Vertical lifts are rather uncomfortable to me, so when you factor in the mandatory terrible music, it feels like something out of Clockwork Orange. The music also does nothing to enhance the ride experience like a dark ride, it's only a gimmick. They should at the very least give the option for no music. What's even the theme here? This is the only ride in the park without a cohesive theme (Unless you consider "PARTY PARTY PARTY" a theme, in which it would be the Killarney Kommotion coaster(Koaster?(KKK?))) and it's out of place besides rides like Mummy and the park's other movie rides.
Even if the layout wasn't 50% break run, it felt forced into it's small footprint in the worst way possible. It feels out of place at this park because the other rides seem to have their space made for them instead of being shoehorned in. Maybe if it was at a Six Flags, the difference in quality to the park's other rides wouldn't be as noticeable. However, this is at the same park as The Mummy and the sister park to where The Hulk is and the difference was simply stunning. Maybe this isn't the worst coaster in the world, but Universal is so much better than H:RRR. This thing cost $45 Million?!
Matthew: Verbolten does the same, and there are nice touches. There's no reason all of the major rides can't do this. A little imagination does wonders for a theme.
the vertical lift and its impact on the park visually are the only things I really dislike about it. Personally the music makes me excited and it really increases the ride for ME, I guess it doesnt for others.
and it is more of a six flags coaster I guess, but its fun to me so Im happy its in the park
