Why would that be a surprise though? Once the ride is built the ride is adjusted to hit design perimeters. If the ride is going too fast, that is why they reduced the speed of the lift, added trims, changed wheel compounds, etc...

 

Just normal when they run rides for the first times. Then its tweak time to hit target speeds and whatever else they have in mind.

Nobody said they were surprised, not sure where you're coming from.

So are they running it consistently with the slower lift? I asked this a while back and someone said that it was just the new train or something like that, but considering that the POV was just shot yesterday and they're still running it slower, I'm assuming that's the case.

I think the point he was making was that the train was moving slower through the course because it was the newer of the two trains.

With the slower lift speed, does anyone think the drop will be better than El Toro?

 

I think this depends on each individuals' opinion and likes. I personally like Intimidator 305's lift/drop because you fly over the crest very quickly. I definitely don't think Intimidator 305 would be as thrilling if the lift hill was slower.

They'll probably be very similar. You've got a 180 foot drop at 76 degrees versus a 200 foot drop at 80 degrees. Similar dimensions there, in terms of how tight the crest and pullout have to be. El Toro has the longer train, so that might help a bit. But regardless this is gonna be an awesome drop, close to if not on par with one like El Toro!

As someone said, El Toro's drops reaches its maximum angle much quicker, which I think will make it better. But, as someone also said, Skyrush's drop will still be magnificent. Also, how many more variations of "the lift looks slower than I thought but the ride will still be fun!" can we make?

^ Um, how about no more variations? I think that sounds like a fantastic idea!

 

I don't know about you guys, but I kind of dislike reading the same thing over and over.

About the lift speed do we know for sure when this POV was made. In this test video from 5/19 the lift appeared to be going full speed again while in the previous few testing videos the lift was slower.

 

 

Isn't it possible the POV was made earlier and just not posted until today. Doesn't really matter either way though.

No I didn't.

 

Worse than getting totally trolled is not "taking the shame" and admitting you got totally trolled.

And worse yet is getting banned for a month for being a jackass about it.

^I think the POV was shot recently since you can see the mini-trims in the video.

 

Trims were in the video I posted too. I guess we will have to wait and see to know for sure how they are going to run the lift.
