Hey LI Entertainment!

Did not check out the new pictures of Nitro yet, but I did notice that you had a link to some pictures of Deja Vu. (link is http://www.li-fun.com/dejavu.htm)

I just wanted to let you know that the pictures that you have posted for "Construction at SFGAm form 3/19/2001" are not at SFGAm, but are at SFOG!

The ones below that, taken by Cyberian Husky on 03-10-2001 are indeed at SFGAm (in the employee parking lot).

Probably just a typo on your part, but I just wanted to clear that up in case people start asking questions.

There's much more track in the employee parking lot now, or at least as of a week ago.

WOW! It's just like "Speed 2", only it's a bus instead of a boat!

I am LOVING the pics...construction's finally finished and in 17 days, a little boy's dream of flying will finally come true...

By the way, anyone happen to know where the station is going to be located, and where the line is going to start? Movie Town or Looney Tunes Seaport? (I have an idea, but...)


April 7, 2001 -- SFGA adds some NITRO and kicks it into high gear...

Got to be Goofy -- June 29, 2001???

"WOW! It's just like "Speed 2", only it's a bus instead of a boat!"

Is that a Simpsons reference?

I think they called it, "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."

Has anyone heard an official opening date for Nitro? Do they think it will be operating opening day?

Captain Joel, on April 4-6, SFGA is doing a NITRO: First Blast campout with competitions. The winners get first ride, with the front row going to first place, the second row to second place, and so on. I'm assuming that if they'll be running the ride on the 6th, it will be open on Opening Day, April 7th.

BTW, there's a meeting of NITRO freaks on Opening Day at about 9:30-ish at the Front Gate. We're getting our season passes validated and will look to get onto NITRO front row first thing. Check out the meeting calendar for April 7th for details! That goes for all of you!
