Ride experience

When the coaster starts, the train is pulled backwards up the lift hill, then dropped through the loading gate through 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 loops backwards.

Trains

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