I think before it didn't go all the way down, it kinda bounced up and down. Now it just goes straight down to the bottom and back up a little.

Yah they did this I believe because of loading time, but from what I hear a lot of complaints (including me), were said, and they said they wanted it to be like it was before, so the'll make it how it used to be, before the summer I believe. Another reason why is because theres never a line for it anyway, so the loading isn't really affected by it. Trust me I experienced both, and even though it drops faster now, it still was better before, just cause of the bouncing affect, and u were up there more.

Yes, they did make a modification that killed most of the bounce you used to get, making it behave more like the ThrillShot rides. Hopefully they will put it back the way it used to be.

I am *pretty sure* these S&S rides get tweaked from time to time...Dr. Doom and the Double Shot at WA seem to have a little more KICK sometimes, and a little less at others. I KNOW this is true at WA, sometimes your feet go right over your head....gotta love that!

I really hope they didn't do anything drastic to my favorite S&S tower! Is the shot down still as good on the yellow tower? Sure hope so.
About S&S's...for the most part they feel the same to me all the time. But CP's and WAd's (lol, wad) I have felt differences in. CP's changes almost weekly! One visit the shot side can give EXTREME air, and the next visit I won't even lift outta my seat. Strange phenomenon. Still love the S&S's more than the Intamins though (save Acro, nothing beats Acro!).
