They should either have gunmetal or titanium colored tracks and cars, make it a little dark and robotic looking to actually relate it to the terminator perhaps. Looks like a fun coaster though. Anything without 20 loops gets a good vote in my book!
To the folks talking about how a woodie doesn't fit with the Terminator: The video is a mockup in what looks like the No-Limits coaster simulator. Who knows what the final track color will look like like. It's possible that it will look completely different while having that classic woodie feel. The press release also mentions "on-board elements", which indicates to me the possibility of a soundtrack and other effects to make it more immersive. That being said, Magic Mountain has always been a coaster park, and all its "theming" is a pretty lame attempt. Don't worry about the theming and just enjoy it for what it looks like it's going to be: A world-class prefab woodie coaster.

I'm just looking forward to having an awesome woodie in CA.
Collosus doesn't count as an awesome woodie? Blashphemy!

Re: Terminator Ride Coming To Magic Mountain
Colossus hasn't been an awesome woodie in a LONG time, at least since they removed the double up and added a midcourse brake.
Terminator isn't a pre-fab woodie, either - Intamin builds those, and so far, THOSE have been the truly awesome wooden coasters of the last few years - El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure is one of the world's best wooden coasters, and is smoother than a lot of steel coasters.
