Who road Hypersonic and what did you think?

I know several people were planning trips to PKD this past weekend for opening day. How many of you actually made it on Hypersonic and what did you think of the experience?

the last 2 posts prove that a good coaster doesn't have to have a long circuit :)

Was it operational the whole day? I'm thinking of making a double trip Carowinds/Dominion, but I'm concerned that the drive won't be profitable if it isn't running! :)

It ran all day Sunday, until it had a fully loaded rollback. After that occured it was back running up in 10 minutes. I will post a report on how it was operating very soon.

What happens on a rollback with this ride? Do they have some sort of braking system that brings the train back down the hill slowly?

I started a new post (Probably should have been in trip reports, but I didn't talk about anything but Hypersonic) that details the rollback I saw, along with many other things.

I think you mean who 'rode' Hypersonic.
