 Review of Backlot Stunt Coaster @ Kings Dominion
2 Rating Posted by: MovieCoast on 7/6/2006 9:34:00 AM
I didnt have very high expectations for this coaster, but I was proven wrong. Italian Job is a lot of fun. The initial launch is not very powerful, but its still fun none-the-less. Next is an upward helix through the parking garage, which provides some good laterals, followed by a few twists, drops, and a great overbanked turn. Now the ride gets wild with launch #2. You are blasted into darkness without a clue where you are headed. The speed is great, and then all of a sudden you are dropped out of the darkness, through a billboard, under a bridge, and back into the station. Sadly, it is all over now, but it makes for a great finale. If only the first half of the ride had been like the end, because the first half is quite tame. However, the end is intense and fun enough to earn a 7. And, like other launched coasters, TOO SHORT!

I heard it feels a bit faster than 40 mph. Is that true?

If the second launch is supposed to 40 MPH than yes! Its crazy. The first, however, not so much.
