    If you mean Rip Ride Rockit it's awesome!
    We were lucky enough to ride it when it had its soft opening but we loved it.
    Bit scary even for me but I'd do it again.

    Rip, Ride n Rocket is fun!

    It's not as white knuckle as some at Busch Gardens, but definitely fun. It's set to the music perfectly. There is a way to access a secret menu allowing you to pick songs that aren't usually available.

    Cheetah Run at Busch Gardens is ace - the only one I've ever been on where you accelerate uphill!

    When it comes to Disney, nothing tops Everest (so to speak!)

    Made the mistake of riding Mission Space Orange when they were testing it before it opened - I think my stomach has just about stopped spinning! Suffice to say that I'm very much a Green Rider these days!
