I am a roller coaster fan, and I think this is one of the best...not only it is fast, it is also very long, with expected dips and drops...this is not to be missed!

I'm a roller coaster fanatic, so this was right up my alley. It creeks and throws you around, and it has great speed and falls, but there are no corkscrews or upside down moments. It's just good fun.

The first drop is amazing! The kids will love it. However, if you have ANY type of back issues, stay away. It is very rickety and slams you from side to side at times.

A world class coaster in the middle of the desert. Have been on this coaster twice now, albeit 17 years apart! It's pretty rough now and could do with a bit of TLC, but that's OK because this is still a great coaster and well...More
