    Capacity Fun Duration Harness

    This is just a fun ride. The high-five element give this feeling of lateral airtime that I haven't felt in this capacity before. It's such a blast to have friends on the other train and try to watch their reactions as you dart under and over them. The comfort collars don't hurt but they can definitely be uncomfortable when you invert.

    Launch Fun Duration Harness

    West Coaster Racers is a nice thrill coaster. It is not too intense so it will definitely appeal to a lot of people, and the systematic dueling provides a lot of fun – yes, I'm looking at you Twisted Colossus. The inversions are also quite good, especially the first one with a nice hang time. I also enjoyed the high five element. The main drawback of WCR is the harnesses though: they are clumsy and make a bit hard to enter and exit the train. I guess it will decrease the capacity of the coaster, which could be a problem considering how popular it will probably be in the park. But it's overall a great experience and I wish more parks will add this sort of dueling coasters in the near future.

    Inversions Fun Duration Rattle Capacity Harness

    This will carve out a nice role in the park as a step-up family inversion coaster but wow do the comfort collars hurt the ride experience. I know they want to increase capacity but they're sacrificing comfort in doing that. West Coast Racers is essentially a Greatest Hits compilation from other rides in the park with the issue being that the elements presented here are worse than those said rides. There's no airtime here, but the spaghetti bowl section does pull some g's and the inversions have some nice hangtime. Update: I've gotten a few more rides on this since the opening to the general public. I can't believe this coaster already has a rattle to it. A 25 year-old B&M invert is smoother than this ride. Reliability has also been an issue as this thing has been breaking down constantly each day. The inversions are fun and give good hangtime. The pitstop doesn't seem to take as long anymore which is good for capacity. But I can't find much else that is positive about this ride.

    Theming Smoothness Duration Capacity Harness

    West Coast Racers is very fun and very long. Both sides could function as their own coaster. The pit stop is better than nothing, but unimpressive. This ride is not mind-blowing, but it is good. Comfort collars though, which don’t detract here like they do on other rides.

    Fun Smoothness Duration Capacity Harness

    The ride is a cute, fun multilaunch dueling coaster that's got some intensity, but isn't too intense for the whole family. It's definitely worth the wait, but the capacity seems to be very low at the moment (300ish per hour as of the December 21st soft opening); Six Flags seems to be aware of this though, and have opted to go with the comfort collars, which suck, to speed up dispatch times. Whether capacity improves as the ride ops become more experienced with the ride remains to be seen, but it's likely.
