 Review of Top Gun @ Knotts Great America
0 Rating Posted by: biosciking on 6/25/2006 4:15:00 PM
Arguably Paramounts Great Americas most popular ride, I was interested to see if Top Gun, an early B&M inverted coaster, could measure up with the newer and bigger inverts of today. I was very impressed that it absolutely could. The ride was essentially a drop into a vertical loop, followed by a zero-g roll, then a wing over and a spiral. The first few elements took place all around the queue of the ride, while the wing over and spiral moved behind all of this to take place over a marshy pond. Being accustomed to no less than five inversions on a B&M invert, I thought three might be a little weak. But there was nothing weak about this ride. It is incredible how much of a punch these coasters pack. They are intense and forceful, but smooth and comfortable at the same time. The final portion of the ride, over the pond, was quite extreme. I was completely satisfied with this one, and I did not feel it was missing anything. Good job, Top Gun! Great theming as well.
