Not me! If the most intense launch in the world and the most severe ejector air (in the back) doesn't do anything for you, I don't think any coaster will thrill you!

You also must remember that Hypersonic is a prototype, built originally for behind the S&S factory in Utah. I was with a group of a dozen or so coaster nuts that couldn't stop raving about Hypersonic after we rode it. Then we thought, what will the production models be like? Especially since Stan Checketts was quoted as saying he is building one soon that will go "way" over 100mph.

Nope, and the crest of the big hill, especially in the back, gives some of the most extreme air time EVER. It's like you are being ripped out of the train with amazing force. (The back seat of Jackrabbit doesn't even come close)
The restraints can be seen here:

CoasterFreak11, if you have already ridden it, than why do you wanna know if it is worth the wait?!

If FoF got that great of a makeover than why can't I?

I was wondering that too....
Are you sure you have ridden it? I'm not accusing you of anything, but I still can't understand how it "didn't do anything for you". That ride gives a whole new definition to intensity!

Honestly, I,d say it's worth the wait. It's completely unique, and one of a kind.. Its worth it..
