Toro has actually been running extremely well this preseason, even in colder temperatures so hopefully we won't see any saddles this season
(The first run of the season may or may not have occurred when it was 39 degrees out and the train may or may not have flown through the course haha I'll say that.)
And yes it typically saddles on the last hill into the brake run. It's taller than the two small humps before it so it's the highest hill following the Rolling Thunder Hill. Intamin purposely made the last hill so tall so that the train would slow down naturally into the brakes.
Can't wait to see everyone on Saturday!
