The lack of lighting on the coaster just adds to the effects. I knew it was coming, but the turn after the first drop got me every time in the dark.



Haha me too! Definitely my favorite part of the ride =)

I had a freaking amazing time yesterday. Major props to Robb and Elissa for putting together a great event (my first). The night time ride operator really was awesome (although from previous sfmm trips I already knew that he loves TPR). It was really great being there from 9 in the morning to 11 at night, it allowed me to get a ton of nerd footage. So I dedicate my video from yesterday to TPR! (Pretty awesome shameless self promotion right?)

^ Great video and footage, you've got some awesome angles there. My favorite was the sunset shot of Tatsu at 2:26. Makes me wish it was yesterday again!

Photos and more from Termination Day!

The goal of Termination Day was to let people get their fill of rides in on the brand new Termination Salvation: The Ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

And get their fill they did! With morning and night ERT combined some people got as many as 35 rides in!

I'd say most people got between 10 and 15, but if you were a crazy die-hard Terminator fan, you could get quite a few more!

The ride was running AWESOME! It seems to have really broken in quite a bit since the opening. And night rides. OMFG. INSANE!!!

I'll let the photos to most of the talking but overall it was a PERFECT event. (And I know I'm biased, but still!)

ps. If you want one of those awesome Take the Tunnel shirts, order them HERE!

Good morning everyone! And welcome to your Salvation! We limited the tickets for Termination Day to 200 participants as we didn't want the ERT line to be very long...and it wasn't!

TPR member and SFMM awesome supervisor William briefed the new recruits on how to get to the transport vehicles.

Wes says "I've found a different road to Salvation!"
terminationday_04b.jpg
Sorry guys, this is a private event...oh, wait a second...they do seem to have the TPR green wristbands on!

Finally, we arrive to the location of the transport shuttles.

This is the Hunter Killer's view of the area.

Barriers have been set up to defend the location.

You must first get past this chick to get to your Salvation.

This dude was all over the place!

Most members of the resistance wear a blue shirt and tie.

Is TPR ready to TAKE THE TUNNEL!!!

Robb shows off the sexy new shirt designed for this event!

And this would be an example of TAKING THE TUNNEL!!!

TAKE THE TUNNEL!!!!

The morning ERT session totally kicked ass! Some people got in as many as 23 rides!
terminationday_13.jpg
Yes, it's true...the front of the train says "Transrail."
terminationday_13a.jpg
The Bebes even took the tunnel.
terminationday_14.jpg
Terminator Salvation: The Ride kicks ass!!!
terminationday_14a.jpg
Note! This is a "Station Fly-By" NOT a tunnel!
terminationday_15.jpg
And this would be the exact spot where you will hear "TAKE THE TUNNEL" shouted at the riders!
terminationday_16.jpg
Yup, that's the first drop there in the distance.
terminationday_16a.jpg
Awesome hair in the front row!
terminationday_17.jpg
Fire, Fire everywhere...you're gonna get burnt!

Curvy train with the sex box in the back!
terminationday_17b.jpg
Did we mention there was airtime?
terminationday_18.jpg
At lunch we had some interesting characters come hang out with us!
terminationday_19.jpg
Then to escape some of the heat it was off to the Alvey's for a mid-day break and dip in the pool!
terminationday_20.jpg
Um, shouldn't this be like MELTING Dan or something? If you think Dan should get out of the water...EMAIL HIM ***NOW*** mrt0ad13@aol.com
terminationday_21.jpg
"Hi today we are doing our Dan impression and not going anywhere NEAR the swimming pool!"
terminationday_22.jpg
And if there is a TPR party, there will always be some of Robb's insane wing sauce!
terminationday_23.jpg
Both cute AND hot!
terminationday_24.jpg
Little dudes were taking the tunnel....on Mario Kart!
terminationday_25.jpg
Ian tried to look sexy while playing pool...FAIL! =)
terminationday_26.jpg
And of course there is a lineup for food!
terminationday_27.jpg
Then came night ERT. And this is when the day went from AWESOME to OMFG Out of CONTROL!
terminationday_27a.jpg
"Night rides will totally rupture your spleen!"
terminationday_28.jpg
At night Termination Salvation: The Ride really does look more like a war zone!
terminationday_29.jpg
This was seriously one of the most awesome ERT sessions EVER!!!
terminationday_30.jpg
With one of the most awesome and enthusiastic ride ops ever!!!
terminationday_31.jpg
"If you haven't ridden Terminator Salvation the ride...at night...between the 10:26 and 11:04...when the moon is full...and two crows are pertched atop Sky Tower...and there is fudge melting in your pocket...then you haven't ridden Terminator Salvation: The Ride!"
terminationday_32.jpg
And we leave you with the final explosion of the night to end this report!

Thank you to everyone at Six Flags Magic Mountain for another AWESOME TPR event!!!

Thank you to Dan and Jeff for the use of your photos!

See you all very soon (we hope!)

Yay I'm in 2 of the pictures!!! Thanks for the comments about my video, and thanks Robb for making the video appear in my post (whenever I try it never works). I say we vote Mike ride op of the year!

Edit: does anyone else see the ghosts in the "war zone" picture?

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.
