    I think I'd be fine with the rest, but that tophat element makes it a big NO THANKS for me!

    TBH as the last few years have passed I've found it more difficult to ride some of the big coasters, especially if they roll inversions.

    I still find that with some of the older coasters, TF (notably Kumba at Busch Gardens and Kraken at SW), but these most recent ones are so smooth and, with no shoulder restraint and head-rest to bop your head on the side-to-side elements, it makes for a much more enjoyable ride

    Yes, that's they to this ride, PG. Very much like Mako at SW, but with those 2 fast-launch sections and 4 inversions, so you get the full coaster experience

    Here's a great new look at the VelociCoaster, courtesy of Twitter photo account Bioreconstruct. It's taken from the newly re-opened Me Ship The Olive play area in Toon Lagoon. And you can already see how well all the landscaping around the ride has come to life:

    This looks like a great ride and addition to the park in general, one day I might even get to ride it.
    7 Trips to Florida, Christmas in LA, Disneyland Paris twice and odd days here and there.
    All my trip reports are now HERE.
