What a day to be super busy at work. Just catching up on all this. Awesome, Robb, to get a shout out from the park. Love the offride video too.

I would say I can't believe people are already complaining about this, but after 6 years on a theme park forum...I can. I totally can.

^I've been on TPR for 3 months and I already expect it.

It looks like an incredibly fun ride, not super intense, yet still disorienting and crazy enough to make it something that I would ride over and over again... super pumped to ride it!

and what I find so amusing are those complaining about how "slow" it looks.

I hear that comment a LOT while at Fiesta Texas in line for Poltergeist. . . trust me, that ride does *not* feel slow, you can't judge it from a video, or off-ride viewing.

I'll bet this thing is hella fun, and can't wait to someday ride it.

Yeah man, Poltergeist is awesome. I'm sure most of these people complaining will like Time Traveler once they've given it a chance. Usually works like that, and it just makes the complaints that much stupider.

I think the small amount of people complaining that it's slow are doing so because they wanted a more thrilling ride which is NOT what SDC wants. They're a family park first, and the ride has to at least appeal to a goodly amount of people. The spinning is already going to put people off, but the slower controlled nature of the ride may make more people comfortable with riding.

Also, it was in the 30's this morning while all of this filming was happening...the ride could certainly speed up during the summer!

Based on Robb's POV in twitter feed, the speed actually looks perfect. . perfect speed for the spinning, and the spinning during the launch??

wow.

looks so good.

Its clear to me how few people commenting here have been on Cobra’s Curse. The slow parts were some of the best parts; the overbanks allow for some awesome hangtime facing downwards. I myself am really excited for the overbanks on this ride as they’re massively tall (especially the one after the second launch) and they’re taken very slowly.

Count me in with those happy its not super spinny, even though I won't be @ this park anytime soon. The coolest thing about this is that you'll get a different ride every single time, and there's lots of opportunities for interesting sensations.

I think it looks awesome! Thanks Robb for the excellent coverage!

And I have to say just how completely and totally surprised I am that roller coaster enthusiasts are complaining that it doesn't look fast/intense enough. :lmao: :lol: :lmao: :lol: :lmao: :lol: :p

I've never been on Cobra's Curse, but Monster at Adventureland in Iowa also takes some of its elements very slowly, and it really adds to the experience! I like that this doesn't spin as much, so a wider variety of people can enjoy it without having to worry about losing their lunch.

I had reservations about the concept, but Time Traveler just looks great. I love the trains, unique experiences every time, original layout, and even the controlled spin, which should allow a Dramamine user like me to enjoy this some day. Awesome! It looks like Mack and SDC have a hit. Great coverage and POVs, Robb!
