Seeing the skyline and the curvature of the earth upside down was so freaking cool. When you change direction you also get some really good speed. All in all I’d say it’s a great addition to the park. Plus at night the lighting looks amazing!!

Rode Hangover today and it was alright. It didn't make me want to jump back in line right away. It was just okay. It was broke down almost all afternoon. My friend and I saw it testing after getting off Joker and ran right to it. We were on the second cycle out. Also, the skyline and the curvature was awesome. You were right about that.

Yeah, seeing the curvature of the Earth doesn't happen at 100 ft. elevation. https://www.quora.com/At-what-altitude- ... -the-Earth

Finally rode it. It’s a giggle ride for me. Don’t hate it don’t love it but I like it. Just makes me laugh. The hangtime as many have said is a lot of fun & seeing the park from that perspective for that amount of time is really awesome. I think It livens up the area & is nice to see two big rides really enclose Mardi Gras.

I enjoy the sign & the colors as well as the light package. What I dislike is the slab of concrete que in front. Really sucks they got rid of the fountain. They made a much nicer area for chaos than this over hyped “world’s largest” attraction which will never make sense to me. So here’s a pic of me with the fun sign. Image

I rode it yesterday after countless times saying I wasn't gonna ride it. I can honestly say I won't ride it again. Didn't do anything for me. The hangtime was literally 2 seconds if not 1 second. Not tops on my list. Maybe that's why I didn't ride the one at Georgia when I went.

Haven't been on here in a while....here goes nothing

I had my first visit on Monday. It was good right away with no lines, and had one of the first rides on Goliath (saw guy with a stick, didn't recognize me lol) after my friend and I rode goliath, Batman and v2 in the span of 45 minutes, we figured Mardi gras hangover wouldn't be too long of a wait

We waited 40 minutes for a super loop.....rip us

Overall, it was my first ever superloop, and we got on an end seat so not too shabby. Overall the ride was somewhat fun, but thats about it

Operations sucked and it took forever to load a train. It seemed that it was more of loading trains than the ride actually operating

We only rode it once on Monday, overall it's worth a 15 minute wait at max. It's a fun ride to an extent, but waiting long for it isn't worth it. It's not a must ride, but if you have time in your day, go for it. It won't completely disappoint you

^ I went on Monday too. But I didn't wait 40 min for the ride,I ended up waiting 20 min for it. But like I said ride the other superloops and compare it to this one and you will probally agree that this is the best superloop.

^ It isnt a bad ride. It's annoying how people call it a "carnival ride" yet a large collection of flats at our park are rides you'd find at a carnival.

OMG I just made the ride operators admit it was a thrill ride. They showed me their cards for rides and stuff and it placed MGH at the Thrill Rides section.

Was there a dispute that MGH is a thrill ride? It's even listed on the website as a thrill ride: https://www.sixflags.com/greatamerica/a ... rill-rides

Regardless, congrats on getting a random ride op to verify what seems to be pretty common knowledge.

Not too common. The ride op asked who thought that MGH was a coaster 90% of the train rose their hand.

You do realize that not all thrill rides are coasters and not all coasters are thrill rides, right? MGH regardless of being a coaster is still a thrill ride.

I rode Hangover during my last visit. As flat rides go, it's a decent addition to the park. Compared to King Chaos, I'd say I prefer Hangover.

Now, with respect to whether it's a coaster or not, I'm somewhat interested in Bilbo's opinion on this matter...
