^I actually think that'd be a pretty good idea, it is a plausible idea. What I dont get is why jeep's parent company asks for a bail out and then sponsors a ride :?r

I have heard from an employee (senior lead) that there is a Jeep in one of the preshows. Possibly under the station. So there is definitely a Jeep tie in. Can't wait to see how they tie in a wood coaster to a steel themed world.

One thing i noticed though is that during WCB they said that the opening of TS:TR is supposed to be the same day as the movie. But the movie comes out on the 21st. And public opening is supposed to be the 23rd. I wonder if they just meant it was going to coincide with the movie coming out same day as media day

May 3rd - Terminator Salvation: The Ride UPDATE!

Hey everyone! We are back from our trans Atlantic cruise, so that means more Terminator updates for all of you!

There has been a TON of progress in the past couple of weeks! Check it out below, but you'll see the station fly-by, transfer track area, lots of buildings being framed (I'm assuming pre-show buildings), what looks like the first pieces of area theming on site, and the entrance SIGN!

And something very interesting appears to be happening on the ride...but read the update below to find out! (Oh, and be sure to try to answer the Email Dan question!)

Enjoy....

Image
Oooh! We have SIGN!

Image
Here is today's cyber-cam shot. As you can see the ride is almost done!

Image
Quite a difference a few bulldozers, new wood and a couple of years make, huh? =)

Image
Work is being done on the station (to the left) and the transfer track area (to the right)

Image
You can already see some queue is getting set up, and hmm...what is that I see...let's take a closer look...

Image
Could this be...theming???

Image
Have a look at the sign and the bridge.

Image
Zoom out just a little and you can see something being built just on the other site of the bridge. What could that be?

Image
Another look at the current construction. Lots of framework going up. I wonder what those could be for? Pre-show buildings? On-ride photos?

Image
A slightly more zoomed out shot of the entire ride.

Image
Not much wood left over now!

Image
A few random popsicle sticks laying around.

Image
Hmm...two of those things do not belong...let's take a closer look...

Image
I wonder what those beat up cars are for? =)

Image
Oh, they must be for Goliath! My bad!

Image
Here's another look at the entrance area. Let's check out another angle!

Image
Oooh! Peek-A-Boo! What's this I see? I spy TWO TPR members in this picture! Do you know who they are? If you know, EMAIL DAN! mrt0ad13@aol.com The first 10 people with the correct answer will get a TPR Bag-Of-Crap!

Image
Winner every time!

Image
Hmm...looks like another building getting renovated? (Or even demolished?) Maybe this will be Terminator Salvation: The Shop!

Image
With all this goodness going on, in the "disappointing" category, the restrooms by the ride opened back up, and while some work was done (new stall doors, etc) they didn't look that much better than before. There wasn't even a baby changing station! C'mon, SFMM, if you're going to be "family friendly" you should be adding the things that families need that you'll find at other parks!

Image
And from the other side of the bridge you can see some more work being done.

Image
Up, it's a bridge.

Image
Wonder what that shed will eventually be?

Image
Ahh, this is still one of the prettiest shots you can get!

Image
Ooh! Station fly-by! Yay!

Image
Random track.

Image
More station fly-by.

Image
Well, this is interesting..

Image
Are they tunneling in that turn around?

Image
Sort of looks like it! So maybe THIS is what happened to those X2 tunnels! :D

Image
GCI Station Fly-by = AWESOME!

Image
Another look at the very DENSE first drop!

Image
Want another station fly-by pic? Ok!

Image
My doctor told me that I need to have at least three random track pictures per Terminator Salvation: The Ride update.

Image
Very interesting...

Image
More random track!

Image
And one more look at the entrance...that's right Terminator Salvation: The Ride...it won't be long now! See you in a few weeks!

Thanks for reading!

It's amazing how much sfmm can do in one week, last week none of those walls or pre show building frames, were there, the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo hut was just a frame, and most importantly that sexy signage wasnt there. I'm starting to think that the trolls working the late shifts theory is true

Awesome pictures. It's looking fantastic, and love that entrance sign, it's better than I thought it would be. The little structure by the bridge is fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo I believe.

I believe they may be working 24/7 to get this thing done on time, because don't they need a week or two to test the trains? They probably have workers all night working on it, using large light lamps to see.

I can't wait to see the progress by next week, they'll probably be testing the trains, and we'll all see what they look like.
