Even when they do trigger Bull still has airtime, I wouldn't call it complete weightlessness but it's still more impactful that Millennium Force-less. (Millennium Farce) :lol:

Guy_With_A_Stick wrote:The trim(or any trim, for that matter) is not as simple as a light switch. The trim is there for a reason, and it's an important one. The ride was designed so that the train takes the course at a certain speed. However, things like train weight, temperature, and wind can affect this speed. That's what the trim is for. If the train is going at or below the designed speed, then the trim simply doesn't activate. Slowing the train down further can lead to a valley(which, as said before, has happened). If the ride senses that the train is going too fast, the trims will activate to slow the train down to this speed. If the ride is taken at too high of a speed, then there is the risk of damaging the train and track, which can lead to a bumpier ride. This is why many people say Raging Bull is smoother than things like Diamondback, which were built 10 years apart.

I know the trim takes potential airtime away from the ride, but would you really sacrifice this ride's smoothness for a singular airtime moment that might just end up being 'ok'? I personally wouldn't.

This is why Boulder Dash is one of my favorite woodies. It's rough but the airtime makes up for it and airtime for me is #1 priority for roller coasters #2 is a good layout. Raging Bull has a good layout but with the trims it doesn't go at it's full potential. This is a unique hyper that could go much higher in everyone's list if it didn't have trims to eliminate potential airtime.

That is true pretty much every hyper is more forceful then Millennium Force. Even X-Flight is more forceful for me :lol: .

I haven't ridden Millennium yet. Why is it so forceless?? Too many trims?

A thought just occurred to me: since we're having HITP, I wonder if we'll be able to activate 2019 season passes during HITP (instead of having to do during Fright Fest) ?

It's fast but not that intense. Depending on your seat you get airtime maybe twice.

Back on topic, I hope they do like some kind of thing with sleds. I also hope that there is an ice skating rink somewhere and if it's possible do it in Roaring Rapid's place it would be nice. Last thing try to open as much as they can and there should be a holiday theme in most of the rides.

I wonder if they are going to keep the complete loop of the park open or if they are going to contain it to a few sections of the park.

It depends if there is construction happening in big areas but knowing Six Flags they wouldn't :lol: .

I hope they freeze the pool in front of the Colombian Carousel and let people skate on it! That would be the money shot for their commercials, lol

Like I said before, HItP will ONLY work if they go all-out with lights and decorations. Look at what California's Great America looked like

I'd love to see that here in Gurnee. I wonder if HITP is managed by Six Flags Corporate, because that is a lot of work for the park to do itself.
