History[edit | edit source]

Photographs of dark green track at a manufacturing facility were posted online in April 2016. It was subsequently determined that they belonged to a clone of Takabisha.[1] Gerstlauer and Triple Five Group officially revealed this coaster and a spinning coaster in November 2017. A model of the two roller coasters was on display during IAAPA 2017.[2]

The name was revealed during the American Coaster Enthusiast's Eastcoaster event on February 2, 2019.[3]

Design[edit | edit source]
