    Well the official announcement has come and it's essentially exactly what the video shows.

        37mph for that type of ride is probably about right ... The speed is the ONLY thing that would compare this to Jaguar.

        Terminator is only 50mph.

          37mph is still faster than a coaster that you may have heard of named Space Mountain, and keep in mind that you'll be either somersaulting or vertically swaying pretty far while traveling at that speed.

            I was at SFMM yesterday, and managed not to get stung by any bees.

            Anyways, it is interesting how the employees tell you that MM is getting 3 new roller coasters. I am sorry, but a paint job on Superman and turning the cars around is not a new roller coaster. Just my honest opinion.

            One employee in the tower was trying to say they were not allowed to talk about the new rides. I asked him if he realized that it is already been announced on the news and videos are online. He didn't know how to respond.

            I rarely give credit to MM employees, but some went out of their way last night as we were leaving. While riding the "tram" to the parking lot, a motorcyclist went down on the turn just past the pedestrian crossing. It was misting outside and he probably took the turn to fast on his crotch rocket and he went down. The employee working the crossing immediately went to his aid and the tram driver stopped his tram to broadcast the emergency over his radio to get the Sheriff's there, who responded in less than a minute. Good job by these employees.
            "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

              But I don't think they are marketing it as 3 new coasters. They are calling it 3 new coaster experiences. A subtle difference, but I think a fair and accurate one. Superman will be a very different experience, there's no getting around that.
              Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

                True, didn't think of it that way.

                        I would be surprised if they didn't do it this year. I did a google search and didn't see anything yet. I'll reach out to our press contact to see if they have any dates yet.

                        I've gone on the Toys for Tots days before, and it's surprisingly not very busy. But as always, a Sunday will be less busy than a Saturday.

                          I went on a Toy Drive Saturday two years ago and it was extremely busy. I think it was due mainly to some cheerleading event and not necessarily the toys for tots donations itself.

                            Cheerleaders should always be avoided at all costs ... no matter the park.

                                  Any word on the official opening for Green Lantern? I suspect Memorial Dayish.

                                    Have not heard anything yet, but I'd say that Memorial Day is as good a guess as any.
