Great American Scream Machine To Run Backwards

Yesterday Six Flags Over Georgia announced that their classic wooden coaster, The Great American Scream Machine, will run backwards as of March 10.  It will be a limited run.  A national landmark, the coaster previously ran backwards in 1992.   Now that I’ve seen the latest video, I must say that this looks totally insane!  I’ve ridden an invert backwards – no sweat! – but riding an old woodie backwards is a different story altogether.

What’s your take? Would this be a fun ride?
