If the search function was working I'd find my detailed TR.
4 or 5 of us on this site have ridden it. It's a great ride, and like most Japanese coasters, just doesn't get much chatter here in America to to geography. SD2K especially doesn't get much talk because it was SBNO for the ACE/EEC Japan trip, the TPR Japan Trip, etc.
Imagine a bigger, longer, better Steel Force/Mamba and that sums it up.
What are you talking about? Millennium Force has three inversions. ;)
I don't know if I'll ever get a chance to ride it, but SD2K has always fascinated me and the layout looks amazing. I've heard that the lift hill takes so long to climb that two trains are on it at one time. Is this true?
Redcoasterman: No, MF is not the best. Unless you've ridden both you can't say that. They're both great.
Gigafocre01: Trust me...they are opposites. 2 hyper/giga coasters could hardly be more different.
Machonachos: Correct..there are 2 seperate chains and it takes FOREVER to get up the hill.
CPLady: Correct, but not on SD2K. Certain Japanese coasters (Dodonpa, for example) have a 45 year age limit....but the Japanese are too polite to ask someone their age, so it is not actively enforced like carding someone to buy booze.
John: I suspect not, but as ULTRA safety conscious as they are, they likely want to take no chances. Like I said earlier, it isn't too strictly enforced. On the ACE/ECC Japan trip last year there were quite a few people over 45. In specific parks they were all "under 45" if you know what I mean :)
