When I saw that neon at the park I thought it was a worker lol. He couldn't snap a pic because the only view was from the lift hill on Goliath; but the ground was very level around it and looked very nice.

I'm still trying to figure out how in the Hail does S:EFK and especially Lex Luther fit into the moderate thrills category Shocked

I'm not worried about the supports looking like that on Lex Luther lol but I do wonder if they are planing on painting the side structure red.

That caught my eye too, since being 400 feet in the air is certainly more than a moderate thrill. Then I thought about G forces and assumed they are basing their rating on the math.

I'm not sure I'll go on it. If it were a launch, no problem. But I hate sitting at the top of those things waiting to get dropped. LOVE the drop, but the anticipation and height scare the crap out of me.

I'm scared to ride after the Intamin accident. They have the video of a test run and the restraints clearly fly open on the free fall.... REALLY creepy......

That was a scarey video no doubt, which means the seat belt wasn't attached, while the park was found at fault for their maintenance of the ride as I recall. I hear ya though, at 400 feet, you don't need a mechanical issue no doubt. But I'll probably be dragged on the ride when I do finally get out there cheers

This is one ride that I think, no not think, it WILL BE! way to much for little ol me lol. I would literally have to be put on this thing completely unaware and blind folded or else I would come off needing a diaper and a defibrillator!!! I can handle any coaster you throw at me but me and drop rides do not get along at all!!!

Also was I the only one hoping that it was taking so long to get the ride parts for LEX was b/c Intamin was planning on shipping LEX and the 2013 ride parts all in one huge shipment...I guess to much wishful thinking on my part Wink

^ Like I've said, I might go but there's a super slight chance.

Besides that lets see this update video, the ride is said to open May 18, but at this rate, it looks like Mid June...

I'll be representing ALT since TPR should already have someone going.... but My chances of going might be a little higher which is both good and bad for me.... Good because I will be nice representing ALT but bad because I might pee my pants on LL:DoD Neutral

Galindover (Chris?) I know ALT would be honored to have you represent and cover any of the parks on the West Coasts. Please keep Brandon in the loop on any of your park visits, since he's the site's PR Director and communicates with Lance for Screamscape mentions. I know if you file or post a trip report or construction report on ALT, Brandon will give you full credit as he promotes the site. Welcome to the forum.

Chris, you should coordinate that with Brandon, since he has some experience reaching out to parks for press credentials. If ALT can get them, I know we'd love to have you, Robert, and Knotts cover the event. We're also looking for trip and construction reports, so anything you can share or provide (pics/vids) is always appreciated, since it helps the site grow.

Sounds Awesome, I just have to confirm if I could go or not and I'll ask Brandon to reach with SFMM. Thanks for the heads up thom25!

Hey guys,
So Chris, I didn't know you would actually call to see for media day I wasn't sure how private it was. If you go for ALT I can go for another site or represent ALT too. If you are looking for coverage of California parks, Chris and I could cover SFMM (I live an hour away) and of course being such a fan of Knott's, I can cover there. I actually have a trip report from 3/21/12 I can post, but where should I? It was not really an extensive PTR, just pictures of the rides for the Knott's Network page.

Hey Knotts, not to get off topic here, but since you get to Knotts regularly, considering that it's right down the street from Disneyland, are you going to also cover those parks as well? DCA will be opening up Carsland this summer which will be a big thing just so you know.

I will cover DCA and Disneyland as much as I can, but I can't get a pass because of price so I can't go as regularly Sad I have a ticket to DCA but it expires on June 1, 15 days before Cars Land opens fml. I can cover it as much as I can though. To be honest, I go to SFMM more but I will get as many Knott's trips in as I can. Knott's doesn't change nearly as much as SFMM lol. As for Knott's, I will try and go this summer, then for Halloween Haunt in the fall.

:O That picture just gave me a tingle down my spine.

It's been confirmed I will not go to LL:DoD media day, but I certainly will go to SFMM, just not on media day.

Knott's what other CA parks are you doing? Would you like to PM me so we can perhaps meet up at a park?

Wow, thanks for sharing! It's amazing that a helicopter had to be used because of the ride's height.

Wow awesome! Can't wait! Chris if your not going to media day I probably can't :p but I will try.
Also, we could try and meet up, but I don't have a very flexible schedule this summer. I am going to DCA, SFMM a few more times, Knott's again, hopefully SFDK, and hopefully SFOT!
