Icon13 22 seconds of Nope




Fast forward to 1:30



It should be noted that the total time of this ride is just over 22 seconds.


It advertises going from zero to 78mph in 2 seconds.



Is waiting in line for 22 seconds worth it?


To some/many it is.

No thanks, it would take less than 22 seconds for me to suffer a heart attack.

I rode Montezuma's Revenge at Knott's Berry Farm in California back in 1978. About the same length ride, and possibly more fun.

Maybe the link went to the wrong video, where's the nope?

part of the nope was that it probably takes longer to get the passengers seated than the entire ride takes
