Considerably more intense than than Silver Star with some great floating airtime.It does have a bit of a B&M rattle though, and having assigned seating sucks -- especially when front row is basically reserved for those on the top of the line express pass.
Is it a number one? No. Is it the new best hyper in Europe? Depends on whether you like Expedition GeForce or not.
My thoughts exactly. I am especially concerned about the first row express issue.
When you went was Shambhala on 2 or 3 trains? I have seen it just once run 3 trains, and they were stacking all the time and some times even double-stacking...
BTW, I haven't noticed the B&M rattle you're talking about. Perhaps you caught a train with a bad wheel or something but I have had smooth-glass rides on Shambhala...
It was running two trains and for the most part not stacking.
As regards rattle, I rode six times, so unless I was really unlucky it has a B&M rattle. I didn't get a front (not willing to pay thirty euro for a single front seat ride, thanks) so I can't comment beyond that.

Rattle on Shambhala? that definitely doesn't exist. Is the smoothest ride of the park, thousands and thousands of people, and myself can corroborate it. I think it's a paranoya to find fails on a ride that is almost perfect.
^LOL! Yeah, I mean, I get it...think about it this way, if the Australians got the World's WORST B&M, they would still think it was god's gift to humanity because there's nothing else to compare it to and it would still probably be in the top three coasters in the country. But these places like Spain and France that are so close (or even have similar) awesome rides, I don't understand the 'sugar coating' going on.

It is the smoothest ride in the park. In my original post I noted that it had great airtime, and it does; I liked it a lot. But don't try telling me it doesn't have a B&M rattle; it does. If it didn't I'd have ridden more. As it was, I ended up with a mild headache after a few rides in a short period.

Just for the record, I'm one of those singing the praises of OzIris, and I'm not a local. I'm going to get back there at some point in the not too distant future to validate my theory that something changed on OzIris between when the ECC was there (end-April) and when TPR was there; my bet remains wheel compound.
^For what it's worth I do believe you about the ride not having a rattle when it opened...I just find that even more disappointing and I don't know whether to blame B&M (which seems to be introducing their rattle earlier and earlier) or the park.
