Yeah just getting these trains wont fix the damage the old trains have already done. Wildcat was barely any smoother, but it will not be getting rougher much more. Same with Gwazi. When i rode this back in 2002 it was not rough at all, but im sure it is now. Anyways they will have to do a LOT of retracking for these trains to run well.
I did not like this coaster one bit, at least with the old trains! I got *really* bad sunburn the day before, but I needed both Gwazi credits so I had to endure the suffering! Sheikra and other rides didn't hurt, but I guess the vibrations and random jolts made me not like the ride. Millennium Flyer trains are super comfortable, so looks like Busch Gardens will have a great 2011! (Cheetah Hunt!)
It's been hit or miss with the dispatch of the trains... WHEN they have both sides open, sometimes they DO dispatch them together, when other times they just don't seem to care... But I've noticed that even when they DO dispatch them together, (at least recently) Lion somehow get quite a bit ahead of Tiger... Lion will be at the bottom of the first drop by the time Tiger is just going over the peak... so the dueling winds up being minimal at best...
...so hopefully with the Millenium Flyer's in place, not only with they hopefully run them together more consistantly... but hoping that both Lion and Tiger can keep up with each other... Either way, I'm super excited... the Tiger trains look wonderful (wish they had the Gwazi logo on the front, or a Lion head/Tiger head to differenciate... but that is nit-picking...) Cannot wait to ride once this sucker re-opens...
I hope these things work really well for the ride. It needs an improvement over the PTC's that's for sure. Kentucky Rumbler was fantastic with them, however Roar was not. Hopefully it's more like Rumbler!!!
I'll be out of town on the 22nd, but I'll for sure be there the week after.
