Re: Terminator Coaster is Going Vertical!
We got 19 rides in last night, and we still wanted more.
The preshow is brilliant, it does a great job of setting up the ride, and there's a ton of detail. The ride itself- easily the best wooden coaster in California, and it gets even better at night. Definitely ride this.
One question, how does a wooden coaster fit in with the Terminator theme?
The machines have gone through and destroyed SFMM, and set up their own stuff, including a T-600 factory. But then the Resistance cleaned them out and built a 'safe house' bunker inside. Unfortunately for us, the machines pick the very moment that we're in the pre-show room to begin making their assault, and the factory starts up again, etc. Our only hope is to be 'rescued' out via the old 'escape train' that's somehow still operating.
It's one of those themes that rescues you out of where you are, only to return you right back to the same point. Can't really hold too much against SFMM for that as similar non-sequiter plots are seen in countless Disney rides (Indiana Jones, Stitch's Great Escape, etc), and other themed attractions.
The important part here is that SFMM has made its best attempt at themeing in its history, and possibly in the entire 48 year history of Six Flags with this coaster. And if that wasn't enough, this is a REALLY REALLY fun coaster! Not that the bar's really high, but Terminator's easily the best wooden coaster in California.
So come out and ride! Terminator is great fun, and isn't that what matters most?
TAKE THE TUNNEL!!!
