Elements

Ride experience

The ride starts by dropping into a tunnel beneath the boardwalk. After exiting the tunnel, the ride climbs up the 110 foot tall lift hill before dropping 100 feet at a 50-degree angle, reaching a maximum speed of 50 mph. The ride then goes off the boardwalk and towards the beach. This ride was built over the beach because Morey's Piers ran out of room on the pier. This is one of the three 100+ foot coasters at Morey's and the only one that is a hybrid coaster. The ride has been retracked by Martin & Vleminckx.

Trains

2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 24 riders per train.
