Just my opinion

To be honest its not fair to compare this to ispeed or katun, compare it to other water rides like tidal wave at thorpe or journey to alantis in orlandoor any shoot the chutes , yeah its not going to be as fun as the other rides in the park but there could of be alot less coaster going on with this one.

True, but DiVertical is marketed more as a coaster, not so much as a water ride. So basically you're expecting a coaster with a splashdown, instead of a flume ride with a coaster section. As a coaster, it looks very mediocre. As a water ride, it looks really great. I think its the fact its the tallest coaster in the park, yet its really a family ride that lets me down.

If that made no sense its because I just woke up and really have no idea what Im saying :|

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I only got the slightest bit of enjoyment out of Journey to Atlantis at SWSA, and I am expecting this to at least be better than that. It's a bit more of a "real" coaster than that barely-a-credit shoot-the-chutes.

The general disppointment is probably coming from the late overhyped annoucement... I would ride it because I liked the Mack versions (one features a very surprising airtime drop into a tunnel, curving steeper further down the drop, funny to look at since lots of riders with hands up suddenly hold on tight lol) So, one for the list but I wouldn't say Pilgrim is better, just because of the length od this one. but it's true: the park managers really overhyped it with the "world record breaking coaster" announcement... even when the official name came out with (di)VERTICAL I'm sure peeps expected more. Me included !

Where did the name Divertical come from, I understand Dive, but where does Vertical come from?

^ I'm assuming the lift, but I could be wrong.

Divertical is the blending of two words Dive and Vertical.

The "ve" are repeated in both words. Vertical conveys moving along an up and down plane. The coaster goes up the lift and then it goes down the hill.

It's not a difficult concept.

Also in Italian the word FUN is DIVERTIMENTO. =)
I think it started from that and it came out as it has been explained earlier!

there are some new photos... on one of them you can see a train... so maybe testing already started or they just did a kind of pull-through:

Yeah, but its strange for a park to think up a name based on its lift ;)
When I first heard the name, I automatically thought of a vertical drop and was expecting a B&M Dive machine. Though maybe translated into italian DiVertical means something. Like cake.
