Abismo really does intrigue me. The lone Skyloop I rode at Skyline was a ton of fun until that stupid vertical lift holding brake caused the restraints to give me a gut punch. By having a full layout, it looks like that painful moment is eliminated and replaced with airtime.

Bummer on Tornado. I was always intrigued by those traditional Intamin inverts since Volcano tracks so well.


Thanks!

The restraints on Abismo aren't the most comfortable out there. They are very bulky, and really pressed down on me at the bottom of the drop. But the extended layout more than made up for this!

I was expecting that Tornado would be a good coaster, but it did not live up to my expectations, at all. Luckily the first part of the ride has some good forces to it, but after the second looping things get real bad real fast.

Thanks! It's a great park, and Abismo was a lot of fun.

My report from Parque Warner is coming soon. Spoiler alert: I did ride Stunt Fall multiple times, and it was awesome!

Grabbing a ride or two on a traditional Intamin Invert is on my list of things to do- sorry to hear that Tornado underwhelmed you.
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

Tornado was also on my to-do list, because it is a very unique ride. So I was really looking forward to riding my first Intamin inverted coaster, but I just couldn't help it to feel disappointed. If the ride was actually smooth, I would have rated it a lot higher, though.

Great report! I'm very curious as to why Tornado's loop(s) are so overly supported like that.

Thanks!

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. And what makes it even more curious is that the other Intamin SLC in Finland, also called Tornado, only has a couple of simple supports for its loop. It did open two years later though.

I was also looking forward to riding it but it was pretty much as I expected (which was nothing special). The one at sarkanniemi looks more interesting.

But nice report! Overall I agree with you on the park, it's pretty fun but not the best one in the area and could use a little more attention.
I actually found abismo's restraints fairly comfortable although they are quite restrictive for lap bars. I thought they held me in the hangtime part without discomfort even though I prefer, lets say.. mack's lap bars.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.
