After years of coasters and thrill rides I would like to see them take a season now and invest in the animals. That is what makes that particular park different. To many empty or small or worn down animal enclosures and stadiums
Best Wood Lightning Rod....Goliath SFGAM....Shivering Timbers....Storm Chaser...Voyage
Best Steel Maverick...Lighting Run.....Montu...Mako..Fury...Afterburn...Manta
Honorable mentions Kumba..Raging Bull..Legend..Cornball..M Force..Rapter..Mr Freeze

You know what....Way to many good coasters the best :lmao:

This looks to be a great addition to the park! It's a great ride, and it fits perfect in that area.

Here's a trip report for Labor Day. The Joker, Superman, and Harley Quinn weren't open initially. Later on, I was able to ride all of them, though. When I was able to ride Harley Quinn, only one of the trains was running, so it made the line longer and the experience less of a novelty. I liked how it stalled at the apex and then came down and reversed direction. Overall, a pretty enjoyable ride. The Penguin was down all day and when I walked past Tazmanian Devil it was down. After hearing that V2 had been closed for a while, I was glad I was able to ride it.

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

^What did you (or anyone else for that matter) think about the roughness? Was it during the rolling portion, the valleys/stations? The tops of the inversions? All over? What did you think about the restraints themselves?

I Love Donkeys!

When the only forces you are experiencing is "shaking", then you know there is a problem. The entrance into the stations is where I noticed the most amount of roughness.

Wouldn't be surprised to see an empty stadium plot become a Justice League

I personally didn't find it rough. The restraints seemed fine to me.

For the new Batman ride, how does the magnetic technology work? Also, what makes the I-box track floating? Thanks.
