The coaster was closed in 2013 because it had been in a bad state. Bandit reopened in August of that year with partial retracked bits.




2 trains with 5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows, for a total of 30 riders per train. The original Intamin trains were replaced by ones manufactured by Premier Rides in 2001.
