Ride Experience

The ride's layout

The ride starts as the train is pulled backwards from the station and up the first lift hill by a catchcar. After being released, the train passes through the station. At this point, smoke is released, adding an effect to the ride. The train the enters a Cobra roll element (referred to as a boomerang by the designers), and then travels through a vertical loop. After being pulled up the second lift hill, the train is released to head backwards through each inversion once more, making the total amount of inversions per ride six. Brakes slow the train down as is passes through the station backwards, and then comes to a complete stop in the station.
