    I like the "death roll" nickname for this element considering the ride's theme.

    What is your favourite drop tower?

    My first ride on Falcon's Fury scared the living **** out of me, but that was only because of the seat rotation at the top. The drop itself is lackluster so every ride since then has been mediocre. I'll have to go with the majority and say Tower of Terror (Orlando) is my favorite.

    Are Giga coasters worth it?

    Out of curiosity, does anyone know how the general public have reacted to Orion?

    Carowinds | Copperhead Strike | Mack Dual Launch

    I'm impressed by this POV. Pacing, airtime, and transitions look great but the inversions are just kinda there? None of them wow me and they don't seem to provide much for the ride.

    I could have never guessed they'd turn this into such a monster. I just need it in my life now.
