Bizarro

I also rode SFNE's Bizarro on Thursday and I felt like the new trains were a disappointment. They just feel "loose" and tend to bounce around the track, whereas the old trains stayed planted. Sure, they're rattled a bit, but at least they were smooth.

The soundtrack was loud, pointless, and fairly corny ("if you do not leave, I will hurt people!"). The effects were alright in the daylight. I'm sure they'll be more impressive at night.

Yes, but I can cross about six or seven coasters off my list. Plus, I've ben trying to get there. I've been saving my change and might have enough to go by early August. Maybe my sister might come with.

I was at Great Adventure on Monday. As I was walking away from Bizzaro(I didn't ride it; I ain't waitin' over a hour to ride a painted Medusa.), a lady, with her 2 kids, asked me how the ride was, I told her exactly what I just typed; "It's Medusa, with a new paint job".

Her response, really!? The GP really can get suckered, can't they. She actually thought it was a new coaster.


Go figure. No wonder we enthusits call the rest of the GP "sheep." I take that back, I've actually seen smarter sheep. :)

I was at sfne on wen, and have a lot of complaints about the new restraint that the ride has.

The restraint only goes to the top of my legs just above my knees. It is very uncomfortable. Not only that, but they seem to love to staple people as well.

I came off with bruises on my legs.


what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

I believe the joke he was trying to make was that /literally/ hitting SFNE wouldn't make you feel any better. As in, punch/kick. :-D, and I agree.

I know. I got the joke Raven. Maybe I should hit Holiday World an deck Santa while I'm at it. :)

I should be able to take him in three rounds, after I give Rudolf a BLACK nose and punch his light out.

UPDATE:

Well, I DID hit SFNE on Jynly 5th. (see trip reports), and had a few questions from anybody who's ridden the one at SFGAm (aka Medusa) or the one at SFNE (fka SM: RoS).

In your opinion, did the transformation help or hurt RoS? Having never ridden Bizarro BEFORE, I belive that the ONLY effects they should added were the misters. The other sets and pass-through look cheesey and added-on, plus ugly when view from off the ride. The audio was muddled, and really didn't add anything for me.

I am a firm beliver that Bizaaro is the offspring of Magum and MF. It has the smoothness of MF and the boarderline painful sick air of Magnum.

I don't know about SFNE, but I was completely underwhelmed but the "improvements" to Medusa/Bizarro at SFGAdv.

The sets add nothing - you're traveling so fast you really can't see them, and from outside the coaster, it looks silly.

The audio - loud, blaring, and impossible to tell what's going on. I'm hoping in Bizarro 2.0 they give us an "Off" switch for the audio track.

The mist and flames - well, the mist will be nice when it's hot, and the flames will be nice if it's cold.

I give it two and half yawns.

I gotta agree with you about the audio. The mist IS nice and the fire's okay, but when you look at eveything else, such as the facads during the ride, it looks cheesey, especally from the backside wher the GP sees it the most.

The auger of doom is sweet, though.

The lights at night, the building scenery, the flames, the Auger of Death (whatever that is? - at least it's cooling!) - it all added up to an eenhanced experience in my book. Obviously the ride itself is the same, but I think most patrons appreciate the "upgrades" to Medusa. It was by no means Alpengeist-quality theme-from-the-beginning quality stuff, but overall I thought it improved the ride quite a bit. The audio (as you should expect from me) was too loud, though - you kids and your loud music. ;)


You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)

I actually couldn't hear any part of the audio from the top of the lift to the first set of brakes. Even on the MCBR when we should have been pretty quiet I didn't hear anything.
