I love rollercoasters, and this one was super fun! The line was really fast and didn't take very long to get through. The coaster itself is very jerky so if you are wearing earrings, I suggest taking them out and putting them in one of the lockers available (which if you also have a purse or sunglasses you'll have to...

Decided to do this after walking by and really glad I did. This is a really fun coaster that goes around the outside of the casino and it has a loop.

Is not for the money, but when you love the rollercoasters you like to get the ride more than twice, but at the price you preffer to get dizzy by drinks than by this rollercoaster.

This coaster is rough compared to the bunch of other coasters I have done. The ride is a bit pricy. However, it is worth the experience in Las Vegas.

ok, i have heard all types of review about this roller coaster, and i know the reputation of the designer (not good) so i didn't expect much. What I got was beat to death thanks to that shoulder harness. The transitions and turns on this roller coaster are hateful, beat me side to side. Seriously, they charge $15/ride, and I... More

Yes the coaster is old and a little rough compared to new coasters, but it is still a lot of fun and is one of the best thrills on the stip. We ride it at least once a year and have a blast every time.
