almost impossible to review this ride and make comparisons with the Top Scan
rides like The Samurai ride at Thorpe Park. It has similar seating
consisting of 6 rows of seats, spiking out from a central point forming a 6
pointed star. Unlike the arm of a top scan though that is at a diagonal
angle the arm here starts out completely vertical, and does large loops
during the ride.
it has visual similarities to one of the greatest thrill rides out there.
Does it match in terms of thrills? I would say it does, but sadly for only
about 10 seconds of the ride cycle. For those 10 seconds you get some good
wild thrilling movements. For the rest of the time it feels to predictable,
and the level of thrills doesn't reach that high a level.
I'm told this might be because of the ride program, and there are
more exciting settings. Thinking about it I should have tried the version I
saw at a German funfair I was at recently, but there were so many other
great rides I wanted to do (including ironically a Top Scan) I never got
around to doing it. As this one stands it's not a terrible ride, but it's
more a ride to provide a short distraction, than something that will stick
out in the memory.
