Thanks! I was shooting for something a little more unique than enVy
, and I think I did it. The station was another different
idea that I got back in March, having the ride launch into the aptly named "genetic plasma"
that breaks apart to release iDNA
so it may run it's course. Its meant to be awkward, twisted, bent, abnormal, and eccentric, seeing as every person's DNA is twisted and bent to create the person that they are. It may be considered "sharp", yes, but I guarantee you that no one would get hurt on it while near it or on the ride.
The plasma was designed to start within the station and flow to create this huge mass at the beginning of the ride, as well as having it be found at the base of the first drop, on the bridge, at the ride entrance, and on the final inversion. I wanted to have the plasma be shooting off of the ride and spiraling around it to simulate not only DNA's shape and structure, but also to, symbolically speaking, have the rider's "DNA" fly off of the ride. It was a cool idea that I got, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out!

I have to say that this ride is one of the most fun I've ever done. I'm usually very serious when it comes to releasing a ride, but this one was much different than the ones in the Creation Phase
. I had a blast creating the layout (in a record time of under 10 minutes), constructing all of the supports, intertwining the track with genetic plasma
, and even filming and editing the video.
I really think that this video is the best editing that I have ever done! I had been dreaming about editing the video since March, with images of the ride twitching and stopping while the music blasted and colors swirled. The video for iDNA
is probably the most visually entertaining video to watch, as well as the most quirky and eccentric. It was so exciting to finally put it out!
Overall, I really hope that you enjoy this one. It was the most obvious way to kick start the DNA Phase
with the aptly named ride iDNA
, and I hope that you'll Experience Your Sequence
with as much energy and fun as I did mine. There are 8 more rides to come, so get ready to delve into my DNA a little more in the coming months. This month I hope (crossing my fingers!) to finish up another ride and release it, and then have number #3/#12 come in September. For now, here's a little sneak peek when something goes wrong in my DNA...When something in your DNA goes horribly wrong,
it becomes like nothing else in the world...Embrace the Change-griffonj2022
