Some really great photos, and the video showed some pretty cool vantage points of the inversions. (And the lauch part was cool too! :))

The hardest part was getting a clean recording of the "Now get ready. Here we go!" thing. People nearby kept yelling and screaming to riders on the train.
Probably the first time I've gotten kind of annoyed while filming/photographing rides :)

Best ride in the park if you ask me. Cool video and awsome pics. Probably the best parts of the ride is the launch and the zero-g roll (especially in the front seat :) )

You can really tell in that video how insane the "snake dive" element is....
Funny how exciting it looks when it is actually operating >:O

:) Thanks, Andy.
The barrel roll/snake dive combo is the "money" on this ride. I said it in my TR, but your ass leaves the seat at the top of the hill into the barrel roll and doesn't touch again until the pullout on the snake dive. Good stuff and probably the longest I've been out of my seat on a coaster.
