Firehawk and Large People

Wednesday, July 4, 2007 10:41 PM
Just got back from PKI, No I mean KI and was totally surprised that I actually was able to ride Firehawk. For the one's not privileged to have met me, I am not an "average sized person." Dragster, Maverick or any B&M's will be on my track record anytime soon. I am hoping to change that in the near future.

The instillation of X-Flight at KI wasn't a big driving force to me visiting this season. Actually the only reason I even tried to ride was that Judy wanted the coaster credit. It was the first thing we did this morning and I am glad we tried. The restraints are quite comfortable and very forgiving in allot of ways that most are not.

The ride was worth the 40 minute wait and the crew seemed to be dispatching the trains pretty well. It really fits in to the location and I hope they can get some landscaping in the area of the ride. It really needs trees and shrubbery to make the flying experience even better.

So if I can ride Firehawk, I am looking forward to Carrowinds and Six Flags America...

Note: The neutered Sonny is actually giving an enjoyable ride experience...

I think you meant to say *NOT* on your track record, right??

Btw, I'm not a large person, but I still think Maverick is very, very roomy, and so you might be ok there!

Your correct about the "NOT", but was at Cedar Point two weeks ago and Judy got the credit, not me.

The Vekoma Flyer restraints are some of the most forgiving restraints in the biz.

Most Vekoma restraints on any of their coasters are pretty roomy even for the larger guests.

Deja-Vu will accomodate alot of people.
