Stinger was an inverted shuttle coaster featuring special back-to-back seats. The train car was pulled up a tower in reverse and released through a cobra roll element and a vertical loop. The train then ascended another tower and dropped to run the course in reverse. The ride was painted royal blue and featured a scorpion theme. It was one of only four Invertigos built by Vekoma.
On August 10, 2009 at California's Great America, the ride stopped on the lift hill, stranding a full train of riders for over three hours. Riders had to be evacuated by fire crews. No injuries were reported.
On June 6, 2012, the train stalled again on the lift hill. Riders were stranded for 90 minutes before being lowered into the station.
