Hold onto your seat!

Very fun roller coaster. It's fast, and it's scary. Kinda pricy but I think it was worth it. Nothing quite like being terrified with an awesome view.

It was quite a treat to get to ride a rollercoaster of this quality without having to line up for ages. We could have gotten straight on the first one, but waited for the 2nd to get front row seats. The initial climb of the rollercoaster goes quite high and is quite scenic, although in scorching heat I was just... More

This is a must if you have teens, young adults in Vegas although it is quite expensive ($14 per ride $25 all day) and a short ride rot the price. The hotels are badly signposted so it takes some finding, the queues are not too bad though (I went in August). The ride is exciting but it is bumpy so... More

This was a good choice for a parent trying to entertain 2 teens. The cost was a bit high, $16 per person, but there's not much free & cheap in Vegas for teens. Beware it's a very rough ride. My shoulders were sore for days after.

The views from this coaster are amazing and the ride is nice and long compared to some others. Only bad point is that it's not very comfortable so I came off of it with sore shoulders and back but all in all I loved the ride.

Extreme ride. More intensive than it initially looks. Recommended only if you really like rollercoasters. Made me a bit sick.

A little pricey but sure that's just Vegas for everything but an excellent experience. A must do if your new it, best to wait for front row seats it's a frightening ride :)

I hadn't ridden this coaster since it was first built, so I was afraid of the ride suspension since it has aged, and so have I! After a difficult inter-conversation to convince myself to pay the $14 and ride, I went for it. It was the finale of my Vegas trip, and I'm so glad I ended it on a... More

You definitely have to do this ride, if you are a rollercoaster-fan!! The ride is not quite cheap (USD 14) but is definitely worth it (last but not least because of the scenery as most of the ride is in front of the hotel directly on the strip). The ride is not very fast and not hard compared to the... More
