So this trip was all about Velocicoaster and Iron Gwazi. But going in, I knew Mine Blower was quite the polarizing coaster and that usually means I'll like it. Verdict: OMFG! Is it rough? Absolutely. Is it one of the best and most insane wooden coasters on Earth? Also absolutely! Don't ever leave without riding it in back.

Also, the Hurricane coaster in the back of Old Town might be one of the more frightening coasters I've ridden. It's so janky and the cars feel like they might fly off on any of those tight mouse style turns. What a bizarre coaster, but fun nonetheless!

I did stop at FSO earlier and White Lightning is good pure fun! Nothing mind blowing (or...mine blowing if I do say so myself) but worth stopping in.

Fun Fact:  That coaster in Old Town is the same exact type that took a bath in the Atlantic after Seaside Heights got hit by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.  A fitting name, eh?

I never rode the Star Jet in Seaside, and the Old Town rides were closed during my Orlando visit in 2021, but yeah if you check the Casino Pier thread you'll find nothing but celebration that the Star Jet was destroyed.

More power to you for enjoying Mine Blower.  I found it unbearable in either the front or back.  I found White Lighting to be the vastly superior Fun Spot coaster, so much that it made my Top 5 Hybrids, ahead of some RMCs.

Did I miss something? I know they put Titan track on a very very small portion of the ride (1 hill?) for testing/proof of concept; did they end up doing more/all of the ride or is that why you consider it Hybrid? Just curious. I'd imagine hearing more about it if they transformed any more of it. I do agree it's a fantastic ride but I rode it when it first opened.

It has a metal structure; with it being painted white it can be hard to tell from a distance.  I rode it before any of the Titan track was installed.
