Because they're the most insane and possibly most intense elements.

Even for me, they're one of those "holy ffck" moments that I still can't decide if I love or hate. Put two of them on a flyer and it will be easier to choose the latter. Simply put, I think they're too intense for more than one.

Seems like they've been comfortable with negative-G airtime for a long time. But, their preference leans a lot more toward comfortable floater air vs. Skyrush/El Toro ejector air.

It's the responsible thing to do.

Glad you enjoyed your trip.

Putting a fly-to-lie and inside raven turn combo right before a pretzel loop on The Flying Dinosaur is pretty much what you're describing. I've never been more breathless or shocked by forceful maneuvers than this... The coaster is absolutely amazing, but given how forceful it is, I don't know that I could ride it more than a few times in a day.

It looks like a beautiful ride but ffck all that. If Superman/Manta make me feel nauseous, I'd be miserable for hours.

Hello everyone!
I was thinking about Journey to Atlantis in SWO... Does anybody know if the rooftop was planned as water fonts, with waterfalls from higher ponds to lower?
Thanks!

I wouldn't think so, but looking at it that would definitely be cool.

^^I think the terraced design was done more so to make the show building look less blocky and help emphasize the notion that thematically, the city was rising from the sea. The only water features on the exterior of the building that I know of are the two waterfalls on either side of the arch leading into the lift hill that takes you back into the building for the final drop.

This is why I thought JTA rooftop was planned as water fountains...
See? there looks like water spouts... I wish there's a video with those features working!

I don't find them painful but certainly pointless. Those Premier trains are hard enough to get in and out of, the collars just turn the whole affair into absolute comedy.
