It's extra enjoyable when they do it as a competition between the left and right sides of the audience.
I'm sick to f**king death of the "we need your help!" / new recruit storyline with dark rides and simulators.
Panic Coaster Back Daaan at Tokyo Dome?
It leaves forwards, arrives back at the station, takes the same track backwards and ends up in the station in the forward-facing position again. Some kind of switch track thing.
I really haven't been keeping up with China's theme park construction (or any for that matter) since there's zero prospect of going at the moment, so I did a quick search to see how legitimate it was, and it's all official. There was a launch ceremony in the summer, so it's...
1. Superman The Ride - SFNE: It's been a very long time since I rode it, but it was easily one of the best coasters I'd ridden up to that point and, seeing as I still love a good Intamin hyper, I can still see it being excellent.
2. Superman El Ultimo Escape - Six Flags Mexico: A huge surprise...
At Disneyland, I skip Iron Man on most visits now. It's just not a massively rerideable thing and I sometimes get off feeling a bit nauseous. There's also a bunch of stuff I've never ridden (Dumbo, Carousel, Orbitron) which are definitely iconic Disney staples, but I don't really see as major...
1. Intamin. Even the ones that don't rate highly are still decent rides. Stronger airtime and more variety than B&M.
2. B&M. You know what you're getting which, apart from a couple of turkeys, are excellent coasters.
I mean, that's it really isn't it?
I adore a couple of Morgan's coasters...
Backwards launch up a spike? Love it.
Shuttle loop/boomerang? Fine. Like it just as much as the forward bit, which is still not much in most cases.
Retrofitted? If it's not Hollywood Dream (where the backwards train is MUCH better), no thank you.
It's a bit of a slog. Despite meaning to read at least the first book for years now, I've never got around to it and have never seen any previous iterations of film/TV versions.
It's a bit of a weird one in that it really dragged on and seemed full of empty space in parts, but at the same...
We used to get one in the traveling fair that popped up a couple of times a year.
It only lasted a couple of minutes. I think there were some crappy cardboard cutouts in the first bit, but it mostly consisted of a dark tunnel where someone would run their hand over your head.
