This site is great - the 2 page history of the Magic Mountain Revolution is some of the best stuff I've seen around - and haven't seen anywhere else. I really like the color scheme of the trains in the 80's. Each train had a different color lead car, very cool!
I remember when the trains looked like that. I like the recent paint job which makes one of the trains look very similar to how it did in the 70's too. It looks like it does in the 2nd postcard. Now if they could just do something about those OTSR's.
My mother (1946-2009) once asked me why I go to Magic Mountain so much. I said I feel the most alive when I'm on a roller coaster.
2010 total visits: SFMM-9, KBF-2
2010 total ride laps: 437
I dig the Drachen Fire page. Interesting stuff.
....."It pulled 12 g's and injured many rider's necks and backs. The coaster only operated a few years....."
12g's?? Holy crap!
SOB and MS dont even come close to 12g's- and yet they still manage to do the same damage! ;)
Lifetime Raptor flights: 2175 :)
It's all about getting around the barrels or over the fences, right leads, no faults, fastest time and still looking pretty when done. What's so hard about that? :)
Thanks for sharing Demon that's great stuff!
