Americacoasters.com has reviewed Thrillshot - the newest creation from S&S. Located at Six Flags Magic Mountain, Thrillshot fits in perfectly with the parks description as an "Xtreme Park."

That mug looks scary 300ft just sitting on like a horse saddle.

You know what would be really cool, but probably would never happen, is that you could use the supports of 3 launch rides in a triangle or square,(Like Power Tower) you could use those to hold this up and you could have three rides in one. (Space Shot, Turbo Drop, and Thrill Shot)

I went to SFMM yesterday and rode this beast of a ride. I gotta say it was pretty worth the 18 bucks for 2 rides. I don't know if this happened to our good friends at ACN but when I rode it, the acceleration was so fast that it made drool come out of my mouth. I was sorta embarrassed by it although I don't think anyone noticed. Great ride!! :)

.. I got to spend the last 3 days with Stan Checketts, CEO and president of S&S Power at Cedar Point as they tested VertiGo. CP's version of this (which, I was told by S&S that CP got the ptototype that was originally set up in Utah) and got to test ride for 2 hours yesterday before it went public (big thanks to Dick Kinzel, CEO of Cedar Fair). This ride is NUTS...
I'm going ot be posting a VERY long and drawn out report about the ride, what's in R&D as far as the ride goes for improvements and some of the conversations I had with Stan and his crew over at Coasterbuzz's sister site www.guidetothepoint.com
