Togos always seem to get a bad rap, especially their stand-up coasters, but I have enjoyed the two that I have been on. In all honesty, I have enjoyed them more than the Bolliger and Mabillard ones that I have been on (blasphemy I know). Like Shockwave, Skyrider has an action-packed layout and is laced with crazy ejector air-time. I can see where some people would find this uncomfortable while standing up thanks to the restraints, but it did not bother me one bit and was incredibly thrilling. Plus the vertical loop is one of the most forceful I have experienced and even caused me to gray out slightly. My one complaint about the coaster is the trick track segment. The rest of the ride is really smooth (including the helix), but the trick track gives riders a violent jolt to the side like a haymaker from George Foreman. I still recommend Skyrider, but just be prepared for this part.
I had mixed feelings riding Sky Rider. During some parts this actually was really fun and smooth, like during the intense loop and the drops, which actually gave some terrifying air time. However, there were those moments that these "Togo torture devices" are known for. I was praying for mercy during the helix and the horrid attempt at trick track gave me a huge bruise. If it werent for that menacing helix and trick track, this actually would be quite fun and a good coaster, but sadly they really do ruin the experience enough to pull the whole rating down to a 3.
I dont absolutely despise Togo stand-ups, but they do have their problems. The first drop was fun and the loop was excellent because it was very forceful. However, the helix and trick track were really rough and painful. The bunny hill though were fun, as I got some good air time.
This ride delivers a rough beating. I liked the hop at the end, but otherwise the shaky head banging ride is not so great.
Sky rider is 88 feet tall and is a togo standup. Honestly for short people this ride sucks! The head padding is so far up that your either having lots of fun if your tall or your smacking your head on metal if your short! The drop is very intense though and the helix is fun. The bunny hills at the end have some great airtime but kind of hurt because of the restraints. I give it a 6 for being slightly fun but rough and very uncomfortable!
Another piece of crap Togo Standup that I merely rode because I needed something to do. Much like its Kings Dominion cousin, it was rough and not too exciting. The loop was about the only thing going, but the combination of a killer helix and that aweful attempt at a trick track hurt me way too much, but if this helps it feel better, Sky Rider was better than Shockwave @ PKD. These Togo stnadups need to burn to the ground with their aweful restraints and horrible roughness.
The Skyrider is a steel stand up roller coaster. It was built in 1985 by Togo. It is 92' tall, it is 2,210' long, it is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a long duration, and a large capacity.
Rough, long lines, massive load times, and isnt exactly the most exciting lay-out ever. The bunnyhops are good, and the loop is intense, but not the greatest stand-up ever.
CRAP. especilly for short people and skinny people.
but the thrills arent bad. wonderland needs to get rid of it and get a new B&M stand up. (like mantis) its not worth a wait longer then 15 mins (i waited about 1 hr the first time)
The air in the back is fun but the positives in the loop arent.
