^ Actually, I don't think he did it voluntarily either! I believe he started to lift his arms, and then the pressure and speed of the launch just shot them above his head! I quickly lowered mine into a more "locked position" as you see in the 2nd shot, and got away with that. Still scared me to bits, LOL!
Mamba at Worlds of Fun. I don't get to travel to far. Have been to Disney World and Universal Orlando, but I know those coasters aren't over 205 feet. Hoping to make it to Cedar Point and other places, one of these days.

Top Thrill Dragster: Cedar Point Millennium Force: Cedar Point Valravan: Cedar Point Raptor: Cedar Point Intimidator 305: Kings Dominion Griffon: Busch Gardens Williamsburg Wild Thing: Valleyfair The Beast: Kings Island Son of Beast: Kings Island (When it was open)
Superman: Escape from Krypton at SFMM. I've only ridden the new version, where you get launched backwards. After that it drops to just Goliath, and then some of the smaller hypercoasters: Xcelerator, Cannibal, and SkyRush. I'd love to get on Top Thrill Dragster and Kingda Ka at some point, but I don't think it'll be anytime soon unfortunately.
