My legs just got a little weak.
From the Orion thread:It’s steeper...by one degree
Looks like steepness only matters when it's at Kings IslandPlus it's 85 degrees, which is the steepest of any of the B&M gigas.
You mean just like your homepark did with Orion?like BGT only begrudgingly built this to shut up all the fans.
I find it truly hilarious that you, of all people, are criticising this ride for "not being unique".A little bit confused by all the hype on this ride. Doesn’t look to do anything new or particularly innovative. Just a bunch of turns and a few rolls. The drop is the tallest...by like a foot. It’s steeper...by one degree. It’ll be fun, but nothing mind-blowing. Just a lazy design from RMC and Busch Gardens, like BGT only begrudgingly built this to shut up all the fans. I’m sure if Gwazi was totally demolished, something super unique could have been built instead. Doesn’t even use the dueling feature. The ride looks good but not great.
I wouldn't necessarily say "mistakes". Are there really any? It's probably more that the existing structure wasn't up for the expected forces (possibly even more so given the wood sat there rotting in the Florida heat for the best part of four years).Anyway, it's interesting to see just how much of the ride is being reinforced with steel supports. They have obviously learned from their previous mistakes.
