Ride Experience[edit | edit source]
The ride begins with both trains being dispatched from the station simultaneously, then making a 90° right turn, traveling through the maintenance bay. The ride then makes another 90° right turn and travels up the 125.3 foot chain lift. Once the trains crest the hill, they drop 118 feet at a 55° angle, reaching speeds of approximately 60 MPH. The trains then coast back up a hill, where the trains slowly make a large U-turn to the left. The coaster then drops about half-way and then goes into a camelback, which is followed by a U-turn to the right. The ride then drops, rolls through another cameblack, and into the mid-course brake run. Following the mid-course brakes, the coaster makes another giant U-turn to the left, followed by two small bunny hills. The coaster's finale is a 360° upwards helix, wheres both trains travel in opposite directions.
