History[edit | edit source]
Design[edit | edit source]
While Switchback has 1,196 feet of track, the train travels over 1,980 feet of track per cycle. The ride has a spike with a maximum angle of 87 degrees. There are nine airtime points and a maximum bank angle of 104 degrees.
Switchback makes two passes through a building, which was formerly a small grocery store.
Ride experience[edit | edit source]
After rolling out of the station, the train makes a right turn and climbs the chain lift hill, followed by a drop. Riders go past a tunnel, which was a former small grocery store and a 104 degree over-banked curve. The train goes through a second tunnel and an airtime hill. Following a left turn, riders ascend a vertical rollback. The train completes the circuit in reverse, before slowing down on the brakes after the drop. Riders move through a switch track, followed by a left turn that returns to the station.
Trains[edit | edit source]
2 trains with 4 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row for a total of 8 riders per train. The front car of Switchback was on show at Gravity Group's IAAPA 2014 booth. The trains have a locomotive theme.
