Reply The Coaster Critic December 8, 2008 I was thinking the same thing Stephen. That's a lot of pauses in the action. I kind of wish they would've laid the ride out differently so there weren't as many runs, but I hold judgment until I actually ride it. Hopefully, the park buildings and walkway, and of course the on-board media add a lot to the experience. Reply Anonymous December 9, 2008 I assume they're block brakes and won't necessarily be trimming all the time. Reply Anonymous December 12, 2008 Possible 2009 ride of the year behind Diamondback, of course!!!! Reply Lucas June 24, 2009 The brake runs are ruling the ride. there are too many. I thought there could be more inversions than the twisty loop, which looks cool. Reply Matthew July 1, 2009 Very unique roller coaster. I can see how they arent afraid of trying new things. And you guys are right about all these brake runs. They need to hold up on those. You build up all the adrenaline then it get ruined with another brake run! Reply Ash October 8, 2009 I am going to ride this new roller coaster this weekend and i am so excited although the braking constanly worrys me that it wont be that good the fact you get to pick what you want to listen to and that the twist are so cool loooking i cannot wait to ride this – ash Reply thoams August 14, 2010 i know you have to buy tickets for park but do u have to buy tickets just to ride it and im staying at the hard rock hotel tomorrow and hopefully riding it tomorrow and answers on wats happening there too these next few days Reply Kristina Kidd August 23, 2010 We loved the Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Florida. One thing I would like to find out is was there more than one type of DVD we could have bought. We bought one of my mother riding her first roller coaster (which was funny) but the DVD only shows a few seconds of her and the rest seems to be a commercial of the coaster. We were really hoping it would just show her since the DVD is being sent to our son in Afghanastan to put a smile on his face watching his Grandmother. Reply Jorge March 26, 2015 All those brake runs are not there only to slow you down, they are check points for each train to pass through, the more brake runs there are means there can be more trains on the track at the same time which makes for a much shorter wait time in line to get on. If there were no brake runs then they would not be able to send a train until the on out on the track returns all the way to the loading platform because if they were to just send off all those trains and one of them for some reason didn’t make it up a hill then it would not be able to stop the train behind it anywhere and it would be chaos and a bad impact. So if you see all those brake runs its for the sake of your safety and to make wait times shorter for the ride.
