Track and supports for Scream continue to arrive on site at Magic Mountain

Posted Monday, January 20, 2003 3:52 AM | Contributed by xbombman

Scream construction continues to progress at a rapid rate. Many more track segments and supports have been moved into the construction site.

Also, most of the ride's footers have been poured while support structures have been assembled.

So can anyone look into their crystal ball and tell me when this sucker will be ready to give rides?

Koppman -

This isn't a prototype. So your witty comment isn't going to work with this one. ;)

Is it just me, or am I like the only one that's even excited about Scream?

I'm honestly not very excited about Scream. I'm blase about most B & M's anyways (except for their inverts and hypers) and this ride looks to be a virtual clone of things I've already ridden in Northern Cal., New Jersey, Ohio, and Florida. Other than the Zero-G roll and SFMW Medusa's first drop, there's nothing really remarkable about any of the floorless coasters I've been on.

On the other hand, I think it's a good choice for SFMM. It will get people in the park and take some of the load off of X and Deja. It should also run high capacity and problem-free.

Now, for the next coaster, could SFMM please combine the words "300+ feet", "Intamin", and "airtime"? For a park with (arguably) 16 coasters, the airtime moments in the park can be counted on one hand.

I would say it rounds out their package very nicely. A modern quasi-traditional looper is perfect for that park.

I think you hit it on the head Jeff. I'd put Scream in the same category as Wicked Twister. It will spread out visitors to a dead area of the park, giving them large steel coasters in each of the four corners of the park. It's also ride ride that bridge them into what's coming in 2004.

Like all of the SFMM's B&Ms, I'm sure Scream! will be a huge hit with the GP, which is exactly what the park wants. The ride will definitely do to Colossus County Fair what Deja Vu did to Cyclone Bay.

Looking great. I can't figure out what the long beam with wheels are for in this pic; http://www.americacoasters.com/SFMMConstruction/jan18/07.php

At first I thought it might be for a launched lift hill like the Hulk then dismissed this as the wheels aren't rubber & in the right configuration.

That is for the roll-over from the "storage shed" for the trains to the transfer track.

I know I'm being overly picky but I really wish they would have spent a few extra $$ and had that ashphalt torn up. Yuck!

Just a note guys... the latest word is that the ride has gone vertical! I'm curious to see how much will be completed by the weekend.
