For you Shockwave fans, I took this photo of a Shockwave car from Gurnee earlier this month at Six Flags Magic Mountain:

Even though I never rode Shock Wave I would rather still have that rather than Superman Ultimate Flight. Superman is a really boring ride.

Aww that's a sad sight with the fading paint and broken trim.

Also found your Psyclone site photos interesting...

I completely agree with you Yankee Clipper! i never rode it either (because back when they first built it I was a fickle 16 year old and it scared me silly). But it was a visually beautiful ride to watch, I could have sat there and watched it run for hours.
