The long awaited moment was there today.Raptor opened at Gardaland
and guess what.. i was there
I had a blast being at the park today, got to ride the new ride a bunch of times and took a lot of pictures. I do hope these images will give you a good impression of the ride, the area and the fun it is.
About the ride.. (the following is based on the rides I had today and my personal opinion)
To me it was a fun ride (I have not been on Furious Baco but have been on X2)
Depending on where you're sitting it's an amazing view and lot's of fun or a ride that does pack a punch (not like Insane (ERT session) but sure makes you scream like a little baby.
The theming is top notch. So many details to look at (pretty sure i still missed plenty), the que area gives plenty of opportunities to see trains fly by.
About that "big" thing a lot of people were talking/worrying about.. Vibrations.. as soon as there are moving parts.. guess what there is vibration.. It looks worse in video then it is on the ride. Some of my rides were even very very smooth and some i could feel something. But it's not disturbing the ride at all.
The restraints they put on this ride are amazing. They give you a lot of freedom.
Tomorrow there's a media event so i'll probably have another update about that with some more info (i hope) and probably some more pictures.Pictures from the second day
Anyway, picture time.
Feel free to comment and if you are interested in specific images.. let me know and i will see what i can do for you tomorrow.
