What was worse the tilt down or the drop itself...I've heard the tilt is the worst part...Is it comparable to ShieKra??
The tilting is the best part of the ride, you think you've tilted far enough but it actually feels like you've tilted past 90 degrees. Relying on the lap bar/vest restraint is one of the most unnerving theme park experiences in the world. But honestly, the initial pop off the drop is something that cant be found anywhere else. Not even sky coasters give that kind of a sensation. its the single best reaction that a theme park attraction has gotten out of me. The sheer thrill level exceeds that of Intimidator 305, Ka, TTD, and/or El Toro. Coming from a pretty well seasoned engineer/ enthusiast, that really says a lot about the ride's functionality.
Flamboyant ... definitely is a good way to describe Brian Morrow lol
It's sad to be honest. Timbuktu really should of been rethemed to fit the style of ride it was adding. The colorful rendition that is Pantopia is a total clash against Falcon's Fury. What really could of been a spectacular theme park ATTRACTION is merely a tower ride thanks to his creative styling. And that's not a knock on him - in fact that's coming from a gay guy. He really needs to diversify the style of attractions he's delivering, because while Mark Rose is delivering sheer awesomeness mechanically, Brian Morrow isn't translating those identities into something that correlates to the ride type/style. Manta/ Antarctica/Cheetah Hunt Cross Roads/ Turtle Trek... they've all got that deflated Brian Morrow touch to them. He's leaving so much on the table it's not even funny.
Are the softs continuous throughout the day? I'll be going on Wednesday, hoping to ride this baby.
The ride has been under the control of Ops for almost a week now, so I'd say unless something technical comes about (or the occasional rain delay) you shouldn't have any problem boarding Falcon's Fury. Might want to go take a shot at the bar before you jump in line though!
I saw it while driving and holy hell is it gigantic!!! Seriously underestimated it's size by a long shot. If people still think sheikra is a thrill seekers only attraction...they now have a new champion
Funny thing is, although both rides have a 90 degree drop, the freefall sensations are totally different.
