Yes we've explored the limits of force. Widespread, intense ejector air was the last frontier. Of course there will still be those wanting to ride it when fastest, with a loose restraint.

In my case, stomach limits how close I can get the bar to my thighs. Have found not to ride in a seat with worn padding on it, the friction can feel like pulling the skin off. Usually tighten it some going up the lift. I also use the "Hakugai grip" at spots -- the ride operators there tell people to hold on to the bar with crossed arms. Holding on further forward such as the original handholds does little good.

I'm starting to really like how TT doesn't seem to slow down for individual hills. It is uncanny.

I'd guess this is because of the original drop height is like twice as high as the next largest hill, not a lot of places for the momentum to wear out all that much.

People like to make an argument that it's "out of gas" after the zero G roll and I don't agree with that at all, especially when it's running fast. I love that mini banked turn right after the zero G roll especially on the left side of the train and that last airtime hill always seems to deliver I learned to stop letting my guard down before that over time because it and the brake run pop used to always get me off guard.

You talking about the turn inside the lift hill? Or am I just being a idiot.

Question- I haven't been since pre-covid and I'm going Sunday. Is it true that they have metal detectors before the line now?

Yes, but there are free (small) lockers in the line too to stow keys, phone and wallet. You can NOT store a fanny pack or anything like that in them. If you have something like that or a small bag, that will have to stowed in the pay lockers before getting in line.

Do they fit baseball hats? Shame that fanny packs don't fit/can't be worn.
