I enjoy this coaster very well. Make sure you put your stuff in the lockers before you go on the ride. If you don't what to lose any of your stuff. I was on it on my first night when i got there day off.

My kids went on it twice and enjoyed it , they said it was better at night , if you go back it's half price for the second visit during the same day .The queues were v short both times .Its around 2and a half minutes long so not cheap but worth doing

It's a short roller coaster but it was fun. It is a bit rough and your head does bounce around a little bit but it's not so bad. The view from the top before it falls it pretty great. It's rough but for the price and fun it provides the coaster is worth it

After visiting the casino we just had to have a go on the roller coaster, a very odd view of the strip upside down but well worth it, It was just like the old coaster of the day, if your used to the new theme park rides were its all smooth you need a reminder of how it used to... More

Ok but not a very long ride. It was over too quick. Fast but uncomfortable ride. Not bad for a 'hotel attraction' though.

If you can find a coupon so that you don't have to pay $14 each find it and use it. Also be sure to have 50 cents to buy a key for a locker to place your purse in or anything else loose like sunglasses. I was surprised that the ride was as short as it was, choppy in places... More

We did enjoy the roller coaster. We waited to ride front row, since it will be the only time we ever ride. It was a long, fun ride with some unexpected turns and twists. However, it was extremely rough. Your shoulder and/or neck will definitely be sore afterward. For that reason alone, we will probably not ride again. However, I... More

The coaster is thrilling and be aware that you spin upside down and in a corkscrew - you'll get some bruises and bumps though. It's definitely not a smooth ride!

Nothing about this rollercoaster is fun. First you pay 14$ for a one-time ride (+7$ if you want a re-ride or 25$ for all-day pass). After you pick a line, don't pull out your cellphone at all because you'll be sent to the 50c lockers because no matter how tight your pockets are, you can't have your wallet or cellphone... More
