Layout[edit | edit source]

After dispatching from the station, the trains go through a 90 degree, right-hand turn, that leads into a straight section of track facing riders toward the vertical lift hill. After completing the lift hill, the trains plunge down a 90 degree drop which leads into a cobra roll. After exiting the cobra roll, riders will experience a vertical loop, similar to the vertical loops seen on early inversions of the early 1900's, and not like an eliptical loop on modern B&M or Intamin roller coasters. After these invesions riders will experience an overbanked turn into an in-line twist, which leads into a helix, and finally the break run.

Trains[edit | edit source]

3 cars. Riders are arranged 4 across in 2 rows for a total of 8 riders per car.
