    Technically, you already do go backwards on the ride.

    Perhaps it is pre-mature to consider this video the "official announcement" that it's being billed as. This video most certainly is not of the quality, or substance that actual official announcements usually have. I could be wrong, but this video most closely resembles a leak - a video montage meant for a private audience, not the public. If so, then the reigns ought to be pulled back a bit, and consideration that SFMM's 2011 plans could in fact be different than the video describes ought to be made.
    The video is NOT the official announcement, the video was leaked and found online.

    Here is a video of a similar ride in Sweeden:

    YouTube - Kirnu (POV) - Linnanmäki

    This ride sounds like it's going to be just.... eh. I'm still going to have fun riding this but I just can't see myself waiting in line for three hours to ride this. There have been some rumors I've been hearing that their next big coaster is a B & M dive coaster for 2012. Let's hope this is true.

    This coaster is half the size of SFMM version.

    SFMM's is way bigger it is the lagrge size version. this is the samll size. And does about 3 times as many "moves" if you will.

    Robb Alvey Form Theme Park Review Also said it was one of the best coasters he has been on.

    Someone should probably tell Brady McDonald that.

    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.

    Re: Six Flags Magic Mountain 3 New Coasters For the 2011 Season

    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.

    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.
