With Kingda Ka, the launch isn't scary, IMO SR's launch is alot scarier

 

 

Wouldn't you feel 0-72 mph in 2 seconds? less then 0-128 mph is 3.5 seconds? It's much faster. Should I try it? Will I like it? What do you think. I want to do it but I dont. I am a chicken. Is it awesome and ride that you will want to go on over and over.

That’s correct. If you’re in the state for less than 24 hours you’re perfectly in compliance with the quarantine but be warned that if you’re there for 24 hours and one second you’re not and you’ll be

Soooo late last night I was tumbling down a Youtube coaster rabbit hole and came across this video of a review of El Toro (I know we're not supposed to link to certain channels but for the sake of thi

Just came back from a visit here. I chose this day specifically because it was a weekday during the magic time between fright fest and HITP where the whole park is open but there are no special holida

The launch is intense and the first time I tried the coaster I had to rest for a few minutes and one ride was enough for me. Next time I was at the park I rode it twice and now have ridden up to 4 times in 1 trip.

 

I suggest trying it once right at opening without a line so you board the ride right away and don't have time to think about it. The ride is over so fast too which helps.

I've been on I guess the top three Intamin rockets in America (KK, TTD, and SR) and I rank their launches as follows:

 

1. SR- It's not really the intensity. The intensity is there but it is more evident in the others. What gets you is that voice. It freaks me out every time.

2. KK- Fast but shaky. Also, it is very noticeable that at the end of the launch it dies down A LOT and like someone else sed its really like a gradual growth while SR is right from the start.

3. TTD- Bleh

There's nothing to be afraid of on KK's launch. The line was so long I was only able to ride it once during my last visit but I thought it was great. If you can handle Volcano and Flight of Fear, KK shouldn't be a problem. You won't notice the difference.

As a little random topic, does/is Kingda Ka supposed to go over the top hat this fast?

I think that's one of the worst POV's I've seen in some time. I think the speed is about right, especially if the trains before this one were heavier, the ride would launch faster, plus, the camera shaking doesn't really help in making any determination.

Green Lantern Update:

Recently Flying Phil went on another one of his flyovers and something strange popped up. There are 4 white pieces of track that are apparently for the corkscrews that will remain that way. Weird? I was told there would be surprises in the ride, but this is just puzzling. What do you guys think?

I know white is actually a big part of the Green Lantern if you read the Brightest Day and Blackest Night. Anyway Green Lantern I believe is going to be awesome.

 

This is based off of the film, however, and the villain of the film is Parallax. Necron and the Entity, if they ever do appear in a Green Lantern movie, are most likely a long ways away.

how about it just snowed and the pieces are coated with snow?

I love your logic!

 

Hopefully all the footers are poured and that they can get this ride up during the Winter! If not, they'll have to wait till the snow melts.

That wouldn't make any sense, 4 pieces out of all the track pieces magically stay covered in snow while the rest don't..

Some of the pictures make them look white other make them look coated in snow. All of the pieces are being repainted and if the paint was fresh the snow would stick to it as we have not seen these pieces before. And besides it could just be a primer that they will paint later. I wont believe it until trains start running.
