Six Flags Magic Mountain's New Coaster Construction

15 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, Took some new pics from the construction site of SFMM's new B&M Flyer yesterday. At the moment, it is still a lot of dirt and land clearing. But you can see they have started marking off some areas for footers and they have the steel ready to go. Here's yesterday's photos: http://www.themeparkreview.com/sfmmnew06/current.htm And photos from about a week ago showing some of the track and the new flyer parts that have arrived: http://www.themeparkreview.com/sfmmnew06/oct8_1.htm Also, that October 8th update shows a bit of the development going on in front of the park, which I'm now told has been zoned for "retail and residential." While I can't imagine houses going into that area it would be nice to get a few more restaurants within walking distance of the park. Enjoy the updates! --Robb

Thanks for the update Rob.. The photos are awesome. Sort of regret not taking that many photos at SFMM. Any news on the new one their building at SF Over Georgia? Aparently this is one monster of a coaster that goes outside of the parK? Is that true. I also heard that its called Goliath. Hulk

So we managed to catch a test run today!! Not the first, but hey, at least we were there to check it out! Yeah!!!!! :P Anyway, here's some pics from today. It does seem to fly (get it, fly) around the course pretty darn fast! And if SUF's pretzel loop is any indication, this one looks pretty damn good too! And the first part, the double inversion SMACKDOWN looks cool as does the "egg turn." Ok, ok....here's some pics..... tatsutest8.jpg Sure enough, there it goes, up the lift hill complete with 32 water dummies! (Oh, wait....two of them seem to be on a smoke break!) =) tatsutest13.jpg The view from the entrance plaza is forever changed, just wait till Revy is back running again too! tatsutest3.jpg Not only was Tatsu testing, but so was Sky Tower! tatsutest5.jpg Temporarily in the flying position between the first and second inversion. (Watch out, the water dummies pee on you!!!) tatsutest7.jpg Pretzel Loop goodness into a shed! Seriously though, the Pretzel Loop is HUGE, hopefully it will deliver! tatsutest9.jpg Water Dummies say: YAY FIRST DROP!!! tatsutest16.jpg A close-up shows the twistyness of the second inversion. tatsutest20.jpg Thanks worker guy for getting it testing, but you might want to get out of the way! Also, here is our testing video, this one in the daylight so you can actually see it! :)http://www.themeparkreview.com/sfmmnew06/tatsutesting.zip Hell, we've even make it so you don't even need to go to our site because we love you all that much! =) Enjoy! --Robb
