^ That's possibly where some of the equipment is for the on-ride sound. Just a guess, though.

^ Or some type of themeing. I know it's a stretch but there's always a possibility of this type of thing:

So do they plan on theming this at all? Normally when a ride starts testing theyve at least made progress on other stuff. Looks like everything is complete except for that whole Bizarro part :lolr:

^ True. But you can really only see about a quarter to a third of the ride track from most of the pictures I have seen. I'm not sure what there is after the mid-course or anything like that.

I think it is a decent move to give some love to this ride, however, I just never got how Medusa, and now Bizarro fits into the Western Themed area. I just wish Great Adventure, and Six Flags for that matter, woudl remain consistent with their themes through out the park. I mean, you go from a great area like Golden Kingdom, and then you head over to Frontier, and you think you walked into a completely differently managed park.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

The Medusa not fitting in story is soo old.

I hope there's at least a Superman figure on the electronics box. That's the only way I'll pass on losing two seats.

Wow. That looks like a huge speaker in the back of the train where the 2 seats should be.
Certainly one of the things I'm looking forward to at my GAdv trip this June.

Sure it is old in many ways, but don't you kind of think it is the truth?

You don't remember the stories of Jesse James, Billy the Kid and "Medusa" causing havoc throughout the Wild West? :lmao:

Even though Bizarro won't quite fit in with the Western theme, if this is about him trying to emulate and copy Superman, I could at least give Six Flags a pass.

Or maybe in the future they retheme the flume to Aquaman and Runaway Train to some other DC Comic character and then you won't even have a Western area anymore.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

Yeah they really should just retheme the whole park to comics and be done with it already. :P
