The image from google maps is quiet outdated, because you can see they are still builing Tatsu. Now at that mound of dirt is an office building. And I believe it has been vacant ever since it was built.

And I too remeber that Cheveron station being there as long as I can remeber. Also if you ever stop at that Cheveron station around the park's closing time. It will be one of the busiest gas stations you will ever stop at.

Developers have talked about building a Citywalk type thing on that plot of land, but I doubt very much it's gonna happen at this point esp with the economy still flatlining.

That would've been cool to have a Giga Coaster go onto another island like millennium force!

The Google Maps satellite image still shows Psyclone, as well as Tatsu under construction, so, yeah, it's a bit outdated. :lol:

Remember, too, that SFMM isn't open during the week, so all work on Termalypse will be done during that time. It is possible, though, for the ride to be closed one weekend, though. It was running nicely today, and TPR's own William (wrs28330) was working in the station assigning rows and offered me the row of my choice (I took Row 11---the very back). And despite the weather, the fire on both X2 and Apocanator was working.

Hopes Magic Mountain gets a used Roller Skater that 36" kids can ride.

I think they'll go with the work during the week then close it one weekend. Can't wait to see S:EFK in person, looks great from pictures. Also SFMM should have let Eric rename Terminator. :lol:

The only Mound of Dirt I'm worried about is the one next to Deja Vu.

"Also SFMM should have let Eric rename Terminator." (cooksta77)

Actually, that would be unsmart. They'd end up with the most WTF ride name ever.

When they moved the old road didnt they have to move the chevron station? I think they did, I remember the sign got moved back as well.
