Yesterday was Media Day for the amazing new ride RailBlazer at California's Great America. I'm still trying to wrap my head around what an amazing event it was. Thanks to California's Great America not only for inviting us out, but for building RailBlazer.
I'm also still trying to wrap my head around how much I absolutely LOVED RailBlazer. Because I really did love it. It's just a very fun and unique ride.

First let's start off with some videos, the first being me making a fool out of myself on the Reverse POV.
Note: We also took some Reverse POV in the back row but are having some issues (old SD card). Going to try and recover it but it's not looking good. Stay Tuned!!
And of course, the actual RailBlazer POV!!
Lastly, some of the most amazing B-Roll footage I've seen from any park on any ride. It's seriously amazing and you should all watch this. Like a lot. =)
Let's get on with the Media Day Festivities!!
Good Morning CGA!!
Why Hello There!!
It was a perfect morning
Some pics of the ride in motion, be sure to click through the slide show
Test Seat!! I didn't have any issues with the leg room. The shoulders are a bit snug, but not too bad.
More pics of the ride in motion. Honestly enjoyed taking pics of this ride so much!!
As you can see, those in attendance were having a blast!
It's just beautiful to look at
Oh yeah, they fed us, and fed us well. Sausage Wrapped in Funnel Cake Batter was a favorite.
The new stage looks great, food festivals in this area are going to be awesome.
Berserker and Whitewater Falls also got some new signs and landscaping!!
Merchandising, Merchandising, Merchandising!!
RailBlazer the T-shirt. RailBlazer the Water Bottle. RailBlazer the Hat. RailBlazer the Teddy Bear.
RailBlazer the Magnet. RailBlazer the Keychain.
Quick shout out to Flight Deck. Happy 25th!!
Now back to our regularly scheduled ride pics!!
And of course, the opening ceremonies complete with fireworks!!!
We had such a great time at the park, RailBlazer is amazing. I think we were all happy with it and almost kind of shocked at how much we totally loved the ride. It's probably in my top 20. It's THAT good.
Hope you all enjoyed!!
