It seems like Mindbender has gotten faster as it has gotten older. I for one am glad that the trims / blocks kick in like they do. Untrimmed going into that last loop would have airtime galore, but then you'd be unconscious pulling into the station
. Still one of the best rides ever to me (I've been riding it since it was new.)
I am quite glad that the trims were on otherwise, that loop would have been uncomfortable. but the downside is the lack of airtime.
I think the reason why it was on the day I went was due to the unseasonable heat, hopefully it won't be so bad in September
I do wonder though why the bottom of the horizontal loop has such a rattle? is it due to the waterfall making the track rust in that part of the ride or is it just because of the amount of Gs? I've been wondering that for quite some time.
