I would like a second launch in another straight, but I do appreciate the fact that instead of the silly speed braking rides in Cedar Point and N.J., this one actually has a track to run around... Not some silly circle!
The other parts of the ride look really slow, in contrast with the launch. But who knows? The Test Track feels really windy (in the track section) and it doesn't go faster than 70 or 65mph. One hundred plus in those open Formula seats must feel intense. (Especially with a face full of sand! LOL. Man, I'd really like to ride Formula Rossa!
