Anyone experience a Grey-out (brown out) on Batman the Ride?

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.

I’ve never had a grey-out on B:TR. ShockWave is another story. I have to admit that I like pulling heavy g forces.

^ I haven't either. The only coaster I've ever experienced a gray-out on was I305 last year.

I have experienced many grey-outs on Batman. Usually at the first loop and the second loop and through the tight turn following the loop. A way to stop this from happening is flex your leg muscles (calfs and quads) to increase blood flow to the head. Pilots use this technique durning their forceful maneuvers.
Been to may theme parks, in many countries. However, SFGAm is my home park and I love it!

For Shockwave, yeah that happened once I got to the 3rd loop (It's loop after loop after loop). It really was bad one day after I just got a really bad headache after going on that ride more than once. This probably was a dehydrated type of thing, but after that, I doubt I ever went on it again. Literally, liquids could make or break a ride. If you have 1 terrible / bad experience from whatever ride, you might blame it on the ride, and not on your body at that time, and never ride that ride again.
