Dark Knight Review (Possible Spoilers)

For SFGAm, the two mice are different. The layout is a little different, but that's not even the big deal. The thing is one spins, and one doesn't spin at all. I don't like the spinning mice as I love to ride Mullholland Madness, and Cheetah Chase rather than Ragin Cajun.

So, you go mouse and mouse. I go spinning mouse, and non-spinning mouse. I go bad for me (Ragin Cajun), and great for me (Cheetah Chase, or now the Dark Knight).

Its hard to believe theres still the SFGA confusion....

No confusion. It's just relevant because Great America's Dark Knight is identical to Great Adventure's, and a review of theirs is essentially a review of ours.

There will be those (many I'd guess) who will recognize the similarity between the two mice at Great America. If TDK was an indoor Demon or Whizzer, people probably wouldn't notice. Guests will likely connect the fact that both Cajun and TDK have prolonged periods of hairpin turns.

Never Has Gravity Been So Uplifting.

Kinda Ka <3 love it said:
..."u know u would think that the money they used to build this they could have paid to get new flags in the kingda ka station that have the wrong height on it its not 458 its 456 damn it" -jen

actually, they measured the structure after it was built. It is 458. They just never changed all the PR materials.

I rode The Dark Knight. I liked it a lot. They had a short media thing Thursday and it opened to the public right afterward. This was one of those rare cases where the public was more critical than the enthusiasts. There were lots of people from the clubs and websites and they all seemed to like it but once the public got off, they all screamed that it sucked and they felt duped. What did they expect? Did they think Nitro would fit in that box? Do they think every single ride has to be a top-notch thriller? They don't get it - and they also lie. Some yelled "I waited two hours for that POS!" when the line was about 45 minutes.

lol well I agree but after riding the other coasters this will probably feel tame, the rest of the coasters in that area are pretty intense. But the lines seems to be surprisingly fast at a top wait I heard of 45 mins

EnthusiASSts are impossible to please. So, you have a nice, speedy well-themed mouse coaster for families.. and "the scenery goes by too fast".

So.. Memorial Day weekend.. the park ups the braking, and now the ride is "slow, boring, and overbraked".

You just can't win sometimes.

Simple Concept: If people want to look at the scenery more they can always ride it once then ride it again right after :)

Anyways, I'm still really excited for this new ride to come to SFGam. Along with probably about 15-20 other buzzers!

It's funny to me that there's already a family coaster in a box sitting right down the midway (Skull Mountain), except for it has a facade. Is the Dark Knight perhaps a bit superfluous when some parks have no family steel coasters? I'd like to think so.
