I hated both at one point. But ever since I started pushing my shoulders into the OSTR on stand-ups, I've started liking them.

I'm going to have to do that next time. I've always loved rides on Riddler's but my last visit last year I couldn't stand it. Both my friend and I complained about the head banging and we both have multiple earrings which I probably didn't have on my previous visits. It was pretty painful as we kept getting stabbed by them. I'll have to push my shoulders up like you suggested next time.

Well, Riddler is the best stand up. Saying it's a great coaster is...a bit of a stretch.

It's certainly not top 10, but unless you stand on the seat wrong, it's still a real fun ride. Some floater air, a little force, nice giant loop for some hangtime. That can be great to someone!

Just needs the station track and station and then the buildings they are making in the area (they are currently working on said buildings). Heading there this friday so should be able to see better from the Apocalypse area.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

^In other words, no closer to being done than they were 2-3 weeks ago.

Just because they haven't finished all the buildings in the area doesn't mean they aren't any closer. I just gave a general rundown, I haven't said what they finished building as far as buildings in the area.
