Blue Peter Yesterday
Did anyone else see Blue Peter yesterday? I just caught it.
They sent one of their presenters, Andy, to try out Colossus, Rage and Kumali. On all three coasters, he was measured (someone from Thrill Lab?) for Excitement, Fear and Stress. The Stress was more difficult than the others to read, but this is what happened with the others:
Now personally, whilst I wouldn't say I've ever found the inlines scary, I do think this semi-confirms they aren't very exciting or exhilarating, just stuck on for the 10-inversion record. I've always thought they completely ruin the pacing.
Back in the studio, Andy "predicted" he enjoyed Rage the most. Then they opened an envelope and the results "confirmed" this.

Also, tons of photos of them filming Rage here: http://z6.invisionfree.com/advislguide/index.php?showtopic=680
Glad that Rage won... Just goes to show what giving a film crew lunch can do! I jest, the results were completely legitimate. I had a chat with Andy when they were filming and he said he'd enjoyed Rage more than Colossus.
