DC Rivals HyperCoaster Review
by XxMrYoshixX, 3 weeks ago
Despite it not being the tallest or fastest hyper coaster around, DC Rivals manages to pack a huge punch with a great mix of forces and airtime. Why Amusement Today picked Mystic Timbers over this coaster for "Best New Ride" is anyone's guess.
EnjoymentThe ride is a hybrid of every type of hyper; a great first drop, intense grey-out moments like on Intimidator 305, great floater airtime like on B&M hypers, kick-ass ejector airtime, and intense turns like on Intamin hypers.
EffectivenessWhen they say, "This is the greatest theme park attraction in Australia", it is. No questions asked.
IntensityA great mix of forces and airtime on the coaster. Airtime is very good on the non-inverting loop, first airtime hill, and the set of bunny hills at the end of the coaster.
Rider ComfortVery comfortable restraints. The ride is very smooth, but however can get jerky in some sections.
PacingEvery element of the ride is as good as the others.
Theming/StorylineTheming is limited beyond a few nice billboards.
Upkeep/PresentationThe ride was fairly new when I rode it, so it was in very good condition.
