I am not sure why , I mean I love this ride concept and layout but I see a small thing bothering me.
The Layout is 2 large hills and a few sweeping turns. Pufferfish and I were discussing this earlier. To me the layout, seems like they took Desert Race, cut its launch off, added a lift and drop and called it a day. You get almost the same thing. Sweeping turns and 2 semi large hills with a 2 hill return run.
The only thing for me with this ride standing out, is the trains.
Not a bad thing. I am just not as excited for this ride as I use to be.
I disagree. Skyrush is going to tear through "the same layout" (it really isn't, but I haven't ridden Desert Race and you probably haven't either, so we can't judge) a tick faster at 70mph (Desert Race is 62mph, or 100km/h).
Tell you what. I'll drive down to Hersheypark and ride Skyrush (my most anticipated roller coaster for next season as well) until I get motion-sick again (probably after the 9th time), while you sit on your chair at home and compare it to Desert Race. We'll see how much fun I have compared to you.
