Is there anything i can do to make it more exciting. I will be going to the point opening weekend. After the first drop it is pretty boring. In the past i have tried counting sheep, turning my head around, etc. But in the end i am just wasting my time. Is there any tricks to make a boring ride more exciting?
Ah...our beloved Beat Tamer. It is so painfully obvious that you're mad that everyone is pissing on SOB so now you try to turn the tables by dissing a ride that is actually smooth, fast, fun, and infinitely rerideable.
Nice try, BT!
Inn befour clothes! ;)

Some people think MF has no air or whatever, but that is only sometimes true. In mid-summer when it gets super hot, MF goes faster and is an excellent ride. If you ride first thing in the morning in May, it is a completely different ride. A July night ride after it has been warming up all day in the front seat...well let's just say it blows away both Beast and his little brat.
Edit: I forgot to add that MF on a bad day still has more air than Beast and SoB combined. :) *** Edited 4/12/2005 11:50:45 PM UTC by RavenTTD***

It's funny you should say that. I was underwhelmed by the two rides I've taken on MF. Guess when I took them? Yep, on an early May morning. I'll be back for more in late June this time though. I'm looking forward to that front row ride.;)
Yeah, that is where the fanboys have the advantage. ;) We ride all summer so we get the good rides, but coaster enthusiasts just come when the crowds are light and get the ho-hum rides. On a fast ride there is good floating air on the large hill to the island, and strong floater/ejector air on the return hill and bunny hop, not to mention the rear seat air down the first hill. You still would like a bit more, but it is a great ride.
Millennium Force is the my favorite coasters. You seem to like really rough coasters. The Force isn't rough.
What's great about it is it's amazing first drop, but also going from freefall to 4.5 g's around the first turnaround in just a few seconds.
Sit in the back seat, and it is a blast being whipped around each overbanked turn. I've noticed that the overbanks on MF are MUCH better than the 1 on S:ROS at NE.
I like S:ROS, for it's size it's perfect but it doesn't have that great of a drop and it's not fast enough for me. Sure, the airtime is good, but I prefer the speed and floater are time on Millennium Force.
I rode Millennium Force at night last year in the back seat. The ride was incredible, I was getting so much airtime, the g's were great, and as soon as we got past the bunny hop the fireworks from the laser show went off.
I don't think coasters can get much better than a bigger Millennium Force.
If that doesn't thrill you, and you like it rough, I'm sure that the WWF would love to have you. Or just jump out of a plane. The parachute would probably take away the thrill though so we not just forget that piece of equipment?
PS Have you ever sat in the backseat on the Force or any Hyper and looked backwards. Just do it. You'll like it.
