This was the most unique roller coaster I have ever ridden. You wont need the brake. Hold the handles forward all the time and feel the Gs as you whip around the turns. Bring gloves if it is cold out.

What a great ride. You can control how fast it goes and we loved the rain shield...It was cold and it was raining, but we were fine.
