I've really enjoyed the build up to this - it has been, with risk of sounding cliche, an utter roller coaster! Since the opening date was announced as May I booked this weekend at the hotel, and thank god I did! No doubt the coaster will experience bouts of down time, but I'm now hopeful that I will get my fix this weekend.

I shall be tweeting my journey, so feel free to follow me - link in my sig ;)

I love the motion of the thing - the way it slows at the apex/top of the loop.
