Since no one brought it up at CBuzz, I guess I'll be the first! The lift grade looks very steep. Some major framework for the dual loading stations have gone up as well. Most of the footers look to be completed.
This could possibly be the best decision that Six Flags has ever made.
maybe they used a dual loading station because there are three trains?
With a Lift, a MCBR (it has one, correct?), a single station, and a final brake run, they could still run 3 trains. I don't know what they were thinking, esp. after learning their lession in Georgia. *** Edited 12/5/2005 3:47:06 AM UTC by TeknoScorpion***
Some of you people really need to go back to school [or pay better attention if you're still in school]. What good would a "duel station" be?

If Tatsu's station has two sides it is a DUAL STATION!!!
How is this a good decision on SF's part. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this just another coaster at SFMM (the place with all the coasters that has poor park operations). Sure, Tatsu does look impressive, but building another coaster without doing anything else to the park isn't what I call smart.
I'm not bashing, I'm just comparing the thoughts from the past to the present.
Right, again, perhaps if they upped customer service, painted everything, price it right, and had adequate staffing and opened rides, and more flats, then I'd say 'Good Job SFMM, we'll let you out of the rehab center now'...
If Snyder is serious, and will go foward focusing on family attractions instead of thrillrides, then I think Tatsu was a great way to end things for awhile. Great capacity, cool layout, 4 across seating and a great location. I would have preferred a wooden coaster honestly, but I'll never complain about another B&M near me.
"Best decision" is overstating a bit ;) But SF has made some great "coaster" decisions for next year.
