Elements

When the ride begins, the train is pulled backwards up the lift hill, before being dropped through the loading station and into a cobra roll and then a vertical loop. At the end of this cycle, the train is pulled up the lift hill at the end of the track, then dropped once again allowing the train to go back through the design backwards.

Single train with 7 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 28 riders per train.
