Like one of XLR8R's meme coasters! :lol:

- I have to prove that NL1 is still alive! Pack-a-punch tracks are, I personally feel, a LOT of fun! :)
- IMO, the ride stats are not everything in most cases! Never rely on the big numbers showing how tall, fast or long!

Oh man that looks awesome. How great that they timed the banking in with the zig zags.

I'm pretty sure that this was all physics. I don't think that anything was "timed"

Apparently the ride is actually pretty terrible - like it has the potential to be good but just ends up akin to a boxing match.

I rode it and it was quite bad. But luckily on a hilarious way.
Was happy to do it for the ride experience but I wouldn't re-ride it.

Close up of restraints, luckily it's not easy to headbang.

A little bit of offride footage I shot back in August 2016 when I rode it. Look how it bashes into each corner. The swinging is a fun gimmick but they way it's been done is just horrible.

I think the seats eventually lower in volume and the time is not exact due to rider weight(s), so combined with this input into the geometry enables a timed swinging. It's like some are better than others, ya know? the zig zags. So I just think they tried to get the shaping in close with the free swinging.

I don't see how this could be anymore painful than your average wild mouse. Looks pretty neat to me
What are these for?
