I hate trying to judge a coaster by a video but I love the way this thing looks. Seems like it has a really good mix of the quick transitions and funky inversion that are staples on most RMC's, but also some more elongated straight runs than some of the rides they've produced in the past. I bet that straight drop into the double up is amazing.
Yay, some NICE footage of this coaster! It looks fantastic. Definitely one of the best, if not the best-looking (aesthetically) RMC in my opinion. I love the blue and white. I also like the sequence of elements and think everything flows very well.
The ride looks incredible and that is some awesome footage! I really dig the white wood and blue rails as well. In fact if Twisted Colossus at Magic Mountain didn't have the 2 color track tone (which I actually like a lot) it would probably be as good looking as this. But I get MM's reason for the two colors.
I only wish the ride had more than 1 big drop. It has the initial one, then every drop from that point forward is just kind of double down bunny hops and inversions dispersed in the straight sections until the brake run. Something just feels lacking.
Someone also commented that it hauls until the end, and I sorta disagree. It kinda looks to lose momentum after the bunny hop at 1:10, then it kinda meanders the rest of the course. And again, I feel like this is because of the momentum lost with all the smaller drops, instead of having bigger drops that would sustain the trains speed.
But compared to what this ride was before the face-lift, bar none it gives you an indication why these RMC I-Beam Topper tracks have become incredibly popular, giving new life to a coaster which 10-15 years ago would have just been torn down.
Wowza, this coaster is GORGEOUS!!! I can't wait to see some reviews come in. Regardless, this seems like exactly the kind of coaster Nagashima Spa Land needed. Hoping to get there one day to ride this, Steel Dragon, and ULTRA TWISTER!
