notes:
Love this ride! The viewing platform rises slowly to the top, pauses.... and then makes a slow descent, pausing again at the base.

Two things that would make this ride better:
1) if platform rotated as it rose
2) lights.
But, great kit otherwise.

notes:
Although I have not yet completed this kit, I have completed the testing phase. I had the ride in operation for about an hour & experienced no problems other than a few minor leaks at the tops of the lift hills (which were easily fixed).

I saw a message board post some time ago from a modeler who experienced the lift belts sticking during operation. I did not have this problem & I am totally thrilled with this ride kit!

One other note: running the 2 water pumps does cause this ride to be noisier than most. But, the amount of detailing on this kit more than makes up for that.

A good looking ride, but with a few problems... Driving chain occasionaly becomes stuck.

This problem can be helped by applying lubricant ("Teflon" type) to the track along curves.
