First off, the restraints and train are AMAZING. All looping coasters should have these restraints, incredible! Big step up from the Premier Lap Bar Only coasters.

The little preshow on the coaster was very cute and interesting (similar to Furius Baco!), but then the ride itself though was quite slow and had no big forces to it. I would assume that Sea World will go for a very similar ride with little force and a cute preshow to keep the family friendly aspect and that's fine, but don't go expecting a powerful awesome looping launched coaster.


I totally agree. I know a lot of people on the trip wished it was sped up a lot more. Everything about it was fun, but not thrilling. Definitely family friendly, but I wonder if the public get that because of how intimidating it looks. If they sped it up, it could be an incredible ride. I think it could do pretty well in a lot of parks here, we'll see what BGW announces in the next year or so.

^Do ya'll think that Busch Gardens may be aiming t go family friendly with this attraction? as in the fact of it not being to forceful?

With Big Bad Wolf being taken out, possibly. After Grover's Alpine Express the next coaster in the park on the "thrill scale" is Loch Ness Monster which in my opinion is a pretty major jump! I would have to guess that it will be more "forceful" than BBW just because it is a launched coaster and it would more than likely be disappointing to the teen/young adult to see the coaster they grew up with replaced by a more "mild" ride. Just speculating of course...

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Robb, why wouldn't you expect it to come from Mack? Just because they are getting the Intamin at BGT?

Loch Ness is really mild. I mean considering there's little to no head banging on an average day, and considerably less headbanging than other Arrows on a bad day, I'd say it's not that far a jump. Plus the only real element of thrill are the two inversions, and there are other coasters out there that have a lower height restriction that still have inversions. For example, Superdooperlooper at Hershey only has a minimum height requirement of 42".

I don't understand why every thinks Nessie is such an intense ride.

Migrate to Florida. It's what all the cool kids on the East coast do.
