When the coaster starts, the train is pulled backwards up the lift hill, then dropped through the loading gate through a cobra roll and then a vertical loop. At the end of this cycle the train is pulled up the lift hill at the end of the track, then dropped once again allowing the train to go back through the loops backwards.
In June 2001, a faulty sensor led to the brakes not engaging as the train passed backwards through the station. This allowed the train to enter the cobra roll and become stuck in the middle of the element. It took 90 minutes to evacuate all riders. A platform was subsequently installed in this location to ease evacuation should the train get stuck there again.
