Nice experience!

My first time in a rollercoaster, very fun, with a beautifull view of las vegas. Take money for the photos in the exit attraction.

One of the most fun coasters I've been on. Pretty scary and lots do drops. A little rough on the shoulders and neck but I'm old so yeah.... Highly worth the cost!

Fast, looping and great fun. If you're on the strip, why not? I think must people will want to ride multiple times, so the $25 unlimited ticket makes sense. The are also paid lockers on site for 50c

I am not a huge fan of roller coasters, but had to do this one. It was pretty jerky, but it was so fun at night!!! Definitely a must on the strip.

We went there to ride the roller coaster, but you have to be 54 inches tall. We were surprised, as my daughter was able to ride every roller coaster at Disney World last December. She loves roller coasters and was disappointed, however, she has a blast in the arcade and won a few prizes. There is an interactive Star Wars... More

This is a fantastic rollercoaster. As you go up high at the start you have fantastic views of the Vegas strip and then it proceeds through a whole range of curves homes including a full 360 loop. I would recommend this coaster wherever it was as you get a long and exciting ride. The fact that it is in Las... More

I really enjoyed the roller coaster and the amusement arcade, it was a good escape from the relentlessness of Las Vegas strip. Get yourself down here and have fun. The coaster is a right laugh!

Roller coaster is fun but a little expensive ($14 a person). Went both during the day and at night. Night was better, do to seeing the lights but even during the day it was good and not too hot. Two different pictures are offered - one before the coaster leaves the station and one during it. The arcade has some... More

This is a really fun rollercoaster which gives you a nice view of this end of the strip (if you can keep your eyes open). Definitely recommend sitting in the front carriage for the best view.

I have ridden hundreds of coasters all over and this one is one of the roughest rides out of all of them I have been on. It is rougher than an old woody coaster. (wooden roller coaster) Literally stepped off with an instant headache. This coaster needs to seriously be redone!
