Sream opening day. Right when the gates open we were off and let me tell you, this was one of the worst runs I have ever experianced. It's soooooooo far away! So about 2 mins of running, clutching the side of my stomach and dying, I got on the 2nd/3rd train of Scream, 6th row(I think).

Now the ride is fun, but it felt like I was on one of those vibrating chairs. It was rattling and rough. I was like, wait B&M did make this right? Why the uncharacteristic roughness? So still in shock, I returned later that night. Went on the last row outside seat. Man did this puppy deliever. Completely smooth throughout. Probably the best zero-g roll I've ever experianced. Cobra roll was great. The drop after the mid-couse was fun, I'm a sucker for post mid-course drops (not sure why). I just loved the turn before the interlocked corkscrews. It's very close to the ground. Scream was a suprising walk-on after that so I hit it 2 more times before closing.

Anyways, I suggest taking the back on Scream because every other row I went on was like my first ride. Including the very front. However I still found the other rows to be fun. It's simillar to going on the front of Ghostrider first and realizing the back is much better. Also a huge thing to note is that the queue is short in length. There are no switchbacks and just goes straight, stairs and aisles for rows. So don't get discouraged if the line is out in the small plaza. But of course like most beemers the capcity is great.

Coming soon reports from BGT, IOA, BGW and SFOG. Later

I can assure you, from talking to ride manufacturers. They build what the parks ask them to build. Very rarely does a park simply present a plot of land, and tell the manufacturer to scare the people good, and leave it at that.


never met a coaster I didn't ride (except Junior Geminii) :(

Calm down Sam, he was just kidding. Siwwy Sam ;/

Anywho, very nice review. I haven't ridden any Floorless Coasters yet, but they sound like a blast to ride. It seems that many people say the front is best because you feel like your feet are going to hit the track, but the back also seems like a good seat through the Zero-G and Cobra Roll because the front of the train probably pulls you through the element. I guess you'd have to ride a floorless in both seats to see what is better. Darn ;)

Nice Ride Review!
