This roller coaster was scary, and sensationnal for sure, but it was also designed to break your back and neck. I had no will to use the half price reward on a second run: i didn't want to have one. To experience very carrefully !

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.

$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.

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.

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.
