As I've said, I've heard that ROAR! at SFDK (Vallejo, CA) is still a good ride. But it's the first to have had the Millennium Flyer trains on it, so chances are, that's what's kept it good.

I'm finally beginning to be able to trace the layout of Terminator. Looks like it's going to be great! :br

^Roar at SFDK is an ok ride, but I wouldn't call it great or even good. While it isn't "kick your ass" rough, I definitely wouldn't describe it as smooth either. With that said, I have heard that it was much better when it opened. I am sure some of the roughness comes from maintenance issues.

Yeah, I forgot about Roar, and did not mention Wildcat due to the addition of MF trains, I heard it is much better now.

I've been on a couple. They're not bad, but roughness is usually present, especially in Gwazi's case. ROAR! @ SFDK is ok, pretty smooth for a woodie. I'm not sure if I've been on any more GCI's, but I'd say they're just "Ok" if I average out what I've been on so far. Can't wait for Terminator, definitely the best looking GCI so far! :airtime: :airtimer:

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

^ PATIENCE!!!!!!!

March 15th Update!

Image
Here is today's signature shot! While it doesn't look too much different that a couple of weeks ago, there are some notable changes going on.

Image
For one the first drop looks complete and the turnaround from the lift hill is getting worked on.

Image
And those are some VERY big popsicle sticks sitting down there ready to be installed!

Image
Not much left in the staging area.

Image
Yup...still all looks very familiar.

Image
Mr. Small Crane is hanging out waiting for the crew to come back on Monday morning.

Image
Looks like some work is about to be done on the bridge.

Image
Hmmm...something looks different here...

Image
From this angle the ride is getting much bigger now!

Image
You can clearly see the top of the lift and the turnaround in place.

Image
Not much different here.

Image
Same.

Image
OMG! EXTREME ANGLE!!!

Image
For those of you slab enthusaists...here you go.

Image
Remember that alien transmitter from a few updates ago? It's well hidden now so that MiB will never be able to find it!

Image
Woah! I spot STEEL!

Image
Somehow I have a feeling they won't be cycling trains for us next week at West Coast Bash!

Image
Abrupt ending?

Image
Random close up.

Image
Another angle of the recent progress.

Image
TRACK SPOTTING!

Image
Some more different angles for you guys.

Image
Yup, this ride is DENSE!

Image
It looks so ready to open!

Image
Terminator...THROUGH THE VU!

Image
THROUGH THE TREES!

Image
One more look at this week's progress.

Image
It was a beautiful day for track spotting!

Image
And yes, Deja Vu is back open! So thanks to that we were able to get all these cool angles of Terminator!

Image
SEE! I told you it was open.

Image
It looks very sexy. How's it going Great America fanboys? =)

Image
Looks like the single rider line has been removed.

Image
We haven't given you a shot of "Arrow Junction" in a while.

Image
*Resist making comment* *Resist makeing comment!*

Image
Helllo Lo-Q (and helllllo ladies!)

Image
Prices and availability.

Image
Yup $10 to add X2!

Image
Just in case you were wondering....

Image
The old Flash Pass/Stroller area has some new signage. If you're lost come here.

Image
If you need a stroller or one of these electric karts, come here!

Image
Kids! Watch out for that random attacking barbed wire monster!

Image
Royal Caribbean was here. You could win a boat! (well for a few days at least!)

Image
That's right. If you are a smoker you can light up as long as you're within these lines...that's right, stay within this small space...smoke within these three inches, right in here...that includes the chicklets, but not the erasers...<br> (Know what movie that's from? EMAIL DAN! mrt0ad13@aol.com)

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That is one good-looking coaster! :lover:

Makes me wish I could ride it

Too bad I probably won't be able to head to SoCal anytime soon.

Wow, the ride is looking mighty sexy.

Glad Deja Vu is open, can't wait to ride it next week.

Thanks Robb. And sorry, its just, with this coaster, I have NO patience ;) I'd just as soon grab a hammer and pull a bunch of all nighters to get this ride done sooner, but I'd probably be sued for something and potentially break the ride before its even done. Something I dont plan on letting happen or doing.

Mental note - if this guy shows up to WCB...NO TERMINATOR TOUR FOR HIM! :lolr:
