Any word if anythings happening with the old Bermuda Triangle slot?
Published: December 7, 2013 at 5:15 AMNormally, I would never judge a roller coaster (or any type of ride for that matter) from watching a video. But ths appears to be one of the lamest, least thrilling, boring rides I've ever seen.

Published: December 8, 2013 at 3:49 AMHey now! I feel I must stand up for the Storm Coaster just a tad. It is an Australian first water-coaster and the level of theming that has taken place here is amazing. You truly can't tell the true ride experience just by the POV. Entering the queue you are immediately placed not a storm ravaged container port.. Windows show a storm raging outside. Boarding your vessel you head to the roller coaster section and splash down in the hull of a sinking ship. With audio, wind, fire (unfortunately not in operation during soft opening - when this video was taken) and a lot of drenching moments which is perfect for our Gold Coast summer, this is one ride not to be dismissed by a POV stuck to the front of it.
Here's a good video showing most of the action
