The Gold Coaster review by Teddy

by Teddy, 2 years ago
Rated 4.0 Hotwheels Sidewinder is a very fun ride which has many intense elements. It does have is rough moments, especially in the helix before the dive loop.

Review Criteria

Enjoyment Very Good

Hotwheels Sidewinder is a very fun roller coaster, with some intense inversions. It has its rough moments, but overall, it's quite smooth.

Effectiveness Good

Intensity Very High

Hotwheels Sidewinder contains many intense elements including its two inversions, but is just not as intense as some other roller coasters in Australia like Buzzsaw and DC Rivals Hypercoaster.

Rider Comfort Very Good

The new Vekoma restraints are uncomfortable at first, but once the ride starts the restraints seem fine. The ride has its rough moments including the helix into the dive loop and the loop, if you don't keep your head back.

Pacing Amazing

The ride seems long enough, but might be better with some more intense inversions

Theming/Storyline

There is minimal theming in the queue and none during the ride that has to do with Hotwheels.

Upkeep/Presentation Good

It's fine

Queue/Efficiency Very Good

Sometimes Hotwheels Sidewinder's operations are quite slow, but it never attracts a large crowd, and there is always a short wait.
