Yeah, this is them! :lol: To be fair, they aren't explicitly Christian Rock, at least they weren't. Sadly, it seems they've trended in that direction recently...

I just rode Cyborg. I’m shocked to say that it was very mellow. Fun ride but not nearly as intense as I was expecting. Second ride had more intensity to it so it seems to vary.

Here’s a full off-ride video that I shot during this morning’s preview.

^The ride program appears to have been neutered! Probably afraid they'll make guests vomit. The Tourbillion is capable of a much better program than that!

I think that program is a little better. I LOVE crazy spinny rides like this, but even I was feeling uneasy watching that first testing video. It probably feels crazier onride than looking at it too.

It’s funny how many people premptively bitched about nausea when Joker (Total Mayhem) was announced yet no one said a word about nausea when this contraption was announced.

Good for them turning that program down. These things are not something I’d like to try on any faster/longer program. This program looks identical to the one in the POV, which is just on the edge of nauseating already.

Wow, that ride cycle looks like crap. The seats barely do full inversions and revolutions in general. Not what I expected nor wanted.

JFC calm down y'all. Have we learned nothing from the whiners who freak out at the first POV videos of coasters shot early in the season on cold mornings with an empty train? Like any ride, its going to feel differently than it looks from an offride video. As far as the ride program for Cyborg, it changes. Did the last few posters miss this line?

From CJ (if unfamiliar, he basically lives at the park) who rode it 12 times as soon as it opened yesterday:

Huh? Plenty of people in this thread (myself included) have been saying they wouldn't go near this vomit machine since the very moment it was announced. I also said the same thing about Joker and turns out I love the free-spins.

Care to be more specific? Or are you insinuating that all hip-hop artists have no talent? :?r :roll:

^Boldikus is right. Give it time. This was just my first impression from day one of it being open. I didn’t stand there to video each cycle to pick the best looking one and I believe this was only the third of the day. I was on the first full cycle with CJ but didn’t marathon it like he did LOL. We definitely flipped more on my second ride so the early mellowness could easily just be part of the break-in cycle. Either way I’d wait to ride it for yourself before drawing any conclusions from this.

I've been crazy busy for the past few months so I'm just trying to catch up with all the stuff that's been going on and I completely forgot that this thing was actually getting built. I love seeing some weird flat rides get installed. It's interesting that it has a unique ride cycle everytime, I suppose it makes sense for it to adapt to weight distributions but I didn't expect it.

Also, regardless of the quality of the on-ride experience, you can't deny that it is a really cool ride to watch.

I literally saw them at a Christian music festival I went to with a friend last summer lol

They're okay at best, I wasn't a fan.
