Well we finally went to Orlando and it was storming when we got there. By the time we got to the hotel, it cleared up so we went to IOA.

This park is amazing! Not is it only clean and pretty, the rides are great. I will start by reviewing the rides we went on for three days straight.

Hulk-I had high hopes for this coaster, and they barely met them. The launch is simply incredible, but I didn't get much airtime and the ride is too short. The launch makes up for it.
Rating-3.5

Jurrasic Park River Adventure-THis ride is not scary, not realistic, and not long. Of course, I didn't say it wasn't entertaining and the drop is great!
Rating-3.5

Dudley Do Right's Ripsaw Falls-A competeter to Splash Mountain and this well over passes it. The ride has a good story, and the final drop is simply unbelievable.
Rating-4.5

Dueling Dragons-
Fire-I like this one better because I got good air and it had great G's. Rating-4
Ice- I really didn't care to much for the Ice but the dueling effect is pretty good.
Rating-2.5

Cat in the Hat-I just did this for fun, and was quite surprised! Does this one have similar technology to Spiderman?
Rating-3.5

Spiderman-This ride is truly a one-of-a-ind experience! The graphics are great, the ride is creative, and the effects are brilliant. My favorite overall ride of all time!
Rating-5+

Popeye and Bluto's Barge Raft Ridges- This is a great raft ride with a great finish.
Rating-4

The park is great, and surprisingly, my favorite island to just walk around in was Suess Landing.
The most relaxing land was Jurassic Park, and the most fun iland was Toon Lagoon.
Rating-5

We hit Sea World Florida on Saturday to fing surpisingly short lines.

Journey to Atlantis- The first part of the ride is annoying, but the first drop is fun and the roller coaster part was great. That women's laugh was really annoying!
Rating-4

Kraken-This ride is great to look at, and even better to ride! The drop has great airtime and is nice and long!
Rating-5

Here are the top five of my Orlando vacation.
1. Spiderman
2. Karken
3. Dudley Do Right's Ripsaw Falls
4. Fire Dragon
5- Jurassic Park River Adventure

Sea World Rating-4.5

Bye!

Dude, Kraken over hulk!!! that is just wrong, plain wrong. Hulk is completely unique and much more intense than Kraken. The launch is possible the best beginning to any roller coaster in the world except maybe MF's 300 foot drop.

Cool trip.

One thing I don't understand is when People comment on the length of Hulk. It's got a launched lift hill, zero-g roll, cobra roll, TWO vertical loops, a mist filled tunnel, TWO corkscrews, a few helices, an awesome quick change in direction, and some other twist and turns. What more do you want?

Hulk could have used one more corkscrew or a tight helix. Karken had the underground tunnel, which fely really relaxing from the Florida sun.

Did you ever stop and think, B&M loopers are not made for airtime?

I'm pretty small, so the restarints don't go all the way down on me, so I got airtime.

I'm 6' 1' 170#, my cousin is 6' 4" 250, we BOTH got a ton of air on Fire Dragon. CGoose, I, like you, was a little let down by Hulk, and found Kraken to be near perfection (if a little tame). For me, Hulk had poor pacing. From the launch to the 1st vertical loop was fine. After that though, I could have read a newspaper.

--who wonders why Chang is the only Green B&M he really liked (Kraken is turquoise :))
