  1. Here's the only photo I took with my phone. I've been excited, but after seeing this in person I'm absolutely amazed that Adventureland is building this. I never thought I'd see the day where they had a big time ride. More to come tomorrow when I have a chance to upload the rest of my photos.

     

     

     

    That looks incredible!! I will miss the log flume. Have great memories on that ride as a kid. However, never in my lifetime would I imagine Adventureland to get this major of a ride. If anything I would have expected much smaller. This really put them on the map this year. Can't wait to be back. It has been a good 10 years.

  2. Six Flags America had a teaser banner up in the water park the day it opened for a kiddie splash structure. Just something to keep in mind.

     

    Also, this is nothing like what Cedar Point did in 2015 for Valravn. That tipped off completely being a coaster with the wording and talk and the coaster legacy. This banner just says something will be added next year. That's it.

     

    With banners up this early, maybe it could be that coaster OR could it be the possibility of adding more then one attraction? This would give a little more reason to advertise this early, just a thought?

  3. If it ended before the helix/overbank, people would complain that it hits the brakes with way too much speed and they under utilized the coaster's potential.

     

     

    I think my issue with the layout (and this is coming from someone who's only seen a video) isn't so much that is has a slower finale, slow finales can be fine. The problem I see is that the final little overbank seems extremely out of place in such a low-speed setting. It's obvious they thought this thing was going to be taking that final section at a much higher speed.

     

    I have to agree with you. I have not ridden the ride. However, visually it looks out of place. In every video on and off it even gives off the feel of it being out of palace.

     

    With that stated, I do love slower elements of rides. I feel they can provide interesting sensations. I can only speak for the looks. I have heard mainly "awkward" feels toward the end. What are some other thoughts?

  4. Question for all season pass holders. I know I am not crazy, but I remember Cedar Point introducing a website that you would log into for savings outside of cedar point. Such as movies and shopping. However I can't remember that website. Can anyone help??

    Thank you!

     

    Yeah, that's still there, but you can't do things like buy Legoland or Vegas show tickets on it any more. Which is a bummer, because they were a great deal.

     

    That is a bummer. Because that was the coolest. Getting Amc movie tickets had a good discount. National touring show discounts as well. Shoot. Maybe they will come out with something like that again.

  5. That is to bad about the ending. I have noticed that awkwardness in the videos but did not think it would be negative.

     

    You know when you start to fall over to the side, and you start jumping to that side to correct yourself? That's what it feels like the ride is doing.

     

    Do you feel this is the "biggest surprise" for 2016 or will that go to Monster at Adventurleand or Lighting Rod?

     

    I'll put it this way. I'm trying to make the trip out to Adventureland this summer. Had we not been invited for media day, I probably wouldn't have done the same for KK.

     

    Thank you for your input. That feeling is going to personally be very interesting to deal with. Very few coasters I have ridden have done that to me. This may put a wrench in it being in my top 10.

     

    I wish I could be at Adventureland for media day/opening. That is my true home park and they have not opening anything major like this in years!! So excited for them!

  6. What is your favorite part of this ride?

     

    The first drop in the back seat is something else. It starts off with a little bit of hangtime, but once the train gets some speed it just throws you spinning down.

     

    The corked roll is really cool too, it's a legitimate zero-g roll, where you're between the seat and the lap bar the whole time. And the first airtime hill is really good, and the first two overbanks are great. Most of the ride is pretty fantastic, except for the end. The end sucks.

     

    It's a little hard to see in the reverse POV, but the last double down has that weird airtime that throws you forward more than out of your seat and you come crashing down on the restraint. There's also that last overbank, which is just really, really, really awkward. In a not so good way.

     

    Don't get me wrong, SC is an amazing ride, it's just that after the first half of the Twist and Shout, it loses a looooot of momentum.

     

    Easily one of the best things about this coaster is the placement of the on-ride photo. Finally someone put it on an airtime hill, and the results are perfect.

    sorry if that wasn't coherent purdue is really far away and we've been driving all day

     

    That is to bad about the ending. I have noticed that awkwardness in the videos but did not think it would be negative.

     

    However, from everything else it appears to be an amazing ride. Do you feel this is the "biggest surprise" for 2016 or will that go to Monster at Adventurleand or Lighting Rod?

     

    Loooove that photo! The fact that they put it where they did! It will make me get one!

    If you found that (I might have posted about it too, IDK), you broke the matrix and the machines had to cobble together a hole to fix it. They closed that exploit around February.

     

    Perfect! Thank you for the good laugh!

  8. Here's the link to the video:

    Not much is shown. Kind of funny to watch the workers push it off of the track at the top. Also, later in the video, it shows the elevator lifts moving at full speed with no train on them. They can move pretty fast. So don't think that the speed they are moving at the beginning of the video is their full speed.

     

    This is so exciting to watch! I know it is not much, but it is still cool. Thank you for sharing!

     

    Has there been more details about the que lines? What specially are they doing? I heard it was going to be a snake exhibit, correct me if I am wrong.

  9. Today I had the chance to stop in for a quick visit to see the latest progress on Mako, which if you haven't heard just completed installation of the last track segment! Work continues on installing the ride's brakes, nets and theming the surrounding areas. The ride station is gaining new detail by the day and it looks like the ride could start testing within the next few weeks.

     

    Thank you so much for this update! I am loving this coaster, it is looking like a great ride. Can't wait to ride it, it may become one of my favorites! They really thought about how the ride looks through the park! Does anyone know how long it normally takes to install nets and other electrical lines?
