Definitely not a ride for me
Too fast and too many inversions
I’ll stick to the Mad Tea Party at Magic Kingdom
And thanks for allowing me to ride a second consecutive time a few Saturdays ago

Love the ride but the park and line rules ruined it! I had a torn ACL and was using a scooter. Those are not allowed on the line. It was clear the do not respect disability laws. The even required me to remove the brace so they coud make sure i was not hiding a phone. The invasion is beyond wrong!

The velocicoaster was hands down the best Rollercoaster I have ever been on. My 10 year old daughter went on her first rollercoaster and this was it! The best ride ever!
