A nice back and butt massage. Now you don't have to pay for one of those vibrating barrels that parks seem to have all over the place! :p

So what happened to Gwazi, how/why did it become such a train wreck? Is it just Florida's hot and humid weather conditions??

^The PTC trains were not designed to navigate the tracks' twisted turns, causing them rip up the track.

^From what I understand and heard, putting the MF trains on an already ripped up, beat up ride could never help and Busch didn't want to spend the money on more than some simple retracking.

^Nope. Very true. ;)
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

I vote for splitting the difference and simply calling it "debatable." ;)

As for Gwazi, I didn't hate it, nor find it completely airtime-less, but I won't cry when it's gone. Once was enough.
