SROS at Darien Lake

Tuesday, August 7, 2001 3:17 PM
I know that the SROS in NE is absolutely incredible, (or so I have heard)but how does the Darien Lake one stack up? Is the airtime comparible to MF? Are the Helices intense? Is it lacking anything?

I only live like 2 hours away, and I really want to ride this!
Someone lay down the skinny of this ride.

Although I can't compare with SFNE's and MF... it has great airtime and speed.. and if its a humid day out the mist is an added plus as it lingers over the lake. The first helix is pretty intense, and the second one is a little bit "boring" but thats just to prepare you for the bunny hops :)

For floating air check out the front, for powefull, forcefull air, check out the back.

I don't get any airtime because i push down the restraint as far as I can ;)

The first helix IS intense, sometimes I have a hard time keeping my hands up. My friend summed it up perfectly:

"I felt out of control. I couldn't scream, I couldn't breathe, all I could do was cry and drool with a smile on my face."

Mr. chu - it is indeed a great coaster; I even prefer it to Millennium Force. It may also well be my favorite night ride of them all ...

I have know just done all 3 and i will say that darien's is good but it just can't compete with the other 2. MF is a monster in height and speed. NE's as the mist tunnels and those great helixes. They just need to build something else there! Darien's SROS is still worth the 2 hr. drive though.

I've been on Darien Lake's SROS and it's not a bad ride. SFNE's version is better but you still get airtime and the helixes are not bad either.
