That looks like a fun Coaster! I wish i lived in the UK so that i could check it out, i loved all of the SAW series so i could imagine i would love this ride too. I think it's pretty interesting they created a ride with a theme. They did create a ride here Transformer 3D based on Transformers at Universal Studios, i got to ride it before it was even released it's pretty epic.

Transformers does look amazing. It may only be a simulator at heart but they have made into a must ride attractionpeople which people would tracel the world for. To prove it, I want to ride it!

It's surprising to see Saw The Ride do that stall again, but then again high winds can easily affect rollercoasters, and sometimes because Thorpe is mostly surrounded by water, these can happen easily, on a reasonable light train, like Saw The Ride has.

This ride is definitely one of my favourites if not my favourite. I love the drops in the dark inside, the bit where Jigsaw gives his nice little speech, the way the ride literally goes up vertically then does a verticle drop and of course the the shock tactics with the blades and the track in general. The ride always managed to impress me and get the excitement pumping through me. Is such an awesome ride. :)

I for the first time ever rode Saw The Ride today, and I can now officially reveal it is the worst coaster I have ever ridden, the layout was dull, tame and simply poor.

I absolutely love the indoor bit of the ride, but the outdoor bit after the lifthill does leave a lot to be desired. The only decent bit is the air time hill and even that could be a lot better.

It's funny the airtime hill didn't give me airtime and it didn't add anything to the ride experience. It defiantly better than what it is.

WHAT!? HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE SAW!?! I love the ride. Ok, it is a bit rough on the outside bit but it is an amazing ride with brilliant layout.

The layout was far to tame as I said in my earlier post, I still think if it didn't have the Saw theming it would easily have been a 1.2/1.3 coaster, something younger kids could ride and that it could have been thrilling to them as it could of been there first upside down coaster, but to me it was just tame, and I certainly would never queue the ridiculous queue time it has ever again, as it is so not worth it.
