Have you ridden Cyclops in the back seat? Thats *real* airtime; is it really *airtime* if you are stapled to the seat? I think it's *upward forces* - isn't that was Great Adventure used to call it?
The 2nd to last bunny hop on the new Zippin Pippin in Wisconsin has the most violent/ejector moment of air time I have ever come across. It's almost too much. It left seat belt bruises on my outer thighs. Has anyone else experienced that? The new Zippin Pippin, not the old one in Memphis (which was great too, especially with the old buzz bars.. but that 2nd to last speed bump on the new one was a *goodie* thrown in by Gravity Group I believe.)
Skyrush sounds great, cannot wait to ride. Although, from looking at the pictures, I have also wondered why the bottoms of the lap bars weren't designed with more surface area to absorb all the upward force generated (more like the B&M clamshell)... At a certain point, the negative G's surpass the point of fun, and venture into just plain discomfort. Too much of anything is not good. Especially when the damn restraint becomes tighter and tighter.
Would it be a *fair* trade off to back off the -G's just a *hair* and then supply a little more room in the seats to move up and down?
