ZDT Switchback ride review

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

ZDT Switchback ride review

Got invited by ZDT's Amusement Park to come sample their new Switchback coaster.
After more than 60 rides (Chad from Gravity Group says it was close to 100, but I think that's a bit inflated), I managed to pull myself together enough to write the ElloCoaster review: https://ello.co/ellocoaster/post/hswfRtWGkqko9YsAAmeN0g

Also: videos!!!

I'm spreading it far and wide. The owners have pretty much sunk everything into this and if it doesn't pay off for them, it's going to be bad.
If it DOES pay off, it could get a lot of other small parks to think about getting one of these. I'd have no problem whatsoever with this becoming the next Vekoma Boomerang every-park-wants-one coaster.

That sounds like one awesome coaster! Just think if the possibilities with this type of coaster and its small footprint!

Here's an easier link to the review, which now includes both videos.

The videos are on YouTube now, so you don't have to go to Facebook to see them
