Lack of airtime moments isn't an issue if those moments are excellent. Skyrush only has 6(?) moments but each one is exceptional.
We won't know until it's ridden. Not getting on the hype train just yet.
Like others, I still think we've been shafted for length, the apparent trims in the...
There is no chance TT2 will be better than the original, those hydraulic launches are significantly better than any other launch system, even if they are unreliable.
Some may prefer the S&S air launches but I'm yet to experience one that trumps the hydraulic.
These things are one trick ponies...
I heard on the radio recently that there's a lack of engineers in the industry currently, you would likely be able to get some good advice from local parks on the best routes to that career path, obviously sling all the manufacturers an email as well.
Not always, Rob's example is where it's a detriment, but generally I find I prefer the family owned parks as they seem to care about guest satisfaction more, just for example;
Paultons is, imo, the best theme park in the UK, it's lacking that one big headline coaster but as park operations and...
Too many to count, and I cba to do Howie's approach.
There are some people like @Hixee who may have the exact number tho, proper goon right there.
Again, Wildfire's stall is the best inversion I've encountered.
I think it's carrying too much speed plus that shaking looks awful. If the ride is unbearable from a comfort perspective then good on them for deciding to fix the root cause.
And no, that doesn't mean rebuilding it from a better manufacturer ;)
@Hixee is doing a grand job on the main TR so I'll just add minor things.
Found St Paul to be a decent regional park, a couple of relatively substantial creds plus wood express, which is infinitely re-rideable. They really are the perfect family/teen coaster. The log flume there is really well...
King was ****ing horrendous.
I can manage a bad few corners but the **** that came after the mcbr is up there with being tied down by a midget and whipped with a anchor chain.
**** that, never again.
Hopefully that sums up my thoughts on the matter.
First thought was Nemesis as well, and while it does hold a hugely special place in my heart, 0 belongs to another.
It was the first world class coaster I'd ridden abroad, my 48th cred, and all I could think about for the rest of that trip was the one ride I had on the yellow beast...
We had the discussion this weekend gone.
Personally no. There are three reasons why I would could a full retrack;
All of the track being replaced in one go. Not the case here as lift, station and brakes are not being replaced.
Significant change to layout/ride experience. It's the same ride...
