They say the ride is going to put you in the middle of a battle between John Connor and the robots...Really?? Cause the only thing it looks like its going to put me in is a roller coaster car going around a wooden track...I think this is the lamest attempt at a "themed coaster" Ive ever seen...there is no hints of the Terminator at all...Cant they just call it "Our New Wooden Coaster"? It would all be the same story and theme wise...It is just another terrible attempt to draw attention to a very plain coaster by naming it after Terminator...and the sad thing is, it'll probably work
I was just using this topic as a forum to complain about almost all Six Flags Coasters, which tease by using names such as Batman, Superman, and the Terminator for their coasters, but end up having no references to those franchises other than the ride's marquee....they are just coasters....and yes, occasionaly its fun to just have a good time experiencing as much thrill as possible, but most of the time, if Im going to shell out money for a theme park, I'd like some theme and story to go with my thrill please
But naming it Terminator is AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!Nothing about the Terminator franchise says wood!!!! I wish the people with the right to the Terminator franchise would have had more sense that get involved in anything with SF.
Escpecially when you compare it to a true classic Terminator attraction on T23d which is older(which IMHO is easily the best 3d attraction), but will have cost far more to build and will be superior to this new coaster.
When I imagine Terminator, I'm thinking future, metal, computers, and liquid mercury that rolls together to form a robot that can change his shape into other people.
On the plus side, I am looking forward to riding this coaster. Ever since they removed Psyclone, I've been wanting another wooden coaster at SFMM.
The next woodie change at SFMM needs to be removing the MCB on Colossus and returning it to its original design.
