Official there would be an announcement? Yeah, that was kind of implied.

What are your predictions on the new ride? It will definitely be record breaking from looking at the size of the area of where it's being built.

I wouldn't hold your breath on "record breaking" other than anything that revolves around flyer records, which aren't all that big.

It will be without a doubt be record-breaking. Footer marking stretch from the waterfall plaza near Revolution's loop all the way over to Roaring Rapids.

How hard will it be to be record breaking? The other 3 in the states are clones, and then there's Air.

= lame.

That was the gist of my post, Rob.

The three Superman clones are 106' high and less than 3,000 feet long. Air is 66' high and less than 2,800 feet long. Won't take much to make a record-breaking flyer! ;)

So... it's probably safe to say Tatsu will boast

- tallest
- fastest
- most inversions
- and SFMM coaster with the least amount of asphalt under it? ;)

^ Knowing SFMM, they would find some way to prevent that last qualification from happening. They might add some parking spots/lines under the coaster just to make it fit in! ;)

You're even funnier with your belligerent fanboyism.

Haha! Far from it! What do you know about me anyway? Sure, Magic Mountain does happen to be one of my homeparks, but it is not my favorite park.

I find it amusing that just because I made a statement about how the lame Six Flags or Magic Mountain jokes that are cracked over and over have gotten a bit stale immediately means I'm a fanboy. I see fanboys tend to be of the sort that run around parading how great their park is. I don't do that. I've also sat through my share of good Six Flags bashing and sarcasm without saying anything, and to an extent, it's humorous at times, but some Coasterbuzz members such as yourself really don't know when specified target sarcasm is dead, dried out, DONE, beaten to death.

BREAKING STORY: SFMM-bashing is dead, dried out, beaten-to-death, and DONE.

In Other News: SFMM still sucks, film at 11.

I guess my response would be the same, Krax. Your comment that started it all is basically baiting. I don't see how you could possible disagree.

Flame on, if you must. :/

You guys crack me up. That was far too funny, Robbio.

So who comes up with these coaster names?
+0

Kingda, El Toro, and now Tatsu. It's like the new trend for Six Flags to import names from other languages rather than recycle through eight signature SF coaster names. My theory is Six Flags does not want to share coaster names with any other park chains. There is not a wealth of coaster names that have not already been used. This places a great deal of creative responsibility on C.O.'s for SF, who cares very little about coaster names. My guess is it would make more sense to them if coasters were simply numbered, then building themes around the ride's number. Sesame Street does a good job of that.

On a side note I do have to agree Magic Mountain does get slammed a lot. Do folks really feel it is the worst park in the country? They would be wrong. Is it frustration about how the park is not reaching its potential? I would agree with that. Or are coaster fans angry the park has chosen to add yet another roller coaster? An ironic complaint coming from coaster fans wanting less from a rare, west coast thrill-ride destination.

Ding ding ding, we have a winner. Magic Mountain is the poster child for "we're dirty, poorly operated, poorly maintained, and not very friendly....but we got *another* new rolly coasty"... ;)
