Six Flags 2013 new attraction video

The first time I heard of YOLO was watching the video and first impressions were that it was a catchy slogan. But I'm so un-hip, I had no idea it was a common phrase that cam from somewhere else. I do think its a bad idea for any company to latch on to a trendy phrase because its can be associated with a certain type of person and they have a very short time span before they move into the lame and dated category.

YOLO is the new EXTREME:

Something about Jim Reid-Anderson reminds me of Christopher Walken as Max Shreck in Batman Returns, so watching him glorify the used Boomerang that St. Louis is getting is especially awesome.

If they do a nice refurb and put the new vekoma trains on it, I'll actually be looking forward to riding it on my next visit.

I didn't realize Vekoma had new trains until we rode Carolina Cobra at Carowinds. Very impressed. Similar design to B&Ms new restraints. Wish all Vekomas would get them. No more head-bashing!

Which, in all fairness to Vekoma- was, and is incredibly over-exaggerated to begin with.

Does anyone know where the Boomerang is coming from or is it new? Seems like there are too many out there right now to NOT buy used.

Its a hand me down from Six Flags Over Texas. It will be 24 years old next spring.

Are you MAN ENOUGH to ride this ride ?
