Seems like a fun coaster :)

One of my all-time favorites. Just really well composed, and the fact that there is only one vertical-ish dive actually makes it that much better in my opinion.

I think you're right. I would think I would remember seeing another curved chain lift because they don't come up often.

Hopefully, Knightmare gets relocated somewhere, it looks like a really nice Schwarzkopf coaster and it would be sad to see it scrapped.

Is this ride an exact copy of Jetline at Grona Lund or is there a difference in track layout? The two seem almost identical to me.

I think Japan has one that has a couple of turns on the lift that is probably made by Meisho/Senyo. I could be wrong, just remembered seeing it somewhere.

^ kind of different as this one has an airtime hill after the first big turn and Jet Line has a twist.

It could be a really fun coaster, could be better if they take the mountain from Japan. Schwarzkopf is GREAT!

Looks to be another great Schwarzkopf, but then again, when is there not one? (Revolution doesn't deserve to be treated the way it's treated.)

I'm a little bummed that I had a chance to ride this back in 2005 and didn't.

I loved this ride. It gets pretty intense near the end with the tight turns and rather quick transitions. I always check it's still there when I drive north on the M6. I hope somewhere buys it. Maybe it could do well at Lightwater.

It's sad that a coaster that looks as fun as this one didn't seem to be taken care of well by the park. Then again, that applies to over half of six flags' coasters.
