    I think about the only ride I thought worse than Baco was Mean Streak, mostly because at least Baco is mercifully short...

    Yes it's rough but don't let that put you off. It's worth it just for the launch and, as many have discussed, the setting is spectacular. I wish more coasters were built over water.

    *Prepares to be pelted with faeces* No it's really not..I really enjoy Baco. It is the most intense and forceful launch I've ever experienced and the ride simply never lets up from start to finish. It may not be for the faint hearted but it's a rollercoaster. Do the majority of people expect to sleep on these things or read a nice book?!

    Is that what used to be at cedar point? Dear god that thing was brutal, the only ride I’ve ever been hurt on and wanted off. And it lasted for ever. Incredibley painful and unpleasant.

    Baco is magnificent in comparison and to be honest not all that bad I would say

    Aye it was, now replaced by Steel Vengeance (though even a Go-Gator would've been an improvement)...

    As an aside, the only ride in recent memory that physically caused me harm was Tornado at Bakken; a worrying trend for these 'unique' Intamins...

    There's a couple of SLC's that are considerably worse than Baco as well as one or two woodies. I'd happily re-ride Baco for an hour or two if it meant seeing El Condor torn to the ground.

    Agree Tornado is utterly horrendous (and outright unsafe) if you're not properly prepared for the onslaught.

    That said, I do think there is some limited skirmish of fun to be had from it if you ride it right, unlike Baco.

    Tami Tami has had Express for years, since it became a part of SesamoAventura.

    It wasn't mentioned anywhere on the adverts for express over winter, we might have ridden if we'd known.

    Staying on express, they need to come up with better names for their packages. Calling the base tier express max is really confusing.

    Let's be honest John. It just adds to the chaos.

    A quick update on Hotel Colorado Creek, its been released today in the latest press information that the new hotel will feature it's own restaurant and bar. So for those panic stricken few who didn't want to walk to Hotel Gold River, you can now rest in peace. :wink:

    Restaurant Colorado Creek - "Premium buffet restaurant open for breakfast and dinner overlooking the creek".
    Colorado Lounge Bar - "Open between 9:00am - 12:30am"

    HOLA - IS BUFFET!

    I hope it's more premium than the Gold River buffet.

    It'll be the same buffet as Hotel 'The Callaghan's'.
