The inverted PATRIOT delivers two minutes and 18 seconds of the ultimate amusement park adventure by exposing riders to height, speed and a seamless transition of gravity-defying elements. Hanging beneath the track, thrill-seekers climb a 149-foot lift hill, then plunge down a 123-foot curved drop reaching a speed of nearly 60-MPH. Riders are disoriented as they fly through seven gravity-defying elements, including an 89-foot vertical loop, a zero-gravity roll, an Immelmann loop, an inclined banked curve, an s-curve, a corkscrew, and a high-speed spiral.
^Tuan, I was actually referring to the LaRonde one. Maybe I was just jumping the gun? I have no insider info on that project, in fact, I just first even heard the rumor today. However, there are a lot of signs pointing to *something* large, so who knows.
Just the thought of getting two of my all time fav type of coaster is getting me giddy, though. :)
No interlocking loops. :( Oh well. Glad WOF is getting another nice coaster. I may start buying a season pass again. I really like the drop over the station and the various curves/dips instead of consecutive inversions.
This coaster has kick though. If the speed at which is traverses the track is similar to what is shown in the video, I think we have a batman/montu contender here. Plus..PLUS..it has the roar....hooray!!
I'm in no way upset that it isn't a clone. Congrats to Cedar Fair for a great layout, original name and color scheme. I was just wondering why it wasn't a clone because it's something I would have expected (being that it IS so similar to Talon). ;)
IMO I find it funny how CF can make an almost complete clone of Talon and that's just fine and dandy. Yet if this was SF this ride would of been ripped to pieces by now. SFOG hyper has a great layout but since it was named Goliath and sported the same color scheme as SFMM Goliath, people are still bit*hing and complaining about it and that was what seven days ago. People are still bashing SF for cloning SFMM Goliath name and color scheme for SFOG. Yet CF can make an almost exact clone and everything is peaches and cream lol.
Anyways I'm not complaining because I happen to like Talon and this is a great addition to WOF IMO.
