This is the 3rd time I have ridden Rossa and the 1st time as a member of the general public.
As we arrived at the park Rossa was not testing so we did start to panic a little, however, when we entered at 12 we were told it would not be running until 1PM.
After a couple of other rides we got to Rossa about 1.15. We qued around 25 mins in the VIP que line. Strangely the normal que was shorter than VIP.
So, onto the ride itself. I love this coaster it delivers all the way. the launch is amazing. It gets faster and faster and faster still. The acceleration seems to go on forever. It does noticeably slow down on the first hill due to the trims, but, it still gives a great pop of airtime and you still seem to fly over it.
the vast sweeping turns are still taken with enough speed that it feels like you are going very fast indeed. This is accentuated more by the track being close to the ground. After a couple more hills and low sweeping turns its back to the station over a couple of bunny hops, which do give airtime in the middle of the train, and its over.
I love this ride. I have never ridden anything like it in my life. It is Fast, Smooth and has a fair amount of airtime.
Of course I could be biased so I asked the poeple I was with, non coaster enthusiasts, about the ride and the airtime. They thought it was amazing and did have airtime.
I have also spent a lot of time in the station interviewing riders as they come off and not one person has had anything bad to say about this ride.
Che ne dite??
