The loop and immlimen (sp?) are both intence and great, the barrell roll packs a punch, and the trims before the awsomley intense bat wing hardly tap the train now! The floater air time into the MCBR is fun, and the MCBR isnt THAT badly braked, the loop and the corkscrew barrell roll thingy is intence along with the helix into the entrance to the break run. Ive ridden montu 331 times and still think it packs a punch, considering that Kumba is in the same park and is more intence.
Thats right. The loop was a loop...nothing untypical about it, back or front.
Immelman did what I expected, floater. Its not SUPPOSED to be intense, immelmans should deliver imo floater air at the top with the rotation feeling. The zero g IMO was taken a touch too fast actually, taking away the Zero G feeling and making it more of a speed roll.
The Batwing was the only remotely intense part but still, friction trims suck.
As for the brake on the MCB, we came to a screeching hault. I think we went from like 30 to 5mph. From there that loop underground isnt any more intense than the first. And I must say the rest is quite boring. The turn around is slow and the wingover, while awesome from the front seat, doesnt whip as much as Raptors or BTR's.
I really find the second half of Montu to just be kinda blah. I would rather have a wingover than a loop, its MUCH more dynamic from a design/artistic standpoint. I think with trims off the ride would be hella intense but its been neutered so badly.
I know its not that intense because I had very high hopes from all the things people said, much like what you said. It just totally did not deliver at all for me. Not quite as bad as Raging Bull (ultimate disappointment forme) but it was close. Kumba on the other hand was WAY better than I expected. So was Gwazi and it wasnt even racing.
With that being said, Montu was still VERY fun. Thats my analytical - pick - it - apart review. I dont like to do that but I do for that ride and Raging Bull because I expected so much but go so little.
Sorry to side track topic.
