I have to agree i think the only thing that would appeal to everyone would be a woodie it would just look so natural down there and imagine nearly 200ft drops skimming the trees all the way down it would be amazing. Granted it would be a lot smoother running on steel but then im pretty shure during ...

I voted for hands in the air. As normally i just put my hands in the air and shout alot, but just latley ive started holding on and closing my eyes, and imagine the track infront of me, its a weird experience because corners and things come quicker than u can imagine then. :)

I would say duel, its a complete waste of time, you get too shoot little crappy dots, and by the end your finger hurts. But i wouldnt be putting this down if it was still the haunted house as on that you could look at the scenery and just enjoy the special effects. Which you carnt on duel as your co...

I think submission will be going in the next 5 years, due to the fact that its not a popular ride and i dont know of anyone who doesnt complain either about the harnesses being painfull, only one side working or just generally being a boring ride.

***you get anything but wet***

I find that if you get everyone on your boat to all lean violently the same way in to one of the slight dips before you hit a wave you can get the boat to hit the very bottom of some waves which makes i high wave crash right up the front of the boat soaking everyone.

I was at AT about 2 weeks ago and the waterfalls were working on nemesis, but my mate went a few weeks before that an he said they were working, but they wernt red. They were just normal waterfalls.

But wheni went they were working fine so they should be in july.
