I rode it and thought it was fun, but once a day was enough. ;)

The Jokers have the three fins along the top like Arashi, I think that Batman at Fiesta Texas is the only one now that has just the one fin at the beginning. But, I'd bet that the pushes forward from the fins are electric / electronic and the park can control how much a car should be flipped as it goes over them. S&S even says that a park can make the experience more or less extreme if they so choose and that the change can be made easily.

Obviously, Nagashima Spa Land went for the more extreme route. I think I'll be staying away from that one.

I think I got 7-8 flips each time I rode it, with most of them during the top section. I found the seats that left the station backwards and did forward flips at the top to be slightly more comfortable since it was pushing me further into my seat instead of throwing me into the restraint, but it was still fun either way.

I didn't think it was "uncomfortable," and I'm not into spinning.

I love the angle from 0:53 to 1:18. It really shows how insane this thing is.
