If all goes well, I'll be riding Kong on the 22nd. It'll be my first SLC. Any advice to a first timer other than keeping my head back?
I've personally had no issues with Kong giving me a bad ride. The only place that my head got bumped moderately hard was on the final right turn before the train re-enters the station. I like the ride and have never really understood the SLC hate, or Vekoma hate in general for that matter.
I have yet to ride an SLC. T3 would've been my first SLC this June, but we decided to go to Kennywood instead of Kentucky Kingdom. However, if I make my planned NorCal weekend trip later this year, I'll definitely ride Kong to see if it's really that bad.
^ That actually isnt a custom SLC it is their Shenlin layout which is featured on one other SLC Snow Mountain Flying Dragon at Happy Valley Shenzhen. The only custom SLC is Odyssey at Fantasy Island (Great Nor'easter technically counts but it only has a slightly different layout from the standard SLC)
