The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 2 across, 4 seats per car for a total capacity of 20 riders.
* Notes: Being a powered "dragon coaster" design, the third wheel system takes you through the circuit 2 times, never stopping at the station as similiar family coasters do. The propulsion system is made up of this "third wheel", a tire lowered down to grab and run along the teeth built into the middle of the track at certain areas.
* Structure: Traditional red, green, & white cars with gold sash trim. Column supports & track are white. Rudolph heads up the front of the train, while Santa's bag of presents brings up the rear.
* Elements: After the first turn out of the station, there is a climb around the pines, spiraling helix, long run to another set of trees, and an unbelievable spiraling helix before running back to the station to do it all over again, never slowing down.
* Features: This obviously looks like a custom design, which works out nicely as you gracefully whisk past tall pine trees.

The Verdict
This family ride has quite the understated look inasmuch as both spirals reach good speed which makes it quite fun to ride for all.
I rate it 3 Star's
