Runaway Mountain
La Vibora

PS- If you can't handle a standard size swing ride (Gunslinger), then you're better off staying away from Texas Skyscreamer. :shockr:



Thanks! I'll keep that in mind as the dates get closer. Is your list put together by any type of system like going in a big circle of the park or anything rather than trekking back and forth all day?

I suppose I could handle the swing rides, I rode it hundreds of times, I just always had an irrational day dream of sorts about falling into the pond they had next to it or my shoes falling in the pond and having to go shoeless the rest of the day.

Any input on my other questions?




I start from the entrance (6:00 on a clock) and go counter clockwise. I used to go clockwise.

Actualy, you can now ride NTAG more then once with a platinum flash pass. However, once you have rode you must take the flash pass device back to the reservation center so they can re-set the device so you can ride NTAG again. You must do that process every time if you choose to ride it more then once in a day.

Lets say I am in line for NTAG. If the line is all the way to the entrance sign, how long will I be waiting? Also, are there any water fountains in line?

^ 45 mins to an hour, depending on ride op proficiency.

As for your other question......no.

Actually, I would say if the line is at the entrance of NTAG, its probably an 1.5 to 2 hrs wait. I have been on the ride multiple times where the line is right near train tracks and still waited around 45 minutes to an 1 hr. It really just depends on the flash pass person letting people up the station. To many times they don't feel up the station and let trains go empty.

Thought I'd share this...

I received this email on Friday. I apparently won a contest for the first time in my life, but I couldn't accept the prize because we ended up planning our trip for the following weekend and it would have been impossible to drive to Arlington two weekends in a row.

So, you were selected to be a guinea pig for this thing were you. Probably, a good thing you couldn't make it. I'm guessing that if the test subjects, I mean, first riders survive, then they'll start allowing regular park patrons on this thing. :lmao:

^Looks like none of the chains have broken yet. They probably won't until I get on, and then, only the chains holding my chair.
