I was thinking the same thing... Perspective maybe??
Bigger is not always better.

I'll drink donkey urine before I'll drink a Pepsi.

I thought the same thing at first but when you actually see it, it does look larger than the loops at the other parks. I tried to get a shot of the ride vehicle on the track to put it into perspective but my group was running off to catch another flight on Superman without me so the shot didn't come out the way I wanted it to.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

I like the color scheme of Hangover, it's unique from all of the many Fireball color schemes. Finally something "themed," if you could even call it that.
Darien Lake is my home park. :kiss:

Coaster Count: 65 || Parks: 12 (I need to branch out and visit new parks :lmao: )
Top 10: 1. Millennium Force | 2. Wicked Cyclone | 3. Superman the Ride | 4. Rougarou | 5. Maverick | 6. Raptor (CP) | 7. Gatekeeper | 8. Top Thrill Dragster | 9. Ride of Steel | 10. Tantrum

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

At the park now. I assure you, Mardi Gras Hangover is absolutely massive in person!

I didn't even notice the ride has 8 "cars" rather than the usual 6. The extra capacity will be great!
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Just pulled into the parking lot and holy cow is it packed. I’ve heard a lot is shut down and everything else is one train. Deep breath. Good thing I love Demon.

Yup it’s bigger. Not overly interested but I’d like to ride it once at night.

It was originally the Saskatchewan Scrambler, but I agree, the new name is awesome.
