Yeah but the lift hill is the dullest bit of the ride - even if it was stationary at the top of the lift hill it would still be a brilliant ride.
(I do understand the point of speed over the top of the lift hill, but I just don't think its important ; the speed the ride gets is from the drop, not the speed over the lift hill, and for people (who haven't ridden it) to be bitching about it maybe being a bit slower is just ridiculous)
The speed the ride has is a combination of the speed from the lift hill and the drop?
I really don't see the issue with people being disappointed IF the ride is now slower? Telling people not to be disappointed about that is a bit rude to be honest - everyone wants to enjoy something at its full potential, so if you no longer can, that'd be a shame.
