I wanna know when Amanda took those shots cause when I told Josh at 2:30, it was the first time I had seen it.


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.


Hmmm...I wonder how Josh found out it was testing and that the back car was yellow?...He must have some pretty good sources. ;) ^_^

In other news, great photos Amanda. And, what is up with that back row?!? Audio equipment?

Well, I'm convinced.

(paraphrasing for time)
Me: "Bizarro is testing!!!!!"
Josh: "Is it?"
Me: "Yea I'm at BOTW and I just saw it"
Josh: "Really? I was just over there and I didn't see it."
Me: "Believe me it happened."
Josh: "Sure...tell me when then, and describe it."
Me: "It tested about 20 minutes ago and the back of the last car is solid yellow."
Josh: "Sure."
Me: "Whatever. Don't believe me. I know it happened."
Josh: "I believe you dude. It's just I was just over there and didn't see it."
Me: "Yea, I'm so pissed I couldn't get a picture."
Me: "I asked one of the ops and he said they were 'testing the track.'"
Josh: "I'll keep my eye on it."
Me: "K."
Josh: "Your keep you eye on it too."

The End (what happened to the other post asking for me to post this?)

Is there a guy in the back row! If there is I wish I was him!

Also, why are there only 2 seats in the back row? That seems really weird? The trains look AWESOME though I love the new colors!

Or what is up with that two seat row? Tell me that's not gonna have it's own queue like the front. I can't wait to ride that. I wonder if (possibly) that was done with the idea being those two seats would be the front. When it was planned to run backwards.

There is only two seats due to the sound system and battery. They needed a spot for it so I guess the back row was the best location.

Oh yeah, I forgot about how the zero car on X2 has an identical box...idiot. I wonder if ROS needs one/where they will put it.

Here is the video I took with ccrocker58's blackberry... Not the very best quality. We saw it testing from Best of the West while we were eating lunch around 4.

The placement of the speakers worries me now....esspecially since they tried to run the train backwards.

I'm wondering if they figured out that the only place they could install the audio was on the sides.....and seeing as how the volume of the audio on X2 sux!!!!! They came up with the idea of turning the trains backwards so the auio noise would be coming back at you rather than coming out the side and then flying backward.....never really reaching your ears.

Hopefully the audio is good cause if its how I thinkits gonna be and more story-themed dialogue to tie-in to the effects rather than just music.....then if the audio volume sux then its just gonna throw this whole storyline out the window and be a whole mangled mess of fire and other stuff that riders are just gonna be like "oh cool" and never realize why it happened.

I think they tested the backwardness of the trains before they were reconfigured.
For all we know, there may be speakers somewhere else that we just can't see yet.
