Really hope I can get there to ride it. Looks like so much fun! I always imagined how awesome it would be to ride a backwards B&M.

I'm surprised they left off the wheel covers and lead-car fender. I originally thought this was a US-based safety thing, but I guess it was purely aesthetics. (shrug)

When I went last season, one train had wheel covers and the other didn't.

I was originally going today, but instead am going tomorrow. Who's going?

As for the ride itself - it looks like they've added a pilot car. I wonder if they'll decorate it like Busch Gardens did with Alpengeist's?


I don't believe they have. I think there is just one less row of seats in order for the station to work out. The pilot car is simply where the last row of seats would be attached too.

^ This is correct. The ride had 8 rows before, now it has 7.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Looks really weird like this. I really wished I could go to SFGAm but not a chance going to miss this. :(

Does anyone know how intense the ride was? Was it a great ride experience?

Holy seven-car backwards Batman!

Curious to hear reviews on how the ride experience was.
