I looked forward to riding Deja Vu last saturday, but was let down. ----------------- "Get off of my moor you michtevous weeins." We prefer to stay" (eyes begin glowing) "Your thinking of hurting us." "Now your thinking, how did they know what I was thinking?" " But now your thinking, I hope that's Shepards Pie in my knickers"
Deja Vu. The stupid thing was closed when I was there, and it has a low height limit, and I'm way too close to it. ----------------- I want my Hay Bayler back! Forget new rides! HAY BAYLER! While they are at it, why not bring back Tidal Wave too?

I wanted a true hyper you now the kind that delievers airtime lol. I was hoping for something along the lines of Superman Ros@ SFNE but that's not at all what we got. Instead we got a huge non-steep drop, a bunnyhop and a helix WHERE"S THE REST OF IT!
The Raven - It was fun, and I really liked it. It just didn't live up to the hype. It's got everything I would normaly like: Use of terrain, tunnel, air, and a unique layout. I just got off and said "Huh?" Perhaps if I had never read anything about it, I would have liked it more. Now the Legend, on the other hand, absolutely blew me away 100%. I've never enjoyed a coaster so much.

The only woodies that have let me down were the "tamed" Mean Streak and RWB this year. Two years ago, MS was WAY better. The only steelie that disappointed was Steel Force...looked like air hills galore, but I never left my seat... ----------------- rollergator - intent on improving the "guest experience" - coming soon to a park near you

All coasters are not created equal, but I've never ridden one I didn't have fun on, and that's *all* I expect from them. "
I only rode two coasters I "did not have fun on". One was RC-48 at Morey's Piers (it really banged up my knees on the seat in front of me), and, as I said, BatWing (I thought my sternum was going to break against that restraint). Not fun at all.

I think this thread refers to coasters you've ridden and were let down by the ride elements. You all need to stop whining about Deja Vu not being open on Saturday at SFGAm...there was nothing that could have bee done, and no warning that what happened would happen. Get over it.
As far as rides that let me down...Raging Bull. It has a great first drop but the rest of the ride pretty much crawls thru the elements because of their height. But I like a more intense coaster and Bull really isn't an intense coaster.

No my friend you have it all wrong. It is not *us* who is hyping, rather everyone else. You hear over and over how great a ride is and it cant help but affect you.
Anyway, for me it was (no not Raptor, rode it LONG before I heard talk about it) The Incredible Hulk Coaster. It was not bad at all. Just not the "greatest invention since sliced bread". Dueling Dragons on the other hand really WAS all that! jeremy

It is intersting that Hulk received so much pre-opening hype from both the park and coasters fans, but once all the smoke cleared, people now say the ride isn't all that great. I still say ignore hype, it usually is just that, hype.
BTW, who do you consider "everyone else" to be. There isn't a GP consensus, so we can only be talking about the park, or coaster enthusiats. ----------------- What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowman. That is the entire law; all the rest is commentary. -The Talmud

When I was able to make it to SFMM earlier this season and not only was DV not even done being built but Psyclone was closed, Flashback was closed and Viper was closed. I know a lot of people don't like Psyclone or Flashback, but I want to ride every ride to form my own opinion. Also that RWB is closed every single time I go up to SFWoA.
