The first few pieces of track arrived at Six Flags Magic Mountain this week for their upcoming 2013 Full Throttle roller coaster. They are still busy transforming the area of the park that it will eventually be built, but at least the pieces will already be here waiting when they are ready for them.
The pieces are being stored in the overflow parking lot, on the opposite side of Feedmill Road from their main parking lot. These overflow lots are not needed during the offseason, so it’s a good place to store them for now. The first piece is half straight and half curved. It’s hard to tell if this will be part of the top of the loop, with another piece of track to be mounted on top of it, or if it’s just upside down with regular support mount points:
The second and third pieces are completely straight:
Judging by the extra brackets on these two pieces, I’m guessing they’re either a part of a launch section or a brake run, or possibly both if it’s part of the tunnel section:
There’s a good sized forklift sitting in that lot as well to unload other pieces as they arrive:
