It is the second "Mini Hyper Coaster" built in mainland Europe. This name is given because the ride is styled after the hyper coaster (generally over 200 feet), but it is considerably smaller.
The roller coaster was designed and built by Swiss company Intamin in collaboration with Werner Stengel, a German engineer. It uses similar technology to bigger coasters Millennium Force and Expedition GeForce, specifically the trains, and cable lift hill.
For the 2017 season, the ride was repainted blue and black, replacing its former colour scheme of green and black.
After climbing out of the station, the train is released from the catch car at the top of the lift hill and accelerates down the 152 foot (46 m) first drop and over a large hill. After dropping for the second time, it ascends a hill called a Stengel Dive, the top being overbanked to around 100° to the right, before dropping down into a 270° downward helix. After medium-sized curved hill, it negotiates a 380° upwards helix and a bend to take the track parallel to the lift hill. Before entering the brake run, riders experience considerable air-time on three bunny hops.
The trains use stadium-style seating, and riders are held in by lap-bars.
