I am happy to tell you that Bizarro has officially started testing as of today.
We are the first, and currently only, Great Adventure fan site to bring you these photos.
Bizarro has had at least two confirmed successful test runs this afternoon.
This, however, does not mean the ride will be opened anytime soon and is still set to open at the end of next month.

Amanda, one of our administrators here on the site, was lucky enough to be by Bizarro as it began testing.
All photos of testing were taken by her.

But why are we telling you this? Because we now know what the trains look like!
-The back row only has two seats. The guts of the sound system is located in the middle of those seats.
-The train looks completely redone. I'm not sure they are the same trains.
-The seats look to be slightly tilted. May be my eyes though.
-The restrains look to be reconfigured. They look larger (not typical B&M style).
-It just don't look like a normal B&M train, not even close.
-Yellow, blue, and purple are the colors of the train.
-There was somebody riding, probably maintenance or park supervisor.

The speakers are on the sides of the train rather than on the headrest which alot of people speculated. Still should be cool. They better be loud! lol.

Yeah. They are a lot like the placement of X2's speakers. Which I heard weren't that loud =/
We will have to wait and see.

I don't think the back is a different color. Though it would be pretty cool if it was....Hey! I can now type without looking yay!

That stinks its on the the sides of each row rather than the headrest if that's true. I was hoping for them to be like S:RoS on the headrests blasting in your ears.

I am also dissapointed the sound system isn't on the way we expected, but I still think it's pretty cool that we have something a little different from the other Bizarro, & I think we're in for a great show come late May.

I took one from the Ferris Wheel at about 3:30. Then I went to the ride at about 5:15 and luckily saw a guy in the op booth giving the signal to cycle it. I ripped out the camera and got 8 more shots (some of which you see there). The better quality versions will be posted shortly.

Overall today I personally saw about 4 cycles, all completed successfully. Josh informed me via text that it was testing earlier, but I didn't see it myself. Judging by how things are going, it should be opening right on schedule.

Props to Amanda for being there and getting those shots.

They are freaking awesome.

Why do we need a video? It's simply the same ride, with a different train.
Pictures are better because you can see the train better :P
