 Part of Recoil was closed this season. Aside from the weird, crooked wooden ramp at the beginning that dumps you into a rock, the part of Recoil that was open isn't really worthy of a double black rating, but I don't know what the rest of it is like.

This season it was all rollers and berms. A lot of fun. With speed, the rollers become jumps but they are easy to just roll over. At the closure you need to go to Velocity or Twilight Zone. You can also bail and take the service road a short distance back to the lodge.
