I know I am getting so stoked for this ride. I can't wait for the free fall sensation. And the view will be ridiculous. :DD

I think everything about the ride will be ridiculous. The height, speed, sensation - it will be totally over the top.

I 100% agree with you Tom everything about Lex Luther will be completely over the top. I have dreamed since the ride was first installed at SFMM for the cars to be turned around and some kind of free fall down the side of the tower and this dream has come true. The only thing is I think Lex Luther for me will remain only ridden in my dreams/nightmares lol, not sure yet still building my courage up for this one in real life.

Anyways SFMM has a Lex Luther construction page now http://www.sixflags.com/magicMountain/rides/LexLuthorDropOfDoomConstruction.aspx#

Thanks for sharing the SFMM pics Robert. This is the first ride I know of that has used a helicopter in the construction. I guess it's cheaper than bringing in a 500 foot crane, and suspect they are working on the top and bottom first, and fill the rest of the ride from the top of the tower. Has SFMM said how much this ride will cost?

I don't know if it's something I've made up in my head or did I read somewhere that it was costing between 5 and 7 million dollars to add Lex Luther. I'll have to do some research to confirm this.

Well that's a great value <$10 million for a world record ride.

That's a really good video Chris, thanks for posting it. If you use the "post reply" button instead of the "quick reply' you can imbed the video into the thread, which is what I did below.

Interesting, I did that and some type of error popped out Neutral Oh well, I'll see if this problem persists again in the future...

Here's another pic courtesy of The Coaster Guy


Track has been added to both sides of one side of the tower, they are wasting no time on this thing. Also is it just me or just seeing the track on the side of S:EFK like that just make it more real on how terrifying this thing is going to be Shocked

It's not you, I feel the same way on how fast this is progressing. Thank you very much for the pics - and this certainly is going to be a terrifying ride. What's the progress on the other side?

Far as I know Tom the other side still only has one side of the track installed, but I have no idea what time of day this pic was taken so it could have had a piece or two installed since this pic was taken.
