 Review of Desert Storm @ Castles N Coasters

I found this too be a mediocre looper deserving of an eight. The wait was non-existent so that was definitly a big plus. After the loop the train goes into 2 very smooth loops, one with a small twist near the end providing some good gs. The 2 loops are pretty strong so OTSRs arent needed, eliminating the possibility of head-banging. At the top of the second hill there is a nice pop of air-time up near the front of the car. A few more twisting drops and helices follow, most notably is the second helix following the loop which provides some nice laterals. One really fun aspect of this ride is how it goes through other rides. We dove under the dripping flume, getting us surprisingly wet! LOL After that the train is slowley lowered back into the station with a few smaller helices. Even though they were only running 1 train and only 1 operator there wasnt a wait through-out the whole day. Like many Hopkins coasters the front and back seat on this ride are much different. The back seat pulls alot of gs (especially in the second loop) while the front is relatively tame. The back also has a lot of laterals, and without OTSRs you slide around alot! LOL A 1 ride ticket was only $2 and an all day pass for the park was only 15$. Thats pretty cheap when you think about the selection of rides and length of this coaster. It was a pretty good deal so I bought an all day pass If your in the pheonix area Id suggest going to this fun park!
