I mean it's the longest ride in the world, is 300 ft. tall, goes 95 mph, has some wicked looking turns, and has like 6 bunny hops at the end and has never been ranked even as a top 10 ride.
Just wondering to anyone who has ridden it if it's good?
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.

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?
I'd rather die living than live like I'm dead

MF is still the best!!!!!
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.
I'm just thinking of my mom, who just turned 50, and rides /everything/. We're actually going down to hit up The Voyage this weekend and TTD is in her top 10.
She'd be sad and probably quite disgruntled.
^ THAT would be something, and I can virtually guarantee you'll never find a *Cause of Death* listed as old age ANYWHERE.
DBH has an entry in Guinness for "oldest coaster train", based on average age....IIRC, it was around 77 years for the average rider.
