I've never understood people talking about Viper being rough. While it isn't the smoothest ride ever, you're not exactly leaving with a concussion either.

 

As far as backwards rides, as a kid I road Psyclone backwards. Anybody else here remember doing that?

 

My ears were red for an hour after my last ride on Viper and my head was throbbing and I said never again... Granted, that was probably 6 or 8 years ago, but I have no desire to go back. The trim brakes also kill the whole back half of the ride for me.

 

Geez! I've never had an experience like that on Viper. Every time I go to the park, I end up going on viper twice in a row during night time because the line is always short at that time, and I actually quite enjoy that ride. Yeah, the ride is a little jerky at times, but I haven't really noticed any pain while riding. I guess that might be just me, as I'm one of the few who actually enjoy Green Lantern, and the bumpiness of Ghost Rider.

1) I never proposed that Ninja's years were limited due to one-train operation. I'm perfectly aware of the incident that took place this past summer. I'm just considering the fact that Arrow Suspended coasters are a thing of the 80's, and many others have vanished over the years. It's still a fantastic family coasters and has been rounding up many lines the past several months (although probably due to one train operation).

 

2) I agree, Viper has been known to supply me with some awful rides in the past, but the ride I took a week ago was the smoothest I've ever been on. No headbanging whatsoever, no brakes after the first loop. I mean it hauled A$$. I think Viper and X2 both run smoother in colder weather. Running it backwards was only an idea. In truth, I don't see the park going for "backwards rides" any more. At least not in the immediate future. I had no idea Batman backwards was that bad. I hadn't heard bad reviews about it. Batman forwards is, in my personal opinion, a forceful ride of it's own. I'm probably in the minority, but I prefer Silver Bullet and its spaced out elements better.

I used to love Viper. But I guess that was a long time ago now. lol I never thought it was too rough. But, when I rode Vortex at Banshee Bash this year...wow, that one hurt. I think it was my back that hurt the most, I can't even remember. lol I really just rode so we could get the picture after buying the all day picture pass.

^ We're about the same age. I feel as I get older my tolerance for rough rides lessens. Viper is one that I personally know so well that I can still enjoy it. There are some others that I can't anymore ( SLCs are an automatic skip now), so I guess it's a personal thing.

i do wonder if some of the older rides, if it's because of my tolerance, or because they just haven't been maintained or aged well.

 

what bothered me most the last time i rode viper was the restraint. it seemed much tighter on my shoulders than before, and i'm short, and not that much fatter than before. lol

 

it's still fun though, even a little rough.

Now Batman is a ride I never skip. It's still one of my all time favorite rides. Just not backwards.

 

I personally just do not like going backwards on coasters that were not designed to do so. To me it's just always kind of dumb.

 

Superman is obviously the one exception.

I was in the park (actually on Riddlers Revenge!) when the quake occurred. All the rides were just cycled empty a few times to make sure everything was alright. After that, guests were allowed on no problem.

^ was the park busy today? Planning on heading out tomorrow...

 

It was empty! Not even two lots were full! I walked onto X2 and there was a 10 minute wait for Tatsu. Full Throttle was 25 min or so, and Goliath was 10 minutes. Nothing else was any longer than that other than Batman, which I waited 40 minutes for with 1 train operation.

 

Today will probably be even emptier! Have fun!

Anyone knows which color scheme Scream will receive?

 

Thks

 

 

There's no word yet. That part of the park is supposed to close after tomorrow. Judging by the new/refurbished train pieces under Scream, it appears the colors will be the same.

 

 

It will be announced soon... Along with some other announcments for the other parks..

Any Twisted Colossus updates?

 

Whenever there are updates to it someone will surely post about it within 4 or 6 hours on here, maximum.

 

You can also visit rocky mountain constructions social media accounts or watch that "our mountain" facebok page. Betwen TPR, RMC and that page there's no way you'll ever miss a major update about TC.
