    I rode it twice in the front seat so far and it is awesome. I can't compare it to Bizarro because it's a different animal. But its definitely a top 10 coaster.

    One other thing to add is the ride changes as you change seats and rows. Also there's still more theming to be added as well as the test seat.

    They didn't say what theming is left but they will continue to add it like they did with gcg. According to the designer of the coaster on the first test run was going faster then what was planned so they have been swapping out wheels. They are having problems with the paint peeling off the track and covering the wheels so until the paint is gone they will keep swapping out the steel wheels.

    It's best in the back. Each seat is drastically different.

    They are running steel wheels until the paint wears off then they will run urethane and nylon wheels.

    ^no the steel wheels slow it down and as the weather gets nice more of the paint will wear off only where the wheels track. When they put all urethane and nylon wheels it will speed up and get quieter than it was today. I will have a ptr up later which includes a couple video's of the que and the ceremony.

    God that thing was amazing. Rode twice (wish I could have went longer but I was only there for 3 hours). In my opinion it is better than Bizarro. I was interviewed too, I was happy about that and I met Alan Schlike. Looks like he came to the right ride. Got to ride Pandemonium 4 times and I wish I was able to get on SkyScreamer but it was closed most of the day because of the WICKED winds. I hope they add more theming especially to the outside of the station. Also will they add a weather balloon. This is definitely gonna win best new coaster for 2015. I've heard TC is more of a family coaster.
