Is Cobra at La Ronde the only Intamin Standup in North America? How does Cobra compare to a typical B&M Standup? Is Cobra fun?

Batman: The Escape at Six Flags Astroworld is also an Intamin stand-up coaster.

Ask yourself this. Can you spell "candidates"?
/forgive me if there's some sort of sarcasm in your sig that I'm not getting... ;)

Intamin Standup Count: 3
In North America: 2 current (Batman: The Escape & Cobra @ LaRonde)
Across the pond: 1 (Shockwave @ Drayton Manner)
Round 1 - Shockwave @ SFMM -> Shockwave @ SFGAdv -> Batman: The Escape @ SFAW
Round 2 - Stand Up @ Skara Sommarland (Sweden) -> Cobra @ LaRonde
So in reality there have been only three Intamin Standups anywhere, two clones and one original. All three still exist, only one at its original location.
(in depth much?)

It is pretty fun, but it's really rough. If you don't wantt o get your temples red, you have to stick your head out of the OSTR the whole ride... But its fun!

Batman the Escape has a brilliant layout (very much like a B&M), but wow do the restraints hurt! You do more headbanging than at a Slayer concert. It's like the OTSR is made out of concrete.

My lapbar was loose on MF and I stood up by accident...does that count? ;)
...and does it matter what their names are? Just as long as one of them replaces the *evil doers* in the white house. ;)

Cobra was extremely rough, it really bashed me around. It was a very fun ride nonetheless though. One thing that I was surprised about that ride was the fact that the ops didn't even check the harnesses; they didn't say when they were going to lock them either. I didn't feel too safe.
