 Review of Kontiki @ Six Flags New England
1 Rating Posted by: RAM20884 on 2/23/2003 5:39:00 PM
A good ride to do if your in that area and theres no line. Not one worth waiting for but the times ive been there have been a total of 0 people in line so i usually ride it once. Not the fastest so it wont give any real thrills.My major problem with it is that it seems like it does not swing out very much. When i ride it i lean my entire body in so it will swing out..needless to say it hasnt. As for running it backwards..it might help makie it more thrilling but its not needed. If only it was to swing out more it would receive a much higher rating. Increasing the speed wouldnt hurt either. Since its next to the Island Kingdom waterpark its themeing fits and contrasts the usual alpine/snow theming these rides usually have.

It dosnt swing and speeding it up wont help much/ you see their are shock obsorbers fastned to the ride to keep it from swinging.

It seems to me that the point to this ride would be it swinging so why would they put in shock absorbers.

It does swing. The shocks (which are a standard part on rides of this type) just dampen the swinging to smooth out the ride.

but ive been on rides like this that swing a lot..they still have shocks im sure but the ones on Kontiki barely let it swing at all..not enough to get any excitement out of it.

many of you poster have been to Canobie lake their materhorn swings out alot, and the thunderbolt at Funtown splashtown also swings more then this thing. ths ride like many rides belonging to SF has a terable dumbed down ride. and a slight rick back and forth shouldnt be consedered a swing.
