Love the hairtime video and the foggy pictures. Looks like an amazing ride and I can't wait to get back to CP in August (hopefully).

I followed along all day yesterday and I am just so happy we decided to get platinum passes this year. The only question I really have is do those bunny hops coming back to the station feel like the ones on Lightning Run? It looks like they do in the videos.

I got six rides on it yesterday and as of today, have huge bruises on my shins.. If that is any sign of the extremely forceful airtime!... Crazy awesome ride. It's not a ride you can marathon, in fact, most people I spoke with yesterday had about 5-8 laps when you could have easily did double or triple that if you wanted. General consensus was that people needed a break given it's intensity after a ride or two for a bit. Once you go down that first drop, it doesn't let up until it hits that brake run. Even the MCBR you hardly notice as at that point, as you need a minute to brace yourself for the finale sequence which is just insane.

I look forward to hearing what the "GP" reaction will be when they get off this thing... Will be a huge hit, no doubt. Cedar Point got an epic, signature attraction from RMC to the likes of Millennium Force and Maverick, that's for sure!

As far as the bunny hops at the end of the ride, it honestly feels like if you were riding a mechanical bull. It's abrupt ejector air to back in your seat over, and over, and over again very quickly. The best way I can describe it. Out of control.

Out of curiosity how many trains were running yesterday? One would think that MCBR would be noticeable if all 3 trains where on course. But what do I know?

Awesome coverage of an amazing new coaster! Those seat belts are similar to Twisted Timbers seat belts.

This is definitely the year for me to finally make the drive and visit Cedar point. Steel Vengeance looks amazing, and the reviews confirm that!
