As soeone who prefers airtime over speed, I'm glad it's intense. That means I'll probably like it.

This is awesome! Great video Robb, the HD version looks amazing. Chuck, can't wait to see your take on it all. Congrats to KD on this amazing day and addition.

I remember first seeing the opening section of the layout and seeing how similar it was to Piraten. I'm almost ashamed to say that I greyed out on Piratan just coming up from the first turn and it's only 105''. So, just a tad worried about what this will do but hey, it'll make it that much scarier lol

Is that lift hill faster than El Toro and Millennium Force? That was insane how fast Robb was thrown over the hill!

You can't have all positive reviews on this new ride. I'll be the spoiler. :devil: I was watching the guy behind Robb and looks like a lot of head banging with the restraints. :vekoma: It reminds me a lot of Maverick at Cedar Point which I don't like riding because of the head banging / neck bruising. :( I do need to ride it, but I'm not as positive as all of you are... Looks like nice though. :airtime:
Coasternut,

LIVING FOR THAT AIRTIME!! :airtime:

Robb rode around 50 times today in different areas on the train and says he didn't even notice the headbanging. So I'm guessing that it's the kind of ride that throws you around a bit, but not actually into the restraint.

Now, this could obviously change based on your height and build and how you fit in the restraint, but for Robb it wasn't a problem.
