One of my all-time favorites. Just really well composed, and the fact that there is only one vertical-ish dive actually makes it that much better in my opinion.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

I think you're right. I would think I would remember seeing another curved chain lift because they don't come up often.

Hopefully, Knightmare gets relocated somewhere, it looks like a really nice Schwarzkopf coaster and it would be sad to see it scrapped.

Is this ride an exact copy of Jetline at Grona Lund or is there a difference in track layout? The two seem almost identical to me.

I think Japan has one that has a couple of turns on the lift that is probably made by Meisho/Senyo. I could be wrong, just remembered seeing it somewhere.

^ kind of different as this one has an airtime hill after the first big turn and Jet Line has a twist.

It could be a really fun coaster, could be better if they take the mountain from Japan. Schwarzkopf is GREAT!

I love donkeys more than me.

Looks to be another great Schwarzkopf, but then again, when is there not one? (Revolution doesn't deserve to be treated the way it's treated.)

I'm a little bummed that I had a chance to ride this back in 2005 and didn't.

I loved this ride. It gets pretty intense near the end with the tight turns and rather quick transitions. I always check it's still there when I drive north on the M6. I hope somewhere buys it. Maybe it could do well at Lightwater.

It's sad that a coaster that looks as fun as this one didn't seem to be taken care of well by the park. Then again, that applies to over half of six flags' coasters.
