Didn’t notice it’s size tbh. My process of riding Nemesis was “ooooh that was good....I reckon there’s another really forceful bit coming up......it’s coming.....it’s coming......it’s co- oh we’re in the brake run”.How can it meander after the first drop when the biggest drop is halfway through?
First.. you actually like Apollos.. then you DARE say the cinnamon bread isn't as good as you've heard?Dollywood was probably my single biggest disappointment. After uncontrollably hoping Lightning Rod would open and hyping it up, it of course remained closed. Thunderhead was first on the loop then (the park is arranged in a loop for those of you who haven’t been). I’d heard very good things about this older woodie, but none of them seemed true (looking back I got one of the first rides so it probably wasn’t warmed up). Next came Mystery Mine, a coaster I thought would be as fun to ride as it is to watch- this is a really satisfying coaster I’ve watched online for years. Instead, the transitions were painful and the inversions were forceless. FireChaser Express? Forceless as well! Heck, even the cinnamon bread isn’t as good as I’ve heard. Of course, there were good parts of this trip too, but without Lightning Rod, I feel that Wild Eagle and Tennessee Tornado don’t carry the park very well. I was also disappointed at the size of the park. The new expansion will do them good.
WHAT?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I thought the biggest blasphemy was the dig at Firechaser Express . If someone were to ask me what the best family coaster in existence is, I'd consider that a nominee.
Of course, I take any comments about rides being forceless as suspect from someone who has Apollo's Chariot for an avatar. *ducks*
Sent from my G3221 using TapatalkJust rode Olympia Looping for the first time today. So many people say it's incredible, intense and all that... Yet I spent the entire time with my hands resting on my lap and feeling pretty disappointed. Even the loops and corner after the first inversion felt meh to me. So sad </3
Hunny.. one day you’ll see that Apollo’s is just another B&M slopfest that really doesn’t do much. But hey, I’m fine with you being wrong. YOU DO YOU BOO.I’m sure the aforementioned blasphemy is mostly due to the fact that the park was so hyped up for me. I’d read about it for years, and it just couldn’t live up to the hype. I mean, FireChaser is good.. great even for a family coaster.. but I knew everything about it. And, the storyline was hard to follow even though I knew it- I felt that I was just “going” forcelessly in and out of some really good theming that went by too fast. The cinnamon bread was good.. but nowhere near the best theme park food I’ve had, which is what a lot of people make it out to be. A good lesson learned. For me, the best parts of the park were little talked about rides like Blazing Fury and Mountain Slidewinders, and some more I’ll leave out.
But one day, when you’re older, you’ll understand the glory of Apollo’s Chariot.
