They pretty much are. Only the one in Vienna has a modified lift position and a slightly different beginning. But the basic layout is always the same.
It was officially dubbed the Tooth Chipper because it wasn't too far off from the ride in the Simpsons. That only happned on that one ride but even in normal operation it's just not fun. This is a classic case of a ride that looks a lot more fun than it is. I don't hate it but don't really enjoy it either. Also whenever I'm at the park with someone who hasn't been on it, they always get really excited and want to ride when they see it. After it's always either "ouch" or "wow that was boring".

Not just a cheap plug for my video. I really like reading the YouTube responses as they tend to come more from 'regular' people than the responses you find on enthusiast boards. Fun insight into what the GP thinks. :)
"GAY...Tatsu is better"
I'm not sure I'd consider 99% of the comments on YouTube as coming from regular people.

...my latest credit whoring expedition...one B&M, one Schwarzkopf, one Intamin, and half a dozen more. Guess the country
not to get off the subject, but I have to jump at that one:
If you don’t count the Intamin Supersplash at Gardaland and the wheel-drive Katapult at Mirabilandia, that leaves one each B&M, Intamin, and Schwarzkopf in Italy.
If you don’t count the Schwarzkopf/Intamin junior coaster at Entertainment City, that leaves one each B&M, Intamin, and Schwarzkopf in Kuwait.
Denmark has one B&M and two Intamins but no Schwarzkopf that I'm aware of.
Taiwan has two B&Ms and one Schwarzkopf but no Intamin.
South Korea has one B&M and at least one Intamin, but too many parks to sort through to find a single Schwarzopf.
I know you've been to Korea and Italy's not too far from Ireland, so my guess is Kuwait.
back to the subject - I rode Elitch's Flying Coaster and it scared me and banged me all up. Three years later I rode Playland's Superflight. Much more fun, not too bangy, but still kinda intimidating. I guess they're improving. *** Edited 12/9/2007 10:55:05 PM UTC by Seahawk & the Wave***
