Most people would think of 125 mph closer to 200. Wind directly in your face is different to people who aren't in it at all... Plus.... IIRC, that's a second coaster there

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

I was reading about this the other day too. I would like to ride it, but being a bit far from home, I won't loose any sleep if I never make it over there.
