Agreed. I can't stand Roar, but I'm hoping they retrack the entire ride and not part of it.

^ Don't hold your breath, it's very unusual for a park to do that unless it's a total make over such as NTAG/Iron Rattler/Medusa.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yeah, this can only be a good thing. I just hope it makes a lasting difference.

OMG, yes!! When I rode Roar about a month ago in the middle, the bottom of the first drop and the next hill were so freaking bad. It hurt so much and I'm usually very tolerant of rough rides. I'm the one who insists on riding Kong every time I visit, but that ride on Roar seriously was not fun. It's so good they're doing some retracking! Hopefully it'll come back to a more tolerable level, and maybe I can start riding it in the back again (fingers crossed!)

I'm probably going to go next weekend, maybe they'll have more completed and I can snap some pics?

Did you see the baby dolphin?!?! :D She's sooooo cute!!!

I'm remember them saying they were going to do it last year, but every time I went to the park it was spinning forwards

Wow six flags really like to put stuff running backwards :lol:
