I actually just got back! Not sure if I'll be writing a trip report for it or not, but I did have a wonderful time!

Sorry to keep dragging this thread off-topic, but if you rode it, was my number 1 coaster running well?

Anyway, I can't quite update this list yet, but I should have a new opening year ride in the form of Icon at BPB in August.

I was only able to get one ride on it, but I thought it was very nice. Not overly amazing, but it's probably going in my Top 20. I just need to sort out my list and update everything!

Brilliant stuff! Thank you @GuyWithAStick! I'll presume it's still running just as well as it was when I rode in August 2016, then!

Shame you only got one ride, it always seems to have a quiet queue. I managed 8 rides. Actually, my impressions after my first ride were that it was my least favorite B&M hyper, but after many more rides I fell in love with it.

...sorry to rub it in. :p
