Hey guys, I'm home for a few hours after Lagoon today. I have some good news...

Today, after waiting for around 3 hours in a line, I got to ride on the first public car on Wicked. We were right behind a row of maintenance guys. It was a really great ride, and it was better even being the first! Heres what I think:

Seats:

The seats are very roomy and comfortable, and the lap bars are nice. They aren't quite the "blades" I had thought they would be. The only complaint I have about the seats is that it seems like theres too much room between the seat and the floor of the car. Really comfortable though.

Speed:

The speed was ok for me, but the ride even weighed down with passengers seemed a bit slower than it should be. The initial launch up the tower was pretty much the perfect speed though.

Everything else:

Wicked is a fantastic ride. I would ride again and again, even though it is a little bit slow for me. I cant wait to see all the landscaping and everything else finished.

Pictures!!!!

Before the ride opened:

The neon sign was up:

People coming back to the station:



Having fun!:



And lastly is a perfect view of the sign:


Overall the entire experience was great. I got to be in the first 4 public riders and I was interviewed by the Deseret news. How fun! Laugh

I am looking forward to going back tonight to ride again and get some more pics. See ya later!

Drove by Lagoon at around 2:30 and was upset to see it not running, then I drove by around 4:30 and was running.

It was a bit of a blur to me so I cat remember if it felt faster than Dragon.

About landscaping and stuff - there will be a pond but there is no music right now. There is a "boom" sound effect when you launch though. Wink

By the way - if the pictures seem mis-matched, its because they aren't all uploaded yet so bear with me.
