    Well i've got some more ORPs! Six Flags Magic Mountain!

    My first ride on X2... in the front row that is.

    I was, unfortunately, covered up by too many people. It sucks to try and get a good ORP when you are in the back row of a coaster with large headrests.

    I don't even know where your photo is taken on this.

    The only other coaster I got an ORP of was Goliath, and maybe a couple others, but our other photo coupon is being dumb. Sorry about that

    Yeah, that Full Throttle ORP isn't terribly well suited to short people in the back row!

    I just got on Apollo's Chariot a few days ago so my first ride reactions, the drop caught me by surprise. I'm in the hollister shirt. And my cousin in the blue is next to me.

    More ORPs! These are from Coastermania!

    My first ride on Steel Vengeance! What an absolutely amazing coaster! (Yes, I'm a jerk who wears a Six Flags shirt (X2 in this case) at a Cedar Fair park)

    The only ORP I got from Maverick (back row) Don't ride Maverick in the back row twice within a few minutes, by the way! It left me with a headache! Maverick Photo.JPG

    I still love Magnum, as shown here (the girl in the back row btw LOL)
    Magnum Photo.JPG

    I think I was having a little too much fun on Millennium Force :rolleyes:

    Though kinda hard to see, I'm on the far left. If you're wondering why I don't look happy, I recently found out that the front row is not the place to be on Rougarou. And yeah, it was super rough in the second half. I see why now.

    GateKeeper was WAY less rattly this visit! I really had fun this time around!

    The first of two rides on Raptor. While I look pretty uncomfortable, this just shows the sheer power of Raptor's Gs. And don't worry; I love this ride so much. Possibly my new favorite B&M Invert.

    Our ride on Valravn (I did ride later in the day with Koaster Kids, but didn't get an ORP of it). Compared to opening year when I first rode it, I had some surprisingly fun rides. Actually got some airtime. Still is just a cross between X-Flight and Raging Bull to me, tbh.

    Second ride on Raptor, Row 7 this time as opposed to back row. Again; I look like I'm in pain, but I love the ride so much. It's just a visual aid to show the sheer power of the Gs on Raptor.
    Raptor Photo 2.JPG

    Second ride on Steel Vengeance. Again; just wow. This ride did not disappoint.
    SteVen Photo 2.JPG

    Another ride on Millennium Force towards the end of the night. Rode with a lot of cool people! (Including Logan from Koaster Kids who is riding next to me but behind a couple arms)

    And that's that!

    It's now my most-liked Facebook photo.

    The ride ops were great at that park. I was expecting to have to wait for ages for more people, but they sent me straight off by myself on both this and the Blue Fire clone. One of the guys on Blue Fire spoke decent English and let me "play again" without having to leave.

    I really liked it. On paper, it's fairly similar to X Flight (same size and elements), but I hated that. I only did one ride in the back to X Flight though, but did all my rides on this one at the front. It's obviously newer as well, but was loads smoother and with some decent forces.

    Yeah. If you think X-Flight is smooth, you have to be a short person. I used to love it, but grew, and here we are.
