Ride experience

On Vonkaputous, visitors rode in a roller coaster car appearing as a boat, seating 10 passengers in 5 rows. After leaving the station, the car descended into a 90 degree turn leading to the chain lift hill. After reaching the top, the right-hand first drop led through a tunnel with mist effect. After the left-hand second drop, the car splashed to the water. After the splash, the car slowly passed to the station through an s-curve.

Trains

3 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 5 rows for a total of 10 riders per car.
