Those curving white things on each side of the seat. Not shoulder harnesses?


Nope, those are just the sides of the vehicle.

Good. Glad it is only lap and shin restraints.

Praying to get off a 20 second ride would be saying something. You'd probably have to start while you're still in the station.

I really like the look of the trains. I'm going to assume there's going to be a seatbelt as well in addition to the lapbar and shin guards. The front (zero car I think it's called) looks cool too! Crossing my fingers they'll test it soon :)

TTD freaks people out. I've seen people begging to get out of its train. Maxx Force will be AT LEAST as intense as Dragster.

I can't see it taking them that long to complete the station. I am sure they are using basic materials that can go up pretty quickly.

I hope to go to the park later in the afternoon to see the progress of the station and queue. I'll report back if there's anything new.

Anyone know how long the minimum interval is between cycles? For example, V2 needs to wait 2 minutes. I'm wondering if ALL air cylinders are used EACH launch, or does it need only half and the other half are used the next launch? I'm wondering how long it takes to recharge those cylinders after a launch

I just love the look of the trains so much! I really hope it is 16 per train rather than 12 per train.

Probably no testing within the next week. The weather is gonna be really bad and electric doesn’t look complete yet.

I'd think they would want to have this think testing ASAP, especially with this being Memorial day weekend. Should be one of their first big crowd weekends of the year and what better way to generate hype and make people want to "upgrade" to those memberships/passes than a shiny new coaster zooming through the track waiting to be opened.

in my opinion as a marketing professional, I'd do everything I could to make sure that thing is testing this weekend.
Maxx Force will be my 50th

I agree with you! Whet people's appetites this weekend and they'll definitely want to return soon!

LOL! yeah, they wear those lanyards around their necks like it's a backstage pass to see the band Rush or U2 :)

I just can't wait to see all of the before and after photos of what everything used to look like before Maxx and after construction is over. Here's a comparison photo of Pictorium's sign and soon to be Maxx's. These aren't my photos. :)Image

Can you confirm 2 or 3 cars per train?

Should be a zero car and 4 passenger cars with 4 seats each per train. I believe the previous photos by Condor were only showing the first train.
