  1. It's not even that big of a difference. I didn't even notice the lift slow down the first time I rode it this season, and I was looking for it!


    It still throws you over the first drop and hauls ass through the ride as it did before. It might be a tad slower, but I couldn't really tell.


    I did find that it was a little slow in the morning. But I'm pretty sure the 58 degree temperature had something to do with that... Later in the day it was flying!

  2. One time I was at Dollywood. It was pretty hot and I didn't really drink a lot before hand. I decided to ride Tornado.


    That thing was flying! As the train went through the first loop, I noticed it was a tad more forceful than usual. Then we got to the second loop and I started greying out.


    From that ride, I don't remember anything from the third loop to the brake run. It was fantastic haha.

  3. Wait... What other B&Ms run backwards?

    So far Great America announced Batman backwards, and Thorpe Park just gave a clue that one of their coasters will run backwards. We are assuming its Nemesis or Swarm.


    Interesting. I wonder how B&M is doing this. I see two possibilities:


    1. Turn the whole train around so the lead car is on the back of the trains' forward motion. The is how PTC did it. My concern is that this would screw up the way the train steers through the track. (Arrow did reverse trailering, and we all know how their rides run! Yes, I know the gaps are the primary cause, but still.)


    2. The more likely solution: Simply turn the seats around on each car.

  4. I was there in August of this year. The ride staff was awesome, but elsewhere service was lackluster. Batwing and Joker's Jinx look terrible, Superman's trains are rusting, they act like Tower of Doom is the tallest drop tower on God's green earth, and the overall park layout sucks. Don't even get me started on the train ride that takes you past the old locomotive that they let sit and rot, and all the facilities backstage that appear to be falling apart. Not to mention that the cars are rusting out and I wasn't all that confident on the wooden bench I was sitting on (rotting wood.) And the new major attraction in how many years is a 25 year old mediocre stand-up coaster? Please, there are plenty of reasons for me to not visit this place.


    I love how TPR skipped it on the New Hotness tour LOL!
