Crowds: Deserted except Ravine Flyer II
Rides: Ravine Flyer II
Wait time: 8 years, ok 30 minutes
Finally, after waiting for eight years, I was able to get on the coaster that was talked about for so long. Ravine Flyer II was running only one train (Red) with about a thirty minute wait. The dispatch times were slow, but thats what's expected out of a new ride on its opening day. The ride itself is a winner. The lift hill view is absolutely breathaking, and the layout fits the area perfectly. The first drop swooped into a tunnel then over the road. There I found some great floater airtime, and it could have been ejector but my lap bar was pretty low. Then my favorite part, the s-curve up the second hill and through the lowest portion of the ride. The funniest part was when another person in my 14 person group in front smacked a bird by accident. The coaster didn't let up through the higher portion as much as I thought it would, and the 90 degree bank, in my opinion, was pretty neat in the sense that I was given the illusion my hands would hit the hand rail. After one more swoop down the hill, we made our way into the station.
Personally, I was very surprised with Ravine Flyer II. Especially the sense of speed. Waldameer, as usual, got it right, and the coaster fits in beautifully with the rest of the park.
