Get over it man.  You've made your point and we get it; it's silly that this park did not do a Winterfest-lite.  Make the 8 hour drive to KD if you want to experience that, just like all of us with KD

My visit this past weekend was great, even with Saturday being very busy and me missing out on FL until Sunday.    I went into Orion not having followed its construction or watched a POV or even

I went the weekend before last and wasn't going to do any sort of report or review, but with this discussion, I'll throw my hat in the ring. I thought Orion was fantastic.  Millennium Force is th

Watching the POV again, it looks like it will probably reach top speed after the 3rd inversion. After that roll, it drops far down into a valley (which is really deep there terrain wise) so I would guess that's where it will hit it. The last 4 inversions should be taken with some pretty good speed.

Buuut Raptor wasn't forceful when I rode it. I'd rather ride Batman.

 

This is just an insane comment...IMO. A coaster that throws you around as if you were stuffed into a washing machine or dryer for a few minutes doesn't make it a good ride. If Banshee was anything close to Batman I would be saddened.

^Just rode 3 different Batman clones in less than one week, and not one ride was anywhere near like you just described. In fact, I haven't had a single ride on a Batman clone like you just described. I know the majority of the posters on this forum would be beyond thrilled if Banshee had the forces that are on Batman.

 

Oh, and the only thing "insane" about MorganFan's comment, was that he said Raptor wasn't forceful when he rode it.

^I respect your opinion, but I have never had, what I would call, a good ride on a Batman Clone. And to use the word "majority" is saying that you know everyones opinion. I disagree that most people would want Banshee to be like Batman.

^I've never had what I would consider a bad ride or even an average ride on a Batman clone. Every ride I've ever had on a batman clone was fast, intense, forceful and totally awesome.

You're one of the few people that I have heard say that you didn't enjoy the Batman clones. So I would actually disagree with you saying that most people wouldn't want Banshee to be like Batman. I rode B:TR at SFGAdv last month and I would love to see another B&M have forces like the Batman clones do.

I've loved every Batman clone I've ever rode. I'd love for Banshee to have those forces! Everytime my home park's Batman (SFStL) coaster pulls into the breaks my jaw is open and I'm just staring at my friends in amazement, and I've been riding that coaster for 12 years.

I love Batman too. The only other ride in the park that has as many forces is American Thunder with its extreme airtime.

Wish I lived closer, because I loved the barrel roll on X-Flight, so it would work very well on an invert.

Love your logic there

 

But I totally agree, the extended barrel roll looks to be one of the better parts of the ride (not that any of it looks bad).

^ Oh Lord! Lol! Granted, I am hoping the Action Zone does get a re-theme to a dark/creepy area. We have Banshee, Flight Deck could become Bat, Drop Zone could be renamed and repainted as well as Congo Falls and Delirium. I'm just not creative enough to throw out some ideas for those names lol! But I do love the idea. Someone else mentioned it several pages back and thats what got me thinking about it as well. We shall see I guess.

^I feel like Drop Tower: Scream Zone and Delerium could stay the same. Just rename/theme Congo Falls, Invertigo, and Flight Deck (obvious Bat). Can't wait for some serious vertical construction! I try to test ride Windseeker whenever I can to get a peek at the site....

I totally agree, drop tower seems like a roller coaster named roller coaster. But to me, Flight Deck is OK, though I wouldn't be supprised if it was renamed The Bat

^Sure. The poster is saying Drop Tower is as generic a name as a park can use, like naming a rollercoaster Rollercoaster rather than something more creative.

I would love to see a whole new re-theme of Action Zone. IMO it does need one, as others have said it would be nice to see Flight deck get renamed to the bat. A dark theme would be great it would be like Halloween all year round. My favorite Holiday!

That was me. As for the drop tower, maybe we could see the return of the Hellevator?
