Now with the Millennium Flyers trains it doesn't seem as aggressive as it was with the PTC's(maybe because of the roughness,) but to me it makes it just an all out fun ride. I did notice a lot of shuffling riding in the back seat, but overall it makes the ride so much smoother then it used to be.
In other words, it will only get better from here.
Bolliger/Mabillard for President in '08 NOT Dinn/Summers
Can''t wait to ride it myself.
As wildcat is my fav woodie, I just hope it's as intense as ever, and ill be happy.
I'd like to see a nice gallery from Hershey's opening weekend.
I am looking forward to riding it for sure though, even though I still hope for some "aggressive" shuffle ;)
I love the new trains .. But not on the Wildcat. The ride is now too much like Lightning Racer, which raises the question, if you ride one, why bother riding the other ? The part that really gets me is that the matchbox-style trains worked for 10 years and now all of a sudden they feel the need to change things up. My most famous saying around here is you don't fix what isn't broken. The idea behind the WC was to create a cyclone type twister, which they did perfectly. Now, with the new trains, you have a really tamed little kitty. This notion of coasters being to rough is something I just can't relate too. I want banged around a little bit, especially on a ride that's supposed to do such a thing. HP has made a lot of decisions that have hit the jackpot, however this wasn't one of them.

I'm glad the WC has Flyer trains now, can't wait to ride it with 'em. One thing for sure, they look better and tear up the track less.
And a biggie for me at least, they are much much much more comfortable than PTC's. This is my opinion only - the new PTC lap bars (well, guess they're not new anymore) make me feel totally PINNED to my seat (I know the pop term is stapled, but I think PINNED is more appropriate).
I would modify the lap bars if I could, but these Flyer trains are roomier and just more comfortable. Not to mention just beautiful.
Now if the WC had PTC's with buzz bars, then it might be slightly different...
