Elements

Ride experience

The coaster turns 180 degrees out of the station and ascends the 90 foot chain lift hill. A left hand turn and the ride drops 85 feet. A series of low airtime hills take the ride under the lift hill of the Hades 360 roller coaster and out to the back of the park. A high speed turn around puts the track parallel to the first set of hills. More airtime hills and a right hand turn bring the train back to the station.

Trains

Single train with 5 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 20 riders. Built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company.
