Does anyone know if layout adjustments were made at all from Jersey Devil? Haven't ridden that yet, but haven't heard great praise. Quite an uninspiring coaster, being that it is a clone and its the first ever 20th coaster at a park. I'm sure it'll bring in the crowds though but West Coast Racers seems like a much better recent addition.
After looking into the ride a bit more... It is literally one foot taller than jersey devil and I believe has a slightly longer brake run for higher capacity.... I hate coaster "records"
The thoosie hate for Jersey Devil Coaster is absurd in my opinion. Is it the greatest coaster in the world? No. Is it a great coaster? Yes.
This will be a good fit for Magic Mountain and I'm glad to see further capacity improvements being implemented (though, honestly, Jersey Devil was already churning through people like crazy when I rode it a couple weeks ago).
My issue has nothing to do with the ride itself, just was bringing up people's views who rode it. It definitely will be a good ride, and people likely just expected way too much out of it given that the original raptors ran so fast. The problem that I really have with this is the uninspired action of just copying their East coast model.... They could have put a custom family coaster in and i think it'd be a bigger deal to me. This 20th coaster record is a huge deal as far as I see it, but the park just advertises their 'record breaking' coaster.
