That would be a horrible dream. Scorpion is a little Schwarzkopf, but it's still a Schwarzkopf with by default makes it awesome. We loved the coaster when we rode it a few months ago, and it's a great starter coaster for people not quite ready to ride the awesomeness that is Kumba or Montu.

You gotta be kidding right? Zac-Spins are terrible painful rides if the cart is unbalanced. I think these are the only coasters I don't like other than the Togo Stand-ups...

^ it really depends. Insane is insane according to the reviews and the videos. I had an unbalanced ride on Green Lantern and I absolutely loved the intensity.

I don't always seduce Donkeys, but when I do I use classy Champagne!

I'm going to speculate now, my guess is that the seats are snapping back as fast as they are intended to, but the cylinder is set to tight and can't keep up with the fast snap of the seats and therefore the emergency release is activated.

I would suspect that they have spares of these cylinders, as they should get some wear on them, and then need to be replaced/overhauled continuously.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Looks good, although I still haven't really understood what the pre-brakes are for.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

WOW! That drop looks scary! Wonder why they rotate the seats before the train slows and doesn't create as much "whip" on the riders.
In case anyone wanted to see an off-ride test drop that I filmed on Tuesday (4-22), you can click to the link below.
