Shockwave: So ****ing good. As always. It was hot and we didn't want to wait so we went in the middle, and the guy I was with greyed out on the double loop and had standing airtime throughout.
This makes me even more disappointed that Shock Wave spited me at Six Flags Over Texas, even after going back to check on it three times throughout my 4-hour visit on a rainy day. To be honest, I was looking forward to it even more than New Texas Giant! I'm very eccentric about classic coasters, Schwarzkopfs in particular, and I love intense rides; from what I've heard, Shock Wave pulls 5.9G's! The most G force I've experienced on a coaster would be Mindbender at Galaxyland, another underrated Schwarzkopf, with 5.5Gs - so Shock Wave would be a step up from that. I dream that if I ever get the chance to return to Six Flags Over Texas, I'll take a ride on Shock Wave.
