I would've prefered a small bunny hop :) Could've provided some decent airtime before the final curves into the brakes!

Does anyone think there might be the possiblity of them cranking up the launch speed now? It had to be right around 70 mph for the heartline but is it possible for it to be like 80 mph for the s-curve. That would make the second half of the ride a little more interesting. I can hope at least, right? :)

I love it! Think of how great an S-curve will be. They took out a boring heartline roll and put in something worthwhile. This also means that they should be able to get it up and running fairly quickly. I'd say a few weeks. I'm not dissapointed, as i value my health, and 7 g's didn't sit well with me. I do question why this didn't get caught during the design phase, and I bet some important questions are going to be asked in the next few months.

Right, it's not like this is going to change the overall image of the ride, I mean, it could've been worse. "Sorry folks, we can't have the 95 degree drop, so, it'll be steep, but not extraordinarily steep."

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Pfft. Having actually seen the ride testing, I still think it'll easily be their best ride.

That's a shame... The heartline roll was actually my most anticipated part of the ride! :angry:

You messed up bigtime Stengel...

Anyway, it sucks to see it go, but it would suck more to have a broken neck :vekoma:

Well by looking at those pictures, thats going to be one tight S-curve...I already feel my head slamming from one side of the restraint to the next. :?r
