Yes, but not for the public. It was Advocate Day (Buyout). I think tomorrow is too, but I might be wrong

^Maybe, but I'd doubt they would want to place themselves into such a competitive environment. It's the same reason they're not entering the Floridian Market- too much competition.

Six Flags PR has just proven they don't understand basic physics, when they posted this in the new pass holder announcements:
"Why You Need to Ride Raging Bull in the Front Row
Where you sit on a coaster can affect your ride experience. Our guests told us Raging Bull is more extreme when you sit in the front row. As you approach the top of the giant lift hill, the front car will slowly creep over the hill for a moment of heart-pumping anticipation before plummeting down.

The weight of the rear cars will push the front riders down, making your drops feel heavier and faster than the 73 miles per hour you're actually going."

First off, we all already know that front seat on Trimming Bull is extreme as changing lanes on the highway with the windows down when compared to the back row; what is more offensive to me is the second part. The rear cars do not "push" the front car down, the entire train is always travelling and accelerating at the same speed, and if you ignore friction the top speed of the train would be the same with only one car as it is with nine cars. This is due to the same reason that a baseball and bowling ball fall at the same rate near the Earth's surface. The person that wrote this tidbit needs to be placed on the Neutered Bull in the back row with lapbar loose as possible, and we'll see if they learn a thing or two about basic coaster physics.

Or maybe it's a way to get more people to sit in the front row, leaving the back row open for us. :P

Btw, they've been saying that the front is better for a few years now. It's nothing new.

I'm super intrigued at the non-IP character. They had the Mascot for RB for a few years, and now they're adding this.

Also, inb4 'OMG COMPANY SPLIT'
