Really “shocked” we didn’t see a train reveal/feature from the S&S booth at IAPAA this year.

Me too. I was really hoping for something. Maybe we'll see more information at No Coaster Con

We will. But we’re def being outshined by Steel Curtain. Was just hoping to see them promoting both. I think It’s a huge deal for them to have two of the biggest headlining coasters of 2019.

^ I hope Maxx Force's trains look as cool or even better than Steel Curtain's.

I’m hoping for one red/black train & one yellow/black. I’m thinkin that would be sleek. But I’m sure they’re both gonna be red. I’m so frickin excited about this ride regardless of it somehow flipping us upside down 5 times in 24seconds.

You all saw how cool Steel Curtain's trains were I think ours will be better in capacity and looks. Steel Curtain will only have 2 trains and Maxx Force will most likely only have 2 trains but look at this.
Image
Steel Curtain's trains are 2 per row. Well remember this picture below.
Image
These trains are 4 across so maybe if these are Maxx Force's trains they will be 4 across and have lap bars!!! Also in the first picture look behind the train. There is some lovely Maxx Force track behind it.
1.) Steel Vengeance 2.) Maverick 3.) Goliath (SFGAM) 4.) Top Thrill Dragster 5.) Mystic Timbers
Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

The Maxx Force trains are 2 across and will have a race car theme like in the animation. The trains will be very similar to the ones that were on Ring Racer.

Let’s hope this ride has more success than RR did!

Animations aren't always right. Look at Goliath or Twisted Cyclone. Sometime manufacturers make changes to the design. So you never know.

They don't change the train design from the animation. That train in the picture is heading to an Asian park.

This is one of the pictures I took yesterday... couldn't get much closer as there was a police officer near the track, keeping people away. I wasn't going to push my luck.
Been to may theme parks, in many countries. However, SFGAm is my home park and I love it!

Are there footers in the ground yet for the coaster? I remember the photos of the metal casings for the footers but have they actually poured any of the footers yet?

Wishing there was or will be somewhere to watch this thing launch. I’m sure it wouldn’t be the TTD grandstands but something along those lines would be nice.

I'm hoping it'll be visible from the line or from the exit path/ramp.

Thanks! Wow, this is so informative considering the speculation on this forum last August. I thought for sure the launch would head into the Pictorium site, then to hear all of the accommodations for the narrow track of land and for the train. And now we know it will begin to brake halfway through the dive loop, but that's the element the designer himself seems most interested in. Thanks Static Shadows.
