OK, the fix must be in! :)
Admittedly, I haven't been on Griffon. The general consensus seems to be that it's a superior ride to Sheikra, which I HAVE been on...so I can only judge by the coaster TYPE..it's the only dive machine I've rode. I liked it a helluva lot.
I may live in NJ, but I'm not a GAdv "fanboy" by any stretch of the imagination, although I've been going there since 1974 when it opened. Cedar Point, Kings Island, and some others beat the socks off GAdv.
But I live to ride El Toro. I've had probably 250-300 laps on the Bull since he was born in '06. I can count on my two hands..no toes necessary..the number of bad rides I've had. If you're in the back third, preferably back seat, there is NOTHING better. Most of those afore-mentioned bad rides were in the front seat. That ain't the place to be on this baby.
Do I wish it had three trains? Yep. Do I wish I wasn't so stapled in? Yep. Would I vote for anything else? Nope. Will I be on it this Saturday for Opening Day? Wild Horses couldn't stop me.
