    Nice surprise! Comfort Launch

    Twitterで「バックダーンは何も知らないと面白い」って聞いたので、なんの情報も入れずに乗りに行った。本当にびっくりした。パニックパニック!

    Airtimes Comfort Smoothness Too short

    日本一、巻き上げで盛り上がるコースターです。みんなから愛されるコースターってなかなかないですよ?私はエアタイムの楽しさはこれで知りました。大好き。

    Location Intensity Layout Rattle

    プレッツェルループの後に浮きがあるんですよ?びっくり! まぁ、このコースターの魅力は浮きではなく、超ハードなコースレイアウトですわ。よくこんなもん、テーマパークに入れたな。 景色も良好。インメルマンターンの入りとか、まだ回るの?って感じ、もう最高!プラス評価、3つじゃ足りない。

    Nice surprise! Location Layout

    Perhaps the best mine train ride out there. I love going backwards and this have full time cars on the train that allow for that. Add in decent drops, decent speed and awesome tunnels and helixes and you have yourself a great little coaster.

    Discomfort Tear it down! Lap Bar

    Torture! If you are over 5'-10" tall or weigh anywhere close to 200lbs...RUN! Stay away. Don't even think about riding this coaster--especially if you are male. The "T" shaped lap bar on these only have one locking position. For me this was about 2-3 inches embedded into my groin. I seriously couldn't believe the pain I was in. I tried everything I could to re-position on the lift hill to no avail. I think I blacked out after that. I remember absolutely nothing about the ride itself. I had to sit on a bench for about 15-20 minutes to recover afterwards. If you are anywhere near the measurements I listed above, trust me, avoid this at all costs. Your man parts will thank you.

    Theming Nice surprise! Fun

    This was the biggest surprise of the trip. That is saying something for a park with Lightning Rod in it. We rode this more than any other coaster. It is just plain fun. It is full of surprises that I won't give away. The first time you ride it you will have no idea what is happening or where you are going. Sure, it isn't 100% liquid smooth, and it definitely isn't anywhere near the tallest or fastest, but it simply delivers fun like few coasters can.

    Inversions Location Layout Too short

    Best of the old Arrow loopers. I don't recall any head banging at all. Where this is located leaves the entire coaster out of sight from anywhere in the park. You have no idea where you are going the whole time--especially at night. It is rather short, but very intense. Back when this was built it had to be one of the most intense rides in the world. Even by today's standards it is fabulous, despite the old trains and restraints. Solid 9/10.

    Pace Masterpiece Intensity

    Well, what to say about this...it was super anticipated and super hyped. It had a huge expectations to live up to. Plus, when I was there the line was about as long as I will tolerate standing in. Was it worth the wait and did it live up to the expectations..? In a word, absolutely. Many people are calling this the best coaster on the planet right now, and I have zero reason to argue with that. This thing is crazy intense from beginning to end. It never lets up. It seems to go on forever twisting in and out and through the huge wooden forest of supports. Even if this were just the first drop and one circle around the layout it would be on many top tens, but with the length and the intensity throughout, it is a masterpiece of coaster execution. Of course it is liquid smooth. Throw in crazy speed, tons of air, dozens of near misses, disorientation of being within the structure, several inversions that all really work here, and you have fantastic recipe for a wonderful coaster. Truly a world class thrill machine. One of the best.

    Fun Harness Disappointing! Discomfort

    On several sites online this is considered to be one of the worst coasters on the planet. I don't really understand that. Sure, it isn't at all what I would call smooth, but it isn't painful. The first drop air, loops, corkscrews and the helix deliver a pretty decent ride. There are a couple of rough transitions--especially entering the first corkscrew, but it isn't nearly as bad some others I have ridden (Ninja at SF Georgia). I have ridden this as many as 10 times in a row if means anything to anyone. No where near a great coaster, but also no where near the worst. Fun and worth the ride.

    Launch Disappointing!

    As my first launch coaster, I though that this was pretty good. This ride is unique in that you are launched backwards out of the gate. The launch is not the most forceful, but what makes it fun is that you can't see where you are going and the launch section is very long. You just keep accelerating and accelerating until finally you start rising after 7 seconds of launching. There is a moment of weightlessness, and then you fall back and slow down for another 8 seconds. My biggest issue with this ride is that it only goes 2/3 up the tower, which is over 400 ft tall. The height of the track portion is only 328 ft tall, but it doesn't even reach 300 ft. You're lucky if the whole cart goes into the red section of the tower, which is only about 250 ft. It's quite disappointing, but this is an old ride.
