Too bad it won't open for my spring break, I was really looking foward to it. But just to make sure, does anyone know if there will be a preview, or anything of that sort. Or maybe if they will do a soft opening in the comming three weeks...Sorry, I am letting my "hyper-optimism" take over my thoughts. But if you can respond to the following questions that would be great. Thanks.
Wow! Thanks, Swim! Now I am really excited. There was speculation that it would just be a few moderate launches from scene to scene, but it looks like it will be a lot more than that. Sounds like a genuine rollercoaster, tweaked Universal style! I can't wait. Luckily for me, I now live within a short drive of Hollywood. But for all you 'spring breakers,' I do feel your pain.
They probably don't even know yet.....and it's probably even in their best interest to not announce a firm date with all the last minute problems/tweaking that can go on. Sucks for us, but is reality :)
WARNING!! SPOILER!! Okay, I saw the CGI video, I don't get what you mean by a backward launch, Is it when you go through the mouth or when you enter the fake station. Im pretty sure that a backward launch means you get a launch that instead pushes u foward it takes u back. I didn't see it in the flick.
Yeah, i was kinda confused when I didn't see the backwards launch. I think a forward, reverse, then really powerful forward launch would be quite a rush. It could simulate a fight, or the mummy sucking in its breath or something. That would be awesome. *** Edited 3/2/2004 11:39:53 PM UTC by RollrCoastrCrazy***
So how forceful is the launch?? Oh yeah and from the general publics view of the ride/coaster, This lasy who i know was down there last week and she said she was terrified and it was a very good ride. So im assuming its gonna be a hit w/ the crowds.
And what a way to come back on the scene of coaster making Premier. By the way are they in anyway directly related to the six flags parks franchise cause i wonder why there isnt more of their coasters in virtually every six flags park being that it would still be under the same roof in a sense.
