I can't believe I got to ride it today. It's a fun ride and the queue is just beautiful (inside the building). Great report.

That drop looks to be >90°. Maybe it's just the angle of the photograph. :?r

This coaster still delivers, in spades, despite it's rather small stature.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

Yep, the drop is 87-degrees. I think most (if not all?) of the smaller diver coasters have shallower drops.

If you look closely, you will see the themed "cave" with little gold pieces.

^ I swear I knew there was gold somewhere (saw them lowering it inside the tunnel during construction) but you can't see it during the ride, Or yesterday I didn't see a single piece of gold. Nice touch tough.

:nina:

What I say is, is it all that bad being a one/two trick pony, if those 1-2 tricks are... pretty awesome?

I mean this doesn't stop TTD or KK from being awesome rides, so why should it stop divers?
