Gosh I hope this 'transformation' works, cause that ride had really gone to hell and so many other terrible woodies could benefit if this treatment works!
It's true. Even though Giant was my #1 coaster for many years, the last five or six years were a study in diminishing returns. Do you throw a lot of money at a ride to keep it in it's current unridable state?
Or do you throw even more money at it in hopes of changing it into something so new, so different that it can essentially erase all the bad memories?
Giant wasn't even in my top 50 woodies last year.
The finale was still good even in the later years, but you were so brutalized by the first 2/3 of the ride that you couldn't enjoy it. During ERT at Lone Star Coasterthon, the Giant would have a few people all waiting on the front seat while Titan got the crowds. Such a shame.
