Hersheypark (HP) Discussion Thread in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted May 30, 2012 At this point I wish the "lapbar hurt my legs" people would just STFU. If you can't handle it, go marathon on Great Bear. Ride it before you act like it won't effect you. The ride is amazing, but it beats your thighs up. Which I don't mind, I can't wait to see the ERT line for this. Yes, how about this: Ride it before you criticize opinions of those who have rode it already. Validate your opinion with actual experience..is that so much to ask that everyone that hasn't taken a few laps step away from the discussion until they have done so? No one so far has said they hated the ride, or the airtime, and no one is a wuss because they felt pain. I guarantee you this ride is like nothing you've been on before. When it was announced, I said I would be happy if this gave half the ride Intimidator 305 delivers, and my expectations were blown away, yes, it's that intense. I love the thing! I proudly call it my favorite ride, even over I-305. It's [surprisingly] a more intense ride in a nicer setting, with more airtime (IMO): with a crazier first drop, multiple wild ejector moments, and trains more open than any coaster I've ever ridden. But also can't ignore feeling sore after a few laps. Pardon me if I agree that the restraint pads cause discomfort after a few rides, because that's what it felt like to me. Now if you ride it and come out of it with a different opinion, that's fine. But watching people who haven't obviously taken even on lap onthe ride beat up on a minor criticism is just ridiculous. More so than arguing over trimming 0.6 mph- I wonder how those rides felt. All of my rides have so far been in row 7 and 8, right wing. That twisted camelback is insane from those seats..
