I rode it earlier this summer and I enjoyed it, but wasn't blown away by it. It was definitely smooth and different than other rides. The biggest problem I had with it was the restraint did not work well for me. I loved the idea when I first sat into the seat, but the harness tightened down on me on each inversion. By the end of the ride, while waiting for the train in front of us to pull out, I was sitting there in pain thinking how terrible it would be if I was stuck on this ride if it broke down. It just seems to press down on my collar bone way to much, I didn't hear anyone else complaining about it so maybe I'm just too skinny for the restraint or something. Anyways, the ride itself I think I enjoyed the left side more, but I'm not sure. The keyhole feature was very cool and the ride definitely added a nice touch to the front of the park, much like Leviathan did, IMO, for CW.

Not my favorite ride, but I did enjoy it, it was different from any other ride at the park. I only wish you didn't have to cross nearly the entire park from the resort entrance to get to it. By the time we got there each morning so many other people had just come in the regular entrance and beat us to it. We went at the end of May and the lines were not too bad, generally waited 20-30 mins for it.
