Flying Ace Aerial Chase is a Vekoma inverted family roller coaster located at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio, USA. It is located in the Planet Snoopy section of the park.

History

When the ride first opened on April 7, 2001, Flying Ace Aerial Chase was known as Rugrats Runaway Reptar. It debuted along with a retheming of parts of Rivertown and Hannah-Barbera Land into Nickelodeon Central.[1] In 2010, the kids area changed themes yet again. With the retheme to Planet Snoopy, the coaster was renamed and repainted.[2]

Design

Theme

While the ride was known as Rugrats Runaway Reptar, the entrance looked like a drive-in theater. Fiberglass figurines of characters from the show were placed around the entrance and queue line. Phil and Lil were atop the drive-in marquee, Tommy was piloting the Reptarmobile that was crashing through the drive-in scene, and Reptar was standing on a faux snack bar.

Trains

Single train with 10 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row, for a total of 20 riders per train.
