I heard some people complaining that the shoe train didn't match the theming of the coaster, but they're ACME Rocket-Powered Roller Skates, so it does! Props to SFMM for building a decent kiddie coaster, the theming looks great, better than half the coasters there.

I think the theme worked out great, even the shoes as coaster cars. I remember the old Road Runner cartoons where Wile E. Coyote strapped on the rocket roller skates, so it makes perfect sense. This is a great addition to the park. Thanks for the pictures.

Today we were at Six Flags Magic Mountain for the opening of Road Runner Express, the parks latest "family roller coaster" addition which makes it the parks 17th roller coaster!

Image
Six Flags Magic Mountain head honcho crew was on hand open the new coaster!

Image
Lots of kids and families excited about the new ride.

Image
All the Looney Tunes characters have arrived!

Image
The ribbon is cut and Road Runner Express is officially OPEN!

Image
KidTums is tall enough to ride!

Image
Elissa and KidTums were on the first public train out! This was KidTums 117th coaster!

Image
Check out the station...

Image
And they're off!

Image
They did a nice job with the area theming.

Image
This really helps round out parks coaster collection.

Image
This was the actual design from the roller coaster engineering people. (professional title)

Image
"Rocket Powered Roller Skates!"

Image
Road Runner Express is open!!!

Image
The ride really looks good!

Image
The roller coaster enthusiasts should be happy to see they went for a "lap bar only" design.

Image
The best part about the ride... 36" height restriction so smaller kids can ride!

Image
"Any more posts complaining about the height restriction...and I'll cut 'ya!"

Image
KidTums had an awesome time hanging out with all the characters!

Image
Hugs for big cats!

Image
Thank you Mr. Coyote for chasing the Road Runner all these years!

Image
We took some time to check out the rest of the park...Tyler and Robby needed their Superman credit! (They got to ride 4 times and loved it!)

Image
Ooooh....something new coming soon! =)

Image
Today is a day for KidTums!

Image
KidTums enjoys life from her cage.

Image
I'm not sure I can write a caption that won't get me in trouble...so I won't! =)

Image
Notice how the artist carefully covered up any "sensitive" areas of this apparently naked rider.

Image
The park sure is getting more liberal with merchandise these days...

Image
...oh, I see... It's a "cat."

Image
"What's with the costume? Are you a pirate?"
"P... Pirates are in this year!"

Image
Foghorn and I have patched things up over the years.

Image
Thank you Wile E. Coyote! We had a great time on your new ride!

Here is the B-Roll the park sent me:

Did this day actually come!? Is it REALLY open!? I don't believe this pictures are real. I think you dreamt this happened, snuck a camera into your dream, and brought the pictures back to the real world.
