My take on this, from riding the other night, is that while those hops absolutely feel like they're trying to chuck you off the train, they are still more "comfortable" than the ones at the end up Lightning Run, Lightning Rod, or Storm Chaser.

I actually thought they felt *exactly* the same as the ones on Lightning Run, Rod, and Storm Chaser.


I think what I'm trying to communicate is that they "felt" the same, as in what your experience was (the violent tossing forward, as if to eject you), but that the restraint was more comfortable, for whatever reason. That was my impression at least.

Honestly, I have to agree with DILinator, from my experience. Not sure if it's the restraints, or more aligned airtime hills vs. off-kilter, but the final hills of Vengeance did feel more comfortable to me (while still delivering killer airtime).

Of course everyone's experience is different, so I guess we'll see how other people feel once more people get rides on it.
