Check out this awesome promo video from Mack. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIdJtQ3dMtw

Pay close attention as you can see the SDC Time Traveler car featured under construction. :)

Seeing it in the physical and not as a CGI rendering I am much more optimistic on the theming and stylization of this ride. I just hope the rest of the station building is done on this level of detail. I am impressed nonetheless. :)

Speaking of, I just saw this on the MACK Rides FB Page. Looks like we likely got one of the Time Traveler cars in transit here.

Here are my photos from the ACE Coaster Christmas event at SDC yesterday. For SDC/Time Traveler it was a mini recap of the media announcement followed by another construction site tour.

Went to the park over the weekend, without being redundant since everyone has pretty much covered the station area and entrance work, I went ahead and got more photos of the layout as seen from the Culinary School. You can see the overbanked turns, inversions, and the launches thru the trees.

Its actually a really awesome park, more than just a flatter SDC clone. I look at it as a perfect blend of SDC with bits of Celebration City an Six Flags sprinkled in.

Album from my August trip (first time as well) is here: https://www.facebook.com/sgtmyers88/media_set?set=a.10155775332892232.1073741875.503502231&type=3

Anyone got any ideas what the crowd estimates will be for this weekend? I prefer Sunday but due to potential weather issues I might have to settle for Saturday which I normally avoid.

I wouldn't mind it at SDC if it is kept towards the back corners of the park or more ideally at Firemans Landing or Grand Expo.

Its gone save for the station. Still no news on what will replace it.

I think the station is the only thing left to watch at this point, so I wouldn't go to much more trouble than getting a couple shots from TNT's queue or the porch.

Still a lot of time left for them to dress the station and surrounding area up. I'm curious to see how much effort they'll put into the exterior. They don't often disappoint, and Fireman's Landing had a lot of great little details so they still know how to do it.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I actually like the look of the station. I just hope they paint the railing of the exit platform because the plain wood doesn't look good against the gray/white station. Either way, the look of the station really doesn't matter. The people who care what the station looks like will go to the park anyway, and others only care about the ride. I'm sure we'll see a lot of theming inside the station where people will actually spend time waiting.

I am just hoping they wont cheap out on the theming. Kinda worried they spent all the money on the ride itself, granted its probably still too early but I was kinda hoping they would have elaborated a bit more in terms of how well it will be themed during the unveiling. That huge multi-story building has to be for something more than a station and queue line but the simulation depicting it looked kinda bland. I would love to see something interactive in the queue or some kind of show segment in the likes of Baron 1898 or Blue Fire. I will be happy and settle if its at least themed inside the building on the same level as Wildfire. It is unfortunate most of Wildfire's stuff gets overlooked since there's never a line for it now but I used to love reading all the schematics and such on the walls.

So I'll be the first to say it.  I hate the color of the station.  I hope that's not the finished product.

I guess I expected more of a brown/earthtone color for some reason..... BUT lots of time left ofr additional changes....... 

LOL, maybe the greenish color is the primer coat ::)

Kinda turned off by the aesthetic developments too. One can only hope its just primer but I fear its not. Just looked at the simulation again and its spot on to the final color.

I think it would be plausible to reuse the tower for another ride/attraction. They would probably have to strip the wood off and take it down to the steel frame but it would be worth it I think.
