Ride experience

After leaving the station, riders are taken to a jungle-like area. At the launch, dinosaurs are seen on the screen to the right. The door opens in front of the riders and the train is launched out of the building. After a horseshoe to the left, the train drops into a vertical loop. A small, slightly overbanked curve follows the loop and leads into the trim brakes. The brake run is followed by a small drop, which is followed by the first inversion of the twisted horseshoe roll, which consists of two tight corkscrew-like inversions connected by a 180° curve to the right. The train then travels over an airtime hill that goes through the loop and another curve, which leads into the final inversion, an in-line twist. A last curve to the right and the train reaches the final brake run. The door opens, leading the train back into the building.

Trains

3 trains with 5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 20 riders per train.
