I think it's just the video. I noticed that some of the track looked "warped" in that video. Not sure why.
The only real spot that concerns me, from the Reverse POV that was posted compared to the actual POV is the hop and turn into the 90 degree turn, it seems to be rather unbanked and on the Reverse it shows people thrown into their sides, although must not be that bad, because there wasn't any grimaces on the riders face.
^I think it's safe to say that it's just the camera making the track look weird. If you watch the video looking back at the riders, you can see how messed up the camera makes them look. Plus, look at any picture showing some of the track, it's not all messed up.
Front seat is amazing. The coaster is very fast, and the POV does not do the ride justice in terms of height. The bridge gives some good airtime, as does the drop back over the road and the bunny hops. The trackwork was not at all what it looked like in the POV (distortion wise), it was extremely smooth.
Only one criticism that would make this day even better... if they would send out trains more than every five minutes. Literally from stop in the station, to go, was five minutes in-between runs, and the blue train was parked in transfer.
Overall an extremely fun and enjoyable ride... A++ for Waldameer and Gravity Group. While I've never ridden Voyage or Hades I can say that this baby has some good airtime even in the front seat, and tracks very smoothly. A very, very good ride... worth the long construction wait for it.
