Time for a quick West Coast Racers update!!
There is still a LOT of work to be done on this ride, a lot. We have zero idea when it will be ready, maybe September for Fright Fest? While we have ZERO doubt the ride will be awesome when it does indeed open, it doesn't seem like they are any rush. Anyway, some new pics!!

An overview of the Spaghetti Bowl
A bit more done on the back side of the ride vs our last update
Down below, a huge chunk is missing (where the station goes)
This is the extent of it, still quite a bit of track left to go
And we'll leave you with a couple of pics from the Jet Stream queue.
Thanks Stephen for taking the time out of your day to send us some pics!!
Yesterday was Media Day for one of the most anticipated new coaster of 2019, Maxx Force at Six Flags Great America. And from all indications the ride does not disappoint. Spouting a killer launch and elements, the ride is sure to be a wow the crowds.
Let's check out Scott's report.

Yesterday was an exciting day at Six Flags Great America. Maxx Force is a great addition to the park and is just what the park needed in its lineup.
It was a beautiful morning at the park
Still a lot of work to be done before it's unveiling
The 0-78 mph in under two second launch is extremely forceful.
You take the double inversion with a good amount of Speed witch produces a pretty decent amount of positives forces towards the bottom of the second inversion and head chopper element going into the turn.
The worlds fastest inversion speaks for its self. It gives both airtime and positive forces in the same element.
And finally into the final two inversions coming in to the breaks on the way down.
The ride is on the short side but still extremely exciting, the elements keep it going.
Regardless of length it’s a great ride.
I would like to thanks Six Flags Great America and staff for a very fun and well run event.
This ride is a must ride!
Some pics of Maxx Force in action
A closer look at the restraints, there is plenty of room and we didn't see anybody struggling to fit
The train design is pretty awesome too
And of course, there is the Maxx Force Merchandise, at a very reasonable price point.
Thanks for reading, now get out there and ride!!!
