So it seems like Maxx Force won’t be open before 4th of July. SFGAm posted the ERT rides for 4th of July fest and Maxx Force is not listed on any of the four days. Image

Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

Personally, I couldn't care less about some park neighbors whining about the noise. The park has been there since the mid 70s, far longer than most of the residents likely have lived there. If you don't like the noise of an amusement park and all that goes with it, why choose to live there?

Yes full circuit test. We noticed three runs today. The launch is quick but hard to say if it is going full speed yet or not.

Second train is sitting behind Condor.

We heard the boom from the Viper entrance and it’s louder there than on the other side of the ride but it’s really not bad.

Does the second train have different colors like on bull?

Definitely not at full speed yet. There's a video of it running empty and it snakes through the dog tongue much quicker.
The launch needs to be programmed with a little more oomph to compensate for the extra weight of the water dummies.

Definitely. Just wish those white bars were black to match as well. Same with the red car

I can Almost guarantee the rails will be painted. Those are just “raw steel”

They already are painted. They are stainless steel underneath

Thanks for the video update, Rob! After watching this, I'm still having a very hard time believing that the train (scenic railway) will be able to fit between the 2 supports posts, and under the track of Maxx.

I know right? Also, it's interesting the design of the arrangement of the colors is different too. They didn't just copy the other train and flip-flop the colors.
