It is the tallest flying coaster in the world (19 feet taller than Flying Dinosaur at Universal Studios Japan) and shares the speed record with Flying Dinosaur, at 62 mph. Its cars allow riders to ride in a face-down position for the ultimate flying experience. It contains a 124 foot tall pretzel loop, the tallest in the world, which exerts 4.5 G's. Tatsu closed in June 2021 and reopened in September 2021. Tatsu formerly had red and yellow track with orange supports. In September 2021, Tatsu closed to be repainted.
On March 12, 2022, Tatsu reopened with dark orange track and green supports.
Tatsu is a Japanese word that means "Winged Beast".
