1.) Headrests
2.) Seat dividers (especially with this rides intense laterals!)
3.) Ratcheting lap bars
4.) Brake on first drop
5.) BRAKE AT MID COURSE! (Imagine following drop without it!)
6.) Brake before helix (it WAS on today!)
7.) Brake on last rabbitt hop
8.) Removal / reprofiling of double up turn
9.) Modification to helix entrance (used to be sharper & more intense)
10.) People untying my shoe while waiting on station platform! (guess I reap
what I sow??!!)
IN SPITE OF ALL THESE THINGS I HATE ABOUT MY "NEIGHBORHOOD" ROLLER COASTER, TX.
GIANT, I STILL CALL IT ONE OF THE MOST THRILLING AND INTENSE COASTERS IN
EXISTENSE!!!
I had a marvelous 23 rides this Monday on the only mega woodie worth the wood
it is built of!
The seats over the wheels are incredibly rough but the fronts of almost any car
(esp front) are nearly as smooth as a CCI!
Lets hope Premier keeps this incredible coaster in as good shape as SF has been
over the years! (And please, no more mods!)
See yall next year in the Lone Star State!
Love and Happy Coasting!

Wow!  I rode it twice last month and I thought the Giant was horrible!  I don't
know what they've done in three weeks, but I hope Premier brings it back to it's
normal rides where it's intense, but not so intensly rough as it has been when i
was there in July.
