    Terminator Salvation Construction Updates

    Terminator Salvation: The Ride
    Photo Update Thread

    Hey everyone,

    This will be the new (and only, I believe) thread to track Six Flags Magic Mountain's new woodie construction. If you visit the park and take photos, please don't hesitate to post them here.


    PRESS RELEASE & COASTER INFO


    Title: Six Flags Magic Mountain to Add 16th Coaster to it's World Renowned Collection

    Subtitle: TERMINATOR: THE COASTER to Debut in 2009

    Date: 10/22/08


    Six Flags Magic Mountain announced today the addition in 2009 of a new wooden roller coaster to its world renowned coaster collection. Developed by the same team that produced the new X2 experience, TERMINATOR: THE COASTER will combine innovative thrill ride technology with the signature science fiction punch of the Terminator brand. The debut is scheduled to coincide with the release of the McG directed film Terminator Salvation™ next year, and will introduce fans to an entirely new universe inspired by the film's post apocalyptic setting.

    "Our mission at Six Flags Magic Mountain is to provide entertainment that appeals to a wide range of tastes and this specially designed wooden coaster will be a proven winner among guests of all ages," said Jay Thomas, Six Flags Magic Mountain's Park President. "Designed around the theme of the successful Terminator movie brand, this ride will draw thrill seekers from around the world."

    Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek, co-CEO's of The Halcyon Company, credit Six Flags with taking the ride to the next level in adventure. "The combination of the universe created by the film and the setting of this ride will provide fans with an adventure that keeps the spirit of the story," said Kubicek and Anderson jointly.

    The $10 million coaster, engineered exclusively for the Valencia theme park by Great Coasters International Inc. (GCII), TERMINATOR: THE COASTER will feature a loading station "fly-thru," a state-of-the-art sight and sound package, and unique queue line and on-board entertainment elements. The GCII-designed Millennium Flyer coaster trains will zip through five belly-flopping hills and six high speed banked turns over 2,850 feet of track to create a ride that delivers the acrobatic thrills of a modern roller coaster while retaining the nostalgic look and feel of a classic "woodie."

    TERMINATOR: THE COASTER will be located in the northwest corner of the park, next to Déjà Vu and is slated for a spring 2009 opening. With the addition of TERMINATOR: THE COASTER, Six Flags Magic Mountain will be home to 16 world class coasters.

    Thanks for the photos, Robb!

    I actually saw them first on your site and was even at SFMM on Sat. However, I completely neglected to go up in the Sky Tower and now I wish I did.

    It's one of the more colorful tracks that I've seen. They are keeping up a good pace in building it.

    I still don't understand how a wooden coaster equals terminator, but so be it.

    Awesome pics. Thanks for sharing Robb.

    It will be nice to have a good woodie in SoCal, well, at least until the next earthquake.
