Went to Drayton yesterday for the first time in 4 years, and it’s safe to say a lot has changed.
First, I reluctantly rode Apocalypse – due to my fear of drop towers – and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed it. It was fast and very forceful.
Next up was Accelarator, for the first time since the retheme, and I think it is the best rollercoaster in the park. It isn’t that forceful, but it’s twisty enough to get my seal of approval.
After that I took a ride on Shockwave, which was OK. The inversions were nice, and it was pretty smooth, but my legs ached for the rest of the day, and the queue didn’t move too quickly as they were only running one train.
G-Force was closed all day, and I won’t talk about the Buffalo coaster, but my final ride was Maelstrom, and for me, this is the best ride in the park. It is so forceful, and I love the sweeping feeling!
