I never felt Skyrush looked underwhelming at all at first glance. Those of us who have been on Mega-Lites and other smaller Intamin rides know what to expect. They have the ability to pack a LOT of intense ride action into a small space.

Yea I don't know if you were looking at the correct ride. Skyrush never looked underwhelming for a second. Also when you first encounter the ride at the park before riding it you can see it absolutely tear through the course.

That makes sense then. I'm not as well-seasoned as you are! I initially thought that Skyrush was pretty slow going over its hills when they started testing it.

When I first saw Skyrush it looked insane, you could hear the terror in the people's screams! I know they slowed it down some on the lift after the first year. Riding it the first year it opened was insane, I have never felt anything like that on a ride before. The second time(a few years later) was still insane but not like the first year it was open.

Skyrush was one of the few coasters that actually frightened me the first time I rode it. If Flying Aces is in that league, it sounds good to me.

I completely agree. Looks can be VERY deceiving, especially with rides like these. I will say though that just from the couple videos I've seen so far, Flying Aces does look like a hell of a good time. :)

Personally, I thought Skyrush looked very underwhelming from POVs (compared to how amazing and intense it actually ended up being when I did ride it). I took it as a coaster with decent airtime and an uninspired layout. Once I rode it for the first time my mind changed completely and it is now my #1 coaster if I had to rank.

That said I don't think this looks as impressive as Skyrush simply comparing off ride footage. I am all for as intense as possible (within legal and physical reason). I hope I can get out there to ride it one day though as it looks like a top notch coaster!

Holy crap, I had no idea it had an inversion! Wow! This ride looks stunning. It just keeps going and going and going. Jealous of Dave over there riding right now!
