 Review of Hypersonic XLC @ Kings Dominion
1 Rating Posted by: WAR2174 on 9/1/2005 3:41:00 PM
Im sure a few years ago when this first opened this was an amazing ride. I remember first hearing about and thinking "They built what?!" But seeing it in person is a different experience altogether. It is so scary to ride, because it looks so poorly made. It is also such an ugly structure. The ride itself is not at all what was expected. A ride that is supposed to be known for its launch has a surprising weak launch. I have never ridden TTD or KK, but I have ridden Superman @ MM and that has a great launch. This rides launch is pretty weak, and so short. You go up the 90 degree hill which doesnt offer any airtime at all and then down and around and done. Thats it. It carries all of 8 friggin people! The line goes so slow and can be hours long. I personally think this gimmick has outlived its usefulness and must go. On top of the pretty worthless ride, it is painful and uncomfortable. WIth all the other great launchers out there, this falls by the wayside. The final indictment on this ride is that only two were ever built. PKD needs to replace this soon.

You are just wacko. Is a launch from 0-80 mph in 1.8 seconds weak? Go ride Taxi Jam.
