Abismo really does intrigue me. The lone Skyloop I rode at Skyline was a ton of fun until that stupid vertical lift holding brake caused the restraints to give me a gut punch. By having a full layout, it looks like that painful moment is eliminated and replaced with airtime.
Bummer on Tornado. I was always intrigued by those traditional Intamin inverts since Volcano tracks so well.
The restraints on Abismo aren't the most comfortable out there. They are very bulky, and really pressed down on me at the bottom of the drop. But the extended layout more than made up for this!
I was expecting that Tornado would be a good coaster, but it did not live up to my expectations, at all. Luckily the first part of the ride has some good forces to it, but after the second looping things get real bad real fast.
