I believe the height requirement is less than 52" so I would think your young ones would be able to ride.
The coaster has OSTR's and there can be a bit of roughness in some of the inversions, but I don't think it's as bad as some people make it out to be. I thought it was a great coaster.
I would assume you'll also check out the themepark at Circus Circus, Speed: The ride (a launched coaster) and some of the great SIM rides at Luxor, Caesar's, and the LV Hilton.
I'd rather die living than live like I'm dead
I was a bit underwhelmed by Manhattan Express. It didn't quite succeed as either a hyper or an inverter. For me, it was a pretty strong head banger, though I've ridden worse.
"ok everyone go ahead and pull down on your shoulder restraint so you feel nice and stuck!"
Women was god's second mistake.
Well, ... it's really not worth it. Bumpy, boring, painful, ugly. It's really one of the worst coasters I've ever ridden. I gave it 2 trys, about 3 years apart. What were TOGO thinking. It may be OK to watch, but that's about it. I think it was $7 when I first rode it and like $10 the second time. Ouch!
But I loved King Kobra at PKI, why'd they get rid of that so fast...?
Vekomember is from Holland, ishn't zaht veerd?
Does this thing go faaaaaast!
It was TWELVE bucks just two days ago, and even though the "twist and dive" is cool, I actually thought it worked better on Viper (SFGAdv). The upstops and road wheels need some tighter springs IMO, as the riders take some pretty jarring *hits*, esp. during the first drop. The best part of the coaster, other than the very cool helix finale, is when you get out at the station and yell "I survived!"....WAY too rough, mostly BAD trains I thought. On my second spin - free, thanks to Desperado....(damn you Buffalo Bill, lol)...I got a much better ride with a British enthusiast...Vegas was overrun by the "Redcoats"....made me wonder who really won the War of 1812, lol. After knowing the layout and the rough spots (whole ride), I managed to brace myself appropriately and still found it pretty painful...but at least more liveable....
bill (subliminal guy)....LOVED the whole Coney Island theme upstairs....here's to ALL the old parks of NYC, the original proving ground for coasters....
I've traded in my 2000 Giovanola for a 2002 Arrow X4D :)
My other car is now an Arrow X4D!
