The Racer Vs Rebel Yell (AKA) Racer 75

Recommended Posts

If you could Pick one what would you Pick? I would pick racers because the amount of airtime and Speed you get everywhere rebel yell is slow and has no airtime.

Racer 75.  Granted, I haven't ridden it since 2016, but it seems that KD invests much more in their version than KI does.  Smooth as glass, plenty of airtime, and they had painted it the original red white and blue.  Since then, it has undergone more retracking and structure replacement.  I'm hopeful we will see more changes with our The Racer as we move towards 2022.  Continued retracking, some structure replaced, and a complete repaint.  It would be nice to get the variable chain lifts, too.  I've heard good things about this change they made on Racer 75.

Kings Island Racer over Racer75. Racer75 is VERY smooth as of last year. But, that airtime is weak sauce everywhere. KI's racer had better airtime for me, and it's not glass smooth.. side note, why Mystic Timbers gets better and better as we move away from opening year.

Variable chain lifts? 

Yes....KD recently updated the lifts/programming to ensure that the trains actually race. So if one dispatches about 10 seconds after the first, the lift will speed up on the delayed dispatch  side to bring the train to match the location of the first dispatched train. From what I understand it does this up to a certain point.

That’s fantastic! Beast’s is variable (to a point) but that’s just for blocking, not racing of course.
