Ouch! For all of you who complain about Vekoma boomerangs and SLCs, Arrow megaloopers, and anything made by Togo, I have one question for you--have you ridden this thing? A stand-up coaster from Intamins early days (I wonder if Intamin wishes it could disown all of their early coasters), this ranks as the second most painful coaster I have ever been on. (The first was PKDs Outer Limits Flight of Fear, before they removed the over-the-shoulder restraints.) The ride started fine, with a good swooping drop into a vertical loop. After that, I cant tell you much. I know there were some more curves, drops, and a tunnel, but the majority of my time was spent concentrating on keeping my head from banging back and forth against the restraints. And I was not very successful. The head banging was constant and unrelenting. An 8 may seem like too high a rating after all of this complaining, but the coaster had a fresh coat of paint, the theming was good (themed to the Penguin, which is the only example I can think of where this villain gets his own ride), and, if you are familiar with my reviews at all, you know that I just cant knock any coaster too much (even though it knocked me quite a bit!).
