Design[edit]

Elements

The train is pulled up the lift hill in reverse and released down the drop. The train train travels through the station and into a cobra roll and a vertical loop. After climbing a second lift, the train is dropped again, and travels through the design in reverse.

Trains[edit]

Single train with 7 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 28 riders per train. Riders sit face-to face, with the exception of the front and back rows.

History[edit]

The ride originally operated as "HangOver" at Liseberg in Sweden, and was then sent to Allou Fun Park in Greece, but was never built. Its next location was Sommerland Syd in Denmark, where it operated as "Tornado". In 2011, it was sold to Bagatelle Parc in France, where it currently operates today.
