But anyways the whole day I kept an eye on TTD. They were testing it, and sometimes it would rollback but then around 7:30 we started seeing hands up on the ride so we raced over there and got in line. It only took an 1 1/2 hrs to the station. My brother and I got in the second row, but then after about 2 hours of uninterrupted operation the train in front of us rolled back so we had to get out. The station and everyone outside were going crazy. There was so much energy and adrenaline and everyone was cheering hoping the train would make it. I have never see such a large group of strangers enjoying the moment and people were just there to watch the ride. It is really hard to describe...I guess you just had to be there. Then we got back on .. ARMS DOWN.. HEAD BACK...120MPH!!!
This was the most amazing feeling I have ever had on a ride..we went so fast but suddenly we lost momentum and we didn't make it over the hill. It was kinda cool free falling back and they had to try again. While waiting for the train to reverse like 1 mph, people outside the ride came up to us and others on the train asking about the ride..the speed.. falling back. We were like celebrities and all of sudden we were off again and this time we made it and it was such a rush! TTD is the so worth the wait (and the drive)and CP has really outdone themselves. Tidbit: I don't know how many people watch or used to watch WWF but I remember a couple years ago when I used to watch there was a character named Tori, well anyways right after we got off TTD she and a group of friends got on through the exit. All in all a great first trip to CP and I hope to be back again next year.
Keep your Head back, arms down and hold on!
