So you mean it looks like a decent coaster? ;)

You and me both, Andy.

Lindsay loved it though - right up there with Boulder Dash and Phoenix. Of course, she seems to like twisters much better than out n backs, so...

Did anybody notice that NOBODY raises his hands during the entire reverse POV and the offride?!
It really looks like the best coaster in the known solarsystem (even after watching the video only once!)
And I would have NEVER expected it to keep the speed until the very end.

Nobody has their hands up on the new wallpaper either, but they all appear to be smiling!

Proper riding position... no big deal.
However, I suspect I'll be riding the same way with all those tunnels. ;)

Don't be surprised if they were instructed not to do so for "legal" reasons.

This is no joke:
That is the first ride video I have ever seen, online or on tape, that made me want to acutally go to travelocity and book airfare immediately.
I have a newborn coming June 1st. If I didn't I'd be coming up.
THAT is what a rollercoaster should be.

The anticipation of Saturday has now hit an alltime high. It's my new #1, I hope I'm not underestimating it.

No one has their hands up probably becuase they told them not to. If no one has their hands up people will be like "Whoa, no one has their hands up on that coaster, it must be really scary". Discovery/Travel Channel tells you not to during their shoots. If it were for legal reasons then people wouldn't be allowed on regular operating days.

^ Do what I'm thinking of doing with my 8-month old....put him (or her) in a backpack. ;)

Well, supposedly the wife is buying a Baby Bjorn...which is some kind of carrying thing. Is that an approved on-ride apparatus?
But I'm not kidding. I would have made arrangements to be there in the next few weeks if it were at all possible (and didn't involved what would surely be a messy divorce). That ride looks THAT impressive to me.
Holiday World just keeps on delivering.

Other parks have a no-hands-up policy for any official footage or pictures. They have little control over what people do any other time, but they won't allow those individuals to participate if they break the rules.

This thing looks awsome now, can you imagine what it will look like in a few years once the trees have had a chance to fill back in around the turn-around?
