Elements

Maxx Force is a compressed air launch coaster manufactured by S&S Worldwide which features 5 inversions, including the world's fastest heartline roll taken at 60 mph and the world's tallest double inversion, a dog tongue at 175 feet. The ride also features the launch with the highest acceleration in America, launching from 0 - 78 mph in 1.8 s (1.78 g's of acceleration).

Maxx Force's layout is very straightforward; after the intial 78 mph air launch, Maxx Force steps up into the 175 foot dog tongue, followed by a right-hand turn underneath the step up. Then it enters the 60mph heartline roll, rising upwards into the maxx dive loop finale.

Trains[edit | edit source]

2 trains with 4 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 16 riders per train.
