All it seems to do is meander after the lift.

It's a shame it's not running the way it was designed to.

Didn't you forget the winkie face, kpjb?

But now that you mention it...

I hope that awful background music isn't played on the ride.

Maybe they bought a sound system from Six Flags Magic Mountain?

Haven't heard that much shredding since the 80s.

And everyone knows the 80's were awesome.

Maybe if they removed a few of those brake fins I would like it more.

It does look like it goes "back and forth" quite a bit. All of a sudden I have the urge to listen to Aaliyah's 1994 debut album.

It makes me want to whip my hair back and forth.

The "real" POV has arrived. (Note: this is with an empty train and according to Chris Grey, a fully loaded train is about 9 seconds faster from top of lift to brake).

It looks fun and all, but there are lots of straight bits of track.

Nothing wrong with that.

I don't see much straight track at all; except for the (first of two!) station fly-by. Coaster actually looks like a lot of fun.

"Twisties" are overrated.

^I agree! As much as I love Voyage, a few of those drawn out or flat sections are always nice.

I just love the twistyness of GCIs. Sure it'll be a great ride.

One of the coolest parts of Roar, in my opinion, is the section of covered straight track halfway through the ride. It's unexpected. I also dig the section after the zero-g on Great Bear for the same reason. I wouldn't necessarily say twisties are overrated, but I would argue that straight track is underrated.
