Ninja at Six Flags Over Georgia
At first glance this coaster looks pretty cool, but it actually ends up being the opposite. Ninja is situated over a lake at the back of the park. As we walk into the station we notice that other than the ride ops there is no one here. Hmmm. After we get into the sleek black cars and pull down the uncomfortable restraints it is off for the ride.
Once at the top of the lift hill we slam down a drop, this is where the head banging starts,into a cool looking inversion called a butterfly. This is actually quite painful because it twists up and around a small inversion at a fast speed, all the while our heads are ricocheting, like a pinball, off of the rock hard shoulder restraints. Next we pound around a curve into the equally tight Reverse Sidewinder. Around another turn are a pair of the worst corkscrews that I have ever been on. Fortunately the ride is almost finished by then, all we have is two more turns and onto the brake run (which stops you like a brick wall).
Once out I felt so sorry for the people who have to test this punishing ride every day. I was watching this ride because I wouldn’t go on it and I could actually see the trains shaking from side to side. This will hopefully be the only 1 out of 10 I will ever have to give.
Have you been on Ninja? What do you think? Please comment. Thanks for reading. 🙂
