Tina...Scat 2 is insane! I thought the ride op was never going to stop it. It ranks 2nd only to Catwoman's Whip at SFNO for "rides that came closest to making me hurl in '04" (hmm...should I start a new topic on that?).
If you like your flats to make you feel like you took a detour to the Jim Beam plant on the way to BB, then it's the ride for you. Good times.
thrillerman1 said: Has Zamperla built any spinning mouse coasters anywhere else? I searched RCDB and didn't come up with anything, but maybe I overlooked any they've built.
This was actually discussed a couple of weeks ago in this thread. It seems Zamperla now has a license to manufacture and sell Reverchon rides. The Zamperla ad that has been running in Amusement Today only shows the Reverchon spinning mouse, though. I'm curious to see if they will also offer the Reverchon glide (inverted mouse) coaster.
Back on topic, it sounds like I may have to check out Beech Bend in the near future. Can't wait to see what the GCI is like!
Beech Bend was a nice little detour on the way to Holiday World last year. It definitely needs a ride like this though. Their two current coasters left something to be desired.
SCAT 2, however, is without a doubt the craziest ride i have ever been on. Ive never felt forces on a ride like that, it was actually kind of painful. That many G's pushing you against a metal grate, kinda sounds like a torture device.
John, I was with Krypton (good to see you're still reading CBuzz, Chris) that day, and I think it was about 2.5 - 3hrs from BB to HW. Don't quote me though, I know it took 6.5hrs from ATL to HW though.
I will agree with everything said - SCAT 2 is OOC!!
