Oh WOW!!!! I wanna ride that thing! A 'roller-coaster' that has a 100 degree drop! I mean, 90 degrees is straight down so this thing actually rolls under itself a little bit! YIKES!

I don't do rides...Haunts yes, rides no.

I'd have to be extremely drunk to even watch it.

I'm afraid that goes beyond my threshold for coasters, but that is pretty impressive. I may not ever ride it, but the scene-setting and ride design is always interesting to me (I guess I'm an armchair coaster fan). I wonder if there are any other creepy effects/illusions on the ride aside from where it looks like you are going to fall into the rotating saw blades, only to zip away and under them in that 100 degree drop.

You're mad...all of you...stark raving mad.

I don't do beyond vertical..in fact I'm very wary of beyond horizontal.

I derive absolutely no pleasure at all from holding on to my top hat for grim death whilst simultaneously being battered unconscious by my own lips.

LOL! Well then I guess you'll never ride The Hulk. This baby goes from 0-40 in 2 seconds! It happens right at the beginning. You are slowly going up the starting hill (enclosed in a tunnel) and you hear the old sound of the chains and gear cranking you up. But, that is fake sound because all of a sudden the electro-magnets kick in and you are shot out of the tunnel at 40 mph and do an immediate zero-G roll to the left.

I'm a big fan of roller coasters, well in fact I love speed and big thrills ! The thing is I can't stop laughing while riding them !!! I love speed on my bike too but I'm too concentrated to laugh !

hey,

my mum, sister and friend had won tickets to go on SAW for last friday, apparently its awesome...
As you queue up there are a few actors and sounds...and inside on the side there is lots of SFX like blood sprayed on you, air blown at you, lots of talking....

But the one thing they didnt like was that it was to short and the 100 degree drop hurts the shoulders...

But it is an awesome ride in the whole...

I would of gone on it if it wasnt for my fear of rides....LOL...

Feel free to ask any questions and I will get them answered...

I rode the Hulk, its one of my faves. Did you ride the Mummy since you were there Terra? , I love the themeing on that one..
In Barons defense, I use to have somewhat of a fear of rollercoasters, back in 2001 I was diagnosed with Severe heart failure, due to ephedra, my heart was only working at 5%, I was put on a heart transplant list, blah blah, so, everytime I saw a sign that said heart conditions do not ride, I was kinda scared about riding them, after riding 'The Hulk' it broke my fears, I am better by the way with my heart, no heart transplant needed.
