Storm Coaster Review

by Gtmichaels, 3 weeks ago
A great ride in my opinion, and might be my favourite ride in the park if it weren't for the classic Jet Rescue! A definite recommendation for anyone visiting!

Good

Enjoyment

Wow, this ride was surprisingly fun for a seemingly short experience. Had a smile on my face the whole time :) The part where you plummet into the thick mist was especially memorable.
Good

Effectiveness

Medium

Intensity

For being my first water coaster experience (if Wild West Falls doesn't count as one, of course), it definitely delivered! Of course, the drop is the main show with this ride and pretty much every other log ride or water coaster on the planet. The drop is very enjoyable, smooth and carries a few solid g's.
Average

Rider Comfort

Instead of everyone sharing one big lap bar as with most of these sort of rides, every rider gets their own individual lap bar. The bar seemed to be a bit too tight around my legs, but was sufficient enough to keep me safe and comfortable enough to enjoy the ride.
Average

Pacing

The ride takes action very quickly, so before you know it, you are already plummeting down the final drop. At the end of the drop, it is mostly just scenery for a minute or two, which really should come before all the crazy action begins.
Great

Theming/Storyline

This attraction is heavily themed, with the location acting as a sort of 'ship-wreck cove' or something along those lines. The queue line is scattered with mini details, and the sound effects and visuals seen after the drop are pretty cool.
Great

Upkeep/Presentation

Seeing as though the ride is fairly new, it is in tip-top shape.
Poor

Queue/Efficiency

The queue was slow to start off with, then we had to wait for about 20 minutes due to the ride vehicle needing to be changed, TWICE! I am not complaining about this as I am aware it is for the rider's safety, but we were not told about the delay soon enough.
