Great POV despite the not so great coaster, to say the least :lmao:
It was only my second SLC and the other wasn't too bad (Blue Tornado at Gardaland). This one made me wish it was over, though..
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.

Standard issue Vekoma SLC bars. I think all of them that opened had these until they started replacing the OTSR restraints with the vests.

It sounds like you are losing your voice from all the screaming Robb. Or were your vocal chords erased as well? Ahhhhhhhh! THE HORROR! :vekoma:

That's incredible you were able to get a POV of Mind Eraser that made it look smooth. I remember that being one of the roughest SLCs.

Here's another video from our trip. Honestly, Twisted Timbers was quite an amazing surprise. Don't hate me for saying it, but I actually think I give it the edge over Steel Vengeance but really all three of the new RMC's we rode on this trip were absoultely INCREDIBLE and I would hate to have to choose one over the other. It just goes to show you the high level of quality and thrill that RMC has been putting out there!

that's an awesome video, Robb. every angle, on and off ride, the music intro, etc. only reason i may give Steel Vengeance the edge is because of the length. (insert, that's what she said, joke) but those three consecutive hills is what i live for. :airtime:

Wow! Excellent video. By far the best Twisted Timbers footage out there and one of my new favorite videos on the channel! The POV is awesome (wow the ride has really sped up) and I love the stationary camera through the rolls.
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
