Tell me about the Great Bear in Detail. Is it fun? Is it good? Is the coaster in a good location? What are some of the elements like? Why is there a turn before the big drop? Tell me all you know about the Great Bear.
edit: yay! in before close. Boy, Userx, you need to study the TOS, I just looked at your first posts, and you've yet to learn the ropes round here! *** Edited 3/24/2004 10:03:46 PM UTC by TeknoScorpion***
Peabody, I think it's fun too. And I think it's good. Do you think it's really good? I think it might be really good but I don't know if it's really good because no one else told me enough about it. It could be really fun but it would it have to be really good in order to be really fun? You tell me.
Actually, the funny thing is...This is really fun and really good. What does everyone think? Can it be really fun and really good? Post what you think.
The helix before the drop is bizzare, the drop is decent, the vertical loop and diving loop combo is the highlight of the ride, and the ending sucks. Overall a good coaster, but you shouldnt be going to HP to ride Great Bear, you should be going there to ride the trio of GCIs the park has. Great Bear is a bonus.
It's a very underrated ride. I thought it was better then the other invert in Pennsylvania. The helix is fun and I like how it goes over the water. While it might not be the best coaster at Hersheypark, it's still a fun ride.
Bill, I'm right there with ya, I love the speed run over the water, too. That, to me, is the most unexpected part of the ride. Also, I'm a HUGE fan of straight track on a coaster. Great Bear, Roar, S:RoS, Kumba...all of them have excellent sections of straight 'speed' track.
