Me like. I truly hope this temporary "experiment" is successful, and that SF Great Adventure is the next lab rat. There's no indications they're getting a new coaster next season, so I'd try this in a heartbeat. Well, I would regardless...

Whoa...riding a backwards upside down coaster with glasses. Like a boss.
You sir, have earn my admiration and awe. How such a feat is achieved amazes me beyond belief...especially since coasters (especially at the Six Flags parks) have never exactly been friendly to us visually impaired folks.
I salute you!

Great Job. I enjoyed this...

But I think Montu at BGT is much better...

Thanks again.

Man, I still remember summer of 1992 when the ride opened, coaster freaks across the country heading there to ride it as it was the first of its kind. Still an amazing thrill, can't wait to see how it feels going backward.

Is there a reason the trains only have seven rows this year? Or have I been so out of touch from Great America that I missed them reducing from the 8 beforehand?

It is a still a great ride! Even after 21 years, it's still running great. Compared to others like Montu and Dragon Challenge, it's pretty short

Anthony DOES deserve our admiration and awe. But he didn't ride. His brother did :)

And it's pretty darn easy to ride with glasses. Get a strap. I could not "SEE" myself riding without my specs, although I have done it occasionally. I've never been to Knotts, but I believe their policies forbid glasses, even WITH straps. Not sure if it's in effect on ALL their coasters.
