I'm actually thinking about doing a few reports where I just lay out the pictures as they were taken, even if they don't quite make sense, just for the fun of it!

Thanks again for sharing!


To be honest, I did very little picture order work throughout the whole report (although there was some). The memories came back in the order the pictures were received and it was kinda fun telling the story...in fact at some points I think it came off as random which is perfect.

These last few though, are in a really bizarre order that my computer assigned. It's cool though because it started with a picture of myself and ended with SFM so it almost looks calculated. Almost!

Thank you ROBB for providing the best place possible to share all this, for getting my ass out of the country, and for being featured on the front page 3 times! Totally didn't expect that!!!

That long-ass hill to get to the castillo COULD be avoided by taking this train, which honked at you if you got in its way.

I went back to La Feria on that last visit mostly to ride Montana Infinitum, but sadly, it was not operating. I'm really glad they got it running for us on the TPR tour!!!!!

And, I can't wait to get back to Guadalajara to ride the Bullet! That will be the first coaster that I have taken pictures with disassembled, and then later rode!

Well, I just got back from Mexico City again, I was there for a big 4 day music festival. It was NUTS. Anyway, I made some time to renew my Pase Anual at Six Flags Mexico, and thought I would take some time to share some pictures with you fine folks.
01.JPG
We'll start with an OMG MEDUSA UPDATE!!!!!
02.JPG
Here we can see the crew installing a curvy piece of track.
03.JPG
This turn was previously a lot higher off the ground if my memory serves me correctly.
04.JPG
The coaster is situated on a densely forested hill and isn't easy to take pictures of. It should end up being very 'Outlaw Run...ny'
05.JPG
Prices this year. Renewing my AP was MX$480 which is US$36.60
06.JPG
Medusa towers over the entry plaza of Six Flags Mexico.
07.JPG
Random themeing at Superman El Ultimo Escape
08.JPG
Lift hill action poking up over the restaurant
09.JPG
You can barely make out the insane first drop and another hill through the structure
10.JPG
If I saw track, I took a picture. Like I said, it's not easy to photograph, especially inside the park.
11.JPG
Really, this is all you can see inside the park.
12.JPG
Yes, it's okay to take pics on the ferris wheel. This was the best I could do, there was this terrified girl in my car and she wouldn't let me scoot over to take a better shot.
13.JPG
Cool shot of the park.
14.JPG
Random flippy ride thing and Vampire Infestation. I heard a rumor that it's gonna go Zombie soon.
15.JPG
S&S fun. They were only running one tower so I neglected to ride it.
16.JPG
Sling Shot opens next week. It's pretty big and should end up being a lot of fun! I saw it testing.
17.JPG
The first boomerang ever on the planet. With it's silly 3 minute first lift.
18.JPG
So many flats at this park, it makes for a really nice atmosphere.
19.JPG
This is the entrance to the kids area, apparently the facade is from the 'before Six Flags' period.
20.JPG
Another cool random flat.
21.JPG
Double Decker merry go round. For some reason I never noticed this before.
22.JPG
Another shot of Sling Shot. For those who have been, it's between Boomerang and the Swings.
23.JPG
Another shot inside the park. This is just inside the park. I'm not sure what they were doing with that box on a string but they were moving it all over the place.
24.JPG
And one more shot from the parking lot for good measure. Notice the track IN the trees? This is gonna be a cool ride!
25.JPG
After I got back into the city off the Metro, there was this crazy thunderstorm. Everybody was waiting in the exit to let it pass. I love Mexico City!!!!!
