    This has the old type of RMC trains right?

    But whoa, that wave turn. <3

    Correct, it does run the first gen trains.

    Should be at Media Day if all goes according to plan!

    I actually have no legitimate sources but word on the street was that Six Flags wanted to just buy all the first gen parts left instead of putting a whole new second gen job in. Might’ve also had to do with their packed schedule not having time to fabricate new trains. Nothing I’ve heard of officially though, I’ll probably ask Fred and Alan on Media Day.

    The honest answer is probably the same as the ride itself: Six Flags is a bunch of cheap bastards

    Hey, maybe it's a good thing they went with the 1st gen trains, seeing how these 2nd gen trains are going!

    Some more testing footage.



    The airtime hill and zero g roll after the second turnaround looks like it'll be a pretty neat combo.

    Sorry, didn't realize that Pear's post earlier was a video! Must've breezed by it.

    Yeah I’m mostly excited for the twisted horseshoe and wave turn, as well as the obvious air elements. Looks to breeze through there with some good rhythm so I’m expecting a good ride.

    One week <3

    It actually looks really fab - much better than I thought it was going to.

    OK it’s not their best work ever but it’ll still be a great ride - if this had come around a few years ago we’d all have been gagging.

    Saw this video on Reddit the other day, and it seems to be carrying some great speed(especially on that wave turn <3 )!



    Like others have said, I'm pleasantly surprised at this. Obviously not their best work, but it's still an RMC. It'll be a very nice addition.

    Yeah that's looking really nice. Although I think it looks like a lower tier RMC but it still could be a Top 20 coaster for me. That wave turn looks awesome.

    It's fun to look back at the animation reveal and see a lot of people (including myself) think less of this, before slowly warming up to the ride and getting more excited.

    I'm gonna be the odd man out and drop a hot take on all y'all - this looks like one of their best rides. Not THE best...but one of the best.

    Looks like Wicked Cyclone might have a Mini-Me with how well it flies through there! Most looking forward to the drop, wave turn, and that driver’s ed turn into the S-bend at the end. Do we think this might soft open?

    To be honest, this looks like they simply upgraded Storm Chaser, which is already a great ride. We'll see how it actually rides (planning on going later this year) but definitely looks to be solid.
