Man, that coaster just hauls some serious ass through the course.

Thanks for the great video!

About the Zero G Stall I barely felt "zero g's" except maybe in the far, far back. I could feel it in TC's but not that much here.


With full trains I still felt plenty of 0g hangtime in all three inversions. But earlier in the morning Chad and I got a ride where we were the only 2 people in the train and we really felt insane hangtime!!!

Joker is just all around solid in every area. Too bad we missed Alan later in the day!


Where does Joker rank among the other RMCs for you?


With Outlaw Run and Medusa at the top, I would say it's just right after those two. I thought it was pretty similar to Wicked Cyclone, maybe even a tad more intense!

^ That's so great to hear! Those two are definitely my favorite as well! I really look forward to hitting Joker in 2 weeks and the remaining North American RMCs within a month!

What a bummer for the holiday weekend visitors. Hopefully it's fixed by mid week. I want to hit the park on Wednesday
Tigga, please!

That's great! The more I rode it, the more I thought it edged out Wicked Cyclone in intensity. It did get better and better!

POV is great by the way! I like how well you can hear the upstop wheels during the airtime hills.

Ouch that it didn't open. We had considered trying to go today, glad we didn't try to. Sounds like tomorrow is iffy as well. Hopefully back up by Tuesday as a few of us were thinking of going that day

I did.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Ouch, today was supposed to be the official public opening..sucks for all the GP that came down to ride it. I was considering popping in today too, glad I didn't.

Yeah, I wasted 8 hours standing at the front of the line. This might be one of the most embarrassing things the park has gone through.
