Off the top of my head:
- Furius Baco's silly theme song.
- TTD's Ready to go (I can still picture waiting for boarding the first time listening to this and getting reeeally pumped!)
- Some Disney classics (SM:DLTALL, Phantom Manor, Splash Mountain)
- Phantasialand's Taron, Chiapas, Black...
According to reports, ride is running four trains reaching an average of over 1,300 guests per hour. They can do better than that (I think they aim at 1,800 pph), but I guess that's what soft openings are for, right?
But why tone it down? If riding in a single file, going down at a 90° angle from 100+ feet with many inversions doesn't scream "extreme" it's not the coaster to blame, but people's judgement.
Not every ride has to be for everybody, and if you can't read a coaster by looking at it (unless it's...
I feel like this is a downgrade from the original model? I mean, from an operations standpoint having longer trains is a plus but if that is at a cost of altering the ride elements so much, I am no sure how this is going to turn out.

No thanks. Hard pass.
I must admit that the croc mouth themeing is on point but the ride's hardware is really poor-looking and the ride cycle is lackluster to say the least. Definitely not a...
I said this about Van Helsing when it was being built and I am glad I was proven wrong upong riding it and realising there was so much more to it than just the track. I think this is the case again, because so far the ride looks dull and uninteresting. Sure, coaster in a box with track switches...
