Yellow track with orange supports. Prior to the 2005 season, the track was teal and the supports red.
After the train is locked and checked, it moves out of the station, towards the 109.3 foot chain lift hill. Then, when the train crests the lift hill, it makes a rightward U-turn drop. Next, the train goes through a roll over. Then, it makes a slight turn to the left, before a sidewinder. After the sidewinder, the train makes a 270 degree helix to the right, before a double in-line twist. Then, the train makes a U-turn to the right, before a dip. Finally, the train hits the brake run, before the train makes a right turn to the transfer track. The ride ends when the train makes another right turn to the station.
2 trains with 10 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row, for a total of 20 riders per train. The train originally had eight cars, but at some time the park extended it to ten.
