Ride experience[edit | edit source]
The ride begins with a vertical lift hill. After cresting the hill, riders descend a vertical drop and straight into a large vertical loop. The car then enters a zero-g roll, followed by a stengel dive and a banked curve. The car then enters a dive loop that sends it back towards the station. The car travels through the corkscrew and over two airtime hills before hitting the brake run.
Trains[edit | edit source]
3 cars. Riders are arranged 3 across in 3 rows for a total of 9 riders per car.
