This is an extraordinarily
brilliant ride. The theming is interesting, you have to queue five
minutes max and it is very intense and very fast. I think that it is
very different to any other ride that I have ridden.
It isn't similar to vortex at all.
Vortex just seems a blur, whereas on this, you can see how high you are
and you really feel the speed. This is much better than Slammer because
the queue is shorter, and it is much better: On slammer you sit down,
you pull your harness down then your lap bar.
Staff then push these down so tight,
that your back seems to crack. After a very long time of waiting, the
stupid aaaaa, aah, aaaaaa, stlye music come on and you veeeeeeery slowy
get pulled up. You think great, this is going to be fast and fun, but
you will get let down in both. You slowly tilt forwards or backwards and
start too spin. This is a painful experience as the breast shaped
harness digs deep into your shoulders.
excruciatingly painful. You then stop and the same happens the other
way. You now stop and very slowly drop down and that is it. I found this
a bit of a let down, and I think that it should go much faster, so that
you can actually feel some G-Force.
On Rush you simply sit down, lower your
lap bar and off you go. You really feel exposed, almost as if you are
flying. The ride then stops and you think, bloody hell that was good,
and do this for another 5 times. The forwards drop feels similar to
Oblivion and the swoop feels like the great feeling of speed on RITA.
The best bit is where you fall backwards as the airtime is immense.
Overall, a great, simple and very fun experience. Also a good theme
