Elements

Ride experience

The car moves into a dark ride section after leaving the station. After passing through a heartline roll in the darkness, lights begin to flash above the launch, which accelerates from 0-55.9 mph in 1.6 seconds. Outside, riders head up an outside top hat, which leads into the first dive loop. The car makes a right banked turn and a left turn. Riders approach the block brake, followed by a hill and a helix. After the helix, the car flips into the second dive loop, which dives into a tunnel. Following the tunnel, riders move through a corkscrew. The corkscrew is followed by the final brake run back to the station.

Trains

4 trains with 2 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 8 riders per train.
