 Review of Apollos Chariot @ Busch Gardens Williamsburg

First of all, on its maiden voyage, this coaster injured professional himbo Fabio, as he collided mid-ride with an unfortunate goose. That fact can never be repeated often enough.

That being said, Apollo&#39.s Chariot is an excellent ride. I&#39.d probably have given it a 10, except that it&#39.s not quite as good as S:RoS at SFNE (which gives much better airtime), or Nitro at SFGA (better layout), imho.

Still, AC has much going for it. It&#39.s purple (always a plus). It uses those lap-wedge restraints that make things feel a little scarier that over-the-shoulder ones. It&#39.s a good ride length and its insanely long course extends far into the woods and looks nice. (One exception: when the ride swoops down towards... what looks-like an algae-ridden cesspool!) Like all hypercoasters, it features a first drop that is really big, really steep + really fast. In fact, if you like drops, AC may be a bit better than the other hypers I&#39.ve been on, as several of its secondary drops are pretty sizable. There&#39.s some airtime, but not a lot. Old-school woody fans might appreciate the fact that the ride has some rattle to it. (!) Not headbanging or anything else bad, just shaking that you&#39.d be more likely to expect on wood than steel.
