Awesome TR! I rode Bizarro as soon as it opened to the public & loved it. I got on it twice before the big crowds realized it was opened.

I was shocked when the entire queue including the old abandoned part of the queue was filled! Haven't seen that in years; it is a odd thing to see!

I would have loved to be at something like this but even if I was invited I would have had to take the day off of work and I'm going on vacation in about 2 weeks to Cedar Point so it's all good.

 

Looks like it was fun though again I seemed to have missed a ride opportunity with Big Mike(though I wasn't invited to this in the first place so I didn't really miss anything). All joking aside the ride revamp looks great and I'm looking forward to riding most likely after my vacation since I don't know if I'll make it there before then.

 

I have a question though how loud is the audio and what is the audio? Just curious because I've seen trip reports for this media day and SFNE and no one has revealed what the audio is, is it music or talking? Just curious.

 

Also I love the color scheme by far! Purple and blue are my favorite colors! I also hope they keep these effects working, they are quite awesome!

Wow, that looks horrible.

 

Im sure the onboard audio/fire make the ride a lot better but I was expecting more than just re-painting all of Medusa's old "theming" to make it look strange and adding some cutouts. I thought X2 was a great re-do because it really needed new and better designed trains plus the sensory experience tied in with trying to make the ride more cutting edge/terrifying etc. The Bizarro transformations just look forced and cheap IMO.

 

Edit: Just listened the album version of the onboard also and must say its pretty creative/sleek. The rides "theming" still is really tacky though

OMG I want to punch that woman in the head! She would not stop screaming, and all I wanted to hear was the onboard music!

 

Does anyone have a POV with just the music?

 

Yeah I tried watching it for the same thing and got annoyed at the screaming too.

 

While the new effects are cool and all the one thing that kind of annoys me is that I may not get to ride *Medusa* again till probably september since I refuse to wait longer than 30 minutes for a revamped old ride. Unless I happen to get there before opening and push my way there but again why am I fighting to a ride a revamped ride? Plus the whole Kingda Ka being down doesn't sound like it will help the situation any, hope they get that running again soon I haven't even ridden it yet this season and I've been there about 4 times last month.

I rode Bizzaro on Friday 5/22/09 and was not impressed. The B&M roar makes it almost impossible to hear the sound/talking while the ride is moving, and the volume of the chant / music from the brakes to the station is almost deafening. The GP getting off the ride seemed unimpressed.

That is basically same impression I had today after riding it.

I was also there today, No wait at all for any of the rides. I was rather surprised by the ride. It was done better than I expected, and I bet the ride will be really fun once the park is open after dark. But the consequence of this sound system, is that it makes the ride completely not re-ride-able. It may be okay if you ride it during the same day, but coming off the ride and back on. I rode it 3 times in a row, and already the voices were getting annoying. "Am i taking crazy pills" was one of the lines that was getting annoying and the ending line.

I also think the fire effect is a complete waste, you really have to look for it to see it, But again, it my potentially be awesome at night.

I would also like to know if this counts as a new credit because after all, every ride operator has been saying to ride the "all new" Bizarro.

^From what I have been hearing and you can kind of tell, the experience from day and night is completely different. I heard at night, from the lasers on the S-Shields "Freeze Vision", the fire effect, the Auger Lighting up, and etc, it is just a totally different ride.
