I got a mention, woo! Ha.
Just picking up on what Mike said regarding Superman TE at SFMM. The launch on the Dreamworld ride is bizarre, but I think - mainly because of how I am accustomed to the more modern launches on Accelerators.
The ToT launch is pretty long, about six seconds and it feels like it comes in two bursts - maybe the centre magnets are not active? You get a pretty decent launch out of the station - then it feels as if you're cruising a long the track, and then maybe 70ft from the tower - you feel another burst.
They said they're going to 'get it back up to full speed' - but we'll see, it may still feel tame.
