“Fun enough with friends”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's obviously not a long ride, which is good for my shoulders, which are still hurting today two days later from all the bumping around. Worth it to say you've done it, I guess.

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

$14 to ride the roller coaster and worth it. Not the longest, fastest etc. but it had me screaming and I am a 63 year old that enjoys this type of ride. If you are in Vegas and do not have the b***s to do the Stratosphere then give this a try.

“Expensive, but worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Did not expect as thrilling a ride as this turned out to be. The $14 price tag is expensive, but a bargain compared to the thrill rides at the Stratosphere -- and you get a much better ride.

If at all possible, do the ride at night. And believe them when they say to stow all loose objects (including glasses) before boarding.

“Thrill Ride for sure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My friend and i got there first thing in the morning on a Sunday so we did not experience any lines. Good thing too, so we did not have to build up a lot of anxiety about the ride. I would compare this coaster with many of the Disney or Universal coasters. The only thing to warn people about is to expect to feel like you were in a prize fight. You get tossed around pretty good in the restraints before the ride is done.Highly recommend this.

“Super fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

A must do. Thrilling ride - to do BEFORE the stratosphere. Check schedule. No small children, great fun. Not as tame as it might look, can also easily be overlooked, but don't miss out on this figther jet ride!
