Sad to hear this ride doesn't live up to its hype. Visually it is definately a site to behold and gives Montu a run for its money on themeing. At the end of the day however, it's all about the ride experience itself.
I rode it last saturday - two times.. One in the morning and one around parc closing.. Total queuetime for these two runs: 3 hours...
Experience First Run:
Summary: custom SLC with barely any forces. Weird headbanging in the first drop and a very slow ride experience. I think it was about on-par with vampire in walibi belgium.
Experience around parc Closing:
My absolute #1. Awesome ride, forceful, epic rolls, nice forceful turns. Totally awesome and #1 new ride for this year in my opinion (behold, I only did 2 2012 coasters so far: dragonfly and Oz Iris)..
Asterix / B&M has a big issue to fix, this can't be right..
