This ride stands no chance of airtime if it uses the standard Premire lap bars because there is no air to be had on Flight of Fear or Son Of Beast. They're so large and heavy they keep you from moving anywhere.
I don't post here enough to warrant a signature.

See and I kinda think it looks cool.

So there's a split vote in the Alvey household on this one... :lol:

I pretty much like any kind of coaster so long as it doesn't beat the crap out of my head, so I am sure I will like this ride. My biggest issue-and one I have read on another coaster forum a while back (CoasterBuzz) is whether or not PKI will keep the special effects operating.

Funny, I FLY out of my seat on Revenge of the Mummy three times during the coaster section. I'd say there's definitely a chance of some nice airtime on IJ.

The new system they use is light years better than the previous trains Premier designed for the park.

PS Elissa, I would think you would have loved this addition - seems kinda on park with Kanonen in the respect that they're both very short height wise but solid layouts. What doesn't impress you about it?

These trains look like cardboard cutouts! Why are there no fronts to them. It's just like they've been painted on..

It looks cute, but not "run right over to PKI to ride it" exciting.

If they built The Addams Family coaster (which is what I voted for in the ride survey), I'd be camped out in the parking lot right now! :P

As far as the Premier Coasters/Lapbars/Airtime...

They give great airtime! Just because you're stapled does not mean you don't feel the airtime!! Sometimes I think it's better to be stapled because you really can feel your body pressing against the restraints with insane airtime! I agree with Joe, Mummy gives at least 2 places with ejector air!

As for Italian Job...I'll be honest, the main thing that disappoints me is that it's at PKI! :lol: That park just does not do it for me! I don't like the rides, and it seems to have really poor crowd control and queues. As for the ride, it just looks really cheesy. At least Mummy is in the dark so you can't see just how cheesy the black light posters look. I'm concerned that between mediocre theming, poor capacity, breakdowns and an okay ride...it just won't do it for me.

I think it will be a pretty fun ride. I'm not expecting it to be intense or incredibly thrilling, but just a nice ride. I just hope PKI keeps the themeing up and well maintained beyond the first season.

Usually themeing on these kind of rides always stay in top shape. Seeing as how the parks don't have to do so much with it after its built.
