I got to wondering how Millennium Flyer trains hold up over time. What concerns me is their construction out of a lot of wood. They look great and the ones I rode on ROAR! at SFDK were fine, but how are they now?

And...does anyone know the color scheme of the trains Terminator will have? I'd guess each train will have its own color as well.

I mean, you've got Colossus (which used to be awesome) and Ghostrider (which used to be awesome) and both now suck. And then you've got Giant Dipper (which admittedly I haven't ridden in awhile).



What, is there a SoCal curse where good woodies just end up horrible? Let's home this one's immune...

March 1st Update!

Image
Today's Terminator update begins with a shot of the first drop looking pretty much complete!

Image
Here's the signauture overview shot thanks to Mr. Sky Tower.

Image
You can see a lot of REALLY BIG popsicle sticks stitting out there. Lift Hill perhaps?

Image
More popsicle sticks. The supply is certainly getting depleted. They need to send out more decepticons to collect energon in order to create more.

Image
This area still looks about the same.

Image
Not much has changed here.

Image
From the fround level it looks very similar to last week.

Image
CLOSE UP VIEW!!!

Image
Terminator Salvation: The Ride and Deja Vu are a good mix!

Image
Fence crack view.

Image
Pretty!

Image
Peep hole view #1.

Image
Peep Hole View #2

Image
We see you Mr. Sneaky Terminator!

Image
Today was a BEAUTIFUL day to be at the park!

Here's an update from the rest of the park....

Image
I'm kind of bummed the bridge got removed. It really seemed to add something to this area.

Image
Does anyone know what used to be here? The first 5 people to email the answer to Dan win a TPR Bag-of-Crap! The first person to send a PICTURE to Dan of what used to be here gets a HUGE box of crap! EMAIL DAN: mrt0ad13@aol.com

Image
Did I mention today was BEAUTIFUL???

Image
Candy lady hard at work makes me happy!

Image
Wow! Looks like the new Flash Pass center is almost ready to open!

Image
Here you can get an idea of what rides will be available (the ride list can change day-to-day though)

Image
Looks like a few more signs need to get placed.

Image
Add X2 to your flash pass for just $5! You'll be given a reservation time in which to go to X2.

Image
The pricing is very interesting. If these are the final prices, then the upgrade to Gold is a no-brainer!

Image
You can get a sneak peek inside of the cash registers.

Image
Pre-show room! "How to use your Q-Bot!"

Image
The blah, blah, blah, part of the show...

Image
Blah, blah, blah part deux!

Image
Oh, look! They now have them electric buggies for people like Jeff Johnson.

Image
....Or...um...Robb.

Image
Cold Stone is now open! Yay!

Image
Today was the 2nd day of the Magic Mountain job fair! Let's have a look around...

Image
This guy looks awfully familiar....

Image
Where is the line for "I just want to take pictures and steal some cotton candy?"

Image
This is where I would FAIL!

Image
Time for my intereview!

Image
Sylvester is hoping they will hire him.

Image
The test seat applied for a job in valet parking.

Image
Security is looking to hire the members of ZZ Top.

Image
All sexy men and women apply here!

Image
I want her job!

Image
The news were here to cover the job fair. Sorry guys! We beat you to it! =)

Image
Don't forget! You can ride in May!

Image
Any idea which coaster this is?

Image
Don't forget to buy your combo pass and meet up with TPR at Hurricane Harbor this summer!

The more I see of this coaster, the better and better it gets. Can't wait to get an up close view of this thing at WCB and to finally ride it in May!

The pricing sign doesn't appear to mention the rental fee. That could be good. Or a bait-and-switch.

The other thing I wonder about is the no refunds for park hours. I hope that doesn't include days where they decide to shut down early due to lack of crowds...
