  1. My friend and I were able to ride it on Sunday, the day after it premiered. Dispatch times were absolutely atrocious! Taking anywhere between 10-20min. The line, where it would normally be a 20-30min wait, was taking 2+hours. Minding you, it wasn't a busy day at the park, with the longest line standby being about 20min. I'm very thankful we invested in a Platinum Flash Pass, we were able to get multiple rides on Superman this way, with absolutely no wait for the front row. No one wanted to ride in the front, because everyone wanted to try the VR after they waited so long. My review of the VR... first experience, it didn't work. I had video until half way up the lift, then my phone turned black. So I basically rode with a blindfold on. Second time, it worked. The video was cool. Superman himself was hugely out of proportion (Why is he as tall as a 4 story building?) In the right seat, you're Wonder Woman, complete with a nice rack; on the left, you're Batman. The "inversion" during the second twisting camel back was more disorienting than anything. Also, the drop, with the VR on, felt like it was 10ft tall. There were times where the video would also "pull" forward, because it became out of sync with the ride, creating a little bit of nausea for me. There was nothing in the video to designate getting wet from the mist on the ride, or being inside of tunnels, so the temperature change and suddenly being wet was kind of... strange. I wish they put a fountain or a water tower breaking... something at least to show you're gonna get wet. Final verdict for me, I thought the ride was actually BETTER without the VR. I hope they get the kinks fixed soon, or else it's going to be a 6hr wait during 4th of July weekend.
  2. Water slide pieces for Volcano Bay caught fire today... Hope this doesn't put construction behind schedule. http://www.clickorlando.com/news/fire-burns-near-wet-n-wild-in-orlando
  3. Someone on Reddit figured out that if you modify the coaster nodes after building a drop/element, you can manipulate them even more to get sharper angles.
  4. From the latest "Dev Video" they released almost two weeks ago via their Facebook, and immediately taken down after tons of negative comments flooded in. The coaster was called "Canyon Runner" I believe. You can find the video on YouTube still.
  5. I guess the guests don't have to sit in their seats... Damn though, it just seems to show that the devs don't even care about the game.
  6. Hi, and welcome to the first public *ALPHA* edition of the game. The game is in it's first stages, and isn't even in Beta. I'm sure your complaints will be fixed. But seriously... it's been less than a week. RCTW had what... a *BETA*. And it was garbage. Think about it for a minute.
  7. The game is out for Alpha. There are plenty of people streaming the game using Twitch. It looks AMAZING!
  8. I'm sure most of the newer slides (Disco H2O, Brain Wash, the mat racers that replaced Bubba Tub) are going to be moved to Volcano Bay, rethemed and repurposed. Slides like Mach 5, The Storm, Black Hole, and Bombay... Probably going to be scrapped. Pointless thread... Should've been part of the "Wet n' Wild" thread that already exists. Also... How the hell are you gonna move a Wave Pool and Lazy River? Lmao
  9. While this addition sounds great for the park, and also, much needed (another family coaster)... I'm just hoping Busch learned from it's mistakes with Gwazi. Also, I know Gwazi was built in FL, and the humidity may have had something to do with the "quick" deterioration of the ride... but it was also built by GCI... (I know, a very early GCI ride). Gwazi ran FANTASTICALLY during it's first two years of operation, providing great airtime and lateral G's, but as years went on, it just seemed that BGT didn't put enough effort in to maintaining it. Hopefully they'll do well to maintain the new ride at BGW, so it doesn't become a rough POS in the next 4 years.
  10. Jab at RCTW? Or are you saying that the flat rides in this game aren't realistic?
  11. Wow, this coming from the #1 RCTW fanboy. I think the world may have just stopped...
  12. Lol, this kid. Anyway. Yeah. No way this could be worse than Goliath at SFGAm. Looks fantastic, and as others have said, if Lightning Rod wasn't being built, this would easily be the most anticipated coaster of the year.
