This coaster is GREAT ... in fact, I will dare to say that it is/will be one of the best CCIs on the planet. Now, understand that I road this coaster on the final day of testing and also on its opening day, so the ride changed drastically between rides as it got more broken in. The air time is already very strong and the laterals are better and more effective than those on THE LEGEND. The way this wraps around the park and envelopes other rides make it very unique, and, at night, the first half is a darkness run of a typical night coaster, but the second half is totally unique and speical as the coaster is met with a furry of lights from the lit-up spinning flat rides it envelopes. Im giving it a ten partially because I can tell what this coaster is going to be once its broken in. My final rides on Saturday were a 9 ... BUT, the crew was adding the lift steels to the ride during the week which will only add to the already strong air time and make the coaster even faster (keep in mind, its already running MUCH faster than what CCI had originally designed it for). In addition, once the coaster gets about 6,000 laps on it (which will prolly be sometime early next summer), then it will be even faster and an even stronger coaster. Im giving this review based on what I know this coaster will be like given time ... and I promise to update my review if this doesnt happen when I ride the coaster next season. In all honesty, if youre an coaster enthusiast of any kind, or someone who loves rides like THE CORNBALL EXPRESS or THE RAVEN or THE LEGEND, do not miss this coaster. Stop out on your way to one of the Texas parks or Six Flags Magic Mountain or Knotts in California, this coaster is worth taking some time and enjoying ... its an incredible ride!
