Ride experience

Once the train exits the station, it makes a left turn and heads up the first chain lift hill, this lift hill ends in a pre-drop. Riders then navigate through a winding section of track, passing some scenery before reaching the second lift. The train then climbs the second chain lift hill, this lift ends in a downwards curve. Riders then travel through some turns down a hill. The train then enters the first tunnel, immediately followed by a helix. The second tunnel follows after the helix. This tunnel is quite small, with only one car of the train able to fit inside at a time. The ride's brakes follow directly after a turn out of the tunnel.
