I had the same perception. Unlike a typical roller coaster where the back car appears faster because you drop fast as soon as you crest a hill - instead of slowly heading down until the back car "catches up" ....this ride's mag launches make it seem like the front car is being "pushed" fast while seeing the cars in front of you makes your brain translate some of the launching as being "pulled" by the cars in front of you. Like being on top of a rocket instead of hanging onto the side.Lol. Ended up riding Hagrids 2x. It wasamazingky fun. 1st time sidecar last bike, 2nd time I was on the bike in the front row - that felt 10x faster.
Question for anybody who has rode RotR and Hagrid’s (adding spoiler for anybody avoiding RotR info)...
How do the 2 “drops” compare in intensity? I’d “spoiler” your answer or feel free to send me a PM.
Last week we rode twice at 90 minute posting and were on in less than an hour - great to hear you had 3 rides today.I rode three times today with no waits being over 45 minutes. Single rider is about 45 minutes twice when the standby line was about 60 minutes but was actually 45.
Thank you, i love this ride and my daughter hasn't been on it cause she doesn't have an ap, so we have a comp ticket for her from a uotm. Shopping both parks to do as much as we can, she doesn't get to go oftenIt's all still very random. Best plan is to rope drop and if it's not running just keep checking back. We passed it today and it was on 60 minutes while raining - 10 minutes later it was on 90 minutes. Not been on it for a few days but may queue tomorrow as it's well worth the wait.
Before we went in the standard line (wanted to ride the motorbike and not just the sidecar which is pretty much assumed from the single's line) we saw a person with an orange and white hat. When we got to the front of the line, that same person was at the front of the single rider's line. That was about a 40 minute wait. We had done it right before that in singles in 30 minutes.Last week we rode twice at 90 minute posting and were on in less than an hour - great to hear you had 3 rides today.
