board feet? WOW! This coaster is surrounded by Washington and Oregon western fir,
which hides the dual steel track. Gemini is named for the astrological sign of the
twins. This dueling sibling is the best racing coaster I have ever been on, and I've been on quite
a few. The queuing lines are the only drag here. Too many people are forced
into the station making it difficult to get your preferred seat. Half way through the line
you are given a choice, front or back. Well in the loading station it all gets
thrown back together again. I don't know, I guess I'm being anal. I have no
patience. For instance: What is the deal with everyone hanging out at the Yogurt
section at your super market. Yogurt is Yogurt and if you're buying it, dont
you know your brand? It hasn't changed in a decade, "Get in-get out."
This queuing line just reminds me of the Yogurt section. OK, back to Gemini.
This figure eight style track is very smooth but provides a lot of air time and quick
turns. It's just plain fun. Oh, your thinking, Millennium, Magnum, Mantis, Raptor,
right? Stand in line for this one and I promise you will not be sorry. The
first drop alone will surprise you. As you climb the lift hill, get into the team spirit
and cheer on your coaster. Chatter of "Go Blue and Go Red" can be heard
all the way down to the bottom. This provides a healthy atmosphere as you do battle
with the opposite riders.
is twice the fun!
