Haven't been on that one, but I did go to Expoland in Osaka and ride the Orochi, which is also a B&M coaster much like the Pyrennes. For me, Raptor at Cedar Point is the best B&M I've experienced, though. I thought the Japanese ride (Orochi) was a bit too hurky-jerky. It hurt my head and back a bit. I'm wondering if the Pyrennes coaster and Orochi at Osaka Expoland are clones of each other. They do look very much alike.

Actually, I believe that Pyrennes is an original design. Orochi appears to be almost exactly like Raptor at CP. In fact, I believe that they are clones.

Yes, Orochi is in fact, a clone of Raptor at Cedar Point. You get a gold star! :)

That's funny, because they don't FEEL anything alike when you're riding them. I absolutely love Raptor, but I didn't enjoy Orochi at all.

Actually, not to get technical, but isn't Orochi a mirror image of raptor?
