Does anybody else think that SFMM is not where its at this year? The whole thing just seems so gimmicky........

Don't touch the watch.

I got the impression that X would be built over ugly parking lot asphalt. Doesn't look that way to me. Thanks Jeff, these are some pretty great photos once again, particularly Riddler's Revenge. I'm iching to ride that right now.

Favorite parks:
Knott's Berry Farm
Alton Towers
Cedar Point

Stealth: And you can build it faster right:)
It's a prototype ride, they are just making sure every part of it is done correctly. It may not be til next year before it's ready. From what SFMM has built in the last few years, I think the thrillseekers can wait, something to look forward to next year

God Bless Coasters!!

Thanks for saying that Michael. Everyone seems to be an expert on building coasters efficiently all of a sudden. I guess if it never gets built, we'll just be "stuck"with Goliath, Riddler's Rvenge, Viper, Batman, Superman, Ninja and Deja Vu. "rolling eyes".....

gimmick: 1) a secret means of controlling a prize wheel 2) a trick device used by a magician 3) anything that tricks or mystifies; deceptive or secret device 4) any gadget or contrivance whose name is unknown or not recalled.

After reading the above definition of gimmick, I think that it's a bad word to use in describing the new coasters at SFMM. *** This post was edited by Intamin Fan on 4/13/2001. ***

If you're gonna build a "prototype" coaster in earthquake-prone southern california, especially one like X, I say, TAKE YOUR TIME!!!!!!!

All i know is that X is gonna be one awsome ride and who cares when it opens as long as it does!

X will be complete this year. It all depends on how long the ride going to be. Expect X around July( if they start building right away) if they don't start building now then probally August or something. I don't know, X's opening is a toss up. As for Deja Vu, it's a giant boomerang! I took a trip to SFMM Friday, and Deja Vu's loop is huge! By the looks of it, the loop was bigger than Psyclone. Well we can say Deja Vu's inversions puts B:TR's inversions to shame in size. Can't wait till Deja Vu opens and X in the near future.

Yes Deja Vu is really huge compared to Psyclone

Psyclone has a drop of 95 feet probably stands no more the 100 to 105 feet.

Deja Vu Drops 196 feet,the Spikes stand 196 feet, the Cobra is 110 feet tall and the loop stands 102 feet tall.

The only thing bigger on that side of the park is Riddlers Revenge, but wait until X is built it will make all the other rides expect Superman:TE and Goliath like like kiddy rides lol have any of you seen how big the track is in person. Unlike anything i've ever seen before, The color might not look intimidating but when you pull into the park and see the sheer size of that monster your hearts are going drop.

After most people see the size of it and then see it in action some will need a change of clothes lol. Anyway as many people SFMM has working on X I don't think Vertical construction will take long.

Hopefully testing wont either, so I see a july 4th opening advertisements will go out billing at as SFMM X-treme Independence day blast. The park with be filled to capacity and it will all go down in history.
