I got on the ride today!! After an hour queue which I was soo not happy about. Considering Nemesis was like 15 minutes and Oblivion was a walk-on..
The build up to the launch is ok I suppose. But it's clearly obvious from the starting lights and the countdown and the "Go go go!" When it launches. There's alot of noise in the station from the incredibly rattly launch and the screeching car sounds when you launch. Unfortunately the smoke effects weren't on.
The Launch itself is rather pants although for a first Launched Coaster it was thrilling. And then it all goes down hill rather.
The first corner throws you into the Otsr's which never came close to my shoulders. Then the first air-time hill throw you out of your seat so much! (-0.7G's!) My restraint was a good inch above my legs (due to me being crafty in the station) and I flew up and hit the bar which hurt slightly. Then the turn around Corkscrew's on-ride photo has a slight bump in it for no reason. The hill after that sucks as you just glide over it. And then the little hill just before the trim brakes reallly hurts your legs.
I have bruises coming through off them.
Overall the ride lasts all of 30 seconds lol. Which is still longer than TTD
Don't bother waiting more than 20-30 minutes for it ever. The ride is over so quickly it's embarrasing, almost as embarrassing as Alton's hlf-hearted atempt to theme this Race Track around Ugland.
Prehistoric Dinosaurs and Race Cars do not mix.
Best bit about the ride is the Radio around Ugland. 80's music!
