Agreeing with joe here. Compared to Kraken, Colossus is Ollie the Octupus ( ;))I *love* the over waterbits and tunnels mainly. Much Better theming there. And errm...Thorpe park freak...isnt Kraken a floorless?

Because Colossus is s**t compared to Kraken in size, and just comparing those to together is like David and Goliath. ;), Kraken is simply bigger and better than Colossus.

Right. So by definition Nemesis, Inferno and the Batman rides are s**t because they are smaller then things such as Montu and Patriot. Come on give me a proper reason as size means nothing if you are actually interested in rides.

It really frustrates me when ride designers use that same opening sequence for B&M rides, which is the usual: vertical loop, dive loop, zero G roll, cobra roll, and then Mid-course breaks.Yes it works, and is a great sequence, but I'd much rather see more interesting layouts, rather than the bog- standard ;) Anyways, Sea World is an awesome park. I didn't really appreciate it when I was younger (9) as I was absolutey coaster mad, and if it didn't have any big rides it was crap in my books.But now I'm older and can apreciate the things like shows, and generally good entertainment, it makes me realize that Sea World is something rather special.Oh, and Journey to Atlantis rocks kthnx XD

Thing with the B&M standard lay-out is that it works. It throws 7 inversions in successfully and will draw in the crowds. I think a lot of parks are trying new things wit the layouts though such as Inferno with the pre-lift opener, Hydra with the Jo-Jo roll, Black Mamba in general and little Demon at Tivoli. I think the standard B&M lay-out works though, certainly took nothing away from Superman de Acero in Spain, in fact it added a large amount of variety from the smaller Beemers which over-do it on the corkscrews.

this ride really is the daddy, a million times better than Colossus, as I remember someone saying a while ago it makes Colossus look like and feel like nothing in comparison

Was it just me or did the first drop turn anyone elses stomach over. I've never haf that on a coaster before it was quite a shock when it happened. ;)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

That first drop is better than the straight down on Colossus, it is the most amazing drop I ever encountered, Kraken makes my top 5 ;)
