I got here right before it came back and has been running one train so it's like 40 min waits now. So worth it though. I'm staying till they throw me out.


The back really is a whole lot better.

Already ridden it twice today, currently in line for a third time. Line is like 45 min to an hour now. And the ride? Amazing. Very different from Twisted Colossus, much more compact and forceful. The inversions are flawless and the airtime is great. In my opinion it's tied with TC (they're the only RMCs I've ridden). Operations are good, 2 trains. Line moves fast.
I love Disney parks and RMCs. Bay Area

^ I've seen a number of people with the t-shirts. They're $14-$16, which is a better price than I thought (or maybe I'm just numb to Six Flags pricing).

FYI, I'm in line right now and the ride went down at around 11:30am. It's noon now and the ride is still down. No announcement or communication of any kind was made to those waiting in line. They've cycled a few trains empty, and that's about it. Waiting in tunnel, the music here could make someone go crazy.

I did get in one ride earlier today with about a 40 minute wait. It's a pretty darned good ride! So far, I'd give Wicked Cyclone the edge for intensity and speed, but once the Joker warms up I bet they'll be about even.

^ What do you want to know? It looks like the line has shortened since 1pm passed.

BTW, rode two more times in the back (first ride was also in back). Feels much faster already. This thing hauls. First drop is Maverick-style ejector air.

I was in the tunnel for 20-30 minutes when it broke down yesterday. but I think being in the shade and hearing the music is better than being in the sun and no music. lol
