The wife and I went to the Media VIP Preview this afternoon..... it was a great ride! Great surroundings around a great layout and a very smooth but exciting ride. Lots of quick turns that were very surprising, even on the 3rd experience. I found myself getting confused a couple times as to which direction we were going and where in the general footprint of the ride we were. It was nicely disorienting. It was faster than I was expecting, given the overall height and momentum build up. The weather was pretty gloomy and rainy earlier in the day, but by the event time the sun came out and it warmed up a little. I snapped a few pictures of the event, nothing too exciting... but I'll endeavor to get them on here tonight.
Hey Paul, it was good to meet you today at the Park!
It was a great ride, just like Paul said. My wife was a GCI virgin before today, and fell in love with them this afternoon!
I will only post a few pics. I saw the camera that Paul was using and his pics will turn our much better than mine!
These are the coupons that we got. It was nice to get a free dinner!
They brought in some cats from a wildlife place.
The line was not too bad. Only about 20 minutes running two trains.
This is a fellow TPR guy but I forgot his name.
Our TPR were a big hit! Lots of people came up and talked to us about them! The fat ACER woman gave us a mean look. The ride OP guy took this pic, and when we asked if he would, he said anything for TPR!
Prowler is definitely an outstanding ride. Of my three rides, two were in the back and one in the front and the back is definitely "the spot."
The ride itself isn't huge, but it takes great advantage of the terrain that it's on. The air is quick, but most of the time it's mixed in with nice laterals as well. While not on the scale of Voyage, I'd consider it a mini version, simply for the speed, location, terrain, extremely fast pace and disorientation.
Worlds of Fun did very good with this ride. Easily top 3 wood for me.

I wouldn't be so quick to judge any GCII coaster. They are very deceptive with their airtime and have some tricky ways of throwing it at you. After hearing these reports Prowler is definitely on my to-do list for this year.
