Take a ride on the legendary Loch Ness Monster roller coaster!  

Whenever I see people lined up to ride an SLC, this comes to mind.  

Holy crap, you just brought back 20-year-old memories!  Back in 2000 my dad and I were in line and asked the guy assigning rows for the front row.  He warned us about the bugs without even thinking ab

Slightly upset that there's no trademark Robb Alvey On-Ride Commentary on this one.

 

Beautifully shot, though.

 

I've watched enough TPR videos over the years, that I can easily add the :

 

"wheeee. . . owwwww. . wheee. .uh. . uh. . . owwwww!"

 

 

myself

 

 

yeah, agreed, beautifully shot, and a gorgeous day for filming too!

I put my child on the ride and didn't feel like a terrible mother afterward so it has definitely improved!

This actually makes me hopeful for a decent ride when I go back. I wish I had a picture of the hip bruise I suffered on my last one.

Wow. After all these years of OUCH PAIN OMG on this coaster, that's amazing, really!

I might get down there, myself, some day/year/2nd lifetime.

Fantastic video, as always. I’ve driven through Vegas more times than I can count, yet I still haven’t ridden this coaster. The high price plus terrible reviews has kept me far away, but after hearing that it is *slightly* tolerable now might make me finally bite the bullet one of these days.

Great video! The colors and views are amazing.

 

We managed to ride (3?) times in a row without dying. Certainly not as bad as it used to be, and maybe only 2-3 spots where there was a significant jolt. Yeah the shoulder bars are slightly annoying, but who knows maybe their insurance company requires them (this is America after all) and I found if you pull them down realllly tight so they are snug they really weren't that bad!

 

Plus after you ride you can just treat yourself to an amazing buffet and forget it!

Thanks once again for a 4K POV . . .

 

And how do you think Montu ranks among the B&M Inverts?

Still one of the best ones out there...

 

Montu, Pyrenees, Katun, Raptor, Batman, Dueling Dragons, Nemesis... Those earlier ones still have an intensity that the later ones don't have.

I don't know. Seems to me like Dragon Challenge has lost a lot of its intensity recently.

Great video! Is there a park with a better collection of high quality steel coasters than Busch Gardens Tampa? I'm struggling to think of any...

I have always said that BGT's collection is "Quality over Quantity" as they don't have a bad ride in the mix! In fact closing Gwazi actually IMPROVED their overall quality of coasters!

This made me laugh and cry at the same time.

I'm not going to argue with that one! I rode Gwazi once in 2014 and that was more than enough! My friend somehow liked it and went to ride it a second time, but that was without me...

We keep getting more and more requests for dark rides, so here's a kind of obscure one based on the Italian Winx Club cartoon series at Rainbow Magicland:

^ My, my. That was extremely obscure, Robb. Thanks for posting it.

 

Loved the "full and lush" nymphs (?) that somehow ended up in your face

as you passed by, lol. Subtle.

 

Makes me kind of, already know what the Italian Winx Club is all about, hmm?
