Very interesting video. Its sad that even on those slow fairly straight pieces of track the set up camera still shook rather harshly. Thanks for sharing!

That's really cool. Yea, it sure looked rough. At the end how in the hell did that kid appear like that ? WOW that's tricky. Thanks for finding that clip.

Here is a small clip of Psyclone. I think the guys reaction to the ride at the end, sums it up very well.

You took these...FROM THE FUTURE?!?!!??!?!

The parts with the new color scheme look good, I much prefer it to the tacky magenta yellow ugness.

^ LOL. At least we know SFMM will still be there 6 months from now. Whether that's good or bad is debatable I guess. Just kiddin' with ya though...nice pics, and I like the new color scheme.

EDIT: Dude, but since you're from Vegas... with time traveling capabilites, can you tell me if I win a World Series bracelet this year? ;)

That would be the last thing on my mind if I could time travel.

On another not, thank you for the pictures. The new paint looks awesome, It'll be weird driving up the hill and seeing X when its first completely repainted, it looks like a completely different ride now!

Off the topic of X2 a bit, I was just wondering when the Metro actually last operated. Does anyone know?
