Then again it's hard to look when you're zooming by at 75mph

    Here's some really cool shots of the lift being topped off:

    Note the tree in the middle of the lift hill, very cool! Also note the extrememly steep angle of the lift, suppossibly is at a 45 degree angle, in that position at that angle, will probably feel almost like you're climbinging vertically!

    Re: Tatsu annouced at Six Flags Magic Mountain

    I get to drive by this everyday and it looks pretty cool. Don't know if I will ever go even though I live down the street. Another discussion which I don't care to get into. Hopefully new owners can change my mind.

    Due to the construction up front off the Old Road, more of the rides are visible from the freeway now due to the hill be graded down.

    ^ It is not the same design at all.

    Tatsu is an original layout and not a "Clone" like Superman: Ultimate flight at SFGADV, SFGAM and SFOG.

    Re: Tatsu annouced at Six Flags Magic Mountain

    Well ... you're probably right ......... but I watched ABC7 last night .. where they did a 1 minute spread on the story ... showed a computer simulation of the ride ...... And like the Superman coaster in New Jersey ... it suspends us from our backs facing down ... layed out .. as we are flying (ALA): like Superman.

    It's the same 'style' of coaster (I.E. a flying coaster) but it's not the same layout at all. That's what I thought you meant.
