The 24K gold lift motor!

I really like the second off-axis airtime hill, feels like a wave turn and Intamin twisted airtime hill combination.

The first drop in the back seat is something else. It starts off with a little bit of hangtime, but once the train gets some speed it just throws you spinning down.

The corked roll is really cool too, it's a legitimate zero-g roll, where you're between the seat and the lap bar the whole time. And the first airtime hill is really good, and the first two overbanks are great. Most of the ride is pretty fantastic, except for the end. The end sucks.

It's a little hard to see in the reverse POV, but the last double down has that weird airtime that throws you forward more than out of your seat and you come crashing down on the restraint. There's also that last overbank, which is just really, really, really awkward. In a not so good way.

Don't get me wrong, SC is an amazing ride, it's just that after the first half of the Twist and Shout, it loses a looooot of momentum.

Easily one of the best things about this coaster is the placement of the on-ride photo. Finally someone put it on an airtime hill, and the results are perfect.
