I'm honestly surprised they kept the racing theme, but the refreshed logos and area around the coaster looks nice. Do you remember when Mantis (Rougarou) was announced it was originally called Banshee? People threw a fit [at the time], and CP changed the name. Could we possibly see that with Top Thrill 2?!

As for the ride experience, thanks for giving an honest review that isn't completely negative. If this ride was installed at literally any other park in the world people would be gushing all over it. I, for one, am looking forward to climbing that top hat again in 2024

Arthur, I also liked how you mentioned what some people seem to miss - that you will be going 101mph backwards up about 354' (if I calculated that correctly)!

I’m with you - I think this will be an exciting, unique ride experience, and realistically the best we could expect given the ride’s past. But I think you’re too lenient on the name - this had to be the worst option they could have gone with. Everyone I know who saw this assumed it was placeholder. I can’t imagine how this name will look exciting on merchandise. I’m all for the ride, but not here for the name.
