What is your Backlot Stunt Coaster Expirience?
Posted 03 May 2012 - 09:26 PM
Do you like the restraints? Are they uncomfortable? Do you wish Paramount Still ran the ride? How about those old water effects?
Whats YOUR overall rating of the ride, and is it worth the sometimes long wait?

From what I remember, the restraints are like Flight of Fear, which can slam in on a small person like it's an empty seat. Ouch to pinched nerves.
It's a fun little quick thing like Adventure Express without the sewie smell, I always ride it when I'm there.

Pretty sure I'm the only one who likes Premier restraints, though I don't entirely understand the point of the foot restraint.
In the event that the train gets stuck in the "banked curve" (after weaving through the police cars), the rider is close to being inverted (espeically the one near the opening. Should one pass out from all the blood rushing to their head, the foot restraint is designed to keep you in the seat and not fall out.
I don't believe that the ride has ever operated at 100% since opening as was intended/marketed. The helicopter scene was much better with all of the fire and water effects, however the hard water marks left on the cars did not go over well.

Bring back the flying eagles. That is all!
I agree completely! I still ride the Eagle at Carowinds though. They let you "rip" the cords.

KI did, too. Amazingly enough.
I miss those birds! I wish SFOG had a set.
