What surprised me about Mind Bender is how remarkably smooth it is after 40+ years. I've been on rougher B&Ms built in the last 10 years!
Steel: 176 / Wood: 32 / Total: 208
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

It seems like Mindbender has gotten faster as it has gotten older. I for one am glad that the trims / blocks kick in like they do. Untrimmed going into that last loop would have airtime galore, but then you'd be unconscious pulling into the station :). Still one of the best rides ever to me (I've been riding it since it was new.)

^ I gotta admit that was one of the first thoughts that came to my mind when I saw the vines. I'm not 100% sold on it happening, but good God it would be awesome. Two RMCs at my home park sounds like a dream come true. :P

tbh, I didn't either. I'm just hoping the 4D free spin rumors aren't true. ;)

If it actually is themed to Poison Ivy, I don't think it would go in the old Splashwater Falls location... I'm thinking the new rides going where the stunt show in Gotham City was. They were in the middle of tearing that down when I was there last weekend, so it would make sense.

Poison Ivy is a Batman character, right? So Gotham would make sense.

What's the latest w/ the Splashwater Falls site? Is it gone? They doing anything there?
