Does anyone notice how different Raging Bull can look like from out-side and inside the park? I'm talking about when you pull into the park (we usually go the alternate way, driving under the American Eagle) and then you drive right past Raging Bull...it looks so small and compact from the parking lot. But then you get inside the park and see it from the other direction, and it's really long.
Has anyone else noticed this? Maybe on any other coasters?

I usually enter the park from the back entrance, and no one hasever noticed this. We will have to look next time we go.

You have a good point Glitch01, I've noticed that too. It does seem to look a little smaller when you come in that way. Not only the Raging Bull, but the Giant Drop looks smaller too. The American Eagle seems to look larger then it really is when you come in that way.

Driving past the park on 94 approaching the Grand Avenue exit, Bull does not look as long or big as when your first approach Southwest Territory. American Eagle seems longer with the helix right next to the highway.
Good observations, everyone.
Some things you just can't change...SO DEAL WITH IT! (my slogan for 2001)

Golioath is the same. As soon as you get in line for it all of a sudden it looks 300 ft tall.

I think raptor is the same way. When you walking down the midway you definatly see it but to me it look smaller than it is. Once your riding it though it seems like it is a lot longer.
