Originally called Terminator Salvation, after the movie, this $10 million Great Coasters International Inc. wooden coaster features a loading station "fly-thru" as well as on-board sound and mist tunnels.

Six Flags eliminated the on-ride audio from the coaster and stripped the Terminator references in 2010.

I love this ride. It's just so fun! - Nick Mitchell

Best Six Flags woodie ever! - Dylan Salada

This is a very fun coaster. I love the tunnels and fire effects! The only thing that stunk was that the mist wasn't on. Pretty rough but not as rough as Colossus( thank goodness). Four out of five stars. - Super Sam

How does a wooden coaster move so fast?? This one is a barn burner. Lots of fun. - Sylvain Comeau

When it first was released as Terminator: Salvation, It was a beast and the videos added a good storyline to it. Now the apocalypse video pre show is so lame it takes away from the ride and make the line longer. But besides this it is not that bad of a ride, If its really empty you can walk straight through the preshow (Thank God)and go straight to the ride. I love rides that dip first before dropping. This is oersonally the smoothest wooden coaster I've been on. Going through each bank turn pulls you side to side in your seat, and I love how the train goes through the station. It scares almost every first rider of this ride. All in all its an awesome ride. - Josh Hunt

Wow... underrated ride. The woodie isn't the tallest, fastest, or record breaking, but the ride is fast, furious, and most of all fun. The woodie is SOOOO smooth. Please make a stop here before you go on Deja Vu or Riddler. The only complant for me is the queue line. STOP ADVERTISING ME AND MOVE THE LINE. Your theme is ruined when I have to listen to Plain White Ts while looking at it. Still, the ride itself earns it a 9. Yay! - Timothy Nguyen
