Did you notice from the one shot of the "Joker" from the Skyride, we have dual set's of painted Spin-Fins on the top run of the "Joker"? We have a more intense setup than Texas. Pretty sure they have one Spin-Fin on each side, spaced differently. We have two sets at the same spot's on both sides. Double the fins before the 1st Raven Turn.

 

Correction. We have 3 sets, right after the lift their are real long ones on each side to get a real good spin going to start off with it seem's also. This is the most intense setup you can have with it, most fins that can be placed on a "Free-Spin".

We have 2 more "Spin-fins" than Texas, the most can do on the "6 Element". Texas has the long ones on the 1st little drop, but only one on each side, staggered. We have 2 on each side, in the same spot's on both little "hump's". Not in this shot is the single fin on the other side. It still will be based on the rider, the fins will help you along though to get going really good if you want too.

From the look's of how they also moved the fins down the little hill's more than in Texas, i think they took what they learned from that installation to make ours a little better, Coming off that little "hump" if your already going in a spin good from coming over the hill, hitting the lower fin will really boost you along to get going good. In Texas you hit the fin first, then the hill gets you going good. They switched it for "The Joker". I think if you want to flip on "The Joker", your going to flip alot..

They can not be "on" stronger or weaker, they have no power what so ever. The positioning, and the length of the Fins determine how much "spin" they give to a Seat. The Guest's preferance of what they want to do will be the main factor once everyone figures out how to throw your weight around to get going good.
