From Xtreme Coasters
I just received an email from Kristin Siebenecher, the public relations manager for Six Flags Great Adventure:
MEDIA ALERT * MEDIA ALERT For Immediate Release June 10, 2006
On June 12, Run With The Bulls At Six Flags Great Adventure As The Monstrous 'El Toro' Wooden Roller Coaster Is Unleashed
WHAT: El Toro, Six Flags Great Adventure's highly-anticipated, monstrous wooden coaster, will celebrate its grand opening June 12 in Jackson, NJ. Media are invited to enjoy exclusive ride time on the coaster before it opens to the public that afternoon.
WHEN: MONDAY, June 12, 2006 at 11 a.m.
WHERE: Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson, NJ. Exit 7A of NJ Turnpike to I-195 East to Exit 16A; OR GSP to Exit 98 to I-195 West to Exit 16. All media - use employee entrance 100 yds. past main entrance. Follow signs to media event. Event starts promptly at 11 am.
DETAILS: El Toro, which has the steepest vertical drop of any wooden coaster in the world, 76 white-knuckled degrees, marries the smooth height, speed, technology and exciting twisting elements of steel coasters with a classic wooden design.
El Toro's launch will be highlighted by roller coaster enthusiasts from six states including New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey taking part in a "Running of the Bulls." Led by Spanish "Running of the Bulls" veteran Jesus Urtasun of Willingboro, NJ, participants will charge toward the coaster dressed in traditional red-and-white Running of the Bulls attire, and compete to be the first to take on the fierce El Toro.
At 188 feet tall, reaching 70 mph, El Toro ranks among the tallest and fastest wooden roller coasters in the world. In addition to its record-breaking vertical drop, its 4,400 feet of mountainous track has the second tallest, fastest and longest drop of any wooden coaster in America.
GREAT VIDEO, AUDIO AND INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITIES! TV ASSIGNMENT EDITORS - El Toro-mounted reverse point-of-view camera will be available to film your reporter, and great ride b-roll tapes will be available.
Expect a full report for Coaster World News later Monday night, and hopefully a reverse POV that will be uploaded Tuesday morning.
