avid coaster enjoyer

Many B And M's last year got turned backwards. Including Hollywood Dream which has Hyper trains. I've looked at videos of it forward and backwards. It seems when you go backwards it adds a little fear of the unknown. Apollos Chariot backwards wouldn't make you sick like Alpengiest or Ruin the main the effect of Griffon. I have rode Apollos Chariot many times and I always seem to ponder what it would be like backwards. I have heard from many people that backwards airtime is insane. Also,wouldn't this be the tallest backwards coaster in the world. Just imagine having no clue when the lift hill ends and then plunging 210 feet down backwards. This would be the perfect little addition to the park.

While I can pretty much be certain this would never happen just because it's not something Busch Gardens would do, I have to admit, it would be really fun! :cool:
I wouldn't like this change. I would love to ride it like this because it would be lots of fun, but it would also ruin the view that you get at the top of the lift hill.
I think my advocacy of backwards coasters, especially with long, straight drops, it fairly well documented here. So, it should come as no surprise that I think this is a fantastic idea.

I just figured out how the park could do this. They turn the trains around for Howl-o-Scream AND ChristmasTown. Imagine looking at the fog of HOS or the lights of ChristmasTown. I t would be a beautiful view.
I think this is a cool idea, I would never ride it though. I like thrills, but I like knowing when my thrills will happen. ;)
