A few seem disappointed with the rough specs we have for SW8 so far, so here is my two penneth. I never understood the lust for wooden coasters, why so many on here craved one so badly, I had ridden them at Blackpool and they were pretty rubbish to be fair. Then I went on a modern one.
Now I'm not sure if its been suggested on here before but the length accorded to an earlier post it is around 800m, the height difference around 70ft, this puts if in very similar territory to Joris En De Draak at Efterling, which is one of the best rides I've ever been on, by far the fastest feeling (although RCDB says its only 46.6mph), the sheer intensity of it rivals Nemesis, from the top of the lift hill its relentless. The fact SW8 is short and not too high, and the plans we have seen leave wiggle room for twists and turns where is currently looks straight is making me want a GCI over an RMC.
Its not very high, its not especially long, its not really very fast, and the POV makes you wonder why you would ever bother to go on it, but it is spectacular, loads of airtime too.
P.s. If you ever go to Amsterdam, visit Efterling, they do theming really really flumping well.
