I really have to commend them for having the content on their website constantly updated. Not longer than a week ago, there was a different video of the trains testing, but shot amateur-style...which was totally fine by me, it just shows the new management is more engaging with its consumers now and realize how vital it is to maintain a website with fresh and updated content.
Compared to previous Six Flags management...where their individual home park websites would never feature any multimedia content that kept up with progress or construction.
Hopefully the ride tracks better and has better capacity. It is a kick ass ride.
My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.
Changing the paint, trains, and adding some effects (BTW, no more tunnels...they were cut from the project) does not make the ride "all new" and I think this ad campaign is very misleading.
If anyone noticed, if you click on Thomas Town Construction, it says No Value in DCR, anyone knows what this means?
Bolliger/Mabillard for President in '08 NOT Dinn/Summers
I suppose if there ends up being faster loading/unloading and less downtime, it's worth it.
Pass da' sizzrup, bro!
Nope. I'm not visiting any Six Flags parks this year.
Advertising misleading? Surely you jest!
I work in the advertising industry. I know most ads contain hyperbole and spin. But "all new" implies there is "zero old" remaining...and that's just not the case with X2.
In the end will it matter. Perhaps not. IMHO its just not a good idea to risk pissing off a customer. *** Edited 4/20/2008 4:58:18 PM UTC by Mamoosh***

I think it's always sketchy territory for a park to tout improvements to previously flawed rides. I remember KK's Thunderun got a rehab at one point and big yellow banner that said something along the lines of "FASTER! SMOOTHER!" and some other stuff.
Needless to say it was indeed smoother but a "smoother" ride on Thunder Run can still seem pretty rough by GP standards. Lots of people didn't seem to pleased, at least from what I saw. I think it's sometimes better to take the loss, fix the ride, and let the results speak for themselves.
