    Starting to sound like this might be a sloppy/uncertain press event and grand opening.

    Maybe I misinterpreted past info / speculation, but I just heard the play-by-play of the devil's snare scene and it's slightly different than I've been picturing it.

    Can you imagine going up the spike just as it starts to pour.

    I mean I rode sheikra once and it started pouring right at the top of the lift. Flying into the first inversion felt like needles

    When I was there for my turn at #potterwatch, they ran it with people on it in a fairly heavy rain shower. I was so envious, rain+coasters=a good time. Mako in the rain is stunning.

    Noticed this the other day as well. Heard it from behind the walls and it got my hopes up for a sec.

    Back when The Beast had skid brakes, those first few rides after a rain were unreal.

    I rode the Hulk as the last train before a storm shut it down, and shot straight into torrential downpour. I had an amazing time because I wear glasses and could keep my eyes open without the pain of water shooting into my eyes. My girlfriend didn't have as good of a time.

    TBH - the rain helped with my nausea I normally experience with the hulk, similar to sitting in air-condition.

    Interesting that they use the Wilhelm Scream of wolf howls instead of something sourced directly from the Potter films or created fresh. That specific sound effect is basically a cliche at this point.

    Not a criticism, just an observation!
