I do like the ride, but
came off thinking it wasn't perhaps up to CCI's normal standards. It has
some nice elements, it just isn't quite as frantic as any of their other
rides. That said, it far exceeds any GCI junk.
I know what you mean, but
I don't think it was accidental that it is a much calmer ride. There is
more of a selection of elements, it doesn't just concentrate on airtime.
I like that, and therefore like the ride.
It is a long ride, perhaps
too long. I like it - the racing element is fantastic and it is a nice
introduction to what wooden roller coasters are like.
I think Stampida benefits
from not being as extreme as other roller coasters. As a result, this roller coaster
is perfect for kids and those who find other coasters too threatening.
it's amazingly fun - fast, twisted, varied and exciting. The section
when the two trains pass each other head on has to be the best moment...
if in doubt, ride!!! You won't regret it!
