Busch Gardens Tampa has released a point-of-view video that shows how their new ride, with an elevator lift, runs with riders forward, backward and spinning.

I like how it goes in stages. Forwards, backwards, then free spinning. I think I'd be okay on this one due to the small amount of spinning.

I do okay on the ones like Waldameer and Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Spinning Mice, and whatever that thing at Hopi Hari is called. But the Pandemoniums at SF parks and Mall Of America can make me quite nauseous. Like either skip it or last ride of the day nauseous.

I don't ever seem to get queasy on spinning coasters - I think it's due to the fact that there's a defined orientation of travel. Tea Cups or Tilt-a-Hurls, yeah, those can get me nauseous pretty easily.

...and then there was SCAT II at Beech Bend...

But Cobra's Curse looks like a lot of fun, and a completely new coaster for the US. Glad it's so close to home!

Yeah I'm not into SCAT, so that would make me vomit...

That's a weird POV. I wanna sit in that front car that disappears then comes back, then disappears then comes back...

It's an interesting concept for sure. I wonder what kind of hourly capacity it will have both with all of those moving parts, as well as the notoriously slow dispatch times BGT coasters have.
