    Coaster in Toyota Magazine ad

    I recently was shuffling therough the newest Sports Illustrated( has Brett Favre on the cover), when I saw a roller coaster in a Toyota ad. It has a yellow Arrow batwing, with Toyota cars on the tracks. Witht the background, it looks like Marineland's coaster, but it is brown. I'm wondering if the track color was airbrushed or if a background was added. Anyone here have a clue?

    I saw Millennium Force and a few other coasters in a Mazda ad once. IT was actually a magazine or something, rating the top 5 or 10 coasters.

    I saw that Toyota add too (on the back cover of Entertainment Weekly about 3 weeks ago).

    If you look in the background, you can see desert mountains and a piece of orange hyper coaster...it's Viper at SFMM, but the color has been changed. It took me a minute to figure it out, but the bit of Goliath track in the background gave it away. I have almost the same picture that I took while I was in the que for X (of course there were no Toyotas on the track).

    I have the ad at home, and if you ask me I think it looks more like The Great American Scream Macine at Sixflags great Adventure, becuase if you look tord your left you can see the two blue, and red towers of The Chiller, but maybe im wrong, I know the mountains, and sky where all part of some good graphics work, I showed it to my graphics teacher, and he said we are going to use it in a project.

    Well, I've also seen this picture. If you look at the bottom right corner of track, you can see that the steps or track is red (can't remember now) which led me to believe that it's either GASM or Viper, not sure which of the two though. I don't really remember much else about the pic though.

    Can't be GASM boss. For the last few years Space Shuttle was parked right behind the GASM Batwing. From that angle you would also see the big white domed warehouse nearby that's now going to be part of Superman's que. Those things would be difficult to take out the pic I think.

    You can do amazing things with computers now. It wouldnt be impossible to get those things out of the picture and put in mountains.

    Damn!

    My issue doesn't have that ad in it. Just the typical stupid car ads with trucks ascending mountain peaks and crap like that.

    You're sure its the Brett Favre one? "True Grit", right?

    It is very easy to erase anything oin the backround such as the space shuttle, and dome which will house Superman's line. It is even easyer to do it when you created ur own landscape.

    It's even easier just to leave the background as it is...that's why they used Viper at SFMM. They Photoshopped out all of the other rides in the background (except for one piece of Goliath) and left the desert mountains. With the right angle, there wasn't even much to take out.
